Smartphones are rectangular, flat devices that hardly fit the ergonomics of the human hand. Yet, we use them an average of 150 times a day not realizing that it’s often a real effort to hold it the way we need to.
POPSICASE has a hideaway handle that helps you hold your smartphone in a way that allows you to use your hand instinctively.
We love our planet and we want to put special care into minimizing our ecological footprint in the whole production process, from the time that POPSICASE is born, with the selection of the material, until the user stops using it. That is why the cover is designed to be made from 100% upcycled material that contributes keeping our oceans and land clean, and fighting against climate change.
POPSICASE has two parts: a cover that protects your smartphone from the unexpected, and a sliding handle that, when folded, turns POPSICASE into a conventional case.
The cover of POPSICASE is manufactured with recycled plastic that comes from abandoned fishing nets used in the Mediterranean sea. Fishing nets have a limited working life and are frequently replaced. Until very recently these nets, mostly made of nylon, were thrown into dumpsters and treated as waste, increasing pollution of our seas and land. From now on, and thanks to the collaboration of many companies, old nets are collected in 17 ports along the Mediterranean coastline, and are washed, chopped, melted and made into a sturdy material that we then take to our factory and inject into our mold to create the cover part of our cases.
The tire of a caravan that traveled all over Europe, the can of soda that two lovers drank when they declared their love, the handlebars of a bike which five children used to learn to ride... Who knows how many stories are contained within this handle that you’ll have in your hand? Pure aluminum is extracted from bauxite through a highly polluting process. However it is also a totally recyclable material, and we’re going to take advantage of that to make our handle.
POPSICASE will be available, at the moment for iPhone 6, 6S and 7.
The handle of POPSICASE is made out of fully recycled aluminum that is strong enough to keep your smartphone safe. POPSICASE is also elegantly slim, has a pleasant ‘soft touch’ layer and two holes where you can attach whatever you want.

POPSICASE will be available physically in March 2017, but you can still give a POPSICASE as a gift this Christmas:
Hi, we are Maria José and Pablo, co-founders of POPSICASE. When we thought of our case, we came up with the initial design and worked day and night for many months to bring it to fruition realize. So we wanted to make something that were functional but also looking great with a deep conviction in being eco-friendly. Ana incorporated in our projects some months ago to deal with the numbers. So we are a crazy team involved in designing solutions to problems we come across in daily life, and also take care of our planet.
The money raised in this campaign will be used entirely in the manufacturing process of the cover and the handle of POPSICASE, that means in other words, the injection of the material, that comes from abandoned fishing nets and scrap aluminium, in our moulds.

Risks and challenges
The risks could be in possible delays in the production process, were there to be any incidence with one of the suppliers that work with us, particularly in the manufacture of the mold, which is the most laborious process.
But, as we have explained in our project, we manufacture and process everything in Barcelona, from the mold to the last sticker, from the injection and polishing to the painting. Any problem in the production process would be solved immediately, because we have alternative suppliers nearby. Barcelona is an industrial zone and not only do we have everything here, but it is also excellent quality. All the logistics of assembly, packaging and preparation for shipment are made in our facilities, minimizing the risks to zero.
Los riesgos podrían ser posibles retrasos en el proceso de producción, si hubiera alguna incidencia con uno de los proveedores que trabajan con nosotros, particularmente en la fabricación del molde, que es el proceso más laborioso.
Pero, como hemos explicado en nuestro proyecto, fabricamos y procesamos todo en Barcelona, desde el molde hasta el último adhesivo, desde la inyección y el pulido hasta la pintura. Cualquier problema en el proceso de producción se resolvería de inmediato, porque tenemos proveedores alternativos cerca. Barcelona es una zona industrial y no solo tenemos todo aquí, sino también una excelente calidad. Toda la logística de montaje, embalaje y preparación para el envío se realizan en nuestras instalaciones, minimizando los riesgos a cero.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
