by • March 27, 2016 • No Comments

  • Last week, we had the pleasure of being the initially to announce the commence of the Kickstarter campaign for OLO, the smartphone 3D printing device. After the campaign began, it hit $30K in only three minutes preceding reaching its $80K goal in a total of 30 minutes. I was reminded by one of our readers that this was not the most rapidly funding record in Kickstarter history, that was in fact achieved by the Pebble smartwatch. But, after we broke the story, the campaign was picked up by a wide variety of mainstream media, which include Newsweek, causing the OLO to pass the $1 million mark sometime on Saturday.

    OLO yet has a ways to go if it hopes to become the most-funded 3D printing campaign on Kickstarter, with the 3Doodler 2.0 ($1,552,256), Buccanneer ($1,438,765), 3Doodler ($2,344,134), Form 1 ($2,945,885), and the Micro ($3,401,361) yet having earned additional than OLO so far. The OLO, yet, is already at $1,277,380 with 29 days to go and new media sites picking up on the story on a regular basis. All it needs to do to become the most-funded 3D printing campaign is to earn roughly $3.5 million in the upcoming month. All it needs to do to beat two other highly funded 3D printing campaigns, the Buccaneer and the LIX pen, is to in fact donate a functioning product to customers.
