FAIRFIELD - Two Fairfield inventors have launched a successful Kickstarter campaign that's changing the way people play catch.

The ZipChip flying device was inspired by skipping stones.

It's initial goal on Kickstarter.com was $4,000, and it's now grown to over $100,000.

The Zip Chip Kickstarter campaign is running until July 17.  Although it's raised more than 26 times the initial goal, people can still back the project and get one.
