In the last several years, we’ve seen a big boom in startups throughout various industries. This new entrepreneurial spirit has brought about dozens of websites for crowdfunding, which is the idea of getting funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people. Some of the most notable projects have been the Pebble smartwatch, Oculus Rift, and the Coolest Cooler. But we’re most interested in new inventions that can help us with travel, so here are some projects we’ve found to keep your eye on:
