About

A brief intro....

Life is full of memorable and joyful moments, but it is hard to predict when that moments would come. Imagine when that time arrives and you eagerly want to capture that Kodak moments, how frustrating it can be when finding out that your iPhone ran out of storage space. You would definitely miss that moment by the time you manage to free up some space on your phone. You might have an external storage device that can be connected to your iPhone to expand its storage space but the chances of accidentally dropping your phone is highly likely when you try to capture that moment while holding both phone and the external storage devices at the same time. You lose the Kodak moment and you end up having a broken iPhone.

Prototype Gallery

To make life a little bit less miserable and a little bit more enjoyable, we worked very hard to come up with a product that we are proud of - the Space Case for iPhone 6 and 6s.

Traditionally you would purchase two separate items, one to protect your phone and one to expand your phone's storage space until the iPhone era comes. You can no longer use any flash memory. Below is how we come up with the product idea.

The simple, innovative design of the Space Case is based on our belief that a truly remarkable mobile computing device such as the iPhone should be equipped with sufficiently large storage space without consumers paying the premium price tag. The Space Case does not only provide you the option to expand your iPhone’s storage capacity but it also offers a good protection to your beloved iPhone. It looks just like your normal smartphone case but with a built-in flash memory. With the use of the Space case, you no longer need to carry with you an external USB hard drive wherever you go, you can simply select one of the Space case with your preferred storage size and color. Away you go!

The Space case is trendy, elegant and easy to use. It supports files and folders navigation e.g. you can browse through your favorite music and video files. It also allows you to back up your contact list. All you have to do is to download the supported app which will be made available from the apple store. Now with the extra storage capacity added to your iPhone, you can take your collections of offline media files and enjoy listening to your music, watching your movies during a long haul flight, basically whenever and wherever you go.

The Space case comes with a built-in lightning cable, which allows users to instantly access files stored in its flash memory by simply connecting the cable to the iPhone’s lightning port. When you are done, you can remove the cable from the phone and placed it perfectly back into the dedicated slot at the back of the case.

The lightning port supports a maximum write speed of 18 MB/s and read speed of 22 MB/s which allows data access and transfer at a lightning speed.

In order to maintain the slim look of your phone while having the case on, the case itself comes with a built-in micro USB port, user can easily locate a more commonly used Micro USB cable to connect you device to a PC to allow easy file transfer. The maximum read speed can go up to 35 MB/S with a write speed of 20 MB/S.

The Space case has a super thin curvy design, the top end of the case is only 3.5mm thick while the bottom end is only 5.5 mm.

The Space case has a selection of 3 different colors (red, white and black). The built-in lightning cable has a black rubberized finish which prevents it from getting dirty and worn over time.

Current Color selection 

With the use of its dedicated App (Bright Storage) which can be downloaded from the apple store for free, the Space case allows individual files or folders to be password protected. Users can also have the App itself protected. This feature ensures your privacy is well protected. There is now no need to have your files uploaded to the cloud while worrying about your important documents to be stolen.

The concept

Prototyping Process

We have been working closely with a number of manufacturing facilities to select the best factory to produce the Space case. We have gone through the process of designing, testing, making and fine-tuning the prototype of the Space case to make sure the final product is of high quality. Below are screenshots showing parts of the engineering prototypes.

Supported App (Bright Storage)

Below are screenshots of the iOS app that we have developed. We have fully tested the app and its functions but it still requires a bit of tweaking before the final version will be released.  

Project Timelines

As we are all ware that the iPhone does not support expandable memory, it is a daunting task to decide how much storage space you might need before buying your iPhone. You do not want to regret your purchase only fining out a month later that you would need more storage space that what the phone comes with. With the use of the Space case, you do not need to purchase a more expensive iPhone 6 or 6s for extra storage space. You can simply purchase one with the least amount of storage capacity and select one of our very cost effective Space case with varying storage options available. You can then save some money for the next generation of the iPhone. The Space case will definitely help you to create a win-win situation.

Having said that, this project will not be possible till we raise enough funding to help us to make a start. We strongly believe that the Space case would be a great product.

Risks and challenges

No project is without their risks and challenges but we try to do our absolute best to minimize them. Just like any other project, there is always the risk of not meeting our shipping dates, as challenges can arise. With our campaign, we took you, our backers, into consideration and make sure that we set realistic shipping dates so that we can get the space case to you on time. We will update you with any progresses that we made along the journey and try out best to overcome any issues that we might come across.

How about potential issues in the Supply Chain? This includes issues such as finding suppliers and engineering products for mass-production. Smooth execution is absolutely essential to overcoming such risks. We take this task seriously and have been working for months to negotiate with suppliers, testing component quality, and building a team that can execute on our promises.

We are also no strangers to Apple accessories, storage products or even Kickstarter.
