Article: Top 10 Most-funded Chicago Design & Tech Kickstarter Campaigns of 2013




In October, we went to Kickstarter to fund our latest and greatest product - the TruGlide Apex fine point electronic stylus.  With just a 2.3mm tip, the TruGlide Apex and your iPad will be your new pen and paper!  3,090 Kickstarter backers generously donated $183,014 to create the Apex.... that was 762% of our goal!

We have been hard at work sending out the first round of Apexes to our 3,000+ Kickstarter backers!

Extremely Cold Temperatures Causing Shutdowns in Chicagoland - Monday, Jan. 6

Image
The LYNKtec office will be closed today - Monday, January 6 due to extremely cold temperatures.  We are located in Chicagoland, where wind chills are expected to reach -50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Unfortunately, this means we will not be able to ship orders today.  Our shipping department will get your orders out to you first thing tomorrow, though.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

"Twenty-six states were under warnings or watches for severe wind chill as the result of a weather phenomenon known as a polar vortex — essentially an arctic cyclone that normally sits near the North Pole but has pushed unusually far south." - NBCnews.com article From Florida to "Chi-beria", No Escaping Grip of Record-breaking Polar Vortex

Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.  Please stay warm, everyone!
