The SideWinder is designed to give you back counter top or floor space and eliminate unsightly cable mess. It is an extension of your existing wall outlet. When plugged in and installed, the wall plate and SideWinder create a channel to wrap your cables around. The SideWinder can be used to contain several types of cables such as recharging cables, lamps cords, internet radios, and landlines phones.
The SideWinder is designed for grounding, and will be ETL (similar to UL) approved by the time we ship. ETL is a certification mark indicating that the product has been tested and has met the requirements for U.S. and Canadian safety standards. It is made of highly durable materials and has been designed and engineered to withstand typical household abuse.
Like many of you, we aspire to share our creations with the larger design community. We often find the behind the scenes experience just as interesting, if not more so, than the design itself. We have decided to document our experience write a book covering the details. The story will include a fully functioning product sample and describe the steps we took, challenges we overcame, and how our passion and motivation resulted in the realization of our dream. We hope this true story, written from the author’s point of view, not only inspires other creative minds to pursue their ideas but educates them on how to approach a product design project and the steps necessary to make it real.
The story is broken out into three main sections: Discovery – Design – Delivery Aspiring creatives will learn the design way of thinking and how to use it to foster their own ideas into real products. The story includes the actual product described in the book. It is fully functional and intended to be used as a tangible reference to help grasp design concepts.
The unique aspect to this story is that YOU help to write the final chapter. Your pre-order will fund the documentary and production of the SideWinder and in return gives you the full story + a fully functioning product delivered to your doorstep.
