In the last 5 years, Kickstarter has revolutionized bringing new technology and art to the masses. No longer do creatives need to wait until a patron helps launch their career. With a quick video and a little imagination, they can launch the next innovation with the help of family, friends and the power of the internet.
New products and innovations are hitting Kickstarter everyday, but finding the best ones to support can take a bit of leg work. Pick wisely and you’ll be the first person you know with the newest product to overtake the masses.
We’ve picked our favorite fall Kickstarters that can help prevent FOMO later this year when you have to wait for the second edition release.
MiniS Magnetic Speakers
Imagine the sound experience of a movie theatre anywhere in the world. Surround sound used to be a piece of technology that would set you back a pretty penny. Thanks to advances in sound quality and the innovators behind the MiniS Magnetic speakers you can take surround sound on the road wherever you want to listen.
These pint size speakers come in a pair and are magnetized for easy installation on any metal surface without power or wires to drag you down. Fully funded, these speakers are hitting the shelves soon, and, after their kickstarter is over, will retail for over $100. You can snag them now by supporting the project with as little as $69.
