When Flatev, the Keurig for tortillas (i.e. a machine that makes tortillas from pods), debuted on the internet, we may have made fun of it a little bit, declaring it an invention that "no one was asking for" and highlighting some of the sillier quotes from its promotional video such as: "We believe we will change the world."
Well, boy do we have huevos rancheros on our face (side note: is it time for someone to invent the Keurig for huevos rancheros?) now. Flatev has, with 26 days to go in its 30-day Kickstarter campaign, raised $104,430, more than double its $50,000 goal. Turns out everybody wanted a Keurig for tortillas.
