Have any of you ever heard of Kickstarter? It’s basically a platform that helps innovators make their ideas come true by getting people to fund their projects. So if you see something you like that hasn’t come to life yet, why not back it with a bit of funding and help make it happen?
I recently came across this very successful Kickstarter project called, Pebble. Their goal was only to raise $100,000 however, within 28 hours of putting their project on Kickstarter, they raised $1,000,000! They ended up raising $10,266,845 with 68,929 backers! Guess what Pebble does…
Pebble, is a customizable watch that connects to your iPhone or Android through bluetooth allowing you to be alerted about incoming calls, emails and messages. In addition to that, if you’re an active runner or cyclists, it can track your speed, distance and pace just like Nike+. You can pre-order the watch for $150 at http://getpebble.com.
For functionality and style, I think it’s definitely worth it and will hopefully get one in the future.
I love the concept of Kickstarter. It’s allowed hundreds of people to pitch their product to the masses to garner support and make their ideas, reality.
Have you ever funded or thought of submitting any projects on Kickstarter?
