Thanks to online fundraising giant Kickstarter, Brad Benke of Stahl Architects already has donations from people around the world in support of his furniture design called the RoboChair.


Benke has until 10 a.m. next Friday to find investors willing to help him reach the $17,500 needed to refine and mass-produce the foldable lounge chair that also serves as functional wall art. As of noon Thursday, Benke still needed a little more than $11,000 to reach his goal.
