TEMPE, AZ - If you've ever had an idea but had no way to actually make it a reality, Kickstarter.com may be what you're looking for.
It's a "crowd sourcing" site.
You post details about your idea and users can pledge money.
Typically a pledge means, if and when, you make the product, they get one. If you reach your goal, the product goes to market. If it falls short of your goal, everybody gets their money back.
It's a new way for inventors, musicians and movie makers to raise money.
Some local entrepreneurs say it's a "game changer."
