7 Cool Crowdfunding Projects That Might Make Your Life Easier

7 Cool Crowdfunding Projects That Might Make Your Life Easier

Do you have an amazing idea for a product, service or invention? Well, if you answered yes, then you’re in luck since it’s easier more than ever to get support and funding to make it happen. Nowadays, you don’t need to audition to be on Shark Tank or seek investors, funding can be accomplished organically by people who support your idea or invention or ‘your backers/pledgers’ through crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding has become the new norm for many entrepreneurs (or wantrepreneurs) and businesses today, with many successfully getting their start or a major financial push by doing so. It’s been said that the easiest way to start a business or generate a business idea is to solve a problem – or to enhance and make one’s life easier.

Check out below, seven cool crowdfunding projects, that are the perfect example and will probably make your life easier.

1. Ransomly

    We’re living in an age where people cannot disconnect from their phones – they’re addicted! So, nine times out of ten, you’ve probably been a victim of ‘phubbing’, which is the act of being totally ignored in the company of a person (usually a friend, co-worker or relative) because they’re too occupied with their phone! Not to worry, since a cool, affordable new device/app might be the solution to it all.

    Ransomly is an app/device that goes by the motto, ‘disconnect to reconnect.’ By using the app/device, it can make a room ‘app free’, giving the user the power to hold a device ‘ransom’, preventing the use of certain apps. This is perfect for situations when you’re out with your friends and actually want to hang out with them or for parents, hold your children’s phone apps ransom until they complete their chores! Ransomly is currently available on only Android and will go live via kickstarter on November 15.

    2. Fanight

    unspecified

      The Fanight by ITIWANT serves many purposes, however, the main ones are to make you look stylish, protect you from harmful UV rays and use all visible light to self-illuminate. No batteries or electrical charge needed!

      All you need to do is expose the jacket to any kind of a visible light for 20 minutes and this jacket will illuminate for 2 hours! The jacket is made of special fabric which is sweat-absorbent, as well, features a built-in headphone port and can fold down to the size of your palm.

      The Fanight crowdfunding campaign has been live less than a week, and is half way close to their funding goals, meaning you still have a chance to get the World’s first self-illumating jacket.
