BSA troop 190 signs up! TechUrchin Review Gives The Padestal Three perfect 10's.   Go to http://www.padestal.com

Why are so many people loving The Padestal ? Ryan wrote "It's like my tablet is floating in the air."

Chris Batchelor writes "Elegant design. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the tablet/phone manufacturers buys your idea."

The Padestal is a unique device which demonstrates that simplicity in form does not necessitate simplicity in function. It even allows you to charge your tablet while in use. 

Our product has no moving parts which makes it extremely durable yet it can match or outperform the most extravagant and expensive tablet stands available.

COMMENT Lynda Boyd "Oooh colors XD My stand right now only has like one height and is grey -.- I really like these though, I'll share with everybody :)"

Once People catch on, they get it !

It takes some time and exposure to bring public awareness to that fact.

Scott Zientara, a Padestal Backer just wrote "If you use a tablet to Facetime, Hangout, Skype, etc, try this product. If you like to use your iPad for recipes while you cook, this will keep it out of the mess and easy to read. If you do trade shows/craft shows, you can use this at your booth to turn your tablet into a instant multimedia display or pair it with Square and have an instant point of sale setup."

We also are in the process of giving our website a facelift and are currently working with a graphic designer to get an attractive package that really has that pop off the shelf effect.

To move from an initial offering to the retail chain with a new company takes many intermediary steps, and we are fully commited to that process.

In order to assure a successful launch Cromack Innovations LLC has paired up with Ray Nicholas,  President of Creators Stained Glass , who has honed its reputation for innovation in the bottle and glass-cutting business. Ray was instrumental in helping to develop and refine the Padestal and has a proven Track Record of Success.

Together, we hope that we can bring the ground breaking stability, performance, and versatility the Padestal has to offer, and get it into the hands of the consumer at an attractive price. We thank You for your support.

Risks and challenges

It took a lot of fine tuning and engineering to get the Padestal to work so well in everyone of the 16 positions it can assume. Every time we would tweak an angle we would inadvertently effect the other two angles that all those other positions relied on. We had put a lot of thought into every thing we did and that took a lot of prototypes and 3D prints. At this point we have a super refined product and will have to find a package that will do it justice, and is worthy of its content. We are ready to deliver.
