kickstarterWere you one of the 3 million people who donated to Kickstarter last year? If so, then you helped to fund 19,911 crowd-sourced projects, up from 18,109 projects from the previous year.

On average, Kickstarter projects were able to garner $1,315,520 in pledges every day in 2013, or $913 every minute. Overall, the company racked in $480 million from 3 million users from 214 countries and all 7 continents. Yes, even Antarctica!

To celebrate what the company accomplished in 2013, the company created a Year in Kickstarter presentation, complete with moving pictures of some of their favorite projects:  the Pebble smartwatch, the Ouya game console, the Oculus Rift virtual reality headgear, and the sea faring Delorean Hovercraft, just to name a few.
