About this project

The problem

The sleek look and feel of the new iPhone 6 has created a rebirth of the iPhone skin. Although, most iPhone skins have three main problems:

We decided to create MagSkin, a magnetic skin featuring a carbon fiber design for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

MagSkin adds a sleek protective layer without being too bulky or cumbersome. MagSkin features a carbon fiber design with vibrant and dimensional colors. MagSkin also features magnetic functionality with over 1000 daily uses! MagSkin is 100% safe because the magnet force has no effect on the iPhone’s flash memory (i.e. patent pending).

The new MagSkin for the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus has the carbon fiber color design built directly into the magnet rather than gluing the skin to the magnet. The skin will never separate from the magnet giving you the same quality look and feel from the first time you apply.

Colors Available:

The following colors are available for both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

  • Carbon Fiber Black
  • Carbon Fiber Red
  • Carbon Fiber Blue
  • Carbon Fiber Silver
  • Carbon Fiber Orange
  • Carbon Fiber Pink

Will the magnet damage my iPhone?

No, because the iPhone uses flash memory it will not cause damage to the phone. The testing showed no damage or functionality change to the devices.

Will MagSkin leave a sticky adhesive residue on my iPhone?

No, MagSkin is made with a high quality no-stick adhesive. This means when you peel off MagSkin, your iPhone will be as sleek and shinny as when you purchased.

Here are some uses for MagSkin:

Day 1-7: Finalize user acceptance testing for original samples

Day 7-14: Negotiate manufacturer agreement and price points 

Day 14-21: Manufacturing of MagSkins!

Day 21-31: Receive MagSkins and ship to all backers 

 Wait, there is more...

If we reach our stretch goal of $8,000, we will include a free MagDock with every MagSkin shipped!!! What is a MagDock you ask? MagDock is a magnetic docking station to use MagSkin on non-metal surfaces. Please see video below:

The idea for MagSkin was born in Lincoln, NE by an electrical engineer, Daniel Weyer. Daniel's wife and three kids challenged him to create cool iPhone skin that, like our iPhone, could be functional/versatile in a metal dominated world.

Daniel partnered with the Comma Chargers Team (www.commachargers.com) to create and redesigned the popular skin for the iPhone 6 while improving based around the feedback from all of the fans. Thank you all so much!

Risks and challenges

The user acceptance and quality testing could delay the project an additional 2 weeks. We want to ensure we are delivering the best quality product that meets our standards.
