Worried that prying eyes are reading your sexts on the subway? You can make your iPhone’s display unreadable to everyone but you with a Peek Screen 2.0 protector.

It’s just one of the awesome projects in this week’s Crowdfund Roundup. We’ve also got a solar-powered lantern doubles as a phone charger, the world’s first non-contact sleep monitor for babies, and more!

Peek Screen 2.0

Smartphone screen guards can offer more than just a little extra protection. The Peek Screen 2.0 also ensures your data doesn’t get seen by prying eyes. It covers the entire front panel of your iPhone and makes the display unreadable when viewed at an angle.

It’s also easy to apply, scratch-resistant, and just $15 when you order it through Kickstarter.

LuminAID Solar Lantern

Don’t get caught outdoors without battery life! Get the LuminAID solar lantern and charge all your gadgets on the go. It has a built-in 2,000mAh battery and absorbs more energy from the sun, plus it doubles as a light that’s good for just about anything.

LuminAID is also waterproof, boasts 5 brightness settings, and can be charged at home using a standard micro-USB cable. Secure yours through Kickstarter with a pledge of $35.


Raybaby is the world’s first and only non-contact sleep monitor. It can monitor your baby’s breathing and sleep cycles with 98 percent accuracy without being making any contact. It also doubles as a camera, provides emergency alerts, and creates a health journal for doctors.

Raybaby can even notify you when your baby has a fever, and it’s is backed by Johnson & Johnson. You can order yours from Kickstarter for $129 at early bird pricing.


Want to snap even greater photos with your iPhone? Check out the Moments case we covered earlier on Cult of Mac, which lets you combine your iSight camera with DSLR-style lenses. It also adds a physical shutter button to make shooting a little easier, and there’s also a version with a built in battery pack.

Prices start at just $20, and you can order yours through Kickstarter now!
