Neil and I spent the last week of September in China to finalise contracts with the factory and to kick off tooling. We're happy to report that tooling is now under way and everything is on track. It was great to see the factory in full operation, with juicers and blenders coming off two of their assembly lines, and pl...
Over the last few weeks we've heard some pretty crazy stories about parents, toddlers and toilet brushes. A large percentage of the 850 people who have supported our Kickstarter campaign are parents.
Loogun was featured on the very popular Madmoizelle.com blog today, highlighting how the toilet brush hasn't been improved in our lifetime.
The Loogun was featured on Glamour.com today in an article written by Kim Fusaro. "The toilet brush is easily the most disgusting thing in your home.
The Loogun was featured on Slate.com today. It's always awesome to get featured on a website we've often visited ourselves. "The plastic toilet brush is a necessary evil that most of us begrudgingly purchase and prefer not to think about.
The Loogun was featured on CoolThings.com today. "It doesn’t matter if you have an ordinary toilet or one of those high-tech Kohler bowls, you’ll still need to clean the toilet and it’s still a crappy affair. The Loogun wants to make it just a little less so."
Loogun was featured on GeekMag today, with a couple of extracts as below: "It shoots an intense stream of water into the toilet bowl cleaning off any and all hangabouts both above and below the waterline without actually touching the surface of the crapper."
Loogun featured on Want.nl today. "De WC-borstel is één van de huishoudelijke producten die al decennia lang onveranderd meegaat. Hoewel het product is bedoeld voor een schoon WC, is de borstel zelf én in het gebruik verre van hygiënisch. Tijd voor een vernieuwing in ‘t toilet, volgens de creators van Loogun."
The Loogun was featured on Geek.com today. "Toilet brushes are gross. Sure you might have run around with them lofted high overhead hollering “I have the power of Grayskull” as a kid, but adults know what they’re really used for.
The Loogun was featured on TrustedReviews.com today. "What if there was a better way to clean your toilet than the humble bog brush? The Loogun is a cleaner, more hygienic and downright more aesthetically pleasing alternative, and it's seeking funding on Kickstarter now."
Loogun featured in the popular DigitalTrends.com blog. "Nobody actually enjoys cleaning the toilet, right? The brush gets filthy and smelly, and you leave yourself vulnerable to splashing. All in all, it's pretty unhygienic."
The Loogun was featured on the super popular Engadget blog today, in an article written by Steve Dent. "Not all of us can afford $6,000 for a self-cleaning toilet, so scrubbing one usually revolves around a yucky toilet brush. However, a product coming to Kickstarter may make the chore marginally more pleasant. Called...
Our official Kickstarter launch date was planned for this Saturday, however, we received some early press coverage today from Edgadget, DigitalTrends and Goexplore, and decided to launch the campaign immediately.
After nearly 2 years in design and engineering, we are excited to show you the Loogun. Our goal is really quite simple: replace every toilet brush on planet earth with a Loogun.
We haven't been able to show off the Loogun publicly for what seems like forever as we were in the process of preparing our patent applications. These have all been filed now and we have utility and design patent applications submitted in 29 countries.
