Just Kickin’ It

HK Magazine - - GADGETS -

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
