My next post was explaining my initial discovery of Kickstarter, and the opportunity it provides to see inventive products and contribute to their production.
So Naturally here I am posting about how I became a backer of the Pebble smart watch on kickstarter. This watch immediately got me interested, with its simplicity and possibilities, I couldn’t resist. They were hoping to raise $100,000, I decided to be a backer when it reached $1 million, with the confidence they had the support to be successful. Little did I know in the following few weeks until the end of the campaign it reached over $10 million.
Being a backer of this style of device has had its ups and downs, reaching a year since my original pledge I’m excited (anxious) to hopefully receive the watch very soon. I hope it will live up to my expectations and the developers promises.
What have you backed? or what do you think would be a great kickstarter idea?
