GRABIT ROBOT MULTI PURPOSE HOLDER SET TO LAUNCH ON KICKSTARTER
Trinkits, a husband and wife start-up design company recently announced the launch of their first crowd-funded project via Kickstarter, the GrabitRobot. Grabit is a multi-purpose holder that can be used in the home or office.
Grabit is made of durable ABS plastic, standing at 5 inches tall. The robot comes in 5 different colors: mango, bright blue, lime green, bright red, and white. Inspired by simple minimalist design and the world of art toys, Leo created the grabit robot using simple geometric shapes. Grabit is a work of art that will be sure to put a smile on your face when you walk into any room. The robot has been perfected by having gone through three design iterations over a 12-month development cycle.
Grabit’s timeless and simple design makes it a great companion for all ages. It can serve as a good encouraging friend for kids to brush their teeth more often. Grown-ups can use it as a decorative piece in their bathroom sink that’s modern and fun. As a desk companion, Grabit can add flair and fun to a dull work environment, while keeping things tidy.
Their Kickstarter campaign will launch on March 8, 2013 and is set to last 40 days. They set an all-or-nothing goal of $7,000 which will go towards the production and shipping of their product.
Kickstarter is a great vehicle for young entrepreneurs like us. Crowd funding is a revolutionary way of branding and funding for start-ups.
Leo Fajardo, designer of Grabit Robot.
