Some start-ups are leaving the tech world astonished with their amazing innovations. Some with all new ideas, others with creative and innovative approach to executing existing ideas.

Below are a list of five tech start-ups everyone; technology enthusiast or not should look out for in the remaining half of the year:

BAE: A meeting/dating platform intended for the African American community. BAE’s Founder is Brian Gerrard.

Boom by Global Delight: An app that improves the sound quality of audio played on a smartphone or tablet by simulating surround sound and providing other audio control features such as a full-featured equalizer and audio intensity slider. The app is currently available for iOS.

Cujo: A cute looking, simple to use, internet security appliance for homes, which, if it works as promised could help people avoid all sorts of information-security problems.

Diggidi: A communications app, initially targeting dating, that allows people to safely communicate without exchanging personal information even if their only “meeting” has been a second of eye contact. The concept behind the app – that a person can show an image on the screen of his or her phone and someone else who sees the image can then communicate with the first person without either knowing the other’s identity or contact information – is interesting and may have uses beyond dating.

Dog Parker: An outdoor, secure mini-doghouse that stores can place outside of their facilities so that people can safely leave their dogs while shopping. The firm is in pilot in New York City and plans to spread to other major cities as well.
