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 Tropicfeel travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the AirThrone travel lounger, 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 RYPE, which bills itself as a tool to help you learn a new language by speaking it on Day 1. I thought of this as a possible addition to a traveler’s repertoire if you find yourself traveling in a country where you don’t speak the language. All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.
Rype language learning features
Here are a few pictures of how Rype works

- $99 for 12 month access

Again, here is the link to back the RYPE language learning tool – they are currently set to ship in March 2020
