Last April the gadget blogs blew up with news that the Pebble smart watch had appeared on the crowd funding website Kickstarter. I, like many others, was pretty excited by the concept of a smart watch.
I’d previously backed a couple of projects on Kickstarter, the poster child of the crowd funding boom, but the prospect of pledging $130 on a product that was still in development was daunting. However, in the short time following the project appearing on the site the take-up was nothing short of phenomenal.
Wrote a wee something for the company blog.
