I’ve been working as an online freelancer for about 5 years now. Being a huge supporter of startup campaigns and innovations, I want to share some of my favorite kickstarter projects to my fellow freelancers. In fact, even those who are not in the freelancing business can find these tech projects truly useful.
Many freelancers are always on the go. Some simply take advantage of the freedom and just travel while working at the same time and some are required by their projects to go to different places. In both of these cases, freelancers need a reliable source of backup power for gadgets.
Omnicharge is a powerful and smart yet compact powerbank that can charge almost any device. It can quickly and smartly charge laptops, GoPro’s, tablets, cell phones, DSLR cameras, drones, and more. One of the things that I really like about it is that you can use your laptop charger directly. It also has an optional feature of wireless charging.

One of the risks of being an online freelancer is developing discomfort and even pain in the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. I have this and many of the freelancers I know have this. It is caused by poor posture and repetitive hand and finger movements and can progress to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Wristocat is a dynamic wrist support that adapts to your hand and wrist movements. It uses magnetic levitation to suspend your hand/s, enable friction-free gesturing, and absorb repetitive stress. Click here to know more about this incredible product.
When it comes to posture, our wrists and hands aren’t the only ones that suffer from poor and improper positioning. We should consider our entire body especially since we sit for prolonged periods of time. We are often crouched towards the laptop or tablet with our neck, shoulders, and back strained.
The X-stand creates a more comfortable working environment for freelancers with its ergonomic, highly adjustable laptop stand. You can configure it for sitting, standing, and typing to ensure the perfect angle for any position. The stand is also very light, portable and sturdy weighing less than 1 lb. yet can carry up to 150 lbs. Click here for more information.
For freelancers on the go, a reliable backpack is also a must-have. An ordinary backpack just won’t cut it. We need protection for our gadgets as well our other things. If a necessity can be integrated into the backpack, all the better.
The iBackPack is a high tech innovation for backpacks. It’s got TSA-friendly, weather proof, high quality materials with integrated RFID blocking for securing your credit card info. It also has a built-in 20,000 mAh battery that can charge your gadgets; it has GPS, WiFi, waterproof USB ports, car charger, Bluetooth audio system, anti-theft protection system, and a mobile app that’s connected to your bag. It also has a limited lifetime warranty.
