How Do You Find Out if People Like Your Invention?
Troy, MI -(Ammoland.com)- We have an invention. It is a bulletproof baseball cap and we are launching it with Kickstarter, a crowd funding platform.
If people like it, they will preorder it and we will make it. If no one likes it, we won't make it. It's a bit dramatic and the entire drama will play out over the next 39 days.
The BulletSafe Bulletproof Baseball Cap uses materials that are normally used to stop rifle rounds, to create a compact panel that will stop handgun fire in the front of a baseball cap. The result is a discreet, friendly form of frontal protection that could help Police and Security professionals stay safe and keep the peace.
- Do People want it? We don't know.
- Is it worth the asking price of $129 ($99 if preordered on Kickstarter)? We don't know.
- Will people believe it will work? We don't know.
Will it work? Yes. We successfully tested a prototype with the same size, thickness, and materials. It worked very well.
Are we going to find out? Yes. The Kickstarter process will answer all of the unknowns. People get to vote with their wallets and if they like the product, they will buy it. Our campaign page explains the product and people can pre-order the caps at a discount. If the campaign is well liked, it will reach its financial goal and we will put the BulletSafe Bulletproof Baseball Cap into production. If the campaign does not reach its goal, no one's credit card will be charged.
Follow the Kickstarter project here to see how it is going. The project launched a little less than 24 hours ago and will continue to take pre-orders until the Tuesday after SHOT Show.
We will have some prototypes in our booth (#616) at SHOT Show for you to try on.
Getting Ready for SHOT Show – See Us At Booth 616.
Not only will we have the bulletproof baseball cap at SHOT Show, but we will also be introducing four other new products. This might make our booth a must-see. We are located downstairs in Booth #616 near Columbia River Knives.
We will also be attending the Army Navy Military Expo, The National Prepper's Expo, and The Worldwide Buyers Show and hope to see you during the winter months.
