Kickstarter is not a store, it’s where creators come together with backers to bring creative projects to life. To underscore this, we ask that creators in these categories be clear with backers about the work remaining in their project, and their prior experience in hardware and design.
We ask that hardware projects be shown as they are — even if it’s just an early working prototype (see our Prototype Gallery for more details). We don’t allow photorealistic renderings. We also ask creators in these categories to detail for backers how they’ll produce their product and whether they’ve done things like it before.
