We have featured a number of Kickstarter projects here at Geeky Gadgets, the latest one is called the HexBright Flex, and it is an open source flashlight which was designed by Christian Carelberg.
Christian just dropped us an email to let us know that the HexBright Flex is now one of the top 10 most funded projects on Kickstarter, having raised over $175,000 in funding.
When I told people at the Bay Area Maker Faire I was going to make an open source, programmable flashlight some people called me crazy. Now seven weeks later, my project HexBright FLEX is one of the top ten most funded Kickstarter projects to date, raising over $175,000 and over 2000 backers who think I am not crazy, including MythBuster legend Grant Imahara.
The HexBright Flex flashlight is an open source flashlight that can be recharged via USB and can be completely programmed, you can find out more information over at Kickstarter and also HexBright.
