Why do they need donations? Sounds like the scam from Nigeria.

That's how Kickstarter works.  Instead of getting money from investors / VCs or banks, they raise funds via "crowd sourcing".  Usually it's a win-win situation: cheaper cost of borrowing for the entrepreneur and the backers often get innovative products for less too.

I have no idea about anything involved in the link. A friend sent it to me by text, and I thought the concept was cool...nothing more!

Thanks for posting it.  I was just thinking the other day there must be an ap out there for that sort of thing, but couldn't find one.

I'm guessing they are giving the app away for free. All you really need is a piece of diffuse plastic to cover your camera. Great DIY project. Probably a plastic bubble from a broken light meter would have you covered.

$24.95 is unfortunately rather expensive for a product which is nothing more than a piece of plastic which has all its funding covered by outside sources the business doesn't need to pay back.

I see generic versions of these for $2.99  in the near future (for a wider variety of phones) but hey - dude has made $60k - decent start.

Or a ping pong ball cut in half.
