We are working on something BIG! We now own a 3D printer, and we can literally print Ferrets! This is a rough tester and it is a premade design so I don’t take any credit for that. But I will be building my own style of ferret to print! That came out of a printer guys ;)
I WILL be selling these on a first come first served basis. You will have the option of blue, black, white or a custom paint job. And eventually maybe we will sell LARGE ones as well! But let us not get a head of ourselves.
I might create a kick starter depending on the interest. You can see more on my Instagram!
I still can’t believe that I was sitting in my kitchen three years ago making a Kickstarter video and now the Olloclip iPhone lens is in every Apple Store worldwide. I have met so many of our Kickstarters at different events and it always brings a smile to my face, it is like meeting an old friend.

Four Kickstarter-funded films went home with awards from this year's Sundance Festival:
Alive Inside, Audience Award: U.S. Documentary Rich Hill, U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Documentary Rat Pack Rat, Short Film Special Jury Award for Unique Vision God Help the Girl, World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Ensemble Performance
Congrats to these films, and to all the people who helped make them happen. 2014 is already proving to be an incredible year for filmmakers!
Join Kickstarter for a Design & Manufacturing meetup this Wednesday! It will feature a talk and demo from Pablo Garcia, one of the creators of the optical drawing tool NeoLucida (above). It’s free, but you should RSVP here.
Hey New York! We’re hosting another Kickstarter Open House on March 20th. Whether you’re making a film, designing a fashion line, launching an app or anything in between, no creative idea is too weird, big or small. Come hang out!
Feel weird plopping a regular water filter in the middle of your dinner table? We feel your pain. Also, Soma feels your pain, which is probably why their beautifully designed Simple Water Filtration System—a project brought to life through Kickstarter—was so successful. And now it’s a real thing that you can take out of your real fridge and put on your real table!
150 Years Underground is a collection of 150 portraits of Londoners at 150 different Tube stations, and it commemorates 150 years of the London Underground. Now, it’s up for public viewing at Camden Collective until March 10th!
We love this pic from the hanging of the exhibition, and even if you can’t make it to Camden, you can see more pictures at the Facebook page.
+ POOL, the project that aims to put a water-filtering, floating pool into the East River, has just launched their Float Lab! It’s a smaller-scale test pool, which will be used to collect data about the river. Hooray for making things happen in the world!
