 How Rolix Stand came to life.

"As a Multimedia student and part time Product Designer, I  use my laptop all the time; in library, at coffee shop, in subway, everywhere. And the problem I always had is the overheated laptop when I use it on my lap. I have bought few laptop coolers with cooling fans and they really do what they supposed to. BUT! I could not fit those big, not so "good" looking laptop coolers in my bag. Actually they would not fit in none of my bags. Plus, its really easy to break one of the cooling fans. 

So I needed something that is simple, portable and light. There are few portable laptop stands on the market right now, but they can only be used on flat surface or at your desk.

"Well, if I cannot find one I like, why not build one? "-I said to myself. I shared my idea with my friend who is in sales business, and he loved the idea too."

Tilek Abdiraimov

"I was very interested in my friend's idea of building a laptop stand that would be portable and light,as I had the same issue with being unable to carry laptop stand with me. He did not have an idea of what and how the laptop should look like, so we started developing its design concept together. It was all just a trial and we had many ideas and many sketches until we finally stopped at the last one. We loved the idea of its being able to be rolled up or folded, and the fact that it will be made of wood, which means light and natural.We made our first prototype using laser cutting machine and it looked really amazing to us. But when our friends saw it and shared their opinions  we realised it was actually an amazing product,not only to us. So with a suggestion of our friends, who loved our laptop same as us, we decided to make more of it so others can have it too."

Manufacturing of Rolix Stand.

Truth has to be told, Rolix Stand will be manufactured in China. We've been working with well established and trusted manufacturing company in China for the last 4 month now. They will handle the production as we will not be able to produce large amount of products here in UK. We will be visiting the manufacturing company in China to make sure everything goes right. Luckily we have close friends in China who will be helping us during our visit.

Delivery.

Our plan is to deliver first 1000 units before the end of this year by December. We will make every effort to deliver all rewards before the end of this Year but If things go crazy it will get quite difficult.

If things will go crazy,we have two options:

1) Add another reward for later Delivery,

and

2)We will contact one of the shipping companies such as "Shipwire" that offers fast and flexible shipping.

Update:Backers from US and Germany

Unfortunately, for the backers from US and Germany, it adds up £12 automatically. This is something we can not change. So backers from US and Germany need to select within UK and then make a pledge so you do not get charged for shipping. We will send survey when the project will be funded and that's when we will get your address and other information.

Risks and challenges

It is never easy to run a start up, and we know that we might face challenges, especially when our product is to be produced in another country.

To make sure everything goes right, we have already booked our tickets to China to visit the manufacturing company. We will stay there for 4 days to make sure the product will look just like a sample we have sent them. The company only produces products made of wood so they know what they are doing.
