- Simplicity- Ultimate thin, so it’s suitable for any occasion. Non-compartmental modern design, which is easy for storing and keeping things organized.
- Security - Flexible RFID-blocking and sealed design has perfectly protected your cards, bills, and other small personal items.
- Intuition - With a swipe of a thumb (just like unlocking your phone) users can reveal their cards privately, and all at once in under a second.
Have you ever been unable to find your card with a huge line of buyers waiting behind you? Are you worried about the rain getting your bills wet? Did you know that back pain could result from your thick wallet? There are even more problems. Check out this list of ten problems that could occur while carrying a wallet!
There are several problems that traditional wallets could cause. Card wallets, although sturdy, still cause many problems. Money clips are the most unsafe options, although they may seem easy and convenient. We think the following problems with the existing wallet designs hinder efficiency:
Over-design: You do not need to have so many things on you.
Insecure: Not the first for safety.
Not-intuitive: Ignore user experience.
We based our design on Zen thinking, taking into consideration the design principles of a good wallet:

ZENLET minimal design of no compartment, for you to put the cards casually; And there when you slide open ZENLET again, you'll find out all the cards have been neatly arranged automatically perfect. Just like magic, isn’t it?
In this test, ZENLET demonstrated its waterproof and lightweight, which means that even if your ZENLET is dropped into the water, just take your time to right. (Reminder: the provision of ZENLET waterproof is based on the general use, but not includes the case of prolonged immersion)
In this test, ZENLET plays the advantages of its simple mechanism, dealt with gently. Thin surface with only 0.03kg could bear more than a thousand times than its weight in indifferent still.
It is an extreme test that ZENLET is filled of cards, falling down to the ground from a 10m height. This height is further than any higher anticipated falling accidents, and ZENLET remained intact. Forget the days of your slim wallet accidentally scattering and picking up your cards off the pavement. ZENLET no longer allows that happening.
To ZENLET, simplicity means better quality, lower price, fewer resources, and a more user-friendly design. We believe that these are the core value of a product and our customers really care about. We pursuit the pure spirit of Zen. Zen helps us establish design principles through our brainstorming process. Our motto is: “Bring the most fulfillment with the least design by enduing objects with a spirit of Zen.”
Thus the ZENLET was born.
Risks and challenges
We divided into three sections to illustrate our reactions and plannings for the predictable challenges and risks:
ZENLET production is a concept proposed from the Zen thinking. The greatest challenge to implement this concept in practice is: How do the least amount of component designed to open a slide-opening switch that allows users to easily expand all the cards with one hand? In this section, we spent a lot of time researching, developing and designing, passing through times of proofing, revising and numerous tests. Today, as products showed in films, are indeed fulfilled the expectations.
ZENLET parts, separated into ABS / PC, TPU and stainless steel three materials, require three sets of metal molds for mass production. Some parts are particular about exquisite precision. Contrary to the general wallet, the difficulty and cost of making must be much higher, is why we set a higher amount of fund-raising and the need to rely on your support.
We conservatively rather than exaggerated estimate the time needed for the manufacture and packaging, which the purpose is to serve ZENLET to the backers hands in the committal time. In addition, we tend to prioritize sending the areas requiring a longer delivery time, so that all the backers can get them at a similar time. Of course, if all the work completed ahead of schedule and we are very glad to let this thing early realization!
Having said that, knowing that there may be unanticipated challenges along the way, and in the true spirit of crowd funding, we intend to be totally transparent with any hurdles that we encounter and will keep you up to date. At the moment, we think the biggest challenge will be how to make ZENLET spread to the world. We hope by using social media, blogs and you sharing this project, together we can drive enough traffic to make ZENLET a success!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
