About

Ninja Clip is your ultimate gym companion

Hi everyone! This is Oliver and Christoph from Germany.  

Both of us were facing the same problems at the gym: we never knew where to put our towel during workout, so we put it on the fitness device. But the towel always fell off of it and onto the floor. Yuck. Also, we never knew with which side of the towel we had already dried our faces with and which side of the towel had already been laying on the bench. Plus it has always been tiring to pick up the phone for every change of settings like turning on the camera or lowering the music volume. You have all been there, right?

So we came up with Ninja Clip!  Our multifunctional clip includes two strong magnets and an integrated NFC-chip.  Ninja Clip can be used as a universal magnetic holder. By clipping the magnets together it forms a loop to be hung up on every hook around. It works great in many ways, it holds the towel everywhere you want - from hook to every magnetic surface like radiators or fitness devices or door handles -  and it also turns the towel into a scarf. The branding on one side of the clip is not only pretty, but is also the solution for the which-is-the-yucky-side-of-the-towel-problem, because it indicates the clean side. The integrated NFC-chip sets your phone into the modes you want just by touching the clip softly with your phone.

From a piece of leather to a real improvement for your workout

In the early stages of our project we had to fight a bunch of complications. It all started with the magnets. The challenge was to find a perfect sized magnet that was also strong enough to hold a big sweaty towel.

After months of testing we finally found the best possible version. Then we started to think about the design: It had to be small enough to be put in a pocket and big enough to hold a towel or headphone cords. Also it had to have a unique shape and should come in different colours of choice. Only one thing was out of question: the material. We always wanted premium quality genuine leather. 

We wanted the clip to last every long and hard workout, so we focused on quality and usability every step of the design and production process. 

By using lasercutting technology we were able to manufactur our prototypes in a great quality. Also we had the possibility to bring our logo on the clip.

Behind the scenes

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

There are two challenges to face: We love our product and are very proud of our prototypes and the development of Ninja Clip so far. We are extremely motivated to get it out on the market. This campaign is super important for us: It needs to be successful, because it is all or nothing: With the funding we will be able to get the Clip to the fitness loving people, if not, it's not going to happen. That's simple math, but will lead to lots of sleepless nights, tracking the campaign, hopes and fears.

Then our biggest challenge is to find a reliable producer for our Ninja Clip that provides and maintains high quality standards. We alredady talked to some producers that love our Clip as much as we do.
