WOW, so we funded! That was an amazing ride. We wouldn't have done it without you amazing backers that tweeted, and blogged, commented, encouraged and just amazed us. It is quite a thing to have 1,000 people vote with amazon to support a project that has been SO looooong in the making.
The website www.penmoto.com should have a splash page up this weekend thanks to the amazing backer Benjamin Mace. This page will soon be locked so any shipping issues or preorders will have to be routed through the website. You can also contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PenMoto is a magnetic ring that quickly retrieves and stores a pen making it possible to transition from writing to typing with the simple flick of a finger. The self-sizing ring and coupler adapt to nearly any pen or stylus, and is ideal for a Wacom pen.
PenMoto is ambidextrous and detachable for free-handed use. Benefits include increased efficiency, accuracy and stability with multi-touch gesturing on a variety of electronics, including computers, iPads, calculators and more. Writing, editing and computing will be easier than ever with PenMoto. And more fun.
Dramatically improved and simplified...
We took a chance by cancelling the previous funding's momentum, but this is what we improved.
-Self-Sizing Rings (no need to measure your finger)
-Adaptive couplers for nearly any Pen or Stylus
-Stylish, Lighter, and more Comfortable
-Four alternatives for Manufacturing
PenMoto’s concept originated after I purchased a Wacom for photo editing. I loved the functionality and performance of the Wacom, but often found myself searching for its pen after typing or answering the phone. I needed a method to keep my Wacom more accessible and secure.
So my brother and I got some masking tape and magnets and began experimenting.
Four years later, our masking tape and magnet invention has evolved into an actual usable product. Your support, word of mouth and pledges will fund PenMoto’s tooling and ultimate success. Any feedback and/or contribution would be greatly appreciated.
Polished Aluminum Prototype (requires custom sizing, will offer w/ enough interest) http://youtu.be/4LPEYYyzJpg
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We designed PenMoto to be quick and enjoyable, to improve your creative process, or simply speed your workflow. But, we need your pledge on kickstarter to get the tooling funded. Thanks for pledging and passing the word!
Thank you for your interest in PenMoto!
