We started with an idea, and pushed technology to the limit to make it happen.
Now, we need your help to realize our dream.
Grasshopper is built to be part of your life. Whether you're climbing a mountain, sitting at a cafe, or just lounging around the house, Grasshopper will always provide. A durable and ergonomic design make it perfect for just about everyone.
We worked hard to create a device that was simple, powerful and rugged. These attributes are at the very core of Grasshopper, and are the key to unlocking your freedom to roam.
On the outside, Grasshopper is incredibly simple. Four basic parts work together to deliver an easy and powerful experience. Each of these parts was designed and redesigned around usability, durability and functionality. Every millimeter of space was used to maximize battery capacity while maintaining a sleek, elegant design.
Technical Details - Simplicity Through Design
Grasshopper utilizes advanced technology in both its design and manufacture. By using the best materials and processes available, we've ensured the maximum possible efficiency, durability and battery life.
Exterior - By constructing the entire housing from stainless steel, we've made it incredibly thin while maintaining excellent durability. A thin, strong housing maximizes interior space, allowing for a larger battery and chamber.
Circuitry - Grasshopper uses a pair of microprocessors to monitor user input and precisely control temperature. These microprocessors communicate through the metal housing of Grasshopper, relaying information from one end to the other. This allows us to build Grasshopper with no wires. This saves space, increases reliability, and reduces the cost of manufacture.
Heater - The heater is one of the most innovative elements of Grasshopper. Using Direct Metal Laser Sintering, (a type of metal 3D printing), we've created an extremely compact heat exchanger with very little flow resistance. A 30 Watt heating element means that Grasshopper will always keep up, no matter how aggressive your usage.

Oils Front-end $40 - The Oils Front-end will go into the design and testing phases if we reach this goal, $40 will reserve one for when it's released in late Spring.
Manufacturing and Production
Delivering a product of the highest quality is our main focus. Straightforward assembly, quality control, and a flexible supply chain have been part of the design process from the very beginning. Grasshopper will be 100% hand assembled at our own facility in the USA. This allows us to personally inspect each component as it becomes part of a Grasshopper.
CNC machining has been sourced to an Australian manufacturer, which lowers costs without sacrificing quality. We've already developed a solid relationship, and expect things to go smoothly.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can I contact with questions? - You can send an email any time to email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
How can I order accessories? - You can add any of the accessories to your order by adding their price to your contribution amount. After you make your contribution, send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning what accessories you've added and the total value of your contribution. For example: A $99.00 Standard Grasshopper with an extra $5 battery. Contribute $104, and then send a quick email mentioning that the extra $5 was for the battery.
I've already made an order, but I'd like to add some additional accessories. - You can add accessories at any time, even after you've placed an order. Just click the "Contribute Now" button on the upper right-hand side of the page, and contribute again for the price of the accessories you've added. When you've checked out, send a short email to email@example.com telling us what you did.
Do I need to add international shipping to Canada? - Yes, but if the shipping ends up costing less than $20, we'll issue you a refund for the difference.
Do I need to add extra shipping for more than one Grasshopper? - No, if the number of Grasshoppers you are ordering is 4 or less, you can just pay the $20 shipping. If ordering more than 4, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Can my buddies and I make an order together to save on shipping? - Yes, see the above question for details. They must all be shipped to the same address.
Will shipping be discreet? - Yes, we know this is important to you. Items will be shipped in a plain box, free from any of our branding.
What's the difference between the Titanium and Stainless Steel versions? - The Titanium (Ti) version is 33% lighter in weight (39 vs. 58 grams), and has a more durable exterior than the Stainless version. It also has a slightly greenish tint. See the new image that's been added above. The innards of both are identical.
How long does the battery take to charge? - This depends on what type of USB port you're using. A high-current wall charger (like the kind for the iPad) will take 1 hour, while charging from a computer will take 2-3.
Can I order a second charging cable? - Yes, this has been added to the accessories section and is available for $10.
What happens if we don't reach our goal? - If the funding goal isn't reached, everyone will receive a full refund. The money is held by indiegogo until the goal is met, so refunds will go smoothly.
Can I downgrade my order? - You must contact indiegogo directly to do this. We have no access to the money raised until we reach our goal, so we cannot issue refunds at this time. Indiegogo can help you.
The Grasshopper is purely for enjoyment. It is not a medical or health device, and does not claim to be so.

What's a vaporizer?
A vaporizer is a device used to extract flavors and aromas from plants or herbs. Much like essential oils or incense, vaporizing allows you to enjoy nature in a new way.
A vaporizer gently heats plant matter without burning it, allowing aromas and flavors to escape.
Here's a short list of herbs that you can use in your Grasshopper!
