Wouldn’t the World be Better if…
Yesterday I talked about the projects that drew me to crowd funding, the somewhat-immediate gratification of people willing to give me exactly what I want was certainly nice. On the other side of the equation, though – there are projects that are awesome in their own right. Projects where the rewards for a backer aren’t anything I am particularly interested in, but the idea of it existing at all as fabulous, and worthwhile. Currently I am giving various amounts of money to people that want to:
- Perform research that will lead to a space elevator (pictured above.)
- Commercialize sensors that will make the every day objects in life smarter.
- Build an urban farm/revolutionize the supply chain.
- And bring the smart phones of the world one step closer to the tricorders we know they should be.
Are there any projects out there that excite you? Anything that sets your imagination ablaze?
