According to the views of experts, backpacks play essential part in our life. Whether you’re walking between classes at college, trekking across mountains, or commuting to work, your backpack is your home away from home, your portable office, your traveling desk. Plus, it shows people your personality, right on your shoulders.
For the last 2 years authors of ”Just Porter” startup have traveled to the furthest corners of the globe with one aim: to reinvent what a backpack could be.
They designed their bags intuitively, so you have fast access to everything. The innovative materials give you great aesthetics and amazing functionality, and they’ve made it easy for you to make the world better.

Michron: Timelapse for Everyone

Michron is a device that plugs into your camera and allows you to take timelapses. This kind of device is called an intervalometer. Michron is special because it has no buttons or screens; instead the user interface is the Michron App on your smart phone (Android or iPhone).
Once you’ve created your settings in the app, upload them by plugging your phone into Michron with the programming cable. After you have uploaded your settings, you can disconnect your phone. Michron will perform completely on its own. Once Michron is plugged into the trigger port, it will tell your camera to take photos according to your settings. And don’t worry, Michron’s battery has a life of over 2500 hours, meaning you will probably never have to replace it (and if you do, it’s easy to replace).

AngelHack – the largest organizer of hackathons on the planet

In late 2011, frustrated with years of failed efforts integrated technology into the startups, Gregory Gopman (nowadays, AngelHack CEO) moved to Silicon Valley on a mission to find great developers. And when he got here, he learned of the magical places called hackathons where technical members of the community would come together to learn new things, meet new people, and build new ideas.
A newcomer on the scene, he wanted to meet everyone he could and at the same time, make himself known as a friend of the developer community. He started the AngelHack hackathon series at that time and brought in Angel Investors to judge. As time went on, Gregory’s curiosity for the Silicon Valley startup community turned into a curiosity for the global startup community, and how we could bring them all together over hackathons. In 2013, the HACKcelerator was born to help top hackstars connect with mentors and win experiences in Silicon Valley. They launched the AppHACK mobile hackathon series in their continued effort to build stronger communities worldwide. They’ve also begun offering their services to clients throughout the startup industry to help with developer marketing and startup relations… That was the beginning of AngelHack’s journey.

Kubo: an electric scooter to carry all your stuff

You may remember Lit Motors from C-1 vehicles, but authors have got another vehicle that they’re introducing you to. It is their new electric scooter KUBO.
Being big fans of two-wheeled vehicles, they found existing motor scooters lacking – they make carrying anything a hassle, and it was hard to find a good quality electric scooter anywhere. So as a side project during their free time, the guys decided to make their own.
Among the main parameters of KUBO there are: 45 mph top speed, up to 50 miles per charge, 300 lbs capacity, cargo + rider, 22″ square cargo space with tie-down hooks, loops, and rails for a wide variety of ways to secure your stuff, on-board charger—charge in a few hours from any wall outlet, adjustable-height seat (for riders from 5’0″ to 6’5″), small lockable stow compartment, perfect for extra bungee cords, phone, etc. And many others.
Kubo is the bee’s knees, it’s a fun way to get around the city, regardless of the terrain or how much you’re carrying with you. Though it looks unique, it’s just as easy as riding a regular scooter. It is the new form of urban transportation.
