If you visit dwv.com, you'll quickly realize that despite the fun and quirky video, David Wiener is one serious designer and creator. With a mind that's perpetually in high gear, he realized that fidgeting helps him to focus, and a perfect palm sized nut and bolt did the trick. While the Romans might have invented it, David has aesthetically perfected it with certified, 24-karat gold plating.
This isn't some wimpy toy. At just over a pound, it's substantial. You’ll be amazed how fun it is to play with this thing. During phone calls, meetings, or when you just need some think-time. It feels good. It is a perfect corporate gift too (we can laser etch your logo on to the Golden Bolt). And, because it’s plated with 24-karat gold, it looks great anywhere you put it. Fidget devices will come and go, but the Golden Bolt is more than a fad. It is a functional paperweight that adds a little glamor to your office.
Like many other David Wiener creations, we want to bring the Golden Bolt to market and build momentum. We have sourced a nut and bolt supplier, a gold plating company, engraver, packaging that makes a statement, and shippers. We did a soft launch over the holidays and people loved the Golden Bolt. The most frequent comment we received was, "It is much better than I ever expected."
We need to do some marketing, identify resellers, and get the word out. Your pledge will enable us to launch this fun and stylish product on a larger scale. Good friend and music legend Alan Parson has even offered to assist with this campaign. Our goal is to get the Golden Bolt to you by August - even if you order it engraved.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk and challenge is plating and engraving if demand exceeds our production capacity. We've taken this into consideration and are currently in discussions with back-up companies that can increase our production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
