It’s that time of the week when we look at what creative ideas Canadians are raising money to support.
Check out these Canadian crowdfunding picks-of-the-week:
Breathe – The Meditation Lamp
Meditation is a good way to relax but getting in the right frame of mind can be a challenge. This lamp looks to make it easier. Users breathe in and out along with the lamp as it brightens and dims. It’s pretty simple and straightforward, which means it should be easy to use.
It also uses blue Himalayan salt which looks pretty cool. The lamp is $59 but there are several lower price points for early backers, though numbers are limited and some have already been completely snapped up.
The campaign is looking to raise $8,500. So far it’s at around a quarter of that.
MODR: The world’s most powerful modular case
Most cell phone cases are just a case – this one is a lot more than that.
It’s a lens mount, wireless charger, allows you to add a projector or a solar battery and has a built-in USB hub, allowing for more options. It also protects your phone.
Right now it’s just for the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 and S6 but other plans are in the works to add other phones. Cases start at US$59 and, depending on the options, go up to US$119. The campaign is looking to raise US$70,000. It raised just shy of $25,000 in the first three days.
The whole space-combat genre of games used to be pretty big back in the days of Wing Commander but now its sort of fallen by the wayside. This game promises big battles, with customized spaceships and strategy, through the command of allies and energy management.
The creators say they’ve already put in a lot of work and they just need a bit more money to get the game across the finish line. They’re trying to raise $7,500, right now they’re approaching $2,000 with three weeks to go.
$15 gets a digital copy of the game.
