|Wheels as Art|
On to FlyKly, which is a very clever wheel that fits almost any bicycle to give you an assisted ride. You have to know that I have been searching for the past year or so for an affordable battery assisted bicycle that is lightweight and easy to use. FlyKly has all of this and a lot more. Their goal was to raise $100,000 to begin production in NY. To date they have 536 backers, have raised $147, 512 and have 36 days to go in their campaign. I think that this one is a winner!!
There were a few other projects as well. Two of which are not only from Canada, but from very close to home. One is in Toronto, where I live, and another is in Ottawa, where the government lives. Both projects happen to be Sci Fi novels. One is 180% funded with 28 days to go in their campaign and the other is 722% funded with 12 days to go. I wonder if the success of Alice Munro's recent Noble prize award has sparked this interest? However, Alice didn't write Sci Fi. Her novels were very real!! Let's not confuse the two :)
The site obviously works. Hurray!!
Have a fully funded Day!!
