With GripBeats you can play and create music, without holding any real musical instruments. And more in our crowdfunding section: a small tool for diagnosing your car’s malfunctions and new ecological glasses for coffee on the go.
Kickstarter and Indigogo are the world’s largest and most popular fundraising platforms, providing a platform for many technology projects outside and beyond, enabling them to raise funds for public development and production. Although it is important to remember that this is not a store or an old company, and quite a few cases of projects have failed, leaving supporters without product and money, so take this into account.
The bracelet that makes the Air Guitar a real guitar
Can we already declare a trend? Last week, we brought you Orba – a new little musical instrument created to make everyone play intuitively.
This week we found an equally cool project created more or less for the same purpose. GripBeats is a gland connected to a dedicated app that allows you to play with gestures only.
It is powered by motion sensors and allows you to create sounds when drumming in the air for example or just dancing and playing at the same time. If he was a musical superhero in the world, surely this was part of his extravaganza.
The filmmakers say that they have decided to answer those who want to express the music that is played in his head but without the need to transfer years of learning about musical instruments.
In other words, go straight to the creative part of the music.
GripBeats has a few situations:
When not used it is worn as a bracelet when you want to use it you wrap it on the palm and it can also be opened so that it can be played like on keyboards. With the app, you can choose one of 20 musical instruments and play it by more than 40 gestures.

Be a mechanic at home
Most of us have not run to the doctor for any nonsense lately, mainly because in recent years all kinds of home appliances have been developed that can give us an initial response and guide us whether to run to the health fund or even better to stay home with a painkiller. THINKDIAG does exactly the same for cars only.
This is a small diagnostic device that connects to the vehicle’s computer (OBD II) and a dedicated application, analyzes the condition of the vehicle and tests systems such as windows, straighteners, headlights and more. THINKDIAG actually replaces the cumbersome devices found in garages, with large monitors and loads of cable, it can go into your pocket and help troubleshoot anywhere.
According to the manufacturers, the software supports 95% of the car models and allows you to talk to a mechanic in case you cannot solve the fault alone.
Throw in the plastic lids
The climate crisis and the need to preserve the environment bring with them all kinds of new solutions for producing products from consumable and recycled materials; Switching from disposable to multi-product, And there are also solutions designed to completely eliminate products that harm the earth.
Unocup is a cup designed to completely erase the plastic lids we take with To Go Coffee, and usually immediately throw in the trash.
It is a paper cup and ergonomically patented design. To close it, fold up its top so that it creates an opening for drinking, and you can also drink it when it’s open.
Its creators say that not only is it better for the environment, but it is even cheaper to make from the glasses and lids we are used to.
