Check out the fumeFan - launched on Kickstarter. Link: http://kck.st/1htevVX

So you use your soldering iron at your place all the time? The fumeFan can make your life a lot easier. This is a soldering fume extractor, work lamp, and PCB holder. It absorbs fumes from the soldering and also provides you with a LED light for your work. The fan has a variable speed, so you can slow it down when you can’t handle the noise. The fumeFan is USB or 12V DC powered.

The fumeFan comes in four different models, so you can pick the one that offers features that are right for you. Like it? Please support it on Kickstarter.

Thank you so much for this amazing resource. We have just went live on KickStarter with the first universal 3d printer cabinet...no more warped prints, accidental bumps or people messing with your work. Big enough to store a printer and your supplies. Available in three great finishes!!! Thank You So Much!

Hi -- I have my claw machine picker-upper project on kickstarter. My long term goal is to do an awesome giant claw machine kickstarter -- but it is not there yet. This is a step along the way.

I would really like to get input from instructables users!

Thanks!

Hi,
My name is Ben Rothschild, I am a high school senior and I love to build electronics! I recently built a shield (PCB) to program ATtiny chips with either an Arduino Board or AVR Programmer.  I have started a Kickstarter that is now live: 

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/attinyprogram/chipper-the-attiny-programming-and-prototyping-shi

I have also put together an Instructables to explain the shield:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Chipper-Board-ATtiny-Programming-Shield/

Any support or publicity that you can give the Kickstarter would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Ben

Hi,

My name is Cindy Ng, and I wanted to share my latest Kickstarter project "Dream Car" - a minimal, sustainable and collectible toy for playful kids and adults. Here's the link:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cindyng/dream-car-0

Start building your own dream car with the interchangeable car bodies, patented magnetic snaps and chalkboard painted surface. Handcrafted from natural walnut, beech and poplar wood, not only is the heirloom quality passed on from generation to generation, but more importantly, the story is also passed on.

Please help spread the word if you like this project! I really appreciate it!

Cheers,
Cindy

Blinky Fish -

Hi, I just launched this instructable as a kickstarter project.  It is a little board, shaped like a fish, that goes on an Arduino.  It is for learning -  blink the lights, push the button!

Thanks!!

It's up! Good luck.
YaY - thanks!
I got some great advice from an instructables member -- I have now been able to off 3 of these in one kit. THANKS!
kazmataz (author)  marc.cryan1 year ago
That's fantastic! Did they find you through this page?
The comment was pretty much -- "get a better price for your circuit boards" (there were curse words so I think it got filtered out)

The manufacturer will very likely be https://www.goldphoenixpcb.com/ -- it is a Chinese company but I think I have been talking to an engineer in Canada.

This is the shop used by BatchPCB.com -- which is a service from SparkFun that combines small orders for better prices.
Yup - instructables is great!

Hey,

  My name is Constance Kang. I am an inspirational designer from New York and the funder of MOÉ by KANG. (And also a fan + reader of your site). We are running a creative, unique project on kickstarter-- MOÉ by KANG:Revolution for humans and pets, made in NYC -- it is a challenging fashion project that will change the way people view fashion, pets, and lifestyle.

  We want to create some positive impacts, and we think this project is something that you and your readers would appreciate. Check it out if you have a second and please let me know what you think.

I hope you can join the journey with me,

Hey Instructables!

Check out my Kickstarter for a new interactive DIY web show called "The New How-To" where people send in ideas and have them made by me in comedic fashion. Also robots. I've been a long time member and would love to have the support of the community. Thanks for always being a major source of inspiration!

Hi There! I have launched a Kickstarter to fund a woodworking webseries that is both informational and hilarious. It's called "Would You Woodwork?" I'd love it if instructables could help me promote it. I have published a few 'ibles and have enjoyed everyone's support and enthusiasm. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Hi! This is amazing considering I have only 1/70th of my project funding. Here is my project link http://www.indiegogo.com/PDCC/x/2011763 . My project would start a reality show where there was a competition of children, trying to create projects, and 3D printing them . They would then assemble them and sell them, who ever has the most eBay sales wins.

My project is doing well and I have instructables to thank! It came to life because I wanted to enter a couple contests (pocket sized contest & design contest). Thank you Instructables for inspiring folks to create outside of their box. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/699604098/fish-bone-knotless-gear-tie
Hello, Mrballeng! I saw your project last week. It´s a simple and functional artifact, like a clip. Congratulations! Did you spent much time and money developing the project?
Marhaba! The lovely Nicole sent me this way to ask you wonderful people to please help with my kickstarter project:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/acraftyarab/arabic-alphabet-fun-flashcards?ref=live

Any and all help is appreciated. Not just in monetary value, but also in spreading the word. I am trying to create Arabic Alphabet Animal Fun Flashcards. I have a lot of really cool stuff to offer you for your help, so be sure to check out my page. Shukran!!!

Hey thanks, didn't know you guys had this service. This is great!!!

Here's my recent KickStarter
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/996412530/pixel-interactive-led-art, it's funded but still active

PIXEL is an LED based display for retro pixel art, an image that is drawn pixel by pixel just like it was done in the early days of computers and video games. A static image and/or an animation can be selected via the Android app, and then is relayed over Bluetooth and displayed on PIXEL's 32 x 32 RGB LED matrix.

There's also a DIY kit version of PIXEL. And what's really nice is the project requires zero soldering. You simply plug in the cables, load PIXEL's apps on your Android device, and go. The project documentation includes a step-by-step tutorial http://ledpixelart.com/pixelguts1024.html.

Oh yeah, we already know about that. We posted it on our Facebook page on Tuesday! Congrats on smashing through your goal so quickly.
thanks so much, I'm sure it helped!
I dont have a kick starter but if you would like to donate to me i need to get 100 dollars so i can build one of these just search Mini Tractor From Go kart parts on instructables you can donate on paypal to parkhigley6@gmail.com
