Drop Kicker – taking a long hard look at Kickstarter and other crowdfunding projects

dropkicker

There’s no doubt that crowdfunding is hot hot hot, but unfortunately the success of sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo has brought with it a fair amount of dodgy people peddling projects which may not actually be as great as they seem.

Drop Kicker is a blog which focuses on evaluating the technology and feasibility of some of these projects, in a hard headed way. It’s written by engineers with experience in the field, and while some of the posts are brutally honest, it’s still a great resource if you’re interested in learning more about some of the project claims you see in those fancy videos.

Take a look at today’s BBC report for examples of the type of products and projects we mean.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?
