About

What is WRIGO?

WRIGO (Ree-Go) is a startup focused on revolutionizing the way you whiteboard. Time at the whiteboard is much too valuable to be wasted using traditional markers and erasers that have hardly evolved since inception. Our first product, WRIGO, is a revolutionary, patent-pending, whiteboard eraser that lets you Write and Erase as you Go! Never lose your whiteboard eraser again, with WRIGO it is always in hand!

WRIGO Features

WRIGO is not your average whiteboard eraser. 

Features:

  • Raised-angled felt eraser pad 
  • Easy entry marker port, for Expo-Style markers
  • Comfortable ergonomic grip
  • Push-up marker release
  • Cap holder
  • Strong rare-earth magnets (MAG version only)

The eraser pad is made of high-quality, washable felt for optimal erasing and useful life. WRIGO is designed to fit Expo-style markers - the best-of-breed in the dry-erase world. 

WRIGO MAG includes all of the above features plus super-strong rare earth magnets so it will stick to traditional magnetic whiteboards when not in use.

**Product images on this page are 3D printed prototypes; the WRIGOs we'll deliver with our first production runs will have a high quality, smooth finish.**

Why WRIGO?

We were tired of dealing with the frustration of using a whiteboard and never having an eraser around when you need one. With the WRIGO family of products, your eraser is always in hand and only a flick of the wrist away. 

It's time you revolutionize the way you whiteboard and quit wasting clean hands, perfectly good tissues, and Jimmy's sock. Join the WRIGO-Lution!

How do I WRIGO?

WRIGO, the original, is designed for traditional Expo-style markers. Simply load your marker into WRIGO, pop the marker cap on the end, and you're ready to Write, Erase, and Go! When you are done, simply place the cap back on your marker and store on the tray. 

WRIGO MAG has the same design and functionality of WRIGO and incorporates super strong rare earth magnets sticks to traditional magnetic whiteboards when not in use. You'll soon know what it's like to pick-up where you left off with WRIGO MAG! 

Who is WRIGO for?

WRIGO is for everyone who uses a whiteboard in virtually any setting. 

Never waste another tissue, sock, or minute when you need to erase a whiteboard.

WRIGO where you Go!
WRIGO where you Go!

WRIGO in the Classroom

 Portable whiteboards, markers, and erasers are a popular tools in the classroom, but why does it always feel like the kids need three hands to use them? For teachers with no tolerance for wasting time in the classroom - WRIGO is for you! 

WRIGO at the Hospital

Whiteboards abound, on every door up and down the hallways, in nurses' stations, and break rooms, all needing updates dozens of times throughout the day. Traditional erasers just don't cut it. Bring on the WRIGOs - STAT!! :)

WRIGO at Work

Whether delivering a presentation in the boardroom or brainstorming in the team room, time is money! Don't let your team waste time or risk looking foolish fumbling with the eraser that always seems to be out of reach - instead, Write, Erase, and Go confidently with WRIGO. We look forward to outfitting your entire office space with WRIGOs!

WRIGO at Home

Whether with the refrigerator to-do list or in the play room, WRIGO MAG and WRIGO are a great addition to keeping your your family organized and occupied. Say goodbye to those tiny, marker-cap erasers - WRIGO is ready to play with you!

WRIGO on the Go

WRIGO makes a great addition to any work bag or backpack for road-warriors who need to whiteboard. The unique design of WRIGO lets you store your favorite color marker and eraser together, forever <3.

Our Journey so Far

The Evolution of WRIGO
The Evolution of WRIGO

Late one in January 2018, while working at a whiteboard (naturally), after years of on-and-off contemplation of better ways to use dry-erase markers - a flash of inspiration, some painters tape and rubber washers came together and the first WRIGO prototype was born. Little did we know, those washers and tape were the start of the WRIGO-Lution. 


 Initial handmade prototypes allowed us to test various angles, grips, and loading designs. Later, 3D printed prototypes helped us perfect marker entry, locking, and overall fit for the models we're bringing to the Kickstarter community. 

 
 What's Next

We are working with manufacturing partners that will help us make our WRIGOs and have secured initial quotes for our first production runs. 

In order to make this happen, we need your help. We have put in some of our own funds to fuel the WRIGO-Lution, but the tooling required to create WRIGO and WRIGO MAG is expensive and we need the Kickstarter community to help us close the gap.

  • Tooling, Setup, Manufacturing ~$10,000+

Our Kickstarter page features part-3D printed, part-handmade prototypes, so you can rest assured that the products we ship will have a higher quality finish and feel.

With your backing, we'll be able to get to our first production run and take a BIG step towards our dream of making Write, Erase, Go! a reality :).

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to bring the first two products in the WRIGO family to life. We've worked hard through the design phase and leveraged rapid prototyping to get to this point as efficiently as we could - this is WRIGO after all.

We are working hard to lay out and execute an efficient, cost-effective production and distribution plan. That said, you know what they say about 'best laid plans'. We're doing everything we can to assure our best laid plans become a reality and will be sure to keep you informed if we need to change course.

We're committed to making a WRIGO a reality and are sooo excited to be partnering with the Kickstarter community to do so.

WRIGO-On!
