Kokoon EEG Headphones that Will Help You to Sleep!

It is on crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo where a lot of innovative tech products first become public these days. You must have heard about successful products such as the Pebble. There are also a number of lesser-known gizmos that have shown up on crowdfunding sites as well.

The projects below are some crowdfunding hopefuls that were launched last week on Kickstarter. The three stand out from the crowd because of their uniqueness. But remember, the products you see on crowdfunding sites are prototypes, not finished products, and funding them is not a guarantee that they will be produced on a commercial scale.


These blocks are aimed at teaching budding engineers (age 6 and above) the basics of electronics. There are ten types of color-coded blocks comprising speakers, LEDs, timers, switches, resistors, power, etc. The blocks connect magnetically. An iPad app comes up with different puzzles that kids must solve so as to build a circuit, and as they do this, they learn the properties of each of these components. A 16-piece starter kit will go for $45 while a more advanced package will retail for $85.
