Technology and gadgets website Gadgets Made Simple (GMS) is planning to leverage the crowd-sourcing platform KickStarter to fund an innovative new product, it was learned today. GMS’s Chief Operating Officer Randy Oswald said they were not ready to reveal the details about their product idea yet, but confirmed that AMG Services had been hired for marketing the project.
AMG Services has handled many KickStarter projects in the past, and has a reputation for exceeding the funding targets for most of the ventures that it has handled. The company has a vast network of donors and angel investors, who are willing to contribute small amounts of money to see innovative ideas turned into reality.
“We have been raising funds for innovators ever since the idea of crowd-sourcing was born,” says AMG Services’ CMO Daniel Goldsmith. “We have successfully met and exceeded funding targets ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars.”
Gadgets Made Simple is preparing to produce a home automation system that will open locks, operate appliances, and switch on lights, it was learned during an informal meeting at GMS Head Office.
The idea of a home-automation gadget is not totally unheard of, and various smartphone companies (including Apple) have been reportedly working on it for years. It appears that Gadgets Made Simple is going to separate the “home remote controller” from the smartphone and introduce it as a stand-alone gadget.
“We have already started working on the marketing materials and plan to offer the project for funding early next month,” Goldsmith of AMG Services said. The two companies didn’t reveal the amount of funding they would be seeking.
