E-paper Watch for iphone on Kickstarter gets $1M in 28 hours!

Pebble is a customizable electronic-paper watch. You can download new watchfaces, use sports and fitness apps, get notifications (incoming calls, sms, emails, change songs) from your iPhone or Android smartphone, everything working wireless while your phone is in your pocket. A concept that, (I know it’s crazy) but is not on the market, or at least not that simple and cheap (will sell for $149). Well it is just a concept right now and Eric Migicovsky decided to put it on Kickstarter and received amazing feedback from the entire tech world and pass his exception with a Kickstarter campaign asking for $100,000 in funding; it got that in the first two hours. By day’s end, the device had more than $500,000 in pledges and is now at $1,279,939 and 9,429 backers ! Amazing! Well let’s wait what Apple will do about that…
