Crowdsourcing Mornings: ZipString

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

You may have heard the saying: “You can’t push a string” It generally means that something is impossible, insurmountable, or hopeless. Because, who could push a string, RIGHT? Well, now when someone tells you, “You can’t push a string.” Pull out your ZipString, and do the impossible anyway.

To use it:

  • Load a string
  • Point it in the direction you want it to go
  • Press the button
  • And let ‘er Zip!

When you are done using it, just neatly wrap the string around the body.  With its compact design, ZipString can fit in your pocket to go with you anywhere.

ZipString is rechargeable, so no fiddling with battery enclosures, or dead batteries. Charge it up, and you are ready to Zip.

Since ZipString emulates your movement, there are endless possibilities.  And endless possibilities = endless fun.  ZipString will come with different-sized strings.  So out of the box, you will be amazed at what you can immediately do with a short string.  As your skill improves, you will be able to use longer strings. We cannot wait to see what you will do with ZipString.  ZipString is Amazing!

The string gently glides and follows the contours of objects it interacts with.  As it does so, it emulates shapes and patterns that are mesmerizing.  With its gentle flow, that you can even deflect the stream with your hand and barely feel it.

As of September 14th, this project has raised $17,000 of their $75,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise the $75,000 or it will not be funded.  For a pledge of $10, you will get a sticker and keychain.  For a pledge of $25, you will get one ZipString.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
