Pebble Watch = Madness #HumorGeek

Along with CES 2013 comes news that the most-funded Kickstarter project to date, the Pebble E-Paper Watch, is nearing its goal of shipping actual product: the new devices are slated to hit the market January 23rd. The Pebble isn't the first wrist-based device to wirelessly link to a smart phone but it does appear to have the best chance for success of all such devices to date.

That said, a number of people take the view that it is a bit too much to expect someone to invest in a watch that tells you what is happening on the phone in your pocket. In that vein of thought ATXGeek presents you with the timeline graphic to the right:

  1. I noticed that you've written about Kickstarter campaigns, and although your article is a bit old, I just thought that you might be interested in ours.

    We've launched our very own crowdfunding campaign for our company, Protos Eyewear, to crowdfund custom fit eyewear made via 3D printing.

    We actually wanted to use the Kickstarter platform but it's unfortunate that they no longer allow eyewear. In turn, we have had to work extra hard to get the word out; And if it's okay, we would love to get your help and support in any way, shape or form.

    Please do check us out at to get a jist of what our project is about. We would be forever grateful if you can share our project with your readers, friends, or whoever you think would be interested.

    All the information is on the site, but should you have any inquiries or concerns regarding our campaign, please feel free to contact me at and I'll certainly get back to you as soon as I can.
