2. Cumulous — Parasol

An umbrella that only inflates when the sun starts to shine: Imagine how wonderful it would be to see a fleet of these things surrounding a pool — the clouds blow away and then they start to bloom en masse. Amazing.

3. Mars By Crazybaby — Levitating Bluetooth Speaker

indiegogo.com

The fact that it levitates is an insanely cool feature, but it's actually for a practical reason: "360° sound projection reduces sound wave absorption into surfaces by levitating above the subwoofer charging station." In layman's terms: It makes music sound better.

7. Hush — Smart Earplugs

kickstarter.com

Things you don't want to hear: your husband's snoring, your neighbor's band.

Things you do want to hear: an emergency phone call, your alarm clock.

These earplugs will blot out the annoyances and let you focus on the things you actually want to hear.

19. Vessyl — Smart Cup

myvessyl.com

The drinking receptacle that knows what you're drinking, Vessyl can track a plethora of things: how many calories you ingest, if you're hydrated enough, if you're going to get jittery from too much caffeine, how to time your beverage intake to get a good night's sleep, and so much more.

26. Patch Of Sky — Ambient Lights

patchofsky.info

Patch Of Sky will keep you connected with your long-distance loved ones: Each light

is able to access weather information based on your current Facebook location and then display that information with colored light animations. The light will inform your friend or relative "about the sky and world you’re living in" no matter how far away you may be.

33. TellSpec — Food Scanning System

indiegogo.com

A hand-held device that will tell you the allergens, chemicals, nutrients, calories, and ingredients in your food. Avoiding sodium? Point this thing at your meal and find out if you should dig in or put down your fork and step away from the plate.
