e-Paper watch for iPhone and Android a smash hit on Kickstarter

1

What do you call a Kickstarter project 

2

that with 34 days to go

3

has raised $2,480,924 (as of 1:17 p.m. today) from 17,657 backers?

6

I call it a smashing success.

4

Kickstarter really is great.

5

Though I must say that of the four projects I've backed with my own hard cash that achieved their funding goals, I've only received one product to date — the G-Form Extreme Sleeve for iPad — but it was all that and more, even better than advertised.

7

But I'm hoping the other three will appear in my mailbox real soon now.

Chocolate Allen Wrench

B93d651fa6e14af98bcaa54e5c6a530e_820x615

From the website (literal Google Danish translation):

.......................

Yes, it is thus made ​​of chocolate!

In this case, the 58% dark chocolate with silver so as to look like metal.

The Allen key is thus particularly interesting for those who just can not stand rust.

Guaranteed stainless now and in eternity future — but it may melt and is not particularly modstandfygtig [sic] towards sweet tooth.

....................... 

kr 29,00.

Quirky — "Submit your genius product idea for only $10."

Screen Shot 2012-04-13 at 10.44.48 PM

From the website: "Submitting your product idea is the first step to becoming an inventor at Quirky. After you complete the submission process our community will voice their opinion. The top concepts are chosen every week. If your idea is chosen, you'll earn a perpetual royalty from us. Perpetual means forever."

Q. Why does it cost $10 to submit my idea?

A. Well, you've got to ante up to give your idea the fair shot it deserves. Best case scenario? Your $10 investment takes your idea from a tiny sketch to a professionally manufactured product, on shelves worldwide, earning you a heckuva lot more. Worst case? That 10 bucks get you detailed analytics on who liked and didn't like your idea, as well as extensive community feedback. You then have the option to resubmit your idea, or you can use the valuable market research data to make the thing on your own."

Couch Spray Paint — Recovering it is so last year

What took so long?

Simply-spray-fabric-paints

Wrote Sean Michael Ragan in a Make magazine issue 30 review, "Considering what a ridiculous idea upholstery spray paint is, this stuff works almost astoundingly well. The starting color of your furniture makes a difference. Over the dead-grass yellow of my secondhand armchairs. orange went on extremely well. Periwinkle blue didn't cover so well."

"When dry, the color is waterproof, odorless, and doesn't rub off or transfer under any conditions that I've discovered. Both chairs were a bit crunchy after application, but the crunch soon wears off without otherwise affecting the color. While I can't say I'd unequivocally recommend this product to everyone, it does work a heckuva lot better than I ever imagined, and it was a lot of fun to use."

Can't ask for much more than that, can we?

Colors below.
