These 5 Products Are A (Crowdfunding) Dream Come True

This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are a mad scientist's dream come true. All you have to do is think of a crazy idea, like a tennis ball launcher for dogs or a panini press that puts Jesus' face on sandwiches, and if funded, that crazy dream will become a crazy reality. But funding isn't as easy as it seems, which is why it's truly an accomplishment to earn that green check mark. Here are five incredible products that Kickstarter and Indiegogo made possible.

Raised over $1,000,000 on Indiegogo.

The internet is full of money and opportunity, but it's also full of hackers and scammers who constantly need you to wire them that money. The Keezel Safe Internet Device + Lifetime VPN Subscription protects you by creating a VPN (Virtual Private Network) so no one can see what apps and websites you're using. It works on any public or private WiFi network, and also doubles as a portable battery, so you never have to worry about your phone running out of juice during an especially intense Pokemon Go session.

Micro Drone 3.0 Combo Pack



Raised over $3,000,000 on Indiegogo.

Drones allow you to capture some truly amazing photos and videos, but not everybody has $400 to drop on a flying robot. (Side Note: We actually live in a world now where a common conversation topic is "I can possibly afford that flying robot." The future kind of snuck up on us there.) Fortunately, the Micro Drone 3.0 does everything that the most expensive drones can do, but at a fraction of the price. It comes with a handset, has all the drone features you've come to expect (720p video streaming, VR compatibility, jealous looks from neighbors), and is suited for both beginners and experts.

Aside from giving all of us a healthy appreciation for DragonForce, Guitar Hero was a fun way to play a fake guitar without leaving the house. However, it didn't actually teach you how to play a real guitar, which is a decent skill to have if you like instantly being the most interesting person at a house party. Jamstik+, on the other hand, totally teaches you how to play a real guitar, using actual strings and not a series of plastic buttons. Jamstik+ instructs you on how to play chords, scales, and entire songs within minutes, so you'll be ready to rock the next time a famous band invites you onstage.

Raised over $350,000 on Kickstarter.

Apple Watches are so 2017. If you want to turn heads with a timepiece, start rockin' a watch that's dedicated to the distant Xeric Trappist-1 solar system. The Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase Watch features a domed crystal made from Hesalite -- a material initially developed for NASA -- and a display that tells you the time and the current moon phase. We made it, space nerds!

Get the Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase Watch (Silver Blue) for $244.99, or 30 percent off.

Is there anything more convenient than the Ceramic Coated Nonstick Color-Changing Pan? The IllumiScrub Light-Up Loofah, maybe. Just, all the light-up things.
