MELBOURNE, Australia, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbitkey, a company that thrives on both design and innovation, return to their roots on Kickstarter and launched their second campaign for the new and improved Orbitkey 2.0. With a successful first campaign back in 2013 with over US$150K raised, loyal backers and Orbitkey users were filled with excitement and anticipation for the introduction of version 2.0. Orbitkey was off to a phenomenal start, hitting their US$20K goal within 2 hours of the launch and raising US$100K within two days.
With this much funding so early in the 60-day campaign, one can only speculate whether or not this project will end up being one of the most funded Australian projects.
Version 2.0 remains faithful to the overall structure of Orbitkey, featuring the distinguished, award-winning locking mechanism made from stainless steel for increased durability and a concave surface improving ergonomics for easy handling.
Along with the redesign, Orbitkey introduced a canvas band that embodies streetwear fashion, a cushioned leather band for a more sleek and professional look, and a range of active elastomer bands that retain their sporty heritage from version 1.0, but feature a fresh, new design.
Additional Features of the Orbitkey 2.0:
- Holds up to 7 keys or tools, including a faster USB (3.0)
- Additional multi-tool functions as a bottle opener, flat-head screw driver, filer, can opener, wrench-tool and box cutter
- Features a sculpted D-ring with a smoother surface, preserving Orbitkey's leather bands
- Eliminates noise of rattling keys
- Design envelop keys to protect wallets, smartphones and other items from scratches
Pricing starts at $17 for the Active Elastomer Orbitkey, $21 for the Canvas Orbitkey, $25 for the Leather Orbitkey and essential tools start at $5. For more information about Orbitkey or to view their campaign, visit www.orbitkey.com/ks
