While much of the recent Kickstarter chatter has surrounded the Pebble e-paper watch, that is not to say there are not any other successful projects. Sure, these others may not have raised millions and millions of dollars — but some are successful to the tune of raising much more than the original goal. One such Kickstarter project is the HAND Stylus.
Just to give the details, the HAND Stylus currently has 1,825 backers and has raised $73,775. The original goal was to get $25,000. And nicely done, the HAND Stylus still has 32 days remaining. Needless to say, if you want to become a backer, now seems like a good time.
In fact, the company has recently informed us that they plan to begin shipping (to those who backed on Kickstarter) in July 2012. And just to clarify, the project will come to a close on June 16, 2012. The basic pledge for is $25 which will give you one HAND Stylus in the color and finish (gloss or matte) of your choice.
As for the ‘reward’ for being a Kickstarter backer. In this case, it looks like you will be amongst the first to get a stylus. And in addition, it will come with a $5 savings as compared to the retail pricing. With all that being said, here is a bit about the stylus;
Unlike any other stylus on the market, the HAND Stylus’ slim tip rotates each time it is retracted allowing the tip to wear more evenly over time. Another unique feature of the HAND Stylus is its stainless-steel, removable pocket clip that adheres to the magnets in an iPad’s Smart Cover.
The HAND Stylus is made of aerospace-grade anodized aluminum and is available in six gloss or matte colors – black, red, green, blue, pink and orange – that can also be laser engraved to provide a personalized touch. The HAND Stylus comes in a sleek, tin gift box and six-packs of replacement tips are packaged in a handy aluminum container. All of the packaging comes from recycled or easily recyclable materials.
