One addition to the "We're holding off" list (bummer - I had significant influence in this one):
Holy Crap - that's a LONG list of "Killed" and "We're Holding Off" products!
I think back to all of the hopes and dreams, time, drama, etc. over the last few years represented by those names. The shear magnitude of time spent on those items is staggering - between Quirky Staff and community member effort, there were probably literally a MILLION person-hours put into those killed/on-hold items.
The dreams - so many people thought they had really won something and had valuable influence.
And all the drama - now all "sound and fury, signifying nothing".
ABCreations - kudos for putting in a lot of effort to keep that list updated.
After speaking with Quirky's Dan Turk at the Chicago Housewares show recently, it was clear to me that Q has really beefed up its engineering talent, especially in electrical engineering. That, and seeing fully functional prototypes of both bathroom fans there pretty soon after those products were chosen, convinced me that Quirky has much deeper capabilities now in producing complex electronics that it did in the "old days".
