This project is a total success! But you can still get one for yourself!  Switch can be used while camping, reading in bed, in the closet, outdoors, with frightened children and anywhere else you might need light. It can used hands-free.

Switch features a unique alloy neck which can be molded into any shape to suit your needs, providing cable-free lighting with unparalleled flexibility. Need some “enlightenment” for a circuit board project? Need a light for your grill? Need to brighten up a dark basement? No problem! With some simple bending and twisting, Switch can cater to any occasion wherever and whenever you need light. After that, the belt can be straightened easily to return to your reading lamp; Switch is then ready to fulfill all your other lighting needs and to free your hands while you work or play in the light.

Switch is carefully engineered and passionately crafted. A high capacity lithium ion battery, an energy-efficient LED lighting module, and an energy management chip are generously packed into an extraordinarily compact device with dimensions of merely 4.25’’X2.5’’X1.25’’. It can also comfortably fit into your pocket, clutch, backpack, etc. Weighing only 0.55 pounds, you can barely feel Switch while wearing it. Despite its elegance and compactness, Switch is extremely durable: it can support your lighting needs for 8-14 hours. There is an elegant edition and a sporty edition.

The perks include more than just buying the lamp. You can be a partner/distributor, spend the day with the development team in Connecticut or buy multiple lamps.

Baltimore Hacker Space is Crowdfunding

This non-profit technology educational facility is home to many great projects. Projects that people can’t work on at home ( not everyone has a garage). It has been member funded in the past and provided tools and training for anyone wanting to build something special. Their expenses recently went up. Here is what happened in their words. “Recently, our landlord “discovered” a number water bills that he’d missed over the past two years, and he’s passing that expense on to us. So we’ve run the numbers, and our $5,000 goal will keep us financially stable and allow us to focus on community outreach for the next two years. As a 501(c)3 charity, we work to promote growth and learning in our community by providing people a place to learn and work in a positive and collaborative environment. We are sustained by our membership dues. However, we do open up all of our classes and events to non-members. We try to provide at least 2-3 days per week where non-members can come in and work with our facilities.”
It’s all about helping a community resource stay a community resource. You can sponsor a go-cart. You can get T-shirts and even book some time in the shop to work on your ideas. You can have a storm trooper visit you or even pick up a years membership.
