Ninja Blocks Kickstarter campaign exceeds target
With a goal of raising $115,000 for Ninja Block’s next generation device, the Ninja Sphere, through crowd-funder Kickstarter, the company had smashed their target and raised over $600,000 by the end of the campaign.
Ninja Blocks chief executive Daniel Friedman attributed the success to strong demand and aesthetic appeal.
“It was just a demonstration of people wanting this kind of product and looking quite sexy.…people see the benefit and are excited by it.”
Ninja Blocks are small, cloud-enabled computers that can sense their environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can alter their surroundings by controlling appliances like lights, heaters and air conditioners.
The elegant next generation Ninja Sphere offers gesture control, in-home location for items like mobile phones or pets and can connect to almost any device.
After successfully debuting, and receiving rave reviews and great exposure at the high profile international Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas recently, the company is gearing up for production of the Ninja Sphere.
Ninja Blocks is a client of ATP Innovations, Australia’s leading technology business incubator.
