I really wish Kickstarter would offer gift cards.
I have a huge obsession with creativity – and browsing Kickstarter fuels that craving. I am awed by the imagination of the inventors, and constantly berating myself for not coming up with any of these ideas.
So I do the next best thing.
I back them.
Because it takes imagination to recognize imagination, right? By throwing in my ten or twenty dollars I’m saying, “Well, I may not have dreamed up this awesome product, but at least I’m innovative enough to realize its cutting edge potential.”
Anyway, it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to see that Makey Makey Go is going to “go” far. Its predecessor, Makey Makey, was one of the 50 top-funded Kickstarter projects ever. I’ve mentioned Makey Makey on this blog several times, including recommending it as a great holiday gift. Jay Silver, the inventor of the original, is behind the new, portable version. You absolutely must see his suggestions for the many uses of Makey Makey Go, including several taking-selfies-in-odd-situations solutions.
I, of course, went with the $39 Pledge because:
1. You get a Bonus Tin
B. You get two Makey Makey Go Sticks – which means I can wear them as earrings.
Totally worth it.
