How did Octopushhhh come to life?
We thought there is no more room for tradition suction cups because of the introduction of micro-suction tape. We got all excited and ordered the tape from across the pond. However, the solution wasn't exactly something that we'd expected. So there we were, we decided to innovate and create a better and easier-to-use product for you. Isn't it nice to inject new creative cells into the something we are already familiar with and turn them into a whole new product with so much more possibilities? We are proud to introduce you to Octopushhhh.

Risks and challenges
There are always risks and challenges in this type of project because it's never been made before. We made plenty of mistakes on our previous projects but we have learnt a lot from them and are more experienced now. There will always be potential delays and unforeseen difficulties that come up with a new product.
The prototyping process gave us a very thorough understanding of the places we need to have streamline the process and produce the case at our target cost.
2. Time constraint:
Another challenge is that we need to juggle everything because some of us are full time workers. We have worked so hard to bring you Octopushhhh because we love and believe in what we do. We will do our best to meet the preset rewards fulfilment date.
3. Design and manufacture:
We hope you love Octopushhhh. A significant amount of time and resources have been invested into brainstorming, designing, and prototyping. However, mass production is a different story. There may be small adjustments and changes to be made to accommodate the machine. We will try to keep this to minimal, or even better, zero.
Customs in different countries may cause delay. We do not expect to see it, but there is a possibility.
Taking into account the risks and challenges, we will be giving our best effort to try to exceed expectations and deliver your high quality Octopushhhh in a timely manner.
