So how about this Nano Cache Kickstarter?
A project out of Tucson's Cybernetic Research Laboratories, a machining and engineering company just off of Aviation Highway and Alvernon Way, has been ridiculously successful with their travel-sized capsule container Kickstarter project. (For the uninitiated, Kickstarter is one of the original crowd-funding websites—users post projects and ask other users to pledge funds. If it gets off the ground, the donors get gifts related to the project; if it doesn't, nothing changes hands.)
How successful, you ask? The original target for the project was $2,500. Kickstarter users have, as of this writing, pledged $30,258—1,210 percent of the funding they originally wanted to get the project off the ground, making it the third-most-funded Tucson-based Kickstarter yet, with 18 days yet to go before funding closes.
From the Nano Cache Kickstarter page:
Nano Cache is a versatile, sturdy, sleek, protective metal case to be used for just about… well, anything! Nano Cache was the idea to somehow protect all those precious small items and keep them secure/close at all times on your person, backpack, pet, etc.
Take it hiking, fishing, boating, on snow mobile rides, dog sledding, skiing, snowboarding, horseback ridding, in the car/RV, sky diving, or to outer space. The Nano Cache was designed and is made to withstand all elements. Its many uses are only limited by your imagination.
