About this project

Features:

iWoody is a remarkable version of the USB wall charger. The wall charger features a water-transfer wood design different from the boring single-color designs on the market today. The charger mixes vintage, classic, and style with a modern touch. The charger works with any USB iPhone, USB, or mini USB (i.e. found with most Android devices) cables.

Inspiration:

The product was designed as declaration to my father, a lifelong inventor, entrepreneur, and production owner in the wood business since 1961. He owned and operated a lumber mill in Philadelphia and later started his own packaged firewood business that was featured in over 70 supermarkets in PA, NJ, and DE. Our product was inspired and designed to honor him as he is currently fighting lung disease.

Design Progress:  

After the design inspiration, we put forth laminate, hardwood, and sketch designs to produce in collaboration with our manufacturer; the first prototype. After two minor adjustments with the wood grain design work, we had our first shell manufactured and ready for a casing. The actual grain design is a combination of cherry, maple, and oak with a modern touch.

Funding:

We need additional funding for purchasing a larger order as well as continuing to design supplemental products to make the iWoody look, feel, and brand. We are so thankful to have this opportunity to bring a product to the market that is both innovative and honors my good ol’ dad.

Timeline:

From the project close, we would need 2-4 weeks to finalize the design and have the manufacturing done and shipped to our home office. From there, we will need 1-2 weeks to ship out all wall chargers to our backers. We will work as quickly as possible to get this product to our loyal and supportive backers. Today, we have a trustworthy manufacturer we have been working with for just under 2 years.  We are so appreciative to have potential enthusiasts to support our dream in bringing this product to market.

About Us:

Brett and Steven are entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals and old friends committed to product design and innovation for the past 16 years.
