Say Hello to Magnic Light iC – The next-gen Bicycle Dynamo

Magnic Light iC is a revolutionary new micro-controlled, contactless dynamo-powered bike light system that works without any additional components  attached to the wheels.

Designed by Dirk Strothmann, Magnic Light iC is powered by magnets and weighs around 60 grams. It can generate never-ending bright light without the use of any batteries, wheel-contact, cables or resistance!

What is most satisfying is how Strothmann brought together these principles of natural physics into the most efficient, usable product. This should certainly serve as another example to some bigger companies.  Magnic Light iC is currently on Kickstarter and looking for funding.

Have you seen The Repopulation?

Hailed as one of the most anticipated sci-fi MMORPG of 2014, The Repopulation is a sandbox MMORPG with features seen in games like Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online. The game won the 2013 PAX Prime Rising Star Award from MMORPG.com

With 24 days left to go, the game is looking for backers on Kickstarter. With 530 backers already, they’ve managed to reach $40,491 out of $50,000 so far. The game is also up on Steam Greenlight and needs voting.

Star Citizen hits a colossal $35 million in Crowd Funding

Star Citizen is now ranked at number 1 in the list of the highest crowd funded projects till date, $20 million ahead of the Ubuntu phone, the most funded until now.

Around 330,000 people have backed this project at an average of $100 – much more than a regular Triple-A title!

Since the audience reached one of their stretch goals, they’ve now unlocked the final fan-voted ship design – The Drake Herald. I tried hard to find images of this darned ship on the internet, I failed miserably.

Anyway, what are they actually doing with all this money? Most people who’ve backed their Kickstarter now argue that they just wanted the game with those basic ships that was part of the commercial. $6 million in funding is massive on Kickstarter.
