About

                           DONT YOU JUST HATE THIS.... WE DO

   OUR MISSION

PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU.

About two year ago we got a great idea, let´s make a product that prevents you from dropping your iPhone. We got so tiered of wrecking our beloved iPhones all the time due to slips and mishaps.

SO INSTEAD OF JUST TALKING ABOUT IT WE DID SOMETHING. 
Our friend helped us to create a working crude model of an adapter that fits into the iPhone´s plug where the charger goes.

We got really excited and put our hard earned money in make this product a reality. About six months later we have the product in hand and we went to market with our model with a simple nylon lanyard attacHed to the adapter.

To our surprise people where skeptical
"Will the adapter hold my iPhone or will it fall out if I run or excersise ?"

So we had the adapter tested in a lab and got great results 
YES it will hold up to 18 kg of turque securely enough to make put the skeptics at ease.

Unfortunately our troubles weren´t over.

People wanted a more exclusive lanyard than our nylon so we began searching for cool leather lanyards to go with our adapter.

We found some really cool designers that created great models of leather lanyards.

THANK YOU APPLE
Then Apple decided to launch the iPhone 5 model with a new type of plug so we went back to the drawing board. :-(

So we got our engineers to make the blueprint for a solution that works with the iPhone 5.

So we got a great product for all iPhone 3+4 and iPod users but we DO SO MUCH want to help iPhone 5 users as well.

THIS IS WHERE YOU PLAY A PART IN THE STORY
We need your support to make the model for the iPhone 5 model and to create more cool lanyards to keep your iPhone safe.

HONESTLY WE NEED $ 10.000 TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
We hope to reach our plegde goal of $ 10.000 so we can set-up the production for the iPhone 5 version and activate our marketing plan that ensure that all iPhone owners (Also you lucky guys with iPhone 5) will be aware that the ROCK STRING IS HERE AND BROKEN IPHONE A THING OF THE PAST...

NO MORE OF THIS
NO MORE OF THIS

WHAT DO WE NEED THE MONEY FOR ?
We need the 10.000 for tooling and packaging of the iPhone 5 model and for setting up a production that can go global.

WHY ONLY $ 10.000 ?
Sure we would love a backing of more that $ 10.000 but we are investing lot of your own money in this project and the 10K will enable us to take the project to the next level.

Up till launch of our Kickstarter project we will design new strings and work diligent for a solution for the iPhone 5. Shown below is the the blueprint for the iPhone 5 solution. As soon as our pledge goal is met we will start the production of the iPhone solution.

Quality is at the essence. 

From the beginning we wanted to create a product that oozed quality that will go with a any type of wear whether it will be formal business wear or leisure. 

WORKS FOR IPOD TOO

100% safe hold of your precious iPhone
We have tested it for endurance and ability to hold the iPhone. Our tests shows that the docking device can hold up till 180,72 newton the equivalent of 18,72 kilo (41,18 Lbs) so it sure to say that the device can hold the iPhone under any conditions. 

Testing in the lab.

Our first demo collection is handmade and have that Scandinavian look to it.  But we would like to have other lines that connects with our cultures as well.

We even tested it under extreme conditions with a mountain climber that has climbed the Mount Everest.

See the climber test below

Looks cool in leather - dosen´t it..

New technology
We have a prototype that works for iPhone 3/4 but we want to take the technology further and make a docking device that fits the newly released iPhone 5 and for other phones. We wish to create lots of different styles and colors to fit any  individual style.

Furthermore we want to make a high-end line complete with precious metals and diamonds for the crowd that just want that bling. 

Real leather great quality

Display your own style

From the beginning we wanted to create a product that reflects your personal style so we hired a Danish designer to create beautiful real leather lanyards to support the docking device. We only use the best material and since the lanyard will have direct connection to the skin we have make sure that people with allergies also can use the Rock String without rashes. We want to introduce a wide collection to fit all different tastes.

Pricing
The Rock String shall be available for everybody so we want to introduce the basic model at prices starting from $32 It is important for us to reach a global market since the iPhone propably is one of the most sold and widely distributed products in history. So we also need funding to set up distribution as well as production facilities.

Manufacturing plan & Timeline
We have made the prototype for the Rock String and as soon as we hopefully get the needed funding we will start to develop the new docking device for iPhone 5 as well as new exciting design lines to fit any needs out there.

On the business end we will set-up business shop in the US and in Europe for more global presents and easier worldwide distribution.

With your support we are planning for all this to happen in the 1st quarter 2013 and hope to have the first commercialized Rock Strings in stores in the beginning of 2013. 

WE NEED YOU
Help us make this happen since we are a small dedicated team and we have the right connections but need some start funding to put this great product on the world market. 

We thanks Kickstarter for even making this introduction possible and we hope for your support.

We thank you in advance

Best regards

Risks and challenges

Risk assessment for the Rock String project.

We are dealing with a very low risk factor regarding the Rock String project.

Of course there are some issues what if we get hit by a truck or something awful but besides that we think that we have cover all risks.

Regarding manufacturing problems we have everthing in place. We have a partner that can produce the adapter for the Rock String. He of course needs some cash for setting up the production line, but all contracts are in place.

The Adapter and the leather lanyard are already tested for durability and strength so no risk there either.

Is there some other potential issue you're wondering about?
If you're wondering, others probably are, too! We'd appreciate it if you'd email it to us at morten@zendu.dk right now and I'll personally make sure it gets answered for you.
