This weekend, I noticed that a couple of great projects are on KickStarter: SketchChair and Melody Man. SketchChair is a software tool for designing custom chairs that can be laser-cut, CNC routed, or otherwise fabricated. Melody Man is a designer toy with a hand crank, LED animations, and music. They’re both closely related to the topic of my thesis: SketchChair because of the close connection between the digital design and the object; Melody Man as an example of an artisanal electronic product.
Both projects have optimistic funding targets ($18,000 and $19,050 respectively), so you should go back them now!
