Does the sound of laughter drive you up a wall? Are you similar to the Grinch not being able to listen to all the happy Whos in Whoville? If the answer is yes than I have a new product for you! I’m exaggerating a bit, but the product is called Kill The Cann. The purpose of Kill The Cann is to eliminate that annoying, fake, canned laughter on TV. Finally! Where was this in the 80s and 90s? Support the new Kickstarter here:
When you think about it, it does seem kind of strange that there are laugh tracks over your favorite TV shows. It’s almost like they don’t trust the audience to know what’s a joke and what is not. It’s a little condescending if you ask me.
Why This Product Was Created
“For some of us, it is really annoying! For viewers, canned laughter can distort the dialogue, make it hard to hear clearly or understand, or simply insert laughs in places that you don’t think are funny. Some of us really don’t like laugh tracks and wondered if a device could be built to remove the canned laughter. As scientists with expertise in image and audio signal processing, as well as speech and vocalization analysis, we were all intrigued. Undesirable canned laughter is definitely a “sound” issue – which is right up our alley. A survey of others revealed this was a common issue. Over 80% of our survey audience replied that laugh tracks on television shows annoyed them. Armed with that insight, we decided to design a simple do-it-yourself solution that anyone could use with his/her own TV.”
What Product Does
“Kill The Cann (KTC) reduces or removes laughter from the television audio using our?advanced signal processing algorithm?(patent pending). Our design works with existing HDMI streaming devices like your DVR and Chromecast, by simply connecting the HDMI cable of your DVR to?our device and then connecting it to your TV. It is very simple to use. Just turn on the switch to suppress laughter in any show you are watching. The available audio tracks of a multi-track television program are processed to remove or reduce certain components of the program, especially audience sounds. This applies to any program which is supplied with several audio channels, whether provided by cable, DVD, Internet streaming, or otherwise.”
How It Works
“A single, multi-channel electronic audio stream enters from the left and is split into single channels. ?The channels are collectively processed in block P above and reassembled into a multi-channel audio stream, which is output on the right. In the middle, the audio streams are filtered in several ways to isolate the audience sounds to be removed or reduced. To understand what we do, you need to know how audio engineers assemble the sounds of a sitcom. Generally, music/special effects get a left and right channel, the left and right sides of the audience get left and right channels, and one channel is dedicated to low-frequency sounds (bass). Finally, the performers get one channel – which they share with the middle of the audience. In our processing, each of the audience tracks and the performance track get special attention.”
When I saw this product, it got me thinking where was this product in the 80s and 90s at the height of sit com popularity? How much more enjoyable would Friends or Seinfeld be without the annoying laugh tracks? I think audiences today are much more sophisticated, laugh tracks are not even close to being necessary. If you are re-watching Friends episodes on Netflix just think how useful this product would be? Please consider supporting Kill the Cann’s $54,000 goal on Kickstarter today.

The Complete Story
“We recently got married and immediately moved to Utah. On the way to Utah our car broke down in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere and we ended up having to pay for a 50-mile tow, a new alternator, a hotel room, and a rental car. We did not plan on having these expenses and it has really put us in a tough financial situation. I am asking for some help to get out and back on our feet. We are both in college and trying our best to make it month to month. We sincerely appreciate anything you can give to help. Anything extra donated will go to help us pay for college. We are both working 20+ hours a week and full-time students. If you can’t donate a share would be much appreciated.”

This is what the happy couple looked like on their wedding day before all this happened. If goal is funded the smiles will surely return back to their faces.

GoodGrid is the first Mac Slicing App that produces creative collages, Polyscape, and much more, within seconds. It’s a app that the makers claim to be powerful yet extremely easy to use. With GoodGrid you can get creative within seconds or simply let GoodGrid suggest automatic layouts for you and go from there.
GoodGrid makes being creative with your photos easy and fun, but to further develop the app they need your help on Kickstarter. Visit: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2071365832/goodgrid-first-mac-slicing-app-collages-polyscape
The app makes beginners creative and saves lots of time for creative people. Complex collages, for example, can be created in less 5 minutes using this app while Photoshop takes 2+ hours.
“Collages combine any number of photos to an emotional story, no matter if you use it as a facebook banner, Christmas card or in a photo-book. Polyscape combines scenes in so many beautiful ways. It is one of the many attractive abstract art forms that, GoodGrid opens the doors for wide. Before GoodGrid, dedicated collage apps where extremely limiting, to become creative you had to spend hours with professional creative tools – which can do everything, but are simply not dedicated to this work.”
What Collages Look Like
What Pollyscapes Look Like
1) Help us get GoodGrid off the ground, so it can soon make everybody happy, from cellphone-photographers to professionals. We need to take time away from our other projects to turn GoodGrid into a rock solid, easy to use Mac App with all the features we want others to have.
2) GoodGrid is Édouard’s Wish-App and it can become your dream: Your input can influence GoodGrid’s features! Supporters can get involved from day one! GoodGrid will be an absolute dream App and even today there is nothing to compare – not even a combination of tools.

Before one had to purchase equipment costing $12,000. William Fox’s goal is to change that paradigm with the Unique Metal Detectors app. With the help of this Patreon if successful you will be able to actually detect paying gold for a few hundred dollars using your phone.
What’s The Goal?
“It’s my goal to create gold detection apps as mods. I’ve proven they will find gold by working with samples and testing for years in the field. As well I can modify cameras to do the same for a few hundred dollars. There is actually no real camera that will detect gold and gems.”
Who Is William Fox?
“I have a B.Sc majoring in Earth Sciences and have been looking at the cheapest alternative for about 15 years.”
What Campaign Is About
“Inventing metal detectors is inspiring but it helps to have some R&D money for things like videos, and tools to make the actual detectors for testing.”
