About

A stationery to define the future -- Dreamer stylus. No matter you use paper or iPad, a whole new stylus is going to bring you to the future road of inspiration.

Elegance and future

Think, stylus in the future

Writing and drawing are the nature of the human. Either on the paper or on iPad, you need a pen to release your inspiration. What will a pen in the future be? Pen+ stylus may be one of the answers.

To design the stationery in the future is a great dream to us. We bring it to Kickstarter, hoping to share our dream with more people. Therefore, we call the stylus the DREAMER.

Use button to switch your inspiration

The most important feature of the DREAMER is its button. The design idea is from Apple Inc, as the button on iPad, iPhone, and iPod. It is unique, futuristic. By pushing the button, you switch between two modes of the stylus, therefore switch your inspiration of creation.

Elegance of the metal

Just as Apple is proud of its unibody production technology, DREAMER's body is made from an entire piece of aerospace grade 6061 aluminium using CNC precise machine tool. Therefore, it looks elegant and attractive.

Different feel

With more subtle changes, your hand will feel the differences such as the location of button to use flexibly, diameter of stylus to reduce mis-operation, unique design of the cone-shape Stylus Tip to improve the accuracy of writing, also the proper weight and smooth curve. Everything is just perfect. No matter how you use it, the experience is enjoyable.

Better carry

Different from the traditional stylus carry we add a strap on DREAMER. It is made of high quality rubber, connected with Smart Cover, so that the DREAMER and iPad are connected as well. Other than Smart Cover, other brands of iPad covers are compatible with DREAMER, which is easy to carry and fashionable.

MINI DREAMER to share more

There is a great design that we hope to share with more people. We also designed a whole new MINI DREAMER made of eletroconductive plastic material. It is lighter, more colorful, yet not as expensive. It comes with beautiful strap, fitting with iPad as well as iPad mini.

DREAMER helps DREAMER

Everyone who promotes ideas on Kickstarter is a DREAMER. Everyone who reviews the program is also a DREAMER. It is your support and help that make those dreams come true.

On our project DREAMER, our team has been developed for more than seven months, and  put in a big amount of money in development, now we have a few prototypes. We need around 35,000 US dollars for later development. This amount is going to be used for a few detail adjustments, development of product mould, and the deposit for  volume production in the factory.

As you know, just as Apple set its production factory in China, where you can find great manufacturing production ability. We have competent business partners in China. We will work together and you will be surprised to see our final product.

Glory takes time. We are confident to set our goal -- to get a whole new DREAMER on the very beginning of the February 2013. Please spread the words and share with your friends.

Thanks.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is an excellent platform, providing us with opportunities to demonstrate our project and with chances to succeed. But there are also risks and challenges ahead.

The main challenge is how we make a satisfactory product from a design concept. It requires collaboration with factories. Fortunately, one of our team members is quite familiar with China. She has 10 years of experience in manufacturing industry. She already has a fixed industry partner, who has great experience in manufacturing, especially in metal machining. It is one of the world-leading factories, which guarantees to provide best quality products in set schedule.

Our team is full of passion in project DREAMER. We already finished the prototype development, and already have a few samples. Now it needs some tuning. First of all, our unique button design and some internal structures need to be adjusted to ensure the optimal user experience. Next, we need to adjust the stylus tip,including wear resistance, smoothness, hardness, to guarantee the best writing result.

It is more important to contact all supporters, since it helps us solve unexpected problems. We will contact supporters and reply all comments and messages as soon as possible.

We are confident because we are DREAMERS.
