Whether you're sitting at a coffee shop or camping in the woods, StylusFlex is for anyone, anywhere...
After our sixth prototype, we shared StylusFlex with users in San Francisco. We learned new ways to use it we had never imagined before. We're still discovering new use cases...
Screens are getting bigger, but our hands aren't (guess evolution just can't catch up to Moore's Law)! Effortlessly reach any part of your screen by wrapping StylusFlex around your fingers.
Whether it's watching YouTube videos of cats jumping 10 ft high, reading the news, or Skyping with family, it's frustrating to lean your phone up against the ketchup you're about to use and have it drop. Plug it in, bend it over, and enjoy your cat videos with your meal.
StylusFlex has a patented design providing for lossless capacity; meaning, every time it reaches the electrostatic grid of your touch screen, the screen will react precisely in the area of its touch without ever having to touch your screen twice. Gone are the days of repeatedly poking your screen with the stylus, waiting for it to react.
Benefits of using a stylus on a touch screen:
- Precise touches - you've conquered autocorrect!
- No smears - keep your screen clean.
- Take notes - were you really about to use your finger in a meeting?
- Drawing - finger painting is fun and all but...
- Games - c'mon, they're just more fun!
- Busy cooking with saucy hands and can't touch your screen.
- Professional design applications.
Our beautiful packaging is made from 100% recyclable earth-friendly material and to offset our use of nonrenewable energy we purchase carbon credits.
For the past year we have been developing StylusFlex. About a year ago I was using a stylus at work and as I was getting ready to leave, I naturally put the stylus back on my desk. On my commute back home I was writing emails and playing a few games - I needed my stylus. Why did I leave it at work? We then realized, the essence of a stylus is somewhat backwards: they’re meant to be used on our touch screens, 98% of which are mobile devices that are used, well... while you're mobile. But the stylus seemed to stay in one place – kept in our office desks or at our homes. So what was the point of a stylus meant for our mobile devices if it's left at home?
We ventured to solve that problem - to create a stylus that anyone could use and didn’t think twice about bringing with them on-the-go. A stylus that would be comfortable in your hand, but unnoticeable in your pocket. Our first task was figuring out whether it was "styluses" or "styli." This was hard. Ultimately though, after pondering like Socrates, we left no stones unturned and came to the consensus it was "styluses."
Screens are getting bigger! Using a stylus feels natural, like holding a pen, but used on your 21st century touch screen. You can use it when you're drawing, cooking, taking notes, or even when you have gloves on because it's too freezing outside in San Francisco (...meanwhile in Siberia). StylusFlex is unique in its use cases and is the ideal replacement for selfie sticks as they are being banned worldwide, as well as being a great substitute to the $100 Apple Pencil which only works for iPad Pro.
Manufacturing and Delivery
We have been planning meticulously over the past few months to be able to share our passion with you. Our manufacturer is ready to go, and we are asking for your help to make this a reality and get StylusFlex in your hands. We are sure you'll love it. If we reach our funding goal, we would be able to hit the minimum order quantity and place the very first order of StylusFlex. Please join us.
Risks and challenges
Manufacturing a physical product can be a tough journey. In our experience, we've learned that the number one most important factor is your relationship with the supplier. Luckily we were introduced to a high quality manufacturer and have built a trusted relationship with them with transparency and open communication - a requirement for us. However, even though we have working prototypes in our hands that passed quality inspections and contracts in place with our manufacturer ready to go; there's always a possibility of something going unplanned. Because of this, we've buffered our timeline to embrace the unexpected and make sure we deliver your product by October 2016. We would love to ship earlier and are committed to doing everything possible to making this happen.
Our #1 goal is to make the highest quality, most useful stylus on the market and get it into your hands as soon as possible. We will work non-stop to deliver the product on time and make sure you see transparency from start to finish. Feel free to reach out to us personally anytime you have a question, thought, or idea at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
