Mindhelix raises over $100,000 via Kickstarter campaign Kochi-based startup Mindhelix, which develops the home security device Rico, has raised over $100,000 from nearly 750 backers on the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter. The funding campaign, which started with the goal of $100,000, reached it with three days to spare and will end on the 30th of October. Rico is a small ‘toy-like’ looking device, which works on its own or with a spare smartphone to detect changes inside a user's home like humidity, temperature, noise level, presence of smoke, movement, cooking gas or carbon monoxide, and alert the user. It also allows users to view a live stream of the rooms and control home appliances remotely. Currently the product is estimated to ship to Kickstarter backers in November 2015.
