From carpentry to digital sketching digit keeps your pen, pencil or stylus readily available, on hand.
Digit is great for all ages!
Check out this quote from one of our backers!
"As a teacher, I saw the validity of William's invention immediately. For children with fine motor control difficulties and for those kids who find it difficult to use a "traditional" 3-sided or even molded pencil grip, The Digit could be a welcome answer. I believe it will make pencil and paper tasks easier and more enjoyable for those children."
HOW IT STARTEDWhile working in his shop, Scott continuously lost his pencils. His son William told him to start strapping his pencil to his finger. Nine months later digit was born!
QUALITY BY DESIGN
Unlike other pen and stylus ring holders the digit will direct the pen in a true writing and sketching position. We made sure it will fit comfortably on either your thumb or finger.
We spent a lot of time trying to determine the best ratio of elasticity and
rigidity to make sure the digit worked how we imagined.
It must be flexible enough to fit comfortably in any writing & sketching position, plus remain rigid enough to hold various writing utensils when not in use.
The final version is made out of an exact durometer thermoplastic, high density polyethylene plastic and adjustable nylon straps.
We are also offering digit in a range of colors to compliment your originality.
Color rubber options:
Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Grey
KICKSTART US THE REST OF THE WAY
So here is where you come in. We need your support to help us get to the finish line. We also want to hear your feedback! Since this is our first Kickstarter project we are very eager to find out what the community thinks of our product :)
WHERE THE FUNDING GOES
Again, we would like to thank you for any support to help our project come to reality! Here is a breakdown of why we need your support :)
· Production Tooling. Our design and development is complete we just need to build production injection moulding tools to build the Digit components.
- Our order quantity. We have a minimum order quantity that we will need to reach in order to make our product cost effective.
· Patent. We have filed a patent to protect our simple Digit concept from immediately being copied by other manufacturers around the world.
· Shipping, Customs and Taxes. This one is pretty simple, it's going to cost money to ship all of our product to us. By adding that into our pledge goal we can guarantee everything gets shipped on time without any financial hiccups.
Please pass our link around to your friends and family, every little bit helps!
NOTE: We expect a delivery date of December 2012
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We are a product development firm. We have over 25 years experience designing new and innovative ideas from concept to full production.
We have already sourced our manufacturing and all our tooling has been priced out.
We have tested the durometer of rubber that will work best for digit, we have prototyped all fittings and digit works exactly the way it is supposed to.
We are finished all designing & engineering aspects of digit, we just need help paying for the tooling and MOQ (minimum order quantity).
We will not make any profit on our first run. We know our numbers.
We are ready for production! :)
Yes. Digit has 4 different band settings and 2 different lengths of "stretchy" bands that come with each digit. So you'll be able to fit a childs finger, up to a large adult finger.
At this time, Kickstarter's guidelines prohibit multiple quantities as a reward, we currently offer a pair option known as the "ambidextrous pack" . However if you would like to order several we are working on launching an online store on our website www.digitstarter.com
