For decades, the weight-loss industry has been in continuous search of finding a healthy and effective way to establish long-term results. The community targeted often finds a difficult time to commit to a healthy, balanced diet with an exercise routine. Sometimes, these individuals feel pressured into getting results, without finding a stable way to maintain these results. As product development experts within our industry, we love that our work can significantly impact multiple industries. Our friend and client, Adam Paulin had come up with an innovative idea that revolutionized the weight loss industry. Thin-Ice is a weight loss clothing line that allows people to shed weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle by simply wearing their product! Paulin’s project is a great reflection of MAKO’s ability to impact not only our industry but almost every industry in the world. With our team of experts, MAKO has excelled at identifying good opportunities for clients, and guiding them to success! We are passionate to design, polish and help bring innovative ideas to reality for individuals that share our hunger for success.
Thin Ice: From Prototype to Production
About a month ago, Adam Paulin launched his Indiegogo campaign hoping to raise $15 000 in funding. With his campaign recently ending, our friends at Thin Ice have raised a whopping 593,895 USD in funding and are ready to go from prototype to production! With such immense success, the Thin Ice Weight Loss Clothing Line is ready to move from prototype to production and well on its way to tremendous success! As a fitness trainer and a neuroscience and psychology major, Paulin has earned his results through hard work and passion for what he believes in.
With the help of the Design and Engineering Team at MAKO, Paulin’s product is uniquely designed with Peltier chips embedded into the material. These Peltier chips trick your body into thinking it’s in a cool environment, allowing it to generate heat to effectively speed the metabolic system. This causes the body to burn excess fat by trying to maintain equilibrium. These Peltier chips are specifically dispersed to target metabolic responses, so that your body does not feel cold or experience shivers.
Projects like the Thin Ice are a great inspiration for us at MAKO. Being able to individually and collectively, as a team, bring such tremendous changes to a single industry is extremely rewarding. While the product development stages for Thin Ice are not complete, being able to go from prototype to production is extremely exciting! Congratulations Adam, we can’t wait to see Thin Ice in the market!
