New Project!

Hello Kickstarter Backers!

Well, it’s been a crazy and amazing last few months, and we’re finally ready for another Kickstarter project! We’re calling it the Cosmonaut. It is a minimal, wide-grip capacitive stylus for touch screen devices. Here is the project page.

The idea for this project actually came out of a blog post that Dan did right after the Glif Kickstarter campaign ended. We realized that the perfect stylus for an iPad should be designed to feel like a dry erase marker. Some people seemed to agree, so we thought hey, maybe this can be our second project. We’ve been working on it for the past few months and we have finally arrived at something that we are really excited about.

Like the Glif, we’ll need your help to make this project a reality. We’re trying something new this time around, by instituting a “pay-as-you-wish” payment model, a la Radiohead. Essentially, if you want to become a backer, you can pledge as little or as much as you feel this product is worth to you. We’re very interested to see how this pricing model works out.

Thank you all so much for your continued support. We’re very fortunate to be able to do what we love, and it’s all because of you guys.

Tom & Dan

PS. There is a very very small percentage of you that have not received your Glifs. This is most likely because we never got your shipping address via the survey we sent out. If you are logged into Kickstarter, there should be a banner at the top of the page that says “Action Needed!” You can fill out the survey from there, and we will get your Glif shipped out ASAP. If you did fill out the survey, but never received your Glif, please email us at and we will make things right. Thanks!

      How is this different from the Spider Holster ? Is it an improvement of the Spider design?
