About


[Disclaimer] This is THE Ultimate Kickstarter campaign! In this campaign, you will not see any high-technology for Drone, Robot, IA, Blockchain or Internet-of-things application, and pushed by an exciting promotional video and beautiful photos produced by a professional advertising-communication agency! No, you won't see that. In this campaign, you will have the opportunity to solve a REAL Problem. Are you ready? Let's go ...

Problem

My brother, sister-in-law and their 2 children (3 and 5 yo) moved to a new apartment, at the 6th floor of a building without elevator! 

I witnessed her suffer while climbing the stairs with the children, the pushchair and the shopping bags ... and I promised her to invent something to make her life easier. (before you laugh, yes, of course, I helped her!).

Solution

Currently, you can't find a shopping trolley with six-wheel assisted by an electric motor. So what are we waiting for? Let's invent this damned thing!

We have a lot of things assisted with an electric motor such as bikes or kick-scooters, but we don't have anything that can help grand-mothers, mothers and everyone else to climb stairs! 

This is has to change. Join the REVOLUTION!

Goal

The goal of this crowdfunding campaign is to challenge the idea and to create a functional prototype. As I am nor an industrial designer neither an engineer, the money of this campaign will allow to hire a design and engineering  consulting company and to get patent. 

Then, we will launch a second crowdfunding campaign to produce and commercialize the electric shopping trolley.

Risks and challenges

Risk: as I am not an engineer nor an industrial designer, I have to hire good professionals to help me design and make a functional prototype. I can fail.
Risk: any shopping trolley manufacturer can read this crowdunding page and make their own electric trolley.
Risk: maybe a patent has already been filled for a such electric shopping trolley. The money will also serve to hire an industrial property consulting firm to check this point and then to fill a patent for us.
Risk: the target of this project is old buildings with more than 3 floors and without an elevator. Now, in nearly all western countries, the law says that every new building with floors must have an elevator. Therefore, the potential market is not a growing market. But a such electric shopping trolley can be used for any other urban stairs.
