From beer pong innovations to tiny portable air conditioners, Kickstarter remains a source for brilliant and potentially life-changing products you never knew you needed -- at least if you're willing to make a contribution. But now, Amazon is making it even easier to find and buy hundreds of products born from successful Kickstarter campaigns with its all-new Kickstarter Collection.
Amazon announced the new store on Wednesday, saying it already features more than 300 Kickstarter products -- everything from toilet night lights to smart herb gardens -- from startups like Prynt, Piper, Zivix, MudWatt, among many others. The collection is sorted into several categories such as electronics, wireless accessories, home & kitchen, books, movies & TV, and toys & games. You can even get silverware that seconds as beer bottle openers.
The collection was created by Amazon Launchpad, a division of the company that works with venture capitol firms, startups, and crowdfunding platforms to help bring new products. The launch of the new Kickstarter Collection is particularly exciting because it means more cool stuff for you to buy -- without the risk of contributing to a Kickstarter campaign. Say goodbye to all your money.
