The world of Kickstarter is a fascinating one, a place where anything is possible if you have a clear vision and a little ingenuity. Some ideas, like the Mine Kafon we feature, might save thousands of lives, while others like Robotive's smartphone-powered Robot, Romo, just happen to look cool. Of course, not every Kickstarter is created equally. Some come off like desperate pleas for cash to pursue a passion project, and others are just plain wacky or riff on someone else's idea. We've compiled a guide to the most bizarre Kickstarters created this year, from interlocking socks to combat kitchenware. And who knows, perhaps you'll get inspired to start one yourself.
