Mike Elgan added this to Fund Your Home Product Idea With Kickstarter
Here's a great idea: an alarm clock that works like a toaster (your iPhone is like the toast). You set the alarm on the phone as you normally would, insert the phone into the "toaster," and press down. When it's time to get up, the phone pops up and the alarm goes off. It's not rocket science, just an appealing and completely original idea. Here's a wonderful idea: a coat rack with a round minicubby for putting wallet, keys, sunglasses or whatever. It keeps a person's random stuff with the coat. You may have seen this successful project here on Houzz, but it started as a Kickstarter project. And here's a timely idea: a low-cost, environmentally friendly wall clock made of recycled chipboard. Each of these ideas is somebody's dream made real by crowd-sourced investment. And each of them is seeking to make fresh new products that you can buy for your own home. Kickstarter is an underappreciated resource for making home design dreams a reality. It's a great place to find truly innovative, original and beautiful items for your home. And it's an even better place to turn your home design ideas into a business.
