Throw Your Money at This: Nano Cache

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 4:00 PM

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.

Give Nano Cache's Kickstarter page a look, and while you're at it, look at some of the other great local projects that people are trying to get off of the ground.
