Have a bad idea? Now there is a crowdfunding site for it! Flopstarter is the world’s first (and leading) platform where bad ideas can be funded.
Thanks to sites like Kickstarter or indiegogo, crowdfunding has become one of the top ways to find the money needed to bring ideas to life. And it works: some campaigns far exceed their funding goals. Of course, Kickstarter has also been the stage for some very strange ideas, which have also become funding successes – like this potato salad which received over $55,000 in funding from 6,911 backers.
Flopstarter already has a bunch of interesting, all useless, ideas that are waiting to be backed. The site even claims that all projects will be completed if funded. Of course, this is all a joke – yet a magnificent idea. We love it.
Here are some of our favorite bad ideas featured on Flopstarter; which one is your favorite?
A minimalist timepiece that does away with the final distraction – watch hands.
