Pirate Pancake Griddle

If you like pancakes and pirates, you may like this campaign a lot. Joe Sandor developed a pancake griddle with a pirate skull design. They were elaborated through 3D modeling and then taken to a prototype made of iron. From which came out this very curious and funny-looking griddle.

Sprayable Energy

Do you need energy in the morning but want to avoid energy drinks? Don’t worry, Sprayable Energy has the solution for you. It consists of an atomizer whose content is made with caffeine. Since it’s a substance that’s hardly soluble in water, it was possible to make it five times more soluble by combining caffeine with another substance. Tyrosine, or rather, a derivative of this amino acid.

To apply it, it should be sprayed 2 to 4 times on the skin depending on how much energy you need. It’s a colorless and odorless substance, it’s doesn’t stain or and can’t be felt on the skin. Its creators note that caffeine can enter our bodies naturally through the skin. Passing through the cell membranes. This campaign raised a total of $169,891, higher than its goal of only $15,000.
