Kickstarter: $1 billion pledged to wacky prototypes

Kickstarter announced on Monday that there have now been $1 billion worth of pledges to all kinds of its weird, wonderful (and sometimes terrible) projects.

Since its launch in April 2009, Kickstarter has become the top crowdfunding site for everything from movie projects to sex toy boxes and more than 5.7 million of us across 224 countries have parted with our pennies to fund some of the best ideas.

In the site’s announcement this morning, the Kickstarter team has also revealed a number of other stats about who has been using the site the most and exactly what that $1 billion total could also buy – the Roman Colosseum and Instagram in case you were wondering.
