Kickstarting a keyboard-shaped waffle-iron

What started as a viral shoop is now a potential real thing, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign that's looking for $50K to go into production.

$60 gets you an iron. The creator does some very high-end 3D design work, but lists no experience with product production, so caveat emptor.

Over the past 2 years, the countless 3D models, 3D prints, and now fully functioning prototypes have resulted in a design that is extremely simple, with an overall industrial feel but hints of sophistication to make it surprisingly sleek.

Most importantly, it makes a great waffle, with just the right balance of soft and crispy areas that come from the keyboard pattern, and the thickness (just under 1") for a perfect portion.
