The production plan

  • The funding money will be used to buy raw materials for the case production (aluminium, stainless steel, titanium). 
  • I'll need to pay for the actual production to the selected and approved suppliers (who done the prototypes you see here).
  • The special rubber rings must be produced to make EternalCase waterproof. 
  • And, sure, the flash drives covered by rubber must be ordered. 
  • Final assembling may be done by me equipped with silicon glue pistol to keep flash drive inside the case. 

I've registered http://EternalCase.com and made a test shop there. It will start working ONLY if the funding will be successful.

New crazy test passed: EternalCase & EternalCase flash drive survived in a concrete mixer with water & crushed stone! 

I have tested medical stainless steel and aluminium (prototype is done from usual aluminium which is 2 times weaker the aircraft one) cases. See before and after pictures below:

in order of appearence: steel, not affected aluminium, aluminium. The rubber ring is handmade and not really accurate - the one for final product will be a way better and its picture will be available in a week

Risks and challenges

Every project has some risks. And I'll do my best to avoid all of them.

Sure, the biggest risk is funding - I can't start the production without it. There are so many great projects here on KickStarter so, to be successful, I need your help in spreading the information about EternalCase between you friends and relatives.

If the funding will be successful, I have to make a lot of EternalCases according to the collected pledges. I have selected 2 manufacturers and got the prototypes done - so I'm confident about the quality and the production terms.
