A dark little secret...
Well, well, well! It's been some time. Lotta things happening over here at the PD HQ...things that will come to fruition before the year is out.
But first, whatcha been up to? As we decorate our porches with ornamental gourds this fall, we wanted to share what we've been doing since the last time we talked:
Those are the fun highlights. We've spent most of our time feverishly working on...well...we can't say just yet.
OH COME ON JUST TELL US
Trust us, we want to spill the beans. Our CEO Peter Dering is a notorious bean-spiller. But our legal counsel Heidi said something-or-other about intellectual property and patent filings and yada yada...we weren't really listening...long story short we gotta keep this stuff under wraps.
OK FINE, HERE'S A CLUE
Gah, we can't help ourselves. We made a teaser video for ya. You can also signup to get notified as soon as we launch our new stuff...in exchange you'll have a chance to win whatever-it-is that we have coming down the pipeline.
IN THE MEANTIME, PEEP OUR PALS
Here are a few of our favorite active Kickstarter projects run by folks we know and love. When we share projects from others we try to keep them as relevant to our backers as possible. To us, that means only sharing products that incorporate elegant design and innovative functionality—projects that we ourselves would consider backing.
Misen is back for their 2nd campaign. Building on their line of durable, affordable, beautifully designed cutlery, they now have a line of stainless cookware to accompany. We've got one of their pans in house and they do indeed look and work just as beautifully as shown in the video.
BIOLITE FIRE PIT
BioLite has been back to Kickstarter with a number of gorgeous solar and smart-energy-powered devices for camping and outdoors. Their new multi-fuel, smoke-free fire pit uses solar+thermal energy to power a convection system that keeps the fire burning super efficiently. It can also generate energy to charge other devices.
LOMOGRAPHY LOMO'INSTANT SQUARE CAMERA
These guys are also Kickstarter veterans, having launched a number of art cameras and lenses for those who dig the low-fi scene. Their new instant camera is by far their most impressive yet. Their project recently ended but you can still preorder!
And that's all we got for now. Stay tuned for the unveiling of many secrets soon.
All our love always,
The PD Team
