The lovely folks at Engadget just posted a nice story about the Kapsule

One user mentioned the color choice. We can make them in any color that you want. Leave a comment, and tell us what you'd prefer.


Update #2

Shapeways loves the Kapsule

Comment

We got a nice mention on the Shapeways blog about the Kapsule!

We used Shapeways as a way to make our prototypes, and we seriously couldn't have created the Kapsule without them.


Update #1

The Bloggers are coming!

Comment

We're scheduled to appear on two well-known blogs shortly, with the first mention dropping on Tuesday. The Tuesday story will have some glamour shots to highlight how the Kapsule was created.
