Our indiegogo campaign just ended.
Thanks your help and efforts, the pocket-onsen was shared on facebook 419 times and retweeted 44 times. It was featured on the Gadget flow, Rocketnews and several local newspapers.
The financial result was a collection of 2,472 US$ (about 8% of the target 30,000 US$)
Anyway, I am developing the product and will deliver the kits around dec. 15.
(If somebody is interested in a “pocket-onsen” as an original Christmas present, it is available for purchase in the shop section of this site.)
What has been really amazing about this campaign is the amount of insight, passionate advice that you gave me. Starting with the naming, the content of the kit, the graphics, the packaging! The pocket-onsen was really “crowd nurtured” and this has been a mind sizzling experience. I am really grateful for it.

I am now in contact with some hotels and hotel chains who are interested in selling it in the spa gift shop or offering it as a novelty in their higher rank rooms. There are several ryokan style hotels and japanese themed hot springs around the world and if you have some connection I would appreciate if you can spread the word about the pocket-onsen.
I am looking forward to the developments of the relation we are building together.
I am always available for chatting about new ideas and projects, please contact me by email at email@example.com
All the Best//
