Continuing the discussion from Another HUGE crowdfunding scandal, this one makes me sad:
Seeing a discussion of failed crowdfunding (yet again) and ensuing discussion of losing faith in the process… I am curious what else people have backed.
I stayed out of pre-orders for a LONG time. Finally jumped in with both feet about a year ago.
My big ticket items: Glowforge, Tiko, Oura, Lily, Walabot.
Glowforge is trucking along.
Tiko has lots of updates and seems promising, I feel at this point the worst case scenario is that I get a crappy printer, but minimal chance of getting no printer.
My Oura rings show up tomorrow!
Lily continues to release updates. Looks good, but at this point I am not sure it was the right way to go for a drone camera.
Walabot arrives in the next few days. Going to have to hope I can actually do something with it.
My small projects: Dead Man’s Draw, EcoQubeC, LeverAxe, Wonderful world of Creatures & Code, Karmaka, Control, Pins Collective
Dead Man’s Draw: Awesome game. I worked with Derek Paxton back in Civilization IV when the game was created in first incarnation. Playing it physically was SWEET!
EcoQubeC: So far, not impressed. But I finally have clean water and a fish, and the kids like it. So all good.
LeverAxe: Haven’t used the damn thing yet >< But looking forward to doing so! I have it, but haven’t needed to chop wood because my wife suddenly stopped wanting to make fires every day.
Wonderful World: Awesome book. My kid will be ready for it in about 2 years.
Karmaka & Control: No game yet. I doubt there will be any issues with the projects though. Board games are a pretty safe backing.
Pins Collective: Come on… it’s freaking awesome. Even if I will only ever wear it once…
My only failed project I backed: Real Heroes for Real kids (hey… it was my kind of shirt. And I hadn’t realized how easy screen printing is yet)
