About this project
Okay, so here’s the deal. I was constantly getting locked out of my apartment and always found myself calling my roommates to let me in! They weren’t happy if they were at school, work, or asleep in bed! That’s why I created the Key Kubby. I realized if I had a key attached to my iPhone, being locked out would never be an issue.
The Key Kubby solved my problems
Well, using my Key Kubby for several months now, it has solved several issues in my daily life. Whether I am walking to school or going out for a bite to eat, I would leave my home and only need my iPhone and house key. My house key was either misplaced after detaching it from my key ring, or I had to lug around my entire key ring. The Key Kubby is also perfect when I go for a run or to the gym.
How does the Key Kubby function?
The Key Kubby consists of 3 pieces made out of a high quality TPU grade plastic.
- The iPhone case
- Sliding button
- Back plate
Simply put the button on the back of your house key, slide into the case, apply the back cover and clip the case into your phone! It’s SIMPLE!
As of now these are the only two types of keys that the Key Kubby is compatible with. We are working on a way to make the Key Kubby more universal so it can fit a variety of keys.
Will the Key Kubby fit my iPhone 5?
YES, The Key Kubby will be offered for both the iPhone 4/4s and the iPhone 5. You will choose which one you would like at the end of the campaign when we send out the survey.
Do you have some feedback or advice I could use to make the Key Kubby better? Please use the comment section at the top of the page, I would love to discuss improvements with my AWESOME BACKERS! Also, what sort of stretch goals would you like to see? Let’s have some fun with this and make it the most convenient iPhone case you have ever used.
Here's how I got here:
Once I came up with the concept of the Key Kubby, I found an engineer to develop the functionality of it, along with making a 3-D print of the design. Through his connections, I was able to find a great manufacturer to improve on the design/functionality and finally have a working prototype!
Risks and challenges
The challenges that I might face with KeyKubby is getting the word out, and convincing the public this product can he very helpful in their daily lives. With so many great products on Kickstarter, we are hoping that ours will stand apart from the rest. To reach as many people as possible, we are asking friends, families, and various blogs to help spread the word.
Once the funding is in place, the challenge will be producing on a large scale. Depending on outside help is difficult, but we have been dealing with a manufacturer for months and have established a solid relationship, which has has given us a lot of confidence in them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
