Podi-m. An elegant, smart, sturdy dock that matches the styling and build quality of your iPhone, iPad or iPad Mini. Micro USB option!
497 backers pledged $42,288 to help bring this project to life.

Arrival time

Hi everyone! Sorry for the delayed update. We have been in production, making some beautiful Podi-m's and have experienced a delay with the wood docks. The wood keeps cracking and flaking during the CNC process, so we had them hand milled which takes much longer but doesn't waste wood by constantly breaking the wood rings as the CNC machine does. We could not ship the black and white docks without completing the full order due to cost, so everything was held up while this problem was being addressed. We have a confirmed container on a shipping vessel and all Podi-m's will arrive Oct 17.
So sorry for yet another delay.

We have also been in discussions with angel investment groups to fund the project for larger production runs for retail store placement in 2014 and an expanded product catalogue, including Podi-m's to match the new gold color of the iPhone 5s. We are hoping to release this new version in early 2014. Be on the look out for Podi-m to be featured in British Vogue's "gifts to give" section in the upcoming Nov issue. Good things are happening for Podi-m thanks to you! If you have any address changes, please advise your new address. Thanks for your support!

      I got a confirmation letter from the CA attorney general, Kamala Harris regarding my complaint about the lack of communication and delays. What's the latest status?

      What's the latest status, Laine?

    3. Creator Tony Heugh on November 7, 2013

      Please can we get an update?

    4. Creator Dimitri Harbers on November 6, 2013

      Laine is gone with the money!

    5. Creator David Matthew Decker on November 5, 2013

      We need an update. We have been patient. This is no longer a matter of being delayed. This is now a matter of poor communication. Your backers have a story to share; you've had the opportunity to shape that story. At this point, the collective story does not hold you in a positive light.

      What a surprise, another promised ship date and still nothing

    7. Creator Justin Powels on October 28, 2013

      So it's October 28th...No update since September...Podi-Ms supposedly here since October 17th. And since you didn't report a delay, I'm sure you're hunched over busy with the rest of your team, boxing up units and shipping them out! I mean, seriously, nobody would make me wait for a WHOLE year just for a stand...I mean, seriously...

      Laine came to kickstarter to get money to buy tooling so you could take Podi-m to retail so we have gave her the money but we have know Podi-m.

      This kickstarter campaign finished 13th December 2012... So here we are almost a year later she is making Podi-m for retail & bringing out a gold one no offer of compensation, Due to poor direction & poor comms this has been worst kickstarter ever will have to report her to kickstarter I think the money was spent on other things. Now she is going to Angel investors because she has know money she's having a laugh

      Why are the Berkeley Hotel in London, and Luxury Yachts like the Parsifal IV and S/Y Meteor getting their Podi-M docks before your original Kickstarter backers?

      We are 8 months overdue at this point.

      Please update us again on arrival time and email us tracking numbers.

      Time doesn't wait for everyone...

    12. Creator Lynne Kendall on October 24, 2013

      It is past Oct 17 and wondered when we might expect receipt of our Podi-m??

    13. Creator Vincent on September 30, 2013

      This is great news! I hope you can make your dreams become true and hope to see the Podi-M in lots of retail stores!

    14. Creator Kris Michiels on September 30, 2013

      Is the date the same for Belgium?

    15. Creator Andrew King on September 30, 2013

      Podi-m to be featured in British Vogue's "gifts to give" section in the upcoming Nov issue. You will sell loads well done, you need to making the the gold ones like now not 2014 Angel investments would not go there try and get family or friends to help out.

      Tell Vogue the gold Podi-m is coming soon I wish you luck & would like a refund...
