On the Verge of New Industrial Revolution

I think crowdfunding has already started unleashing the potential of creative people, worldwide. And I mean crowdfunding in its current donation-and-reward-based form, not equity-and-profit based. Web platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are the best accelerators nowadays. They spur the creativity and innovation of many many small entrepreneurs. Just look at some recent Kickstarter projects:

These and many others are not any more “fund-me-cause-Im-pretty” or “fund-my-next-shopping” projects, but truly innovative and creative ones. Moreover, they are challenging the status quo in hardware, manufacturing and services. Open-source was until now only software-related. Now more and more innovators want to bring Open-Source and Open-Innovation to the hardware – in manufacturing, robotics, entertainment, homes. Don’t you see it? It’s not too different than the time when the first personal computers were introduced. We’re on the verge of new industrial revolution.
