If there is a really impressive game you should fund on Kickstarter this week then it has to be this one. Remember the game of cards as we know it?Well, it just got better. Three entrepreneurs are revolutionizing the cards game and they have called it Exploding Kittens because that’s what it is all about. When playing the game, if the next card you place on the table is an exploding kitten, you will be out of the game unless you have the card that can neutralize that effect on your batch on cards. The more you play the tenser it gets, the more cards you put away, the easier it becomes that you could land an exploding kitten and leave the game. The project has been funded by more than 5000 percent which should tell you how much impressive it is. There are 16 more days to go so you can get yourself the batch as well. And don’t underestimate the internet’s love for cats. This is the most backed Kickstarter project ever.

Prynt is an interesting idea and here is how it goes. Want to take a picture? Just plug in your smartphone into Prynt, a smartphone case, then take the picture and it will be printed instantly. We’ve seen cameras that print photos instantly before, but Prynt is a smartphone case and a printer at the same time. Inspired by the fact that most people take a lot of photos and never look at them, this small group of entrepreneurs thought that an instant printer would do the trick and boy don’t people on Kickstarter love the idea!
The case holds ten sheets of paper that are ready to be printed on. In fact, you can print already taken photos that are within your gallery. You just plug in the case, choose a photo, snap and the print is finished in seconds. The case is compatible with iOS and Android phones including all the flagships in this regard. The Prynt app on your phone will also take videos as you shoot the photos and you can hover your phone over the printed photo, the photo is then scanned to show you the video as a movie in augmented reality.
