This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Created by MIT professor Carlo Ratti, Scribit is a small “writing robot” that can draw images and text on any vertical surface. What if you could instantly turn your office or living room wall into a canvas for digital content, and update it in real time? A restaurant can post the day’s menu on its wall, professionals can support their focus by writing new motivational sentences every day, or someone who loves art can draw on a Van Gogh — or their own drawings – onto their bedroom wall.
Thanks to a special patented technology, Scribit can safely draw, erase and re-draw new content an infinite number of times, allowing you to print a different image on your wall every few minutes. Scribit uses 2 wheels to climb (almost) any type of vertical surface. Whiteboards, glass and standard plaster are the surfaces we recommend to obtain the highest quality drawings. Scribit will offer users access to a broad range of digital content structured around mini Apps. In this global marketplace, people, businesses or institutions – from artists, to museums, to media organisations – can develop and upload any type of content. Imagine if you could reconfigure your walls every day. You might draw on masterpieces from the best museums of New York, Paris or Tokyo, or discover the latest works by emerging artists.
As of June 18th, this project has raised $575,000 of their $50,000 goal. This project has 17 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $349, you will get one Scribit.
