The Tsunami is a powerful and flexible signal generator, analyzer, and experimenter’s kit built on the Arduino platform. by Nick Johnson @ kickstarter.com:
The Tsunami is a powerful and flexible signal generator built on the Arduino platform. It’s the best way to get started experimenting with analog signals, and a great tool for a huge variety of tasks, too.
We’ve taken the versatile processor behind the Arduino Leonardo, and combined it with a Direct Digital Synthesis chip, which makes generating analog signals incredibly straightforward. Then, we’ve added on flexible input and output circuitry, and an easy to use software library, to make working with analog signals as easy as blinking an LED.

PiJuice is the ultimate module for all portable Raspberry Pi projects. Includes many fun maker projects and a solar power version too!
As one of the smallest systems around there’s so many amazing things you could do with the Raspberry Pi if it was self-powered and portable. With PiJuice we want to provide not only the best portable hardware/software solution, but also a set of inspiring and affordable guided projects for fun, learning, and breaking out the Pi into the real world.
For the past year we’ve toiled and sweated over the technical minutiae of PiJuice so you don’t have to.
- Onboard 1400 mAh “off the shelf” Lipo battery (with support for larger Lipo Battery up to 5000 mAH+) to last up to 24 hrs + in constant use!
- Full UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) solution.
- Integrated RTC (Real Time Clock)
- On board intelligent on/off switch
- Low power deep-sleep state with wake on interrupt/calendar event
- Programmable multi-colored RGB led
- Full power management API available to Raspberry Pi OS with auto shutdown capability when running low on batteries
- Raspberry Pi HAT compatible layout, with on board EEPROM for easy plug and play operation
- Low profile design, to fit inside lots of existing Raspberry Pi cases!

Raspberry Pi gadget lights up when International Space Station is nearby with Live HD video from the ISS now with Wearable LEDs
The original version of the ISS-Above was funded through a successful Kickstarter nearly 1 year ago. Since then more than 800 ISS-Above’s have been installed worldwide.
At the heart of the ISS-Above is the lovable and successful single board computer called a Raspberry Pi. Over 5 million of these little computers have been sold worldwide.
The ISS-Above functionality has been drastically improved since the first Kickstarter with some truly remarkable new features – including the display of live HD video views of the earth directly from cameras on the International Space Station.

Control your Bluetooth enabled devices with this open-source button that is only slightly larger than a micro SD card.
Tog can remotely control Bluetooth enabled devices such as smart phones, laptops, lights, locks and much more. When you press Tog it will wake up and communicate with your phone to execute pre-assigned actions. Tog ships with the ability to activate Siri/Google or take a picture on your smart phone with no apps required. Additionally, you may configure it to control or mute your music. The Tog design is open source so it can be modified to do whatever fits you.

Headless Ghost is a display emulator (dummy plug) that fits discreetly in to a HDMI socket.
It fixes a problem you probably didn’t even know you had – unlocking the full potential of your graphics card hardware.
By simulating the presence of an attached display, Headless Ghost allows you to use all of the power and available resolutions locked away inside your graphics hardware, which might otherwise be disabled when there is no screen available.

The ultimate combination of an Arduino-compatible board and your day-to-day Gadget in one handheld Device.
Phoenard is an All-in-one Arduino-compatible prototyping Gadget powered by an 8-bit AVR ATMEGA2560, identical to the one you find in Arduino Mega. It is essentially a pocket-sized prototyping platform which you can use as the ‘brain’ in your projects, similar to using an Arduino. BUT, it has a lot more features built into a single case developed in such a way that you can use it as your day-to-day Gadget.

Focus a beam of sound at objects or into your head!
The Soundlazer directional audio project is the continuation of my first and very successful project here on Kickstarter. I developed the Soundlazer “Snap” during my quest to lower the cost of this amazing technology and give backers the opportunity to explore new possibilities in directional audio.
Parametric speakers like the Soundlazer are directional speaker systems. They use ultrasonic carrier waves to transmit audio to listeners in a focused beam of sound that acts like light from a laser. Generally speaking, only the person standing in front of a parametric speaker can hear the audio being transmitted. People to the sides of the directional audio source hear little or no sound.
