This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.

With the risks often associated with outdoor pursuits, it is important that people stay safe, and thanks to a variety of innovations, they are increasingly able to do so. The Waterlily Micro Turbine uses wind, water or manual power to charge electronic devices, meaning that walkers are free to explore the wilderness without worrying about running out of phone battery. Similarly, the device known as Beartooth connects to smartphones and means that users can communicate in areas where there is weak or no phone signal. The Slovenian invention of the OliLight aims to keep hikers safe by functioning both as a high-tech torch and as a personal rescue beacon.
