Flipstik’s incredible capabilities are possible because of our Synthetic Setae™ which mimics the organic setae hairs of the gecko. This is done using biomimetics or biomimicry. Nature is perfectly engineered, so at flipstik™ study nature to solve complex human problems.
We are a team of designers and tinkerers (and a NASA engineer) (Thx Uncle Chris). We believe in sustainable solutions for life's challenges. For us, sustainability means equitable business practices that never forget stakeholders and celebrate diversity. U.S. corporations avg 6 Trillion in net profits every year. If every corporation pledged just 3%, we could raise $180 Billion dollars. Every. Single.Year. To solve issues like poverty, cancer, addiction, education, and environmental challenges like the ones affecting the gecko’s natural habitat: Rainforests. As of 2010 the avg total corporate donations (U.S.) were only $16 Billion. We pledge that 3% of our net profits will be donated to charity, forever. Find out more at www.itjusttakes3.org
Please note that per Kickstarter guidelines, we cannot use this crowdfunding project to raise funds for charity. We will certainly support our beneficiary orgs outside of Kickstarter, and celebrate this commitment with our backer community.
