This is a great design. Really would make cocktails easy to make.

I'm not going to lie, the step-by-step instructions ruins the "cool factor" for me. When you're making drinks for friends, you want to look like you know what you're doing (not that I do). I'll probably stick to a more subtle guide and plastic shaker but others may dig this.

@rrhoover thanks for the feedback! I get what you mean. We'll work to be as "fluid" as possible during the steps of the recipe. While you may not look like you totally know what you're doing, I think it doesn't take away the fun and ease you can have making drinks with our product.

@rrhoover I agree Ryan. I've been following the story of B4rm4n for a while, since Charlotte is a regular on the Kickstarter Best Practices Group. They've followed all the right steps for Kickstarter success, and I feel like this is a product which may have mass consumer appeal... but I'm not a fan, for these reasons: 1) I like mixing cocktails. To my friends, I'm 'the cocktail guy'. I would never use something like this, and in general I feel the trend in home made cocktails is moving towards artisinal/craft cocktails and away from drinking gadgetry. The mason shaker, The Porthole, whiskey elements.. there are some great 'craft' cocktail tools coming out of Kickstarter that actually give you that kind of wow factor you want. 2) I don't ever think this will be more than a gimmicky gadget. In my experience, you can make 10,000 different cocktails but most people tend to stick the 3-4 they know and like best. You only have to make a mojito 2-3 times before you know it's bacardi, lime, sugar and mint, and at that point the product gets left on the shelf. Also worth noting is that Ozz just finished Kickstarter yesterday (https://www.kickstarter.com/proj...) - roughly the same value proposition but they only raised 12% of their goal (18k/150k euros)... though I think the guys at B4rm4n are a bit more strategic in their campaign. Criticism aside, best of luck Raphael & Charlotte.

Any connection to the existing (successful) Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/proj...? If it's early enough in the process, I'd change name if-not.

@dgould no connection. We've learned about that project late in the process of launching our product. It's a bit tough for us to change all our branding now.
