Best of Kickstarter: Kung Fury

kungfury-film

David Sandberg’s over the top 1980′s action cop movie “Kung Fury” went up on Kickstarter a couple days ago and has already raised over $280,000. The film is about a cop who goes back in time to kill the most dangerous kung fu master, Adolf Hitler (naturally).

David and his friends live in Sweden and have shot most of their film, set in 1980′s Miami, in their tiny studio. They’ve gone to comical lengths to stretch their minuscule budget, for example they could only afford one police uniform so they had to shoot every extra separately.

Watch the amazing trailer below, the time travel sequence is what sold me on this movie.

Best of Kickstarter: Scrooser

Best of Kickstarter: Scrooser
The Scrooser is an eco-friendly, battery-powered, scooter and its design is more Harley than Vespa. Maybe that’s a stretch, but look at those tires! I don’t know if I’d actually ride one, but I can see why the invention has already destroyed its $120k goal. Watch the video below!

Best of Kickstarter: Musguard

Best of Kickstarter: MUSGUARD
Musguard is the brainchild of Jurij Lozić, a designer from Ljubljana, Slovenia. It’s a simple, removable fender, and you can roll it onto your bike frame to store it. Watch the video to get a better idea, by the time I got to the end I wanted to be buds with Jurij. He’s even giving away the bike in the video as one of the rewards!

Check out the video below!
