The fine fellows at Studio Neat, Tom & Dan (interviewed in Episode #26) , launched a new crowdfunding campaign today that they had hinted out when we spoke. The Neat Ice Kit, a great name, will let you create clear ice for cocktails. There’s an advantage to ice without bubbles: it not only looks beautifully, but it melts more slowly and consistently, which makes ice more of a precisely controlled ingredient than a watery explosion. (Alison Hallett wrote about clear ice in “Icecapades” in The Magazine.)
As we’ve seen across many interviews, people who complete one crowdfunding project successfully often learn so much from the experience that they come back again — and sometimes again and again!
