The emergence of Kickstarter has changed the environment for Start-ups. People can have an idea, whether it be a film, a product, a book, etc. and post it on the site and people can fund this project. In the curated section called, “Greek dads”, I found two projects. The first one is called the “Fidget cube”, and the second project is called “Superb Wooden Marble Run”. I will be explaining these in the following paragraphs.

It 's not a cube that fidgets on its own, but a cube that you can fidget with anywhere and anytime. The Fidget cube is created by Matthew and Mark McLachlan.
