Here are our 3 of our favorite new electronics & gadgets for 2014 that we’d love to see on DealDash:
- The PowerAll PBJS12000R Rosso is not only a portable power bank with USB outlets to charge all of your gear on the go, it’s also a car battery jump starter and for just $99 it leaves us wondering just how legit it is. Well, judging by the reviews people do seem to like it. 4.5 star rating with 80 reviews on Amazon.com, it works as a 12,000 mAh battery charger for a phone or tablet, LED flash light, strobe light and SOS signal that lasts 120 hours, and then the jump starter for you car. Build in protection features – over feature protection, short circuit protection, overload protection. It looks super compact and lightweight too. According to the product details, you can use it to jump start you car up to 20x if fully charged! Wow! Plus it comes with jumper cables. Not bad for $99.90.
2. The Micro is a $200-300 3D printer that will soon be accessible to consumers and is now raising money on Kickstarter to make the most affordable 3D printer yet.
“The dream here is definitely that you take something and install it as fast as the fastest plug-and-play device that you’ve ever seen and you’re focused on the end result,” Michael Armani, M3D’s CEO tells us. “You take the design, put it in the printer, it prints as quickly as possible. The focus here isn’t on the 3D printing process … [it’s] on ‘yeah, I want to make a mold for chocolates.’ It went to the fun part so you can enjoy it as much as possible.”
The early-adopter, funding specials include the 3D printer for as little as $199 have already sold out, but you can now get the printer for just $299 via Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/m3d/the-micro-the-first-truly-consumer-3d-printer. Hopefully their dream will become a reality and this will be a widely accessible 3D printer and also offered on DealDash in the near future! Perhaps DealDash will offer this when it’s ready for market and you will win and soon be able to make your own chocolate molds, teacups or whatever your imagination holds.
3. The one-wheel self balancing electric skateboard
“Most people can learn to ride Onewheel in a couple minutes even if they’re not used to boardsports. That’s because controlling a Onewheel is so intuitive. Powerful sensors and sophisticated algorithms are constantly helping you balance and control your ride with just the forward or backward lean of your body. People with experience with other boardsports are often ready to ride aggressively within their first few minutes on Onewheel.”
Not just a skateboard, the creators of Onewheel made it to be a viable option for commuters (if you live close to you workplace.)
