We saw a lot of interesting and fun things hit the market this year, and we saw a whole host of interesting things hit the almost-market on Kickstarter.

Cleaning the toilet is just one gross, unavoidable bathroom chore. This Kickstarter for SpinX got us daydreaming of the day when we would no longer have to pick up a toilet brush for a sparkling clean (and hygienic) bathroom.

This Kickstarter Converts Kitchen Scraps Into Cooking Fuel

The HomeBiogas 2.0 combines green living with modern technology. After collecting your food scraps (aka composting) the HomeBiogas turns the scraps into cooking gas (they claim up to 3 hours worth a day) and fertilizer for your garden with shocking speed.
