That said, it seems like they already have production figured out, all the research done, etc. Why not just sell the product, instead of running a Kickstarter campaign? Is this just functioning as a pre-order, so they can make a big batch of them?
"If we raise $25,000 then we can do a large first run, which brings the retail cost down significantly, so that we can sell the kit to you for $35 (including shipping)."
I assume a lot of the Kickstarter projects (certainly most hardware ones) are exactly that.
I remember using it a few years ago and it seemed pretty buggy (though maybe it was just my low quality webcam). This seems like it has a lot more potential.
Thank you for making the world a bit more interesting :)
Will it be possible to modify this to work with other OS's such as BSD, GNU/Linux, Solaris, etc.?
Looks like a fun way to make familiar, intuitive controls for your friends.
