Path to Success: Week 24

As always, I’m bringing you new products and updates on popular projects! Stay informed with our video series Path to Success which gives you a weekly update. Be sure to subscribe to stay in the loop on the latest and greatest crowdfunded technology projects.

This week I’m going off the books and doing a written update. If you’re new to Vox Inventum, you can find my weekly update videos on YouTube. With it being a holiday weekend, however, I don’t have the time to record a video for you. So enjoy a change of pace!

UPDATES

First up, let me update you on two products that I talked about last week. I won’t get super detailed as each of these products can be read about on our website. Find the links within this article!

Digitsole Smartshoe

The Digitsole Smartshoe, which has been mentioned multiple times in Path to Success, is wrapping things up. They’ve achieved around $112,000 on Kickstarter and have about 2 days left on the campaign.

The developers have really hyped up the $150,000 stretch goal, which they announced with 5 days left on the campaign. There was a big poll to see what color they would make next and white won out over silver. Unfortunately, that color will probably never see the light of day as the stretch goal is out of reach at this point.

Backing seems to have fizzled, but I think that this project is a premonition of smart technology development. We should see smart shoes start to gain popularity in the coming years. Stick with us and we’ll keep you informed!

Mistbox

Next up, Mistbox brought a unique solution to struggling AC units with pre-cooling technology. On Kickstarter, Mistbox has done very well. They have achieved $155,000 and still have 41 days to go. Their funds have slowed a little since they earned $75,000 in just 2 days. However, they’re still earning a steady donation.

There aren’t any real updates to the Mistbox. It is a subscription based product which doesn’t excite me. Also, this is a complete product without any real wiggle-room for stretch goals. Overall, what you see is what you get and the product is pretty neat. Make sure you read my detailed write-up for some good insight.

NEW

As always, I like to introduce a new product into Path to Success. This week I wanted to bring forward another keyboard. I know, you’ve seen at least 3 keyboards on this website already, but I think this one deserves a mention.

Whitefox Mechanical Keyboard

The Whitefox Mechanical Keyboard is a professional grade keyboard tooled with quality in mind. It’s a cut-down keyboard with an aluminum body and full customization. What makes Whitefox better than most is the customization on the BIOS side. The software backing this keyboard is something special and worth checking out.

Input Club, the developers, are currently exploring using a USB Type-A connector in place of the originally designed Type-C. This is an exciting development pushing the new connector forward.

The campaign has achieved over $177,000 of their $100,000 goal and has not released any stretch goals. The campaign still has 22 days remaining so we’ll be watching closely for any new developments.

That’s going to wrap things up! Thanks for faithfully reading up on our website and I hope that you tune in daily! Be sure check out our YouTube page for a weekly update that keeps you informed on the latest crowdfunding news.
