These projects look really solid - they are drop-in replacements for Redis and should offer the most closely matched performance without the need to keep everything in RAM:
Has anyone tried?
Wassup, not sure on the legislation of listing things here, but I received my Embrace+ from a Kickstarter campaign yesterday, bought it for my other half who has an HTC One X, turns out it requires version 4.3 of Android or higher, it's a really nice bit of kit. There's a video of it here.
It's on eBay if anyone in the UK wants it. If you're a reputable member on here, I may consider sending abroad, but you're paying the postage.
I backed it in April of last year. It took 16 months for them to make it, despite having design mockups and prototypes of everything before receiving a quarter of a million to make it.
It's good for those that don't want to look like Michael Knight, but want notifications, I bought it for my other half, she works in a place where her phone has to stay in her bag out the back. So wearing this would alert her to texts from certain people via the changing colours/styles. However her HTC One X (a relatively new phone compared to the 2.3 minimum they stated when I backed) is not compatible due to needing android 4.3.
Well if you don't find any takers in the UK, if you want to donate that to the next plugin competition we could pay for the shipping It's about time we got a new competition going, it's been a while
Julian's on vacation next week so best to do it next Friday so that he has 0 chances of winning.
