Modos | a tool free, reconfigurable furniture system. by Matt Tyson

Kickstarter Updates
As Seen On :  How it works:The Connectors- After extensive research and numerous iterations, we have simplified the hardware down to 3 extruded aluminum profiles. The extrusions are cut into 1” sections, surface finished, and clear anodized (with the possibility of colors).The Boards - We use sustainably harvested, FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) furniture grade plywood, laminated with formaldehyde free glue, made by Columbia Forest Products. The plywood is pre-finished with maple or walnut veneers. The boards are made from 15 layers of wood, totaling ¾” thick, making them extremely strong and durable. The Geometry- We designed the connectors to friction fit with the boards. By inserting a ¾” board into the connector, the aluminum is forced to flex and compress on the neighboring board, further increasing the friction. The properties…

Men of Game Development 2015 by No Goblin

Kickstarter Updates
You demanded, we listened. The Men of Game Development calendar is back for 2015! This time we're bigger, better, and bolder than ever before. Last year, we started the Men of Game Development calendar as a Kickstarter reward for a different project. The response was overwhelming, to the point where people were backing for the calendar and not for the initial project we were Kickstarting! A shot of Manveer Heir in last year's calendar. After making hundreds of reward calendars, we started wondering what we could do with the Men of Game Development if we treated it with the full backing and support it deserved. What crazy talent could we find with the prestige of the first calendar behind us? What if we had stretch goals for professional photography and video…
