On today’s Smart Homes Now! Blog, we saw some great kickstarter projects at Indiegogo and

In spite of the rainy season here, we’re pretty sure that you’d still enjoy an iced drink. And if it’s summer in your part of the world, ice on any drink just makes it more awesome.

Thing is, you can’t crank out ice cubes fast enough. Unless you have your own ice making machine.   If you’re nuts about ice, then get the Opal  Nugget Ice Maker.

It’s not that big and it’ll fit most kitchen top counters.


According to the makers, the Opal can hold up to 3lbs of nugget ice. Here’s what’s even better: it can churn out 1 lb of ice per hour.

That’s pretty good. You don’t have to wait hours just to get your refrigerator to crank out the ice.

And the Opal Nugget Ice Maker doesn’t just create your usual ice cubes.  It comes up with nugget ice which has a soft chewable texture. They say it’s  pretty easy on the teeth.

Check out the video below:

Since it’s pretty small, you can actually bring it on camping trips and excursions.  It doesn’t need its own water line. All you need to have is a 120V power source and clean water.

Let’s move onto to the next awesome kickstarter project.

Since we’re on the 8th month of the year, I’m pretty sure that you’ve started hearing Christmas songs.

I ‘cw heard it and I hate it. But I can’t deny it so what better way to prepare for it than checking out Christmas decors this early.

And then  I saw the HypnoLights.  These are full color animated string lights.  It’s a 12 feet strand of 50 LED lights that play artistic lighting sequences.

The HypnoLight has 30 visualizations each randomized to create never repeating sequence. If you set it in random, it’ll never repeat a lighting sequence. If you’re fond of watching Christmas lights, this one won’t be boring to watch.

And it looks pretty awesome when you see it in action. Check out the video below.

Their on/off, blinking action is just too smooth it’s almost unnatural.

There’s some incredible math and science involved in the creation of the HypnoLights. If you back this project, just remember that it’s not just Christmast ligts.  There’s software in the creation of the randomized lights: 20,000 lines of C code and a few hundred of assembly. Awesome right?
