How to get the touchscreen Retina MacBook Pro of your dreams

Apple has never been all that keen on the idea of releasing a MacBook with a touchscreen, even if it has been toying with the idea of releasing a larger “iPad Pro.” Just because Apple isn’t going to release a touchscreen MacBook, however, doesn’t mean that a bold entrepreneur on Kickstarter won’t give it a shot. A new Kickstarter projected called Modbook Pro X is trying to raise $150,000 to build a massive MacBook-tablet hybrid that even utilizes one of Steve Jobs’ most hated accessories — the stylus.

What if you could play a first-person shooter in real life?

Those gamers who no longer find first-person shooters amusing enough should check out a new Kickstarter  project that wants to offer players a “real-life in-person combat shooter and horror survival experience.” In other words, players get real weapons and combat gear, and experience real combat and pain. Blood, Guts ‘n Glory (BGnG) is an event that will take place in Atlanta Georgia this October, assuming the project is fully funded. The project places teams of players into realistic combat scenarios where they’ll have to fight zombies and mutants or battle insurgents and other special forces. More →

Kickstarter is being flooded with Potato Salad knockoffs

When we first brought you word about the amazing Potato Salad Kickstarter project last week, it had only raised $300. Less than a week later, we see that Potato Salad has now raised a mind-melting $36,000 — and it still has 25 more days to go. Unsurprisingly, the freakish success of Potato Salad has led to a slew of knockoff projects that are looking to capitalize on the success of what might be the most profitable Internet joke in world history.

FCC Internet Fast Lanes Plan

The clearest and simplest explanation yet for why Internet ‘fast lanes’ are a terrible idea

The clearest and simplest explanation yet for why Internet ‘fast lanes’ are a terrible idea

We’ve heard a lot of good reasons to oppose the Federal Communications Commission’s plan to allow for the creation of Internet “fast lanes.” However, the best one we’ve seen so far might be from Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler, who has written an op-ed for The Washington Post in which he explains why any plan that lets ISPs charge more in exchange for traffic prioritization should be a nonstarter.

Help this man fund his dream of making a potato salad for $10

There’s something to be said for having obtainable goals. Kickstarter is infamous for its failed projects, instances where creators were too ambitious, too deceitful or too lazy to follow through, but if you’d like to help support a sure thing, Zack Danger Brown is currently trying to raise $10 to make a potato salad. He hasn’t decided what kind yet, but the campaign has already crossed $300, prompting Brown to create a few stretch goals. More →

Kickstarter suspends apparent scammers before they fled with $550,000

The iFind Kickstarter campaign that many publications questioned earlier this week, believing it’s nothing more than a scam meant to steal money from unsuspecting backers, has been officially suspended, The Register reports. WeTag, the makers of iFind who were seeking $25,000 in funding, would have gotten access to over $546,000 in pledges in just a few days. Despite the questions raised on Kickstarter about the product, which were picked up by various publications, WeTag managed to raise even more money as it was criticized for the way it handled the matter.

Kickstarter: WeTag iFind Scam

Too good to be true? Battery-free gadget may be a wild $500,000 Kickstarter scam

Too good to be true? Battery-free gadget may be a wild $500,000 Kickstarter scam

iFind, dubbed “the world’s first battery-free item locating tag,” may be one of the coolest Kickstarter projects yet, having already hit over $520,000 in pledges – more than 20 times its initial goal – but it also may be a huge scam. iFind is a tiny device that’s supposed to be used with a smartphone app to quickly locate lost items. While this isn’t a new idea, WeTag says it can do it without the use of a battery. And that’s the crucial detail that causes concern. More →
