About the DorkPod Kits and Drawings

beDorky is starting off with a few basic kit options. More options will arrive regularly as we are heavily vested in this project. Discounts will be on the Kickstarter December 2016. If you want one now call Brian at (434) 242-9092 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . If the Kick starter yields our minus needs (just $3000) We will take a week and clean up all the Fusion 360 files to release as open source. We will export all assemblies in Solid Works format and Step files. Then we will create .pdf blueprint drawings. All of this will be viable on GitHub.

Where cost conscious is important we suggest you look at the value proposition of upcycling a used electric wheelchair as a drive system. We purchased several between $250 and $400 dollars. Our view is when someone moves on to the land of magic unicorns their objects serve little worldly purpose sitting in a garage. Using a chair as a drive system brings an uplifting second life to these devices. Here are listings in our area. The day I posted this link there was one for $100. You will also need some paint, we used decent quality hardware store spray cans.
