2 new Kickstarter-Indiegogo features that might change the game

Promising studio quality on the go, the British company Adaptalux hit its £107,000 toward a £100,000 goal late last week.

Pre-orders for the little Adaptalux studio, which received attention from the likes of F-Stoppers, PetaPixel, DIY Photography and Engadget, are being taken on the Adaptalux website.

The “Pre-Order here” button and new, full screen photo background now on the Adaptalux campaign page comes from Kickstarter’s new Spotlight feature. Debuted last month, Spotlight allows creators to add a button (like one that says you can still buy our product) and keep funders up to date with developments after the crowdfunding campaign is over.

The ability to allow sales to continue after a crowdfunding campaign ends is a first for Kickstarter, said spokesperson Justin Kazmark.

Similarly, Indiegogo’s InDemand came out in January and allows people to give or continue to purchase a product after a successful campaign has ended.

So if you still want that portable drone for photography or to back Super Troopers 2 (once they hit $4.5 million they’ll add live bears!), now’s your chance.
