As far as I'm concerned kickstarter is for the little guy. It's platforms like this that help those who would have never been heard get their chance to show their talents and shine. chad with http://www.landscapelightingworld.com

You're right though, David, that I think Kickstarter projects need to give better time commitments. Other than that... it's awesome. I want almost everything on this list! In my opinion http://www.movingangels.com should be in the new list.

This definitely empowers the "little people" to go off and create something that would otherwise be very difficult to both create and reap the benefit from.

Good thing Formlabs raised $2,945,885. They will likely spend $2,900,000 of it on lawyers defending their patent infringement allegation. Sad that dinosaurs (I'm looking at you RIAA) need the courts to keep a business going that has not evolved to the market environment, or where it's simply appropriate to throw in the towel. 3D printers are now under $1000. A good chunk of the 3D printer market got obliterated by this, and an entirely new segment got created - are the dinos making sub-$1000 printers to keep market share, brand, or play in the newly emerging segment? Nope - send in the lawyers and defend your $20,000 price tag. Failure to adapt to the environment = extinction. And lawyers will only hasten your demise when the money could have been spent on engineering R&D.

Great success stories! If not for Kickstarter, most likely none of these 10 products would have seen the light of day.

Kickstarter is a very interesting way to fund small startups! I am wondering how the site funding and money transfer details work. Does Kickstarter get a cut of the overall funds raised or is there a set fee structure? It sounds like a great way to get ideas funded, I may consider a few projects myself.

You'll be the envy of everyone when you get your Pebble! I am already plotting about how to win it off you in a game of poker or something! :) You're right though, David, that I think Kickstarter projects need to give better time commitments. Other than that... it's awesome. I want almost everything on this list!

I am a huge fan of Kickstarter and I think it will be a game changer in system design but I ordered my Pebble a year ago and am still waiting! Got my Twine though and love it
