      Huh... strange. I'm in the middle of creating a course on crowdfunding for the UN PRME partner in HK... which led me to find out you guys did a new Glif last year... and it was around the same time I backed the Pocket Tripod too! Too bad I didn't get any email alert from KS, otherwise I would've happily backed the new Gilf again!

      Hey BTW, would you guys be up for an interview about your experience creating products through crowdfunding? I think it would be awesome to have someone like you guys who have been doing it since the early days of KS. Please let me know. Cheers.

      Today the Glif arrived, after a long time of waiting. But I must say it's a beautiful design, fits nice around the iPhone. Has even got space for the buttons on top and the side of the phone. All the dimensions are perfect and don't interfere with the display of the iPhone.

      Ordered mine on December 1, 2010 and up to now no Glif arrived in the Netherlands. Many e-mails to USA and UK and many promises but nothing that makes me happy.

      Hi, I haven't received Gilf yet. Is there any way to confirm if it is shipped? (I'm from the US)

    16. Morbious Stone on January 21, 2011

      hi guys, been loving the Glif. I use it to hold my iPhone when I stream my dj gigs live on the internet. It's been working out great so far. Here's a photo of it in action at he club

      Yay, mine came today! Great job guys, it's exactly what I wanted. Be patient, I backed mine with everyone else and it only needed to come north of the border to Canada. Already tweeted and recommended it to everyone.

    21. Mesutkaraman on January 4, 2011

      Living in The Netherlands and still waiting for my glif. Is it possible to check the status of delivery?

      hi, i just noticed that I needed to complete survey to get glif. Hope it does not cause any problem. thank you and congrats.

    24. George Kiosov on December 30, 2010

      Got mine one today. Very nice NY present from you and our post service. Happy New Year from Russia!

    25. Dan Provost & Tom Gerhardt 9-time creator on December 30, 2010

      No need to be concerned. I think you're right Ken, international plus holiday shipping is a bad combination. Please let us know if you don't have them by next week and we can send out a replacement.

      Still waiting in Canada too- lousy holiday shipping I think is to blame. I hope none were lost, or that they have shipping insurance, usually the first bit is automatically covered.

      Still waiting mine here in Amsterdam NL... shall I be concerned? :(

      Got my Glif yesterday. I live outside Chicago. Very impressive. I will have some jealous family members this Christmas who I'm sure will be ordering their own.

      I just got my Glif and am very impressed with the quality.
      One thing i noticed was that the fit of the glif is so tight that is pushes my invisible shield away as i put it on.

      I recall reading a post saying that it was used with a invisible shield.

      I really like the glif but dont want to risk getting my iphone all knicked up.

      I just received the Glif in the mail. It is, to sum up in one word, Perfect. Thanks guys.

    37. Petri Olderhvit on December 13, 2010

      Hey there...Oops...I just realized that I just went in for the 50$ without noticing the extra 8$ for international shipping. Since I'm in Sweden I would still love to get it shipped here.
      Advice on fixing the balance?

      Awesome video. Fun to see how everything gets put together from making the mold to watching the injection machines working. Thanks for making the video and sharing!

    44. James Murty on November 29, 2010

      I wish that purchasing more thing was this much of an adventure/fun

    45. Josh Fields on November 29, 2010

      Just watched the latest video. Very cool, and more labor to load the tripod fittings than I envisioned. Have you heard from Apple yet?

      @ Sami Laine - When you filled out the survey, you elected to not have your name listed (by filling in "none" in the name field). Let us know if you want to be listed! The missing names are people that a) haven't filled out the survey, or b) did not want their name listed.

    48. Sami Laine on November 27, 2010

      Waiting anxiously for my injection molded one! Just a small nit; looks like you have 1,054 names missing from your contributor list on the Glif website backers list. Yes, I only noticed as I vanity-searched myself :(

      Thanks guys! The 3D printed glif is great and I would love to see a similar type of holder for the iPad if your looking to expand the line.
