In times past, the flow of new tech was controlled by a few big companies. Smaller competitors stood little chance, and consumers had to wait while new products were polished for retail. But in recent years, crowdfunding platforms have completely changed the landscape. Via Kickstarter and Indiegogo, consumers can back creators to the tune of millions, and receive the latest inventions in return.

Here are some of the most impressive examples of high-tech crowdfunding projects to drop this year.
