Comment Ruining it for the rest of us (Score 3, Interesting) 66

This frustrates me.

I did an indiegogo in 2014, hit around 300%, bought a lathe and a drill press and a 3d printer, and delivered all the units within 90 days.

After that I decided to start selling my invention through regular channels... and discovered that crowdfunding is radioactive to investors unless you hit more than 1000%. Most people told me that what I had already invented, built, and sold was unfeasible.

One person even told me that it was unfeasible AFTER it had made a hole in his desk.

Why do grifters ruin it for the rest of us?
