THE 6thfinger PROJECT

We developed the 6thfinger because of our love for mobile games. We longed for something that can keep the game active while we have to step away. It was to our surprise that there is no such thing out there in the market that can react to the capacitive screen on its own. That is why we decided to start this project to create a first of its kind device that can benefit gamers like us at a relatively low cost.

WHAT IS 6thfinger AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
6thfinger is a portable device which interacts with a capacitive touchscreen as if your finger is tapping and turning the screen in a random pattern. The 6thfinger does not require any battery or power outlet, and is ready to use right out of the box. Light weight (35g) and compact, the 6thfinger can be used on any capacitive touchscreen device big and small, indoor or outdoor. Made with high grade aluminum and durable components, you can trust that the 6thfinger will work for you for a very long time.

6thfinger also performs well with the laptop touchpad and Windows 8 touchscreens. It would be a convenient way to prevent the screensaver from coming on without the need to disable in settings.

REWARDS - We created this project to bring to you this new technology with pricing options for everyone's budget.

DRIVING DOWN THE COST

It has been a difficult process making 6thfinger available at such a low cost. Our mission was to create the 6thfinger to be affordable and available to all gamers alike. However, our first working prototype turned out very expensive to produce so we returned to the drawing board. We spent a whole year of work to re-engineer using different designs, components, and materials and working with different manufacturers, to bring to you the 6thfingers at its affordable price.

Risks and challenges

The 6thfinger project has been in the works for over a year now. We have a strong passion for games and made it a mission to make our product available to service all gamers like us. But we are not just gamers, our team consists of engineer, product designer and media specialists with extensive knowledge of design, manufacturing, electrical, 3d machine, CNC milling. With the one goal to bring to you the quality specimen within budget, we strived to complete many stages of engineering and testing before we present to you this working prototype.

The 6thfinger is ready to go and patent is pending, and we have vendors on standby to have this product ready to produce once we have your help in successful kickstarting our project. We also know that manufacturing contains margins of error and that is why we will spend the extra effort to make sure the product will be assembled locally here in San Francisco, California, so we can personally inspect each and every 6thfinger that is shipping out. It is with this that we can promise you that you can rest assured that at the end of our successful 36 day kickstarter campaign, your personal 6thfinger will immediately ship within the 30 day or 60 day period as noted.
