The supporters of the SETA™ SmartPhone Stand Kickstarter demanded a tablet stand and we heard you!
Hello Kickstarters from 1.0 Innovations. We are coming off our second very successful Kickstarter for the SETA™ SmartPhone Stand and we are very excited to share our latest innovations; the SETA™ Tablet Stands. Thank you for taking the time to view our project.
Like the SmartPhone Stand, the SETA™ Tablet Stand is designed to perform better than traditional tablet stands. It will suspend your tablet at the perfect viewing angle on your desk, nightstand, counter or any other smooth surface. It performs this function with far less effort than other stand. Simply push your tablet to attach then pull or twist to remove. Additionally, the T-Channel holds your cord where you need it when you need it...not on the floor.
Design and Function
- Materials- aircraft grade aluminum + NanoSuction™ pads
- NanoSuction™- grips the tablet and grips the surface but is not sticky to the touch
- Universal- works with all tablets (except Kindle) and most hard cases.
- Total Cord Management- T-Channel is compatible with OEM tablet charging cables
- Timeless Design- works with yesterdays, todays and tomorrows tablets and cords
- SETA™ 7 designed for smaller tablets works with all
- SETA™ 10 designed for larger tablets works with all
- SETA™ Color Options: Black, Silver, and White (XFLEX, Silver)
Why SETA™ Tablet Stand? Over a year ago, we created what we consider to be the ultimate versatile tablet stand that can go anywhere and hold any tablet, the XFLEX™. The XFLEX™ is a "good" surface stand but we wanted to create the "ultimate" tablet surface stand. Those who backed the SETA™ SmartPhone stand demanded we make a large version for tablets. We listened and that is how the SETA™ Tablet Stand was born.
How It Works. SETA™ incorporates NanoSuction™ technology that synthetically emulates the adhesive qualities of gecko feet. Your phone magically clings to the NanoSuction™ SETA™ pad while another pad on the base secures the stand to most flat, non-porous surfaces.
Care. NanoSuction™ can be rejuvenated when dirty by cleaning with a damp paper towel and letting air dry. We have performed extensive testing on the NanoSuction™ material and have yet to see any loss of suction as long as the pad is clean.
What will NanoSuction™ grip? It will grip every tablet (except the Kindle) we have tested. It will grip around 70% of the cases. Unfortunately, it does not work well on silicone rubber cases and some textured ones. The base of the stand will grip any smooth, non-textured surface.
We need your help! Your pledge will help bring SETA™ to life. With your support we can upgrade to a larger CO2 Laser Cutting System and cover tooling cost for larger production runs. We have some great rewards for your pledge but if you're unable to help with funding at this time you can still support our project by "sharing" this page with your friends on Facebook. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Risks and challenges
Our goal is to under-promise and over-deliver. That being said, there are risks and challenges involved in any venture and we are prepared to tackle them.
1.0 Innovations is committed to customer satisfaction and producing quality necessities (not accessories) that will change the way you use your mobile devices.
The SETA™ Tablet Stand is our third Kickstarter project, the first being for the XFLEX™ Tablet Stand. You are welcome to check it out and read our comments and positive feedback. Over 95% of our backer rewards shipped within two weeks of project completion. The remaining rewards still shipped prior the estimated delivery date. The SETA™ SmartPhone sand was 90% one to two months early on rewards. The final 10% was shipped on time. We were prepared then and we are prepared to deliver again.
The potential obstacles we face are production and supply delays along with quality control. We cut the aluminum and NanoSuction™ components in the US using the latest and most efficient CNC laser cutting technology. Production delays will not be a problem since the SETA™ SmartPhone stand is very similar in build and materials.
Aluminum production entails many variables and as a result shipments might be delayed. We'll prepare for this supply delay by forecasting demand and staying in constant contact with our supplier. Orders will be placed early enough to ensure delivery in time to fulfill orders.
Quality control is another challenge we're fully prepared to meet. We researched and developed several prototypes to achieve the perfect balance of function and design. Production issues have also been addressed and resolved throughout the production of several hundred units to dateLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
