About this project
Thanks for your support, Kickstarter Backers! With your help, we've achieved the first milestones to bring the BulletTrain Magic Pencil Holder to market!
iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are a powerful combination together! When they get separated? Not so much...
One of the challenges with the Apple Pencil is, it's very easy to misplace from the iPad Pro! By forgetting your Apple Pencil at home, at the office, in your bag, or on your desk, you render it useless—not to mention the risk of losing or breaking it!!!
The Magic Pencil Holder is a beautifully streamlined solution to mount your Apple Pencil to your iPad Pro, so you always have it when you need it!
Apple knows the Apple Pencil needs a dock—that's why next to every iPad Pro in the Apple Store, you'll see a concave tray on the display table for the Apple Pencil to call "home".
Without somewhere to secure your Apple Pencil, it's as easy to LOSE as it is to USE! The Apple Pencil can very easily roll out of sight, onto the floor, and even GET STEPPED ON!!!
The BulletTrain Magic Pencil Holder is a beautifully streamlined dock for Apple Pencil. At last, your Apple Pencil has somewhere to call "Home"!
We've designed the Magic Pencil Holder to simply and reliably hold your Apple Pencil in place. That includes on the iPad Pro, or anywhere else you stick the Magic Pencil Holder with included SAFE Stick!
When charging Apple Pencil, the Lightning Port Cover can be held in place on the Magic Pencil Holder! Apple doesn't offer a replacement for this part, so don't lose yours!
The Magic Pencil Holder is a true minimalist masterpiece, as it adds less than 1/8" of an inch of thickness to the Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. It also weighs less than half an ounce!!!
The Magic Pencil Holder can also be affixed to any smooth, flat surface with included SAFE Stick! In the photo above, the Magic Pencil Holder is attached to the right-side bezel of a 27" iMac!!!
We believe the utility of the Magic Pencil Holder belongs on EVERY iPad Pro!
We can't wait to get the Magic Pencil Holder onto your iPad Pro!!!

Risks and challenges
We have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort into the design of the Magic Pencil Holder, especially given the short time both iPad Pro and Apple Pencil have been on the market.
The BulletTrain team consists of seasoned professionals who have more than 100 years of combined experience in design, plastics engineering, and manufacturing.
All the details shown in the prototype appearance models are 100% manufacturable. That being said, we continue to refine details to ensure the final product is as close to perfection as possible!!!
At BulletTrain, we take Apple devices to their highest and best use. In the process, we only bring to life products we need, desire and can’t live without!
We've completed 3 successful campaigns on Kickstarter, and have learned a TON about manufacturing best practices in the process. While it's true we have at times delivered a finished product design later than expected, we have never failed to deliver a product as presented. We stand behind our products, and want to share them with each of you to make a meaningful impact in your lives!!!
We've developed strong relationships with extremely capable tooling and manufacturing partners through successful production of several products in recent years. In addition, our level of communication has deepened, and our standards continue to rise! We are confident that even if we receive an unexpected curveball, we will deliver on this campaign without compromise—with your help!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
