THE INTERNET WE LIVE IN
By now, anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows Kickstarter and similar crowdfunding sites have hosted some interesting campaigns (potato salad, largest dick drawing, etc.)
It’s also no secret that some of these than less stellar campaigns come with even less stellar homemade videos. For laughs, Betabeat has compiled a list of some of the worst.
With recent crowdfunding campaigns such as blowjob machines, potato salad and mystery products (recently revealed) making headlines, this latest Kickstarter is no shocker.
An unemployed recent college graduate by the name of Alex Wong is using his free time to “bring back the goals of [his] youth.” He’s crowdfunding the world’s largest dick drawing.
We’ll probably end up writing this post eight more times, because this smartwatch project on Kickstarter has already raised $3,521,979 (three million, five hundred twenty-one thousand, nine hundred and seventy-nine dollars) with 31 days (a whole freaking month) to go before time runs out. The startup is nearing its third birthday and recently hit a stretch of mega-hits, including the videogame Double Fine Adventure, which closed at $3,336,371, and the webcomic Order of the Stick, which closed at $1,254,120. Another video game, Wasteland 2, just closed at $2,933,252.
Now this crazy touchscreen smartwatch project, Pebble, is taking Kickstarter to the next level. It raised $1 million in 28 hours (Double Fine hit $1 million faster) and with so much time to go, it boggles our tiny little minds to think of what the final total might be. Especially with those eight more stories we’re going to write about it.
