Misfit and Breathometer are two companies that crowdfunded with Indiegogo and are reaping the benefits. Indiegogo hosted a tent at SXSW and used Misfit and Breathometer as examples of how consumers can help a product take off. Misfit is best know for its wearable fitness device, the Shine, and Breathometer has developed a device that lets users monitor their blood alcohol content.
