Update #23

Happy Holidays from SoundJaw!


Good evening all! It’s been a long time since we spoke last so I wanted to just send a quick update. First, I hope you all had a great year and have plans to relax and wind down as the year comes to an end. Second, the SoundJaw was unavailable for purchase for a couple months but it is now available again for purchase at the crowdfunding store,, and could make a great stocking stuffer. TLB is guaranteeing Christmas Eve delivery on orders placed by noon on Friday and shipping is free on orders over $25. Thanks again for your support those many years ago, it still means a lot to me. 


Update #22

A New Year and a New Project

To the backers of the first SoundJaw... I just wanted to let you all know that I have teamed up with my dad and brother for a new project. This time it isn't an iPad accessory, it's a game. If you get a chance please check it out here: If you are a SoundJaw Unlimited backer, I'm sorry for the extra update telling you something you already know. Have a great weekend :)

Update #21

My Next Project!

To the original soundjaw backers....

Hey all of my SoundJaw backers! It's been over a year since the original SoundJaw got funded. I have just launched the next project, this time with my brother. We have teamed up and received input from dozens of other Kickstarter innovators as well. Anyways, if you have a chance, check it out and tell your friends :)

Thank you!

Update #20

Final Update


Thank you all for your support with the SoundJaw project last year! It was great to get to know some of my backers and I enjoyed hearing your feedback and suggestions for the SoundJaw.

While at MacWorld this year I met a lot of people who loved the SoundJaw but had a hard time squeezing it onto their case. They also had other devices that they wanted to use it on and sadly the original SoundJaw wasn't so flexible. This made me determined to find a solution.

Enter the SoundJaw Unlimited,

Please check out the freshly launched project, and if you feel inclined, please spread the word amongst your friends.

Thank you!

Update #19

Probably my last update :(


Hey there Backers! I just wanted to send out one final update to say thanks and to also clear up some confusion. I have received messages from a handful of people claiming that there SoundJaw hasn't arrived. I have been working hard on trying to find a solution for this but it looks like USPS has just been VERY slow in delivering some of the packages. Also, if you only filled out the survey after I sent out the final batch there is a possibility your shipping details got mixed in with the rest and I didn't see them. If this is the case please send me a message with your address and the color you want. I will then double-check with the list and we can go from there.

Thanks again for giving me the push I needed to get this off the ground. It has been a great learning experience for me.

    COLOR COMMITTEE- Want a say in the colors available for the SoundJaw? Due to the fact that the manufacturing cost goes up when we start to customize we can't offer too many colors right now. We are going to do black and white for sure but are not sure on the others. We most likely will offer 2 more colors but would like your input. The first $3 you spend on this reward gets you a vote in what color you want. For each additional dollar you spend you get another vote. For Example: $5= 3 votes. $10=8 votes. $100= 98 votes. At the end of the project I will send out a survey asking what color you want, you may divide votes among multiple colors if you wish. I will then add up all the votes and provide you with the results.

    Due to the fact that the Kickstarter community is based on integrity I'm doing a discounted tier for those who intend to spread the word. Whether it's your friends, blogs, or Twitter, SoundJaw would love the publicity. Oh yeah, this reward will get you a SoundJaw.

    You will get all that is listed above plus an extra SoundJaw. In addition you will be sent a numbered handmade clay prototype of the SoundJaw immediately after the funded project closes. The clay is the same clay I used to design the SoundJaw. It is not as beautiful as the plastic product but does a great job of enhancing the sound. Due to the time involved in making these I have set the limit to 50.

    This reward is titled "I have a dream". I would love to shoot an Internet commercial. It will involve an iPad and a helicopter. I'm not going to give specifics but I don't think the iPad will look as pretty when we are done. This will be a pricey endeavor but definitely amazing. I'm sure it will go viral. What's in it for you? I would love it if you could be in the video. This will mean going up in the helicopter and such. You will also get the carcass of the iPad. There is only one spot available. Additional Bonus: You will be an honorary member of the "Color Committee" with 250 votes. This will give you a very important role in picking out the colors I will offer the SoundJaw in. Thanks in advance!
