Ever want to chuck your GoPro to get good aerial shots but don't have the right foam padding not to break it? Enter AER.
Their new invention--basically a giant Nerf arrow around a GoPro--makes it possible.
The videos sound like they wouldn't be worth seeing, but are surprisingly action-packed little bits of fun. I especially like the parts where it looks like you'll run smack into someone at the end of each one:
The creators of the Fidget Cube, Matthew and Mark McLachlan, have figured out the ONE niche that hadn't yet been met in society: fixing anxious people. The Fidget Cube Kickstarter project is meant to help put errant fingers to work--
Their initial goal was $15,000, but as of press time they had raised OVER $4.2 MILLION:
They describe the cube (which is basically just something to do with your fingers if you like to click pens/bite your fingernails/etc), as:
So let's all put our heads together and figure out the next way to take money from anxious people... ideas anyone?
If you love memes and you love those Apples to Apples clone style card games (think Cards Against Humanity etc) then you're in luck! This new card game takes prewritten text and matches it up with a host of popular meme pictures in a similar style. It's already met $166,108 of it's original $10,000 goal with 13 days to go so this product is obviously in high demand. Can't argue with cash.
The Lammily doll has become popular for being the first "normal Barbie". The design has been praised for providing an alternative doll with a healthier perspective on beauty which seems to have started a trend.
Now the creator of the Lammily doll hopes to recreate that success with a boy version of the doll. He's created a crowdfunding campaign on Tilt to get enough backing to make the manufacturer's minimum order for this first run of dolls.
So far there have been four episodes released since the first one in 2005. The most recent was published in 2012. Now the creator of Charlie the Unicorn is hoping to make a spectacular, 30-minute long finale.
It's going to be ridiculous, and musical, and extremely complicated to animate. Maybe not for Pixar, with their supercomputers and fur physics and blood pact with Yuroth, but complicated for me at least.
According to Know Your Meme, $52,000 of the $35,000 goal was funded in the first 24 hours.
The project is currently funded at $70,575 with 27 days to go. While stretch goals weren't really something he considered, he did suggest that, "If this raises just an absurd amount of money I'll attempt to hire Aubrey Plaza to play every single character and release an Aubrey Plaza edition."
The gameplay looks similar to 'Apples to Apples' or 'Cards Against Humanity'. Players start a comic and the judge picks the winner who had the best punchline. The base game will include 250 cards but they've added a list of tasks for fans to complete to help them meet a stretch goal that will add 30 more cards to every deck.
So far they have met $635,555 of their $10,000 goal. They've already included a 10 card booster pack to every reward and with 27 days to go, the extra stretch goal doesn't seem unrealistic.
