      iPhone 5 time guys would love to see a case.

    2. Michael Kane Creator on July 18, 2012

      Hey Ken - I have just shipped out your two replacement parts!

    3. Ken Goldenberg on July 18, 2012

      Never got my updated one. Original backer of 2. Wasn't hot on the way I couldn't dock it anyways

    4. Michael Kane Creator on June 29, 2012

      Sweet - thanks Matthew!!

    5. Matthew on June 28, 2012

      Just got the new and improved version of the case and am very happy with it thanks.

    6. Michael Kane Creator on June 12, 2012

      Hey @Ivan - thanks for the comment. This is on our list of improvements, which will come in the generation 3 design. This is a little further down the road, but coming soon!

      Anything being done to improve the ability to plug in the charger on the bottom or an adaptor to the top left to play music through speakers?

    8. Michael Kane Creator on May 25, 2012

      @Matthew - thanks so much! Truly appreciated!

    9. Matthew on May 25, 2012

      I received mine today. It doesn't look like the oadvil the photos or video. The plastic is bulky and cloudy. I thought the color of the 'skins' would be vibrant like advertised but it is NOTHING like that! Also the packaging it came in was yellow and had a sticky texture. This really doesn't look like what was advertised!

    13. tony palacios on May 21, 2012

      I haven't seen anything on my order? Any clue when that will be sent? Thanks

    14. Michael Kane Creator on May 4, 2012

      @Greg - truly appreciate that! Nothing secured yet, as we don't have final product, but we'll let you know exactly where they're at and when they're there. Where exactly are you from?


    15. Greg on May 3, 2012

      Do you have any idea what stores will carry it yet? I'd like to promote if I could.

    16. Michael Kane Creator on April 19, 2012

      @Ai thanks so much for the kind words! Coming so soon!


    17. Ai Ling on April 18, 2012

      I'd just like to convey my appreciation for the daily updates that you guys have been sending. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to receiving the final product :-)

    18. Michael Kane Creator on April 18, 2012

      @David - ha, I wish we could do such a thing! We'll see how far things go through the retail world first. If demand is high enough, maybe we'll license these out, just for you!

    19. David J Buchanan on April 18, 2012

      I will get my geek on. With the impending release of the avengers movie it would be cool to have some avengers back plates. Just a suggestion!

    20. Michael Kane Creator on April 15, 2012


      I have also sent a response to your private message - just a few moments ago. Get back to me via that message or directly at and we'll speak. I'd also be more than happy to hop on the phone with you, if you prefer. We truly appreciate your patience and your support in our project.


    21. Michael Kane Creator on April 15, 2012

      Hey Jason,
      Thanks for your support. We are sorry for the delay. Our mold was sent out for a few adjustments and we just it got back on Friday. We will be doing another test run on Monday. Once we see that go ok, we will finalize the backplates then we will be shipping shortly after that. I assure you we are very close to shipping. We truly appreciate your support and patience.

    22. Jason Johnson on April 15, 2012

      I own a consulting firm and was wanting to order an extra 100 or so, after reviewing these. kind of disaapointed on the time its taking

    23. Jason Johnson on April 15, 2012

      I have not received any tshirts as promised and just asked them to cancel my order pledge of $125.00

    24. Michael Kane Creator on April 11, 2012

      Hi @Kate - thanks so much for your patience!  We are so very close to production, but have hit a couple speed bumps, which have obviously slowed us down a bit.  Word from our manufacturer today was that our mold should be back in tomorrow/Friday at the latest.  At this point, backplates get produced and we start shipping, as soon as we have them.  I don't want to give you a promise an not hit it, so I'll just say we're very, very close.  I'll have an update out via Kickstarter as soon as we have a more definitive word.  We truly, truly appreciate your patience.  You rock!


    25. Kate on April 11, 2012


      What's the latest update? Everything going well?

      Super excited (and anxious) to receive my cases.

    26. Michael Kane Creator on March 22, 2012

      Congratulations on a successful project, I live in Australia so will miss out on the launch party, it would have been great to have the insurance but all the same I really look forward to receiving my cool limited edition cellhelmet.

    31. Michael Kane Creator on February 24, 2012

      @Martin - so glad to have your support!

      Martin Petersen on February 24, 2012

      @Michael Yeah, the insurance thing is awesome, but I mostly want it for the cool design and to help support Kickstarter projects. ^^

    33. Michael Kane Creator on February 24, 2012

      @Martin - thanks so much for your backing! International shipping is included. There is no shipping charge. cellhelmet insurance coverage is only available for United States and Canadian residents, so keep that in mind (not sure where you're from). You can still purchase the cellhelmet though, if you're out of the coverage area! We truly appreciate your support!

      Martin Petersen on February 24, 2012

      So question. I might not have looked deeply enough, but I can't seem to find any information on international shipping, whether it'll cost extra or whether you just don't do that. Care to elaborate?

    35. Michael Kane Creator on February 13, 2012

      Hey @Tim Aucoin - we really appreciate the kind words! Pretty sure we know which project you're speaking of, but we'll keep it unmentioned. We'll keep you updated along the way - never hesitate to reach us through here or 412-610-0692. Thanks again!


    36. Tim Aucoin on February 13, 2012

      @ Michael Kane... Thanks for the great updates and the way you keep in contact with your supporters! This is only the 2nd Kickstarter project I've taken part in. The first one was also for a (iPhone) case, and it is turning out to be a disaster, so I'm glad to see your progress here! What a great community of backers there are on this project! :-)

    37. Michael Kane Creator on February 11, 2012

      @Gus - you can also just add the two together and then send us a note, with instructions of how to mark your account. We have the ability to add notes to your backing, so we can ship accordingly!

      Gus, it's possible if you make two different accounts. My parents wanted to get one of the same level for each of them, but they couldn't do that with the same account..unless there's a way that we didn't figure out!

      Gus Osimitz on February 11, 2012

      Do you know if its possible to fund two different levels of this. Like $66 one (so I can get the special) and the $75 one?

    40. Michael Kane Creator on February 9, 2012

      Thanks so much Max!

    41. max on February 9, 2012

      Wow, funded already with 30 days left! Congrats.

      Thanks so much @Michael for getting back to me so quickly! Greatly appreciated!

    43. Michael Kane Creator on February 8, 2012

      Hi @Lisa. Thanks so much for your support! You'll get to give us this address via a questionnaire, which will be sent out after our campaign is over. Make sure that you note it! Thanks so much for backing the cellhelmet project - we truly appreciate it!

      Lisa on February 8, 2012

      I would like to send my cellhelmet to a different address when they start production how can I do this???

    45. Michael Kane Creator on February 8, 2012

      Thanks @David - we truly appreciate the support!

    46. David Rushing on February 8, 2012

      Congrats on being fully funded, guys!

    47. Michael Kane Creator on February 7, 2012

      @John thank YOU! We really appreciate your support!

    48. Michael Kane Creator on February 7, 2012

      @Tim we're shooting for mid March - everything appears to be on schedule!

    49. John Beasant III on February 7, 2012

      Thanks again for the help Michael! Looking forward to your current AND future ventures. :P

    50. Tim Aucoin on February 7, 2012
