1. Ring – A ring that helps you “Shortcut Everything”.
Ring is much more than just a sleek piece of jewelry. This wearable bluetooth device acts like a magic wand, allowing you to control almost anything with a couple movements of a finger. At the moment, the device has support for sending texts, controlling appliances and apps, and simple bill pay – though more is on the way through an open developer platform. Project runs through April 4th.

2. Revolights Arc – A smarter bike taillight.

3. Halo Belt 2.0 – Bright, rechargeable safety belt for cyclists and runners.
We’re keeping with the biking theme here on number three. If you’re an avid runner or cyclist, you’ll know that proper lighting at night is incredibly important for safety. The Halo Belt 2.0 takes the normal reflective band to the next level, by integrating rechargeable fiber optics for an enhanced glow. It’s also fairly inexpensive at $37 including US shipping. Project runs through April 27th.
