by | Mar 30, 2021

See what made these hot Kickstarter projects stand out from the pack:


The Best Kickstarter Projects of 2021


March 2021


6. Seedtime


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


How did your garden do last spring?

1. Badly.

2. REALLY badly.

(I had a lone tomato plant that survived bravely for 3 weeks before a squirrel ripped it out of the ground with its savage little hands.)


Try Seedtime.

It’s a PERSONALIZED home gardening app that makes growing big, beautiful produce easy — no matter where you live.

It tells you when to plant, when to harvest, and everything in between based on YOUR garden’s location.

Stop guessing and start knowing what to do to maximize your yield.

(And watch out for those greedy little squirrels.)



5. Sentien Audio


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


Hey man, what are you listening to?”

“Oh, uhhhh, some serious stuff, dude — hardcore rap, of course!”

**wipes away tear while playing “My Heart Will Go On” by Céline Dion**

WHATEVER you listen to with Sentien Audio, only YOU will hear it.

That’s because this open-ear headset uses bone conduction technology that funnels unbelievably pure sound directly into your inner ear.

It doesn’t use earpieces and DOESN’T block your ears…

So you can wear it comfortably all day long.

(While staying alert to what’s around you.)



4. The Gemini Jacket by Oros


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


Will you ever experience temperatures that cold?

Holy crap I hope not!

But it’s sure nice to know that the Gemini Jacket by OROS would have you covered if you got lost wandering around Antarctica.

It features NASA-inspired SOLARCORE® Insulation that offers crazy warm protection WITHOUT bulky layers.

From a -321°F liquid nitrogen blast to the whipping winds on top of a mountain, this jacket protects you like NO other.



3. Retio


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


Think back to the FIRST song you remember hearing on the radio…

“Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears?

“Lose Yourself” by Eminem?

“Symphony No. 9” by Beethoven?

(Wait… how old are you?!)

Whatever it was, transport yourself back to simpler times with Retio.

It’s a retro radio speaker handcrafted in California from American black walnut, 360 brass, and vintage Nixie tubes.

Yes, it looks and sounds great.

But Retio is designed to be MORE than a top-tier speaker.

It’s meant to bring back memories from a time that’s gone but not forgotten…

When we’d gather around the radio, shut our eyes, close our mouths, and listen.



2. DUEX Lite & DUEX Plus


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


Imagine having an EXTRA laptop screen to watch March Madness!

What’s that?

Your boss can read your emails?!

Imagine having an EXTRA laptop screen to get more work done!

DUEX Lite & DUEX Plus get the job done.

(No matter how you use them.)

These lightweight monitors easily attach to ANY laptop and give you INSTANT access to a sleek 2nd screen whenever you need it.

The ultra-crisp display is perfect for watching buzzer beaters updating spreadsheets.



1. Movo WebMic HD Pro


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021

What you said:

“I want more money, Joe.”

What your boss heard:

“I want to lick you, toe.”

The Movo WebMic 4K Pro can’t help you recover from such a disaster…

But it CAN make sure it never happens again.

It’s a 4K webcam that unlocks crystal-clear video AND premium sound.

No more grainy feed.

No more muffled sound.

Just crisp, clear audio and video EVERY SINGLE TIME.




February 2021


8. Keepods


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


One second you’re just a few strides away from finishing 3-miles on the treadmill…

The next you’re overhearing the tail end of a convo about the guy’s “strange rash” on the machine beside you.

What happened?

Your earbuds fell out!

Keepods keep your earbuds where they BELONG — in your ears.



7. FinalPress


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


“#1 Dad”

“World’s Best Boss”

“Slightly above average employee at dead end job that I hate”

WHATEVER is written on your favorite mug, fill it up with this:


It brews delicious coffee DIRECTLY in your favorite mug.

No capsules, no paper filters, and absolutely NO MESS.

Just fill it up, drop it in, and stir for a few seconds…





6. Thinking Egg II


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


Relax your mind.

Let it wander…

You are not at home for the 137th straight month.

Your boss is not, “up your a**.”

And your hair is no longer leaving you.

You are on a beach.

A mountain.

A glorious riverside resort.

THAT is the power of positive thinking and the magic behind Thinking Egg II.

These ultra-relaxing pods have calming, smooth surfaces that remind you that it’s ok to slow down.



5. Orbitkey ID Card Holder

The Orbitkey ID Card Holder System is a refreshingly MODERN upgrade over standard card holders.

2. Prepd Chef Skillet


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021

Problem #2: Stop buying pans from stores that also sell diapers!

1. Polaris


Best Kickstarter Projects 2021


“Just point and click, how hard could it be?!”

Uh, really hard.

That’s why the average photographer’s night shot looks more like a spilled can of black beans with a few mini-marshmallows sprinkled on top.

Polaris doesn’t take the perfect picture for you…

But it comes pretty darn close.

This smart electric tripod head captures stunning sunsets and stellar night skies whether it’s your first shoot or you’re a seasoned pro.

Home gyms from the ’90s had 3 things in common:
