1. 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.

  2. ten bucks for a bar of “design-driven, soy-free, all natural luxury” vegan soap. of course it’s over halfway to being funded after only three days

  3. Oh, cause they had a line of simulator games and they made Goat Simulator and some funny guy made Rock Simulator and now this ha ha sick. Very cool and funny.

  4. 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

    god damn, finally someone has delivered the goods: crowdfunded pie fetish erotica!!

    pornography is one of kickstarter’s expressly prohibited items, but from a quick glance at the company’s website, it doesn’t look like their actors ever actually get naked. will the project be allowed to continue, or will it be pulled?? i’ll be keeping a close eye… or should i say a close “pie”… on this one

    Better question: why isn’t there a pornography crowdfunding platform yet.

    there is one; it’s called offbeatr (which is actually probably where this project belongs)

  9. this might also be a good time to remind everyone that while potato salad is now over $45k, our buddies were unable to raise so much as a few hundred on indiegogo to pour dom p into some diapers and then drink the champagne out of those diapers. shameful

     

  10. this article is featured on the kickstarter front page right now for some reason. some nerd wrote a 3500+ word article, and that is at least 3000 words more than i ever plan on reading about kickstarter wallets for the rest of my lifetime

     
  11. I am a mother of an 11 year old.  Going shopping with her in the mall has been horrifying since she turned 9 and wanted to wear “teen” clothing.  Shorts that showed off her butt, shirts that were so short they showed off both her chest and belly button.  She would need to buy a shirt two sizes too big to get the length that was appropriate, then the collar was huge.  I couldn’t take it anymore!  I created a clothing line that is modern in style but more modest.  The tops are all soft cotton and longer in length.  There is a length option not just a size option.  You can get a small-regular, long or extra long.  The shorts have the same options along with a zip on/off option for growth.  Kids love the colors and stylish designs where moms love keeping their girls modest.  It is a win-win! 

    Risks and challenges

    the challenge is to stay trendy while maintaining the modest look.

    this description, plus the above incredibly blurry photo of a chuck taylor sneaker and a ballet shoe, is all we have to go on that these shirts are worth $25. godspeed, lady

  12. hcandersen said: Kickstarter also has a monetary interest in letting as many projects as possible through, because they take 5% of all the money that comes in through successful projects with none of the responsibility for the fulfillment of those projects. That's a lot of money considering their operating expenses are, let's be honest, pretty negligible.

    exactly

     

  13. Anonymous said: Do you ever think Kickstarter will get quality control?

    No. Kickstarter is kind of like reddit in its belief that allowing literally everything in, as long as it does not infringe copyright or break the law, will naturally lead to the best content floating to the top. This obviously is not the case (see potato salad and the hundreds of wallets over the years for proof), but because Kickstarter is not legally on the hook for any promised rewards, it doesn’t matter to them.

    A more elitist version of Kickstarter that strictly curated great (or at least great-sounding) projects and actually penalized those projects that don’t follow up might be able to develop more cachet and perhaps take a larger cut off the top of each project’s funding. It might also be more sustainable. But it wouldn’t be nearly as profitable.

    Hmm.. I don’t think so. I really dont see that happening. But you never knowI suppose anything is possible.
