About this project
The Backtab is an ultra-convenient backrest designed to be with you wherever you go. Its small size and weight is comparable to a tablet PC. It fits in nearly every bag, yet is as comfortable as a standard beach chair.
The Backtab outstands in three specific categories:
Our intention was to create a backrest that is very comfortable, handy and also built for a lifetime of use. This is the reason we used GRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic) as the backtab's main material. GRP is extremely strong, durable and at the same time very lightweight.
Take a look at some of these incredible facts about GRP:
Lets take a closer look at some other components we used for the Backtab.
Thanks to its elegant and smart design the Backtab resembles the appearance of a tablet PC.
If we pass the 35000€ mark the black Backtab (made completely of black GRP sheets) will be unlocked.
If you have any kinds of questions, don't hesitate to ask us, we will answer them as quickly as possible!
Risks and challenges
CHALLENGES: To create the perfect Backtab, we tried many different processes and prototypes. We started with a design that would guarantee the highest level of functionality and comfort. Then, we evaluated different materials, some of which were extremely difficult to find. For example, the durable and lightweight GRP we used for the Backtab is also used to build helicopter rotor blades. We iterated and improved, and never gave up until we found the ideal solutions. In the end, we collaborated with six different companies to provide us with the high-quality materials, essential to the production of the Backtab.
RISKS: Although the companies we work with are located in Europe, there is always a chance that something will go wrong during the production process. No matter what happens, we will always give our best to solve any issues as quickly as possible. And we will always keep you informed. From the very first screw we order, to the last Backtab shipped, you will know everything that is happening in our workshop.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
