Happy New Year Everyone!
Today is the last day for ATOMS on Kickstarter! Our campaign ends at 11:59pm EST (UTC-5).
You Can Now Add Another ATOMS Set...
I know this is late in the game, with just 10 hours left, but we wanted to open up one more option to our backers...
We've had quite a few requests to get "two monster sets," or "two iOS sets." While Kickstarter is technically against volume sales (multiple units of the same item) to a backer, we understand that their intent is to prevent bulk wholesaling - some of which happened in the earlier days of Kickstarter.
Many of your requests have been driven by wanting to get ATOMS sets for each of your kids, or for you plus a friend, which we believe is well within the spirit of ATOMS and of Kickstarter. So today we're announcing that if any backers want to add additional ATOMS sets, you can do that too. Let's just keep the quantities reasonable - say max 4 of any set.
Sets and extra T-shirts can be added at their respective pledge level prices.
Since the math is getting a little complicated now, with the various upgrade options we've announced, we've created a simple spreadsheet to help calculate your new pledge total, if you want to upgrade.
Here's the URL for the spreadsheet: http://www.atoms-express.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/ATOMS_Pledge_Upgrade_Calculator.xls
Time to Call Your Celebrity Aunt or Uncle
You've all been chatting up ATOMS with your networks, your friends, and family, and that's been totally working to get us to waterproof + free Earthquake ATOMS (backers at $59 and over)! Thanks, you've been great!
We are closing in on that $175K goal, so we have a different kind of request for those who still want to help get the word out in these remaining hours.
If anyone has a personal relationship with a celebrity - engineer or anyone in a creative field, please reach out to them, and ask them to back ATOMS, even for just $1. Tell them how ATOMS could be potentially world-changing, and could be life-changing for kids interested in making creative things.
This will really help us when we go out to the venture capital community in the spring, and when we announce ATOMS for retail sales later in 2013, especially if they might be interested in continued engagement.
Thanks! 10 Hours to Go!
Michael and the ATOMS Team
ps: Here's a screen shot of the simple Pledge Calculator Spreadsheet, that you can download as an excel file here. If you don't have excel, it's easy to just work out on paper too.
