The Black Plague

Well, it was bound to happen.  After putting in four or five big days of showing Bosavi at the climbing gyms and the Maker Faire I got sick.  Even though I am pretty sure I have the plague, I would like to thank everyone that came out to see the prototypes.  Everyone has been really impressed and enthusiastic.  Seeing your excitement has been awesome and is validation that all of this hard work has been worth it.  Bosavi is going to be the best headlamp ever built!

It looks like we are close to finalizing a manufacturing agreement.  So hopefully you will see some pictures of molds being cut and first-articles being fit together soon.  

For now, please feast your eyes on another Power Animal entry:

This was the original drawn by Laura.  And below is what it might look like on a t-shirt:

For those of you that weren't at our launch party you can still enter your t-shirt ideas.  We will have a vote on June 1st for the winner and print out a couple of shirts for the winner and some friends.  If you would like to enter you can download the icon here:

Print it out.  Draw a new Bosavi power animal and take a photo with your phone.  Email me a picture and I will turn it into a vector image.

The "Three Wolf" and "OWL" t-shirts are ready now.  I will send a survey asking what sizes and styles you want.  If you are a Touchstone gym member they will be waiting behind the counter at Berkeley Ironworks by this weekend.  I am trying to get it worked out so that the computer will beep when you check in, letting you know to pick up your shirt.  Stay tuned for an update on that.

On another note, we crossed 26k today!  A-mazing!  Please help this project keep moving forward.  As backers the best thing you can do for this project is to share a link to the page ( with your friends via e-mail or facebook.  Even contributions of $1 are extremeley helpful in increasing our visibility on Kickstarters search engine.  And be sure to like Bosavi on facebook.

Thank you all again.  Even when I am sick, I am still feeling great thanks to all of your support.
