Everything about the project screams troll, especially how his video is Too Perfectly awkward, complete with Cat intruding, and even the guy's mother walking around in the background, it's just too perfect. However submitting the same project three times is taking the joke a bit far, unless after that potato salad KS, he's actually hoping to get some cash out of it. As one would expect with a scam, the goal has been decreasing each time he submits.

    He’s either Chris-chan but with computers instead of sonic recolors or he’s a brilliant actor. Either way I love him

    I don’t mean it in a bad way. I appreciate whatever is happening in his brain and I want him to get the money so I can buy the cyber computer

    Are you sure? Seems like a lot of effort for the guy to grow out a long stringy mullet and practice emulating the speech patterns and body language of an insane person to make a fake kickstarter for a few people to laugh at

     
  4. Please watch the video. This guy is like a cross between Chris-chan and Ulillillia. Give him the money too. Help him bring his dreams to life

    the cybermatrix 100 has the ability to make games, movies and music in cyberspace, and has the main console, the rom attatchment, the cyberportal, cyberbooth, cyber controller, for navigating the explorer of the cyber os, cyberstove, galaxy attachment [for making your own devices], and has 2 cyberterminals: the private cyberterminal [for games], and the public cyberterminal [for socialization]. you can make these medias using the cyber os proprietary engine. it also will come with 2 proprietary games: cybermatrix underground, and cybermatrix sports.

  6. Anonymous said: I got a question about potato salad guy. He said he could not donate the extra money due to kickstarter's policies, but couldn't he have added a stretch goal stating 'such and such money will go to charity x' at some point after the thing ballooned out of control but before it ended?

    Nope. Kickstarter rules expressly prohibit fundraising for charity and financial incentives. A stretch goal to donate extra money to charity, or a reward tier that involved part of your money going to charity, would be no effectively different from just straight up asking for that money from the get-go.

    It’s going to be interesting to see how he follows through after the thing ends. I’m hoping he just takes the money and runs.

  10. on failing to pass a basic improv class, most folks would probably re-assess themselves and realize that comedy might not be for them. others go to kickstarter to beg for money so they can repeat their failure on someone else’s dime. good shit

  12. I love products that solve a problem that doesn’t really exist. 

    The StackUp is an unique easy to use plastic stand for presenting preformed potato chips.

    For those times when you’re eating greasy ass potato chips out of a tube but you want to class it up a little.

  15. occasionally people try to use private messages to solicit plugs from us for their shitty kickstarters. unfortunately for the guy who submitted this indiegogo, i am a headphone enthusiast and almost bought a pair of sennheiser momentums a couple months ago. poorly photoshopping out the sennheiser logo on the earcup and “momentum” label on the headband won’t change an instantly recognizable headphone design. better luck next time, nerd
