Navigating the world of crowdfunding can be overwhelming, to put it lightly. Which projects are worth backing? Where's the filter to weed out the hundreds of useless smart devices?

Go ahead, free your disposable income:
The XGIMI MoGo Pro on Indiegogo is a great souped-up projector in a surprisingly compact package. Not only does it come in 1080p video quality, voice assistance, built-in sound system, and WiFi capabilities with tons of features like YouTube and Hulu, it can also be used completely wirelessly (backyard movie screenings anyone?)!
Think of this suitcase as a mobile closet: it comes with multiple packing cubes and features a pull-up mechanism that lets you access everything you need just like you would in your dresser at home.
More than just another tabletop 3D printer, IVI's modular print head design allows you to attach laser engraving and CNC carving modules, so you can alternate between the three tools seamlessly.
This foldable, take-anywhere bag quickly transforms from the size of a small battery to a full-size backpack, and it's made out of a water and dust-repelling fabric.
If you're tired of constantly switching between different earphones, AirLoop's modular design lets you attach the magnetic earbuds to a neckband, a thinner "sportband," or wear them alone when you want to go wireless.
