OUYA and the Crowd-Funding Phenomenon: But Let the Buyer Beware!

I discuss what looks to be one of the largest projects ever crowd-funded by one of these sites: Ouya, an Android-based console for 0. Looks pretty good to be honest, but let the “FUNDER BEWARE” of these crowd-funded projects! • FREE NetFlix Trial: www.netflix.com • Twitter: www.Twitter.com • Facebook: www.Facebook.com • G2PO: www.G2PO.com • NGTZombies: www.G2PO.com • NGTMinecraft: www.G2PO.com • WebofSpiderBite: www.YouTube.com • NGTGames: www.G2PO.com • NGTChallenges: www.YouTube.com Tags: ouya, pebble, android, console, kickstarter, indiegogo, crowd funding

Please check for us on Kickstarter: www.kickstarter.com Horto domi is an open hardware raised-bed garden unit with environmental control and monitoring via web-interface thanks to Arduino Ethernet. DIY sensors, such as those collecting moisture and temperature data help monitor the environment within the dome, and will eventually be used to automate conditions. The goal is to grow whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you are. Horto domi is Latin for ‘Garden at home.’ It’s a statement to healthful food independence, a “neo-renaissance” tip of the hat to Arduino, and it sounds like horticultural dome. Particular consideration was taken in this prototype’s design to maximize the mineral and nutrient value of the beyond-organic produce and minimize environmental contamination risks. With minimum Kickstarter funding we can satisfy all the elements necessary for an open hardware publication per the definition provided by FreedomDefined.org/OSHW. However, with additional funding we will be able to pursue further open source innovation, development and publication. We hope that you will feel compelled to support the idea of using contemporary open technology to achieve relative food independence so that we might better address social concerns and the question of greater human destiny.

  • Tommy Guerrera

    I pledged $129 to the Ouya kickstarter (The $99 pledge plus $30 for an extra controller) after a couple weeks of researching it. It looks very great and there will be legit awesome games for it. I can’t wait to get my Ouya.

    Sorry, it’s going to fail. I just thought you knew the obvious. 

  • MrStrangeCrow

    Ouya never went into production. So how could have it failed?

  • IS0iOS

    ouya is still a failure.

  • MrStrangeCrow

    No it isn’t, it’s also on the PC. iOS, Xbox 360 AND Andriod, which is what OUYA’s platform is based on, the Android. Mojang can also code a minecraft game on this platform, since Mojang put $10,000 in this project already.

    minecraft is a 360 exclusive

    Kind of worried because the console will be open to hackers. Now hackers on a console don’t really go hand in hand, so publishers/ developers will have to spend money on servers made specifically for hackers and modders. That might limit certain devs and publishers from creating games.

    is world at war fun on ps3? i know it has hackers but is it fun and have a lot of people playing without hacks?
