    Interesting but you forgot to mention that it is open for US citizens only. It is invitation-only which means it is only available to well connected people who probably don't really need the funding.. Interesting idea though. Maybe the idea will spread and be more widely available.

    Ah, didn't realise it was US only - as for invite only, I think that will change fairly soon, and I think if you were the first modder, we could probably maybe help get you an invite :)

    I would have to have an invite in order to be the first modder....its the chicken or the egg thing all over again. lol

    I have joined the site and the associated Facebook page. The Facebook page looks like a giant beg-fest for invites. I have a project proposal but I don't see any mechanism for submitting it...unless I have an invitation.

    After further review...

    Successful funding seems to be tied to the ability to offer backers specific reward(s) for their financial support. For example, people who seek funding for producing or publishing their work are offering free or discount pricing for the resulting product. Cool idea but I don't see how that translates to case modding. What can a case modder offer a backer in exchange for their cash? (Insert sexually oriented "job" joke here).

    The system doesn't require that you give out rewards to backers but I didn't see any examples of that actually working.

    DarthBeavis, that could really be helpful for modders starting or already established and recognized modders that in some point of their projects or life, can't manage to have the funds to see their projects through. Some piece of hardware that is hard to find or very limited to some countries. Everyone must have been through that at some point of their modding procedure
