Missed out on the campaign?
The original MiStand received some great reviews and mentions:
We didn't want to change things just for the sake of it. Every design decision has a functional purpose so that we could make a better product. We read through every comment on Kickstarter and every e-mail we have received since launching the MiStand, and got to work on improving it.
The base of MiStand+ has been carefully tapered to improve ergonomics and to reduce the weight of the new design. A cable slot has been milled in to the back face of MiStand+ to allow any standard USB cable to pass through. This is great for backers who like to place their MiStand+ on a desk or bedside cabinet and charge their tablet.
and many more!
For those of you who don't know about the MiStand mini please check out our previous Kickstarter campaign. We have made the new MiStand mini compatible with even more phones and cases; we will share further details soon!
MiStand mini Returns! (Stretch Goal #1)
As promised passing 350 backers means the MiStand mini is now available. The MiStand mini is perfect resting spot for your smartphone. It's a simple all aluminium unibody design and we have upgraded it by adding the all new Polyurethane pads found on the MiStand+ it means that MiStand mini now works with any phone with or without a case!
Just add £10 per MiStand mini onto your existing pledge!
MiStand+: Gold Edition! (Stretch Goal #2)
The 24K MiStand+ has a finish unlike any other product we have offered; after being machined from aluminium, it goes through a two stage polishing process to give it a mirror like appearance. The MiStand+ is then passed onto a local company who uses an Electroless Nickel plating technique; this involves literally immersing the MiStand+ in 24K Gold which produces a layer of gold on top of the nickel coating.
We are happy to offer the 24K MiStand+ to our Kickstarter backers as a reward, at an exclusive price of £99 with a limited quantity available.
MicroSuction is a facinating material. We loved using it during our first two projects, so we know its benefits and limitations. We wanted the original MiStand to be compatible with or without a case so included some sticky pads to increase the effectiveness when using it with tablet cases. They worked, but it was not ideal having separate pads; we wanted the MiStand+ to "just work" so when we started work on MiStand+ we said goodbye MicroSuction and after a lot of testing and tweaking we said...
MiStand+ comes with all new polyurethane pads which work whether you use a tablet case or not! The material is non-adhesive yet sticky. It doesn't leave any residue on your fingers or device.
The new pads are nearly 2 times thicker than the old MicroSuction pads making them a lot more durable and easier to maintain...just wipe with warm water and once dry they are fully restored!!
The same polyurethane material is used on the base, so MiStand+ is always stable (even when playing those frustrating games!) and works on most surfaces.
Works Great with cases...
Fluid 3D Rotation...with More Power!
When the original MiStand was launched the magnetic joint was designed to work with the majority of tablets. As time has passed, tablets have increased in size and weight so we needed to improve the magnetic joint. MiStand+ comes with an all new neodymium rare-earth magnet, which is 33% more powerful. This means that even the heaviest tablets work great with MiStand+.
Precision & Quality
We take great pride in the quality of our products and have gone to great lengths to ensure that MiStand+ maintains those high standards. The manufacturing company has recently invested in new machining centre which will allow us to produce MiStand+ to the highest standards. We are proud to design and manufacture our products in Great Britain and are able to oversee production from design to delivery.
After being machined each MiStand+ is glass-bead blasted, and then anodised, to give us three great colour choices: Silver, Black or Space Grey.
All New Price!!
MiStand+ contains many enhancements but that doesn't mean the price has to increase! Thanks to the new design and changes to the manufacturing process we are so excited to be able to offer MiStand+ exclusivley to our Kickstarter backers at rewards levels from £28 ($43 USD)!!

for taking the time to read our story we really appreciate you taking an interest in our product. We really hope you like what you see and would like you to help bring MiStand+ to the market. We are hoping to use Kickstarter to generate demand upfront and pay for the costs of the new extrusion die.

Risks and challenges
As with all projects there will be some risks and challenges ahead, we have tried to minimise these risks before we have approached everyone on Kickstarter.
We have worked with all of the suppliers and so we believe we have everything in place and do not foresee any issues.
You can see from our previous campaigns that communication is very important to us, we will keep you informed no matter the situation. We know that with out the Kickstarter community none of this would be possible.
