Discuss Projects You've Backed

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

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

Please share what really interesting projects/concepts you've supported. I just backed an intriguing project called Sharitabl after my friend sent me info on it. It's really pretty simple, but a fascinating idea unless your name is Mark Zuckerberg of course.

It's a social network just like Facebook except built on the belief the content we create on social media belongs to all of us, and the revenue it produces should be shared and used for good. So, they're giving most of the revenues to charitable organizations which will be selected (voted on) by their users (Brilliant!!). Since I am very involved in philanthropy, this is a concept that really hit home.

Here is the kickstarter link if anyone wants to check it out: http://sharitabl.com/kickstarter

That sounds super awesome! I've backed a lot of video games, but my favorites probably have to be Identity (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/asylum/identity) and The 8th Continent: Lunar Destiny (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/10 ... ar-destiny). I'll definitely check out that link as well!

Interesting about Sharitabl. Like the idea of using the revenue for good. I haven't had a chance to back too many projects recently, but one I have backed was Forgotten Colors - A limited edition art book for all ages: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/da ... ook-for-al

From a technological standpoint, Silic was pretty interesting - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/74 ... ans-itself

It's a T-shirt that can't be stained.

I recently supported a college student who wants to write a gag book and use the money to help pay for college. He posted a explainer video of the book and it made me laugh out loud and think at the same time.

Check out the link

ON ANOTHER NOTE
:
Sharitabl has a great name and appears to be a great project. I certainly LOVE do good projects.

But a couple of things. There is a place, need, and appreciation for {F} type of sites. Indeed, there are pros and cons to all sites.
I will assume that Sharitabl was created by a great (or some great) Social Entrepreneurs, but even social ventures need to make money too! Unless how would they scale? As this project scales it too will have pros and cons.

The UMIGI Pen

I discovered this project on Google when I was looking for writing implements that would be a little easier for my friends who have difficulty using and gripping a pen. The pen is pretty sweet. You just need to shake it down to open it and shake it sideways to close it. Since there are no caps and no buttons to click, it is so much easier for my friends to use.

The creators are running a Kickstarter campaign to develop molds to mass produce the pen. Check them out here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/44751801/umigi-pen.

It's not necessarily the most interesting project but it was certainly a fun one: "I draw comics"! Loved loved it! - Great tool

I mainly just back comics. Tech stuff I have backed always seems to get delayed and not live up to expectations.
