With so much talent in the channel, it can be difficult to sift out the freshest gear and potential tech giants of tomorrow.
Each month PCR rounds up the latest crowdfunded projects from Kickstarter and Indiegogo that have caught our eye. This month’s we’ve got powerstations, earbuds, home purifiers and portable projectors…
PWR 27 travelling powerstation
SOS Powerbank’s PWR 27 travelling powerstation promises to be an industry first for A/C powerbanks: dust and waterproof (IP67), dropproof (1000+ft), and crushproof (2 tons). It’s also the first A/C powerbank to feature integrated solar battery life extension and emergency trickle recharge.
With the ability to charge five devices at once, and featuring a massive 27,000 mAh (99wH) battery, the PWR 27 is the largest carry on battery approved by the TSA and all other foreign air regulations (100 wH limit).
“Whether you’re abroad for international business, on a shoot in the Tetons, relaxing on the beaches of Bali, or hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro – this battery was built to go wherever you roam,” boasts the makers.

Wynd Halo and Home Purifier
Wynd Technologies is crowdfunding for its new Wynd Halo and the Wynd Home Purifier, which lets users monitor and “physically perfect” their environment.
Wynd Halo has 10 sensors to monitor allergens, smoke, germs, pollution, and more. It features a new innovation called Air ID which classifies the actual pollutants in the air so that you can take the right course of action. Wynd Halo pairs seamlessly with the Wynd Home Purifier to remove any contaminants from your environment quickly and automatically.
According to Wynd, we take 20,000 breaths every day, but what’s in the air we’re breathing? Halo can tell you and make it better. It can live anywhere and houses an internal rechargeable battery, and so is portable. Halo monitors the air and gives you a summary of your environment at a glance. It has more sensors than any other environmental monitor and can determine the actual composition of your air – from pollen, to pet dander, to smog – so that you can take the right course of action to improve your environment.

Nanobuds extreme earbuds
Nanobuds claim to be the world’s most extreme earbuds. “Just take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices. Put them in your ears and they connect instantly. Speak into them and your voice sounds clear,” promises makers Pierre Audio.
After a simple one-tap setup, your Nanobuds are automatically on and always connected. They can sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out.
All earbuds are driven by the custom-designed Pierre Z9 chip. It produces extremely efficient wireless for a better connection and improved sound. And the Z9 chip means you can listen for 12 hours on a single charge. “It’s performance that’s unheard of in a device this small,” claims the company.
What’s more, a voice accelerometer recognises when you’re speaking and works with a pair of beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
