About this project
HOW IT ALL STARTED
About a few month ago I bought my new iPod and every time I put my headphones and charger in my pocket/ bag, they always got all tangled up. I look in the market to see if there was a solution to this problem but, there wasn't anything that was simple to use and universal for all your cables. Then I realized that I needed to create a new solution that could be both universal for Headphones/Chargers/Others cables and cool looking.
Then I started sketching and drawing how this thing was going to look like. As a result, Loop was born, a new way to manage and store your cables is really easy to use and useful to have.In my office creating the early prototypes.
LOOP has gone a long way and it has improved with every prototype. We have the finals designs ready for manufacturing. With your help we can start mass production and bring LOOP to you.
WHAT'S LOOP ?
LOOP, is a cable organizer design so that it is always with you when you need it. LOOP its perfect for anyone that loves to keep their HEADPHONES/CHARGERS/CABLES organized and different from everyone else's. It is the solution to tangle mess that everyone has been waiting for.
!!DO MORE WITH LOOP!!
LOOP will work with most chargers/headphones/cables in the market. It is very flexible and durable, it can organize any mess caused by your cables. It will always work no matter what!!!!
COLORS AND MATERIALS
Loop will be made of a durable and flexible PVC plastic material. PVC is a really strong and durable plastic, used in many other product like "iPhone cases". Rubberized PVC means that is has a grippy exterior so the Loop can have a better grip over your cables. It will come in six colors: kickstarter green, red, light blue, navy blue, white, and black.
LOOP is going to be sold as a set of two, one for your headphones and the other for your charger or other device. In addition, you can manage your pledge to get a specific color or quantity.
MANUFACTURING AND PROTOTYPES
The Loops you see in this video are Prototypes that were design in my office, were the first prototypes were made. I have manufactured some early prototypes to test Loop. I have a manufacturer that its ready to work in the molds and the final design . I have made some slight modifications into the new designs that includes: brand of the product, measurements size, shape and some other alterations.
Many of the components will be sourced overseas- this is inevitable as there are no longer manufacturers in the USA that make these products. However, we do plan to manufacture the product housing, and assemble the product, here in the USA. In fact, if we vastly exceed our funding goal, it may be possible for us to perform the assembly in-house.
MID August - Kickstarter ends/receive funding
EARLY September- Production started and finished
EARLY September- Finalize and produce packaging
MID-LATE September - Assembly, fulfillment, and shipping
If this goal is reached, every backer who contributes at a LOOP by pledging $10 or more will receive ONE LOOP in the most popular color voted on. You have the opportunity to vote on your favorite 6 of the LOOP colors shown above, and if we meet this stretch goal, our most popular color at the time that we meet this goal will be revealed for all!
WHY I NEED YOUR BACKING
This fundraiser is intended to provide the investment capital necessary to produce an initial production run of Loop. In order to do so, there are several major initial expenditures that I must incur; Some of which include: Re-engineering for injection mold manufacture, Production scale tooling costs and Packaging Cost. Additionally, I must budget for our unit production costs and shipping costs. At the funding goal, I will have enough capital to manufacture a minimum order quantity. With your help we can bring this amazing product to the market and change the way people use and manage their cables.

Risks and challenges
There are risks and challenges involved in any venture and I'm prepared to tackle them. I'm committed to customer satisfaction and producing quality necessities that will change the way you use your mobile devices.
LOOP is My First Kickstarter project. The potential obstacles I face are production and supply. I produce the pieces for LOOPS over seas and then is assembled in the US, the reason why is because it is the only way in which the product can be made cheaply enough to be affordable to everyone. Production delays will not be a problem since the LOOP has already gone into the final design face.
LOOP production entails many variables and as a result shipments might be delayed. I'll prepare for this supply delay by forecasting demand and staying in constant contact with our supplier. Orders will be placed early enough to ensure delivery in time to fulfill orders.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
