For those not paying attention, the Nomiku is a kickstartered approach to launching an immersion circulator company. The exciting news is that the Nomiku team has exceeded its $200,000 goal. And by exceeded, I mean, they blew the doors off. They still have over a week left and they have raised a total of $309,073.
Most of the money raised has been through 829 people effectively pre-ordering the Nomiku at 299$. While I think the fact that geek new outlets covering this stuff overlaps nicely with the Nomiku's target market, I also suspect that this is really good news for anyone in the sous vide business.
Even if it means another competitor.
