    wYerBox for storing and pulling electrical wire spools

    There are a lot of decent projects that have failed Kickstarter, and I can't help but think it's because of a lack of slick marketing efforts, pretty female models, and videos that went viral.

    This one is called "wYerBox", and is simply a purpose-built wire storage toolbox plus wire caddy dispensing method for electricians.






    This highlights the disparity between spooling as a great storage strategy, but a questionable strategy for dispensing materials, especially when, as the product details specifically highlight, the ends of the spool break into sharp plastic edges. This is especially applicable to electrical wire, which is highly vulnerable to damage. This is the problem that wYerBox is trying to solve:



    Failed on Kickstarter with $279 raised of $10,000 goal, but still available on the company website for $130.

    I think those collective failures ever more so is ignorance; whatever portion [apparent majority] investors have no idea what supports basic daily activities. "It isn't tech...", "This is important why...?", or "...so how would it benefit me?" And so uninformed or non-observant about what is around them.
    As if 'wireless' really means "wireless!".

    With 12,000 feet of wire to pull, and 16 feet overhead, I think I'll support the effort and purchase wYerBox, and add it to my potential rental inventory. Hopefully, there is one holding 4 spools.
