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 sweet Episode 16 of the Backerjack Podcast, Steven Sande and Ross Rubin check out some of the latest products seeking funds and preorders:

  • Flex Cam PIC, a whimsical and inexpensive still and video camera that wraps around objects and comes in a range of colors and silly characters. It has some similarities to Podo.
  • GeniCan, a clip-on to your garbage can or recycle bin that builds your shopping list by scanning the barcodes of products you've consumed. As we note, it has the same goals as SmartQsine.
  • Oomi, a comprehensive and tightly integrated Z-Wave-based home control system that features easy setup. It rivals another recent ambitious smart home project, Paigo.

Notes: During the podcast, there was some confusion as to how Flex Cam PIC transfers images and videos. It appears as though the product's Bluetooth support is for remote shutter activation only; file transfers are done via USB On-The-Go.
