View Full Version : Do you support the projects on Kickstarter?

Have you guys ever been a backer of the projects started on Kickstarter? Some of the ideas on KS are clever and here's a few I found that I like. I suppose once the project is founded it takes a few months before it's in the backers hands.

I haven't myself. I remember reading something about Kickstarter last month but failed to check it out. Thanks to your post I'm going to give it a look. I do like the erognomic holder.

Recently I've contributed to the TikTok and LunaTik; and tapose´

My good friend is in industrial designer http://www.coroflot.com/tl924 http://www.idsa.org/content/content1/teddy-lu-university-illinois-urbana–champaign and he won the LunaTik at an ID convention. It was awesome seeing a product you backed come to fruition. It would be cool if he could work MNML, but I'm sure he'll have his own design company when all is said and done. He is ridiculously talented and that LunaTik couldn't have gone to a better guy. Sorry for going OT.

Yeah the problem with some of the stuff on Kickstarter is that some of that stuff is already out there. There's probably 3 or 4 Case/Stand combinations already on the market. For something on Kickstarter to take off the product really has to be unique and fills a need.

I've supported several projects on there. If the amount (or more) is reached then the funds are sent straight to the person as soon as the project closes. One that I supported was for guitarist Monte Pittman's second album. He asked for $5K and raised over $65K. I'll have to check out some of the tech and design projects.

Just backed Sensu iPad Paintbrush Stylus combo (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/797362124/sensu-brush-a-true-painting-experience-on-your-ipa)

This looks really great, especially for 30$!!

It's a paintbrush on one end then you can flip it over and put the brush end into the cap and it becomes a stylus. I am really excited to see how popular this becomes. Right now there's three days left, and it is successful!:D

Ooh ya, I saw that one too. It looks killer but at 80$ I don't know, it's not that different in comparison to any other iPad keyboard!

Edit: after a second look, I am very tempted. Right now I use the Apple wireless keyboard with my MBP and this keyboard looks pretty cool if I could use it on my mac.

I've been more impressed with the iPhone related projects than the iPad ones so far. But I love the whole Kickstarter concept.

I backed the Scandy (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scandy/scandy-scans-with-your-smartphone), which funds in a few days, and they're working on the possibility of adding an iPad 2 attachment for direct scanning with the iPad. (Since the iPhone has a way better camera, I'll be sticking with that one.)

Bought the Olloclip (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/patricko/olloclip-iphone-4-quick-change-camera-lens-system?ref=search) interchangeable iPhone 4 lenses about two weeks ago (well after it was funded), and my only regret is that I didn't find it soon enough to get the Kickstarter price! These are awesome--if they don't come out with a revised model whenever the iPhone 5/6/42/whatever comes out next year, I may be stuck with the 4/4s body style forever, because these lenses would make that a sacrifice I could live with. LOL

And I keep eyeing the iSteadi (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1180855626/isteadi-compact-stabilizing-snap-in-mount-for-ipho?ref=live) (steadicam type mount for phones). The problem with that one is a problem I see with a number of Kickstarter projects--people seem to think, "Oh, I have this great idea, I'll just put it up here and watch the money roll in!" No promotion, no publicity, too few updates on Kickstarter...no funding. I'm just not sure this one's going to make it, but heck, I'll back it anyway and hope for the best.

The Sensu paintbrush looks appealing. But for me, it would be one of those things I'd buy, try once, remember that I've never learned to paint, and then throw in a drawer. LOL The Levitatr keyboard just looks too bulky to me, though I see the mega geek appeal for it. Bet it ends up in ThinkGeek's inventory eventually.

Any other good ones? Wish someone would put one up for a good, lightweight, waterproof iPad case for reading in the tub... :D

I just backed the Romo (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peterseid/romo-the-smartphone-robot?ref=live), it looks really cool just to have as a toy. I can just picture my cats attacking it as I move toward them. The only thing I'm not sure about, is if you need a second iPhone to control it.. hmm

Edit: Do I need two smartphones to control Romo?
No. You can use an iPad, iPod touch, computer, or another smartphone to use RomoRemote.

Aside from the Remote app, you can definitely use one (smartphone/iPod touch) device to play with Romo. You can program Romo with just one device and have Romo track colors with one device. In addition, there are more apps coming that uses only one device for Romo.



I like what you said about the Sensu, "it would be one of those things I'd buy, try once, remember that I've never learned to paint, and then throw in a drawer." Even still Irish, if you take a good look at it you can still use it as a regular stylus if your not into the artsy stuff!

The Romo is cool...we have three generations of Roombas currently, so adding that might tip the balance in the household towards our robot overlords. LOL LOVE that they're making it eminently hackable though.

One thing I do like about Kickstarter though is that many of the designers are willing to listen to their consumers so openly. It was interesting to see the design changes that occurred with Scandy along the way as I backed that one pretty early on; looks like Levitatr is going through the same kind of open design tweak process. (Liked that it's thinner now, but hate the new battery setup--I much prefer easily replaced, readily available AA or AAA rechargeables to a permanently installed LiIon that requires cabling to recharge. Personal preference, though, YMMV.)

I keep looking at the Sensu for my husband; he's the stylus user in the family both for writing and some sketching. I tried the Pogo Sketch early on, but got bored with it rather quickly. He's nearly worn it out.

That is true, I do agree with you on the battery thing although in my situation either will suffice because I will be using it in a work environment and I can have it connected at all times. I did end up backing it, I couldn't resist. I can't wait to see what these savvy programers will release for the Romo!

The roomba is the automatic vacuum right? How well does that work..

Off-topic: I am surprised to see you out of the iPhone hacks section..

I do wander occasionally--though lately I'm lucky if I have five minutes to spare, and those five usually get spent on the iPhone side of the board. LOL Today, I've had a bit of breathing room, so a little more time to explore.

Roombas are awesome and get better with every generation--their ability to cope with things such as avoiding stairs and not eating cords has improved a great deal since the early days. Grey, our Roomba 532 pet model, is currently dealing with the dog hair in the kitchen, living room, and dining room, and doing so more quietly than I could with the big canister vac. Takes a bit longer, but then, I'm free to work on other things while it's getting done.

Now, if only I could program it with an iOS remote! The Romo project has potential that way--it's a toy now, but having had Roombas and seen their usefulness, I can see where they've got plenty of room to grow. I need to look more closely at that one; it's worth backing just for the potential of what it might become someday.

I didn't catch the Ollolip on KS, but I've had one for a couple of weeks now, and it's amazing. The Scandy smartphone scanning stand I backed was funded today, and they're hoping to ship before Xmas. I suspect that's overly optimistic, but it should be interesting to see how close they come to making that happen.

The TouchFire is near identical to another Kickstarter keyboard overlay that is going into production soon. I think that one was funded a few months ago now.

Brydge w/speakers: It's for sale, I have one I prefer, and I don't like the way it attaches to the iPad, nor do I like the stickers on the keys.

Cruxskunk keyboard (thought by the way things were going, this would show up before the Brydge.

Playgo, an Airplay device that did not get funded.

An iPhone surround bumper (I forgot the name) that also did not get funded.

I plan to hold back on being a sponsor, have hoped for a couple of items to really come through, but didn't and the one that was successful generated a lot of ill will due to their lack of communication to questions by sponsors, some of which were legitimate questions regarding major changes and design, and delivery options and costs.

I may support some of the arts and charity efforts though as it seems to be a good and well known crowd sourcing resource.

They haven't shipped so it's impossible to tell if its worth it.

Just looking at it right now doesn't seem like a reasonable price. Looks like it should be $50, half that if it didn't do what it does.

I spend more than the price of the watch on dinner most weekend nights. Worth it is subjective

Check out the Slope iPad stand. Very cool. Uses nanotechnology. Love the simple design. Will look perfect next to my iMac coming in a couple weeks.

Spoke with inventor. Interestingly because of the special properties of the nano foam the longer you keep the iPad on the stand the stronger it adheres. I often get frustrated with suction type devices as they eventually lose their grip.

Congratulations, you enjoy wasting your money. I for one would rather cook my dinner and save the cash.

I'm not saying I wouldn't spend $125 on this watch, but the way it looks right now $50 is a more responsible price. I hope the backers are happy, if they are then I will check it out.

I've backed a number of projects on Kickstarter, not necessarily just for apple products. The most recent one was for the myLED for iPhone and iPad.

I've backed the sequel to Elite by David Braben called Elite Dangerous. He's raised the £1.25M he needed and enough past that to fund a version for the Mac as well. It's due in 2014.

2 iPad flexible stands. Which one do you prefer?

Just backed the "CST-01: World's Thinnest Watch." It's only been up about an hour but it has already gotten a good number of backers already.

I don't really care for suction cups, but if I had to choose, I'd go with the XFLEX.

An art project, which employs 3D printing, and a currently working project called "Dock+" for an iPhone/iPad stand, which is currently awaiting Apple certification.

i typically go on every other day and just pledge for innovative things or useful items, not so much for iphone and ipad accessories though, like recently that firefly blue laser so i can use it for camping, and the the atom key, and im still waiting on that stupid ridge wallet :/
