Tech gadgets come and go. They come in different shapes and sizes with varying functions. But one thing’s for sure, developers from all over the world will continue to create them moving forward in an effort to meet people’s needs.
The reality is that not all developers of tech gadgets and software applications have the budget to pursue their projects. The good news is that those who lack funds can turn to the largest crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to get their needed financial support.
Kickstarter has successfully funded some 1,063 technology projects. Most of them raised from $1,000 to less than $10,000 while 11 projects were able to raise more than $1 million.
