Why QooQi (pronounced Cookie)?
We believe that a desktop cable organizer should be easy to use, made from high quality durable materials, manage up to 5 cables, versatile for horizontal or vertical placement and unobtrusive with a small footprint. This is why we designed QooQi.
Desire This: "QooQi lets you fashionably organize cables in either matte silver, black or green finishes"
Scott Buscemi - 9To5Mac.com: "All of my cables like to fall off my desk and into oblivion. I personally backed this project and it has already exceeded its $10k goal!"
inStash: "Nobody hates crazy out-of-control cables more than B&A. However, the QooQi Cable Organizer is a new contraption likely to change all that"

ApartmentTherapy.com: "QooQi - cable organizer I could use right away"
What is Qooqi made from?
Crafted as one piece aluminum knurled on the sides and edges for extra grip. Nano pad technology keeps each QooQi securely in place on smooth surfaces vertically or horizontally. The pad is easily cleaned and refreshed with a damp cloth. QooQi will come in 3 flavors - matte silver, black and a very sweet Limited Edition Kickstarter green QooQi.
How big is a QooQi?
QooQi is small enough to be unobtrusive on your desktop or working surface while doing an amazing job with your cables. Each QooQi is less than 2 inches in diameter and roughly as thick as an iPhone 4/4S.
How many cables can each QooQi manage?
Each QooQi can manage up to 5 cables up to 4mm thick. Lightning, micro usb and other cables work perfectly with QooQi. Here are some examples:
QooQi on vertical surfaces
QooQi can also be used on smooth vertical surfaces:
We have put a lot of time and our personal funds to get to this point and look forward to working with the Kickstarter community to take QooQi all the way. We are now ready and feel confident in our timeline below.
How will the funds be used?
The funds raised will be utilized for the development and manufacturing of QooQi production tooling/molds, packaging design, manufacturing and meeting MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) requirements of our manufacturers. The past 7 months have been filled with designing QooQi, materials testing, prototyping and building relationships with key manufacturers.
B&A Studio (BAS)?
QooQi was designed by Jelena Tomic and Bojan Smiljanic of B&A Studio and is managed by Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi. We are a fledgling design studio and our cumulative backgrounds are in industrial design, illustrations, engineering and marketing. We place a premium of well thought out design, attention to detail, time management for our projects and customer service.

Thank you Kickstarters we could not have done this without you!!
Risks and challenges
QooQi is our second Kickstarter project so we have the experience of successful project under our belts. You can view our first project here on Kickstarter by searching for "Modo"
When manufacturing any product there are always unplanned variables that spring up. At BAS we have spent the last 7 months testing, designing, modifying and retesting Qooqi. After many early samples and test models we have made 3 fully functional final product prototypes with our manufacturer.
We believe that by communicating effectively with our backers and providing regular updates we will be able to set right expectations and produce an exceptional Kickstarter experience for all involved.
We also have a manufacturer that has a wealth of experience manufacturing similar products. We have the right team and with your help we will bring Qooqi to the market successfully and on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
