Why AkouStand?

Let’s face it, our world revolves around technology. Whether used for work, entertainment, advice, navigation, or learning, we use technology in almost every aspect of our lives. This means you should be optimizing your experience the most you can, both for convenience and enjoyment. Nothing is more frustrating than having to hold your cell phone in bed while you watch videos, having to continually pick-up your cell phone while you’re watching video tutorials in the middle of a project, or try to let your 2-year-old watch videos without dropping the device.

The AkouStand can be used to amplify shallow sounds while staying connected to a charging cable. It can also be used to watch videos hands-free. This artistic take on the classic design combines durable ABS and polycarbonate with a modern twist. 

Use the AkouStand at your study, bedroom, living room, kitchen, patio, bathroom, office, airplane, hotel room, and even the gym. You will get beautiful, amplified sounds for your listening and viewing pleasure. You can easily lift the phone even with charging cables connected when you get a call and it’s especially great for overnight charging as the sound disbursement will give you a loud alarm sound in the morning.

  • FLAWLESS SOUND AMPLIFICATION: As technology improved, so have speakers in most mobile devices. However, we at BLINKKS have yet to be wowed by any of their sound quality, which is why we created the AkouStand. When vertically mounted, the sound from the speaker on the bottom of your smart device will be amplified, producing a richer, clearer and a more natural sound. The design of the AkouStand distributes sound waves efficiently for a great listening experience. 
  • A CONVENIENT HANDS-FREE VIEWING EXPERIENCE: With more and more people using their tablets and mobile devices to watch videos and TV, there is a high demand for tablet stands. With this easy-to-use AkouStand that allows both horizontal and vertical viewing, you can watch your shows in either direction, from the comfort of your bed, nightstand, or desk.   
  • EASY, SAFE CHARGING: The AkouStand will accommodate your charging needs by simply running the charging cable through the stand. This keeps your cables free from the stand and allows for you to take your phone in and out of the stand, hassle-free. 
  • SLEEK AND STYLISH: With vibrant and beautiful colors, the AkouStand is not only universally functional for many types of devices, it’s simply stunning. Each AkouStand is made of durable ABS and polycarbonate plastic and its style is sleek, modern, and adds “pop” to any room. Whether you want to add color to your kid’s bedroom or modernize your office, the AkouStand is for you.
  • VERSATILITY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS: The AkouStand is particularly nice if you travel often or have kids...or if you travel often with kids. Sturdy and lightweight, this stand is great for those on the go. You can throw it in your bag for easy access when you need it and where you need it. Use it in the office for work or in the kitchen to follow recipes as you cook. It’s perfect for a nursery or a romantic dinner for ideal ambiance music.

AkouStand Comes in a Variety of Colors! 

Disclaimer: The sound quality improves when the speaker of the cell phone is in the stand vertically. You can still view videos in horizontal way, though. The AkouStand does not actually charge the mobile device but it is designed to run a cable through it and lift a phone with convenience. It may hold cell phones and tablets with cover up to around 0.5” of total thickness. Final colors of the AkouStand may be different than the ones shown here and colors on screen and products may not match exactly due to different color models and perception.

Risks and challenges

We are at the stage of experimenting with some prototypes and moving into mass production. Even though we are almost at mass manufacturing stage, we may have some delays in defining fine details of the product to be delivered to make it perfectly fit for its purpose.
