Vovation is a crowdfunding platform for inventors and innovators. The goal is to foster an environment to support inventors develop and launch new products that have the potential to significantly impact their respective industries. The platform focuses on manufactured goods, which includes consumer electronics, accessories, housewares, sporting goods, hardware, apparel, and health & beauty products. Vovation is based in Austin, TX and hopes to not only have an impact locally, but also nationwide.
Vovation, Origin of Cool, and BendyBuds collaborated to make the project a reality on the new crowdfunding platform for inventors. BendyBuds, designed by Conley Giles, are innovative headphones that have the flexibility to wrap around sunglasses or bend them to custom fit around their ears. According to Conley Giles, BendyBuds “[incorporate] a soft flexible wire into the earbuds speaker wire that would maintain the shape it was bent, allow it to be custom fit.” This technology keeps earphones in and prevent wires from getting in the way. It serves as a great accessory for athletes – runners, skiers, and sailers – who tend to use both sunglasses and earbuds at once.
Funds raised on Vovation will be used to move the company into production. BendyBuds will intially be produced in black. If the campaign gets enough support and presales, BendyBuds will be produced in additional colors determined by the Vovation crowd. Less than two weeks remain on the campaign.
