VicamPlus Kickstarter Campaign a Success
VicamPlus's first product was released through Kickstarter, and raised the $10,000 it needed to complete the iPhone 5 camera case in the first 23 days of the campaign. The newly founded company will continue taking pledges through its Kickstarter page over the next 3 weeks.
PR9.NET February 21, 2013 - Smartphone accessories company VicamPlus, www.VicamPlus.com, successfully funded its first product release through popular crowdfunding website, www.Kickstarter.com. The VicamPlus iPhone 5 Camera Case is a revolutionary invention for those who enjoy recording extreme sports, particularly those who use their iPhone 5 phones for video recording.
The case transforms any iPhone 5 into a professional, waterproof camera with 3 lenses. For people who currently have a GoPro camera, the case is compatible with all GoPro accessories. The device allows for video recording with an iPhone 5 while keeping the phone protected with a durable, waterproof case. And for those who don't already have GoPro accessories, the company is also offering mounts for car windows, bikes, and motorcycles.
"I just realized that while I loved my GoPro camera, the screen was just too small for the amount of editing that I wanted to do," said Lou Gu, co-founder of VicamPlus. "I realized that I could record great video with my iPhone and I just needed to find a way to cover the phone while recording. I was disappointed by the options that were on the market, and that led to the creation of VicamPlus."
The company is currently offering the case for $48 in an effort to raise the $10,000 investment that the company needs to be able to bring the case to market. Early investors are getting an amazing value through Kickstarter, as the cases will retail for $99 in the future. For the next 20 days, people will be able to pledge $48 for the purchase of a case through Kickstarter. As of today, the company has nearly 200 supporters and has raised almost $11,000, reaching the company's stated goal with over 20 days remaining in its campaign.
"We are extremely humbled by the amazing customer support that we have received throughout this Kickstarter campaign. And the press has been just amazing, as we have received numerous positive reviews," said Brent Duke, co-founder of VicamPlus. "We are extremely excited to have received the funding needed and can't wait to bring this product to the market. We are convinced that people are absolutely going to love this device."
