  COTO promised to get back to kickstarter - and here we are again! First of all we want to thank for all our Backers from first project, You really helped us and motivated for new creations. In last half year we gathered lot of new ideas, some of which already turned into prototypes, and  others still in development stage. Now we are here to present you new and unique item - COTOCUBE!

      It's first in the world SOLID CARBON FIBER gaming die. We believe that :  

      1) Everyone who’s familiar with carbon fiber – will simply love it! These (gaming) dice are super light, cool looking and pleasant to touch.

      2) Even if you haven’t heard about carbon fiber yet, it won’t take long to get charmed by it. Interesting layer lines on one side and weaved stitches on another followed by beautiful marbled pattern that catches light and reveals it’s deep, various look.

      3) Those of you who like performance and precision, will be fascinated too. COTOCUBE is made from solid carbon fiber sheets: perfectly shaped and carefully machined. You will feel it from the very first touch!

       4)  Since carbon fiber is not just some cheap ordinary plastic, it can become a classy and exclusive decoration in your office.

       .

        Already excited? Wait a second, we have something more... MATRIX dice

Photo made in dark place with long exposure, don't expect dice to glow that strong in direct light.

      Yes, MATRIX! It is glow in the dark carbon fiber dice! Our first prototype was slightly tuned to give it a more exciting look. We added luminescent inserts which glow in the dark after being exposed in the sunlight or any other light. The inserts are nontoxic and can be recharged many times, it's same material  we  find in some expensive watches and toys.   

      At the moment we can offer only BRIGHT GREEN inserts, but we set stretch goals for other inserts colors. All MATRIX dice backers will have an option to choose the color they want ( ATTENTION : ONLY MATRIX DICE BACKERS).

   For those who would like to have a perfectly shaped cube, we offer CARBON FIBER CUBE (not dice). It's a little bit bigger compared to dice (18x18x18mm) and does not have any holes machined. Below you can compare them between each other :

      How does Your support help us? 

      First of all, to make dice for reasonable price, we need to buy materials in wholesale to reduce manufacturing costs, especially carbon fiber is very expensive, and this time we need a lot of it. First part of funds will go for materials, another for machining, packing and shipping. If we will reach our stretch goals, we will be able to give you more choices in glow colors and when second stretch goal will be reached - all dice will get nice, solid box'es. Each additional fund will help us to improve our tooling setup, which in turn will affect our future project quality and cost.  

     Your support in every our project will help us to create whole collection of unique accessories.

Risks and challenges

Probably it is the most relevant paragraph for backer after he has found our project interesting.
We made enough to be sure about this project. We have a lot of practice with working with carbon fiber and other composites, we have also established a strong relationship with our materials suppliers, and chosen not one, but few cnc machinists to be sure about COTOCUBE production. We are prepared not only theoretically, we made few dozen of experimental dice and all of them came out perfect.
We are feeling confident as we already have experience with complete Kickstarter project which passed well and smoothly.
This time we please you to add £3 to any pledge, and your dice (or cube) will be shipped with tracking to avoid any unneeded trouble.
