Prelaunch Adds Twist to Crowdfunding Model: Crowd Discounts

The first Prelaunch brand partner to take advantage of the CrowdDiscount program is TREWGrip, an innovative handheld rear-type keyboard and air mouse.

“TREWGrip is the perfect example of why the program exists. The keyboard has been well received and in demand since the introduction of the first prototype. The company wants to bring down the price of the device so it’s more accessible to the mobile masses. By working with Prelaunch and securing orders prior to production, the company has a better understanding of demand and can better control production costs, which benefits everyone involved. As more people participate in the campaign, the price for TREWGrip can drop by as much as $100,” explained Donald Brewer, co-founder and president of Prelaunch.

Outlier Technologies Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Introduce TREWGrip Mobile Rear-Type Technology

Outlier Technologies launched a Kickstarter campaign to further the development of TREWGrip, a patent-pending mobile QWERTY rear-type device that allows users to type with both hands while sitting, standing or walking. The full, standard QWERTY key layout is split and rotated so that the hands gripping TREWGrip can also touch-type wherever they are working. The first version of TREWGrip is a mobile dock, which connects wirelessly to virtually any Bluetooth-enabled mobile device or computer. TREWGrip also features an optional gyroscope that allows users to control on-screen mouse movement by simply tilting and turning the device.
