According to his Kickstarter bio, Taylor Hide wants to help folks get better sleep.
The result of his work is the LUMI Mask, “The Sleep Mask that Wakes You Up.” Hide developed the it as a way to provide folks with the benefits of sleep masks and sunrise clocks using only one product.
He’s attempting to use the popular crowdsourcing site Kickstarter to raise the funds necessary to continue developing his idea and to start producing them. He’s already raised $2,946 from 53 backers with 27 days to go.
This would not be the first successful Kickstarter project in Birmingham, AL. The most visible one so far in our digital world was the one undertaken by the Desert Island Supply Company earlier this year.
