Join us for RISE in Hong Kong next summer. Register for two half-price tickets.
In less than than two weeks, we’re welcoming Kickstarter Co-Founder and CEO Yancey Strickler to our European event Web Summit.
We figured we’d take a look at some of Kickstarter’s Hong Kong success stories – guys whose ideas really took off.
Pens that print 3D, phone chargers you’ll never be without and shutters helping us take better selfies – here are three HK Kickstarters that caught the public’s imagination:
Over 6,000 backers pledged $372,039 to help Native Union bring their JUMP Cable to life.
It’s a phone charger that includes a pocket-sized battery pack you can disconnect and carry around after charging your phone. The pack weighs less than two AA batteries and provides over three hours extra talk time.
Having raised over ten times their Kickstarter target, Native Union brought the JUMP Cable to market last summer for $49.99.
After they raised $1,552,256 on Kickstarter, 3Doodler brought us 3Doodler 2.0 – the world’s first 3D printing pen, reinvented.
It’s a slimmer, lighter, quieter and even easier to use than the first 3Doodler – the first pen of its kind. The pen that put the power of 3D printing in the palm of the people.
Version 2.0 went on sale this summer after 3Doodler’s successful crowdfunding campaign.
