The people who came up with this made the tagline "get a rush while you brush!" They claim that the energy-boost effect is sudden compared to the 30-45 minutes it takes coffee. As strange and potentially unhealthy as this might sound, it made its $47,000-plus goal.
This project was to make a hand-to-smartphone surrogate - one that was just a piece of plastic that looks like a smartphone. Now, why is this one called the ZERO, you ask? Well, this is the second time they've successfully funded this "least advanced" phone ever - it's just a rectangular plastic piece this time around.
3. Bea Arthur's Bust; A Mosaic Re-Creation Using McDonald's Cups
Modern art can be pretty weird, but this would make Warhol blush. Creator "Jules" asked for enough money to buy 12 McDonalds iced teas, which he would then empty and rip up into pieces and make into a mosaic of the Golden Girls star. Granted, the goal was set at thirteen dollars so it wasn't hard to meet but it's still a strange undertaking.
Does it look like an adult pacifier? Without a doubt, but the creators believe their device will strengthen your neck and facial muscles. That strengthened jawline is needed when you remember how this ludicrous product got six thousand dollars more than the target goal.
The idea is slightly similar to the signal-blocking beanie, it's just the part of your body that it's covering. The reason behind it is also interesting - the creators are concerned about how cell phone radiation affect your reproductive organs. People gave their money for silver underpants to protect their junk and lady parts.
Avant-garde art is weird, and there is always a crowdfunding market for it. From the bowels of Brooklyn is a group that needed the money to perform this: drop a baby grand piano onto a pyramid of 385 champagne glasses. You can actually watch it happen here.
Before you wonder if the money is going in making the world's largest, that's not what this Kickstarter was about. This man had it complete, he just needed the money to submit the scanned measurements to the Guinness Book of World Records. This one is apparently ten times the size of the previous record holder - and yes, that means someone had tried this before.
People love the smell of meat and freshly fried bacon, and some people really want that smell to linger. So they used animal byproducts to make different colors, styles and flavors. They were very, very specific that you do not eat the soap.
After all the news of despair and ruin the city of Detroit has gone through over the years, so many memes have turned towards the biggest fictional lawman of the city. That's where Detroit residents decided it would be a great idea to start a campaign to erect a statue in Robocop's honor. It worked for Rocky in Philly, right?
11. Graphing The Deliciousness Of A Chicken Burrito
There have been thousands of successful Kickstarter games with crazy premises (Exploding Kittens, anyone?). This one takes on some UNO concept and throws it in the toilet, kinda. The novelty of this campaign was so strong, they made enough money for an expansion pack.
The mother of all weirdest Kickstarters came in the form of this bowl. Zack Daniels asked for ten bucks for a delicious potato salad. He got over $55,000 dollars and a live stream of a lot more potato salad.
Conspiracy theorists take heart; you can now go out and fight the New World Order in style! This sartorially chic and comfortable beanie also blocks electromagnetic waves from your head. The idea for this project came when someone blamed their insomnia on cell phone and wifi waves.
