Update #4

Quick video demo and progress report

Here's a quick video shot with my iPhone to show how easy it is to put Smarter Stand in various positions. It won't win the Sundance Festival but hopefully will answer some of the questions some of you have been asking. :-)

Don't forget that a 3d clip is offered FREE if you like the project on Facebook. It only takes a second so don't miss the opportunity to get third clip with your Smarter Stand!

I'm off for the week-end (see photo attached from the train) after a long week of working hard on my Smarter Stand project.

I'm happy to report that:

  • I've evaluated several manufacturers and figured out who will manufacture the Smarter Stand. Definitely not the cheapest but very smart and proactive. The quality will be top notch.
  • With this new partner, we've figured out the exact design, material and ideal size for the non-slip pad and are looking into high-end finishes for the clips.
  • I've redesigned a slightly modified version of the clips that should fit the Smart Case as well as the Smart Cover perfectly (will test next week)
  • I've communicated with several distributors around the world who want to carry the Smarter Stand. If you are a distributor, please do get in touch. I've got great deals for you and am in the process of designing a great looking POP stand.

So lots of progress on many fronts! Thank you for all your help spreading the word about the Smarter Stand to your friends. We've already hit our funding goal but the more successful this project is, the faster I'll be able to get the product in your hands (with enough quantity ordered I can run a big production batch sooner).
