How will funding be used?
I've dedicated more than 2 years to the development of KRAINKN, and with your help I can make the final push to turn it into a reality! Funds will go directly towards tooling costs, injection mold casting, and components. I'll also be setting up manufacturing and quality control process in Minnesota. Additional funds will all go toward essential expenses and development of breakthrough new features and accessories.
When will KRAINKN ship?
We anticipate shipping the first KRAINKN products ordered through Kickstarter as early as October 2012.
