Joraworks is putting your dreams to work by creating the innovative J-Stand.
This lightweight, durable, and distinctive style compliments your current iPhone by making it a better product for you.
Now, be able to see the artist on your phone while listening to it on your wireless speaker.
Lets you use your phone's social media while working on your computer.
The shape of the J-Stand provides the perfect angle to make any phone usable and easy to see while working on the computer.
The lightweight, durable, and simple form language compliments any phone and is compatible with a wide range of cases.
The Models available include:
The 1st prototype
The original design came about from a need to make the iPhone more functional while charging. I often found myself needing to stop work and pick up my phone when I would here a ping. This wasn't that efficient especially when your right in the middle of doing something. Likewise, my boss didn't like that interruption. So, I created this. Now I don't have to even move to answer the phone or see a text. Everything about my phone is at my finger tips even while working on my computer. These initial prototypes were made of stainless steel but the production versions are made of plastics.
Now, by creating a more vertical platform the J-Stand made the iPhone into a functional social media display while charging or working at your computer.
The production versions will be made with 2 part plastics which we will blend to create the J-Stand. The Stands will be hand made from multiple Silicone molds made by Joraworks. After the molding process is complete the stands will be painted and numbered. Then each stand will be quality checked prior to shipping and can be fitted with custom graphics upon request. The stands will also be individually numbered for reference and collectibles.
The standard iPhone charge cord fits from the rear of the stand through the slot in the center, maintaining a simple and easy fitting connection.

How is the money being used?
If the goal is reached we will pursue purchasing materials to locally produce the J-Stands in Sunnyvale,CA. This will give us much more flexibility and options to offer our costumers with different materials, colors, graphics and textures. With having the stands built right here in the USA, we are hoping to help spread technology from a local grassroots beginnings. If demand is great enough and our budget is large enough we would like to upgrade from silicone molds to invest in mass production by plastic injection molding and use recycled plastics for the materials.

Risks and challenges
The Development to Production Strategy:
1. Tooling - We plan to harvest local materials to make our new molds ourselves locally. Currently, we are using a simple RTV silicone mold to make 1 stand at a time. The addition of the new multiple molds will quickly lower the final cost and increase production, quality, and customer options.
2. Production - We plan to produce the stands using local plastic suppliers. As a company we feel we can help the environment and our customers by keeping the materials as minimal as needed to reduce the global footprint while exploring new more sustainable materials. The graphics will be done at our local graphics vendor and be made of 3M high quality decals.The current production will be transitioned from small volume batch building to having multiple molds medium quantity production. In the hopes demand is needed for high volume. This is inline with our quantity estimates based on iPhone and cell phone growth yearly.
3. Packaging will be done locally and shipped per location. Each package will include the J-Stand and an extra JoraWorks logo decal for the customer.
4. Shipment will also be done locally by the US Postal Service. The customer will be notified of the timing of the shipment and a tracking number.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
