                                                     MODO

                                       MOdular Desktop Organizer

Introducing Modo (Patent Pending)

Modo stands for "Modular Desktop Organizer". Modo is an easy to use addition to your desktop. You can customize Modo to fit your storage and organizational needs. Modo's strength is in its ability to adapt to any environment and accommodate a large variety of objects you use daily.

Why Modo?

We found that most traditional desk organizers didn’t offer enough flexibility, were overly compartmentalized and forced your devices and equipment to conform to them. Modo is a fully customizable plug n organize system that will adapt/comform to whatever devices/equipment/technologies you use both now and in the future.

What is Modo made from?

We placed a premium on sustainable and durable materials. Modo consists of 2 materials - Bamboo - A natural warm material that is ecologically responsible and Aluminum - Matte finished aircraft grade aluminum. Modo is approximately 8in by 4in by 0.6in

Modo customized in 4 different ways

Protective Capacitive Caps

Each Modo set comes with protective caps. Not just caps BUT capacitive silicone caps so your pins can also be used as a stylus - Both long and short pins. Each Modo set will have 10 protective capacitive caps.

MODO Options

Here are the options for the different Modo pledges:

Modo comes with 1 bamboo board, 2 Modo cork balls, 1 Modo band, 10 protective capacitive pin caps and choice of black or silver matte pins

Using Modo?

With Modo you now have endless combinations for customization. Plug the aluminum pins into any combination and you are ready to go (examples in the video). There are 4 cable management channels and 3 USB flash drive slots. Modo can be used to organize anything from pens, letters, paper clips, push pins, USB flash drives, CDs, sticky note pads, charging and sync cables, phones or tablets (with or without a case) and much much more. Modo blends in easily at home or work.

Next Steps for Modo?

To make Modo durable, high quality, and cost-effective we have partnered with a manufacturer that has been instrumental in the creation of many top brands. Together we have developed several fully functioning final prototypes and have finalized our production plans. We are now ready to mass produce Modo and we are asking for your support to raise funds for the manufacturing processes.

How will the funds be used?

The funds raised will be utilized for the development and manufacturing of Modo production tooling/molds, packaging design, manufacturing and meeting MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) requirements of our manufacturers. The past 8 months have been filled with designing Modo, materials testing, prototyping and building relationships with key manufacturers.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

When manufacturing any product there are always unplanned variables that spring up. At BAS we have spent the last 8 months testing, designing, modifying and retesting Modo. After many early samples and test models we have made 3 fully functional final product prototypes with our manufacturer. We believe that by communicating effectively with our backers and providing regular updates we will be able to set right expectations and produce an exceptional Kickstarter experience for all involved. We also have a manufacturer that has a wealth of experience manufacturing similar products. We have the right team and with your help we will bring Modo to the market successfully and on time.
