About

About this project  

How many times during a meeting or on a date, have you had to rub off the dirty smudges and fingerprints from your smartphone display onto your jeans or shirt? Or you had to breath on the screen and then find a lens cloth to shine it? Or worse, you rubbed your hand over the display, hoping to magically remove the oily smears and spots?

Quante volte, durante una riunione o un incontro galante, vi siete trovati a strofinare lo smartphone su un jeans o su una camicia per evitare che si vedessero quelle fastidiose impronte sul display? Oppure avete tirato fuori una pezzolina per lenti per tentare di lucidarlo alitandoci sopra? O peggio ancora avete passato sopra una mano sperando di eliminare lo sporco e le macchie magicamente ?

i-Wipe simplifies everything, design and convenience at your fingertips

i-Wipe semplifica tutto, design e praticità a portata di mano.

Imagine the phone cover that you have been using till now, plus one unique element, a slider covered in a special microfiber fabric with a high capacity for antistatic and non-scratching cleaning and which allows you to keep your smartphone constantly clean with one simple movement.  


This elegant, ergonomic and effective slider was made by engineers and designers. Its ultra slim thickness, streamlined form and delicacy allows regular use without altering the dimension and weight of the cover.

Immaginate la cover che avete utilizzato fino ad oggi ma con un elemento unico in più, uno slider rivestito con uno speciale tessuto in microfibra dotato di un elevato potere pulente, antistatico, antigraffio e specifico per display, che vi permetterà con un semplice gesto di tenere costantemente pulito il vostro smartphone. 

 Lo slider è stato realizzato da ingegneri e designer che lo hanno reso elegante, ergonomico ed efficace. Il suo minimo spessore, la forma affusolata e la sua leggerezza ne consentono il normale utilizzo non alterando in alcun modo le dimensioni ed il peso della cover. Per maggiori dettagli vi invitiamo a visitare il nostro sito www.iwipecase.com In fondo a questa pagina è disponibile la traduzione in italiano delle ricompense previste per i partecipanti al progetto

WHY i-Wipe

WIPER  

The wiper was made in ABS, a recyclable, light, resistant and easy-to-wash material, allowing a functional and durable product to do the job with one simple stroke. The ergonomic and streamlined form allows you to gently pass over the display, conforming perfectly to the delicate surface.

MICROFIBER  

The wiper is covered in a special MADE IN ITALY microfiber substance. Thanks to its velvety weave, this product can perfectly and effectively clean delicate surfaces, such as photographic and microscope lens and displays. Moreover, the microfiber was made with a particular element that renders it antistatic, non-scratch and with a high capacity for cleaning

COVER

Shape, weight and dimension of the phone cover are the same of those presently on the market. In fact, the presence of the wiper requires no significant variation. It will be made from different material:

  • PU leather: the most requested type on the market for its versatility
  • Genuine leather: characteristically assertive and elegant 
  • EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate): environmentally friendly and very lightweight combined with resistance and durability

 The practical magnet closure guarantees effective protection of the smartphone and wiper.

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT US ?

Because you are enthusiastic about the new phone cover for the smartphone and you, too, want to be a part of the i-Wipe project: the innovative way to clean your touchscreen...with the final challenge to actualize the green version of the phone cover and helping to save the planet.

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THE MONEY WE RAISE?  

Up till now, we have involved noteworthy finalized investments, from obtaining the patent to the study of feasibility, as well as the engineering of the product and the realization of the working prototypes. We are currently at the final rush and are running the last mile. The necessary costs for completion and getting the i-Wipe on the market are essentially linked to the molds, die-boards and assembling the various parts.

 i-Wipe for social

Contributing to the project will also help the differently abled. The creators of i-Wipe, in fact, want to put differently abled people in the front line in the social network, and have designated part of the labor necessary for the assembly of the phone covers to a co-op of differently abled people.

Meet the TEAM  

Valerio and Roberto, the creators of the i-Wipe, are both 49 years old and have been friends since university. From the birth of the idea of the i-Wipe, they have rolled up their sleeves and with just a few resources available, began their adventure collaborating with designers and engineers and created the i-Wipe.

Risks and challenges

Our challenge is to create an entirely recyclable MADE IN ITALY product. The phone cover will be made in EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), a plastic copolymer material of ethylene and vinyl acetate, recyclable, water-proof, pleasing to the touch, nontoxic, antibacterial, fire-retardant, sound reducing and shock absorbent. In fact, its anti-vibration capacity protects the smartphone from damage caused by impact or dropping. Moreover, its recyclability allows toxic emissions abatement derived from the disposal of traditional phone covers. We have been able to create partially recyclable models, but we want to achieve a product that is entirely environmentally friendly to help the planet.
