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? To make the process less frustrating, we scour the various online crowdfunding platforms to put together a weekly roundup of our favorite campaigns for your viewing (and spending!) pleasure. Go ahead, free your disposable income:
You won't need to worry about carrying around a bulky, potentially easy-to-lose charging case for your wireless earbuds with Wearbuds. They come with a sleek fitness wristband where you can both store and charge them, so they'll literally always be at your fingertips, ready to go.
The Spinn camera carrying system shifts your camera's center of gravity from its top to the base, which prevents it from bouncing around on your body when you're walking and will keep the straps from getting in the way when you're ready to take a snap. It also doubles as a tripod mount.
Inside an unassuming exterior, this garbage can packs a lot of features that will keep you from ever having to smell or touch trash again: the lid is powered by a motion sensor, it's self-cleaning, can seal your garbage bags, and comes with an overfill detector.
Made using only a lathe, this sphere inside a cube was carved from inside, not placed where it is! Like the campaign says, "with just a simple twist in how we utilize our resources, we can create many great things and that's what the O Cube keeps on reminding us."
A sleek, highly portable alternative to bulky (and let's face it, hideous) tire inflators.
