Show Notes

James three Kickstarter campaigns were for Wiretap Headphone Microphone Splitter, the Luxi light meter for photography, and the Toaster, splitter that splits in output and keeps the mic active. James works very closely with Sparkfactor design, which has created the designs for lots of products you may have owned or used.

I mention Pen Type-A, Taylor Levy and Che-Wei Wang, who I interviewed in “Episode 12: Où est la plume de ma Kickstarter?
