If you haven’t noticed, Kickstarter is kind of a big deal. Founded in 2008, the social fundraising site has helped thousands of inventors and entrepreneurs realize their dreams. In 2011, it helped raise nearly $100 million for over 27,000 projects. Out of that pot, 11,836 projects were able to get full funding. Just recently Kickstarter celebrated another milestone with two projects each raising $1 million. It’s become the defacto way for people to get their products financed without having to hit up VCs or ask their parents to mortgage their homes. And we couldn’t be happier. We’ve seen some amazing products come from Kickstarter, like the TouchFire iPad keyboard.
However, without our help, a lot of these projects wound’t see the light of day. That’s why we looked through the site and picked the 10 tech projects we feel deserve funding. If you’re looking for something to do with your tax refund, check it out.
