We are excited to share that our Kickstarter campaign for the TruGlide Apex Stylus has been extremely successful to date. Our goal was to raise $24,000 to create our new stylus, and we have reached $103,466 in donations. That's 430% funded!
The TruGlide Apex is a fine point, electronic stylus with the smallest tip available, only 2.4mm. This new stylus will make writing on your iPad as easy as writing on paper. Just twist to turn it on, and write to your heart's desire.
Are you an early adopter? College student who takes class notes on your iPad? Live in the Arctic and need a great stylus for your iPad because you wear gloves 24/7? Eco-friendly, self-proclaimed tree hugger who wants to go paperless to save the earth? Then the TruGlide Apex is perfect for you!
Here is our Kickstarter video, in case you haven't seen it. After watching it, you'll probably be as excited as we are about our new stylus!
Kickstarter offers an incredible opportunity for anyone to fund their dreams. It's not just technology, either. People have also funded films, art, comics, fashion, and more through Kickstarter. This graph from Masters of Media is about a year old, but it's still interesting to see the categories and successful vs. unsuccesssful campaigns.
Kickstarter updates their impressive statistics page every day. Check out what they've done to date:

We set out with the goal of raising $24,000 for the TruGlide Apex. As you can see in the above graph (courtesy of the Kickstarter Blog), only 10% of successfully funded projects raised $20,000 to $99,999. Well, as I mentioned at the beginning of this article.... $103,466 has been pledged toward our project so far - placing the TruGlide Apex in that 2% slice of the graph!!!
Thank you so much to all of you who have donated so far. If you haven't.... there's still time! Our Kickstarter campaign runs until November 10. Our goal is to get the Apex in your hands by December (donors) or January (everybody else). If you'd like to be one of the first to receive the TruGlide Apex, click here to donate! You can choose a reward to go with your donation, anything from a Smartie Cloth to an iPad case/TruGlide Pro Stylus/Apex stand bundle.
