This is clever.
A new Kickstarter project aims to disrupt the pill case market. True, it’s not the sexiest industry in the world, but it’s ripe for some disruption, since there just so happens to be a huge market for it and there’s very little, if any, differentiation between current competitors.
So what is it?
Well, in a few words, it’s a pill case that’s shaped like a pen, fittingly named the CapsulePen. Essentially, the product is just a tube of plastic (a bit wider than a pen) that can hold up to seven large pills. The caps of the case are marked with a letter, to display which day these pills are meant to be taken on, and they’re also magnetized.
The brilliance of it is simple. We carry pens around with us already, whether it be in a dedicated pen slot in our bag or in our pockets or even in that sweet spot between your ear and your head (though I don’t think that example applies to the CapsulePen unless you’re really ready to make a statement).
It also extends past the core pill case demographic, who happen to be on a serious regiment of various medications on a daily basis. By that, I mean, popping half a bottle of Advil into the CapsulePen and throwing it in my bag would be much more space-efficient, comfortable, and user-friendly than bringing the whole bottle into work with me.
Joe Cote, the brains behind the operation, is asking for a grand total of $ 15,000 over the next 52 days. Pledges start at $ 15, so if you think this is worth your while, head on over to his Kickstarter page and show your support.

If you spent any time in high school thinking about ley lines and bio-implants, you were probably a Shadowrun player. The game, which petered out after a disastrous run as a PC/Xbox game in 2007, brought the high-tech of William Gibson to the magical realms of Mr. Gygax. It was, in short, pretty cool.
A Kickstarter project aims to bring back all that fun in video game form, adding lots of what you missed about Shadowrun back to the PC. This new version will be a RPG involving the Shadowrun world complete with various character types – elves, samurai, humans – and, although this is discouraged, deals with dragons. $ 15 gets you a copy of the game while $ 60 gets you a t-shirt and some in-game perks.
Pledge $ 10,000 and the real magic happens:

Digitizing your analog archives? Vinyl to CD / MP3 / iPod turntables might do well enough for your old 45s, but the folks at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory prefer to listen to their old beats by taking pictures of them. More specifically, restoration specialists are using a system called IRENE/3D to snap high resolution images of damaged media. The cracked discs — often made of wax on brass or composition board — are then repaired digitally, letting researchers play the digitized discs with an emulated stylus. So far, the team has recovered a handful of 125 year old recordings from a team in Alexander Graham Bell’s Volta laboratory. The all digital system gives researchers a hands-off way to recover audio from relic recordings without running the risk of damaging them in the process — and no, they probably won’t let you use it to listen to that beat up copy of the White Album you’ve had in your closet since eighth grade. Hit the source link to hear what they’ve recovered.
