What's the Problem?

You have so many different chargers, for your phones (iPhone and Android), tablet, travel adapters, portable battery and more Type C devices coming up. BUT, you can’t throw away all of your old micro USB devices, and Apple just wouldn’t give up on their lightning connector. So, the question is, how many types of cables do you need for all of your devices?

The answer is 6. There are at least six essential cables that you need.

We’ve all been there, searching frantically for the right cable for a particular device. Murphy’s Law reminded us that you probably wouldn’t have the right cable in time of emergency, when you need to charge your device the most.

How easy is it to bring 6 different types of cable with you at all times? We say very. Very easy!

What is KableCARD?

6 Types of Cable in a Card

KableCARD is a revolutionary design that integrates all the essential and most frequently used cables connectors; a near 1 foot long Type C base cable with 3 types of adapters which makes up to 6 different types of cables.

You’d imagine something that contains the function of having 6 types of cables AND wireless charging to be quite heavy and definitely bulky. Well, that would defeat the purpose of it being portable and assessable whenever you are, wouldn’t it?

We designed to be as small and light as a credit card, with a thickness of 0.3”inch only.

Wireless Charging 

But what about that phone you bought that supports wireless charging? KableCARD is designed with a wireless charge. When Kable CARD is plugged into a power source, it acts as a wireless charger for your device. With or without wire, it’s all up to you.

Efficient & Organized 

The great thing about having cables and essentials to be designed as a card dimension is that it’s just so neat. Everyone has to dig around their bag looking for the right cable among other cables and objects lying around in the depth of the bag — but not you. With KableCARD, you don’t even have think about which type of cable to bring. Just slide the CARD out of your wallet or pocket. Whenever, and wherever you need.

More Than Cable

SIM Kit 
When you’re traveling overseas, you’d buy a local SIM card so that you wouldn’t receive an outrageous phone bill afterwards. KableCARD includes a SIM ejector pin and 2 nano SIM card storage. It might look simple, but makes a significant difference when the occasion arises.
 

Memory Reader

When there is no internet, no email access, how do you transfer a file to someone? Thumb-Drive works…but wait, what if someone only has Type C ports. What now?

No worries, KableCARD can read memory cards and support both Type A (Standard USB) and Type C. All done!

Phone Cradle

Long flight? Movie? Landscape mode and hands-free? Yes, yes and yes. One second to set up KableCARD as a cradle. What makes it even more awesome, is that you can watch movie on your phone hands-free WHILE charging it at the same time! (Don’t forget that KableCARD supports wireless charging as well.)

Ambient Light

KableCARD has elevated the ease and convenience for smartphone users. But at the same time, we, as designers, are concerned about the long term influence of smartphone usage, in particular, the harmful effect on your eyes when using smartphones in the dark or even dim environment.

According to multiple studies and reports from the American Optometric Association (AOA), some main symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain includes headache, blurred vision and eyestrain. One of the major cause of this is reading or staring at screens with poor lighting.

That’s why we designed a three-stage switch 3000K LED on KC7, with both diffusion foil and diffuse reflection sheet, reflecting soft diffused light of 1W on table tops (when KableCARD is used as a cradle) or on the wall, creating effective biased lighting to protect your eyes.

The CARD Series

We design products for travellers, so portability and efficiency are of the utmost importance. That's why all of CARD's products are designed to be of the same dimension as a credit card. Systematically optimizes all of your gadgets, making your life neat and organised.

We designed and created the following products in the same dimension (credit card sized) as KableCARD. These are products already from previous projects, already tested and market available. These four are selected especially because they are perfect complements for KableCARD. And for our Kickstarter backers in this campaign, we are offering them at a tremendous discount that can't be found anywhere else. 

CARD LIGHT (CL2)

CL2 is the most convenient reading light for travellers. It includs a 2500mA Li-On battery inside for 8 hours of illumination.The Magic Clip sticks on various surfaces and is reusable made from silicon.

KableCARD-EX

Due to popular request for more Traveller Bundle Deal tier (KableCARD + CA4-Pro), we have increased the number of slots in the Traveller Tier!

Meanwhile, consider the CA4-Pro is mounted on the wall socket, the short cable may not be sufficient for the user. So we decided to custom design a long cable, that is perfect for CA4 pro, and also the design fits the shape of KableCARD. As design fanatics, we are obsessed with making sure everything is perfectly storage-friendly and space-efficient, impeccably designed to be the same credit-card dimension (86x55mm rectangle) as the KableCARD. Studying and prototyping, we have custom designed a sleek extension cable accessory that fits with the KableCARD seamlessly.

STRETCH GOAL: Free KableCARD-extension for Traveller Tier!

We have finished with the prototyping so far, if we can get all 300 slots in Traveller Tier filled up, we would be able to start tooling, and provide the KC7-EX for free to all backers in the [Bundle Deal] Traveller Tier. It's more costly for us, but we are willing to absorb the cost so that a better product experience can be designed and created for you.

The KC7-EX is a custom designed 90cm long flat-head cable that fits in a 0.6cm semi-transparent customized case so that it’s clear how the cable is rolled up inside.

There is a space reserved for adapters (which you will receive from your KableCARD) designed to fit Micro-USB or Lightning adapter. The unique ripple design in the interior will guide the cable to be rolled up in a perfect way that you’d expect it to be.

The flexible clips on all four corners will hold the cable so that you can adjust the cable length according to your needs. You can even detach the entire cable depending on your usage, or you can use the cable while the case is still attached — it’s completely flexible whichever way you like it!

This is KableCARD-EX. Designed to be a perfect companion of KabelCARD.

CARD PHONE (CM1-globe)

CM1-globe is a slim credit card-sized mobile phone, system supports GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 WCDMA 850 / 1900 / 2100. 4GB built-in memory. With powerful functions such as Calendar, mp3, recorder, radio...etc. Standard Micro USB charging port, fit for all USB charger.

Timeline

We have finished prototyping, EVT is done in Feb, and what you see in the video and pictures above are the functional prototype that we have been working on! We will start DVT in May once we have hit our funding goals in this Kickstarter campaign. 


リスクと課題

Due to the particularly small size of the KableCARD, we had to design and build customized components and figure out ways to integrate everything to optimize the design.

To minimize the defection ratio during mass production upon successful Kickstarter campaign will require high skills and immense patience. We have done the EVT and moving on to the DVT and PVT now. Our team has a very strong background in design for manufacturing. We have the parts sourcing, manufacturing flow, and testing procedures well defined. If the demand is high, we will be able to scale production and logistics accordingly.
