“Brookstone and Indiegogo share a common vision for encouraging makers and introducing people to new technologies from around the world,” said Piau Phang Foo, Senior Executive for Brookstone parent company Sanpower Group. “I’m very excited by the new inventions we’re bringing in from Indiegogo campaigners, and know our customers will be, too.”

• Powerup Dart, a smartphone-controlled paper airplane
• Firewalla, a pocket-sized cyber-security solution for the home
