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.

Welcome to the Backerjack podcast, where each week industry analyst Ross Rubin and tech blogger Steve Sande bring you a sampling of crowdfunded projects from Kickstarter, Indiegogo and beyond. 

TUAW has been shut down by AOL, so Steve invites you to get your Apple-related news and reviews from a new source starting on February 9: Apple World Today

This week, we picked three campaigns and a pre-order project to discuss:

  • Bluewire: Imagine a Bluetooth headset that can record your calls, act as a motion-sensing alarm system, and more... 
  • Luna: The Internet of Things enters the bedroom with Luna, a bedsheet set that can trigger other devices, provide just the right amount of warmth on both sides of the bed, and let you know just how well you're sleeping.
  • Prynt: Slap this case onto your iPhone, and you can print your own instant photos. It's a little bit retro and a lot of impressive technology.

Ross and Steve also spend a few minutes discussing the new Narrative Clip 2, a vastly improved version of the wearable lifelogging camera that now comes with a better lens, higher resolution, and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Retailers, manufacturers and investors seeking the next category, product or feature should take a look at Backerjack's new Product Innovation Pipeline Reports (PIPR), which track the most innovative products in a number of categories. 

We'll be back with Episode 6 of the Backerjack Podcast soon. Be sure to tell all of your friends who follow crowd funded projects about the podcast and make sure they subscribe on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-backerjack-podcast/id955301362?mt=2
