This Indoor Garden Will Feed You Greens Year-Round

Click & Grow 25 is the latest project by former orchestra conductor Mattias Lepp who felt that the idea of indoor gardens—essentially, a farmer’s market in a box—would be just the tool for staving off future food shortages. His company, founded in 2018, raised $11 million to develop new materials and hardware…Read more...

Why You Should Use a Physical Key to Sign Into Your Accounts

The benefits of two-factor authentication (2FA) are clear: A person trying to get into your accounts will need something else besides your username and password, which makes it more difficult to hack you. That something else is often a code sent via SMS or through an app, but there’s another option: a physical…Read more...

Funding Friday: Beach Lovers: A NYC Summer Love Story

One of the many things I love about Kickstarter is when a friend backs a project, I am alerted. My friend Kirk went on a binge yesterday and backed a half dozen photo book projects and I followed him on that binge. I thought I’d blog about one of the projects we backed today. NYC is many things, and one of them is a beach town. In the summer, the beaches of south Brooklyn and Queens (Rockaway) fill up with NYers of all ages and ethnicities. It is like the subway, a total melting pot. Th...

Hacking my way into analytics: A creative’s journey to design with data

Sydney Anh Mai Contributor Sydney Anh Mai is an award-winning product designer at Kickstarter. Her work has appeared on The Verge, Design Weekly and Core 77. Growing up, did you ever wonder how many chairs you’d have to stack to reach the sky? No? I guess that’s just me then. As a child, I always asked a lot of “how many/much” questions. Some were legitimate (“How much is 1 USD in VND?”); some were absurd (“How tall is the sky and can it be measured in chairs?”...

You Can Finally Buy the Flatcat That Looks Like Someone Turned Roadkill Into a Robotic Pet

Does a robotic pet have to look and behave exactly like a real dog or cat to entice its owners to interact with it? With the Aibo Sony seems to think so, but the creators of the flatcat disagree. First revealed a couple of months ago, the robotic roadkill is finally available for sale through Kickstarter, but like any…Read more...

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back on Kickstarter

I never got around to watching the latest iteration of MST3K on Netflix, but I have fond memories of the original, insanely low-budget series and subsequent film. In 2019, Netflix, as Netflix does to so many of the projects they air, kicked MST3k to the curb. — Read the rest

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Kickstarter Campaign Returns to Fund New Episodes and Virtual Theater

In 2015, Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson launched a Kickstater campaign to bring back MST3K – and broke records in the process. The campaign resulted in the highest amount ever raised for a video project on Kickstarter, and Netflix eventually came in and picked up the revival. Netflix brought the series back for two new seasons, but like the other versions of the show before it, the Netflix MST3K was canceled. Now, Hodgson wants to try this again, so he’s launching a new Kicks...
