Girls with Spotlights on Planet Nubia

THE GIRLS OF PLANET NUBIA

Major Tom needs $20,000 to shoot a short film. Basically, as far as I can tell, this is a film about a girl in a motercycle helmet pointing a spotlight at things, while the editor presses every single button on his video toaster.

Yea, I hear that movies about girls in motorcycle helmets do really well at Sundance.

In addition to the Kickstarter video, he’s also produced this teaser : (Click to download the .wmv file.)
Notice how you can still see the wrinkles in the green-screen. That’s some quality editing right there.

Watch your tail.

“Tailly”, the tail that wags when you get excited

This project needs £60,000 (About $95k) to build electronic tails for people to wear.

Sure, we’ve all wished that we had a long fluffy tail to let people around us know if we were excited or not, but evolution didn’t give us one! Now technology has solved that problem!

Fantastic! …but, where could I wear such a thing?

Yes, of course. Exactly what I need on a date is something that tells the world if my heart rate goes up.

Incidentally, it’s really only going to “Add a level of communication” if you and your date spend the evening staring at each others’ butts.

Who invented this crazy thing anyway?

Of course. Here he is wearing his other invention : Necomimi, the cat ears that move according to your brainwaves.

Subies : a “Roguelike” game for iOS.

SUBIES iOS/PC – “Attack The Depths”

I heartily recommend watching this video demo of a iPhone game. This may be the funniest video on all of Kickstarter.

“See, we relax sometimes because if shaking ship down hurts the fuel!”

Yes, of course it does.

Sadly, this is not a Kickstarter for a series of hilarious videos, they actually want us to buy this game!

Uh … yea … ok … wow.
This is like a carpenter telling you how excited he is about one day owning a hammer, because he doesn’t want to have to keep pounding the nails in with his forehead.

Wow, he totally filled in a government form and paid a $50 registration fee!

And to prove it, he showed us a photograph of his credit card!

Uh, dude, I can still make out the numbers.

FriendZone

Friendzone Tees

Sometimes, you’re friends with a girl for, like, a whole week, and she’s still not interested in sleeping with you!

I know! It’s like they don’t understand the only reason we’re friends with them is for sex!

Yea, that’ll do the trick.

Too bad his lady-friends aren’t interested in “Doing something”.

The Gamer Comedy that Rage-quits

Pwned! The Gamer Comedy that Gives
(AKA “Pwned! The Ultimate Geek Anthem Film”)

This man needs a mere $250,000 to film a Gamer Comedy. It’s a comedy film by gamers, for gamers!

It contains fresh new gags like this parody of the Star Wars opening scroll :

But this isn’t just a comedy, it also has an important message!

Oh boy. A parody of “gamer life” that also teaches us an important message about bullying.

When the internet didn’t immediately start throwing money at them for this obviously brilliant concept, they changed the name of their project from “The Ultimate Geek Anthem Film” to “The Gamer Comedy that Gives“, and explained that they would give 100% of their profits to charity, including …

When even this didn’t work, they did the only thing they could think of : RAGE-QUIT!

Don’t worry, they’ve relocated to IndieGoGo!
(By the way, that’s not a comb-over, his hair just does that.)

Futile Furry Fuel Fantasy

Furry Fuel!

Ok, apparently if you’re a furry you’re not content drinking a regular energy drink. (Not even a “Red Bull“?)


Ok, so essentially it’s just Soda pop, right?


The energy drink looks pretty normal besides the label (pictured above), but the project included this interesting “stretch goal”.




Let’s see how that turned out.

Suspended by Kickstarter? But Why?

For the answer to that question, let’s check out the list of Prohibited Kickstarter Projects :
