Kickstarter is really coming into its own as a channel for innovation. Here are a few impressive products.
|A pop-up monitor
This thing collapses down to the size of a book and expands into a 24″ monitor. They even threw in a battery, speakers, and multiple connection options. It’s even better for travel because of the soft, forgiving construction. You don’t have to worry about protecting a delicate monitor.
|A 3D laser display
Yay for the future! This little magic box creates disturbed air that refracts the lasers, drawing an actual 3D object.
|A desktop waterjet cutter
I almost squeeled like a little kid when I saw this thing. Waterjet cutting is the ultimate option because it cuts through everything without reacting.
|A cheap, full-sized, open source CNC machine
Turning a full-sized 4′ by 8′ CNC on its side makes it so much more compact, and using a hanging plotter keeps the hardware small and simple.
