Aura v1.0 - Concrete Wireless Charging

Crowdfunding campaign coming soon

The Aura Qi is a 10w wireless charging pad made from concrete, wood, and neoprene. It has the Micro-USB port and status LED embeded into the concrete base during the molding process. We have a working prototype proof of concept and are finalizing some sourcing of materials and finalizing our parts list. Our crowd sourcing campaign is expected to launch at the end of October 2018, offing you a significant discount on the expected final retail price.



Aura by Voidbox Industries is a Qi compatible wireless charging pad made from concrete, hardwood veneer, and neoprene. Concrete creates a unique finish with each pour. The laser etched hardwood top creates a scratch free surface for your phone to sit on and the neoprene base provides a slightly tacky cusion to keep itself from sliding all over your desk.

Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook page for updates.

Picture is of an early prototype, final product may look slightly different - For example: final product is expected to have a status LED in the front recess.

Ultra Low-Profile USB 2.0 Header For Motherboards

Ultra Low-Profile USB 2.0 Header

BUY ON AMAZONSOURCE

A USB header for PC motherboards designed to be as minimal as possible. It may interfere with components on some motherboards. Its intended use is for keeping small flash-drives, wireless controllers, or USB license keys inside a computer enclosure.

It can also be a powerful tool for computer techs who can keep two USB tools together such as a diagnostics OS on flash drive alongside a wireless keyboard/mouse receiver.

My personal use case is in a custom built super slim NAS enclosure that runs UnRAID. My OS is on a tiny flash drive and the second slot holds a 2.4ghz receiver for a thumb keyboard/trackpad thing. All current offerings I could find were too tall for my needs or were a wired assembly, this is much cleaner.

CSR8635 Bluetooth Audio Module Breakout

BUY ON TINDIESOURCE

A future product of ours is a Bluetooth headset and the CSR8635 modules are inexpensive and easily available online. Problem is that the pins are extremely small and a breakout board is required for prototyping. We have our extras that we had made in our Tindie shop, but feel free to make one yourself if you have the means. Designed in EasyEDA.
