PACKAGING FOR BATH GEL MADE FROM SOAP
SOAPBOTTLE is billed as a zero-waste system—a container for bath gel that is made entirely of soap, including a recycled paper label. After using the bath gel, you use the soap.
The soap is biodegradable, using no animal testing and all-natural ingredients.
Open SOAPBOTTLE by cutting the marked corner, then place it on a sponge or hang it with a ribbon. After using the body care liquid, close the bottle with the reusable metal clip.
The future retail price is unavailable, but Kickstarter Rewards backers could buy three SOAPBOTTLES for 44 euros (about $53 U.S). Shipping is scheduled for May 2022.
DRAWING PENCIL AND HOLDER
Ferrule is a pencil holder that combines premium pen design with a wood-cased graphite pencil. Its highlight is a double-helix clutch mechanism that twists to secure the pencil in place.
A collet grips the pencil so it can extend to many desired lengths; the eraser is replaceable and can be extended easily.
The pencils use PEFC Certified incense cedar, which is not painted but has a light coat of natural nitrous cellulose. Unlike lacquered or painted pencils, Ferrule pencils will be fully biodegradable.
Optional accessories include a leather sheath, as well as a notebook. Ferrule will retail for about $95 or £68, with an October 2021 shipping timetable.
Reevo’s patent-pending hubless wheels are built from aerospace-grade alloys and engineered for maximum durability, impact tested to be safe up to 265 lbs. Strong but lightweight, the bike comes with a powerful electric drivetrain.
Reevo is billed as virtually theft proof with its one-touch fingerprint sensor; integrated, automatic lock; and GPS tracking. An advanced wheel-locking mechanism, integrated within the frame, nullifies bolt cutters.
An ambient light sensor detects darkness and automatically turns on and off the bright headlamps and taillight.
The premium Reevo airless will retail for $3,998, the airless for $3,499 with shipping for crowdfunding Rewards backers set for July.
Torshn is a puzzle made from anodized aluminum, with a matte finish and featuring glass marbles that are the centerpiece of the challenge.
The goal is to align the colors to each other by sliding the marbles and twisting the halves. Like Rubik’s Cube and the original orb puzzle, the puzzle is complex enough to be fun after multiple solves but simple enough to be approachable.
Torshn’s makers say it helps improve brain health and problem-solving skills, and boost productivity. The sleek design makes for an attractive desk accessory.
With a future $60 retail price, Torshn is set for delivery to crowdfunding Rewards backers in September 2021.
