About this project

EVERYONE ON EARTH HAS THEIR VERY OWN FLOWER!! 

Myflower is an online virtual 3D artistic flower which is created especially for you or someone you love (or a friend).  When you send one, we ask you to provide the name of the recipient and date of birth (or any special day you like)...we then use that information to "seed" the variation of the flower using something we call "virtual DNA" to alter the appearance/traits and generate an original flower.  No two different inputs will create the same flower.  Everyone will have a flower "fated" to them at the time we launch and it will be fun to get yours and compare it to your friend's.  Once received, these flowers can be used to personalize aspects of your virtual life as well as your real life.

THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!

This video is an early example of the quality that we have already been able to achieve with our flower generation.  We will continue to improve the visual quality right up to launch.

PROJECT GOALS

Primary Goal: as stated above. If we meet our target of $20,000, we will deliver all of the rewards earned and open the site to to the public.

Secondary Goal: If we get to $100,000 we will deliver the iOS/Android apps which will allow ALL Myflowers to be carried with their owners and have an increased level of 3D interaction through the touch screen.

Tertiary Goal: If we get to $250,000 Charles Normann will make Kevin Normann do jumping jacks on the Grand Canyon Skywalk wearing a silly wig or a dress or something. Special plee from Charles, "Please help me do this!"  :)

WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR...

We have built much of the technology and a basic web-site to order and deliver flowers.  We have also obtained the www.myflower.com domain.  We need cash to complete our first Myflower genus,  pay for servers to generate the flowers, and to keep the website running while we get the word out.  We cannot launch until we get this money.  We are confident that a strong showing of support through Kickstarter will enable us to either grow organically or raise the funds we need to deliver on a much bigger experience.  We currently have no expectations to obtain this money any other way.  We are banking on the Kickstarter community.

    KICKSTARTER FLOWER :

    A special limited-time "collector's" Kickstarter flower, which will only be available through Kickstarter. If we are successful in launching and the dream of Myflower becomes a reality, these will be more valuable because of how rare the flower is. Eventually, when the flower garden is implemented, these flowers will have a special advantage to their garden which cannot be received any other way.
