Funding period Nov 4, 2013 - Dec 9, 2013 (35 days) Project by Wallum Ltd. Vienna, Austria Contact me Hey guys! I am Max, 23 years old, studying and living in Vienna. As a student you are bound to attend some lectures, which do not necessarily grab your attention. Quite frankly, students need something else to do. This is how I stumbled upon Kickstarter and the truly amazing ideas people have to offer on it. It did not take many lectures until I thought: “Why not start a project myself?” HOW EVERYTHING STARTED? One day, not too long ago, I noticed the sheer size and weight of my wallet. I have also talked to friends who told me that they have the same thoughts. Everyone wanted something new, simple and practical. My dad is an engineer and therefore I was working in his metal factory from a young age. One day at work I found an old credit card holder lying around. This simple item immediately created ideas in my head. After jotting some of them down I then applied my skills in working with metals to actually plan a first prototype. Through the resources at my disposal, it was easy for me to produce the Wallum to the highest standards of quality while keeping the price low. WHAT IS WALLUM? The origin of the name is quite simple: WAL stands for wallet and LUM for aluminium First created · 0 backed Maximilian Müller 539 friends Website: wallum.eu See full bio Pledge £16 or more 100 backers All gone!

It consists of 2 aluminium plates held together tightly by 4 O-rings. As a result of this mechanism you can fit up to 15 cards of your choice into Wallum. In the video you can see how easy it is to use. Early Bird: Choose a WALLUM in any color with a special design (see pictures). Black or translucent rubber strap and o-rings are included. Thanks to the first backer! Estimated delivery: Dec 2013 Add £4 to ship outside the UK Pledge £20 or more 23 backers Choose a WALLUM in any color with a contour (without a special design). Black or translucent rubber strap and o-rings are included. Front Pocket Wallet: Estimated delivery: Dec 2013 Add £4 to ship outside the UK The initial reason was to create a wallet which does not bulge your pocket due to its size. It also fits easily into the inside pocket of a suit jacket. Having your wallet in the front pocket does make it much harder for a pickpocket to reach it, giving it a safety aspect. Another reason was to reduce the size of a wallet for health reasons, eliminating the problems of back pain if you're sitting on your bulky wallet. Pledge £22 or more 39 backers Choose a WALLUM in any color with a special design (see pictures). Black or translucent rubber strap and o-rings are included. NFC/RFID Protection: Estimated delivery: Dec 2013 Add £4 to ship outside the UK NFC is the technology enabling people to pay by touching the card reader with the debit or credit card. It was invented to make people’s life easier, but it leaves people with a potential security problem. Thieves could easily steal your data by touching your wallet with a special device. This NFC signal does not go through Wallum’s aluminium plates, leaving your data securely where it belongs. HOW IS WALLUM MANUFACTURED? Wallum is manufactured in Austria and Germany. The first step is laser cutting the form out of aluminium plates. After that CNC machines mill the details into each one of the wallets, e.g. the engraved designs, notches, etc. Thirdly the parts get sand blasted to leave it with a matt look. The last step is anodising in different colours and assembling the parts. Here are the different combinations you can choose: Choose from different engravings as well as different colours. Contour Design Color Orange Square Design Dimples Design

Star Design X-Square Design Colours you can choose: Silver Black Blue Red Orange Purple Gold Designs you can choose: Contour Design Square Design Dimples Design Star Design X-Square Design The last step: choose between black or white rubber band and o-rings HERE IS HOW WE WILL KNOW WHAT COMBINATION OF COLOUR AND DESIGN YOU HAVE CHOSEN: Once the project has been funded you will receive an email enquiring about your order details. We make a note of your choice of colour and engravings. When the project is funded we can use the money to buy more tools for the machines, all the raw materials like the aluminium, rubber bands, o-rings, material for sandblasting and anodization. When we got all these items we can start with the production of all your orders! Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter Wallum is the result of numerous prototypes. Each and every prototype I produced, demonstrated possible problems that might come up, like delays in the different production processes. All the findings from prototyping have not only helped me to understand possible risks and minimising them, but also to manage these risks effectively so production will not be delayed. The big challenge for me was to prepare everything for this project whilst studying for my BSc at Vienna University of Technology. With much effort I accomplished all the preparatory steps within a relatively short period.
