So in the past month, I have contributed to the following campaigns:
Self watering planter I saw on Jezebel:
Cool sash/purse thing:
Hot Sauce because Mr. I is a spice head.
Board game based on an awesome Neil Gaiman story:
Helping to rebuild a honeybee cooperative in the part of Sichuan that was struck by the earthquake earlier this year. I spent 3 weeks in that part of China in the 90's as part of an exchange group from my High School, so I see it as a way to give back to the people of the region who were so very kind to us.
The Button Tracker. An ADHDer's dream come true. Attach it to an object, and if you wander away from said object, it sends your phone a message.
Rob Ford Crackstarter, because really, how could I not?
Underwear designed to be pretty and handle stress incontinence.
Campaigns that interest me, but I haven't contributed to:
A medical device that can take all your vitals just by pressing it against your forehead:
A neat baby carrier. My sister is expecting.
Pretty South Asian playing cards. A fair number of my students come from South Asia, so there is a potential to use these in class somehow.
A movie starring Amber Benson (!) and Neil Gaiman (!) written by Michael Reeves(!) !!!
Brick Pi. A system that combines the Raspberry Pi computer with Lego to build robots.
So I may have overdid it a little. I think I'll take a break for a while.
So, anybody else have Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaigns they have contributed to? Or just things on either site that you think are cool?
