Gift ideas and new color options

Posted by Zhiping Chen & Daniel Aharoni (Creator)

Hey Everyone!

There has been quite a bit of interest in an all black and all white version of the Spinpod over the past few weeks. We placed an order for 3D printed versions of these colors and they just arrived today. The production version of the Spinpod will have a smoother, shinier finish but we think these prototypes look pretty great already. For this reason we will be adding the following color combinations: all black, all white, and a black body with colored (red, blue, or white) trim.

We have also been getting a lot of messages from backers wanting to order an extra Spinpod as a gift. Since all the Spinpods will be shipped out by the holiday season we think this is a great idea! A Spinpod makes the prefect gift for friends and family... Maybe you know a photographer, outdoor enthusiast or just someone that likes cool gadgets.    

If you would like to order extra Spinpods as gifts just add $59 ($69 for international backers) to your current pledge for each additional Spinpod (send us a message if you need to order more than 3). We will be keeping track of your pledge and making a note on your account... no need to do anything other than change your total pledge amount. And as our gift to you, we will include free gift wrapping! 

We have a little bit more than $3,000 to go to make the Spinpod a reality. Keep spreading the word with us and we know we will get there!

      @Steve, We will be sending out a survey after the Spinpod campaign ends. It will ask for your color choice and shipping information. Thanks for the question and supporting us!

      Ok, so dumb question: how do I specify the color for my Spinpods? This is the first Kickstarter project I've pledged so I don't know if there's some sort of followup form that I fill out where this information gets specified.

      Adding $59 to your pledge will get you an extra Spinpod system for a gift. This includes everything in the ESSENTIAL reward tier. So $59 will get you one Spinpod, one microUSB cable, and one mounting adapter. It does not include the landscape mount. You can add another $15 to your pledge if you would like to get an additional landscape mount. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

      You mentioned we could add an additional $59 to our pledge if we want another Spinpod to give as a gift. I'm and Early Bird backer at the $59 level. Would the additional Spinpods come the same way, i.e. with the mounting adapter, Micro USB cable and Landscape mount?

      @Rick Robertson, We actually use light pipes to transmit the LED light through the body of the Spinpod. This means that the LEDs are just as visible with a black or white body. Thanks for the question

      @Sebastian, I think the all white or white body with colored trim would both be fine under the hot sun.

      Will the indicator lights show through the black top properly? If not, a black base and ring with a white top would be cool too.

      thanks for the new colours! i think if using the spinpod for a 10h timelapse under the hot sommer sun, the all white version would be best ;)
