Are Magnets Safe Around Tablets?

Check out our video below demonstrating an iPad with The StandOut placed on the screen. Magnets are safe around tablets because tablets use solid state storage and LCD displays. Magnets do not damage these components. This is why we designed The StandOut with magnets to increase the functionality of your tablet case. The StandOut's magnetic attachment is easily removable, so it's there when you need it, and gone when you don't... without ever getting in your way.

Our Story:

We love the iPad. It is a transforming invention that has reshaped mobile computing. After years of switching between the “newest” tablet cases, purchasing several over the life of each tablet costing over $100, we decided that it was time for a change. A change to a new durable case, that lasts. A change with a goal to transform the way we interact with our devices. A transformation into a new era of tablet computing that does not detract from the natural beauty of our devices or add unnecessary bulkiness. We focused on achieving these goals by adding more functionality to tablets than ever imagined before. To accomplish this, we did something a bit different. And here begins our journey with The StandOut...

John began building The StandOut over 8 months ago. With his strong engineering background, he set out to create an iPad case that is easy to use and provides many functions, including a secure handle and stand. With each prototype iteration, John tweaked the design of The StandOut handle with a goal to ensure a comfortable fit for all hand sizes. This was when he arrived at the engineering solution, coined Diminishing Clearance: a gradually decreasing angle on the handle that securely fits all sizes of hands. This was a breakthrough because now, customers with hands sizes ranging from small to large, can all securely grasp their tablets with the StandOut piece. John focused on incorporating his new handle invention into a stand with zero dead points among all angles in both portrait and landscape modes. Meaning, The StandOut must not tip or flop over, no matter what angle it is set it up to. This was achieved by carefully engineering the length of the handle to securely prop up your tablet at all viewing angles. The carefully designed handle also functions as a fulcrum point to easily remove The StandOut piece. Using your fingers as a lever, The StandOut is easily removable so it's there when you need it, and gone when you don't. 

After completing the initial design concepts, John focused on adding the ability for you to fully customize your case. He then incorporated the newest business technologies such as QR Codes that function as business cards, and high quality logo printing right on the back of your tablet case. After over 10 prototypes, and months of hard work to achieve perfection, John and The StandOut team are excited to release The StandOut to market through Kickstarter!

So Why StandOut? Problems worth solving:

Tablet cases are stuck in an age of a one size fits all approach. We recognize that interacting with tablets is a personal experience that varies between customers. For example, many tablet stands require users to interact with their devices at a few less than optimum viewing angles. Interacting with your tablet at some preset angle decided by the manufacturer simply does not work - rays of sunlight and glaring images detract from images displayed on the screen and undermine the natural beauty of the display. Today, we demand that our cases adjust to the many unique uses we encounter on a daily basis. A great tablet case must adapt to its surroundings. Whether it’s traveling on an airplane, watching Netflix in bed, or responding to emails while relaxing on the couch… current cases on the market simply do not work. 

Worry no more; The StandOut does it all, and more! Every StandOut includes a sliding magnetic stand that unlocks any angle in portrait and landscape modes. With just a single touch, you can automatically adjust The StandOut to a perfect viewing angle. It’s that easy! The same stand also functions as an adjustable handle that provides you a secure grip on your tablet, even while you’re on-the-go. Say “goodbye” to yesterdays struggle of finding a comfortable way to hold your tablet.

Kickstarters, pledge today to increase your comfort and satisfaction with The StandOut. Never again will you have to hold your tablet by awkwardly grabbing the edge. We believe that once you hold The StandOut, you’ll never want to go back to your old case again!

Risks and challenges

We secured our supply chain prior to launching our Kickstarter campaign to ensure that supply chain risks are minimized. One potential risk is with regards to lead times from our suppliers. Some components for The StandOut are manufactured in China, while others are purchased or made in the United States. For components from China, our factories quote lead times of 7 days or less. Shipping time is only 1 week by air, so we will pay extra for that option if needed to ensure that your product is delivered on-time. If a delay in transportation, customs or delivery occurs, we have included 2+ weeks of time cushion to ensure we deliver your rewards on-time.

Another potential challenge could occur due to minor discrepancies in image color between the images you send us, and the images printed on your case and handle. Our printing methods may result in very minor color variations that are usually not noticeable.
