Kickstarter of the Week: Free2Go SmartCar Bike Rack

It’s not often a Kickstarter lives up to Austin’s national stereotypes, but this may be the most Austiny Kickstarter ever started in Austin. That’s not a criticism. If I had my druthers, I’d own a SmartCar with a custom Doctor Who TARDIS paint job, and of course it would need a bike rack.

Austin Kickstarter of the Week: Synergy Wireless Smartphone Charger
