Hardware Startups on the Rise

Thoughtful post from Chris Dixon on why Hardware Startups are on the rise. I couldn't agree more, especially with the boost that Kickstarter and Indiegogo have provided. The hardest thing about a hardware startup is actual production. You need volume and you need money. The crowdfunding sites give you both - an enthusiastic user base that signs up in advance and also pays in advance. It's a beautiful combination.
