I understand risks(theft quality control, etc), benefits are potentially eliminate shipping (customer picks up locally), no more one replicator bottleneck, distributed distribution.

J. C. Oliveira (07.17.13, 1:27 AM): Michael, many people rely on kickstarter for the tooling costs. If you haven't seek kickstarter yet, go to kickstarter.com That is a place where people can put up ideas to get funding from people all around the world. The crowd sourcing setup has worked quite nicely for a number of projects. I could see an entry for the sky cam adapter, where people could get an adapter, some DVDs+adapter, a number of adapters, adapters in a special colour (people seem to like such options), thumbnail drive, an adapter along with a 3D printed adapter with their name on it, etc. :^) There are some rather weird projects in kickstarter, but many very cool things as well. Keep up the great work!
