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.

ShadowCast is the simplest way to play console games on your computer. TVs aren’t always convenient so we made a way to take console gaming with you wherever you are without the need of an internet connection.
As lifelong console gamers, we know there may be some PC master race gamers who gawk at the idea of playing Mario on their powerful gaming computer. But we say the more games we can play, on even more platforms, the better!
The biggest benefit of course is to take advantage of the screen you’re always carrying already. Not one of those additional portable monitors but a laptop that we use daily for like… school, work, shopping and creative stuff.
Let’s imagine a time before 2020… and you were waiting at an airport for a flight to board and you wanted to get a couple rounds of Smash Bros in with a friend… or two… or three. Tabletop mode is nice… but let’s just say it’s not the most ergonomic. With ShadowCast you can easily plug your Nintendo Switch to your laptop and play on a screen over 4x the size.
Accompanying the ShadowCast is our new Genki Arcade app. We literally have made it easier than reaching for the TV remote and hitting the “input” button. We’ve designed Genki Arcade from the ground up to minimize computing resources and prioritize latency for gaming performance. Just open the app, and it’ll auto detect ShadowCast and you’ll be playing immediately without any settings to fiddle with.
As of December 22nd, this project has raised $180,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project has 37 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $35, you will get one ShadowCast. For a pledge of $99, you will get one ShadowCast convert kit. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/humanthings/genki-shadowcast?
