About this project
Wood Kubb is the perfect match between computer hardware and natural material.
The computer is an everyday object and we are used to see a huge annoying PC tower under the desk. It is often ugly, noisy, unaesthetic and means a loss of space.
We want to change your daily life and boost your mood. The goal was to find a solution for each of these issues. First, we drastically reduced the size and develop partnership with Intel to have the perfect motherboard.
Afterwards, we optimized the space available by using the latest technologies to reach the best performances. You have the choice between the different configurations we elaborated. We chose configurations for desktop but also with an increased power and enhanced processor, greater storage and memory.
To finish, we designed a wooden little cube shape to receive the hardware. Cabinetmakers used first-class tree species as ash and elm. The incredible thing is that each computer is unique: it’s always different pieces of tree, different wood veins and natural color variations.
From design to creation, everything is made in France. The quality is our priority and we warranty your Wood Kubb for 3 years.
We are proudly offering every backer a 3 year program for our products. If you have any problem with your computer in the next 3 years, we will fix it or replace it for you! No matter where you are on earth.
BLEUJOUR is a french company that launched its first new concept of PC in December 2014.
Mr. Jean Christophe Agobert, the CEO, has been in IT business since more than 25 years. He serves as a Director of Rouchon Industries Inc (RCHN :OTC US) and as independent advisor for European Operations. Mr Agobert is the co-founder and Executive VP of BACATA (1997) recently acquired by Global Distribution Group. Prior to that, he co-founded Blue River Systems a major wholesale distributor of electronic equipment in France with sales in excess of $130 million USD and was working also working as gaming software development....
Since many years Mr Agobert is passionate about technology, design and French Culture of Art...and the idea of the Wodd Kubb came when he was in mountain hiking and spending time away from the big cities. He imagined to bring back a piece of nature at home or office, and the idea of wood Kubb was born.

The wood kubb is a miniature computer. He looks like a design object but it's also a media center next to your Tv, or a computer on your desk.
There are all the connector that you need, with 4 USB and the possibility to have even 3 screens ! Kubb has a mini-displayPort, a mini-HDMI but also the Widi that permit to have a long distance screen (around 394 inch is acceptable).
We made 3 different types of Wood Kubb. Each Kubb is a unique model, with different effect depending the wood. You have a model with White Ash, another with Brown Ash ans the last and the more precious, with Elm. You can choose you Kubb depending to your taste, and whatever if there change, you can change the shell ! The wood kubb is compatible with our others Steel Kubb Collection ( http://www.kubb.eu/en/ ).

What you get ?
Risks and challenges
We did R&D, many prototype, market study and we also took in account feedback to improve our products. Thanks to all this things we are proud and sure about this project but we need you. We need your help to launch this innovative product.
We fully understand the entire process and have learned from past experiences, when we launched our first product in December 2014. The wood kubb use almost the main electronic device than the Steel Kubb that we already sell.
For the different shell, all the prototype has been create so we know “how” to make them, “how many” we can make, and “how much” we need.
The biggest risk to shipping on the stated delivery date is their production capacity or scheduling other work at the time of our actual order. To prevent this risk we gave a longer estimated shipping date but are able to guarantee the dates. All orders will be produced and shipped out by December 15th, 2015 to get them delivered by Santa Claus !!
