Solar Pocket Factory in NYC, with 35 hours to go!
35 hours to go! And we need your help to make a final leap into the future of microsolar.
If you suddenly find a few pieces of loose change in your pocket, please consider making those solar energy pieces of change. If you find yourself sitting at a bar next to a beautiful guy/girl/rubber tree with nothing to say, we recommend the Solar Pocket Factory as a great ice breaker! And if you find yourself with a piece of torso-width cardboard and a pocket full of sharpies on Madison Avenue, make that "Solar Pocket Factories are multiplying....run!!!!!!" sandwich board poster you always dreamed of.
Spread the word about the new Arduino Shield reward. And spread the word about Solar Pocket Kits and the Solar Pocket Book. We aren't going to let this campaign trickle to an ending. We are aiming for the moon - - the $100K stretch goal of opensource lasers seems impossible, but remember -- 'impossible' means 'solar energy fantasy' in latin.
Ok. That is not true. Please help us anyway. Help us accelerate this Kickstarter in the last 35 hours into orbit!
p.s. To garner a bit more support, the Solar Pocket Factory traveled to New York City last night. We took in a Broadway show, got some great Argentian ice cream on Bowery Street, and showed off some solar manufacturing karate chops in Brooklyn.
Here, for your viewing pleasure, is "Solar Pocket Factory goes to New York City".
Thank you again everyone for your incredible support. And thank you New York Police Dept. for not tasing me.
