[Review] Knops Earplugs Allow Four Settings Of Volume Control

Last year we came across an interesting, Amsterdam- based (successful) IndieGogo campaign, which claimed development of earplugs allowing increased control over the peripheral volumes of life. Of course in our world hearing health is paramount and something all too frequently looked at within a bipolar setting…either you wear something or you don’t.

Crowdfunding Started To Stop Burning Man Attendees Returning To Bay Area

With less than 3 weeks left until the annual bohemian pilgrimage to the Nevada desert that is Burning Man, one San Francsico man has proposed crowdfunding a 300 mile wall around the technology capital with the aim of keeping the returning Bay Area privileged from returning. By creating Megagogo, an obvious play on Indiegogo, the comedic creative agency Culitivated Wit wants to create a, “funding platform for large-scale infrastructure”. The agency’s co-founder, Brian Janosch explains that the week between August 30 – September 7 is the only time that San Franciscoans don’t have to hear about Burning Man. With that in mind, Janosch explains that, “It was an obvious conclusion…to try ... Read more
