Kickstarter Finds

Recommended Posts

We've had a few threads on game related Kickstarters but I thought I'd make a general one for other things that are of interest.

 

I've been browsing recently for various gadgets, bags, watches, wallets and anything else I can find that might be interesting and new.

 

Unfortunately there isn't really an easy way of finding good Kickstarters other than to keep looking to see what new things are released. In a way its smart because it keeps you on and coming back to the site, but it is rather inefficient.

 

I thought I'd start this thread so that we can share interesting ones we might find and bring them to the attention of others as we're probably all into the gadgets, tech etc, stuff.

 

So without further ado, here is a bit of a mix to get us started. I can post more finds if people are interested.

 

Electric Objects: A Computer Made for Art

A new Kickstarter Star Trek is being made based on the 4 year Klingon War, pre Kirk.

 

Some big names in it. The guy in Enterprise reprising his role as the Vulcan Soval, the guy who played Martok from DS9. The guy who played Worfs brother (and the Candyman!), and the woman who played Colonel Tigh's wife in the new Battlestar Galactica. Also Apollo from the original BSG!
