Rebuilding From The Ashes

This past Monday, there was a malfunction with our laser cutter while we were cutting out the last sheet of Shen key chains. The laser cutter caught on fire and is now out of commission. So today in class, three members of our team and a few other classmates met to discuss how we could raise the $6000 needed for a new one. We have decided to use Kickstarter, a website where people can pledge money in exchange for products, to generate enough funds.While we worked on fundraising, the remaining members of our group finalized our logo design and three more key chain designs. Over the weekend, we will continue to prototype our armrest design and will start fundraising for the new laser cutter.
