Unique perk added to the campaign
We just added a new perk! This is a great way to support the campaign and to get something really special! You can order the photo-book of the complete design history of the Alinker.
The Alinker went through 7 conceptual prototypes and a 'few' more pre-production versions. The book shows early sketches, photos of all stages, and describes what motivated the next step or change. It talks about the process and illustrates details of the Alinker most people will not expect. The introduction talks about the user focused design process and how that is radically different to most other mobility vehicles. It gives insight in the design philosophy that motivated the Alinker. Barbara Alink will have signed the book herself when you receive it.
Barbara has worked in architecture, reconstruction and specialty woodwork in a variety of places like Afghanistan, Darfur, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Kenya, etc and her rich experience will 'color' this design history book, highlighting the importance of design for the user and building a more inclusive community.
Here are a few examples of the early process... just a taste...
(the best photos will only be in the book).
So far $1550 is contributed towards the first Alinker to be donated! It is close!
Who contributes the last $450 and gets an hour on skype with the inventor? When you do, the first $2000 is complete and we will draw the name of the winner! There is a pool of names, people nominated by you, all people who would love the Alinker, but needed your contributions to make that dream come true!
You make the contribution... we draw the name of the person who will receive his/her Alinker!
