Want to help fund a giant robot that can carry two passengers? How about a series of geeky, Japanese-style woodblocks, or a documentary about hiking the John Muir Trail? Or maybe you'd rather see an original comic from a writer who fleshed out both Venom and Iron Man? Check out these products and decide if any are worthy of your crowdfunding dollars.
Stompy: The Giant, Rideable Walking Robot: You know what the world needs more of? Giant robots. Stompy will be an 18-foot-wide, 4,000 pound hexapod with two seats for easy riding. Created by a team of professional roboticists, Stompy will be a symbol of robots as a simple and publicly accessible technology. There are rewards at lower (and higher levels), but for a $40 pledge, you'll receive a Robot Evolution supporter t-shirt, a wristband that reads "FRIEND OF ROBOTS - DO NOT TERMINATE," and a bumper sticker declaring "My Other Car Has 6 Legs."
Ukiyo-e Heroes Woodblock Prints: We've shown you some of Jed Henry's wonderful woodblock prints, rendering video game characters in the Japanese ukiyo-e style. Now he's looking to expand on that series with even more geeky joy. For a $10 pledge, you'll receive a coloring book PDF featuring all of the designs. For a $40 pledge, you'll receive a digital giclée print of your choice.
