Last week kickstarter.com broke more records when they had two projects break the $1,000,000 mark in one day.
As you probably know if you read this blog much, Kickstarter is a website that promotes entrepreneurs and gives them avenues to get their great ideas and designs funded by users rather than venture capitalists. There is a good article at Gigaom about their record breaking days.
However, what I wanted to share with you today was a link and a video about one of the recording breaking projects.
I think the video explains it all, but I as an aside I would note that the Elevation Dock projects funding goal was $75,000. Currently they have reached just over 1.4 million in pledges from individuals wanting to buy one or two docks.
Who says good ideas go unnoticed? I think the new "social" internet and sites like Kickstarter are phenomenal in that we are starting to see some delivery on the promise of the Internet's ability to level the playing field and give the "little guy" a fighting chance. Case in point... this guy just out designed Apple, has raised almost 1.5 million dollars from about 13,000 individuals, and has been featured all over the internet including a story by NPR on All Things Considered.
Take a look at the video about his product and then try to stop yourself from ordering one ;-)
