PLAND – The real deal to play or work on the go. Anywhere, play real games or work solid with PLAND, the mouse pad for laptop.
About this project
Play, Work, reveal yourself anywhere and anytime, just like home with the PLAND mouse pad.
Please support our campaign and spread the word! Help us to succeed in this test on a large scale to turn these prototypes into perfectly suited products.
These prototypes have been crafted to be at the same level of quality than the final product will be.
The main idea about the PLAND mouse pad comes from the facts that the use of the laptop trackpad could be very difficult when you try to play fast or accurate video games or when you try to work on the go.
For this purpose, we design the PLAND mouse pad. A unique mouse pad made to play or work anywhere. Like at home.
If you have a seat and no space for a mouse, if you want a real deal in gaming or working. Use PLAND mouse pad. Even if you only use your laptop to play solitary or work with notepad, it will be far better to do with PLAND mouse pad.
From your bed to your sofa, from a pub to ISS, from a polar station to a submarine, now you can play or work like at home. A Game desire or an urge of work when you want, despite of the place with PLAND mouse pad.
Light, easily storable, comfortable, resistant, clever, simple…PLAND mouse pad.
The design of the PLAND mouse pad is a unique combination of experience and work. We change the materials, redraw the design and test it as many times as it need to create an almost perfect shape.
Moreover, we work on comfort and durability. Lots of tests and pre-design unit where created in the process and we spent hundreds hours of testing it, working and playing to be almost sure that our design is the best fitted to you.
Thickness selection was a hard choice, 4 mm for the gaming series, 3 mm for the working series. We try thicker and less tick but at the end, these heights are the best for flexibility and comfort.
Our adventure begins in the train when we find how hard it was to play and work with a classic track-pad. Then, we start our research for a perfect travel mouse pad made by existing companies. But we quickly find it doesn’t exist.
Quickly, an idea comes up to our minds. If it doesn’t exist, why can’t we create the mouse pad that we need. We compared many products to be sure that PLAND mouse pad provides a high quality comfort, an accurate pointing experience and a great durability. And most of all, a unique experience.
We start now our first Kickstarter campaign as a worldwide test bed to perfect our product and be able to finance the first production by reaching the second funding step.
We work hard to offer you something different but, even if we make as many tests as we can in many locations, we think that you can help us to make our product better. If the second funding step is reached, we hope to get as many feedback as possible to produce the best products in mid-2017.
We want to shape the final products with you. We will try to include the most asked featuresand follow when possible the most repeated comments and remarks.
About the funding goals, the first is the operating costs to keep the PLAND-LAC company alive for a year.
The second funding step is 20,000€. It’s the needed amount in order to produce the first batch of final PLAND mouse pad.
If we succeed, we will listen the bakers until January/February 2017 in order to start production some weeks after.
Don’t forget, a more complex packaging, double or more the production price, is useless and it’s bad for the Earth.
One thing, we are sure, we will have a XS size for Gaming and Working series, for the 13 to 14 inches laptop computer. We also think to add a white line around the edge…
Risks and challenges
The prototypes are ready to be send, there’s no risks for the backers.
We are confident that PLAND mouse pad has a place in the real world.
Only your help will allow us to exist, that the biggest challenge.
If we succeed in our 2 funding steps and really start the adventure, cloning is one of our biggest fear.
