New kindle fire wood case with a magnetic twist that allows you to easily mount your kindle fire on the wall like a picture frame.
The Kindle Fire is a very useful tablet you can surf the internet read books and listen to music and a bunch of other cool things. But it can be better way better.
The kindle fire is mate black and although it is useful it doesn't look cool and I would be embarrassed to use it out in public.
The high end wood case makes the kindle fire look like its worth 10 times as much and you can pick out of 5 awesome woods. And if you want further customization you can have the case laser etched to fit your style.
I have had with the kindle fire is that the Power button sticks out and I have to read my eBooks with the kindle upside down so the power button doesn't get hit.
Fix 2: with the high end wood case I have made the power button out of aircraft aluminum and it sits flush with the bottom of the case so it is not hit on accident.
I call this problem sleepy finger page turner. When holding the kindle fire every once in a while if I adjust my thumb a little the page will turn.
Fix 3: The wood Case has a nice little lip that makes it easier to hold onto the Kindle fire and totally eliminates the sleepy finger page turner.
I call this no home for my Kindle. In my apartment the counter space is prime real estate and I didn't want my kindle sitting taking up space and possibly getting damaged from spilled water or any other danger.
Fix 4: so I created a mount that would get the case of the counter and up on a wall or any other place I wanted which created another problem.
I didn't want the mount to make the case look bad and I didn't want the wall to look bad when the kindle was not there.
Fix 5: so I decided to use the magic of magnets 4 magnets in the case and 4 in the mount so they attach to each other and yet don't make the case look bad. I tested magnets till I found magnets that would hold strong enough that the case couldn't be knocked off on accident but not so strong that it wasn't easy to remove.
Months after I started I now have a product that I am proud of. only problems I have now are.
Problem 6: The magnets are very expensive (around $2.00 per magnet and I use 8.) and to get the most out of my case more than one mount is needed. (I currently use 2 mounts one in my office so I can listen to Pandora on it. 2nd one is in the kitchen so I can read recipes on it. I want a 3rd for the bathroom in front of the toilet but some people might think that is weird.)
Fix: buy in bulk which can reduce cost per magnet but an initial cost has to be payed up front. That is where kick starter comes in your interest and funds will help me buy the magnets at a lower price making the final product more cost competitive and useful.
Problem 7: initial tooling for the cases and fixture cost a lot. The shop that I have contracted to make the cases charges a initial minimum setup fee and fixture fee.
Fix: Kick Starter again Your initial funds and interest will let me know how popular my design is and weather I have to fixture for 1 at a time or 1000 at a time.
What do you get out of it? You get a great useful case at a discount and mounts a head of everyone else. And you help me know if my design is as useful as I think it is.
I have a great machine shop that currently produces my iPhone cases
seen at www.ArborCases.com
Then I take the cases and Hand sand them making sure they are perfect before I send them onto my Finisher that puts 3 coats of lacquer on making them water resistant and makes the grain pop.
I love wood and technology and want to share my love with the world.
