New stylus designed to help you write better on your device
Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter let you watch a project go from idea to marketplace, like the HAND Stylus with a small 4-mm tip.
The HANDS Stylus is currently available in various bright metallic colors at the website at handstylus.com and through the Herrington Catalogue (herringtoncatalog.com) for $29.95.
Crowdfunding sites offer a way to test the demand for your creation and get it to the marketplace without the need for venture capitalist backing. Many don't get funded, but when they do, it's a great way to launch your ideas.
King said he had to manufacture about 9,000 units to fill orders from the Kickstarter campaign and quickly had about 5,000 more through the website. The HAND has already gone through a redesign to make the mechanics work better.
“I'm proud of the fact that I made my way through the gauntlet,” he said. A crowdfunding campaign “will be harder than you probably anticipate but the rewards can be substantial.”
