LIFX: Light Bulb Reinvented – plus huge kickstarter policy change!

Sent in by Khachik Mkrtchyan via twitter – and I have to agree, this might be a very interesting project for filmmakers and a cool light all by itself…

They're already at 10x their goal – having raised over $1.3 million! And, there are 53 days still left to go.

On an additional note… we've seen plenty of big ticket items and we've always been very cautious about funding some of the bigger items because these are obviously starter projects. What if they fail and don't finish the project or their idea just turns out to not be feasible and you've laid out thousands of dollars?

Well kickstarter has put in some new policies to try to curb excessive risk and you should read more about that in this story:
