Successful tech- and web-based Kickstarter Projects

Successful tech- and web-based Kickstarter Projects
It's a really inspiring and fun task curating content on Kickstarter. It's difficult to concentrate on the topic at hand because you're bombarded with all kinds of ingenious inventions. If you have ever thought about putting a project on this platform you will be aware of the huge importance of visual presentation. There are some real superproductions, like CLANG, there are interesting inventions with mediocre presentations that don't achieve their aims and banal products that demonstrate excellent promotional creativity, like Freaker USA, which achieve great success. This selection is aimed mainly at web design and development projects and technological curiosities which have been successfully financed.
