Project Summary/Status

The Wallet Capo is exactly what the title says it is - a capo that fits in your wallet. If you play guitar, you will probably already know what this is, but for those of you who don't, a capo is a device that one uses to change keys on a guitar without tuning the strings. Capos are useful, but notorious for getting lost. So we've taken the concept and made it into something that is as easy to take along with you as a guitar pick.

Right now the wallet-capo is still in its beta phase. In the coming months we plan to evolve the product to be laser cut and more robust. The first Beta Capos to be shipped out will be primarily made in house from our 3D printer. There is no need to worry about the finish on the neck of your guitar due to the heavy wall abrasion resistant heat-shrink applied to both sides of the wallet-capo.

It's all in the details

We've topped the project off with gorgeous packaging and instructions, even the envelope used for shipping is finished off with a wallet capo logo stamp of approval.

 Design

The wallet capo sits 3mm thick, fitting snuggly in even the slimmest wallets. It is designed to fit most standard sizes guitars, and comes with multiple slots for size adjustment.

Laser Cut Prototype
Laser Cut Prototype

Robin is a freshman at Champlain at college where she works as a technician at the maker lab and studies software engineering and mathematics. Along with helping out with prototyping support such as the laser cut capo above, she also plays the banjo.

Risks and challenges

Upgrading Tooling - If we are going to fulfill the laser-cut capo orders we need to revamp our production process. Although the 3D printer is convenient to prototype and produce beta products, it has its limitations. A laser cutter would produce stronger, more robust Capos in a fraction of the time.

Team Building - Since both of us are in school, we will be expanding our team to a larger group of individuals to make sure we can meet the production demands of our Kickstarter campaign.
