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

Now included with water proof case.
Now included with water proof case.

2. Suction cup mount

Now included with water proof case.

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!

Thank you,

Team Podo

      Also how much gear can fit in the hard shell?
      As mentioned before, I got the 6 pack. I've also paid extra to get a few cases / waterproof cases.
      Oh and if we purchase more than one waterproof case and you get past the $800k (which you totally will) - will each waterproof case get the attachment add-ons?

      Very excited - first saw about these thru Alyssa Ramos' IG!
      I've bought a 6pack and after getting your referral program reminder email - I've posted this campaign within my travel group: girls LOVE travel (which has over 111,000 members)
      I know some have already said they have used my referral link to purchase.
      How do I see that data to make they all went thru?

      @Catherine Maguire - We'll do it, just wondering if you had one in mind :) thank you!

      @Podo: thanks so much for your kind offer. I'm in Australia, so I'm not well versed with the US charities. Am happy to research if you'd like?

    6. Podo Labs 4-time creator on

      @Catherine Maguire - Good suggestion; our choice was purely based on jumping in on this month's theme, but you're right it clearly gets a lot of attention already. We'll be happy to split the contributions down the middle between the two. Do you have a good charity you can recommend?

    7. Podo Labs 4-time creator on

      @Sciurvilla - The reason it's in this order is honestly the cost involved; it only costs us more developer hours to tweak software, but once complete there is no marginal cost to give it to everyone who wants it.

      Producing and shipping more hardware pieces at no extra cost to you is a larger expense for us. Hence the larger stretch goal. Sorry!

      Two things:
      1. I'd like to see the next two stretch goals switched too please (and I've already bought two Podos and waterproof cases); and
      2. I applaud your donations, but breast cancer research gets a fair bit of money. Is there any chance you'd consider an ovarian cancer charity instead (and yes, I'm personally invested in this)?
      TIA

    9. Sciurvilla on

      But, honestly, why the stretch goal regarding the stereo mode? How many will buy 2 Podo for this? Why don't ask which stretch to choice between 2 or 3 options? Will be more serious. Or is just a way to push to buy 2 Podos? Don't like this way to do...

    10. Podo Labs 4-time creator on

      @James Arnold - Let's hit both :)

      Any chance of switching the next two stretch goals? Don't care about the stereo thing but the waterproof housing extra would be great. Will they be available to purchase after the campaign is done? I will hold off on purchasing the waterproof housing otherwise.
