Android Etch: an Indiegogo project using lasers to engrave Google’s bugdroid logo on glasses

Android Etch

Nearly two years ago,  took to Google+ to display the fruits of his labor, pint glasses etched with Google’s bugdroid logo. As expected, Android fans fell in love with his creation and wanted to know where and how they could get them. The time has finally come, thanks to Indiegogo, Android Etch was born.

Android Etch is looking to raise $12,745 to purchase a state of the art laser engraving machine from Epilog Laser Company. The Zing 24 model sports a rotary attachment, a necessary component for etching on curved surfaces, such as pint glasses, is built-to-last, and is made in the USA.

Backers of this campaign have options ranging from $10 – for a single etched pint glass, to $75 – where backers will receive four etched pint glasses, a commemorative cup with the Android KitKat logo, and a custom cup etched with your own design of choice. For a full list of donor perks, you’ll want to check out the official Android Etch campaign description.

    I can already etch glass at home. You can buy etching cream at hobby stores and have it done in time for Halloween.

      That’s what I originally did, but, like I said, with mass orders, there’s lots of room for error, so I want to try and find a way to streamline and perfect the process.
