Final Stretch Goal Descriptions
Please watch the video for an in-depth explanation of the stretch goals, and a guide on how to change your pledge or add accessories the right way.
Length: 5 min of stretch goals explanation + 3 min of "how to manage your pledge"
As mentioned in the video, the following stretch goals will be free for all of our backers should they be reached! To hit these goals, please use our trusted partner Thunderclap to help us coordinate our posts into one social media movement:
$700k - Stereoscopic Shooting Mode
Stereoscopy is a technique where two cameras are used to capture a subject at slightly offset angles, to create the perception of depth. This is exactly the way our eyes work.
When you combine these two images into a single gif with one focal point, you get what's sometimes called a "wiggle" photo!
If we hit this stretch goal, we will create a STEREO shooting mode that makes it super easy to make these fun wiggle gifs on your own. This upgrade to the app will be free, but do note you need two Podos positioned next to each other to make this work. In the future, we'll also pursue expanding the app support to 6 Podos, so you can arrange them in a circle and capture bullet-time style photos!
$800k - Upgrades to water proof case
Anyone who purchases a water proof case will now receive 2 additional free accessories as a bonus:
1. Detachable loop + carrying strap
2. Suction cup mount
Both of these free additions make use of the 1/4" thread hole in the water proof case. The loop you to hang the Podo on whatever you like, or use our included strap. The suction cup features an adjustable angle and sturdy suction mechanism, not just a flimsy cup. And unlike the sticky pad, this suction cup will work underwater, so its perfect for the beach, the pool, or a snowy mountain.
$900k - Free hard shell gear case
Declutter your bag with this free case that holds your Podo, cables, small electronics, pens, and other odds and ends. Approximately 8"x4", subject to final design.
The exterior is a hard EVA shell that keeps your gear protected, and the interior is soft and lined with pockets.
Every backer at the $39 level and higher will receive this case with their other rewards, free! One case per backer.
$1M - Memory upgrade, colors, filters
This is an ambitious goal, but that's what stretch goals are supposed to be, right? Let's do this!
2x Memory Upgrade: Podo will ship with 16GB instead of 8GB. This will be a Kickstarter exclusive. Only you guys will have these high-capacity Podos to thank you for helping us hit this goal.
New Colors - Black and Pink: You may specify your color choice after the campaign concludes between blue, black, or pink. For every pink unit we ship out, we will donate $2 to the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Filters: We pursued third-party services in the past for software plug-ins for beautifying effects, image filters, and other software goodies to enhance your photos. The cost is high and sometimes on a per-photo basis, but if we hit this stretch goal we will be able to lock one of these deals down!
Everybody, let's work together to hit these stretch goals! Things you can do are tell your friends, share us on social media, or more directly, increase your pledge amounts! You can modify your pledge to add more Podos or purchase accessories, and you will not lose your place in line for Christmas shipping!
To maximize the impact of our social media push, we are using a service to coordinate yours and our posts together so they all post at the exact same moment on Wednesday, 8am PT. This way they can have the most viral impact! It's safe and non-spam, please click on it here and hit "support on Facebook", and let's earn you some free rewards :)
*Note about yesterday's update: The #7900 backer number cut off for Christmas shipping is not a hard limit. We will not ship less units, but we will ship more if we can! If you're not sure of your backer number, just know that if you pledged while our campaign had raised less than $600,000, then you are set for Christmas shipping! Please follow instructions in prior updates and given by your very helpful fellow backers (Lyle Nerl Gogh, Leslie Key Dodson, Craig Caton, Srikanth B, Q, Lindsay Paige, and others I'm sure I'm forgetting. Thank you all so much!) Unfortunately we are getting swamped in these last few hours and cannot answer questions about how to find backer numbers or referrals.
Thank you everyone! Just 2 days left to go!
Reminder of past stretch goals you already unlocked!
