This was a bit of a revelation for me — since I've grown to sort of naturally make the video game connection when thinking of Kickstarter — but the most overfunded Kickstarter is no longer Tim Schafer's Double Fine Adventure (which ended up raising over $3 million) it's a watch.
The Pebble watch is designed to connect via bluetooth to your smartphone and is infinitely customisable. It also looks cool. It has an incredible amount of interesting functions — it vibrates when your phone rings, can be used to control music, as a GPS thingy when cycling or jogging. You can even use it to predict range if you're playing golf.
Sounds interesting, right? Well, that's what everyone else thought, seemingly, since it has raised almost $5 million dollars, after asking for a relatively paltry $100,000.
Incredibly, it still has 30 days to go.
The Kickstarter blog also has a really cool feature which discusses all the other overfunded projects in Kickstarter history. The variety is truly incredible.
