Firefly Serenity in a pocket-sized, light-up Flash Drive! SHINY!

About this project

"Ship like this, be with you 'til the day you die..."

Dear Browncoats,

We're Incubot, and we're a small group of hard-core scifi/robot fiends who spend our freetime dreaming up things we wish we could have, based on our favorite movies and shows. We're in our 3rd year of making cool stuff, and are so excited to be bringing to life, with your help, the Firefly Serenity!

We all know Firefly's the neglected child of the Sci-Fi pantheon: cancelled too quick, no sequels, no toys. For years, we've waited for the collectible Serenity we could proudly display on our desk...until we finally decided to make our own.

Our Firefly Serenity will be cast in metal, and will feature light-up engines, and a retractable 8G (or higher) USB Flash drive.

Special details will include the solar panels, and -- if we can stretch past our target -- a really cool stand

If you supported our successful Grendizer Kickstarter, then you know Incubot is serious about delivering a quality drive that honors the spirit of everything we love from the show.

We're following the same design and manufacturing process as our last 5 successful drives: tons of sketches, fast rapid prototyping, then tooling and refinement. We're in partnership with our friends at CustomUSB again, who produced the Grendizer, Voltron and Voltron USB drives with us. 

We have experience with metal casting and finishing, after our launch of the Gigantor 8G drive.

Thanks to your help on Grendizer, we have a global fulfillment solution waiting, and already some preorder interest from major retailers.

We've already secured the official license, completed prototyping, produced molds, and our next step is to refine the molds, design the boxes, and get cranking. 

Now we just need YOUR help to cover the up-front licensing and manufacturing costs, and to help create enough volume to make the project viable!

Risks and challenges

We have a great track record of bringing sci-fi inspired drives like Voltron, Gigantor and Grendizer to success. We have a working prototype, and production is ready to go.

Timing is always a factor, as perfecting an articulating drive can take some time.

We have fulfillment channels and distribution relationships all ready to go.

We have no real risks we're concerned about. We just want to make this thing awesome!
