You know what really impresses me with some of these campaigns? The fact that apart from the perks there is nothing else in it for the investors. Just the satisfaction of knowing they have helped a fledgling company get its ideas off the ground.

Just imagine when investors will be rewarded with shares in the company.

I am thinking the same way. I think I'll have a field day trying to pick out all the awesome projects I want to invest into. Also we will have to be careful of scams though, but I assume that's what's taking the SEC so long to get things right, the proper regulatory framework....

I like all of these projects, they all seem very interesting. Can my project be a hot project for this week? I’m number #2 on the staff pick on kickstarter and it’s only been my 1st day campaign.

If if could not be a hot project your feedback on why it wouldn’t would be appreciated.:)

The hot projects are choosen as a simple formula. Those projects which launched in the last 7 days and received at least $40,000 in funding already.
