About

Check our website to see our full range and more details on how to purchase Capsule Slide - post Kickstarter.

www.hologramer.com

Capsule Slide nails Coffee Pod storage in the kitchen by bringing your Nespresso Capsules magnetically right to your Fridge surface!

It's a wonderfully clean, minimal and fun way to interact with your Pods, and our soft touch Rubber Magnets hug your fridge beautifully ... making re-positioning quick and easy.

A huge 2014 success for us - CapsuleKong!
A huge 2014 success for us - CapsuleKong!

Not our first Rodeo. Between us, we have over 20 years Product Development experience, and the last 2 years specifically in designing and manufacturing Nespresso Coffee accessories... check out our existing range at hologramer.com

Design

We spent a lot of 2014 refining Capsule Slide. We've tested the market in small volumes with a 'proof of concept' flat profile version of the product - and the verdict:

People absolutely loved it!

So we decided to take the product to another level. Designing Slide with a stronger identity, improved functionality and clean, crisp aesthetics.

 Zig Zag

Our patented zig-pattern took many cups of coffee to perfect. We explored hundreds of different ways to achieve the final organic form, which brings this wonderful visual and audible effect while loading the Pods.

It becomes so addictive, you just want to keep playing with it! Go make a coffee already!

Surface

Slides body is a beautiful (as if honed) single piece of Moulded ABS with a stunning 3D gloss diamond pattern on the front surface that grabs and fragments the light as it dances around the room.

The Magnets

We researched and tested a wide range of different Magnetic substrates, thicknesses and pull-strengths. We wanted to recess a custom shaped Magnet, with a minimal form to compliment the space on the rear of the part.

To do this, our Magnets will be manufactured from a high-end 3M Magnetic Sheet with a custom stamping Tool.

Colors

Color representations: not exact, however very closely resemble what we will manufacture.

Dimensions

Capsule Slide measures 186 x 276 x 6mm. (7.3 x 10.8 x 0.23 inches) and weighs only 120grams.

Usability

Slide is really simple:

(1) Grab Slide! 

(2) Walk to your Fridge.. and let the Magnets do the rest! 

(3) Now load up your favourite Nespresso blends and watch them zig and zag through the channels : )

(4) Capsule Slide is easily maneuvered around the Fridge without having to unload it and remove the Pods.

Stretch Goals

Stretch Goal #1 - A production run in Black!

While we think White is the perfect minimal colour for Slide, the product looks amazing in Black as well. If we hit $10,000 in funding - every backer can chose their color (White or Black).

Stretch Goal #2 - Keurig K-Cups, Caffitaly Pods & VertuoLine

The Mould for Slide is fairly expensive, but if we can reach $20,000 we will create a new Tool to cater the above alternative Coffee Pods. You will be able to select which version you want shipped at the end of the campaign.

Compatibility

Currently slide is designed for Nespresso Standard Capsules only, however if we un-lock stretch goal #2, a version for Keurig / Caffitaly and Vertuoline Capsules will be made available to every backer. What this space!

Production Plan

We have an excellent, reliable supplier that we have 2 years experience in working with. Even better, we have already ordered our Tooling and have paid the 50% deposit to start cutting.

Our packaging design is complete, and will be delivered for assembly within the production time frames below.

Production Process

  • 10 days to finish Tooling - Early November
  • 5 days to review Off-Tool Samples - Mid November
  • Final Tool adjustments and Polishing - Late November
  • Manufacturing 1st Production Run - Late November
  • Assembly and Packaging - Early December
  • Kickstarter Orders Shipped - Mid to Late December

Funding

We hope to use the Kickstarter funding to pay the balance of our Tooling and the costs for our 1st Production Run of goods.

Thanks for you support. We hope you're as excited about this launch as we are. We are really proud of this product and hope you can one day enjoy this delightful magnetic Fridge Mount that is tons of fun to use!

Risks and challenges

If Capsule Slide is successfully funded, we need to work closely with our supplier ensuring the required tool adjustments are made following the 1st Off-Tool samples. Our Tool maker has performed CAD Mould-Flow analysis and provided a detailed report on the quality and behaviour of our design post-mould. We are really confident the parts we receive will be even better than the prototype parts we have been testing.

The Magnet integration has been designed in a way that makes assembly very simple. There is only one way to insert the Magnets and we have already signed off on our testing with the 3M adhesive used on our samples.

Following that, it's a straight forward packaging process and the goods can be shipped to our awesome backers!
