Do you view what we view, for the U Vü?!
The World's Best Smartphone Action Pack!
U Vü is a heavy duty pack designed specifically for your smartphone. With U Vü, you can record video on your phone, completely hands free. The pack features a Roll-Top zippered waterproof pocket for your smartphone and heavy-duty pack material, so you can document your adventures, no matter how rigorous the journey. Make your phone the Action Camera that it already is!
U Vü is patent pending. All packs shown are prototypes and are subject to improvement, if at all possible.
We are so excited to bring U Vü to Kickstarter! Right now, U Vü can easily accommodate any phone height of 5"-5.7". For example, it will fit a Samsung Galaxy Edge or the iPhone 6...
Please be sure to consider this when you donate. We are fully prepared to produce a "Stretch Goal" if funding reaches $1M, where the Oversized Pack will be unlocked.
The U Vü Smartphone Action Chest Pack features adjustable elastic straps that make it easy to fit the pack to your body. We will have 2 interchangeable sizes of harness, Small and Large.
The pack is made with 100% woven polyester fabric, finished with a durable water repellent. The back of the fabric is laminated with a thin black polyurethane coating. Together, this makes the pack incredibly strong, durable and waterproof.
We all know "phones + water = bad day". Luckily, you don't need to worry about that with the U Vü packs!
The phone pocket features a roll-top closure system reinforced by the heavy-duty zipper seal. All of this ensures your phone will stay dry!
The Interactive Touch Screen allows you to use your phone while its still in the pack, when using the front-facing camera. This screen is made with high quality UV and Scratch Resistant plastic, that doesn't compromise the quality of video from your phone.
We have several color options available! At the end of the campaign, you will be able to choose from our color options, to find the right style that fits you. Color options may change with funding at the end of the campaign.
There are many activities that require the pack to lay on your chest at a different angle. Included in your donation will be foam wedges that securely attach to the back of the pack. This raises the angle of the pack, thus creating a different camera view.
All packs shown are prototypes and are subject to improvement, if at all possible.
The U Vü team is made up of hardworking, honest, dedicated and adventure-loving people! We are working hard to make the U Vü project a reality. We know that you will love this product and that it has so much potential to grow. With your help, we see U Vü spreading into a large company with small town values. Customer satisfaction is our priority and we are so excited to grow our customer base with Kickstarter.
Our timeline is based on a 45 day Kickstarter campaign. As backers and founding members of the U Vü community, your support will help us jump start this journey! Once we’ve confidently navigated our first production and have delivered our first packs into your hands, we plan on expanding selections as far as pack sizes, color options and functionality. As backers, your feedback and input will play an integral role in this process.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge has been finding manufacturers that were capable of providing the different methods of sewing and Ultrasonic welding to ensure the waterproofing and durability of the U Vü pack. We found that the companies that had the capabilities did not want to work with the little guys, like us. We are now working with companies in the U.S. and abroad to remedy this challenge.
Another big challenge was the waterproofing. This is one reason that I have decided to add the Roll-Top Closure system beneath the waterproof zipper. To give everyone "peace of mind" that their phone is safe.
And, of course, the biggest challenge of all, the Funding. I didn't want to have to give away the ski area (Farm) to bring the U Vü to market. Yes, I could have taken a lot of money from investors that were just interested in the percentage of the company. I am not a materialistic person, I am a Ski Bum! I want people to fund because they believe in the U Vü Pack and the good that I could do, for this world, with the money from the success of the U Vü.
There are always risks when striking out on a business venture, especially as a start-up coming from the bottom. However, even though I never saw myself as an inventor, spokesman, advertiser, or businessman, I knew if I didn't at least try this, I would always regret it.
I don't want to let down anyone who takes a chance on me and donates their hard earned money to help bring my project to life. I want every single person who buys/donates to be 100% satisfied. I will do all in my power to make sure that becomes a reality.
I know unforeseen occurrences do transpire. If there are any significant delays, I will not hesitate to go straight to the factories, suppliers, transport hubs, or wherever the challenge is, and do all I can to get things back on track.
We all know that Murphy's Law likes to join in sometimes, but if he does show up, we will work with him vigorously until he is gone. And, with Mother Nature and the Ski Gods hopefully bringing us another wondrous season of POW (Powder), we promise you that we will plow on, be it via skis, dogsled, or snowmobile, we will deliver your U Vü Pack!!
I want to "Thank" all of you that view what we view for the U Vü!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
