Japan’s wearable smart-toy Moff launches Kickstarter campaign, already near goal


Yesterday we mentioned Japan-based OpenPool, an interactive billiards kit that’s currently raising funds on Kickstarter, coinciding with their exhibition at SXSW. There are a number of Japanese companies pushing their wares at the Austin conference, and another one is smart-toy maker Moff, who we spoke with earlier in the month.

Like OpenPool, Moff has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its wearable wristband toy at SXSW, and as I write this, they’re almost at their fundraising goal, with more than $15,000 of their $20,000 goal raised.

As part of their Kickstarter materials, Moff has laid out a development roadmap (see below) detailing plans to mass produce and ship their wristband this summer.

Kickstarter backers who pitch in financially can get Moff wristbands as rewards, which certainly makes it worthwhile to support the project.
