A new video game console is on the way. It's called OUYA and it went to Kickstarter for a campaign five days ago to raise $950,000 for launch. With 24 days left in their campaign, they've raised so far as of this writing, $4,831,797 through 37,779 backers and that figure is going up with every passing minute!
According to Kickstarter, in reaching its goal, Ouya holds the record for best first day performance of any project hosted to date. Within the first 24 hours the project attracted one backer every 5.59 seconds. Ouya became the eighth project in Kickstarter history to raise more than a million dollars, and then became the most quickly funded project on Kickstarter to reach one million dollars.
Crowdfunding had come of age my friends!
We'll be following Ouya's Kickstarter progress over the next 24 days on the Forum topic. Meanwhile check out the video that explains what Ouya is about and what the team is attempting to achieve.
