Once a month we'll be bringing you a look at some of the best local Kickstarter campaigns in order to let you know what's getting ready to be unleashed through the help of small investors.
I try to avoid projects that have already met their funding goals, but for sheer size and scope I have to mention Houston-native Kevin Rustagi who has pulled off the largest fashion-based Kickstarter project ever. So far he's raised over $400k. What's he doing with it? Rustagi is combining NASA technology with everyday dress shirts in order to bring people the latest in hi-tech fashion.
Using a unique blend of fibers, the shirts regulate body heat, moisture, are coated with an anti-microbial agent that will greatly reduce body odor, adapt perfectly to your movements, are completely wrinkle-free, and just for extra kicks they're machine-washable. For once in your life you'll be able to say, "If it's good enough for the astronauts it's good enough for me," without referring to dehydrated food.
Goal: $30,000 by July 11 (Met by a HUGE margin)
