With just under a month to go, iGino need your help to crowd fund their sex toy idea the iGino One.
Crowd Funding/Crowd Sourcing is a great way for companies to get their product from paper to reality. Using sites such as indiegogo and kickstarter a person can put their idea up online and ask the general public for a small donation with the hope it’ll reach the amount they require to go into product with their idea. In iGino’s case it’s the clitoral stimulator iGino One. Below is the iGino’s inventor Andrea Miller explaining the iGino
The iGino uses vibraMoove which is a a technology they’ve patented. Combining vibrations with movement the tip/head of the personal vibrator is meant to mimic the natural movement of a woman’s finger. This combined with the warm finish of the skin-touch head (which pops over the tip) will apparently add to the intensity of your pleasure.
One of the little features we like about the toy is the protective cover that pops onto the top of the head to keep it nice and clean. With the toy you get a velvet pouch, a USB cable, a flip out USB stick which plug directly into your laptop to charge (again something we like) and an EU to US plug adapter.
The toy looks nice and compact (smaller than an iPhone) and would fit in your back pocket, but also nice a thin so it can fit between two bodies during sex. For a first sex toy design from iGino I think it’s been really nicely thought out and well planned. The design of the product and packaging is very clean and nonthreatening.
Do you like what you see? The guys at iGino hope to raise $30,000 to enable them to go into mass production with the iGino One. To help the guys out you can visit Indiegogo to contribute to their funding. Depending on the amount you contribute, iGino offer some special “perks”. Contribute $5 (£3.29) and you’ll get a mention on their founders page of their website and 20% discount of their ecommerce site. Contribute $69 (£45) and you’ll get a iGino one. $125 (£82) will get you 3 iGino’s, $1650 (£1086) will get you 30 iGino’s.
So contributing £45 will not only get you what seems to be a pretty good sex toy, but also you’ll be helping a small independent sex toy company get into production.
Fingers crossed for iGino, I hope they manage to get the full funding for their project in the next month. We look forward to finding out if you manage it, but also what other sex toys you invent 🙂
