This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post will take place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Soggy buns got you down? Try the Burger Lift and Elevate Your Favorite Food! Here at Burger Lift, they love hamburgers and they know you do too!!! Everything from the juicy patty, to the crisp lettuce, to a delicious sauce that pulls the whole meal together. It is their feeling that the hamburger might be the single greatest invention in human history! They are not alone. Americans eat roughly 50 billion burgers every year. That’s roughly 3 burgers per person every week! But while eating all these burgers, they started to notice a problem. So what’s the best part of the burger? The juiciness of a medium-rare patty, of course. The worst part, the juice! Juice spills out of the hamburger and inevitably begins to pool on the plate.
Do we set it in the juice and get the dreaded soggy bun? Do we place it awkwardly on the edge of the plate? Do we balance the burgers on the fries? Or do we just hold the burger throughout the meal? None of these options are ideal. The Burger Lift was conceived to give you a place to rest your burger to avoid all the sogginess and let you enjoy every bite of your favorite meal from start to finish. It would raise the burger a fraction of an inch above the plate and allow the burger to elevate above the mess. From the rapid plastic prototypes, they commissioned several stainless steel prototypes based on their final design. This design contains an iconic burger image that is slowly revealed as the meal is consumed. The concentric rings allow the juices of the burger to pass onto the plate while the bun remains elevated above the mess.
As of March 24th, this project has raised around $5,430 of their $10,001 goal. This project only has 21 days left to raise the $20,000 or it might not be funded! For a pledge of $28, you will get 2 Burger Lifts of your very own plus 2 Bonus Koozies. For a pledge of $50, you will get 2 Burger Lifts and a Burger Lift Apron.
