Thanks Bill, for me, crowdfunding has been hit or miss but (luckily) more hits than misses. The concept seems good and it will not require any technology that does not already exist. (which is a good thing)
After reading the campaign, the only thing that I did not see specified was the diameter of the induction element. To save money designers sometimes use an element just a few inches in diameter (I think that could work against the ideal evenly balanced bottom heat scenario).
I hope you get it as promised and I hope it works well and serves you for a long time.
