• Crowdfunding goal is US$6,500
• On track to be successful by August 10, 2023, deadline
Javier Rivera, known for his retrobriting sessions at KansasFest and for his YouTube channel Adventures in Retrocomputing, has launched a Kickstarter to complement MacEffects’ transparent floppy drive case.
MacEffects’ 5.25″ case, which was also originally funded on Kickstarter, sells for US$39 but does not replace the opaque front of the original Apple drive, as seen in this photo.
Javier’s Kickstarter aims to complete the transparency of the case by replacing the front face.
The transparent plate can be preordered for US$65 for one (plus $18 shipping within the USA), $110 for two (plus $20 S&H), or $160 for three (plus $26 S&H). Shipping to select other countries is available for $49. Delivery is expected in November 2023.
At the time of this writing, the campaign has achieved 43% of its $6,500 crowdfunding goal (including a contribution by this author). Crowdfunding tool Kicktraq predicts that the goal will be met by the August 10, 2023, deadline.
