Favorite Kickstarter-Funded Projects from 2018 - Maker Faire Rome

Favorite Kickstarter-Funded Projects from 2018


Kickstarter staffers back a lot of projects. Like, a lot a lot. (Shout-out to Tieg Zaharia, who backed his 5,000th project this year.)

So as we prepare to say ta-ta to  Maker Faire Rome 2019, we’re taking a look back at some of the projects kickstarter supported that became available to read, watch, play, play with, listen to, and experience in the past year.

Among tge  favorites: a public art campaign to spark civic engagement across the United States; a republished 1901 manual by a forgotten female pioneer of color theory; a headset-free 3D holographic display; and an obsessively engineered spoon for eating peanut butter. (We’re a fun, weird bunch.)

The 50 State Initiative by For Freedoms

Patton says: “For Freedoms’ 50 State Initiative represented a much-needed space for discourse in our politically bifurcated times. I believe that art has the ability to break down barriers and allow people to come together and find commonalities. Their 50+ artist-designed billboards ignited the country with a sense of urgency and sensitivity for fellow citizens. I’m so thrilled we were able to support Hank, Eric, and their whole team in bringing the first element of the initiative to life.”

“Art has the ability to break down barriers and allow people to come together and find commonalities.”

Mil adds: “It has a great message and impact on the lives of people who are exposed to this project. Plus, it was a one-of-a-kind project on a scale we hadn’t supported before at Kickstarter. There was a lot of work put into it to make it happen.”
