Hong-Kong-based Design firm Lofree came out of nowhere last year, quickly racking up three six-figure crowdfunding successes: $744,199 for their Dot Keyboard, $183,618 for their Four Seasons Keyboard and $185,499 for their Poison Speaker. In this age of hard-looking glass rectangles, the company’s tactile, geometric, soft-radii-sporting retro-styled objects seem to have struck a chord with consumers.
Their new crowdfunding campaign is for the Lofree Digit, a “Retro Mechanical Calculator:”
Though there’s still 29 days left in the campaign, the Digit has already reached critical mass, garnering $17,764 in pledges on a $1,273 goal. Buy-in starts at $29, and the device is expected to retail for $49 when it comes out later this year.
