About

PENMOTO HAS RELAUNCHED - 
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1107850856/penmoto-improved-and-relaunched

You found the PenMoto™ launch page! 

Thanks for visiting and watching the short video. 

Objective

We need your help to fund the tooling for PenMoto, prove marketability, and develop a network of beta testers & long term patrons.  We will be tooling and manufacturing PenMoto in the USA.  It is essential that PenMoto funds $40,000 to prove demand and marketability.

The following images are of prototypes that best represent the different pledge levels offered.  Please, check back to comment and vote on posted updates.

Full-Round Ring with Snap-On Coupler Prototypes  

Overview

PenMoto can be used with many writing instruments and other handheld implements.  We have designed many versions and styles in a variety of materials. 

For the Kickstarter launch we are limiting PenMoto to the following pens or styli:

Pilot G2 Pen

Capacitive Stylus

Wacom's Intuos4 and Bamboo Pens

Description of PenMoto

PenMoto consists of a ring for the user's finger and a coupler for the pen or stylus.  PenMoto's function is based on the powerful attraction of small neodymium magnets.  This also allows the pen or stylus to be easily detached for free-handed use. 

Ring

The ring fits on the user's dominant index finger with the magnets facing the thumb.  Below is an example of the plastic flex-split ring design which allows the ring to flex on the user's finger.

Full Round Ring and Coupler with Wacom's Intuos4 pen in Sterling Silver

Fit and Sizing

Both the split and full-round ring styles are sized to the user's dominant index finger using standard American Ring Sizes.

PenMoto works best when the ring fits comfortably; once the ring has warmed to the hand it should fit snug and remain stationary.

There are multiple methods and ring sizing websites.  For the best results we recommend visiting your local jewelry store to size your dominant index finger.

Your ring size will be collected during confirmation of shipping addresses, once the pledging is completed.

Coupler

The plastic couplers feature a snap-on design.  This allows quick assembly and easy adjustment for comfort, fit and function.  The metal couplers are a full-round design that slip over the pen body.
