These Kickstarter projects are the current standouts for college students

Here are some cool Kickstarter projects that you should definitely be supporting.

The Out of Eden Walk. The Out of Eden Walk is the foundation of Paul Salopek’s seven-year, 21,000-mile foot journey, as he retraces the pathways of humanity’s migration around the globe. Salopek is a two-time Pulitzer winner and foreign correspondent. Your support goes to help the Out of Eden Walk become more accessible, by creating educational workshops at colleges across the country.

Green Alert. You might never doze off in class again, thanks to this unique and potent mixture of coffee and green tea. It sounds dubious, but with nearly 100 backers and a review that mentions “laser focus with no crash,” it’s almost impossible not to try either of the unique blends, Refresh or Primal.

Blinky Shoes. Do you feel nostalgic about the cool light-up shoes you had as a kid? We might have a solution. These light-up LED strips attach to any pair of shoes you already have. If you’re tech-savvy, you can program them to your preferred color pattern. Absolutely perfect for raves, dances, or any nighttime activity.

Inkbox. Do you want a tattoo, but you aren’t quite ready to make the plunge? Inkbox has you covered, with over 300 designs that will last 2 weeks on your skin. Though they’re temporary, they’re not the dollar-store temporary tattoos you’re thinking of from childhood. The organic formula is fruit-based, so go get inked (temporarily).

The Range of Light: Night and Day on the John Muir Trail. These two photographers (focusing on astrophotography) have photographed small sections from the trail before, but now they’re setting out to document the whole thing, from Yosemite to Mount Whitney. Ultimately, they’ll be producing a book filled with photographs of the 211 mile trek. 

Make sure you head over to Kickstarter and check out these projects.
