About this project
Do you have a name for your car or bicycle? Do you ever find yourself talking to inanimate objects? Do you yearn for the day when household robots are as common as refrigerators?
Then FridgeBots are for you!
I have made prototypes by hand but the process is slow and messy. In order to be reasonably priced and consistently high quality, FridgeBots need to be made in a large quantity and printed and die cut by a professional print shop.
I have a manufacturer ready to go. FridgeBots will be printed on 30 mil heavy duty magnetic sheet. This is the type of magnet sometimes seen on the outside of commercial vans and trucks; they are very strong and durable. Each perforated sheet is 8 1/2" x 11".
The Starter Sheet:
The 10 Additional Face Elements Sheet:
The Robot Accessories Sheet:
Fridgebots will be printed, die cut, and shipped to you in time for the holidays.

I know the project goal seems high, but it is set at my estimated break even point. Making custom dies is expensive. I also chose to use high quality magnetic sheet and keep the whole process here in the United States.
