I'm looking for a cool gift for my brothers housewarming party. He's into like techy stuff and gadgets. He had that planetarium on his ceiling as a kid so thought this would be pretty awesome (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/starsailor-live-brings-the-skies-into-your-bedroom-technology#/), but i've never bought anything from indiegogo, is it reliable and do you think it's appropriate to give since they'll have to wait to receive it? Anyone see something like this before?

Welcome to the Best Buy Support Online Forum Community! I’m happy that you found us, and decided to post to get some advice.
A few things to consider, or to look into when purchasing online on a site you’re not sure about.
To be honest this is something that I’d personally wait until it hits the mainstream market to purchase. Since it’s in the prototype stage the release could get delayed, and initially there will not be much support for it. Once it hits mainstream markets some of the kinks would be worked out.
You’re more than welcomed to visit our Best Buy Ignite page. It’s basically a host page that displays new products like the one you’ve found plus you can follow the categories you’re interested in most!
If you’re looking for some great home warming gifts these are my favorite suggestions.
-Bluetooth Speakers: Music really does make the world go around. Try an interactive speaker like Amazon’s Echo or Alexa? Or a simpler one like UE’s Megabooms.
-Virtual Reality Glasses: VR Parties are very real thing now. Let me tell you they can get pretty fun(ny)!
-Smart Home Items: I personally love smart home items. My favorites are the Nest thermostat, and the Ring Door Bell (especially if he shops online a lot.)
-Drone: Does his new place have a backyard? Or park nearby? It may help him meet his new neighbors!
-Tech Toys: Robots. Do I need to say more? It could create a good conversation piece, and something he could show off to his friends when they come over.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding any of the items you may be interested in, and I’d be happy to see how I may be of further help.
