This project's funding goal was not reached on August 22, 2011.
About this project
Our product is called The Move, it is a holder for the iPhone 4/iPod touch that enables you to attach your device anywhere on your clothing (and won't affect the material in any way.) The really cool thing is that there are NO straps/clips/velcro/magnets required, only the screen of your iPhone 4/iPod touch will be visible. Even if you have no pockets, you can keep in touch on the go.
How it Works
1) Place The Move behind your shirt or article of clothing that you are going to 'wear' The Move with.
2) Position The Move where you want your iPhone4/iPod Touch screen to appear.
3) Place your iPhone4/iPod Touch in front of your shirt or article of clothing.
4) Secure your iPhone4/iPod Touch by snapping it into The Move (as shown in the pic below):
Your clothing is what keeps The Move in place, it will be secure until you want to take it off!
Special features of the The Move include:
Point of View Video
When your iPhone 4/iPod touch is attached anywhere on your clothing, you can record video hands free wherever you are.
- At a concert
- At a sporting event
- Capturing memories with your kids
- On vacation and exploring
Anywhere you are and anything you're doing you can now record video - hands free!
Listening to Music
Attach your iPhone 4/iPod Touch to either the upper arm of your shirt or near your waist with your headphones and you will have quick access to your iTunes music library and phone where ever you go (your headphones jack connects as normal to your iPhone4/iPod Touch which you then insert into The Move).
- Waiting in line
Hands Free Reference
Attach your iPhone 4/iPod touch to your forearm for hands free reference.
- As a GPS device you can use while driving
- For accessing reference material when sightseeing
- To view recipes quick and easy when cooking
- For quick access to notes during presentations
- When Geocaching
- Reference tabs while playing guitar
Hands Free Phone
Attach The Move close to the neck line your shirt and use it as a hands free device for your iPhone 4. It's a great way to keep in touch on the go because you don't need any pockets/clips/cases, The Move goes where you go, anytime, anywhere!
In order to bring The Move to market we need a way to mass produce them to bring down the cost per unit. The way to do it is by a process called injection molding. The catch is that the creation of Injection molds is costly. Your pledge money will be used to create the molds we need to bring The Move to you!
After all pledges have been received all we have to do is contact the manufacturer with the design (that we have already created) to get the molds made, then we will start manufacturing and immediately shipping out The Move to all the people that helped us reach our goal by pledging!
All manufacturing of the injection molds and The Move will be done locally, we want to keep this product domestic and help our local economy.
We are pleased to offer FREE Shipping to all orders within Canada and the U.S. International orders please add $8-12 for shipping depending on the pledge tier listed to the right.
If funding is successful, we will add a section to our web site where people can upload photos of themselves using the Move in their unique way AND video that they have taken when using The Move as a Point of View camera. Stay tuned for details as we will announce this on our website: www.theiphonemove.com and as a backer you will receive exclusive access to this section of the website for a limited time after launch.

The Move is specifically designed to keep your iPhone/iPod Touch safe, we didn't want to risk ours falling out, which is one of the reasons why we designed The Move in the first place.
We did try a simple case but we found that the device did pop out if you moved around, that's why on The Move the over hanging inner edge is designed to be much deeper than you would find on any case. The edge along with the material used for the holder locks your phone into place. To compensate for the stiffness of the material we added cuts in the side to make it easy to get your iPhone/iPod Touch in and out of The Move.
Look closely at the project shot, at the top of the case on the left there is a raised portion with a cut in the middle that lines up with where you would attach your head phones to your iPhone/iPod Touch - that's where you use your head phones.
You attach your head phones to your device first and then snap it into The Move as normal. In all pics with head phones, people are actually using them to listen to music!
The Move DOES work with many smart phones and cell phones although it is not
tailor made for them. As long as the phone is close to the same dimensions it will fit.
The move CAN work with the iPhone 3G and 3GS however due to its thickness,
it limits the thickness of clothing that will work best.
Any type of shirt/sweater/skirt/dress, jackets however are sometimes too thick.
As soon as our funding timeline is complete and we have achieved our funding goal we estimate that The Move Injection Molds can be created and production will start in as little as 4-6 weeks.
The Move is a one of a kind idea and initially will only be available on Kickstarter. Once we reach our funding goal we will offer The Move for sale through our website: http://www.theiphonemove.com
The inner edges of The Move will lock your IPhone/ITouch in place, whatever you’re doing and however YOU are moving your IPhone/ITouch is guaranteed to be secure.
Once our project timeline expires you will get a request from Kickstarter to give us your address for shipment.
Our focus right now is to raise money to get The Move into production. After our pledging on Kickstarter is done however we would love to hear from you! Please message us once our kickstarter campaign ends from the email on our website.
Absolutely Not! The move uses the tension of the material of your clothing to hold it in place, your clothing will not be affected in any way. We've used The Move for months on clothing with no ill effects!
The Move will be available in Black and White only at this time. We are offering a Limited Edition Green coloured Move as a special thanks to contributors who pledge $150 or more.
