      Mmmm, I hate to be the one negative here but I thought we were buying something that would look like the initial video -- I did watch the spindle segment through, and noted it won't be that grey color but injection molded? That doesn't look at all like your Kickstarter video prototype. Disappointed.

      YAY! That's great to know so many were rooting for you, and we were too on the other side of the Atlantic - well done!

      I have a wee question for ya, as I am a bit confused about which version gets what...
      I wondered if the SteamPunk version (which I have pledged for) will be hand, or battery powered, and if there might be a possibility to be able to use either mechanical or battery power according to mood?

      Some little clever switch-over switch would be a fab detail, allowing folks a power choice...
      Just a thought really, but like Rita says below, get hold of a drink with an umbrella in it first!
      I was thinking bucket-sized, with a real umbrella.....
      extra spindles will be very welcome, and I suggest you offer them in packs of 5..... we're gonna get addicted, I just know it
