Thimble Is A Go!

Within hours of launching its Kickstarter campaign, Thimble reached its financial goal. Not only did the start-up (Learn & Build Electronics with Monthly Delivered Kits) reach its goal, it far surpassed the monetary target. With 52 days left in its campaign, Thimble raised $56,409. It’s original goal was set at $25,000!

If you’re not familiar with the background of this project, we featured Thimble a couple of weeks ago on BRO. Tech geek entrepreneurs Oscar Pedroso and David Brenner developed the concept of Thimble as a way to deliver scientific gadgets to your door.

Once assembled the various gadgets can be operated by the person that assembled the machine. Each month, Thimble subscribers are sent components that they must then fashion together by reading directions and collaborating. Obviously this concept struck a chord with a tech fans (406 so far), who helped to bring the vision to reality.

I’m beginning to wonder what the world without crowdfunding initiatives might look like. This Buffalo born start-up is well on its way towards delivering fun, unique, smart products to the doors of people who might rather interact with technology and machines, instead of passively watching TV for hours on end.
