G’DAY FROM AERIOS
We're Aerios. A small tech design start-up from Sydney Australia, and we'd like you to join us on our journey.A journey to rid your space of the cheap, plastic rubbish, and to fill it with nice pieces designed to make a statement, designed to look beautiful and to be functional alongside those gadgets you use daily and adore. We don’t want to clutter our homes and offices with cheap, and we’re betting you’re the same.

WE HATE CHEAP, PLASTICY, RUBBISH.
Take a look around your desk at work, or around your home. You try to surround yourself with nice things, things that say something about you. You want to show them off, and you want people to find them just as pleasing as you do... and that's the same for your gadgets. We buy gadgets that matter, that make a statement about you, that make you look at them and admire the millions (billions?) of dollars in R&D to make those things pretty..
Now look at the accessories those gadgets are sold with. Like we said;
Cheap. Plasticy. Rubbish.
INTRODUCING THE MODUUL LG G WATCH CHARGING DOCK
The Moduul is an accessory for an accessory.
Wait, what? An accessory for an accessory?
Yep, you know that little brick of plastic you got with your shiny New G Watch? How disappointing... the watch sits on this brick, flat on the table. Offers no real function while the watch is charging. It. Just. Sits There.
The Moduul uses the G Watch charger brick to turn something plastic, into something gorgeous, and a lot more functional.
The charging brick fits snugly inside the Moduul so you can be assured it won't move around, or come out when you remove your G Watch from the stand.
The Moduul is made with premium materials. The dock combines an anodised aluminium stand in either Silver or Black premium finish, and Walnut timber to compliment the black aluminium or Oak to compliment the silver.
We've also added a micro suction pad on the underside of the Moduul, so it doesn't move around as you use the watch while docked.
Check out our campaign video to see the Moduul and suction pad in action.
I WANT A MODUUL, LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN
We’ve completed extensive designing, prototyping and testing and have already funded a limited production run for our beta testers.
We only need $1,600AUD to tool up the larger machines. But instead of going to the bank, we’d prefer to give you a Moduul through IndieGoGo.
We’re paying for the materials in this first mass production run. Depending on the demand, these funds towards tooling will allow us to meet the demand (big or small) of retailers and consumers. Because we use the highest quality materials, and personally finish and inspect each Moduul in Sydney we need help from backers to fund the tools.
Check out our Perks below: you can pledge using the pledge buttons in this campaign.
Below is a rundown of the project timeline so far, and our projection for the next few months. We've added two deviations based on the IndieGoGo campaign. Basically, if we are successfully funded, the docks will be delivered a month earlier because we can start the manufacturing straight away (thanks to you!).
Render of Moduul Packaging.As we progress through the timeline, we'll post new updates to our backers to show images of the Moduul's status.
WHAT IF YOU DON'T REACH THE GOAL?
Don’t worry, we’ll beg, borrow and steal (well not steal) funds to get the production run happening and the Moduul into your hands.
Let’s be straight: Regardless of whether we reach our goal or not, You will get your Moduul before Christmas (probably sooner) – great Christmas present right?
We’ve already done mini production runs, prototyping, testing and have Moduuls being used by our testers around Sydney. We’re confident we will deliver.
Our main obstacle at the moment is shipping – namely trying
to keep the costs down from us to you. Because we're based in Sydney Australia,
we're a little disconnected from the rest of the world so shipping is generally
higher to get items in your hands.
We’re working closely with our logistics partners (FedEx, Toll, AusPost and FastWay) to get these costs down as much as possible. As these costs come down, so will the international shipping method (AUD$22 for outside of Australia) we’ve put on the pledges. If the cost comes down after you’ve already pledged and paid a higher amount, don’t worry we’ll refund you the difference once the campaign is over.
Even if you’re not going to support us on this campaign, thank you for getting this far! We know you want to turn your clutter of plastic into beautiful accessories, and don’t worry, we have other really nice pieces coming soon. (backers will receive a few sneak peaks of what's coming in the update section)
For now, please share this campaign with as many people as you can to help spread the word, follow Aerios on Twitter for updates, sign up to our newsletter through our website for early tips on new Aerios projects.
