A lot of the longtime members here are aware of my PhatGrip project that I've been grinding on for the past couple of years. for the newer members who may not know what PhatGrip is, they are grips designed to fit onto the handles of your game controller for a more comfortable gaming experience. Those of you who spend a lot of time in the lab and in games on a daily basis will truly appreciate the improvement.
After several iterations, design changes, surface texture research, continuous back and forth with my manufacturer on pricing, UPS on overseas bulk shipping, legal team work with my attorney from Holland Hart along with the feedback help from many people, including the guys here at VG who were in the early Focus Group, I've finally got the PS3 version ready to go into a first run production effort.
But it takes quite a bit of $$ to get a manufacturing project such as this off the ground for a little guy like me. To make that happen, I decided to take it to a crowdfunding effort at indiegogo. You can check it out at http://tinyurl.com/c8svq62
Yes that's me in the video.
I decided to put together a special deal for the members here at maddentips.com. If you pre-order, I will include another set for free. For me to do that, you MUST - ABSOLUTELY MUST - include your forum name and that you are from maddentips.com in the comment section of the pre-order itself. An example would be "nevadaballin from maddentips". That way I can separate your pre-orders from the others to ensure you get the free set. This is for the Comment Section of your actual PRE-ORDER and not the comment section of the project.
For the members who were part of the Focus Group, you have not been forgotten. If the campaign reaches it's goal and the production run happens, all of YOU will get a free set as promised, without having to pre-order. But it only happens if I reach the goal.
Go check it out, pre-order a set, tell your friends, link it to your facebook, google plus, pass it along in twitter, etc. If you have any questions I'll be more than happy to answer them here.
