Awesome never-seen-before gadgets from Kickstarter and Indiegogo
There's a reason why we love crowdfunding campaigns so much. They're always full of smart, innovative designs. It's easy to get lost in everything Kickstarter and Indigogo have to offer. And do you really have all of the time and money required to undertake this task? Probably not. So we've narrowed it down for you and are sharing some of the campaigns we love from this year so far.
Every time we think we’ve seen it all, someone surprises us. And the level of talent and innovation in Kickstarter and Indiegogo gadgets is pretty mindblowing. Some of the ideas are so complex, we’re left marveling at the brains behind them. And some of the ideas are so simple with such great functionality that we’ve wondered why no one else has thought of it.
There are thousands of crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. So where do you even begin when you want to start perusing? Sure, you can browse by category, but that still leaves you with information overload. And an empty wallet. Then again, too much time on Kickstarter and Indiegogo is always going to leave you with an empty wallet, to be fair. We’ve handled some of the legwork for you, and we’ve chosen some of the ones we love. From health to fun to necessities, it’s all here.

Glamos Virtual Touchscreen Device
Imagine being able to turn any screen into a touchscreen. You can do just that with the Glamos Virtual Touchscreen Device.

It features a 180° field of view and has a three-foot radius. One of the best features of this device is that you don’t need a special app or software to use it. All you have to do is place it, plug it in, and start. We love a good crowdfunding campaign that makes our lives easier.
