- Kickstarter anyone a successful backer?
So anybody received anything that they have backed on Kickstarter (or similar)?Posted 4 years ago
I’ve backed MOSS
Hopefully it will be as good as it looks?footflapsSubscriber
I’ve backed several things recently, but they all deliver next year.Posted 4 years agokeefmacSubscriber
yep, vivax laptop case. looks to be very nearly ready to be delivered. APosted 4 years ago
Also backed a screen protector for a phone, first one delivered was really cack (bad batch from factory). The guy behind it gave everyone a free replacement of the version two model after modifying the design.somoukSubscriber
I backed a mini drive project for the SD storage slot on Macs and received my production version in the post.
Considering backing a raspberry Pi case kickstarter that’s going now:Posted 4 years agoirvbMember
I backed this after seeing Mike Dion in Ride the Divide.Posted 4 years agojam boSubscriber
Yup. Got it a couple of weeks ago ahead of schedule.
Just backed this one too as it was cheap and a great idea:Posted 4 years agojedimasterMember
i backed Velocity Clip and it’s amazing, definitely worth the money
it works great with my Xperia Z, the only bad thing though is a very narrow angle of the camera lens. the only way to overcome it is to use some wide angle magnetic lensesPosted 4 years agosamuriMember
I’ve backed RIDEYE, a camera that will capture my own death.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I backed the spurcycle better bicycle bell , perhaps it’s overpriced but i’m a sucker for coveting simple designed things of tactile beauty, and it will match my Tripster so that was a good enough reason.
I’ve also backed the Graeme Obree “Beastie” documentory as it and Graeme deserves to get funding so a wider audience gets to see it.
Also backed the Patchbloks mini programmable synth modules, i went halfers on the rainbow set of 4 with a mate.
I wanted a decent looking dual dock for my ipad and iphone so i thought this’d be worth a punt, Everdock duo.
I wish i had backed this midi controller as it looks ideal for my bleepy noise making sessions but at £275 for an untested bit of kit i’ll wait till hear reports of an actual unit, and with that sort of kit it’s vital to have a hands on play beforehand.
There’s loads of projects on the site that’s deserving of financial backing, and there’s also loads of stuff that makes you scratch your head and think “wtf are they thinking?”, usually involving the arty or theatre creative stuff.Posted 4 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
Not bike related. I backed a board game called Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster.
It’s initial goal for production was about $20000. It raised $970000. The stretch goals got very messy and confusing. In the end I did get a lot of extras and the game was better for it. They had a lot of production problems, the printers disappearing overnight, very late deliveries, some of the sculpts of the miniatures were not as expected. It has worked out ok in the end, but there are a lot of backers who are not very happy.
It was my first Kickstarter and I went into it under the misapprehension that I would be guaranteed a product. Looking deeper into the Kickstarter business models I’m one of the lucky ones that got what I invested in. I doubt I’d back another to the level which I backed this one. £20-30 isn’t much to lose to get someone’s business going. I jumped in with nearly £200. A bit more to lose with nothing guaranteed to be delivered.Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
SeeSense light too – expecting to receive in January I think.
And the Black Moth Super Rainbow album project. Didn’t go for a mask though.Posted 4 years agosimon_gSubscriber
Couple of nice pens, the Ribman’s hot sauces, the new Morph episodes, various board games.
Works well for people who’ve got most of the way there, have something good to show and just need the money to get a proper production run sorted – hence why it works so well for board games.
There’s a lot of pie-in-the-sky stuff on there though – a good proportion never hit their funding goals so any backers just get refunds.Posted 4 years agosimonhbaconMember
Backed and received the “nutter” bike multi tool
Seem to remember that it popped in in a recent Fresh Goods Friday.Posted 4 years agoDuane…Member
Backed this a while back in a sleepy haze, should arrive soon;
Backed the Melon Optics ski goggles on IndieGoGo the other day too, they’re supposed to arrive today or tomorrow 🙂Posted 4 years agoNickSubscriberPosted 4 years agowillardMember
Yup. Just got a mail saying that funding has been successful for a book that looked awesome. I tend to have a browse of the new new projects once a week or so to find anything that piques my interest. Just pledged some money to a couple of artists from Brum who are putting out a graphic novel that looked good.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
I’ve got four things on the go, three on Kickstarter; a tripod stand for an iPhone that clicks into one flat wallet sized sheet, a small Bluetooth stereo portable speaker with a bamboo case, and retro woven speaker grills, a new album by one of my favourite singer-songwriters, Gemma Hayes, and an album in celebration of Mark Linkous from Sparklehorse, to raise awareness of mental illness.Posted 4 years ago
