Stretch Goals! BETTER BATTERIES + new rewards

31 likes

The Mine Kafon Team cannot thank you guys enough for your belief in us and our work.

Your support has encouraged us to push further and to stretch our goal.The aim of this stretch goal is to use STRONGER BATTERIES. 

Batteries: A lot of you have mentioned battery life as an issue, and we listened to you. For that reason we want to utilise Hydrogen batteries in our drones. To do this we need vital funds. Hydrogen batteries can fly for up to 3 hours!

Our new target is is 130K, so let's do it!

In return we'll be adding a new reward tier; 30,000 m2 of Mine Field 3D mapping for €50

30,000m2 of 3D mapping. All for just €50
30,000m2 of 3D mapping. All for just €50

+20 new limited edition Armadillo Pendant Lamps.

      Good idea for the life of the battery not for energy capacity. It is your decision.

      @Melle,
      At the moment we are also looking into sniffing sensors. For this we would need a new stretching goal. We can create an update about this topic and share with everyone else either.

      Thanks so much :)

      Hello,

      What about non-metallic/plastic mines?

      Thanks for your comment.
      We think it is a good option to test and tryout some hydrogen batteries to find out the advantages. One thing is for sure, the drones will be able to fly longer, means we need to recharge them also less.

      I'm not sure if hydrogen battery is such a good idea :
      - is it as easy to supply hydrogen to charge the battery as it is to have an electrical network ?
      - how long does it take to charge the battery compared to classic battery ?
      - how will this affect the price of the drone ? You were saying that it is currently around €20 k.
