Shide Crowd Funding: UPDATE n.1

for more info go to: www.indiegogo.com About the project Hi guys! we are Shide and we’re an indipendent italian rock band! Shide was born in 2001 and from that the line up is changed so many times…as the music genre! The present video is to ask you for something that´s vital to us! We began work on our first release album in August 2009. We´ve worked hard these past two years perfecting the sound to achieve today´s result. There are some samples we´ve embedded for you to listen just for this campaign. We’re finally ready to complete the project, but are in need of procuring additional funding to make it happen. We’ve been working in some great studio in Conversano, BA Italy with top gear, engineers and with the Michael C. Ross consulence (LA engineer producer of world famous artists like Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Carlton and many other). Our album will feature anywhere between 11 and 13 tracks (will be also two cover) of our best songs. We´ve also produced our first video that proved to be a massive amount of work we´re very proud of today. For this we must thank the guys from Basix Communication and all of our friends that gave us an hand. The result it´s amazing.

But he quit the lab in frustration at what he saw as a slow pace of work and a focus on expensive solutions.

Once there, his mind turned to a futuristic solution: a low-cost clean-up robot that local people could build and deploy themselves. Yet his two criteria for the project — a quick build and open-source intellectual property — all but ruled out academic or industrial funding. Harada turned to Kickstarter, a website used by authors, film-makers and artists in search of project funding. He uploaded a pitch, set a goal of raising US500 and listed a series of small rewards for donors. Then he started to network furiously. Money came in from friends and engineering colleagues. A few companies heard about his idea; they pitched in several thousand dollars each. Word reached people he had never met, and they contributed too. When Harada’s funding appeal closed in April 2011, he had raised almost 000 — enough to assemble a team of engineers and build a prototype of the clean-up robot.
