Meet Immi We’re creating the first battery powered watch with inbuilt technology that allows you to track your menstrual cycle. It’s a simple, convenient, and stylish way to connect with your cycle, without being connected to an app. Knowing the time of day, and the time of the month There are menstrual trackers on the market where you can track your cycle by inputting data into an app on your smartphone or smartwatch. What sets immi apart is that our watch is battery powered and it's not linked to an app or a smart device. This means that this first-of-its-kind watch: Is independent from an app or a smart device Isn’t bulky like a wearable, as it doesn’t house complicated tech in the device Is discrete and stylish Doesn’t rely on the wearer to update an app regularly Is socially conscious and helps women in low resource communities who cannot afford a smart device More knowledge, more control "Owning a watch is both a responsibility and a tool for girls living in extreme poverty. Since there are no clocks or calendars at home or at school, girls with watches can plan and be on time. An immi watch will provide critical information to track her menstrual cycle too, and empower her." The Girls Foundation of Tanzania, 2019 Young women in low-resource communities have few, if any, opportunities to track their menstrual cycle. It's important to track your menstrual cycle so you know when you're due on your period, when you're in your most fertile window, and to learn about your behaviours and moods during the different stages. It is estimated that millions of school-aged girls are forced to stay at home each month around the time they’re menstruating. This is because they don’t know exactly when their period will start and they can’t afford sanitary products so don’t want to bleed at school. As well as this, schools often lack adequate sanitation facilities so managing your period and attending class becomes a huge challenge. To address this challenge, immi is filling the gap by creating a battery powered watch which allows users to track each day of their cycle and pairing this with sanitary products. Our watch allows you to see vital information so you know when you are in your most fertile window, and when you are due on your next period. We are partnering with non-profit organisations who provide in-person female health education and menstrual hygiene to girls. By providing their beneficiaries with the watch as well, we can empower young women to track their cycle, be prepared and stay in school. We're making period tracking fashionable, convenient, and accessible to anyone, anywhere. A chance for change We have partnered with six (and counting!) non-profit organisations globally. When you ‘Buy a watch for her’, it will go straight to one of their beneficiaries. Our partner organisations based in Hong Kong, the Philippines, Vietnam, Ghana, Tanzania and Colombia (and a 7th in the UK!), focus on menstrual health and hygiene. By pairing the watch with sanitary products and in-person education, we can measure the impact this has on school attendance, knowledge about their own bodies, control during different parts of their cycle, and reduced stigma and shame around menstruation. We have three more non-profits based in Turkey, Nigeria and Bangladesh, who are queuing up to be on board for our pilot. If we exceed our target, we will have the ability to work with all of them, too! Thank you, in advance, we appreciate your support so much. If you're stuck for a Christmas gift and don't want to buy more 'stuff', then this may be the perfect present to buy on behalf of your family and friends! Our Progress So far, we've created Version 1 of our prototype (a big watch!) and tested the functionalities. Now we're making Version 2 (a normal sized watch…!) and doing some final tests before we go into production. By doing these first stages in-house, we are hugely saving on costs and are able to easily make the final necessary changes to the functionalities. We've chosen some designs, but we're still working to make them slimmer, and add some finishing touches. Biodegradable Plastic digital version more suitable for humid climates: Our Story "I was on the plane listening to Madonna ‘Like a Prayer’ (obvs) when I realised that my cycle is just another measurement of time" I'm Sarah Cottee and I’m the founder and CEO of immi. I spent 6 years working in the Philanthropic sector in South East Asia. During this time, over and over again I saw the issue of women not knowing about their menstrual cycle. I kept thinking about a way to solve this, not only for these women, but for myself too. I don’t like to use many connected devices or be on my smart phone the whole time. We needed an alternative solution that allowed you to track your cycle yourself. A way that didn’t require electricity or internet access. I was on the plane listening to Madonna ‘Like a Prayer’ (obvs) when I realised that my cycle is just another measurement of time…could we integrate this functionality into a battery powered watch? Madonna’s voice really did take me there. The first 'tech-y' person I spoke to about this gave me some great advice, he told me, 'don't talk tech to a tech person', then proceeded to introduce me to the those I needed to speak to in order to make this happen. There's a multitude of people to thank for helping me get to this stage, most notably, Tania Wu - engineer extraordinaire. Melanie Hughes, Aimee Cheung and Anusha Sugunasabesan have also done insane amounts of work to make immi come to life. Everyone who has listened to me talk about periods for way too long is also a total legend. Thank you. And to my mum, of course. We can rewind just a little bit further… The reason I knew more than just the basics about menstruation is because of my Grandma, Rosaleen Immelda (immi) Clearkin. Gaggs, as we called her, moved over to Liverpool, England, from Ireland at the age of 18 to train as a midwife. She was one of 12 children, and the only girl in her family who was allowed to continue her education past the age of 14. Later on in her career, in-between raising 5 children and working full time, she engaged in pioneering research at The University of Birmingham, finding out more about how to track menstruation and measure fertility. My mum and her sisters were guinea pigs in the research, with Gaggs taking their temperature and asking them about their cycle each day (great morning chats..!). She died just before I came up with this idea, so I asked my mum to download all of her knowledge to me, and that's how we got here. She’s been a constant source of inspiration driving this, and I miss her. Jessica (my older sister), Sarah (me) and Gaggs. Maybe this explains the risk taking behaviour, Gaggs was balancing me on top of ladders before I could walk..!

OverviewThis project was inspired by the countless unnecessary single use plastic bags we received. Unable to find a premium reusable 'carry-everywhere' alternative that we could easily keep in our pocket, we decided to create the ultimate portable shopping bag ourselves. After 4 successful campaigns and 17k+ pledges fulfilled to backers all over the world, we're excited to share our latest project with you: Nanobag 3.0 The ultimate reusable shopping bagUltra-light, ultra-strong, ultra-foldable. You won't believe how small these premium shopping bags pack. These tiny shopping bags are convenient to carry in your pocket at all times, are super comfortable to carry, and easily carries 66lbs (30kg). Wouldn't it be nice to always have a comfortable bag handy?We consume somewhere between 1 trillion to 500 billion of plastic bags per year, and it’s an unnecessary waste. Reusable bags are great for the environment, but normally they’re bulky or poor quality. Nanobag 3.0 is a premium shopping bag so compact that you'll barely feel carrying it. The compact super-soft fabric easily folds into your pocket, and does away with impractical reusable shopping bags. Here are all the designs you can choose from.See our FAQ for info on sizes etc. For our add-on bags, you can add these to your order in the check-out. You need to buy at least one patterned Nanobag 3.0 to be able to add it to your order. The Nanobag 3.0 can easily carry 66lbs (30kgs) 18 liters of space should be enough to cover your daily needs The Nanobag 3.0 even fits in the watch pocket of your jeans. The soft fabric makes it easy to fit the Nanobag 3.0 back in the pouch. The reinforced handles distributes the weight evenly for comfortable use. The bag is so compact and soft that you won't notice even carrying it in your pocket. We’ll plant one tree per bag We're committed to making you a climate positive product. That means that we give more back to the planet than we take. We consider our bags environmentally conscious, as they contain less materials than other bags in their category and help reduce single use plastic bag consumption. This time we’re also stepping up our tree planting efforts further. For each bag we sell we’ll plant one mangrove tree with the Eden Reforestation Project. Mangrove trees are one of the most effective tools against climate change, and stores ten times more carbon than land based tree species. Mangroves take the carbon out of the air and bind it to the ground, thus preventing it from escaping into the atmosphere. One single mangrove tree can store around 1750lbs (800kg) in its 40 year lifespan. As an added bonus they prevent soil erosion and help sustain coastal ecosystems. We'll plant one Mangrove tree per bag sold with Eden Reforestation Projects. Commitment to excellenceWe're committed to creating high-quality products that you'll love. The bags are made with premium custom made fabrics and we've put in place a thorough quality-control and testing process to make sure you receive a great final product. We guarantee that your bags will be of excellent quality. ShippingWe offer FREE International registered shipping to backers pledging for 4 bags and above. All parcels will be shipped with tracked air mail. The team:Tiptop Things are a group of friends working together to infuse everyday items with premium quality and cutting edge technology. Nanobag 3.0 is our fifth Kickstarter campaign, and you might have seen our earlier Nanobag and Air Deck campaigns. Our mission is to make quality premium products that you will love. Why do we need your support?We can't do this without you. The funds we raise here will go towards producing our custom made fabric, printing and stitching the bags as well as logistics.Donate Now

Overview TAGIT™ Umbrella will always be neat, clean and dry as possible after the rain. You don't have to fumble with soaking and bulky umbrellas anymore. ✅ Unique Smart Patch Technology ✅ Auto or Manual Open / Close Available ✅ Ultra Water Repellent Fabrics ✅ Adjustable Magnetic Buckling System ✅ Strong UV / Wind Resistance —Don’t know how to deal with your soaking and dripping umbrellas after every use? —Tired of trying still failing to fold the umbrella nicely? —Remember the touch of those sloppy and soaked mess getting sticky in your hand? —Or those recurring awkward scenes when you’re holding the half-open and dripping umbrella in front of a building or about to get into a car. We understand how you want to hide up the messy, crumpled and ugly umbrellas or maybe just throw them away. TAGIT is here to end all the annoying moments. Time to farewell to all those obsolete creatures from last century. (* We added a clip filmed recently Tsinghua University how the AUTO version works to the end of the original comparison video. ) After use for storm or sun, TAGIT’s patent pending “TAGS” technology allows you to fold the umbrella and secure it in just a few seconds. The TAGIT umbrella would always be as tidy and perfect as the first time you open it. You no longer need to fiddle around with getting every part of the umbrella to fold correctly, as the “TAGS” technology (patent pending) allows the umbrella to automatically fold into the correct shape. Unlike normal umbrellas, the umbrella doesn’t fold into a disorganized mess. Every individual of the umbrella obeys a preset pattern and this pattern will be followed every time you collapse it. # The umbrella can be folded and secured in 5 seconds! TAGIT’s core lies in its patent pending Smart-Patch technology. When collapsing the umbrella, the Smart-Patch will guide the umbrella to fold into a preset position. By altering the parameters of the production equipment, the thickness and hardness of each patch can be different. Thus, the thickness and hardness of the whole patch fully controllable and precisely in accordance with the values we set. The significance of Smart-Patch technology lies in being able to control the reaction of each part of the umbrella when folded. With each specific design of the patch’s form, having the creases in different contraction and expansion of the patch to be controlled with relative freedom. We can even specify the folding reaction sequence across the umbrella. Additionally, through experimentation and research, we have optimized the ratios of raw materials to greatly improve the ductility and toughness of patches. “Snap!” We believe TAGIT’s magnetic buckling system is the best closing mechanism on the market, securing the umbrella to be clean, smooth, and hassle-free. Ordinary umbrella manufacturers may be stuck in the dark ages, still using velcro or button clasps that are neither durable nor adjustable. This makes it difficult to buckle the umbrella to the right position with limited strength. However, TAGIT lives in the future! TAGIT’s design accommodates everyone because the magnetic buckle’s position can be adjusted to adapt to anyone’s preference. The addition of the Smart-Patch effectively protects the umbrella fabric so that it neither deform nor wrinkle. This is the first time that an umbrella can truly be as smooth as a lake at dawn. In order to combat wrinkle issues as much as possible, ordinary umbrellas can only choose nylon, PG, polyester, and other umbrella fabrics with a certain hardness. The possible umbrella materials are almost limitless due to the umbrella fabric manufacturing process developed by TAGIT which can process various high-grade materials into umbrella fabrics. DuPont Tyvek, 3M reflective cloth, conductive cloth, leather, and even lace. You name it, we can use it. And thanks to the Smart-Patch, they’re all wrinkle free. What you end up getting is an eye-catching, functional work of art. We have been through a lot of difficult time on our journey to develop TAGIT. For three years it felt like a bitterly cold winter that we thought we may never see the end of. But we did, so to commemorate that, we used fabric found on the best down jackets to create the umbrella for Kickstarter. We hope that our special TAGIT umbrella will ‘keep you warm’ through whatever hardships you are experiencing. # We developed 8 colors for the first batch of umbrellas. *The 3M Scotchlite Reflective Fabrics looks grey under normal circumstances and will become shining white when exposed to bright light. On rainy or snowy days, the last thing you want to do is fumble with a soaked and bulky umbrella. Though you really don't want hold it in your hands, you get nowhere else to hide it. It is very likely that your shoes will be sloshing with water once your soaked umbrella slowly drips on your feet while sitting on the subway, standing or walking elsewhere. We used fabric found in the best down jackets for TAGIT's first batch of umbrellas. The down jacket fabric alone has excellent water and wind resistance capabilities. Through hundreds of combinations and tests on this material, we found one of the best waterproofing agents, the Teflon EcoElite™, to put on top of this umbrella fabric and formed a hydrophobic coating to the surface of the umbrella. Teflon EcoElite™ is the first renewably-sourced, non-fluorinated fabric treatment for durable water-repellency and is manufactured with 60% renewably-sourced raw materials. It overcomes the disadvantage that traditional Teflon may harm the environment. Although TAGIT can use a wide range of fabrics, Teflon coatings can be adapted for use on various fabrics selected by TAGIT, thus allowing TAGIT to maintain the strongest water resistance on the market. Recall for a second the previous umbrellas you have used, after a brief time in the rain, they are wet, dripping everywhere, and have water pooled all over them. TAGIT only requires two shakes and the raindrops are gone. You can simply put it in your bag or take it into the car without any hazitation. After testing hundreds of materials for making the Smart-Patch, we found an ideal match to our design, a UV-absorbing material commonly used as a coating by the military to protect optical components and fighter planes. Due to the superior materials used to make the Smart-Patch, its ultraviolet absorption rate reaches up to 90%, which greatly enhances the effectiveness of TAGIT as a protection against the sun. Under the double layers of the Smart-Patch, TAGIT's UV resistance is as high as UPF60+ UVA<3%. The specially formulated Smart-Patch has superior ductility and toughness, and after being attached to the umbrella fabric with a special process, the durability of the umbrella fabric is greatly enhanced. And did we mention the umbrella’s frame is made out of 7075 aluminum alloy, an aluminum alloy that has excellent mechanical properties. It shows high strength and toughness, good ductility and good resistance to fatigue. With that being said, TAGIT's wind resistance is much stronger than ordinary folding umbrellas.Donate Now

Experience Convenience Without the Bulk Hello! I’m Patrick, inventor of SleekStrip. We spend so much time on our phones watching content and taking photos, it’s no wonder that phone stands and grips have become so popular. But why do they have to be so bulky?! After searching far and wide for a phone stand/grip that wasn’t awkward looking, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I knew there had to be a better way, especially since the bulkiness of most stands compromises your phone’s ability to charge wirelessly or fit into a car mount. Introducing: The SleekStrip SleekStrip is a breakthrough in phone stand technology! It’s the world’s thinnest phone stand and grip, so it doesn’t make your phone look bulky like most phone stands. SleekStrip is made of premium materials and tested for durability. Its unique patent-pending design features flexible metal with soft rubber coating for a comfortable grip. Featured on: Grip The SleekStrip grip ensures your phone will never slip out of your hands again. Stand The SleekStrip also acts as a stand with two different angles! Thin & Sleek Design Tremendous functionality without the bulk & design compromise. Strength Don't let the the thinness of SleekStrip fool you. It's stronger than it looks. Premium Materials, Comfort & Durability You might think that SleekStrip’s slim design would sacrifice its durability, but that’s simply not true. Even though SleekStrip is incredibly thin, it’s built with strong, durable materials that have been tested to ensure long-lasting durability, and it has a soft rubber coating that feels smooth to the touch.

SleekStrip’s sleek yet humble aesthetic is designed to complement the quality and style of your phone. Colour Combinations Designs that go well with any phone case. Base: Black, Chrome, or Gold Strip: Matte Black, White Marble, or Rainbow In the Package We Need Your Support Do you want a better phone stand/grip as much as we do? Help us bring this much-needed product to market! The funding we receive through this campaign will help us pay for the tooling and manufacturing costs required to make SleekStrip a reality. If you’re ready for a phone stand/grip that looks great and makes watching content on your phone and taking photos easier than ever, please make a pledge to our campaign! In addition to your pledge, you can also help us spread the word by sharing this campaign. We appreciate your support! Risks At this point, production-ready samples have been built and tested to validate the design and mechanism, and our manufacturing partner has also validated the feasibility of production at a viable cost. Please note that there could be minor changes and tweaks to the product design after the tooling is made and the product samples are tested. We will try our absolute best to ensure everyone receives the colour of their choice. However, in the event that the colour chosen is no longer available, those who have pledged earlier will have higher priority. If your colour selection is no longer available, you will be contacted and asked to select another colour option. Overall, if the funding goal is reached and the project can move to the next step, the risk of the SleekStrip not reaching the hands of our customers is very small.Donate Now
Overview How often do you stand in front of the dried-up remains of your plants and wonder what went wrong? Too much water? Too little? Wrong spot? Just like us humans, plants are living and sentient beings. It can be hard to understand exactly what they need and to decrypt all those silent messages they send us. The key to helping our plants survive and thrive without speaking the same language? It’s all about finding smarter, deeper ways to connect. This is why we developed the FYTA Beam. The FYTA Beam is a small sensor that connects your plants with your smartphone so you know when they need more water, fertilizer, or a different ambience. How does the FYTA Beam work? The FYTA Beam measures critical factors for a plant’s wellbeing, including - soil moisture - nutrition levels - light intensity and - temperature. Just insert it into the soil next to your plant and install the FYTA app – intelligent insights will be sent your way instantly via Bluetooth. The FYTA Beam will seamlessly monitor the plant’s living conditions to ensure that it stays within the correct limits for the type of plant that you have. And when it’s time for action, you’ll get a simple notification on you App. No more guess work, lots more “it works!”. If you have several plants, you can connect several FYTA Beams via Bluetooth with each other to create a network of up to 100m transmission range. The FYTA Beam: better than smart We couldn’t find a smart sensor that worked the way we wanted it to. Many existing sensors only measure one or two important parameters, have little design functionality, or are so badly designed that they look like they crash-landed from Planet Fugly. We wanted to do a better job! This is what makes our FYTA Beam different from other plant sensors: - Discrete: The FYTA Beam is small and has a reflective glass casing. It almost disappears in your planter. - Eco-friendly: It’s powered by a built-in solar cell that extends the life of the CR battery every day. All components are detachable so they can be recycled separately. - Accurate: It measures voltage across the entire length of its stainless-steel probes. This way it collects more data and calculates highly reliable values. - Adjustable: Have large plants? No problem. The probes are detachable and will be available in different lengths. - Customizable: Fancy a different feel? There will be different casing colors and designs available soon. - Good value: Did you know that many of our houseplants could easily outlast us if they received proper care? The FYTA Beam probably costs as little as your phone case - and is packed with really smart technology that will make your plants last longer. The FYTA App: more than a messenger The FYTA App does more than just check on your plants and nudge you in the right direction – it digs up a whole host of smart insights to help your relationship flourish in new ways: - Plant identification: Do you know what plants you actually have? No? Well, the app is here to help you identify them! - The FYTA plant library: Our plant library includes plant care instructions for all common houseplants. It keeps all plant information handy and in one place. Simple. - Virtual Garden: Create personal profiles for your plants and organize them in a virtual garden. Perfect if you have many to look after! - Customized notifications: Let your plants nudge you whenever they need something or simply choose how often you’d like to hear from your plants. - Tutorials: Enjoy fun tutorials that show you how to take better care of your plants. You’ll even learn how to make plant babies. Yes, you read that right. All of these features come together to help you do one spectacular thing: better understand your plants and eventually connect with them device-free. The FYTA Base: check on your plants while you’re away Leaving your beloved plants behind? Don’t fret. With the FYTA Base, it’s easy to check in on them while you’re away and share care instructions with a friend or neighbor, for instance via email. The FYTA Base is a WiFi hub that - connects all of your FYTA Beams to your home WiFi network, extending their range way further. - helps you manage multiple sensors with greater ease and security. - constantly monitors all FYTA Beams and uploads data to a secure cloud, allowing you to access critical insights whenever, wherever. - provides better notification and sharing options through the FYTA App. Prototyping We’ve been working for over 12 months on creating the FYTA eco-system: The FYTA Beam, The FYTA Base, the App and the cloud back-end. Developing the FYTA Beam was fun but challenging. A few things were straight-forward such as building an NTC-Thermistor into the microcontroller to measure temperature. In order to measure light intensity, we chose to use the current generated by a solar cell instead a photoiode ( which is commonly used). This approach helps to to prolong battery life. The most challenging part was to develop a capacitive soil moisture sensor which also measures the salinity of the soil. Finally, we had to figure out how to have the sensors interact in a Bluetooth Mesh Network. Over time we built several generations of sensors to test different aspects of the electronics and the Bluetooth communication. The following picture shows several of our prototypes: Eventually, over the course of months and three generations of prototypes, the FYTA Beam became what it is today. In this video, our engineer Jacob is demonstrating the basic functionality of the sensor within a Mesh network with the help of a third party Bluetooth application. Another important part of the process was the parameter calibration which we did with the help of a solar simulator (for light intensity). To calibrate the soil parameter, we used an array of soil samples with fixed values for moisture and salinity to derive the interdependency of both parameters. Finally, we compared our results with measurements taken with highly sensitive, professional measurement devices. Current Status and Next Steps Hardware development and programming is now complete. We have visited several manufactures in China and entered into an early stage cooperation with an experienced high-quality producer. We have a demo version of the App and are now working on connecting the devices to the FYTA App and FYTA server (about 50% done). We are aiming at completing this stage by end-July to have sufficient time for further testing and calibrations before we order the first batch of products. Why Indiegogo? We have sufficient funds to complete the development process of the FYTA Beam. We have successfully collected funds on Kickstarter to finance the tools required for mass production with our manufacturing partner and run a test production of the alpha units. We are now taking pre-orders for the first production batch which we like to deliver to a dedicated group of early adopters that help us · to improve the FYTA Beam eco-system with the help of your feedback. · to connect people to plants all over the world Perks Our perks include the following products: The FYTA Beam System The FYTA Beam System consists of the FYTA Beam, the FYTA App and the optional FYTA Base. Our rewards include single Beams, as well as three different bundles (Plant Lover, Plant Addict, and Plant Nerd) to meet different needs. Soil pH Test Kit Plants need to sit in the right potting mix to to grow and thrive.

This generator uses no gas, oil, sun, batteries, wind, diesel fuel, it only uses rare earth magnets to generate power. This means once you get your unit take it out of the box and it is ready to go. We have a 3 year warranty on our product for your peace of mind, who else can say that? Short Summary Tim Slavings, the inventor of the U-Plug Green portable generator, has been involved in the energy and electronics industries for more than forty years. He has handled electronic equipment contracts for airports and other secured locations throughout the country.In the energy industry, he has developed more efficient wind and solar energy systems that he marketed through one of his previous companies. He has been developing the concept, plans, designs and prototypes of the U-Plug Green generator for the last twenty years. We successfully tested and demonstrated a prototype of the U-Plug for two years. The current production model went through independent testing in February and March, 2015 at an energy power testing facility in the State of Missouri. We are bringing this generator to the public market to help offset the use of fossil fuels, and to help clean the air for everyone. Our generator will save people money, and provide power in any natural disaster, and is also the perfect system for homes to be totally off-grid.This generator is only 24 inches tall, 6 inches in diameter, produces 115 volts at 17.3 amps of power, and weighs only 20 pounds. That is truly a powerful generator in a compact size.When you contribute to our campaign you will be helping to save our natural resources, while cleaning our air, saving our precious water, and making the world a better place for everyone. How it works We developed a simplified planetary gear system with multiple shafts that have our magnets in them. Each magnet can pick up over 2500 pounds each. There are several magnets per shaft, and when they are in the proper position they begin to spin. This will cause a push pull type of effect that has worked quite well for over 2 1/2 years. Then we surround the unit with the field coils to generate the power.We cannot give to much more info without divulging our secrets, so we have kept this explanation as simple as it is.The U-Plug Green system will generate between 17.25 amps and 19.25 amps. and is controlled by 2 circuit boards located at the top of the unit. We have set the unit at 2000 watts maximum for reliability. The circuit boards control the speed, amperage, and the output wattage so that the coils are not damaged. Other safety devices inside the unit are provided in case water gets inside, and to protect it from overheating.Maximum operating temp, Fahrenheit, is 125 degrees and so far we have found that the unit will operate at -60 degrees with no problems.When you purchase our product it comes with a 3 year warranty. Timeline of progressWhat We Need & What You GetWe are seeking $250,000 for building space, raw materials, and additional workers. We know that this only begins our journey together. We also know that the U-Plug Green Generator will attract additional interest and additional funding once you begin to envision how the generator will help you, your friends and family. A generator that can sit inside your home, at your camp site, or work site, while making virtually no noise, is a generator you will love to own. In turn, your friends and family will love to own one for themselves, and will help us sell many more units.Should as few as 1500 people choose to buy their own unit from this campaign, we will have raised all the funds necessary to complete our factory, order the raw materials, train the workers, and begin production, without seeking outside funding. From those 1500 people, we would raise $2,242,500, allowing us to reach full production more quickly than we have anticipated. We would then be able to make decisions that impact the way we can produce more units. Should you as a contributor purchase one of these units and then purchase a grid-tie unit from the internet, you would be able to use your generator to make your electric meter run backwards. Yes, it will go backwards at times, and the power company will have to pay you for your power. As you can see, your unit will pay for itself many times and in many ways, as you use your U-Plug Green generator. We have special pricing of $1,495.00 on the U-Plug Green generator for those who order during this campaign only. After this campaign, the price will be $1,795.00 each. That is an instant savings of $300.00 for everyone who orders now.There are also dealership pricing packages for those who want to help us and grow your business at the same time. Our 10 pack or more generator packages allow our subscribers to become distributors. As distributors, we will work with you to help you be successful in retailing the U-Plug Green generators. In accordance with that goal, there will be semi-annual reviews to evaluate the performance of our distributors, making recommendations and changes as needed.Should we not reach our goal, we will continue to build 1 unit for one person, one household, one business, one community at a time. We believe in those who see this as a necessary product which is needed and wanted worldwide, so every dollar we receive will go to bring this generator to each of you. Every person that contributes to this campaign will receive a gift certificate for $100.00 off the MSRP, simply email us your address and we will send you one for future use.The ImpactYou, as one of our contributors, will have peace of mind knowing you have a generator which can provide clean power in all situations you will encounter. You will also be on the forefront of green energy production, which will lead to cleaner air and water for our world. You will feel comfortable and confident that you will be helping to reduce dangerous and harmful pollutants. Risks & ChallengesWe have been working on the U-Plug Green generator for several years. The result, as you can see in the videos, are generators ready for mass production. We have achieved a continuous running, portable generator where all others have failed. However, this is not perpetual motion; the generator will eventually slow down and stop producing electricity in about 20 years when there is to much magnetic loss. We have assembled a team of business professionals for every stage of our project, including accountants, attorneys, risk management advisors, electrical technicians, machinists, state business managers, and skilled laborers. Other Ways You Can HelpBe sure to tell your friends about this clean new generator, we are grateful for your help. You can spread the word on Facebook or anywhere you may go.Thank you,Tim SlavingsU-Plug Products L.L.C.Donate Now
