So I’m working on getting my crowdfunding campaign up and started. Alas most successful campaigns have well produced videos, with animations etc etc. I’ve been working on the script which I think may have been influenced a lot by the Prometheus Ted talk. Whether that’s a good thing is up to you lot.

I’m planning to make a set of zbrush animations of various coverings to show what could be done artistically speaking with the hand.

Ok so on to the rewards system. This is a bit dependent on how I plan to get the rewards out to the funders. For example shapeways doesn’t deliver to addresses outside the country of the billing address. So I might need to use their voucher system and give them to funders to then buy my designs. I.materialise on the other hand does ship to other countries, but I’ve not used their printers before. If I can avoid turning my home into a internet shipping hub, then horray!

Anyway onto the proposed rewards. Feedback is strongly appreciated.

 

$1- List of supporters on the anthromod website

$20- As with $1, but also a signed thank you letter.

$50- 1 month access to 10% off Anthromod products, once Mk3 is available.

$150- As with $50, but with a voucher that allows you to get the Mk1

$200- As with $50, but with voucher that allows you to get the Mk2

$300- As with $50, but with voucher that allows you to get the Mk3

$325- As with $50, but with voucher that allows you to get the Mk3 one week before launch. Limit 5?

$375- As with $50, but with assembled Mk3, with tendons. Left or Right on request.

$500- As with $375, but also servos, servo anchors, power supply and arduino. Left or Right on request.

$900- As with $500 but two hands. R&L,  L&L or R&R

$2000- As with $50, but one Mk3 printed in Titanium and assembled with tendons.

So do you think I’m too heavily reliant on offering discounts? Should there be more lower or more higher rewards? I’m still to hear from i.materialise about the titanium printing so that price may change.
