Chuck,

I write about so much, which bike one are you referencing?

Cabe, don't you think the bicycle projector that you wrote about would be a natural for Kickstarter?

Neat. Also, you must have an idea people want.

Design West has a history of the great sessions, including the Volt teardown two years ago.

Chuck,  I agree with you. This forum would be fascinating and also maybe a better audience than the typical venture capital presentation. More technical, less financial.  Would be interesting to see the dynamics of the presentations.

This is a discussion I'd love to see. Kickstarter has a lot of momentum behind it right now. I seem to be hearing about every day.

Very interesting concept and probably an easier audience than the Shark Tank panel. It would be interesting to see how much can be raised and the complications if a larger group of investors provided funding (versus one or a much smaller group).  Will be interested to see the reaction and how this works.

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books.
