My name is Chitanshu Vora. I am a Pharmacist by profession; a science major and aspiring tech product designer. As a father of two sons I realize all of our kids want tech-time. When I saw the children trying to hold the phone to watch "Yo Gabba Gabba", I thought there's a real need for a small, sleek and affordable smartphone holder. So just like many other Kickstarters I embarked on making a prototype.
My business partner suggested I should incorporate a stylus to the smartphone stand. And once we found a manufacturing partner they added a waterproof USB flash drive to the final design. That's how US3 Drive was born!
The product manufacturer we're working with produces electronics for some of the top world renowned companies were quality and durability is first priority.
September 2013: Funding of $20,000 or more is complete and funds will be used for Tooling and finalizing of the mold.
October 2013: Manufacture small run of product for quality control testing.
Late October 2013: Approve final product and packaging.
November 2013: Product release and receive. Ship product to backers.
NOTE: The final design may vary but the key features remain unchanged.
Thank You! For taking the time to look at this project on Kickstarter!
Risks and challenges
With every dream comes challenges and more creativity to counter those challenges. We have minimized the project risks by collaborating with experienced manufacturers who emphasize on meeting quality standards.
We have faced and solved many challenges along the way from design conception to developing a fully functional prototype.
