12 things we hope get funded on Kickstarter


Koduko Origins

This comic book project is set on a horror island of solitude, billed as "Lovecraftian inspired by Japanese folklore."


Barobot holds 12 full-sized bottles and knows 1,000 recipes. So you can tend the party, instead of remembering what’s in a Negroni sbagliato.


For just $12, iCorners give your iPad minimalist protection with tough, clear polycarbonate.

Punk Pizza Tee

We gave up on T-shirts expressing our inner soul. Until we saw this project from freelance photog George Powell.

Mission Denim

Back the blues from Mission Denim and get premium, built-to-last dungarees that will be on heavy rotation in your wardrobe.

Mixed Animals

Mixed Animals are sort of Mr. Potato Head 2.0. These super softies come with magnetic interchangeable parts. Making your dreams of an elephant demon come true.


We’re already breaking out the popcorn for this movie, an "electric fairytale" that follows a day in the life of street hooker Stereo, lo-fi cowboy Analog and a wordless drifter.


Bikers Against Child Abuse

Probably the only redeeming thing about Bad Grandpa was the scene with Bikers Against Child Abuse. This photo project documents the faces behind the organization.

You Are Here - Coast to Coast

This project combines our love of old maps and urban icons. Starts with Portland, Oregon, with plans to spread from sea to shining sea.

Cyanotype photography

Send photographer Ben Panter to Toronto and he’ll produce some of these cool cyanotype pieces. Kick in just $25 for a print.

Castor double-flavored toothpicks

Now you can get the grit out with Castor, a line of toothpicks that comes in dueling flavors like Habanero & Honey, Bacon & Maple and Raspberry & Wasabi. Classy.


Love these stylish modular solutions for your ever-changing work space: You can turn these into desk risers, shelves and stools.

As warmer weather hits even San Francisco, we’re pooling our beer money for a robot bartender. And some wasabi-flavored toothpicks. Our ever-expanding crew could use some of these modular Modos bookshelves and stools, too. There are so many things on Kickstarter that we want — jeans, maps, comic books — that we’re sharing our wish list with you.

Even cranky futurist Jaron Lanier supports Kickstarter — it “turns consumers into a priori funders of innovation” and we’re pretty sure that translates into robotic cocktails for everyone.
