We're sending another Friday update to give you the latest information about the iPhone 5 adapters, MicroUSB foam and a few other items.
Fuse Chicken is headed to the Consumer Electronics Show January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you're at CES, please stop by our booth in Eureka Park of the Venetian. We may just have some new product concepts to show you!
The dies have been produced and the foam has been die-cut. These are being shipped from the factory today. Due to the US holiday next week, we expect to have them delivered to our office the last week of November and ship them out to all of you who ordered from the website the first week of December.
If you would like to order a set, we are keeping the backer-only ordering page available for a few more days here.
iPhone 5 Adapters
We received the first samples from the production molds today. While they were accidentally molded in black, instead of white, we are primarily concerned with approving the fit. We're pleased to let you know that the samples passed testing perfectly and have been approved for production pending a review of the correct color to match the white Une Bobine connector.
We hope to have a final production schedule in the next few days. However, we are pushing the factory so that we can have these shipped to you during the first week of December.
The photos below show how it works and attaches in both portrait and landscape. Having used the prototypes since the end of September, I can say that these work very well. While the lightning connector is small, it is a tight fit with the phone. This allows it to hold very well in both positions.
If you would still like to order one, we are keeping the backer-only ordering page available for a few more days here.
We couldn't resist a test with the iPad Mini. As you can see in the next photo, Une Bobine with the adapter, can hold iPad Mini. It will only hold in Portrait mode and you will need to take more care in positioning, keeping a lower height from the table.
Many of you have asked where you can purchase additional Une Bobines. We'd like to take this opportunity to not only send you a list of our current worldwide retailers, but also to thank them for partnering with us for Une Bobine.
Thanks Kickstarters and have a great weekend,
