There are lots of cool home gadgets available on the market at the moment and we have a fair idea what you can do with them.
Home automation and home gadgets are industry that is growing at exponential pace and future is definitely looking bright for this branch of tech. Question is who will be the first to make a complete system that people start using at a massive scale. Would that be brands like Apple or Samsung that have a huge infrastructure ready for new projects and are already trying to enter the market, or will it be someone new?
Kickstarter has made a perfect platform for anyone with a good product or idea to get funding for production and distribution. How big the Kickstarter funding has become in just couple of years is best shown on the example of crowdfunded PC game StarCitizen which by today is funded with 116 million dollars! With that in mind we will try to find a new success story with cool home gadgets from Kickstarter that may or may not shape the world of home automation and the way we interact with our homes.
