12 things we hope get funded on Kickstarter


Koduko Origins

This comic book project is set on a horror island of solitude, billed as "Lovecraftian inspired by Japanese folklore."


Barobot holds 12 full-sized bottles and knows 1,000 recipes. So you can tend the party, instead of remembering what’s in a Negroni sbagliato.


For just $12, iCorners give your iPad minimalist protection with tough, clear polycarbonate.

Punk Pizza Tee

We gave up on T-shirts expressing our inner soul. Until we saw this project from freelance photog George Powell.

Mission Denim

Back the blues from Mission Denim and get premium, built-to-last dungarees that will be on heavy rotation in your wardrobe.

Mixed Animals

Mixed Animals are sort of Mr. Potato Head 2.0. These super softies come with magnetic interchangeable parts. Making your dreams of an elephant demon come true.


We’re already breaking out the popcorn for this movie, an "electric fairytale" that follows a day in the life of street hooker Stereo, lo-fi cowboy Analog and a wordless drifter.


Bikers Against Child Abuse

Probably the only redeeming thing about Bad Grandpa was the scene with Bikers Against Child Abuse. This photo project documents the faces behind the organization.

You Are Here - Coast to Coast

This project combines our love of old maps and urban icons. Starts with Portland, Oregon, with plans to spread from sea to shining sea.

Cyanotype photography

Send photographer Ben Panter to Toronto and he’ll produce some of these cool cyanotype pieces. Kick in just $25 for a print.

Castor double-flavored toothpicks

Now you can get the grit out with Castor, a line of toothpicks that comes in dueling flavors like Habanero & Honey, Bacon & Maple and Raspberry & Wasabi. Classy.


Love these stylish modular solutions for your ever-changing work space: You can turn these into desk risers, shelves and stools.

As warmer weather hits even San Francisco, we’re pooling our beer money for a robot bartender. And some wasabi-flavored toothpicks. Our ever-expanding crew could use some of these modular Modos bookshelves and stools, too. There are so many things on Kickstarter that we want — jeans, maps, comic books — that we’re sharing our wish list with you.

Even cranky futurist Jaron Lanier supports Kickstarter — it “turns consumers into a priori funders of innovation” and we’re pretty sure that translates into robotic cocktails for everyone.

Stonebaked Steve: Apple Founder’s Pizza Portrait



Back in the heady days of 1996 — when Apple shares were worth less than the cost of a VHS tape of Independence Day — one of the many awful ideas the company came up with was to latch onto the then-popular trend for theme restaurants, by announcing the debut of Apple Computer cybercafes.

These were supposed to start in Los Angeles, before eventually spreading over the entire world.

Needless to say, they never happened — but if they had done, they may have served pizzas bearing the face of Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs. (Or possibly not, since he wasn’t with the company at the time.)

Either way, if you’ve been waiting for the past two decades to finally have an edible snack in the form of Apple’s late co-founder and CEO, you may want to buy a plane ticket to take you to Papa’s Pizza restaurant in Puerto Rico, where pizza artist Wilhelm Rodriguez can whip you up a pizza pie like the above.

This Amazing Pizza Compass App Will Point You To The Nearest Slice


Finding pizza late at night can be difficult. You go to one restaurant and it’s closed. By the time you make it to your next option you realize it sucks and there’s something better down the way. There’s a new app that’s going to change all that, and it’s called Pizza Compass.

Pizza Compass isn’t just an app, it’s a tool for slice success. The app basically helps you find the nearest pizza joint in a hurry. You can spin the pizza slice to discover pizza joints nearby and the slice will steam when you’re close to a good place.

You can share you favorite pizza spots with friends, find restaurant hours and see reviews so you know you’re not going to eat something that tastes like cardboard. It sounds like a silly app, but it’s probably the greatest tool ever invented for those that like to do some late night drinking on the town.

Check out the Pizza Compass promo video and just try and tell me you’re not excited to give into your next pizza craving:

Snip! Slash! Staple! Make A MacBook Desk Stand From An Old Pizza Box


I always thought the handiest thing I could do with a pizza box was to toss it in the trash and use the little three-legged plastic widget (the one that stops the lid from touching your cheese) as a milking stool for my Barbies [1] .

But I was wrong. Assuming that you can keep the cheesy grease off the box, then a few cuts and folds will turn it into this awesome MacBook stand.

New In iOS 6: Siri Supports Location Services Internationally


Siri will finally find places internationally.
Siri will finally find places internationally.

Being a Brit, one of the most disappointing things about Siri is that it doesn’t support location services in the United Kingdom. Unlike iPhone 4S users in the United States, I can’t ask Siri to find me a nice restaurant nearby, or for the nearest gas station. However, that’s no longer the case in iOS 6, because Siri now supports location services internationally.
