You know your project will be a hit when you ask an investor for USD $100,000, but instead, you get a check for USD $1 million.
That’s what’s happening to Kano, a computer project powered by Raspberry Pi that enables anybody, including kids, to assemble a computer from scratch.
The guys behind Kano started a project on Kickstarter with the goal of raising USD $100,000. With 15 days left to go, the sum raised has crossed the USD $1 million mark. And at the rate people are pumping money in, it could raise close to USD $1.5 million by December 19 (2013), the project’s closing date on Kickstarter. That screams success. Maybe Mark Shuttleworth should talk to the Kano guys.
