Hardware products on Product Hunt?

Hi guys! Could you share some input on launching a hardware product on Producthunt? It feels like the great majority of products are apps these days. I'm not sure if we should even try? We have our photo/tech product on Kickstarter (https://bit.ly/3FdIe4l) at the moment and are considering launching it on Producthunt as well. Thanks for your help!

FYI link isn't working for me - takes me to a 404 🤔 I don't see why a physical product wouldn't work if it appeals to the audience here - which is mostly developers (not all of course - I'm not!). There are a load of tech products launched here - phones, tables, headsets, gadgets etc. - they all perform pretty decently. You might want to have a browse through and try and get in touch with the makers about their launches and see what you can learn to help yours.

@kingsizefixit the link is not working, but I managed to find your product "Unleashed 22" and WOW! It's super cool! Congrats for already reaching your goal on Kickstarter! ProductHunt is a platform where interesting products get upvoted. I believe your product would appeal to so many people, even though it's physical! So I don't see why shouldn't you post it here too. Good luck with your launch! 👏

@johnnyfekete Oh, seems like the link was shortened automatically. Just replaced it with a shorter link myself, now it should work. Thanks for the feedback. I think we'll just go for it!

I see no reason why it wouldn't work. Even if it's not something they can get their hands on immediately if it's something cool people will upvote it.
