Today on the Crowdfunding Cast the Indiegogo and Kickstarter podcast I spoke with Dave about his Kickstarter campaign. Check it out on Kickstarter!
Here is a summery of the campaign
Qbit: a modern interpretation of an ancient tool!
The earliest known measuring device, the Cubit ruler, made building everything from roads to the Great Pyramids possible. It was the first portable, standardized measurement system for designing & building new things – the ‘original’ maker’s tool!
Ancient tool > modern interpretation
Part tactile artifact, ALL function – Qbit is a modern interpretation of this 4,000+ year-old tool. Inspired by its original rod form, Qbit is precision-turned on a Swiss CNC lathe, with machined Standard or Metric scales and laser-etched graphics. Each comes with an adjustable marker for transferring measurements, making guide marks, measuring depth or simply remembering an important dimension on a trip to the hardware store.
