Robot Kickstarter Project Paints Using Watercolors & Teaches STEM Principles

Super Awesome Sylvia, along with Windell and Lenore from Evil Mad Scientist, are teaming up to bring a watercolor painting robot to Kickstarter. With two motors driving cables to move the head in the x and y directions, the WaterColorBot uses standard watercolor paint and paper to create 9″ x 12″ works of art. This Kickstarter campaign will fund the initial production run of the bots and hopefully give the project worldwide exposure. The robot is already fully developed and has been shown off at Maker Faire.  It also won a silver…

New Crowdfunding Film Society bolsters aspiring filmmakers

So you’re all excited about crowdfunding your first/dream/calling-card film project via Kickstarter or IndieGoGo. But you’re not Zach Braff, and you’re definitely not “Veronica Mars.” In fact, once you’ve reached out to all the friends, relatives and colleagues willing to donate some bucks, how on earth are you going to reach and impress the total strangers you might need to make your goal amount (and if you don’t, in most cases, you’ll never see a cent) in the allotted campaign period?

Double Fine Misadventure: First Major Kickstarter Game Hits A Snag

Tim Schafer writes candidly about his game ‘Broken Age’ running out of money, but this is just the nature of the beast. Once upon a time, there was a website designed to crowdfund small, creative projects—a garage band’s new self-recorded album; a short film; a dance video. That website was called Kickstarter. Then, along came Tim Schafer and Double Fine Adventure, the video game now known as Broken Age, which transformed the site into an indie video game crowdfunding platform overnight. Kickstarter termed it the “Blockbuster Effect.” Well, not just a video…

Video game maker successfully crowdfunds over $10 million for project

Video game maker successfully crowdfunds over $10 million for project

Chris Roberts is feeling good. He has persuaded over 150,000 people to kick-in $10 million for a product that doesn’t exist and won’t be completed until the end of 2014. But it’s not the pile of cash that’s lighting him up, not even the opportunity to roll out the game’s full feature-set way earlier than previously budgeted, it’s the vindication this public investment represents.
