The Handheld Dice Roller allows you to roll dice anywhere without them ever leaving your hand. This will allow you to play dice games in locations that you would not normally be able to. Simply Push! Shake! Release!
Push: Push down on the central button to unlock the dice from their current position.
Shake: Give the dice a good shake
Release: Releasing the button will lock the dice in their new position.
The Handheld Dice Roller comes in three colour combinations:
- Green and Grey
- Blue and White
- Grey and White
Why are the three dice red, blue and yellow? All Handheld Dice Rollers come with these three dice. The difference in colours allows for each die to be distinguished between rolls. eg Red=Player 1, Blue=Player 2 and Yellow=Player 3.
Why do the dice lock in place after you have released the central button? This holds your dice roll in position making this product portable and allowing you to roll dice in situations that you would not normally be able. eg bus, train, in bed and even upside down!
Can I use my own dice? Yes, just follow the below steps. For best results use 12mm six sided dice.
- Remove the thumb grip
- Loosen the central bolt with a 3mm Hex key
- Remove the side walls
- Replace with your own dice
Edit: You can also use other types of dice such as D8, D10, D12 & D20. It is also possible to use up to 6 x D6 dice as well. For a video and a better explanation check out update #1.
How do I choose which of the three colour combinations I want? This information will be collected when the funding finishes and surveys are sent out.
Dimensions: 72mm (2 7/8") Wide x 66mm (2 5/8") Deep x 70mm (2 3/4") High
Please note that there might be some slight colour variations between the products in the photos shown and the final products due to different suppliers/batches. I will try to avoid this as much as possible.
In order to get this product to backers with as few delays as possible there will be no stretch goals.
Kickstarter is the perfect platform to be able to transform this original creation from an idea into an actual physical, fun product.
I will be using Australia Post to ship worldwide. Shipping costs are:
- United States / Canada: AU$8
- UK: AU$13
- Australia: AU$3
- New Zealand: AU$4
- Japan / Singapore: AU$7
- Rest of the world: AU$15
Shipping is the same cost for each reward. Whether you get 1 Dice Roller or 4 the shipping will be the same. Postage information will be collected when the funding finishes and surveys are sent out.
Risks and challenges
I have had much experience in the field of manufacturing, design and project management. I have seen many products go from design to production and then out to the customers. Because of this experience I am aware of many of the problems that can arise.
To reduce potential problems in delays and quality, all assembly and manufacturing of the product will be done in my workshop. Several of the suppliers are also local which helps to reduce problems with delays. However some of the parts are sourced from overseas which does make the product cheaper to purchase. As a backup I have local suppliers for some of the same parts if the need arises.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
