Fishing is one of my favourite hobbies – and I love getting up into the Northern Territory for some Barra and true wilderness fishing. Nothing beats it – except maybe skiing…
We’ve still got 32 days to go, wbut already 38% funded after just 5 days, LOVE kickstarter!
Kickstarter is going to disrupt a lot of businesses! Previously an inventor like me would pitch inventions, then the toy company has a bunch of committee meetings, they then decide to evaluate it with an option, if they then proceed they offer a small prepayment and an eventual 5% royalty on wholesale. They cover all marketing and manufacture. Inventors can do really well with the right toy!
Speaking of mini sites, we now have www.laserblaster.com up, it redirects straight to the Kickstarter program but when (if) AppTag is funded it will redirect to a sales page.
AppTag Laser Blaster – Real World First Person Shooter!
For targeting we use a focused infrared beam and sensor for the ‘laser’ so it’s totally safe. Each unit has an IR sender and receiver, and the AppTag unit works together with an attached smartphone or iPod Touch
Finally got our mini site for the JaJa stylus up, I don’t have much there at present, but it will be apre-order page soon.
The JaJa was 261% funded through Kickstarter in the end, and we are really happy with the process. The JaJa Stylus Kickstarter program is still up, but preorders will be taken through our own site from now on.
Wow, Pleadges have skyrocketed today from the awareness brought about from Techcrunch!
