    I'm a big fan of crowdfunding. I find it fascinating going to Indiegogo and Kickstarter and Unbound to see what's out there. I'm not a very moneyed person, so I have to pick and choose a lot, but I love "window shopping". So, I was thinking, it could be nice to have a thread in which to discuss the projects that excite us, yes? I apologise if this thread exists somewhere in the bowels of WC, but I have not seen one.

    This first one, The Pebble, is one that really doesn't need the extra attention, but I find it terribly exciting as I've been wanting a watch like this since... well, since smartphones first arrived on the scene. It's also looking like it might completely demolish the record set by Double Fine.

    The second I'm going to link to is CraftStudio, for all those Minecrafters up in the place.

    I'm still not sure I'm going to support either of them. The Pebble is an example of a product I have actually been waiting for someone to make and I actively really really want it. CraftStudio is a game I wish I had ten-fifteen years ago. I probably wouldn't use it much now, but I would still love to fund it and play with it.

    The Littlest Black Book is just Adorkable (if a little silly. and I don't have a nano).

    So... Any projects you like that are struggling to find backing? Do you HAVE a project trying to find backers? Any that excite you? Anything to say about the ones I've linked? There are tons more fun projects, but I figured I'd just stick to a few.
