  • Comments Off on SA Pacific Custom Keycaps On Kickstarter

Looking for custom keycaps? There is a new and exciting Kickstarter by Joel Collins of SA Pacific that may have the product for you. The product is custom key caps suitable for any mechanical style keyboards, (like corsair, razer, etc.). If you are like me you think of computer keyboards as a tool, a means to an end. Custom key caps are not something that I usally think about. I have owned a “customized” keyboard in the past, but it was customized by the manufaturer, not by me. SA Pacific has made me think of computer keyboards in a whole new way. The company featured on Kickstarter allows you to fully customize your keyboard in a pleasing Lockheed Martin inspired color pallete. Boring keyboards will be a thing of the past with this new custom computer keycap set by Joel Collins of SA Pacific.

In order for this project to get funded they need to have more backers in the next few days.

The Keyboard Profile

The keycap set is said to be “soothing, electrifying, and comforting, all at once.” I’d encourage you to at least watch the intro video about the campaign it explains a lot. There is passion behind this campaign. The blue color pallete is inspired by Lockheed Martin. Why Lockheed Martin you ask? Mr. Collins is a Computer Scientist, Physicist, Chemist, and mathematician. Currently, he’s working as a Research Scientist at Lockheed Martin. He has partnered with Signature plastics, Space Cables, and Specter Custom Mousepads to complete this Kickstarter. Signature plastics is well known in the custom keyboard community and has a great reputation. The line of products doesn’t just stop at keyboards, you will be able to purchase a custom cable and desk mat which will be color coordinated. “These two add-on extras will be available as part of the add-on beta program. The Custom cable will feature a USB-c, chrome plated, detachable, and color coordinated mesh sleeve that will help to accent the keycaps set. The large mousepad will be XXL (35″x15″) and 3mm thick. The add-on versions of these items will be 10-15% cheaper than the stand-alone rewards for those items.” In a world where everyone owns and wears the same thing in order to stand out from anyone backing gigs on Kickstarter is a great way to get something you won’t find anywhere else. It will inspire your work for years to come.

Keyboard On Table

This is not just any generic keycap set. The base product features 104-keys, SA profile (1-1-2-3-4-3). It’s made of thick plastic, quality you can feel as you type. The plastic is highly sculpted to further improve the typing experience. For a limited time on Kickstart get the exclusive Pantone coated plastic keys. Once the $15,000 project goal has been reached an exciting add-on kit will be unlocked for $1. This bonus key cap kit will feature 21 Lockheed Martin specific legends (See Picture Below).

Custom Keys

Then, if that wasn’t enough, once the $17,000 threshold goal is reached a $55 add-on for custom cable package will be posted. “This custom cable will be a custom Cerakote color combination, with Dark blue base color, Pacific blue mesh, chrome aviator plug, Coiled, USB-C, 1.5m in length.” But wait there’s more! 🙂 if/when this Kickstarter reaches the $19,000 threshold there is another bonus that will be unlocked. You will be able to purchase a XXL desk mat for $45. These 35×15, 3mm thick desk mats will feature a custom design. There’s even more! At the $20,000 level another colorway version of the Keycap artisans and keycaps will be available as add-on.

Kickstarter Levels Of Support

First level of support is $10 or above. Support at this level just because you believe in the idea and want to help Collins out. The next level of backing is $50, this gets you a thank you note and a XXL watercolor deskmat. $65 gets you a custom space cable and thank you card. Pledge $110 and that gets you a custom XXL mat and custom space cable. Pledge $184 or more and that gets you the keycap set custom version and dark version. These items will ship anywhere in the world. No matter where you are backing from he will ship to you.


I’ve actually been in the market for a new keyboard. I might have to snag one of these custom cool Lockheed Martin inspired keyboard cap sets. Even if you don’t know much about Lockheed Martin these keys are very pleasant to look at from just an aesthetics point of view. Since we are spending more time than ever behind a computer and a screen during the pandemic why not make the entire experience as satisfying as possible. Consider supporting SA Pacific and Joel Collins today on Kickstarter. Who knows may you might write your next novel on his set of keys.

Watch the Kickstarter video and you’ll see what I mean. Some of the bags featured in the video are based on a leather jacket and tuxedo. It’s one of the most unique clutch bags I’ve seen actually.

Pantrybag 2 in 1 Reusable Shopping Bag On Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on Pantrybag 2 in 1 Reusable Shopping Bag On Kickstarter

When I saw this campaign on Kickstarter I immediately thought it would be the perfect bag invention to review on my blog. My city charges 5 cents per paper shopping bag used to encourage shoppers to bring their own bags. The Pantrybag could become my go to shopping bag from now on because of some unique key features.

What is the Pantrybag?

The story of the Pantrybag started about 4 years ago. The inventor was at a bus stop and noticed a person gathering plastic Walmart bags and how long it took to gather up all the handles. The man made about 4 trips to get all the bags inside the bus. This is when the inventor had an eureka moment. “How can this be done more efficiently and save time.” He immediately went home and started coming up with designs to solve this issue facing shoppers all around planet Earth.

Find Pantrybags on Kickstarter

Pantrybags Logo

The Problem

The main problem was plastic bags used for shopping don’t stand on its own and for you to carry lots of the bags creates another problem – so many handles to carry.

The Solution

The inventor observed that when people tie bags together it’s much easier to carry more items and it also gives the bag self standing capability. This idea was enough inspiration to create what is now called the Pantrybag.

Pantrybag is born! The world may never be the same.

The Benefits

Key benefits of the Pantrybag.

– Eco friendly
– Double bag with single handle
– Stands on its own
– Environmental friendly
– Attractive ingenious design

Additional Bag Features

– Light weight design
– Carried above 100 pounds
– Fits in one’s pocket
– Machine washable. This is a huge one, because one of the main reasons I don’t use reusable bags is for this reason.
– Durable ripstop polyester and tyvek
– Waterproof and non coated
– Equivalent to 7 standard grocery bags
– Can be used as a bag for other things, such as a picnic
– Made from recycled plastic bottles

What Next?

The samples have been created, they’ve been tested, but in order to launch the bag at full scale the company needs your support on Kickstarter. That’s where you come in. Please consider supporting the company on Kickstarter.

The funding goal is $5,000 and they haven’t met this yet. Pledge $15 or more and get the bag, pouch, and keyholder. Pledge $185 or more and times the order of the $15 contribution plus 20. 20x return! Wow, those are some great rewards.

Seems like a cool idea, definitely something needs to be done about the lame, boring bags you see at the grocery store. There is huge opportunity in this space so I cant wait to see what’s next for Pantrybag Inc. in the future.

The Button Witch Indie Game On Kickstarter

  • Comments Off on The Button Witch Indie Game On Kickstarter

As a kid I was a huge fan of RPG games. Some of my favorite RPG games for Nintendo and Super Nintendo were Zelda, Dragon Warrior, and the  Final Fantasy series. That later carried into PlayStation with more Final Fantasy and then to the Xbox Consoles and beyond. That’s why I knew I had to review a new indie, 2D pixel, retro feel, RPG game called The Button Witch by DDreams Games when I saw it.

– Visit the Official DDreams Games Button Witch Website:

– Get more information and see a demo of the game. The company is also very active in Twitter.

– Support DDreams Games on Kickstarter

The Button Witch

Gameplay and Plot

The Button Witch is complete with puzzles, interactive magic, escape rooms, riddles, and even a talking squirrel ghost. The plot begins with Ellen and her quest to complete an internship at the Witch Academy and find out what happened in her supervisor’s Manor. Ellen is a young witch who has been accepted for a exclusive internship before she can take the SAT (Superior Arcane Training) exam.

The Button Witch Gameplay

The game includes many interesting characters, plot full of twists, multiple endings, original music, original artwork by Italian artist Caterina Capogrossi, and even a unique magic system (See below).

Magic System: “Spells that interact with the enviroment, such as the “Magnet Spell” to move metal objects and the “Light Spell” to light up small fires or turn on lights! Unlock more as you progress with the story!”

One of my favorite things about playing RPG games is how you could get lost in them for days. The progression of the game, the leveling up, and the seemingly endless environment one could explore. The Button Witch takes the best of the retro gaming games and packages it into a modern fresh game with a retro feel.

Kickstarter Progress

The Kickstarter goal is $3,308 and there are only 28 days to go in the campaign at the time of this writing. If nothing else visit the Kickstarter for a preview of the ghost squirrel that will be featured in the game.

What’s Next For DDreams Games

DDreams Games and developer Jacopo Lorenzetti are moving full speed ahead with the development and launch of this indie game. They launched a Kickstarter around Christmas that still needs your support. There are many benefits to being a Kickstarter supporter including seeing your own statue in the game, your character as a talking portrait with bust artwork, to designing a puzzle room, and more.

The game looks like it’s going to be a good one, check it out and get into contact with the company if interested. It’s going to be fun!


UPstage The New App Designed For Theatre Professionals

  • Comments Off on UPstage The New App Designed For Theatre Professionals

Are you a theatre professional looking to connect with the public and promote the play you are working on? There is a new app for that called Upstage. It’s an app specifically designed for theatre professionals and it needs your help on Kickstarter.

Visit their Kickstarter page today for more information:

Who are theatre professionals you might ask? Theatre professionals include theatre companies, actors, production teams, stage crew, playwrites, and even the venue itself. Theatre professionals include Upstage has set a goal of $5,000 in order to develop and go live with this app.

This is such a great idea!

Here is what the app looks like so far:

Add a play, catalog of plays, personnel, calendar, submissions, auditions, rehearsals, and search.

The app essentially lets multiple artists collaborate in real time via the UpStage platform to create and present live theatrical performances.

Industry Features Include:

You can search for plays one wants to produce, if the desired play is not found the theatre company can request submissions from playwrights, search jobs, search for auditions, create and send rehearsal notes, search for venues once you have show. Once you have done all this now you can promote the show and find an audience within 50 miles of your phone. Your actors, production team, and stage crew no longer have to update their resume that they were in your show. Upstage keeps a IMDB record of their work history.

Features For Average Customer:

You’ll get a preview of the play, who’s in the play, rating, playbill, driving directions, call the box office, buy a ticket, leave a review, and see how others review the play.

Any Kickstarter Bonuses?

Yes, there are several for this campaign. $1 gets you honorable mention, $50 gets you an account on UPstage for one year as a playwrite, actor, or production staff. $100 gets you all of the previous plus honorable mention on their website and mention on playbill. $200 gets you a full feature account for one year. The bonuses go all the way up to $5,000. This pledge gets you entry into Upstage introductory rates for the next 7 years, listing on the web site, listing on the playbill at annual festival in Chicago, listed in credits of their TV show, and they will create TV episodes for your plays for two years which air on cable access.


As a consumer I could definitely see myself checking this app regularly. I’m actually going to see West Side Story next month, but it would be nice to see additional plays at smaller theaters. Whenever I’ve seen a play in the past I usually search the largest theaters in my city or Ticketmaster directly. Since this app will allow more theater productions to happen me as a customer will be able to see a greater number of plays.

Upstage began development back in 2003 by programmer Douglas Bagnall and is still one of a kind. It’s the only platform that is all things theatre under one roof. The Upstage team have worked on this project for the past six years to perfect it and get it ready for this Kickstarter moment. Upstage is expected to arrive October 2019. Consider supporting their Kickstart campaign today. They have already created the product so there is no risk of not receiving delivery.

Kickstarter Campaign:

Kickstarter Cable Management

I plan on organizing my space very soon, there is something calming about an organized office. Kind of like making your bed in the morning an organized office starts your day out on the right foot.

The cable solution is unlike anything I’ve seen before. The cable system is made up of modules that connect together behind one’s desk and fit together to hide and protect all the cables on one’s desk.

Here’s what makes the system so special:

– The long module contains your main cables.

– The T-module splits the cable in different directions.

– The corner module splits cable out in different directions in different corners of the desk.

– There are extension modules that one can use to fit the system to any size desk or room.

– The big module support of 5-8 cables, the medium module supports 3-5 cables, and the small modules support 1-2 cables.

The pieces fit together like LEGO blocks. You can customize them in virtually any way you want to. It’s not just limited to one’s desk either. There’s a store where I live called the Container Store, it’s a store dedicated to finding organizing solutions. They definitely need this cable management system by GreenLanternLabs on their shelves.

So what are you waiting for? Get your space organized in 2019. These things start shipping in February 2019.
