What's the most interesting project you've backed?

What projects have you backed on Kickstarter that we should know about?

To jump on this post, the most unique projects I've worked on ranged from a self dry jacket to an origami canoe.

For the Enduro guys, your cars look super cool and watched your video all the way through. It looks great, can we get in touch and offer some help if you're stuck right now? I could totally give some advice on the next steps.

ThoughtfullJon wrote:I am the creator of this project, and I think it is quite unique and awesome. Toys to be passed down from generation to generation that everyone loves.

Enduro - Super high quality toy vehicles with amazing driving mechanics. Fully functioning steering and suspension, controlled by a finger or hand. Crafted with care from 100% sustainable materials and built to last for lifetimes. They just don't make them like this anymore.

-We are currently at day 2 and seem to have lost a lot of momentum, even though we've been chosen as a "project we love" by kickstarter. If you wouldn't mind checking the project out, I would really appreciate it!

I recently back the Safari Seat, which is an open source wheelchair design for developing countries. Incredibly thoughtful and innovative design. I'd love to see more projects like this one.

The bFan® delivers a cooler, deeper, more restful night’s sleep while saving you money on your electric bill.

What is the bFan®?

The bFan® is for people who want to save money on their air conditioning bill and not go broke trying to sleep cooler.
The bFan® is for people who are hot sleepers and really want to sleep cooler or have cooler sheets at night.
The bFan® is for women who suffer from the effects of menopause including night sweats derived from hot flashes.
The bFan® is for people who have a medical condition that causes their body to get hot at night and want to sleep cooler.
For people wanting to take advantage of the huge health benefits obtained from sleeping cooler.
The bottom line is that almost everyone will benefit from the bFan®. Whether you are a hot sleeper just trying to get a good night’s sleep or looking to gain maximum health benefits as well as lowering your electric bill, the bFan® is for you. Many people have been able to lower their electric bill by as much as 50%

Wicked cool project!

SURVEY! Bachelor thesis about: REWARD-BASED CROWDFUNDING- Variables behind supporting a venture, and its success.


Hi everyone. I'm currently writing my bachelor thesis about reward-based crowdfunding, and I've made this survey for anyone who has ever contributed to a project on a platform like Kickstarter.com, Indiegogo.com..

I'm studying different determinants behind a successful or unsuccessful crowdfunding project.
With the help of this survey, case study, statistic and a lot of research papers, hopefully it will give me deeper knowledge of the "backers" and why some projects fail or succeed, which I will publish later.


The survey is only 8 pages, and will only take about 3-5 minutes.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Thank you,
Martine

Hey guys, we just launched our crowdfunding campaign after years of development. It's going great, but we wanted to get some feedback from the gurus on how we can make it even better!
We put an enormous amount of work into this and think it's going to be really groundbreaking, so hope you can take a minute to provide some feedback - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/star ... chnology#/

I am doing an academical research on crowdfunding whose purpose is to better understand which are the factors that drive people to invest in crowdfunding and which are the factors that demotivate them from using it. The survey takes 5 minutes and it can be important to understand crowdfunding a bit better. I would be very thankful if you could fulfil it: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

I have backed a few interesting projects:

Eve V laptop (hopefully getting it in April.
Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry - pocket-PC. Got t a few months ago. Sadly not living up to expectations.
Skullkey - Multi-tool for the key ring. Works pretty well actually.
Antelope - Sportswear: Muscle Activating Smartsuit. Still waiting. Hoping to see it in May/June.
Ironsky 2 - The coming race - Movie. Sequel to an awesome movie. Got my perk of being an extra in the movie. Now just waiting for the red carpet premiere in early 2018.

I did a bunch of others. Some good, some bad.
