circuits.io – Kickstarter-like electronics funding – @Raspberry_Pi robotic shield on launch!

Adafruit 792

circuits.io. The first project is a Raspberry Pi robotic shield by Francis wyffels. “Discover campaigns raising funds to get finished electronics product shipped to you or visit our shop of circuit boards and solder your own project.”

The Raspberry Pi robotic shield allows you to control a robot using a Raspberry Pi. It can drive two motors, two RC servos and can read 4 analog sensor values. This design will only be fabricated and shipped to you if it reaches its goal of $9,800.00 in pre-orders by December 28, 2012. You will not be charged if the goal is not reached.

This is interesting, Kickstarter is moving away from being “a store” while others are specifically becoming pre-order funding. The site uses credit cards only (not Amazon payments). We’re going to support this project and report back later!
