Thanks again for all the support! I consider this campaign a huge success because if I had gone forward with this project on my own, and it failed, it would have broken me. I would have had to get a real job again, something I never want to do!
The Bluetooth Game Gripper is $40+ 7 for shipping for pre-orders. We plan on charging $45 +shipping once it in released, which is still much less than other options.
The gripping mechanism is very simple! It's just telescoping steel rods and a spring. You can remove the gripper by unhooking the spring. We have made the rods long enough to accommodated the largest phones we can find.
The bGG will work with the iPhone 3G and 3GS.
All of the pledges include domestic shipping to all 50 states. For International shipping, you will need to add $14.
As a general rule, the Bluetooth Game Gripper does not work with the Sense technology that HTC uses on most of their android phones, but we now have a fix- Cyanogenmod! Here is a video of the HTC EVO running Cyanogenmod 7RC.
A friend of mine that works for me to make Game Grippers has generously let me use music from his band, Shadowseer, in this video. He has also donated copies of their latest album to use as rewards for this campaign! Check them out at shadowseerband.com
We are actively trying to get the Bluetooth Game Gripper to work with more phones! We are also busy working with game developers to get this supported with more games.
We will email you a certificate that says "Game Gripper Runner Up". You can print it and hang it on your wall.

In addition to a Bluetooth Game Gripper, T-shirt and stickers, you get a Game Gripper shop tour. You can come see my shop and I will spend the whole day helping you develop one of your ideas. We might even be able to make a prototype of something for you. This cannot be redeemed until after the bGG has been launched (because I will be too busy!).
