About this project
Ultimate in hands free electronic device use, anytime, anywhere.
Tablets, laptops, phones are meant to be mobile and stands that I have come across just didn't offer that. I didn't want to be stuck in one postion or place. That is the inspiration for this product.
The patent pending Tribunga is the first ever triflex bi-pod. The triflex bi-pod extension system offers an intuitive experience in hands free electronic device use, which means your not restricted to one position while in use, the stand moves with you. Its bi-pod base allows for stability across various footings and platforms making it adaptable in any situation.
Polymer Ball and Socket Triflex System
The Tribunga's polymer ball and socket system joins to make triple flexible extensions which allows for the perfect obedience to hold various devices including the use of laptop computers. It is very light weight and makes the perfect travel companion for hands free use where ever you go
Vacuum and micro suction combined
This is also a very unique suction cup because it uses the traditional vacuum and a state of the art micro-suction simultaneously. This gives it superior hold strength while keeping the size of the suction cup down. The outer housing was ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the palm of any hand comfortably. The detachable suction cup allows Tribunga to seamlessly turn into a handle and snap desk stand, combining several accessories into one compact, lightweight powerful stand.
Why your pledges?
Tooling and molds are expensive and we need your support. Only volume production can allow us to bring it to you at the right price.
To get to the next stage of production we will need molds, components and factory time.
- Injection Molds
- Springs, aluminum rod, micro suction silicon for the suction system
- Tooling, manufacturing and assembly
- Shipping and packaging
Assembled in the USA.
Holding to Tribunga's vision, all Tribungas will be assembled and packaged in the United States.
Risks and challenges
Challenges and Risks
The challenges have been stepping stones in the improvement of this project. We've gone through 5 different designs and 3 prototypes. All along the way my manufacturing partner has been very supportive in making the project a success. They have the capability and resources to full fill almost any size an order and are ready to go. We will keep the Kickstarter community informed of all updates as Tribunga is manufactured.

How does it attach to the iPad/macbook -- it is not clear to me: is it suction or a sticky substance
It is both vacuum suction and micro suction, a sort of sticky substance, without the residue.
The weight it can support is determined by how it is setup. It is the curves that allow it to bear weight, so depending on how you set it up you would could bear large laptops if set up as a table. For other applications such as upside down viewing, and upright use tablets and lighter laptops will work best. As long as the curve setup is there it will have a strong hold, and the suction cup works solid as long you have a smooth surface.
It would hold well for dslr cameras and camcorders. Yes, a camera attachment can be added as an attachment pretty simply. I will keep you updated as that can be pretty easily accomplished.
