glow in the dark ?


Thanks to your amazing support, we doubled our target funding goal this week. This, in turn, triggered our first "stretch goal" bonus: a protective USB cap and premium (yet understated and recycled) packaging.

So how are we going to top "cap and cardboard" for the next stretch goal incentive!? Impossible? We don't think so. So here's the deal. We have received WAY more messages requesting Glow-In-the-Dark than we ever thought we would. Adding colors is fun, but our suppliers are already giving us the stink-eye for having too many colors. You see, lots of colors becomes a logistics problem for our molders, assembly team, and operations folks. However, we love our backers. So our next goal works like this: if we can get to at least 7,000 backers (there's already more than 3,000 of you), then we'll add a Glow-In-the-Dark color option. So tell your friends! We'll come up with more/better incentives throughout the project, but I felt I had to address these GID requests today.

Finally, I have some unrelated business to share with you. My brother-in-law, Steve, had a small (but great) role in the worst low-budget movie I have ever seen. Well, they made a sequel, and it's called Birdemic 2. So bad it's good? I think it'll be more like: so bad it's AWESOME.

As always: check the FAQ for new additions, and thank you again for your support!

Best regards,

      I'd love a glow-in-the-dark option. I'll tell my friends about the Twig.
