The Backerjack Podcast

Backerjack focuses on covering the world of crowdfunded product innovation. Backerjack generally considers a crowdfunded product to be one where backers can receive the product as a reward for backing or as part of a pre-order. On this podcast, veteran industry analyst and Backerjack founder Ross Rubin (@rossrubin) and longtime tech blogger Steve Sande (@stevensande) give their take on campaigns that can either define the evolution of tech or become footnotes to history.

In Episode 17 of the Backerjack Podcast, Steven Sande and Ross Rubin check out some of the latest products seeking funds and preorders:

  • HearNotes, an alternative to Bluetooth headsets that offer higher audio quality and a more reliable connection.
  • Nexpaq, a case for the iPhone and Galaxy S6 that can accommodate up to six modules ranging from flash memory to an alcohol breathalyzer
  • Zwing, a boombox with punch that incorporates an Android-based touchscreen for streaming or playing back local music and movies.

Notes: We discussed Zwing in advance of seeing its Indiegogo project page. The link above points to more details about prcing and expected availability. Also, a similar product, the Zettaly Avy, has contacted its original Kickstarter backers to note that it is ready to ship its devices.

Many thanks to HearNotes for sponsoring this episode! Please support its campaign.
