**Para los amigos en Colombia les tenemos una buena noticia! Debido a que nuestras familias viven en Cali, estaremos enviando la lampara sin costo alguno, cuando elijan un "reward" o premio, solo adicionen $5 dolares de envio interno en Colombia. (Esto lo puedes hacer cuanto ingresas el monto)
A DIY PARAMETRIC LIGHT FIXTURE
Blime is a DIY Parametric light fixture that can be assembled at home and shipped flat. Because its design is parametric and fabricated with a laser cutter, Blime can be easily customizable. For kickstarter we are offering 24 colors in card stock paper and a white version in 100% recycled and recyclable vellum.
Blime’s form is derived from the audio of a friends gathering in a living room space and its largest diameter represents the gut of this party.
Blime is a byproduct of the audio taken in a living room setting during a gathering of friends and scripting technology that used generative algorithms. We essentially take the audio, visualize it and use the highest and lowest peek to generate the proportion of the belly.
The form, given by the highest and lowest point of the audio data produces a revolving surface similar to a teardrop. Sublime is the process in which a solid quickly transforms into gas state without passing through a liquid middle state. Blime is a representation of that missing state in the form of a teardrop.

The Light cord
The cord is not something we designed and that is why we give you the option to pledge for it or not. If you do, we will include an IKEA light cord, but you can get this on your own. In fact, we recommend you get the cord that better fits your needs.
We are working hard to design a packaging that we can be proud of, but we really need your help to take our prototype to the next level, laser cutter technology is very inefficient when it comes to high volume and we do not want to increase the price. So we need your help to create an awesome box for an awesome product!

We essentially need your support to continue developing Blime, including packaging costs and materials research. We would really like to see blime in many different materials for different type of spaces.
We also see Kickstarter as the best platform to launch Blime and support our dream to make it a reality.
