Kickstarter is pretty well known and popular in germany and there are regular news about in all Media. The only Problem KS has here is that basicly nobody uses credit cards.^^ Same hear, absolut gar nix, because, hear in germany, there is kickstarter not that popular
Also i wants to save my Mony for the Pyra..
I was really excited for the CHIP when I first heard about it, but the amount that they wanted for shipping and the inability to buy multiple of just the boards (I didn't want any of the accessories, I just wanted a buttload of cheap, high powered ARM processors) quickly squashed that enthusiasm.
Didn't realise the Teensy was a KS project. I really should try and finish building my Teensy game controller at some point though.Exploding kittens shipped on time. Granted, with the $8.7 million they got, they certainly wouldn't have had an excuse if they were late.
Teensy 3.0 was only a late by a couple of weeks. I'm calling that "on time" by KS standards.
I'm sure there are others, but those are the only two that I backed that I received on (or near) schedule. I did get shipping confirmation for my alpha CHIP board, so that's on schedule so far. We'll see if the final production boards and accessories keep to schedule as well - they have until December for the first production batch, and until May for the accessories.
This would be great. I know several people, myself included, that would love for this to happen. Unfortunately I can't put any money toward it. I will try to pass this along to others.Well I set aside my issues with kickstarter to back this:
Bring Back MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000:
Some can tell I may be a fan of the show.
