What did we do before crowdfunding? Had a lot less cool $hit, I guess. Since the inception of Kickstarter and Indiegogo, thousands of worthwhile causes have received funding. Lifelong dreams and ambitions have been fulfilled, projects and products that have enriched the world might never have done so, if not for crowdfunding.
There’s also been some pretty mad, pointless and downright dumb stuff on there too, and that’s what we’ll be looking at here.
#1 Amabrush – The automatic toothbrush that isn’t actually a toothbrush
Amabrush is a testament to our current obsession with reclaiming lost or wasted time. It’s an automatic toothbrush that looks like some kind of deep-sea cucumber and brushes your teeth – even better than you can – in just 10 seconds. 10 seconds! Imagine the things you’ll do each day with those 3 and half minutes that Amabrush has allowed you to regain! Ok, but before you start making plans, Amabrush isn’t quite ready yet. They’ve exceeded the funding goal – amassing over $3 million – and plan to launch the product in July 2018. Until then, your boring old manual toothbrush will have to do.
