Who doesn't love the look of rugged, wooden sunglasses? The endangered rainforest trees that were cut down to build them, probably. And you, since you care about the environment. Enter Northwoods Sunglasses, a brand of locally and sustainably sourced frames made from hemp, wood, and stone that are saving our planet and classing up your eyewear game, one frame at a time.
Luna: The Personal Home Robot
Status: $19,916 of $500,000 goal
Estimated delivery: February 2015
Every day, we inch a little closer to life the way The Jetsons lived it, robot butler included. Luna is the first human-sized robot designed for personal use, at a price point people besides the US Government can afford. Running on Linux with a touchscreen display, Luna is fully locomotive and can walk your dog, bring you water, or whatever else you program her to do. Just nothing creepy, okay? She doesn't even have hands, anyway.
The BulletSafe Bulletproof Baseball Cap
Status: $9,236 of $3,500 goal—FUNDED
Estimated delivery: December 2015
Yes, you can literally get shot in the head while wearing this hat and live to tell the tale (provided the blow is from a .40, 9mm and .38 caliber round). It's constructed with ballistic panels inside the baseball cap shell, and may just be the future best friend of journalists in war-torn areas everywhere.
Status: $406,026 of $30,000 goal—FUNDED
Estimated delivery: April 2015
