A Kickstarter graveyard for the biggest losers, Ep. 183

Culture
Hey, guys. My name is Stephen Beacham, and here's what's happening this week on Cnet's Crave. [MUSIC] On Wednesday, November 12th, 2014, the European Space Agency's Philae lander. Detach from the Rosetta spacecraft and touch down on a freaking comet 300 million miles away from the earth. In case you haven't noticed or you've been floating in space on a rock, CNET's Crave blog has been all over the coverage, although along with a photo gallery of Rosetta's long 20-year journey from concept. Touchdown. Hear the sound of the comet vaulting from space as the Philae lander approaches. And check out the first images beamed back to Earth from the lander. CNET's great writers have been all over it so take some time to learn about one of the greatest achievements accomplished by man in modern history. [MUSIC] Lately, Crave has been writing about a lot of weird new futuristic vehicles like this quatrefoil for instance, which rides on four hydrofoils, seats two people comfortably, has a top speed of 25 miles per hour, and a range of about 54 miles. Maybe you're into this flying sportscar. The AeroMobil 3.0 is the real deal when it comes to flying cars. It actually morphs like a transformer from a spacy looking sports car into a futuristic looking airplane. The AeroMobil 3.0 has received certification by the Slavic Federation of Ultralight Flying. As authorized by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Slavic republic. If hydro foils and flying cars aren't your thing then check out Crave's photo gallery of the most odd bicycles conceived by man. The odd ball bike gallery contains bikes made for fighting zombies Bikes with tires made of ice for mountain biking on glaciers. And of course terrifying flying bike. And finally, the crave blog features a ton of weird and kooky Kickstarter projects that probably only a fraction of ever get funded. Oh, yeah. And then there are those campaigns that don't receive a single dollar, which is so bad. Well, where do these Kickstarter campaigns go when they die? They wind up on kickended.com, when you go to the kickended.com. You are automatically routed to one of the 9,021 failed projects on kickendit. It's a vast source of sadness and uninteresting but hilarious project pictures. In the Crave article, writer Amanda Kousser points out a few worth mentioning like this double-deep V-neck shirt for muscle men, or a line of jam-band bobbleheads. That's right, not a single penny. Kickended pulls it's data from Kick spy. A site that let's you search and track Kickstarter projects. Kickended creator Silvio Lorusso describes the site as the place where campaigns with no backers live a second life. Free from the pressure of money raising these retain the. Security of abstract ideas. Alright guys that your show, thank you very much for watching. As always you could find all these new stories in CNet's crave blog, CRAVE.
