Twine gets half a million

Twine project blows by funding goals thanks to Kickstarter.

When Supermechanical turned toKickstarter to crowd source funding of its Internet of Things project, its cofounders were no doubt optimistic. But it’s questionable that even they would have believed that pledges amounting to nearly a half a million dollars — way more than 1,000 percent of the funding goal — would roll in with time to spare. But that’s what happened: as of 5:00 p.m. eastern time Jan. 2, some 3,548 people had pledged $497,939, with 20 hours to go before the deadline.

  1. Any tips on how they made the prototype in plastic? Maybe Adafruit should sell some of these rubber molding products?
