Are you in the market for a new car, but tired of the same boring car ads with static pictures? If the answer is yes there’s a better three dimensional way coming to a web site near you.

The Kickstarter campaign called Smart 360 Imaging is a simple, cost effective, and mobile solution to creating smart 360° images for car ads or really anything else that requires a more engaging experience. The Showaround concept was created by Xin Wang. One day he discovered that there is no easy way to create a 360° views around an object. Of course there are professional studios that will make a 360 degree image, but the costs are still too high. Showaround enables users to capture a multi-angle views of an object using just a smartphone device and then integrate the view easily, without hassle.

Company Mission

“We are the Showaround team, and our mission is simple: give the market a simple, cost-effective, DIY mobile solution for creating and applying Interactive 360° Object Visualization for commercial uses. This representatives a hugely beneficial alternative to paying for equipment and studios.”

This app is still under testing, it’s a work in progress. The Capture 360 mobile app is the ultimate 360° and 3D tool.

Any Cool Rewards? 

Yes, there are many cool rewards if you donate on Kickstarter. Pledge just $10 and get on the contributors list, the latest updates, PDF thank you card, and early access to beta versions. The rewards go all the way up to $599 and $2,500. For $599 get 1-year subscription to cloud 360, includes 500 360° images and everything else in previous reward. Donate $2,500 and you will become a sponsor at their official launch party in Atlanta. In addition you will be treated as a founder in a top Chinese restaurant and discuss their journey.

Conclusion

The genesis of the Showaround came in 2016 and lots of progress has been made since then, but they still need your help. Please consider donating to their Kickstarter campaign and finally get this idea off the ground and into customer’s hands.

Treasure Hunt for $100,000 Cash With Hidden Secrets

  • Comments Off on Treasure Hunt for $100,000 Cash With Hidden Secrets

When’s the last time you’ve had an adventure? If the answer is anything more than a few days ago you need to check out the this new campaign on Kickstarter called ‘Hidden Secrets.’ I think when technology works best its when developers mix the real world with technology tools such as the mobile phone. When it’s used to get people out of their cars, houses, and connect to the real world and people in the real world that’s when technology is at its best. ‘Hidden Secrets’ is one of those rare ideas that I think has done this right. Using your mobile phone, explore the real world and find $100,000 is hidden cash. Sound fun? Keep reading and visit Kickstarter for details + support their campaign.

Support Hidden Secrets on Kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1692501800/hidden-secrets-a-mobile-treasure-hunt-for-100000-c?ref=edx9wr

Hidden Secrets is a mobile treasure quest for $100,000 real world cash. Not coins, tokens, points, etc. It’s real world money! It’s a journey through time, a cryptic trail, full of hidden treasures, and puzzlement. The game with be available for iOS and Android here pretty soon once this Kickstarter is completed and can be played from anywhere in the world.

“Using both real-world and augmented reality game play, combined with hand-illustrated 2D puzzling and storytelling, it’s meant to work both your body and your brain! It’s gaming with a purpose – with the ultimate goal to (virtually) find one of 10 hidden treasure locations, each awarding $10,000.”

Kickstarter Hidden Secrets Game

Since it can be played around the world. Imagine going on a world travel adventure and playing this mobile game along the way. Incorporating that into your travel fun. Rest assured you don’t actually have to visit geographical locations to win cash rewards, but still would be fun. You can win once, twice, or maybe even all 10 times for the total $100,000. The more clever you are the more you will win.

What’s The Story Like?

“The journey begins with the unfolding of a curious story. In the eye of a storm, you find an ancient journal that belonged to an adventurer, scientist, thief. He’s on the run from a secret society that will stop at nothing to find him – to learn his secrets of time travel and to recover their stolen treasure. As he races across the world, he leaves clues in his journal where he’s buried treasure – treasure for you to find.”

The story will get you out of the house and on an adventure, best feature of all in my opinion. It REQUIRES real life exploration as you search for game pieces in your area. Pokemon Go did this, of course, but there were no real world stakes, nothing real. Hidden Secrets puts $100,000 cash on the line for people to find. When you raise the stakes, there is more to lose, more reason to take this game seriously, ultimately making it more engaging and fun in the process.

Are There Any Rewards?

Yes, there are lots and lots of rewards in this Kickstarter campaign starting with $5 which gets you digital wallpaper and blog invite. The pledging goes all the way up to the $2,500 level which gets you the wallpaper, blog, 21x game hints, name in credits, sound track, art book, shirt, decal, signed treasure journal copy, metal reproduction of a gold medallion, leather bond journal, 2 VIP party tickets, and signed original game art.

Support Hidden Secrets mobile app for iOS and Android on Kickstarter today and get ready to play and experience this amazing game in late 2017. Get ready to mix augmented reality technology with old-school puzzling and possibly get rewarded in real life cash.

 

Build Empathy With This Land Is My Land On Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on Build Empathy With This Land Is My Land On Kickstarter

The world right now, more than ever, needs more empathy. There’s a campaign on Kickstarter trying to achieve just that called This Land Is My Land. The author Dubie Toa-Kwapong and illustrator Samuel Fleming are creating a children’s book to help build more empathy for 2+ million children in the United States of America.

Contribute today: 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/789480008/this-land-is-my-land?ref=b8yrlb

This Land Is My Land has a Kickstart goal of $7,500 and so far has raised a very impressive $2,784 with 58 backers. The idea that eventually led to the Kickstarter campaign first began in summer 2017. Nana Adom Mills-Robertson, a senior at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, came up with the idea of creating a children’s book. “Adom approached Dubie Toa-Kwapong, an award-winning writer and Macalester graduate ‘16, with the idea. Dubie agreed with it and created This Land is My Land. However, it was not complete. Samuel Fleming, a junior at Macalester, who doubled as a prominent up-and-coming artist in the Twin Cities, brought life to the characters through art.”

This Land Is My Land

This Land Is My Land (Cover Art)

I’m writing this article after listening to a full day of news reports detailing the Las Vegas mass shooting. I don’t think I need to go into any more detail about Las Vegas, but it is a tragedy. Many people are asking themselves what they should do about it? Can they change this world for the better or are the problems we face too large? I think one this we can do is anywhere possible we have to opportunity to support positive change, positive campaigns, etc. like This Land Is My Land we should. It’s true that “One Bad Egg Ruins an Omelet” but we shouldn’t let that stop us from trying to do good in the world anyway we can.

I’m also reminded of the Starfish Poem below:

Starfish Poem

Basically the poem’s message if you didn’t read it is that even though problems are large we can take small steps to make a difference. It encourages us to get out of a fatalistic mindset, take action, and make a difference if only to one person.

Please support this Kickstarter campaign encouraging empathy among today’s youth. The reading level of this book is aimed for grade’s 1-3. However, anybody can enjoy the book and learn the lessons that it brings up. Pick up your copy of This Land is My Land and support their mission anyway you can.

Who They Are

“My Name is Patrick and i come from Aldingen a Town near Stuttgart in Germany. me and my small team creating this game called Foxfire -Legend Of The Nine Tailed Fox which basically tells the story of flynn a fox who will rescue his family from an evil Warlord. So Our game has already been green lit and the reason for this campaign is that we need more financial help to make this Game even better. A Version for PS4,3 and Vita is also planned which is combined with additional costs. Another wish is to make a a hand drawn intro and ending as a real cartoon like in sonic CD for example. So the more we earn here the better the game will be which does not mean if we earn nothing we will make a bad Game. So you can help to make a top game – IMPORTANT: the Video shows Alpha Footage please keep that in mind.

Foxfire Legend Game

Foxfire Legend Game

The Story

“It’s dark in Urbia, a futuristic city reigned by the evil dictator Ironlord. The people are afraid of their dictator but still obey as Ironlord is the only one offering them the defense to fend of all the potential attackers. One day Ironlord was told by one of his counselors that a huge attack force is incoming even he can’t defeat with his whole army and his only chance of victory is by creating a new weapon strong enough to end all wars and conquer all the other kingdoms, making him the ruler of the whole known world. The dictator, who believes into occulcy and magic, calls in his scientists to create him the strongest weapon. The only problem with the weapon is the huge energy consumption it has. It’s so much that no known energy source is able to supply enough power to activate this weapon. Ironlord in dire need for a solution looks through the old libraries finding a book about an old legend about the “nine tailed fox“. It is said that the nine tailed fox gets his power by absorbing the energy of surrounding foxes, therefore creating an endless arcane energy source called „Foxfire“. Flynn the fox and his family live in the Aztec forest. One evening the earth starts shaking, trees are falling over and a loud metal roaring is sounding through the forest. Flynn tries to hide in a tree stump but has to witness his family being captured by huge metal machines, Ironlords Harvesters. After a long time silence crawls back into the forest, the air itself is burning and Flynn understood what happened. He tearfully pleaded to the heaven itself for help until suddenly a ghost appeared right behind him willing to help him. Flynn and his ghost friend have to learn a lot to find the troublesome path to Urbia to save his family and all the other missing foxes from the Aztec forest.”

The Features

Explore over 30 Levels in five worlds plus. Hidden levels where you can revisit levels to get the good 100 percent ending. Main character with all necessary abilities to pass the game. Local coop mode game setting. Achievements unlockable on any platform, three possible endings, and Easter Eggs.

Risks And Challenges

“If the Kickstarter campaign fails we cant implement the futures we wish and if we reach our goal we can do it. So a higher Kickstarter end result will make the game better because we can afford ideas we have in mind – cartoon Intros Endings etc – better Graphics – PS4 and Vita Versions as well as a Windows Store Version as i mentioned before if this campaign fails we will only make a Steam Version for Windows Mac and Linux and learn from our fails of the past to make a better game next time. If you wanna try the experience simply download the alpha version here: http://www.foxxio.de/ff.zip this demo contains one half level a title screen a map screen demo.”

If you do nothing else play the video of the game. After watching it I don’t see how you’d not want to donate to this campaign. The game looks like so much fun. Give to their Kickstarter campaign today: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foxxio/foxfire-legend-of-the-nine-tailed-fox-plattformer?ref=user_menu I really want to see this game be the best it possibly can.

Hate The Sound Of Laughter? Introducing Kill The Cann

  • Comments Off on Hate The Sound Of Laughter? Introducing Kill The Cann

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:

Kickstarter.com/projects/579932998/kill-the-cann-laugh-track-suppression?token=9e6754b8

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.

Kickstarter laugh

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.”

Kill The Can Laughter

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.

  • Comments Off on Supporting Science Fiction Stories And Novels By JD Maverick

JD Maverick is creating science fiction stories and novels and needs your support on Patreon and Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign is specifically for a web novel named ‘Cross Roads.” Cross Roads is set to be a slice of life/science fiction web novel with the unique theme of “magical girls.” Visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2045434624/cross-roads-web-novel for more details. The more broadly focused second campaign can be found on Patreon where the first $500 will go towards the internet story and novel Maverick. Please consider donating to JD’s Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/JDMav

Campaign Images

Cross Roads Novel  Publish The Novel With Patreon

Right now both campaigns have zero backers. JD Maverick needs your help! Please consider supporter the author and make the next novel come into existence.

Kickstarter Campaign Breakdown

“This campaign will help me cover the costs of publishing the novel independently, like the cover and formatting, as well as the cost of setting up an author website. If I exceed my goal of $2,000, I will use the extra money to pay for advertising and possibly some other marketing activities.”

Kickstarter Campaign Risks?

“Unless a meteor falls from the sky and obliterates me before I can hit “send,” there is not much risk involved with this project. The book is already written, and is already formatted for both the e-book and print book versions. The only issue I can foresee would be that if my day job gets too busy, it might delay me in sending rewards out to everyone as quickly as planned.”

Any Kickstarter Rewards?

Yes, there are rewards! $1+ gets your full name added to the book, $5+ gets you ebook and full name, $20+ gets you previous reward and paperback copy of book, $30+ gets your name and hardcover copy, and finally $50+ gets you paperbook, hardcover, and name. As you can see reward levels are very reasonable. $1+ gets you name, that’s one of best offers I’ve seen.

Support the Kickstarter campaign here:

Patreon Campaign Information

Patreon if you don’t know already is a place mostly for artists and creators that want to earn steady monthly incomes from their work. Patreon is a great place for JD Maverick to crowd fund the novel.

“For the past 15 years, I’ve created the world that was built on a dream, which hopefully will become a reality. I work a full-time day job that quite frankly takes a lot of my time. I have bills to pay and I work at least three jobs.” Patreon will JD transfer from the working world to publishing full time. This campaign is for my internet story and my novel I want to publish. First $500 are reserved for the internet stories. Instead of releasing a chapter every two weeks on a Thursday, I will be releasing a chapter every week when I reach my second goal. Which you can read all the previous and future chapters at Wattpad.com. Patrons pledged to at least the 5$ Tier will get full access to my internet stories in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF Files every month.”

Why Patreon? 

“I work a full-time day job that quite frankly takes a lot of my time. I have bills to pay and I work at least three jobs. Also do podcasting but not really making anything out of that right now. I also do consulting work– whether graphic design– but that is in flux as well. Even on my days off I still work my projects so I don’t know anything about slacking off or even goofing off. To be honest I was never even raised that way. I was always raised by one simple rule. A role that my parents and teach me but the world has taught me: if you don’t work, you don’t eat. Plain and simple.”

Any Patreon Rewards? 

Yes, like Kickstater there are Patreon rewards to be had. $1 gets you a thank you, $5 gets you story access, $10 gets you the novel “Second Renaissance: Bitter Harvest” and access to stories in hi-res PDF files, and finally $20 gets you “Patreon Versions of earlier and future web novels of Second Renaissance, Generation Me and Cross Roads in physical paperback form. Patreon Version of my new novel “Second Renaissance: Bitter Harvest” in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF File. You will get full access to my internet stories in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF File in every release.”
