8 fantastic crowdfunding projects every techie ought to love

SITU is an attractive Bluetooth food scale that talks to your iPad. Created by former Apple employee Michael Grothaus — who came up with the idea while sitting in Apple’s Caffè Macs cafeteria — the device lets you see the exact nutritional content of any food you place on it, based on the food’s weight and broken down into calories, sugar, salt, protein, vitamins and minerals. The device itself is beautiful, too, with a simple but pleasing design that could have come straight out of Jony Ive’s workshop.Preorders will be available on SITU’s official site next month.

    Forget the Duet. They’ve been jerking their kickstarter supporters around for quite some time. It appears they have took the money and have been selling the Duets they made to distributors to sell at retail instead of sending them to their kickstarter backers.
