About this project
Hi and thank you for visiting our kickstarter page!
The Hipoflex™ is an accessory for the iPhone 4 to take pictures and record videos in a more natural position. It simply snaps onto the iPhone in either portrait or landscape mode. You can also use the Hipoflex™ as a stand for hands-free watching or recording videos, FaceTiming, surfing the web…etc
The Hipoflex™ can be used to:
- take pictures and videos while holding the iPhone 4 in the same position you hold it when texting
- take candid shots
- record a lecture, performance or presentation when used as a stand: no shaking and no tripod!
- prop up your iPhone 4 to watch a movie, use FaceTime or do some work
We have created a great product that we have been using for a while now. We love our product and its many functionalities – we’ve also received great feedback from family and friends. Now we want to share it with the world and we know you’ll love using it too.
We need YOUR help!
We managed to design and build and prototypes on our own, and we now want to share our creation with you. The next step, manufacturing, requires some initial investments. The Hipoflex™ will be made through a process called injection molding. This demands very precise and expensive molds. Your pledge is essentially a pre-order and will help us cover the costs of the molds and of actually making the Hipoflex™.
The Hipoflex™ uses mirrors to redirect light onto the iPhone camera lens. For this reason, we also need to develop an iPhone app that will show your picture or video the right way up. We currently have a bare bones version of the app but it needs to be further developed so you can enjoy the Hipoflex™ without a hitch!
The app will be available for free on iTunes once completed (subject to Apple approval).
The Hipoflex™ will be made out of a recyclable hard rubber: it has some antiskid properties so your iPhone won’t move when you use the Hipoflex™ as a stand and it will securely attach to the iPhone.
The idea for the Hipoflex™ was born on a trip to Frankfurt, Germany, we took last year. Navid has been an iPhone fan since its introduction and loves its versatility. He’s a photographer and is always looking for new ways to point his photo lens. We wanted to create an accessory that lets you shoot while holding the iPhone the same way you hold it when text-messaging or surfing the web. It seemed so much more convenient than holding the iPhone up in the air right in front of you!
