Curly Cable to be funded
All iPhone and iPad users know that battery life is a problem and for the most devoted device users, an afternoon without your device can be not only upsetting but unproductive. As a throwback to the spiral cords on phones of yesteryear, Curly Cable connects iPhones and iPads to the charger while solving the problem of the dramatically short charger cord that plagues device users and also addresses the problem of cords that get tangled and knotted.
The prototype has been built and because they have met their funding goals on Kickstarter.com, the company will begin production after they receive funding at the end of the month and people who pledge $15 or more receive a first generation Curly Cable.
Kickstarter.com is “the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects,” wherein projects are posted to the site and anyone with a credit card can pledge money to fund the projects, but the twist is that a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands because “creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.” The site also allows project creators to keep 100 percent ownership over their work and offer products and incentives in return for pledges.
