Crowdfunding is great, and Kickstarter just works perfectly at it.
Today, I "backed" a project for a little over $100.
This project is "Ouya", a game console based on Android, focusing on making it easier for developers to produce games for the TV (as compared to how difficult it can be to see your game on the big 3 Nintendo/Xbox/Playstation), and on making it cheap for consumers, while very flexible (they encourage software/hardware hacking and… the fact that it runs Android means that you can do pretty much anything with it).
This kickstarter project was launched approximately 15 hours ago and it has already reached its 1 month target: $950,000. Within 24 hours, it will have reached the million.
EDIT : OK, Million reached already.
OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console
Cracking open the last closed platform: the TV. A beautiful, affordable console — built on Android, by the creator of Jambox.
