Coming Soon From The Future! Clifton Roozeboom Explains How He Kickstarted His Amazing PocketLab

In this episode we’re joined by Clifton Roozeboom who shares the story behind his amazing PocketLab – “a science lab in your pocket”. PocketLab has been featured by the likes of The New York Times, TechCrunch, Buzzfeed, Popular Science and now, here on KickStars, we have an in-depth interview with the inventor behind it.

Clifton has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and his specialty is the fascinating world of sensors – the devices that measure the world around us. We talk about his successful campaign – The PocketLab – a remarkable device that makes all kinds of experiments easy by gathering data about the real world and visualizing it in real time.

Clifton’s goal on Kickstarter was to raise $25,000 to bring PocketLab to life. By the end of his campaign 916 backers took the total way beyond his goal to more than $114,000! Clifton tells us exactly how his Kickstarter campaign proved to be so successful.
