Boyle Fredrickson Attorney Keith Baxter Launches Kickstarter Campaign
Boyle Fredrickson shareholder Keith Baxter recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the unveiling of The Kyub: A Three-dimensional feather touch MIDI Keyboard. The Maker-Friendly musical interface (MIDI) kit uses Open Source Software and is easily assembled at home by just about anyone.
Baxter, a patent-holding attorney, has a degree in electrical engineering from Yale University and in 2010 was featured in Popular Science.
“I think good patent attorneys are curious about how things work and are captivated by the design process,” Baxter says. “I enjoy applying my electrical engineering knowledge to personal projects, but had not focused on inventing a marketable product since becoming an attorney. This Kickstarter campaign is an opportunity to experience what my clients feel as they bring new products to market.”
The Kickstarter campaign is a partnership between Baxter; Petyr Stretz, a hacker and electronic music expert; and Peggy Brown, an industrial designer. The goal of the project was to create a design that was functional, innovative and beautiful. The team worked together for four months to perfect this vision and launch The Kyub in an easy to use kit form.
