SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The latest innovation in home storage has arrived with the introduction of SkyPod on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Designed by Idea Potent, a Silicon Valley high-tech company, Skypod tackles vertical storage for small living spaces.

The cylindrical cabinet, which can be mounted above counters and other areas, has enclosed drop-down shelving that can be lowered with a push on the base of the unit to release. Air pressure from inside provides a smooth and gradual descent, the company says.

“Seeing the mess of toiletries scattered around the bathroom sink, cluttered and unhygienic at the same time, made me decide that there has to be a better way,” said Boban Jose, co-founder of Idea Potent. “Installing a traditional cabinet is not easy, it makes already congested places even worse and traditional cabinet doors are obtrusive. SkyPod addresses all of these deficiencies and the result is a revolutionary storage solution.”

The company is looking to raise $30,000 on Kickstarter. The campaign runs till April 11.

Skypod was created by Jose and Kiran Bhogadi through the tech firm Idea Potent.
