A bricked Hexiwear

Bricked in the sense of being attached to a brick wall. Thumbs up for this Hexiwear wall mount created by Aleksandar, a Kickstarter backer. The creator of this pronged Hexiwear wall-mount is also behind a similar piece for Flip & click (we knew that those hexagons were foreshadowing a Hexiwear-related project to come). Or maybe it’s just because these days we — at least half a dozen of our staff members – are highly attuned to seeing hexagons everywhere we look. A…

Peek over our designer’s shoulder to see early desings for Hexiwear packagings

The desired outcome is always the same: create a box that protects the product inside, makes the product more appealing, and does it in an economical way. For Danijela, our graphic designer, it’s an exercise in visual thinking. “I’m not looking at Hexiwear,” she says, “I’m looking at the empty space around it. For example, imagine the empty space inside a glove. It is shaped like a hand, bordered by the inner lining of the glove. But turn the glove inside out,…

New stretch goals for Hexiwear based on survey results

These new stretch goals are based on results of the survey we ran back when we reached our initial funding goal. Many people asked us to add a certain hardware functionality, like GPS, or GSM, or NFC. And while some of those requests were more popular than others, none had the critical mass to justify changing the original hardware design (which would have increased the price of the Hexiwear unit). Instead, we decided to make a single mikroBUS™ expander that will allow you…
