About

 The GoGo Grip Story

GoGo Grip emerged from a “scratch my own itch” need of the inventor, Kyle Hilla, creator of CollabraCam, a social video production app for iOS. “As a visual designer, a coworking space is a difficult proposition without the added productivity of an external monitor,” said Hilla. The thought of lugging a monitor around was definitely unappealing, but the desire for the community, camaraderie and collaboration of coworking provided the spark for Hilla’s simple, ingenious solution to take advantage of the existing VESA mount to secure a handle to a monitor. From there he created CAD drawings, started prototyping and made connections at GR Makers, a local maker space, to help bring the product to life. 

After showing some of the prototypes around for feedback, the most critical aspect wasn't even about the handle... it was about protecting the screen. That was when I knew I had to develop a companion product and started researching Monitor and HDTV dimensions. Two sizes were necessary to cover the most popular sizes of current models, one for 23.6-24" monitors and 24" HDTVs and the other for 27" monitors and 28-29" HDTVs. It was a challenge to create universal display covers. There are 2+ inch variances from the smallest to the largest dimensions in both size class. Stands are in different spots... monitors are mostly out of the back while HDTVs are mostly out of the bottom edge. I believe we have found a great solution that protects a wide variety of displays, looks good, and serves its protective purpose.

Manufacturing

Over the past several months I have worked with two manufacturers to prototype and prepare GoGo Grip and GoGo Guard for the Kickstarter production run with products made not just in the USA, but local to West Michigan. Having iterated and improved the prototype of the GoGo Grip several times, we now have our final design and the tooling is ordered to ensure consistent quality and precision. The GoGo Guard prototype is impressive and near final, but the design may be tweaked slightly. It was created with white elastic to show how it is stitched, but when it goes into production it will be all black. Both the GoGo Grip and GoGo Guard will be ready to go into production before the close of the campaign.

Not Just for Work...

GoGo Grip was designed with coworking professionals in mind, but it's not just for people who work hard… It’s also great for people who play hard! Gamers can easily take their monitor and rig to a friend’s house, LAN party or eSports tournament to get their game on. Sports fans can bring their TV to the tailgate to stay updated on all the games or watch the home team out on the deck while playing cornhole in the yard.

Risks and challenges

I have worked hard to mitigate the risks and challenges involved with this project as much as possible. With any project there is the potential for unforeseen circumstances to cause a delay, but as it stands I have verbal confirmations from my manufacturers that there will not be any production issues with delivering rewards in December.

I have researched packaging and shipping options and I am planning to fulfill reward shipments with the help of family... but if the campaign is wildly successful, I will seek out and employ a fulfillment service to ensure that rewards are shipped with plenty of time to wrap if you plan to give GoGo Grip as a gift this holiday season.
