Josh Wright and June Lai are relying on Kickstarter to help realize their project EscapeCapsule into reality. So far, there are 73 backers and pledge money is around $6,485. The goal is to get $30,000 in pledge money, because with that amount the two can mass produce enough EscapeCapsule for the market, I guess.
EscapeCapsule is sleek and cool. It is a case for iPhone 4 that promises to protect users’ iPhone 4s from snow, sand, water, and shock. Basically, you can swim in the ocean with your iPhone 4 as long it is encapsulated with EscapeCapsule.
The video at Kickstarter shows that EscapeCapsule isn’t a product of concept, but it’s already a full/complete product since Josh Wright and June Lai had used it in water and so on within the video to demonstrate to us that it’s indeed a working product. According to Techcrunch article “EscapeCapsule Lets You Use Your iPhone 4 In Water, Sand, Mud, Snow, And Other Gross Stuff,” users only have to pay $50 for pledging, but EscapeCapsule will cost around $70 for the users who do not pledge. Check out EscapeCapsule in action on Kickstarter’s article “EscapeCapsule – Waterproof iPhone 4 Case.”
I wonder, if Josh Wright and June Lai are able to make EscapeCapsule a successful product for iPhone 4, they might want to try to upgrade EscapeCapsule for iPhone 5 too. So, in another way of saying, I guess some of us who admire this product need to hurry up and pledge a $50. For me, I’m sort of in a tight budget situation, and so I pledge by writing about EscapeCapsule in this blog post, and I might get it at $70 price range when it comes out to the market.
Clarification: Don’t expect this very blog post of mine to conclude that EscapeCapsule is a great product and has worked as advertise, because I do not truly know its true capability unless I have one; so far I don’t!
