Buying knives off Kickstarter isn't as dumb as it seems I have a significant history with backing more things than I should on Kickstarter, oftentimes fueled by an overly-good promo video and/or 2AM wine-fueled browsing sessions. A few years ago, I made an impulse decision to back a knife project on [...]
I Spent $200 on a Weighted Blanket, and It's Changed My Entire F*cking Life My Friday nights are typically saved for drinking wine, catching up on my DVR, and surfing the internet. (Do people still say "surfing the internet?") Late last year, during one of these weekly rabbit-hole sessions, I stumbled upon a Kickstarter for a [...]

New Jersey is full of quick thinkers, so it makes sense that some local innovators are crushing it on Kickstarter . It’s a pretty cool feeling to help fellow NJ residents follow through on their vision, while getting to enjoy the result. ( My family’s played some intense travel games of ‘ Cow, Tiger, Santa Claus ‘ since its Kickstarter project last year. Glamour Dolls Makeup in Secaucus has gotten a wave of support for its collab with 90’s school supply icon Lisa Frank. There’s a makeup brush for pre-sale and the goal is to create six more products (including lip balm, highlight powder and a vegan leather makeup bag). The project ends on Kickstarter on April 2. It’s about 500-percent funded, so it’s got a bright future.
Wine glasses come in all shapes and sizes, some can even be attached to the bottle so you could literally chug delicious vino straight out of it, but there's always one problem that comes in the way, no matter the glass – your nose. Well, forget all this struggle because one genius invented has crafted a wine glass that perfectly matches your face contour. Piatt says he's already produced a small batch of Wine Glass Masks by using a simple mold and the results are encouraging. The crowdfunding campaign for the Wine Glass Mask started this month and the product is set to go fully into production in March.

We drink a fair amount of wine in our world. From my wife’s Friday evening wine club to our many social engagements, we have the opportunity to indulge in some very good vino. A majority of the wine we consume comes from what most would consider classic vineyards. That said, we have several friends and coworkers who only drink sulfite-free wines. They usually pay extra and do not have nearly the selection we do across the board. So, when Julie asked if we wanted to try the Üllo Wine Purifier,...
The people behind Wine.Woot, which Amazon purchased in 2010, are trying to save this wine-selling model. The old saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” However, for modern startup types, a more fitting phrase might be, “If at first you do succeed, and sell to Amazon for millions, but then Amazon mucks it up, why not try, try again and see if you can strike gold twice?” That appears to be the plan of the team behind Woot, an early success...
