Gustin Denim is high quality stuff, but at a low price. This is thanks to their new method of buying jeans–crowdsourcing. By allowing you, the consumer, to fund which styles you want, they make sure the unpopular styles go unfunded and they don’t spend time making something nobody will want. The jeans will be handmade in San Francisco, and will feature the same features you'd expect from a luxury pair, including leather patches, tucked beltloops, selvage side seams and flies, chainstitched waistbands, and custom shaped and finished hardware. They have already raised $251,043 on Kickstarter in the past month, amazing! Checkout our exclusive interview with co-founder Stephen Powell from Gustin after the jump. [See & Read More]

While it may recall certain aesthetics of the big three gaming platforms, the GameStick is in a class all its own. The Android-based GameStick is a new console that does away with the bulk of the traditional platforms, instead centralizing all controls and connectivity into one sleek controller. The independently developed platform launched on KickStarter today, hoping to gain traction in the arguably monopolized playing field that is modern video gaming. While small, the GameStick is not without its technological merits, boasting 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and Bluetooth connectivity. The console draws its power over HDMI, so whenever the GameStick need be transported, it can be easily unplugged and taken on the road. [Watch More]

Ever try holding your iPad funny at one end so you could aim the sound back at you? Us too. That's why they're making the Ora iPad Sound System ($150). Designed by a team that has created products for the likes of TDK, Intel, Vizio, and Nike, the aluminum case/stand packs eight front-spacing speakers (tuned by the former engineer lead of Bose) into the space surrounding the screen, giving you a far more immersive sound experience than you're used to from your tablet. Of course, it's louder, too, but you might not even notice when you're getting blown away by audio from apps you used to consider "tinny". We backed the Kickstarter project.

Kickstarter is never short on inventive ideas from an assortment of different creative realms – as evidenced by the Ostrich Pillow from design outfit Kawamura-Ganjavian. Designed as a micro environment in which a user can take a cozy and comfortable power nap at ease, the dome-like structure with soft interior offers the ability to shelter and isolate your head and hands for a short break without needing to leave your desk, chair, bench or wherever you may be.

It will mount onto regular tripods and communicate with your iPhone via an easy app. Its projected retail price is $60 with a current scheduled shipping date is January 2013, if all goes well. Make your paparazzi dreams come true by pledging or pre-ordering yours now via Kickstarter. [Watch More]

It's no secret that we have a soft spot for awesome bottle openers, and its obvious that the creators of the JackHawk 9000 Bottle Opener Sunglasses ($TBA) do too. Unlike all the other sunglasses you’ve spent a fortune on, these are constructed from high-grade titanium, so they wont break or bend. The coolest part, obviously, is that these bad boys will pop a top on a cold brew, meaning you’re literally wearing your bottle opener wherever you go. With that kind of stylish, bottle-opening power, it is quite possible that women will want you and men will want to be you, thus changing your life forever. At the very least, they don’t look bad. Head on over to Kickstarter and pledge now so we can make this bad-ass invention a reality. Enjoy.
