Crowdfunding Mailbox: CA7CH Lightbox Live Streaming Camera, ISSA & ChargeAll

posted Jun 23, 2014, 9:55 PM by Siamak Ebarhimi

We have a threesome of tech products this week from our crowdfunding mailbox.  We really had many solid campaigns emailed us to the past couple weeks.  Over time the campaigns  are getting better structured, pitch videos are consistently more professional and products are more refined.  Sure we still see the occasional campaign that is looking to raise $2 million that has a single backer at $20 but thankfully they are becoming less frequent. You do have to wonder about those campaigns though…crowdfunding marketing

First up is CA7CH Lightbox.  I want to say right off the bat:  GoPro – look out.  CA7CH Lightbox, by Catch Motion, is a small, portable still and video camera that streams live and stores to the cloud.  Clip it to your shirt and let your friends join you in whatever adventure you are experiencing -without actually being there. Even better: it is water CA7CH Lightboxproof (uncertain if it floats though).  CA7CH uses your iPhone as the relay point (they are working on the Android thing).  I think this is really cool and the crowd concurs. The campaign crushed their goal of raising $80,000 in just over a day.  The campaign is over $140,000 now only 3 days in.  So yep – this is a success. NYC based entrepreneurs Rom Eizenberg, Robert Kowalik and Leif Chastaine came up with this concept.  Crowdfunding on Kickstarter now and shipping November 2014.crowdfunding advertising

ISSA by ForeoISSA by Foreo is a crowdfunding project that is taking an everyday device, rethinking it and delivering a new approach with new features for something we all use (hopefully we all use). ISSA is a toothbrush – to be precise an electronic one that is made out of silicon that promises to brush better, more hygienically and – if you check out below – is way sexier than any toothbrush I have ever seen.  Crowdfunding on Indiegogo the campaign has easily surpassed their $25,000 goal.  This team is from Stockholm, Sweden.  ISSA is ready to ship – all you have to do is back and you will be the proud owner of an ISSA Toothbrush with “Innovative WhiteTooth Technology”.indiegogo marketing

ChargeAllChargeAll solves an enigma that I endure all too often.  Sitting in an airport, bar, cafe – anywhere else but the office – and my MacBook Air battery goes to zero.  Then I have to either fight for an outlet or find the one table in a bar that is close to an outlet.  It’s really a pain in the ass so don’t get me going.  Sure I have portable batteries for my iPhone or iPad but sometimes I need more juice.  ChargeAll claims the title of the “Worlds Smallest Portable Power Outlet”.  It is effectively a beefy, yet stylish, battery where you can charge your iPad, iPhone AND plug in your three prong laptop plug.  ChargeAll claims three full charges if you are packing a Pro.  This is something I need starting tomorrow.  Crowdfunding on Indiegogo  this campaign is looking to raise $30,000 and they are about half way their.  ChargeAll was founded by CEO Jeffrey Maganis out of Newport Beach, California.  Scheduled to ship early Fall 2014.kickstarter marketing

Why We Are Doing This

What began as a simple conversation about building a camera fit for our times sparked a curiosity among three friends to re-imagine how we capture and share our daily experiences. We created CA7CH to make the experience of “catching” and sharing life’s moments easy, spontaneous and fun. After a year of hard work, Lightbox was born, a camera that would allow people to see life in a new way.CrowdFunding advertizing
