5 Toronto crowdfunding projects to support right now

Toronto is filled with a slew of startups, incubators and innovative individuals who create new technologies, services and every day items in the hopes of improving our lives. And, many such makers turn to the crowd-funding sites in order to make their dreams a reality. That's why we waded through both Kickstarter and Indiegogo to share some unique ideas that you can help bring to life.

Here are 5 Toronto-based crowdfunding projects you can support right now.

Nanoleaf Smarter Kit: Voice-Controlled Lighting
Use Siri to control your lights. Seriously. This is even better than the 1980s-era Clapper; instead of clapping on and off, Nanoleaf used Zigbee Protocol technology allowing you to verbally control your light bulbs. You'll never have to superfluously leave your bed again.

QUBE+
Toronto-based company Matrix Audio is well-known for its line of portable speakers. Now, it's adding QUBE+ to its roster. It describes its newest product as having "all that one could want from a portable speaker." This aluminum, water-resistant and Bluetooth 4 and speakerphone compatible device is also incredibly sleek. With two weeks left to go, this project is nearly halfway to its $50,000 goal.

Productivity Planner
Intelligent Change, the Toronto company behind the Five Minute Journal, is introducing a brand new product to help you stop procrastinating. Called the Productivity Planner, this souped-up agenda is cleanly designed and features 244 pages that'll keep you on track to meet all of your goals. This project has already amassed $100,000 more than its original target.

Pickle Pipe
Fermented foods are not only trendy; they're also supposed to be incredibly healthy for you. That's why the Toronto-based company Masontops created an easy-to-use silicon kitchen product that lets you ferment veggies and other foodstuffs with a trusty mason jar. The Pickle Pipe is creating quite a stir and has already surpassed its monetary goal by more than $125,000.

BookMustache
Just in time for Movember, this whimsical handlebar moustache makes reading a book or magazine with one hand easier. If you pledge $9 or more, you're guaranteed your very own BookMustache, but only if the project gets enough funding.
