Note automatic upgrade: Treebunga and Sungabunga now have an patent pending advanced magnetic shield. We also will replace all the magnets that adhere to devices with protected coated steel disk instead of the magnets in the rewards. This will protect any credit cards when using your phone or other devices that might be magnet sensitive.
Tablets, laptops, phones are meant to be mobile, yet the stands that I have come across just didn't offer that mobility. I didn't want to be stuck in one position or place.
We started our first Kickstarter project with the Tribunga, but I knew I could create something more minimal. I ended up creating 4 new designs out of it. Now it's more than a stand; it's also a camera holder and stabilizer for photographers and film makers.
Compatible with Android, Apple and Windows.
Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets
Neodymium rare earth magnets comprise the attachment system. They are strong enough to secure your device while simultaneously allowing you to detach it from the stand with ease.
Treebunga and Sungabunga now compatible with hard-drive laptops Windows, Apple and Android.
If you're wondering if neodymium magnets will affect your flash device, you have nothing to worry about. "There's nothing magnetic in flash memory, so [a magnet] won't do anything,"-pc world (http://www.pcworld.com/article/116572/busting_the_biggest_pc_myths.html)
To create a strong product we precision machined high grade aluminum. This also allowed us to streamline the manufacturing which allows us to have a lower upfront cost. No expensive molds are required, thus we are able to produce batch volumes without any molds. This in turn has allowed us a lower pledge goal which will give backers more confidence that we will reach the pledge goals and that they will a Bungajungle product.
- Cutting edge patent pending magnetic shielding technology installed in the Sungabunga and Treebunga
- The Sungabunga is the first ever biflex bipod and the Treebunga is the first ever triflex bipod.
- The simple and minimal designs are revolutionary.
- They are completely original and by bringing together the right flexibilty and geometrics they offer unparalleled versatility.
- The Ungabunga is the smallest most minimal mount in the world.
- The Dundabuga is the sleekest and most versatile mount ever.
We use innovative 3M VHB tape to ensure your magnets stay in place. To safely remove the tape, swab rubbing alcohol between the device and tape and the bond will dissolve and easily come off residue free.
Ananda Svarupa Das is the founder of Bungajungle. He first started with the launch of Tribunga, and now with the help of his team has improved upon the designs. Now Bungajungle has teamed up with experienced design engineer Dan Martinez and market specialist Karni Kahlon. Dan brings 25 years of taking a design from concept to market. He has lined up our manufacturing partners and set up a storage and fulfillment facility to make sure your rewards are fulfilled. Karni is our marketing and manufacturing specialist. For twenty years he has owned several companies where his passion has been to bring 100 percent customer satisfaction. His large network and drive has allowed us to market test the Bungajungle designs to assure a solid product comes to market.
Risks and challenges
Although we have created prototype that exceeded our expectations and the first launch prototype was a great working product, we knew that we wanted to really have the latest technology to provide the greatest benefit to the end users. The addition of neodymium magnets and a multi-device attachment system helped us to be on the cutting edge. Having all these changes we realized there would be challenges.
We wanted to minimize risks so we thought about easing the manufacturing process. For Bungajungle sourcing quality parts, with zero harsh labor inputs can give a real edge on producing a product of premium quality. This required us to look at using time tested assembly processes that would give durability to the products. We also have developed a team that's focused on quality assurance and intend to carry constant quality control audits.
There may be other challenges that we may come across, and we pledge communicate to everyone on all the happenings. We will also add new photos and videos of the innumerable uses of the Bungajungle products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
For the Ungabunga, how does that go onto the car? Does it have to touch some type of metal or has a sticky end to it?
The end of it has 3M VHB tape that stick to any flat surface.
The 3M tape is not reusable. If you need more tape we can send it to you for a minimal charge, and they also offer it at some hardware stores.
Yes, the Treebunga and the Sungabunga can support MacPro Retina 15". The 3M dual lock system allows attachment of laptops even if they are not compatible with magnets. Even larger laptops up to 8 pounds.
If you apply rubbing alcohol, that will dissolve the bond. Many reputable companies, like GoPro and Steelie(kickstarter project) use the 3M VHB tape without any major issue. Also, I haven't had any issues as I have attached it to ipads, phones, laptops and removed it easily.
To pledge for multiple rewards, simply add the totals together for all rewards you would like to participate in, increase your pledge to cover all rewards you wish to back. When the project ends, you will be sent a survey, simply list the reward levels and quantity you pledged for.
Multiple Rewards backers can receive a pledge softener off their second (and each subsequent) product of choice. Take $5 off the Ungabunga or Dundabunga pledges, and $10 off for Sungabunga or Treebunga. This does not apply to the early bird rewards as they are already heavily softened. Multiple rewards International backers can also take off $10 shipping for any reward after the first. Shipping for US backers is included.
I have used many in car systems for my iPhone and all of them have failed. Does temperature affect the performance of the magnet or the 3M tape?
As for temperature affecting the magnet and the 3M tape; Neodymium magnets magnet can go to temperatures of -138 C (-216 F) to 230 C (446 F) degrees and 3M tape is routinely subjected to temperatures of -54 C (-65.2 F) to 66 C (150.8 F).
