Athletes have long been tracking and using the ratio of carbon dioxide to oxygen to modify their diets and achieve optimal performance, however, its been a costly process thats required expensive tools and use of a medical center. The Lumen Metabolism Tracker, which is now funding on Indiegogo, aims to bring this cutting edge tech into consumers' hands for real-time and on the go tracking. Using your breath as the measure, the device can tell you whether you are currently burning carbs or fat and ways to adjust your diet accordingly. This will make sure that you are always performing optimally and have enough energy for later workouts and expenditures. It can also give you insights on how the food you eat affects your performance as well as the right mixture of macro and micro nutrients. The device needs to be charged only once every few weeks and comes with a soft travel case so you can bring it with you everywhere.

Titan Underwater Diving Drone
Drones are all the rage these days and finally were starting to see some that can navigate the waters like their aerial counterparts. Able to dive down to depths of 500 feet, the Titan is a perfect tool for the photographer that lives to capture underwater treasures. Six thrusters propel the drone and proprietary software allows you to get steady and smooth footage and sharp imaging even with unpredictable ocean conditions. There is a 4k sensor and a 160 degree wide angle lens that capture 8-megapixel stills and 1080p live streamed footage. You control the drone as you would a typical video game controller and the 3000-lumen LED lights allow you light up darker environments. Also includes a hardshell carrying case and a battery with up to four hours of run time. This Kickstarter is fully funded so you can preorder now.
Hexa 6-Legged Programmable Robot
Robots are cool and the next big platform. Robotics company Vincross is looking to bring the world of hardware and software programmable robots into your home with Haxa, a 6-legged robot that is highly agile and adaptable. The robot comes with a 720P camera complete with night vision, a 3-axis accelerometer and several sensors including ones to measure distance and proximity to objects. Hexa also includes a full software stack built on the Linux Kernel called MIND, that allows you to create movements and applications that can bring your robotics to life. It connects via an integrated wi-fi adapter and a 4-hour battery life. Hexa is perfect for the first time enthusiasts that don't need to know underlying hardware and complex mechanics to learn and create interesting robotics functionality.
