The biggest advantage of our stand is its small footprint, functionality and low cost. Scööb is made out of a thin 0.5 mm polypropylene plastic sheet, and unfolded, can fit in any tablet sleeve, back pocket, or in a regular mail envelope.

OUR TEAM

 

 This is our family project. A father + daughters collaboration. I am (Jaroslav) responsible for the idea and design. My daughter, Uli, did the technical stuff and Olivia orchestrated the presentation.

Help kids in Africa to get better education.

Dear Friends,

We want to turn our campaign into the worldwide social project. To raise the money for production using crowdfunding on Kickstarter from around the world and in return to donate 250 stands to the school in Kenya.

For this we created a new Reward:

One (1) Scööb in any of the designs offered (you will be asked before we ship) + we will donate One (1) Scööb in plain frosted white plastic color to the school in Kenya.

Embakasi Garrison Primary School in Nairobi, at the launch of the ‘Power of mLearning in Kenya’ pilot project, recently got a donation of 250 tablets to Standard 7 and 8 pupils. if the pilot project goes well, it expected to be rolled out countrywide to cover other public primary schools in Kenya.

Risks and challenges

Where we are now and what else we need to overcome?
Actually we are almost there.
Scööb design is finalized. Many prototypes has been built and tested for about a year. Provisional patent filled in USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office)

We found manufacturer who can produce superb quality product. The manufacturing and shipping cost is established.
As with any project, there may be some unforeseen problem that arises but we have done as much research and preliminary planning as possible to eliminate the obvious challenges.

As soon as our project will get pledged funds we will send our order to manufacturer and the first shipment we can expect in September.
