I have created the Bin-Dex system to better organize standard Akro-Bin parts cabinets.

Bin-Dex is an organizing accessory to index small parts. Connect your small
parts bins into larger trays and create labels from an Open-Source
Library.

We are currently gauging interest at https://www.facebook.com/getbindex to understand whether we should pursue a Kickstarter campaign. Any insights, support and/or comments are greatly appreciated.

Just wondering... Haven't these things already been made? What's special/different about these?

Thank you for the reply. Yes, there are a number of different label bars available for various types of storage units. However, the Bin-Dex is the only one that connects two or more bins; grouping the smaller drawers into larger, more easily accessible drawers. In addition, the open-source label templates provide a more intuitive means of organizing via part groupings, colors and icons.

To clarify, this product does not include the case. It is a label accessory that adapts to existing Akro-Mils parts cabinets.

If you have seen a product like this we would certainly be interested in receiving more info. So far our research and patent search has not indicated that this has been done before.

Hi everyone!

Maybe you might find interesting AirDog. It is the world's first auto-follow drone for GoPro camera that follows and films you autonomously, so you don’t need to rely on filmmaking crew to get breathtaking views. Forget about remote control operation – Airdog is a unique solution for action sports or anything else you wish to film without actually holding your GoPro.

Have a look at our Kickstarter page: http://bit.ly/KickstartAirDog

It would be awesome if you could support it or spread the word on your websites. Let’s make a revolution in drone-made photos and videos together!

We'll be thrilled to hear from you! If you want to know more, don't hesitate to ask us anything - dita@airdog.com

Best regards,
Dita Team Airdog
