PodClip for the Apple AirPods

$1,927

When Apple CEO Tim Cook first showcased AirPods at the end of the year, we were very excited to get our hands on a set as quickly as possible. With the expected curves and form from the designers at Apple, the AirPods have become a big hit with over 20 million units expected to ship just this year. As promised, these little gadgets have delivered huge sound and unexpected levels of convenience and integration, but there is one thing lacking...a good way to carry them. The AirPods case is about three times as thick as the iPhone, which makes putting it in your pocket a little awkward, yet it's small enough that it's easy to misplace in your purse or drop between your car seats during that critical moment when the call from your boss is coming through.

We have a solution that is sure to please even the most die hard Apple fan. A holder for your AirPods case that is precision cut from one piece of solid billet aluminum using CAD design and CNC machines. Our PodClips are designed to enhance the style and shape of the AirPods case through minimalist design and form. The PodClip holder gently wraps around the AirPods case providing a firm and safe way to keep your AirPods in a convenient location. No moving parts. Nothing that can break. One simple and elegant piece of billet aluminum that will keep your high priced earpieces in a safe place.

The PodClip can be used on the belt, in the pocket, on a purse, or anywhere else you need to keep your AirPods. We've used it in the car, on the plane, and even clipped on a bike! So many options with a one piece aluminum clip that can be adjusted as needed. Make it tighter or expand the gap with a gentle squeeze.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have completed the preliminary design work and CAD drawings. Prototypes have been created and extensively tested. Time has been reserved on a CNC machine and we now need your assistance to pay for machine time and materials. Please help us get this product across the goal line and into the hands of Apple AirPods users.
