    They are doing very well, as I write this they have raised nearly $800K for a $100K goal.

    I have bought a few things from Kickstarter, all the good ones go w-a-y past their initial target. It's a very exciting way to get into a new product and helps launch new suppliers. My (nerdy) favourite was the Fibonacci Clock which looks great on my office desk!

    The only potential downside is when an idea goes gang-busters and they take a LONG time to fill the orders. Doesn't mean it's not worth backing, but something to be aware of.

    very interesting - I would be interested in having one but would need to buy a camera to use it (unless of course I could use it with film cameras)

    Well, it looks like it'll be available in Canon and Nikon mounts at the very least and maybe Fuji X and micro four thirds.

    they have sold many of these freaking things that if anyone hasn't signed up for one yet, they should wait until the used market is flooded with them

    I'll have to buy a top hat and a pair of brass googles to wear when using it.
