Hush Nears $200K In Crowdfunding Campaign

San Diego-based Hush has nearly doubled its original, $100,000 goal on its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, with over $196,000 in commitments--and growing--for its smart earplug project. Hush is developing smart earplugs which are controlled by a smartphone app, allowing users to specify which alarms can be heard through the earplugs. The company has doubled its fundraising in less than a week.
