 The i-Ox is a holder and a stand for smartphones. The main purpose of the i-Ox is to improve consumer experience by providing an adjustable grip to your device; this in turn will free up your hands and provide a better experience while typing, gaming, photographing, browsing the web and doing everything else you may desire. One can easily attach and detach it on the back of the device and begin to use the device more efficiently. Once attached, all of the screen points can be reached using only one hand! Also the i-Ox easily and comfortably takes the folded position while attached on the device.

                     Just Click & Go!

WHY DO YOU NEED the i-Ox Smartphone Grip?

Smartphones have entered our life more and more intensely. As we know they come in a wide range of sizes and we feel it lacks a certain user friendliness. How many times did your phone drop on your face while you were lying down on bed gaming? Can you reach all of screen's points using just one hand? Can you take a picture of a bird flying from high above or shoot a video at full arm's length? Can you relax off tightly holding a phone, while talking or typing in a text message?

The i-Ox Smartphone Grip will help you to solve all of those problems.

  WHAT IS AN IDEAL WAY TO USE the i-Ox ?

  • Gaming;
  • Lying down & sharing a news article in bed;
  • Easily Turn a smartphone from horizontal position to vertical;
  • Talk on the phone even without holding;
  • Steadying a shot with just one hand;
  • Type a text message with just one hand;
  • As a Stand to watch the movie or cartoons.                 

DESIGN & ENGINEERING EVOLUTION

The first view of the design...

The idea was realized in the first prototype and made in Stainless steal with a plastic button as shown in the pictures.

DEMAND STUDY

We decided to exhibit our first concept at the CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas. The main task of participation in the exhibition was interesting to find out whether our product to the buyer. These three days have shown us that it is necessary to continue. There was significant demand for the accessory amongst distributors and companies alike.

We knew there were more improvements we could make. The result is a carefully engineered, lightweight, thinner and more portable smart accessory for your device. It’s stylish, modern and practical.

Our cutting edge design team carefully looked at how to improve the i-Ox Smartphone Grip & Stand to best satisfy you, the user. Firstly, the plastic parts were changed to stainless steel, giving it a strong, durable and higher quality feel. We then looked at the size of the i-Ox Smartphone Grip. The smartphone and electronics world are moving at lightning speed and we needed to adapt our design to fit even the thinnest of these devices. So we made the profile slimmer and so light-weight you won’t even notice it’s in your pocket.

  WHERE WE ARE ?

ALL WE NEED IS YOU.

We spent a lot of time and resources to come at this stage. This small devise has more than 10 parts made in very high tolerance using different manufacturing technologies.

To finalize this project we need your support. We will use these funds to finalize expensive production molds and to get the i-Ox to your smartphone as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges

The i-Ox is absolutely new product. Producing new products is never easy, but we are confident in our abilities to deliver this project on time and with good quality.

Keep in mind there are always issues that can arise. Though it is a small device, it consists of more than 10 different parts. You can never rule out a possible problem with a manufacturer that could delay our schedule or prevent us from obtaining the quality that the i-Ox design requires.

Despite all of this, our delivery date is September - November, 2014.
We will try to ship earlier and we will do everything we can to make this happen.
