The Tinker Gearcoin project funded, thank you everyone!
Of course, we still have some time to go and room to grow, so we’re doing something kinda crazy. We want to design a 12th coin, but we’re crowdsourcing the design. Sort of. It’s like Magic the Gathering, when they do their “You Design The Card”; we’re going to ask a series of polls and let the community decide on what we do with the design of the coin. We’re starting with this (36mm diameter, image not to scale):
…which will be a “driver” coin. That smaller gear’s round center will be a big hole, right through the coin, so you can put a pencil or finger in it as a handle to crank the coin around. Or it can be a pendant, earring or something else. It’s weird, it’s wacky, and I really don’t know where it will wind up.
So if you have a moment and are interested, please check out the campaign over here, spread the word, and join us for the crazy ride ahead!
