Kickstarter's awesome successes
Detroit needs, and will get, a life-size Robocop statue:
After Detroit's Mayor Dave Bing tweeted that, despite requests, there were no plans to erect a Robocop statue in the city, à la Philly's Rocky monument, online denizens stepped in. Nonprofit community artist group Imagination Station raised $67,436 (well above its $50,000 goal). 3-D images have been made of the proposed statue.
