US crowd-funding super-site Kickstarter is set to join our sometimes-sunny shores and open up to British-based innovators and entrepreneurs this autumn.

Home to many crowd-sourced successes such as the Pebble Smartwatch and a fair share of various upcoming games, the site which helps turn these ideas into reality will accept submissions from outside the US later in the year.

The company shouted about it too on its Twitter account:

Look forward to helping make people's visions into a reality later this year with good old pounds sterling, and maybe even come up with your own groundbreaking idea too. [Twitter via TechRadar]
