After this campaign is concluded, Cable Pivot will be available at http://meenova.com.
What is Cable Pivot?
We present to you, Cable Pivot, two stunningly beautiful desktop cable organizers that keep your cable organized and tangle free, and help you keep your desk neat and looking good. We have been working on the design of them for over a year and have gone through numerous iterations and prototypes.
First of all, Cable Pivot is designed to be functional and practical. It aims to solve one problem: organize the messy cables on our desk -- power cord, USB cable, USB charging cable, network cable.
We want them to do their job while looking good. We created 2 designs with 2 very distinct looks: one Round design with a dome-shaped top, one Rectangle with rounded corners. They both look simplistic and yet gorgeous.
Each Cable Pivot has 2 pieces: top and bottom. You take off the top to add or remove cables, and put it on to keep cables in place. Magnets embedded in the top and bottom keep them together. A micro-suction pad at the bottom keeps it stick to any smooth surface securely, even horizontally. The adhesiveness of micro-suction pad is not permanent -- you can easily re-position it and it won't leave any sticky residue.
Cable Pivot Round can hold one cable up to 6mm in diameter (such as network cable and thick USB 3.0 cable) and two additional cables up to 4mm in diameter (USB cables, notebook computer power cord) for a total of 3 cables. Cable Pivot can hold two cables up to 6mm in diameter and two additional cables up to 4mm for a total of 4 cables. They can hold more cables if you stack 2 thinner (4mm in diameters or less) cables into a single holding cut out.
Cable Pivot is made from aircraft-grade aluminum. Each one is individually crafted via a CNC milling process. They will then go through a sandblasting process and an anodizing and dyeing process to give them a stunningly beautiful finish and vivid colors.
When the base funding goal of $5000 is reached, backers will be able to choose from the following 3 colors (for both designs): space gray, silver, magenta. If funding reaches higher amount, more color choices will be added.
Risks and challenges
Our first kickstarter project was a success -- check out our profile for that. With that experience, we believe we will be able to deliver it again.
There are 2 major risks and challenges for any project: production delay and quality control.
Our first kickstarter project was delayed by a month and a half. We learned some lessons from that. The 2 main causes of delay: tooling and component sourcing. We are better prepared for both this time. But delay is still possible.
Quality control is always a challenge for any hardware product, no matter how small it may be. We strive to achieve high-quality products by: (1) choosing the best material & components; (2) finding quality vendors; (3) being attentive to details with QC (Quality Control).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
