15 Crazy/Awesome Kickstarter Projects (PHOTOS)

If you're not familiar with Kickstarter, let us give you a quick introduction. Basically, people who need funding for a creative project post a short video and description of their idea, and users on the site are able to donate to make that project happen. The ideas cover a vast spectrum - anything from hip hop festivals to indie comic books.

The funny part? Some of the things people come up with are completely ridiculous and/or crazy and/or awesome. Seriously. The world's largest jockstrap? Come on.

We dug through the Kickstarter archives and found the 15 craziest and most awesome projects on the site. Want to see a lifesize RoboCop statue erected in Detroit? An armband solar generator? Sure you do. Check them out below!
