Introducing Real Simple + Kickstarter

May 30, 2012 | By | Comments (3)

Here at Real Simple we’re fans of just about anything that makes your life easier, especially the problem-solving products that we share every Friday in our Daily Finds newsletter. So we’re especially pleased to announce that we’ve launched a curated page on Kickstarter. (If you’re not familiar, Kickstarter is a platform that allows people to share their ideas and ask for people to help fund the beginning stages of making that idea a reality, learn more here.)

Real Simple on Kickstarter

As part of our curated page, Real Simple’s editors will be scouring the current projects to find ones that are designed to simplify your life. Since many, though not all, of them are products, we’ll also be sharing them here, and letting you know that you can help make that project a reality. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing some of the projects again when they are available for purchase in our Daily Finds.

Here’s one of the new projects that we’re really excited about:

Twig iPhone Charger on Kickstarter

Inspired by bendable action figures (like Gumby), this Twig iPhone/iPod charger is tiny and won’t get tangled up in your laptop bag or purse. Plus, it can act as a tripod, charging dock, and earbud wrangler. Check out the project page to watch the video about Twig and to donate.
