About this project
Why carry a fidget spinner AND a wallet?
Introducing Revolution - the first combined wallet and spinner for a lightweight and unique EDC. Add £2 for Carbon Fibre caps! Live on Kickstarter for 7 just days!
Why Revolution? It seemed mad to carry more in your pockets than you need to. Sure, fidget spinners are great but often you don't need or want the added bulk. Bringing a ceramic spinner and premium minimalist wallet together into one product seemed a no-brainer.
The science says that spinners aid concentration and can help you deal with stress and anxiety. In our experience with Revolution, it gives you something to focus on other than rage at how slowly a supermarket queue is moving, or how long you have to wait for Netflix to buffer...
Available from launch in 3 different premium material options, Revolution is a truly minimalist wallet. Securely carry as many or as few cards as you want and even cash thanks to two parallel straps that keep everything held together. A wallet without limits thats just 5mm thick when empty!
With a 2.5mm hybrid ceramic bearing pressed into either side, you'll be able to experience a long spin time without the added bulk of a second item in your pocket. By adding or removing cards you can adjust the weight and experiment with different spin times.
Revolution comes in 3 standard options:
- Carbon Fibre / Fiber (depending on where you're from!)
Revolution comes as a half & half:
- Brass & Carbon.
- Carbon & Titanium.
- Titanium & Brass.
Revolution comes as a bundle:
- 2x or 3x Brass
- 2x or 3x Carbon
- 2x or 3x Titanium
- 1 of each
- 2 of each
If you would like to add Carbon Fibre buttons/caps to cover the bearings and increase spin time, please add £2 per set to your pledge amount!
Don't waste your time or pocket space carrying more than you need to - enjoy a revolutionary queuing experience with a lightweight, premium wallet AND a fidget spinner in one. Pick up a mix and match or a bundle set to tailor your wallet to suit any occasion.
Lightweight & Robust:
Brass - 55g
Titanium - 29g
Carbon - 11g
Ultralight, super thin and completely rigid. Revolution sits at just 5mm thick and protects all your cards from any damage while keeping them easy to access. A design this skeletal doesn't offer any RFID protection* (not even the Carbon, we checked!) but that has its own benefits - you don't need to remove a card to pay for something, just place the entire wallet near the card machine for instant contactless payments.
*RFID blocking cards/spacers are available from lots of places and make it really easy to separate different contactless cards or protect all of them if this is important to you. (We prefer super swift payments!)
Designed to fit all standard sized credit and business cards, you can carry cash, IDs and so much more.
Specially selected for Revolution, we're using 2.5mm thick hybrid ceramic bearings - one pressed into each half of the wallet. These high speed, long life bearings are corrosion resistant and super easy to clean thanks to their open cage design.
When inspiration strikes you have to act quickly - fortunately we had a lot of the manufacturing contacts already in place from other projects we've worked on or currently have in the pipeline! A few prototypes to dial in the size we wanted and Revolution was good to go...
Who are we?
Our names are Ben and Josh. We're currently 23 but have known each other since the first day of school when we were only 5 years old! Since leaving school we've gone in slightly different directions - one to study Mechanical Engineering (Ben) and the other abroad (Josh) - but we have stayed in constant communication because of our product design interests and ambition to setup a design firm together now we're both based in the UK again.
Our first Kickstarter project was for Ti, a Titanium EDC tool-ring and most recently we have been involved with the RP3d team to develop and launch The MicroMill.
The idea for Revolution came about very quickly as the result of a conversation we were having about already feeling like we had too much to carry in our pockets, without adding a bulky spinner in there too! The finished product is something we're extremely proud of and always gets a superb reaction from anyone that sees it.
With your support, not only will you get your own Revolution wallet(s), but also help be part of something bigger - to facilitate the development of some really exciting projects in the pipeline!
Risks and challenges
This, as they say, is not our first rodeo!
The supply chain for this product is very short indeed and we have an excellent working relationship with our manufacturers. In terms of quantities, we know how many can be delivered in the quoted lead time and will add more tiers with delayed shipping times if need be.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
