The origins of the Tablet-Branch:

They say necessity is the mother of invention. In a world where multi-tasking is the norm, I would often spend my nights researching on a tablet in bed with my wife. One night after holding the tablet extended above my head for a long period of time my arm grew tired and I accidentally dropped it, on my wife :s The next day I went to the store to go pick up something to solve this, something simple, some kind of portable ‘arm’. Surprisingly, there was nothing available at any store I went to that weekend and our online searches were fruitless. My wife and I came to the realization that others must have this need too, and as I travel to Asia periodically, I was determined to find a supplier of a product like this to import, but most surprisingly, on my next trip that Summer I found nothing….time to become an inventor!

My wife and I constructed many different crude versions out of household items with each version getting us closer to our goal: a device that would be portable, attach easily to our bedpost, and be versatile enough to clamp on to many surfaces. Many months later we had a winner!

I am an entrepreneur at heart and with the amount of travelling I do because of my business, I was able to source the right companies to help me get the most reliable materials that allow for maximum affordability while maintaining the highest quality. We designed it to be ergonomic, portable, light-weight and durable, and the fully adjustable & extendable arm can rotate 360 degrees.

After a short while, the Tablet-Branch was born and ready for retail; unfortunately, at that very time I was diagnosed with cancer.

8 months of chemotherapy later, in October 2014, I was given the all-clear sign from the Doctors (100% remission) and now this guy is back in action! Given the financial burden I was under for the past while, my initial capital for this product evaporated, but thanks to the Kickstarter community, I have a more favourable opportunity to launch this product without selling my soul to angel investors.

The manifestation:

The all new Tablet-Branch 360º fully adjustable arm provides unlimited viewing angles allowing you to conveniently operate your tablet and other devices in ways and places you've always wanted!

Risks and challenges

We have overcome so many obstacles and hurdles to get to where we are with Tablet-Branch. Some of these include: over a year and a half of research and development, multiple different designs and ramifications, sourcing of the best materials and construction methods, very high cost of owning the industrial mold for production, getting resellers and stores interested in our product and most importantly filing the patents in China, Canada and the United States!
We now are thrilled and feel that the project is ready to go to market!
There are always new challenges and obstacles presenting themselves.
Some of the challenges we are facing are:
Expanding our promotions and marketing.
Educating the public that this product exists and helping them see how it will benefit them.
Getting the product into stores and resellers.
Being able to have the production capability to meet the demand for our product.
Having enough inventory to meet the demands of major stores when they place large orders.
