About

I am raising these funds to prove there is sufficient interest in my prototype to take it on the journey to becoming a shipping product. A successful Kickstarter campaign will allow me to continue to work towards a final design of the RightStand. I've spent the past couple of months working on prototypes and refining the look of it so far. I feel like it is in the final stretch at this point.

l will be using a portion of the funds to build necessary fixtures and to purchase the raw materials needed to make and ship RightStands to my backers. I will also need time to create the documentation to be sent to backers who want to build their own.

I have the physical space necessary to produce the first batch of 100 in the basement of my home. I have many of the tools ready to go and will only need to invest in a modest portable dust removal system. Tools do break from time to time, so I have accounted for that in the goal for this campaign just in case.

The current prototype #8 includes a slot in the rear for an iPhone. I'll be soliciting feedback from backers to determine if the slot makes it to the final design. The Apple Watch may be more autonomous when watchOS 2 ships, but right now requires a nearby iPhone for full functionality. I'm looking forward to hearing what backers think.

Risks and challenges

There are two main challenges I see. One is producing the product to the high standard consistently and the other is fulfillment. I've been at work designing the fixtures needed to make the stands consistently. A great deal of time has been spent considering each step in the process to eliminate potential for error. I have the past two years of experience running my custom t-shirt business to learn how to ship products to far flung places. It really is all about honoring your commitments.
