After what felt like an extraordinarily long work week, we can鈥檛 wait to plop on the couch and zone out on our smartphones (and yes, we know how Millennial that sounds). While checking in on our fave Instagram dogs and asking Siri for Halloween costume suggestions is definitely on our weekend chill list, we鈥檙e also super excited to catch up on this week鈥檚 latest and greatest maker-backed products on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Here are some of our favorites to check out this weekend.


1. Polygons: As someone who has an entire drawer for measuring cups and spoons, this new space saving kitchen innovation literally made me gasp for joy. Simply fold the measuring spoon origami-style for up to four different measurements and reclaim your storage space for good.


2. QUE Bottle: Whether you鈥檙e running on a trail or to your next meeting, we could all use a little more space in our bags. This cool new water bottle is completely collapsible but not flimsy enough to leak or spill. And yes, it鈥檚 on our Christmas list.


3. Ding: As Cyber Monday approaches, we鈥檙e getting ready for our soon-to-be-purchased online orders to arrive in bundles at our聽door. But instead of getting a pesky note saying that we missed the delivery, this cool doorbell allows users to communicate with any guest straight from their smartphone. Because we needed another excuse to splurge on Amazon鈥


4. Findster Duo: While GPS pet tracking collars aren鈥檛 new, Findster Duo is the first puppy-approved accessory that doesn鈥檛 cost its owner outrageous monthly fees. Combining an activity tracker and a GPS locator, it鈥檚 definitely a must-buy for our best furry friends.

5. Design Your Dream Sandal: You may have heard about this awesome brand from their appearance on Shark Tank or their adorable collab with Sophia Bush. Now the company that was started by three #girlboss women in Uganda is creating a new line of completely customizable sandals for the fashionable and socially conscious woman.


6. Science With Sophie: Let鈥檚 be honest, we鈥檙e a sucker for anything that helps promote STEM opportunities to young women. This hilarious science comedy hosted by Sophie Science is aimed toward girls ages seven to 14 and encourages them聽to explore the world through science and innovation. Yep, we鈥檙e obsessed.


7. Maguss: Move over Harry Potter, this cool new AR game is taking our love of all things magical to the real world. Connecting your smartphone to the Maguss Wand, this free-to-play game allows聽you to duel other wizards, tame wild monsters and hunt for rare ingredients.


8. Chopvalue: Based out of Vancouver, the innovative team behind ChopValue is turning landfill-bound used chopsticks into gorgeous design-friendly pieces 鈥 from tiles to coasters to beautiful shelves.


9. SHOTBOX 2.0: Whether you鈥檙e trying to take the perfect pic for your Etsy store or just trying to elevate your Instagram game, this sweet shotbox lets you easily control everything from gorgeous backgrounds to Snapchat-filter-esque lighting.


10. The Cat Mod: The crazy cat lady in us is OBSESSED with this adorable kitty聽playground by the innovative folks at Catastrophic Creations. Its modular design allows you to聽create a customizable space for your cat to frolic at their leisure.
