Welcome to the forty-eighth instalment of our weekly series: The Kings of Kickstarter. From levitating timepieces to portable water generators, our last Kings brought some serious design to the Roundtable. As per usual, NUBI has procured 5 Kings (and of course one jester) and presented them below. Ranked in descending order, only one can claim the title of Supreme Overlord.
#5. Waterlife – Marko T Wramén & Anna W Thorbjörnsson
“Our baby was floating in its own water sphere, the only world it knew by then was an underwater world.“
Given that we reside in an aquatic world for the first few months of our lives, photographers Marko & Anna decided to pay homage to both the beauty of new life and the life-giving properties of water in the same breath.
After travelling to High Springs, Northern Florida, USA they created these phenomenal images in the clear flowing water, all naturally lit and all taken with breath-hold diving, these pictures are truly striking – especially given today is #WorldPhotoDay.
#4. Double Tap Audio – Randy May
“We used modified .40 Cal once fire brass along with mat black anodised aluminium housing for the earphone shells.”
Very few people imagined they’d end up with a .40 cal round in their ear. Double Tap Audio have created the R1 headphones that do just that, utilising shell casings to hold audio tech.
With the hardy metal apparently serving the purpose of noise cancellation and sound leakage in one swift move, the anti tangle cord and the 3.5mm jack to match frankly make these some fucking badass headphones. Bullets are finally doing something useful.
