About

Hardcore Glass Cable

This Hardcore Glass Cable project will be the best cable for Glass as it will to connect to an external battery supply and allow you to comfortably keep going and going without ever worrying about the dreaded low power notification.

Better than that, the design has been finessed so that the cable tucks out of the way and behind your ear. It has also been designed so that the cable doesn't tug at your Glass when you turn your head. It is going to be long enough to snake down your side and into a pocket or bag where you can pack away whatever power pack you want.

I’m looking to raise the funds here to build this cable. I have a prototype and have already created the first set of 3D proof prints along with the SolidWorks files. At this point all that remains in the design end of things is to finalize the design, print off a second round of 3D prints to verify the usability and order up molds. I have a supplier/manufacturer I have used in previous projects already on board with tooling costs, per-part costs and packaging costs quoted and ready to roll. All the graphic arts is done and the packaging design is finalized.

Risks and challenges

The largest risk is getting a quality product on a short run and short time frame.

I have a manufacturer I have worked with on previous projects lined up to produce the whole product including QC prior to shipment.

A large portion of the design is fairly standard in the manufacturing and this will help with quality and speed of delivery. We shouldn't have any issues with our first-article components because of this and should very quickly be able to go to production samples.

As soon as we get funded the following lead times will apply:
a. Tooling -- 21-30 days
(to first-article component
samples).
b. Samples -- 14 days
(to production-grade cable
samples).
c. Production -- 30 days
(to final-inspection).

Time frame includes in-process oversight and final US Mil-Spec inspection; includes delivery to FOB Hong Kong Port.

From there we will arrange delivery via international carrier priority bulk to a pick and pack order fulfillment warehouse in the United States.

At that point our backers rewards will be packed and delivered.

We have avoided the big holidays in China where everything shuts down for a full month. Although we are getting close to Christmas rush for manufacturing, our design fits into production cycles and can be easily appended to other companies large orders. This should streamline our time frame and delivery dates.
