Just Kickin’ It
Crowdfunding platform Kickstarter has officially launched in Hong Kong. That means it’s easier than ever for Hongkongers to get their ideas funded, without having to get around annoying restrictions like getting their projects registered overseas. And it seems to be taking off, with Hongkongers leaping in to sign up and get things moving.
What’s top of the Hong Kong Kickstarter? One thing worth looking out for is a cookbook from longstanding arts group Para Site. The gallery is aiming to raise $80,000 for “The Unappropriated Recipes,“a collection of creative, mostly inedible Hong Kong-specific recipes. Ever wanted to learn how to fry egg whites and yolks separately, “One Country, Two Systems”-style? Now you can. The book is $200, with estimated delivery in March 2017.
Alternatively, check out the URI LED lightbulbs, a collection of awesome-looking bulbs which trace thin lines of lights around the glass. They’re eco-friendly and look great, with an average lifetime of 15,000 hours. Prices start at $380, with estimated delivery this December. kickstarter.com
