Kickstarter assembled a slideshow of highlights from 2013, and fronting the list were the Oculus Rift and Ouya. Those two projects were technically funded near the end of 2012, but they've certainly come to fruition in 2013. Oculus Rift was funded on August 31, 2012, and received $2.4 million of its $250,000 goal. Ouya, fully funded on August 8, 2012, crowdfunded nearly $8.6 million of a $950,000 goal.
We'll have to pin him down for an update, but John Yan, our senior hardware editor, fronted cash for an Ouya and has long been a member of the choir singing praises unto the Oculus Rift.
