It’s interesting to see how Kickstarter has evolved. It’s now used by “established” companies to launch products. Most of the well backed products have professionally made videos and well oiled PR campaigns behinds the scenes.

You get a lot of the same products, just more advanced.

More 3D printers.

More drones.

More self-contained gardens.

More board games.

I miss rough edges. Rough edges don’t get funded thought. Maybe just like Kickstarter was a way of funding startups to kickstart them, we need something something even smaller to help with the individuals who want to create something cool. Something like Quirky once was.
