The WINGStand

Press Kit

Invented by Stanford student Daniel Haarburger, the WINGStand demonstrates how modern technology is reinventing the design process. Drafted in a dorm room, prototyped using 3D printers, then launched using a crowd funding platform called Kickstarter, the WINGStand was realized in less than five months. Better still, it was the product of a whole community of technologists. In less than 7 weeks, over 2,000 people came together to make the product a reality. Design, simplicity, and community are baked into our DNA.
