Have you guys heard? They now have a heated jackets? Wow, it is amazing how someone comes up with this stuff. It even charges your smart phone! What? This is insane! Kickstarter is the best place for all the new stuff! NOT!
I am not knocking this guys heated jacket, but c’mon. Milwaukee has had their heated gear out for years and yes it charges phones. These guys on Kickstarter call it the worlds first heated “DOWN” jacket. They wanted $100k and have over a half a million dollars already. What the heck is going on with Kickstarter, do people who back these projects live in a bubble? The only new thing I see they added is heated gloves which is cool, but they do not capitalize on that feature.
Kickstarter just doesn’t make sense to me anymore. Remember the Knife Edge bit guy who claims to have invented a better Phillips bit that costs an astronomical amount of money. His videos were terrible and did not properly demonstrate the product, yet he gets over funded? Check out the Knife Edge over at the Tool Guyd.
Then you have the Cole Bar Hammer which looked awesome, but in the end failed and couldn’t be produced. The guy even wrote how it wouldn’t be produced, yet he is still taking pre-orders on his website? What happened to all that money?
