Kickstart It: Stefan Loble’s Miracle Pants and His Vision for Online Apparel

Stefan Loble wants to liberate your life by changing your pants. It’s an idea that’s wild enough to work. Loble recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to springboard his apparel company into business. He has one flagship product and a promise: to eliminate the time we need to spend caring for our pants, so we can go follow our dreams.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Stefan Loble about his Kickstarter project, and his goals to start an apparel company.


Kickstart It: Touch the Temp with the Cryoscope Thermal Display

Robb Godshaw believes conventional temperature measurements like Celsius and Fahrenheit are arbitrary and difficult to translate. Using the assistance of crowd-funding platform Kickstarter, Godshaw hopes to upend convention with his touch based weather forecaster, the Cryoscope. Using a thermoelectric Peltier heating and cooling element, the Cryoscope can recreate any current or future temperature conditions from around the globe. Instead of mentally calculating what 67 degree weather might feel like, the Cryoscope allows you to feel it with the palm of your hand.

I recently had the chance to talk with Robb Godshaw about his Kickstarter project, the Cryoscope, and his goal to raise $80,000.
