  1. Press!

    We got written up by Gothamist, Gadget Review, and Brooklyn Magazine! So that’s great, we could use the boost. If we want to hit our $50,000 goal, we’re going to need the press.

  2. The founder and CEO of Kickstarter backed us!

    Wow, that’s amazing. The founder and CEO of Kickstarter liked our project enough to back it. We’re also now a staff pick, which means we show up in the Staff Picks section and also get to put a fancy sticker on our page. Thanks Kickstarter!

  3. Kickstarter Launch

    We launched our Kickstarter and raised over a thousand dollars in the first day! Very exciting stuff. We set a low goal of only $10,000 because that’s the minimum we need to go to production, but we’re hoping to hit $50,000.

  4. All-Nighter Case Day

    Jarryd and William tried to pull an all-nighter to get the case printed in time for the Kickstarter campaign. The Flatiron School graciously allowed us to use their MakerBot Replicator Mini to print, but unfortunately the spool kept getting stuck so a team member had to hand-feed it filament for hours. William made it until 5:30am, Jarryd made it to 7am. Miraculously, despite the sleep deprivation and several botched attempts, the cases were printed successfully!
