Why? cable is an easy-to-use and intuitive way to charge and sync your iOS devices in parallel, meaning you can actively charge and sync two devices at the same time! We have developed the Why? cable as an alternative charging/syncing method to support a clutter-free life style.
The Why? Cable is an exciting new take on a familiar product, one that will allow you to streamline your experiences with your devices.
Why the cable?
Because that battery won’t last forever!
What it does:
- Charges two devices simultaneously ( any two iOS devices iPad included )
- Syncs two devices to iTunes simultaneously
- Works with any USB port
- Reduces clutter/replaces tangled mess
- Makes people happy!
What it doesn't do:
- Transfer data from device to device (NO Peer to Peer sharing)
- Slow you down!
Here is a rundown of exactly where we stand today and were we want to go...
Over the last 3 months, we
have developed the schematics and PCB layouts as well as tested multiple
versions of the design and arrived at a fully functional prototype that works!!
By “working” we mean that, when 2 iOS devices
(using Lightning connectors) are plugged into a computer’s USB outlet, they will both charge and sync to iTunes at
the same time, every time, all the time! No matter what! Our internal goal is
has always been to make a project that just works... not sometimes works, but
one that is unquestionably reliable!!
are doing more electronics testing and working to refine how the electronic
circuits work with computers.
We have started and are well under way in
regards to brand design and website development. We want to engage the kick
starter community to refine not only the brand identity of Why?, but also the
product industrial design. Over the course of the 30-day campaign, we plan to
show multiple design concepts, take feedback and retool the design, while
continuously posting the progress and encouraging the community to give
more feedback and get involved.
will be working with factories in Asia to set up production and we will be
workign with apple and the chosen Contract Manufacture to pass the apple
testing and apple approval processes. We will be workign very closely with them
on this step.
We will also be planing our marketing campaign
and planning events and trade shows to attend to prompt the why? Brand.
After the near future
, We have a lot of ideas for new and exciting products
that plush the limits of technology and function... we are excited to build the
why? brand and continue to develop products that make a difference..
