Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropic travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the Hypercube charger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Aroo Travel Compressor and Adapter, which is an adapter for the existing Aroo Compression system that we’ve talked about before.

All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Aroo Travel Compression system features

We’ve talked earlier about the Aroo Travel Compression Minibar which helps compress your luggage to help you fit more things in your luggage. That is still available on Indiegogo, but one of the big problems was that it required a certain type of vacuum bag. Now there’s the Aroo Compressor Adapter, which works on just about every type of vacuum bag out there. So if you already have other type of compression bags, now you can use them with the Aroo compressor adapter

Here are a few pictures of the Aroo Travel Compression system

Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the Aroo Travel Compression system
