Loving Kickstarter

It took me a little while to warm up to Kickstarter, but I’m totally in love now, and it was this project that turned me:

This is a totally awesome clock made of 180 RGB leds. It’s running off an Arduino, and the source code is available for the clock. Beyond being open and┬áprogrammable, the thing is gorgeous, and now hangs in my office at work.

There is something really rewarding about being involved in a great kickstarter project. There is so much communication between the creators and the backers, and you really do feel like you are co-investing in someone’s dreams to make something awesome happen.

Today I just backed my 4th kick starter project, which is a coop Zombie game. They have been blowing through stretch goals, so really can’t wait to see all that’s provided with the final game.
