Sorry haven't updated OP in a while. Just not really motivated to do so these days. I probably will at a later date, but if anyone's had the intention to make a new thread for this purpose, be my guest.
No idea if this was mentioned somewhere, I don't think it deserves its own thread:
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indiego-a-proper-open-video-game-console?c=home
Either this is a scam, or the creators have no clue about what kind of project will definitely not be successful. Apart from the project itself, a multitude of mistakes in the pitch and the depressing 15€ they got in the first 6 days do not exactly inspire confidence.


edit: Just to give an example (is this Google translate? I don't get what the answer is supposed to say):

Q: Will it have parental controlls

A: Fore sure, that sure hat whe didn’t thought to announce it : ) Yes of course.

And it's a flexible funding campaign too... pathetic.
I think the games on Kickstarter are cool, but does anyone have any non-video game related projects which look interesting? Some of the tech hardware or other things like that?
I came across this the other day and thought it looked interesting:

Jon Shafer's At the Gates

I haven't backed it myself, but am paying attention to it and am excited to see how it turns out.
(Sorry if it has been posted before.)
Not a game, but I think it's an important project that needs funding.

That desk looks interesting - but a real gamer's desk would need to include a catheter and feeding tube...
For the people worried with GPG, today was announced they were bought by Wargaming, World of Tanks developer. Wildman status with this purchase is unknown yet: http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/02/14/chris-taylors-gas-powered-games-acquired-by-wargaming-net/

Some new entries:

PC Games:
Terrestrial Domination: A Space RTS Game (Win, Linux, Mac) (Mar 13)
Covering the major platforms from day one with a downloadable alpha.
Rogue System (Mar 22)
Cross between a space-combat/trader and a hardcore combat game - has a rather high funding target compared to similar KS projects but seems also to have more detailed preparation.

Boardgames:
Machine of Death: The Game of Creative Assassination (Mar 20)
Looks like a creatively perverse boardgame - you have to assassinate people according to their predetermined fate (e.g. slipping on a banana skin).
Mutant Chronicles Warzone Resurrection (Apr 15)
Scifi miniatures combat game with 4 factions (plus a fifth depending on funding). Very high-level pledgers can get their face and body on a miniature of their choice (could be a disincentive for some).

Accessories:
Doppelganger: The Universal Game Piece (Mar 5)
Intended for boardgames, this counter (with an LCD screen front and back) could probably have a host of other uses.

Aurora Rising, RPG inspired by FTL
Tremulous 2, FPS/RTS, sequel of the first Tremulous

This looks awesome. A HIGHLY detailed roguelike with generations to boot.
