Sneak Peak: Latest Kickstarter Project

Here’s what you need to know

Around 48 hours from now (as I type this) – I’ll be launching another exciting Kickstarter project.

Yes, I know, it’s very soon after the TiTweezer™ Kickstarter project – but each of these projects will not affect the fulfillment of the other.

This project is something many people have been asking me to do for a while now (so I kinda just gave in… and did it :-D) – and so here’s a sneak-peak at a little of the design process:

 

titanium-prototype-1

To give you an idea of the size of these – the distance between the little white dots on this image is 10mm (0.40″). So it’s around 60mm (just over 2 1/4″) in overall length.

 

Yes, you got it, it’s a carabiner style clip – and a fairly minimalist one at that.

I’ve been testing it for a number of weeks now – and it’s preforming very, VERY well.

Important things you need to know about it…

It’s designed for everyday use. Which means you probably don’t want to be putting your whole body-weight on it.

I could have made it as strong as I wanted – but it would then require a different shape, design, thickness and so on. It’s purpose is for using everyday.

It’s slim. It’s light. The purpose is for it to be barely noticeable when you carry it around… but be able to handle 99% of the tasks you throw at it!

Right, got to run, these photos for the Kickstarter project don’t take themselves. 😛

    Awesome! I very much look forward to this next project!

  • Ben says:

    I guess your just gonna end up with all my money lol

  • Wesley says:

    Magnus,
    I haven’t been able to back a project of yours since viperfish. Do you still do the exclusive backer updates? Those were awesome. I’m super excited to get to help fund you once more!!

    • Hey Wesley, yeah, sort of. I still do quite a few Updates – but it’s more a mix of random stuff like showing Backers new prototypes, perhaps a few videos, and I still do the “Ask Magnus Anything!” this (which I secretly think I enjoy more than anyone else :-P).

  • Joe w says:

    Looking forward to it!

  • William says:

    Brilliant I just love this product and have so many uses for it.

  • B Alan Eisen says:

    You know that this is needed!

  • Bob Lukach says:

    Looking forward to this product Magnus!

  • Thank you for the comments – it’s kinda made my morning here to be honest.

    I’m serious. Little known fact: Every time I get near the launch of a Kickstarter project I think, “Who on earth is going to back this?!”.

    Strange… but true. Funny how our brains have all these “protection mechanisms” that cause us to have these kinds of “issues”.

  • Rob says:

    Looks great! I can always use a few more clips.

  • Kat says:

    Oh good. I was hoping I could get my hands on one of these soon!!

    Be interesting to see you a KS at this time of year goes for you too. All the best!!

  • Steven Landau says:

    Magnus,
    This is a brilliant idea! Especially if you can keep it short, offer holiday cards (real or printable) for anyone who’d like to give them as a gift, with an estimated date of delivery on the card, and a short time to deliver the clips; you will have a great Kickstarter!

    You remain the King of Titanium, of course!!!

    Yours Truly,
    Steven Landau
