Martin Kastner's Porthole Blowing Up

New, 6 comments

Porthole-082112.jpgSo remember when Alinea tableware designer Martin Kastner wanted to raise $28k for a new project? Well he blew past that number within two hours of the Kickstarter campaign going live. Now, two weeks in, Kastner has raised more than $370,000 from about 2,200 backers to create a mass-production line of his Aviary-designed Porthole, which allows for people to quickly infuse anything from cocktails to teas to salad dressing. Pretty amazing. [Kickstarter]
