Digital Guitar funded through Kickstarter.com

My latest creative interest is Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

Thousands of creative projects are funding on Kickstarter at any given moment. Each project is independently created and crafted by the person behind it. The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control and responsibility over their projects. They spend weeks building their project pages, shooting their videos, and brainstorming what rewards to offer backers. When they're ready, creators launch their project and share it with their community.

Every project creator sets their project's funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing.

That's why it's very cool that there's "The Kickback Machine." Separate from Kickstarter.com, The Kickback Machine lets you research what worked and what failed on Kickstarter.com. By doing the research in advance of posting your idea on Kickstarter, you'll be able to get a feel for 1) if your idea will rock it out, or 2) drop like a rock.

And now a new site from an aspiring Miami-based programmer, Outgrow.me has emerged as the first marketplace for successfully-funded Kickstarter projects. Outgrow.me is a place to discover crowd-funded projects currently available for purchase.

So, if you have an idea for something and you think people are going to say, "Why didn't I think of that!?" then you have the path to follow.
