5 kickstarter projects for the crazy person in you
I love Kickstarter. It promotes creativity and brings to the world revolutionary products that otherwise would never see the light of day.
Take for example Occulus Rift; a hugely successful VR head mounted display that took the world by storm and kickstarted (yeah…) the current VR fascination. Well, this post is not about those products. Instead it’s about things like…
Titanoboa: 50 ft electromechanical serpent
Product description: “Titanoboa is a fully articulated 50ft electro-mechanical snake that will be wreaking havoc in the desert this summer.”
What’s more awesome than an electro-mechanical snake? 50 FEET OF IT.
Product description: “Bacon is awesome. Crystal Bacon is awesomer. It is my sculptural tribute to the most delicious of all meats, bacon.”
Yeap, it’s a crystal clear sculpture of a strip of bacon you can proudly display in your living room. You know, next to the marble steak.
Product description: “Fighting Man Frying Pans! Epic kitchenware to make your meals legendary!”
I feel a bit underwhelmed. It’s about frying pans with the handle modelled like the handle of swords. Everyone knows that cooking is dangerous. How am I supposed to cope without a blade?
Product description: “We love meat and we love soap. We want to change your mind about what “clean” means by producing our collection of meat-scented soaps!”
Have you ever dreamt going out of the shower smelling as fresh as bacon? No? Ok then.
Product description: “Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.”
This is perhaps the most famous of them all, and… yeap. That’s it. Just a guy making a potato salad. And he has gathered $61,286 as of now. So the joke is on us? I really can’t tell anymore…
