A couple months ago we launched the Studio Neat Mentorship Program, and it’s been a blast so far. We’ve gotten to chat (and hopefully help) tons of different folks at varying stages in the product development cycle. One such person, Anna Jay, was quite far along when she came to us, and her project launched on Kickstarter today. The first mentee to launch something new!

The project is called DriveSlide. It is an apparatus for affixing an external hard drive to the back of your laptop lid, so it’s easy to move around without a hard drive flopping everywhere.

The product itself is clever, simple, and thoughtfully designed. The project is giving me warm fuzzy feelings thinking back to when we launched the Glif 10 years ago. It’s a simple piece of plastic with no moving parts that solves a common problem, and the two person team (Anna is working with her brother Eli) need the funding to pay for injection molding. They both work other jobs and this is their first physical product. Sound familiar?

If DriveSlide sounds like something that would be useful to you, do consider backing. Let’s blow past the funding goal.
