Project Background

iPad is simply a wonderful product. However, holding and working the iPad (or working on it) while walking, sitting at your desk or lying down in bed can be quite inconvenient. From these inconvenient situations came the idea of the DUET

After several unsuccessful attempts to find a perfect iPad case and stand, the American ingenuity came into play "If I can't find it, I will build it". After several brainstorming sessions in pursuit of a perfect iPad case, final result was the DUET

I got my first CAD made by a local engineer in Seattle. Next came the big step of finding a company to build my prototype professionally and after exhaustive research, I was able to find a company in China that made high quality products for well known brands in USA and other countries. They were able to work with me and give me quality assurance and great pricing.

After making numerous prototypes and improving each time, fast forward few month and few trips to China, I was able to turn my dream into reality.

The handheld iPad carrying case will be made using PC and ABS.PC. It weighs less then 7 ounces and the floor stand will be made using high grade metal and plastic. I now have the factory ready to start the mold and make the DUET. 

Thank you for checking out our prototype of the DUET.  With your support, we can make this sleek and unique accessory for the iPad a reality for everyone.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There can often be difficulties when it comes to getting the final product finished and completed on time. I want to ensure that the highest quality product is made. As such, it may take more than time than initially anticipated.

Over the past year, I have built a strong rapport with the manufacturer. I have visited the factory on three separate occasions to inspect the working conditions. In doing so, I have personally come to know the people who will be assembling the DUET.

The components of the DUET  will be made in two different factories and like any other manufacturing part, issues and concerns may arise, however I have taken all necessary steps to ensure that these issues are limited.

These factories have extensive experience in making IPAD cases and stands.  They have made popular brand products for well known American companies.

Money raised on Kickstarter will be used for tooling and injection molding.  This is a very detailed and expensive process. With the help of our supporters, when the DUET becomes one of the success stories on Kickstarter, I plan to go to China again to ensure that the DUET is made per spec and is of the highest quality.

I expect to get the project done in a timely manner and will do everything possible to meet and even exceed expectations of each and every one of my supporters, and that they in return will recommend the DUET to friends and family.
