Beta Version Pre-Order Page 

Congratulations on finding the "Thing-O" beta, preorder page.

A very unique kind of offer, as I'm yet to reveal the details of what a "Thing-O" is.

Because this is not a typical product order, please be sure to read through this entire page before placing an order.


This special preorder is for MBI tribesfolk who would like to have something new, sooner rather than later and offer feedback before I make a first production version. 

Based on your valuable feedback, I hope to offer these to the general public via a crowdfunding campaign so please read these guidelines for purchase carefully and note that by placing an order, you agree to the following:

Guidelines for Purchase

  1. No public posting of photos before February 29 2016
  2. No public posting of information about (or in regards to) this product before February 29 2016
  3. A private, non-publicly viewable, online discussion forum (which will require registration) will be made available for optional feedback and related discussion.

I've purposely called the above conditions "Guidelines" because this is not a legally binding agreement, rather a good citizen clause. My sincere hope is that you will follow the guidelines to maximise the chance of success by keeping things private until I'm ready to publicly launch them. 

What is Included:
     3x Thing-O beta versions (each is slightly different).

  • All titanium casing
  • Emits light
  • Contains a magnet


When will this ship:
Expected shipping date is during the last week of December, 2015.
I'll do my best to ship these as quickly as possible but as I will be doing most of the assembly personally, and it's a busy time of year to find helpers, it may take me 1-2 weeks to assemble and ship the entire batch. 

Thing-O beta, is guaranteed to function correctly within the scope of the included description for 12months. 

You may request an unconditional, instant refund ANY time before your package ships, for any reason at all 

eg. if the timeline changes
eg. some circumstance changes at your end, etc.

Shipping Options:
In trying to keep costs low, and as things are not heavy, I'm offering a default "Airmail" shipping option for $4.50 but please note this has NO tracking. Registered Airmail ($7) and EMS ($13.50) are also included as options.  You will see the words (FOR THING-O PRE ORDER) listed in the shipping method during checkout.
