    Well I'm slightly hooked on kickstarter now I visit it several times a day to see what new cool projects have been created

    So far as well as backing the pebble I have also backed:

    OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console by OUYA — Kickstarter
    &
    Digispark - The tiny, Arduino enabled, usb dev board! by Erik Kettenburg — Kickstarter

    Currently thinking about backing this one as well:

    iControlPad 2 - The open source controller by Product 3 LLC — Kickstarter
    @SimpleSi works with the Pi as well

    Oh Damn I liked the look of the Digispark!

    I love kickstarter shame it is only for US citizens at the moment, hopefully they will let the UK enter some projects soon...

    I have backed the Pebble, hopefully recieving at the end of this month and also Teensy 3.0 which looks pretty cool.

    it does start to get a little addictive

    Interesting?...

    To be eligible to start a Kickstarter project, you need to satisfy the requirements of Amazon Payments:

    —You are 18 years of age or older.
    —You are a permanent US resident with a Social Security Number (or EIN).
    —You have a US address, US bank account, and US state-issued ID (driver’s license).
    —You have a major US credit or debit card.
    Maybe they have family in the US

    I have been thinking about backing this as well to be honest, they are very similar I think galago has a better processor, Not too sure if galago can Replicate a HID though?

    Bonus for me is you can use the Arduino IDE with teensy, oh who am I kidding I want them all, my names Ian and im a microcontroller addict, phew that feels better ;-) (off to buy a galago)

    The LIFX WiFi light bulb looks cool...

    www.kickstarter.com/projects/limemouse/lifx-the-light-bulb-reinvented

    LIFX is the smartest light bulb you've ever experienced. It's a wifi-enabled, energy efficient, multi-colored bulb that you control with your iPhone or Android. LIFX gives you unprecedented control of your lights, reduces your energy costs, lasts up to 25 years and delivers an amazing range of experiences we think you’ll love.
    I wonder if the iPhone and Android apps will be available for 25 years though?

  12. Thanks to Arthur from:

    Maybe a good use for all those cheap 30 pin ipod docks that will be available once manafacturers start making new ones:

    auris: Bluetooth® for your Dock by Touchkraft LLC — Kickstarter

    Wifi enabled light bulb that is cool having total control over your lighting but not by expensive retrofits to the wiring etc... just change the bulb for a smart one.

    I think I'll wait for it to go mainstream and come down in price though.
