A stellar wireless Hi-Fi headphone, Panda features never-before-seen tech in a never-leave-at-home design. A collaboration between Drop and THX, these headphones provide high-fidelity sound for audio nerds. They feature planar-ribbon drivers (which, for the uninitiated, translates to “truly stellar sound”). Drop raised $1.3M in less than 60 days.
“There were three major things that contributed to our success: social validation, strong brand network, and marketing activities. We spread the word about our campaign launch with influencers, our own drop.com community and the audiophile community on third-party forums. We also did a lot of events (listening parties, CES showcase) and outreach (email newsletters, community outreach, and PR) to build a strong brand.” — Amey Kanade, Head of Product Marketing at Drop

Don’t let Flash’s small size fool you: it’s a beast of a battery pack. Its 150W output can charge four devices simultaneously. And it charges devices fast — your laptop included. It’s created using Tesla Graphene composite batteries and is among the new class of advanced charging products that are taking off on Indiegogo lately. The best part? It can fit in the palm of your hand.

This hot campaign can help you stay cool. Midea was designed to reinvent the window air conditioner, which is usually noisy, hard to install, and energy-draining. But not the Midea.

The unique Inverter Quattro technology keeps your home cool through the worst of the summer while using 35% less energy to run. And guess what! You can still open and close your window at any time!

Making a few taps on your smartphone elevates your mood if you happen to find a particularly good puppy video, but this wearable has a more direct impact on your emotions.

Hapbee is like a playlist for your feelings, with the ability to replicate dozens of different feelings by “playing” predictable electromagnetic signals.

Ah, golf. It’s a great sport, but no one likes to schlep all those clubs around the green. Luckily, eWheels can help. eWheels V2 by Alphard Golf turns your pushcart into a premium electric golf caddy that can be controlled via remote or follow you via a magnetic smart tether. It rolls over bumps, goes up and down hills and carries your golf bag through the entire course — without hassle or sweat. The campaign raised $100,000 in its first 15 minutes.
Rankings, amount raised, and other stats are current as of 2/27/20.
