We are excited to announce that we have raised thousands of dollars across the world....
Overview EXAMPLE- "I am just not good at taking exams like Eden who aces the exams every time." What Anna doesn't know, is that Eden takes practice exams everyday instead of doing homework i.e. she treats her homework like an exam, times it, and does not use any technology or assistance while taking them. 'So how does Anna ever expect to be good at taking exams if she never practices taking exams?'" My goal is to get you to fully understand how to properly study college math and physics based courses. About the Book I have close to 10-years of experience working with college level mathematics and physics students—helping them get through their courses with ease! I have written a multitude of resource books, created over 3,000 video lessons, and tutored well over a 100,000 hours. What We Need & What You Get From my experiences, I have found so many students to make such crucial mistakes when studying and approaching college. I have decided to consolidate all of my views into this book in order to help students get through their degree with ease or to save them a huge headache in choosing the wrong major. The Impact Essentially, as a student of mine, you will get what my one-on-one students get in a simple to follow text i.e. any student I have ever had that followed my guidelines as laid out in this text gets an A in the course and reduces their study time weekly by over 60%! Campaign Goal This book will be finished and published by August 1st 2019. Contributors will receive an eBook copy via PDF with any contribution. As part of the publishing of this book, I am also in the beta stage of my new website offering step-by-step study-guides for students and teachers, which you have a one-time opportunity to get lifetime access to the site for a single payment or contribution to this campaign! Features: A completely ad-free experience (except for videos from non-JJtheTutor content) Access to all eBooks as PDF downloads Access to my step-by-step study-guides via video and written lesson Q&A with JJ (ask me questions, submit questions for assistance, ... ) Experience my weekly live sessions where I follow courses step-by-step And that's all there is to it!Donate Now
Overview Get started with Raspberry Pi, robotics, and coding as you build your own mini-computer on wheels! So, you bought a Raspberry Pi. Now what? You need the Pi Cruiser: a complete Raspberry Pi computing system. With the Pi Cruiser, you will build your own rugged mobile robot you can take on the go! Our bot has been uniquely-designed to include space for electronic prototyping and physical room to add accessories, such as a robotic arm (or whatever you want!). The Pi Cruiser is a great, multidisciplinary experience that lends itself as a fun personal project or for your STEM classroom. The Raspberry Pi is a fantastic learning tool. With the release of the latest Raspberry Pi 4, the capabilities are greater than ever, but figuring out how to get started is frustrating.Eliminate that struggle by giving yourself a high-quality, self-contained mobile system. It is the first integrated Raspberry Pi learning solution. We have created a step-by-step building guide as well as suggested projects for both coding in Scratch and Python. The guide includes everything from writing basic Command Window functions on your Pi to basic movement to programming your own photobooth for your Pi Camera! The Pi Cruiser includes everything you need to get going right away. This includes: We have worked for years to develop unique components and source high-quality parts for the Pi Cruiser. They come together beautifully in a robust, multi-disciplinary experience. You can practice coding directly on your Pi Cruiser using the HDMI Touchscreen. With everything all in one place, you can easily program in Scratch or Python. The Pi Cruiser chassis is injection molded and CNC machined. It is made from a high strength ABS for durability and strength. Insert molding replaces traditional standoffs. This greatly simplifies assembly and increases sturdiness of the final robot. CNC machining ensures precise motor installation. This means your power source goes with you! In other robots, batteries are consistently being thrown away and replaced. This can be annoying as well as expensive! We include a 8.4 V, 3600 mAh high capacity battery to keep your Pi Cruiser happy for hours. When you’re done working for the day, simply plug your Pi Cruiser into its charger (included)! You can even charge your Pi Cruiser while it's in use! The power board consists of a dual power supply which provides separate power for the Raspberry Pi and motors. You can program your Pi without ever turning on the motors. When you do turn your motors on and off, your programming environment and accessories won't be affected! LED indicators are on-board to show you what is on and off. This board puts professional ability into the hands of basic users. With our uniquely designed power board, the Pi Cruiser (along with any accessories) will work consistently. Some other features of the power board include: Motors can be directly plugged to the power board to minimize wiring On-board fuse provides an extra layer of protection Easily accessible additional auxiliary 5V power ports for accessories Switchable battery power for additional accessories such as a robotic arm The PC board has been designed with double thickness traces for increased reliability We tested multiple servo motors before choosing these to carry the Pi Cruiser. Our high-torque, continuous rotation servos are strong and specifically designed for robotics applications. They also have low friction and easy access to the rest-point adjustment potentiometer. You have control. You can access all pins! Our uniquely designed breakout board gives you just that. A medium sized breadboard is also included in the Pi Cruiser kit. It sits snugly on the breakout board and helps minimize complicated wiring. In addition, it incorporates a general-purpose push button switch and three LEDs for easy programming. As you progress, you can use these components to debug your code and add to your Pi Cruiser's journey! This screen has been specially designed for the Pi Cruiser, plugs directly into your Raspberry Pi, and maintains access to all 40 Raspberry Pi pins. It works with both the Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 4. The HDMI monitor is also a touch screen for easy data-input and coding! Brackets are extruded from aluminum billets and CNC machined to the final shape. They are then hard anodized for protection against wear and a more abrasion-resistant surface. This mini wrench and mini screwdriver is perfect for assisting in some of the tight parts of the Pi Cruiser assembly. This 2.4 GHz wireless keyboard and mouse is comfortable to code on and still compact for carrying. You can also code your Pi Cruiser to use the keyboard as a "remote" to navigate your Pi Cruiser, take pictures, and more! We wanted to make it easy for new Raspberry Pi users. Setting up Raspian for the first time can be confusing! We've taken care of that for you! The Pi Cruiser kit includes a MicroSD Card and Adapter with the Raspian OS pre-loaded. We have even added sample codes for your Pi Cruiser too! Over the last few years, hundreds of students have tested the Pi Cruiser We received feedback from Pi enthusiasts, classroom students, and teachers and are now on Version 4 of the Pi Cruiser! With each update, we have improved the Pi Cruiser experience and are excited to share this newest version with the world. Whether you are a beginner or college student, educator or hobbyist, this Raspberry Pi robotics system will take you through an incredible learning experience. We are excited to take the next leap into large scale production. Our production equipment and specialty manufacturers for unique components are all in place. Each part has been tested for quality and is ready for mass production. We are ready to go with your support and backing! How did we get here? The idea for the Pi Cruiser was first formed in 2015. We tried and tested a variety of Raspberry Pi bots and computing systems over the years. The first version of the Pi Cruiser was launched in the Spring of 2017. We are now on the fourth iteration of the Pi Cruiser. With each revision, we received feedback from individual users, hobbyists, and classrooms. Check out a video of our chassis being CNC machined to cut slots and holes: The original Pi Cruiser chassis was vacuum formed and CNC machined. Our newest version uses injection molding for the base and CNC machining for holes/cuts. This is a real, user-tested product that is in production stages. We are well past the prototyping stage and are confident in the product we are sharing with you! We hope that the Pi Cruiser is just the beginning of your robotics and coding journey! Code your Pi Cruiser to use the included sensor accessories to interact with its environment. Program you robot to follow lines with the line tracking sensor and navigate obstacles with the ultrasonic sensor! Add a Pi Camera to your Pi Cruiser and program your own mobile photo booth! You'll learn to save and store images and videos using Python code too. Set your bot in "rover mode" where you take a video while controlling your robot with the keyboard. Live stream to another screen as you go! Sample codes for each of these projects are included. The Pi Cruisers also gives user a solid platform to add on physical attachments. Here's an example of a CAD modeled and 3D printed robotic arm (may be purchased separately): The possibilities are endless! Our rewards are simple -- pick up a Pi Cruiser for yourself, a friend, or your classroom today! Each of our pledges include the full Pi Cruiser kit. All you need to do is add your own Raspberry Pi (required) and Pi Camera (optional). *We chose not to include the Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera in our kit as we know so many of users already have their own* With your support, we estimate to ship all kits in February 2020. This provides us with sufficient time to place our large-scale orders and prep shipments directly to each backer. We do have a very special, limited quantity pledge level for Holiday 2019 delivery! As we approach the holidays, we know some of you may know someone who would love to tinker and learn with the Pi Cruiser. We have a limited supply of kits ready to ship in early December in time for the holidays! These kits are full Pi Cruiser kits like all of our pledge levels.

ACRYLIC STANDEES CLOSEUPS (SO CUTE!!) T-SHIRT CLOSE-UPS: FRIDGE MAGNET CLOSE-UP: ENAMEL PIN CLOSE-UP: IN CONCLUSION Thank you so much for checking out my Kickstarter for Outta Our Shells -- if I am successful, I plan to send the game out to Kickstarter backers no later than Sept. of this year, 2020 (or of course, hopefully sooner). Afterwards, I am hoping to bring the game to store shelves -- the game will be priced at $24.99 at retail, so get your copy here on Kickstarter to save money and get a lot of exclusive merchandise only offered here! Risks and challenges From Greg: "Although I have shipped multiple game titles over many years, this is my first card game title so this will be yet another new learning experience for me. Still, I am very confident people will like this game, as I've been playing it for decades now with friends and it is always enjoyed and well received. Also I have a fantastic distribution partner and fulfillment partner (It's the same people who did Cards against Humanity and Exploding Kittens!) so hopefully all will go smoothly. I have some good guides.Donate Now
Overview In the hot, summer months, we as parents have just a few options to keep kids entertained and away from screens. Options are limited for backyard fun - pools are expensive, inflatable water toys are flimsy. Often our only option is to leave the house - and with kids, it's never a quick or easy endeavor. There has to be a way to stay cool + have fun at home! We have the answer: meet the Splash2o at-home, portable splash pad -- bringing the splash park experience right to your own backyard. Your family looks forward to summertime all year, but then... Your kids LOVE the public pool or nearby splash park but... What you really need? Something to keep them outside, having fun and staying cool right in your own backyard. Enter Splash2o. The world's first portable at-home splash pad, with an industrial design built to match the splash pads available at public parks, Splash2o gives families (finally!) an affordable and long-lasting solution for outdoor water fun at home. Keep your kids cool, active, and entertained summer after summer, all in the comfort of your very own backyard. The collapsible, modular Aqua-Tower allows quick, easy setup and storage. Switch out or upgrade Aqua-Stations for a customized play experience. SPLASH2O HIGHLIGHTS: World’s first at-home portable splash pad Versatile, collapsible + easy to store design Simple, click to connect for initial assembly Customizable water play: choose from 8 interchangeable Aqua-Stations Accommodates kids of all ages: spacious footprint (9'x9’) with adjustable height (3’-6’) AQUA-TOWER FEATURES STANDARD AQUA-STATIONS Your Aqua-Tower comes with 8 Aqua-Stations to maximize the fun. We are also working on additional play stations and accessories with many more to come so that your children can have something new and exciting summer after summer. Future accessories and stations include: Here's how we stack up against the alternatives: Benefits for parents: An easy to set up and store outdoor structure that keeps kids occupied during the hot weather months without having to leave home. Accommodate nap schedules and save time and energy by staying home but still getting outdoors. An affordable solution that will last for years: current inflatables break after one or two seasons of hard use and at home splash pad installations today are custom creations and professionally installed, costing thousands of dollars. Benefits for Caregivers / Daycare Providers Add one or two Aqua-Tower systems to your business and give kids in your care hours of safe fun that parents will approve of and childcare providers can benefit from Spend $2k and receive five setups to use throughout your facility that are completely DIY and easy to store, especially if you are in a cold weather area where things need to be brought indoors to avoid storms, cold weather and wind, etc. Make your business more attractive to parents in warm weather months by providing a solution to the heat and allowing their kids to get more outdoors time. Commitment to Community By supporting us, you will not only be making your summers more fun, but also helping our kids and communities. Our children are very fortunate to be growing up in a loving environment filled with many joyful memories, but we realize there are lots of children out there who do not have such an opportunity. A portion of Splash2o proceeds will be donated to local and national charities such as 4KIDS, whose main mission is improving children’s quality of life. We believe children are the future. Join us in creating a better future. Our manufacturing will take place in the USA, so you will also be helping strengthen our domestic workforce and community. Speaking of manufacturing, the expenses associated with engineering and tooling a product of this size are quite significant. While reaching our funding goal will not cover all these costs, it will provide us with the market validation and the momentum for securing the remaining funds to make sure we get your perks shipped as promised. The Splash2o Aqua-Tower will have your neighbors peeking their heads over the fence in awe, and their kids maybe even jumping the fence to get in on all the fun. Splash2o in the Media Who are we? We are David and Carol Ertur. We live in a suburban home in Florida with our two children, Caden (5) and Ava (3). Having two young kids at home all day keeps us (mom) extremely busy, with little time for breaks. The hot summers call for lots of water activities. We don’t have a pool in our backyard, so we either have to go to parks or find water toys that the kids won't destroy or get bored with quickly. We prefer staying home in our backyard though, as it allows the kids to run around freely and still gives us parents some time to socialize and catch up. We needed an affordable, backyard summertime option full of water activities, and that's how we came up with Splash2o. Risks & Challenges As with any product development effort, we expect to come across a few challenges: some that we plan for and some that we just won't be able to predict. Rest assured that we are well poised to quickly tackle and overcome any obstacles. Our well rounded, cross-functional team has many years of experience and an extensive network in the field of product development for nationally recognized brand names such as Mr. Coffee, Sunbeam, Oster, Calphalon, and more.

Overview What you don't know can hurt you, imprison you, and tear your family apart. I am April Preyar, a criminal defense attorney in Chicago. I've listened to Grandma pray for mercy on the grandson who she raised alone. I've watched Dad break down in court, blaming himself that his son lost his way. I've seen the guilt in Mom's eyes, wondering if she could have done anything differently to save her child. What if a game could give you the tools to avoid this pain and heartache? This. Is It. What if 35 minutes could save your son or daughter from serving 3 - 5 years in prison? I am April Preyar, a criminal defense attorney in Chicago, known as the JustUs Junkie. For 19 years, I've represented people charged with crimes from petty offenses to serious felonies. Over the course of my career, I've grown frustrated with standing before a judge or jury with one client at a time. What if I could reach thousands to prevent them from ever entering a courtroom? Millions? I started with workshops. I gained an online following with videos and blog posts. Now, I'm introducing a boardgame which combines all of the videos, articles and seminars into an interactive boardgame. Teens quickly learn the pitfalls that take them out of the "World of Possibilities" and land them in a "World of Trouble." The Process: Tried and True. Before bringing this game to your kitchen table, to your family, I wanted to get it right. I play-tested a prototype of the game on dozens of teens and adults ages 13 to 23. The players were from different socioeconomic backgrounds, from public and private schools. They played one 35 minute session. Afterwards, they are surveyed about what they liked, what they didn't like, what they would improve and most importantly, what they learned. Based on their feedback, I tweaked, revised and improved the game -- all before delivering it to you. The Impact: Save A Life. An old African proverb says, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." The bottomline is, I cannot reach as many teens, adults, schools, teachers, pastors, mentors by myself as we can reach together. Trying to finance this myself has gotten the project this far (my parents even kicked in a few bucks. Gotta love them!) but it will not carry it to all of the places it deserves to go, to all of the people it is destined to touch. This game will save someone's life. Period. It will stop someone from acting out of haste or panic when they interact with police. It will stop someone from succumbing to peer pressure and joining in a group crime that ruins countless lives. I don't know whose life, but it will save at least one. It's all fun & games until someone asks for money. Many hands have helped and continue to lend their time and talents to this labor of love. Below is a pie chart of what the funds are needed for production, advertising and distribution of the game. The cost of perks is included in the calculation: Risks & Challenges The greatest challenges are color printing costs and distribution. The cost of color printing is high, from flyers to the gameboard to the box that houses it. My goal is a sleek, professional product that teens and adults enjoy playing. I need help getting the word out to schools, churches, mosques, Boys and Girls Clubs, scouting troops and families. Getting it in the hands of teens before they ever have any police contact is critical. Sharing is Caring! Share this campaign with friends, co-workers, bosses, pastors, workout buddies, your students, the lady at the cleaners, the man who drives the school bus -- you get the picture. Share. Like.

A self-standing indoor mosquito net that converts to a 3-season expedition tent. For international travelers, aid workers, and professional field researchers to sleep safer in remote locations. Multi-functional and durable. • Built for travel, fieldwork, and adventure • Lightweight and small packing - fits in your carry-on bag • 4-access zippers for charging cables; 18 pockets; 22 attachment loops; 1 roof shelf Click "Read Story" for more information. Introducing the Bwindi Field Tent. Purposely designed for international travelers, aid workers, and field researchers, this tent is designed to help you sleep safer and better throughout your journeys. From urban hotels, to rural guesthouses, to remote field locations, the self-standing mosquito net converts to a robust outdoor 3-season outdoor tent providing a protective and strong physical barrier between you and any disease-carrying insects in the air, ground or mattress you are sleeping on. Packs small Being small means the Bwindi Field tent is easy to take with you wherever your travels take you. Don't fuss with mosquito nets that need to be hung or oversized mosquito pop-up tents that need to be checked in as their own piece of luggage. Modular - take only what you need Only the poles and the tent are required for the indoor mosquito tent. To get full 3-season protection outdoors, bring along the fly-sheet, ground-sheet, and stakes which are all included with your Bwindi Field Tent. Access zippers to 2 pockets in all 4 corners All 4 corners of the Bwindi Field Tent have access zippers that access 2 pockets each. You can charge anything you need from any of the 4 corners and feel confident in knowing that the pocket itself acts as a back-up layer of mesh protection to the zipper opening. 18 inside pockets 22 inside attachment loops 1 roof shelf You didn't read that wrong - make yourself at home, and you can stop sleeping on your stuff! The Bwindi Field Tent has 9 pockets on each end of the tent (=18 total) that also create a double-wall of mesh around the lower part of each end of the tent. Our stronger materials mean the pockets can actually hold things (watch, eyeglasses, notebooks, phone, radio, lights, etc.) without the tent walls sagging down on you. The roof shelf hangs in the middle of the roof but you can use any of the loops to connect it at whichever angle you prefer wherever you prefer. There are 22 internal loops for hanging gear, installing internal guy lines for increased stability, and for attaching a sleeping sheet across the floor. Precision design and construction Available in 4 colors Our color lineup is inspired by feedback from specific users. Whether you want to be discreet or be highly visible, we provide a color palette that offers functional options for what you need. Fits in your favorite carry-on Our custom length poles are custom sized to be under 40 cm to easily fit into most multi-day carry-on bags and suitcases. Thoughtfully designed quality packing bags for each of the tent components allow you to take what you need and leave what you don't. The stuff sacks/bags are slightly larger than needed so it's super easy to stuff your tent, fly, and groundsheet into them and then form the stuff sacks into whatever shape fits your bag best. Field.Work is bringing back the tradition of the field tent. We wanted to make a tent that met the following criteria: designed for international travel made to be lived in for multiple weeks at a time made of proven materials and simple components that could be repaired in the field with needle and thread and/or duct tape Tent - features summary Flysheet - features summary Technical specifications Materials Instructional videos The Bwindi Field Tent is 100% insecticide free and relies on its high-quality materials and design to keep you safer at night by providing a 360-degree physical barrier around you while you sleep. While will we can not guarantee that insects won't get in your tent if the doors or zippers are left open or if they hitch a ride on you, as you enter the tent, our field tests show that once you are inside and all zipped-up that you'll be protected from any insects outside. To be 100% sure that that you won't be bitten do not sleep against the mesh walls of the tent - we have the sized the Bwindi Field tent slightly wider than the average 1-person tent to better accommodate this. Apply a permethrin treatment if you wish It is your call if you want to use a permethrin mosquito spray on your Bwindi Field Tent. Permethrin is an insecticide that kills mosquitoes and other small insects on contact. It is readily available in stores (and online) and permethrin-treated mosquito nets are currently recommended by the World Health Organization for protection against mosquitoes. We would caution that recent studies are indicating the potential for a linkage between permethrin and effects on human health. This is the reason why we left the choice up to you as to what you are comfortable with by keeping the Bwindi Field Tent 100% insecticide free. If you choose to use permethrin, consumer available permethrin sprays should not hurt your Bwindi Field Tent as long as you follow the application instructions they provide. Treat the Bwindi Field Tent with the spray as it advises to treat any other piece of material or clothing. DEET based mosquito repellant can have a chemical reaction with both the waterproof coating and/or the polyester material that the Bwindi Field Tent is made of so we DO NOT recommend getting any DEET based product on your tent. THE SUPER PERK:The Bwindi Expedition OUR SUPER PERK IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY! Field.Work is super excited to partner with the amazing and experienced adventure travel company Rock My Adventure to offer a once in a lifetime trip to Bwindi and beyond.

In saying that, don't claim to have extensive experience or knowledge of how customs works in countries all over the world. We can't guarantee that you won't experience delay's or be charged import duties. As many of you know, our terms of sale for international orders are FOB destination. This means that you pay all freight and duties or taxes. As we are shipping these products all over the world, it is not possible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Indiegogo or help you determine that for your shipment. If you wish to learn about the duties and taxes applicable to your shipment, you may want to check with the customs and border protection authority of your country. We found this helpful tool, that might be able to assist you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the USD to your local currency when you use it: www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/ Product warranty We believe in our product and stand by the quality of workmanship and materials. Reach out with whatever concern you might have and we will make it right. Most of you know this but crowdfunding is an amazing tool that allows people to get their ideas off the ground. Indiegogo is not a store and "perks" are the way that we say thank you for supporting us - we are VERY grateful. Return policy Field.Work does not offer refunds or returns on tents/products that were received as an Indiegogo Perk. But having said this, we're people too. Let us know your concern and we will see what we can do for your specific situation. The Bwindi Super Expedition deposit is also non-refundable but it is transferable to someone else that qualifies by meeting the same application process as all participants - a questionnaire and a call with Helen and I. Risks and challenges MANUFACTURING. It's worth mentioning that the Bwindi Field Tent already exists. In preparation for this Indiegogo campaign, we conducted a 'short' production run of 50 tents. These tents came out perfect and we learned more about our production timeline. Our factory partner has been fantastic from day 1. They are incredibly qualified, skilled and reliable. We are also personally involved. Hoa lives a 25 min drive to the factory and she maintains regular contact with the factory team at all times. Jordon will be in Vietnam to be part of overseeing the QA/QC of the final tents coming off the production line just because he's that kind of a guy :) ORDER FULFILLMENT. There are two issues to this. Having the product ready to ship and the complexity of shipping a (hopefully?) large number of orders internationally. We admit it's our first campaign so we've partnered up with BackerKit to support us with fulfillment. Our previously mentioned short production run has helped us to understand potential issues (i.e. it's ordering the custom poles that have the biggest time impact on our schedule) and so we've set thoughtful timelines that we're confident - in consultation with the factory - we can stick to. TRANSPARENCY. In life and in business there are always unforeseeable risks and challenges and we are committed to putting forth every effort to do right by you the backer, if or when any such situation arises. There will no doubt be some twists and turns in the path ahead but if it is going to impact you the backer, the product or your delivery date, we commit to proactively informing you as soon as we understand the situation. This will be done by updates here on Indiegogo or, if necessary by email as the situation calls for.

About Empathy Test Empathy test was conceived in January 2013 by electronic music producer Adam Relf and singer/songwriter lsaac Howlett. Like many others, the childhood friends were inspired by the movie Drive, setting out to collaborate on a new, synthesiser-infused track. Losing Touch went on to appear in Netflix drama Luis Miguel, received 2.5 million Spotify streams and helped launch the band's career. With the addition of live drummer Christina 'Chrisy' Lopez in 2016, Empathy Test transformed into a fully-fledged live band and began touring the world. Empathy Test's founding members, 2016: Adam Relf (left) and Isaac Howlett (Right) Despite numerous offers from record labels, Empathy Test remained independent, opting to build their own loyal fanbase from the ground up. The band's popularity was crystallised in 2017, when they successfully crowdfunded not one, but two debut albums via the now defunct PledgeMusic. No one was more shocked than the band themselves, were fully funded in just 10 hours. The project eventually ended 661% funded. The touring members of Empathy Test, 2019: Christina Lopez (left), Isaac Howlett (centre) and Oliver Marson (right). Empathy Test rewarded their fans with two years' of heavy touring and the release of two new singles, In 2019, they were joined by a new member, Oliver Marson, who arrived armed with a Prophet synthesiser and had an immediate impact on the band. During a sound check in Hamburg, Empathy Test began jamming together for the first time. The result was the title track of a new album, and the inspiration for a whole new musical direction. What We Need and What You Get We're hoping you will help us raise the money to fund the release of Monsters, a new Empathy Test album which will incorporate Chrisy's live drums and Oliver's synth hooks for the first time, capturing the energy and raw sound of our live shows. Monsters will not be a live album, but it will feel like one. We’re really excited about it and are hoping that, with your help, this new record can take Empathy Test to even more exciting places. We’re looking to raise a minimum of £4,000 to release Monsters. The money will be put towards all the things that go into creating an album, like studio time (because this time we are using live drums), paying our musicians, and producing the merchandise (CDs, vinyl, t-shirts etc.). As usual, there is an array of exciting and unique perks such as signed merchandise, handwritten lyrics, meet and greets and more, to help you part with your money. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. The Impact As a completely independent band, we’ve not got a record label or management company investing in us. All of the money for recording and releasing new music comes right out of our own pockets. Without the help of our fans’ investment and buying our music up front, putting out an album on multiple formats would be impossible. We’ve proven there is a big audience for our music and with all the touring we have done in the last couple of years, it’s inevitable that audience has grown even further. If you want new music and you want more people to hear it. If you want us to perform in your city or country for the first time, or you just want to be a part of our journey. You can make a huge contribution by investing however much you can in this album, or even just sharing this page or the music and videos with your friends and family. Risks and Challenges We’ll be honest here. There really are no risks. The whole process has been meticulously planned out and organised. The songs have already been recorded and the merchandise has been ordered. Monsters will be released whether we hit the £4,000 target or not. It’s just that if we don’t, there may never be another one, because we’ll all have to get day jobs again. Other Ways You Can Help If you love what we're doing but are unable to invest right now, or you just want to listen to stream the album when it's done, don't forget you can still help. Sharing this project via email or social media with your friends and family is just as helpful. Let's make some noise and get this album heard.Find us on: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTubeDonate Now

I’m Kiki Haynes and I’m excited to film and star in my first self-produced project. As I stated, I’m very passionate about the roles offered to black actresses and I decided to create this film to diversify my acting portfolio. Initially, the idea and motive was to showcase my talent and show levels & layers I haven’t been fully able to do in the roles I’ve been cast in thus far. But then my motive transcended into a purpose much greater than just myself. There's a responsibility to our young black girls and rising aspiring actresses alike who need to see more projects with characters of color in roles founded in areas like computer science, chemical engineering, astronomy, biology and just being overall heros. Just A Phase, written by my talented co-producer, Kent Faulcon, is near and dear to my heart because it is founded in all of the above. My character is a scientist who has a stumbled-upon piece of world altering technology placed in her care to protect; I am depicting my brains vs relying on exploiting my looks or the physical attributes of my body. I hope to inspire young girls to see themselves in my character and take an interest in for S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering & math) courses and excelling in those subjects the way black girl magic only can!Donate Now
Hi everybody! Thanks for coming this far and actually reading what this is about. Well, it's about closing the loop for the mobile industry, in Africa (Ghana, to start with). Because the mobile phone we all love (OK, most of us) and that has given the world so much also has a downside, which you find at the end of its life cycle. Because on the entire African continent, recycling a phone is just not possible (due to the huge costs of a recycling plant). Considering the hazardous (but some of it also valuable) metals and components in a phone, the waste stream is really becoming a health and environmental problem. That's why created awareness campaigns and started collecting the scrap phones and bringing them to the world's best recyclers. 120.000 pieces so far. Now, we want to grow and reach the goal of 1 million phones. Care to help?I worked at commercial and non-profit organizations, but found that the combination rocks for me: social business. I think we created a business model that only has benefits. It makes the mobile industry, that's so important for Africa, greener and cleaner. If we can it happen in Ghana, Africa is next, with around 150 million mobile phones being thrown away every year!What We Need & What You GetThe 30.000 euro is needed to fill a container with scrap phones (around 100.000 of them). This quantity makes it worthwhile to ship the phones. My partner, a Ghanaian that I have worked with in the last two years, will collect the phones from phone shops, repair companies and people's homes. We are the first to offer a practical solution to this growing problem!While collecting the end-of-life phone, we also set up awareness campaigns about the recycling of electronics, like we did in Uganda. We were the first to do this in Africa as well! Our approach is bottom up; help people clean up their country and not wait for governments and multinationals to finish their endless conversations about possible measures.So, if we get 30.000 euro; we can finance scrap collectors in Ghana to fill a container, and after that (with the revenues of the metals in the phones), another one, and another... (if we get less than 30.000 euro, the money will of course also be used to collect scrap and I will work to get the rest of the funds needed for a whole container, or ship a not fully loaded one).We do not pay out employees of our foundation, or use this money for any of the costs we incur. Just to collect scrap and set up awareness campaigns. I hope this will lead to people and companies becoming involved in the electronic waste reduction and perhaps in 5 year lead to the first recycler to start recycling complete mobile phones in Africa!The ImpactThe mobile industry is delivering great value, both social and financial, around the world and is getting countries like Ghana connected to the world for the first time (fixed lines and internet cables did not have the same impact in Africa as in other places around the world). But with 600 million mobile users on the African continent, there should be some ways to safely get rid of a phone, when it can’t be used anymore. But there isn’t…Awareness on recycling and the need and opportunities for mobile phone end-of-life processes need to become commonplace for people in Ghana and the rest of Africa. We need to expand the work that we have done and start a movement that changes the mobile industry for the better; bottom up, and with a benefit for everyone.Donate Now
My name is Mikael Kjellman, I like outdoor adventure sports and work as a design engineer. I really like to bike, but where I Iive in Sweden, the weather is not always very bicycle-friendly. So I designed and built a four-wheeled bike with full fabric body to keep dry and warm in all-weathers. I have driven it to work every day for a year now and it has proven to be a very practical and comfortable little vehicle. It is a fun vehicle to drive and I really like to build things. But the big reason for me has been the environmental benefits that these vehicles could have if they were made more popular.I plan to develop a kit based on my prototype, intended for home builders and small pro-builders. It is to design and start production of this kit, I seek your funding's.PresentationPodRide is a velomobile that is meant to be a practical every day vehicle.It has approximately the same seating position and seat height as a small car, allowing easy access and good visibility in traffic. It has four wheels to be narrow enough for bicycle paths but still be stable in the curves. It has a full waterproof body to keep you warm and dry in any weather, heated windshield, soft seat with back support, air suspension and studded tires in winter. A small trunk for your shopping bags and a tow bar for a bike trailer when you want to bring your kids.The electric motor and control system are from a standard e-bike system and should make it a street legal bike in many countries. And may then be operated on bicycle paths and without a drivers license. Technical data:Length: 180cm Width: 75cmHeight: 145cm Seat Height: 50cmWeight: 70kg Wheel: 20 inch tiresWheelbase: 88 cm Turning circle: 3,5mMotor: 250W electric Gears: Internal Geared HubRange: 60km Speed:25km/h (with motor)Co2 emissions: 7g/km(EU-electricity mix)(Car 140g/km, Electric car 70g/km) Bicycle-Cars are practical, good for your health, cheap to run, good for the environment and fun to drive. They require no new and advanced technology to work and they would not cost much if they were mass-produced. Many other bicycle-cars have been available on the market for many years but they are still for some reason, an almost unknown vehicle. I think my more car-like bicycle-car concept will appeal to many more people than the low streamlined tricycles that are available today. I hope that by building and running practical, fun and good looking bicycle-cars like PodRide, we can get bicycle-cars to become a popular and mass-produced vehicle.PodRide in the news: Planned actions Reaching: 10 000Plan one is to make drawings and building instructions of the existing prototype.Requires: that a designer puts 2-3 months of work on the project.Reaching: 30 000Plan two is to make key parts available such as wheels and drive shafts which are difficult to manufacture yourself.Requires: more design work, find and buy parts, order and test parts and probably buy batches of some parts.Reaching: 50 000Plan three is to make a complete kit with all the parts and materials needed.Requires: finding manufacturers for all parts, production molds, test build kits and build infrastructure to pack and ship kits.Reaching: 100 000Plan four is to make an easy to build complete kit, no fabrication needed (like a IKEA Furniture).Requires: redesign of many parts and details, molds and manufacturing tools and more infrastructure for pre-assembly, quality control, pack and ship kits, a lot of test building of the kits and making good instructions.Reaching: 200 000 or morePlan five is to also offer completed kits and start developing a longer version with a small rear seats for children, dogs or more cargo Risks and problemsIt is a complex product and most of the parts have to be specially manufactured.My job is to design and purchasing machine parts but I have no experience in designing and purchasing textile parts.I'm the only fully dedicated team member today.The price on the kit may turn out to be too expensive.I do not have any big resources so if I for some reason must end the project, it is not certain that I can repay all contributions.The rules on electric bicycles differs from country to country, and some places do not allow 4 wheels on bicycles.The project is intended to promote practical bicycle cars and can lose much of its meaning if for example Toyota suddenly releases a practical bicycle cars.This may sound negative but I want to be honest and not pretend that there are no risks and problems. However, I am convinced that I can put together a good team and solves these difficulties and make a great velomobile. Spread the wordThis campaign is designed to raise money, but the long term goal is to promote bicycle-cars. So it is equally important to spread the word, show your friends, share online, talk to your local politicians and traffic planners show that this kind of vehicles exist and work.Donate Now
