Being last to pitch was definitely nerve-racking. I think I paced a hole into the floor at Autodesk.
What got me through it was looking at all the gorgeous creations in the gallery and thinking about how all of my Haxlr8r friends were rooting for me.
Our friend Miya from Sassor gifted me with some mind controlled cat ears, called the Necomimi, before I had to go on and it did a great deal to distract and entertain me.
With all these great forces behind me, I went on stage and burst right out of my shell. The audience laughed and clapped loudly and I left the stage feeling high.
The next day, we all watched slack-jawed as all the press rolled in:
Bloomberg, CNET, Wired, Engadget, and MAKE were some of the first media on the scene to scoop the story. Sweating through my dress was totally worth it. OurKickstarter surpassed 100K in just three days, making us one of the fastest launching Kickstarter projects ever. Currently we are at 80% of our goal and we are ecstatic at the outpouring of support from makers and food lovers alike.
It’s been an amazing journey and things are just heating up! Thanks for following us through it all.
