About this project
At the Dawn of Wearable Technology, There is Finally a Successor to the Rubber Band…
The Nunchuk is bringing order and mobility to the Oculus Rift virtual reality head mounted display. We are entering an era where wearables will be everywhere and the Nunchuk will keep cables secure with slack for mobility and breakaway protection. Check out these shots of the Nunchuk taming the Rift. You can back us now, or follow the link on our project page to back us as the drive continues!
The questions does not stop at "what do I do with my earbuds."
We have more information, choices, and devices than ever before.
We have never been more powerful.
We have never had more access.
There has also never been so much clutter.
Great design and technology increases access while decreasing clutter. It empowers us to pay attention to the things that matter, cutting away all of the remaining spam.
We have tried other devices. They are all flawed.
The biggest problem with other organizational devices is that they become part of the clutter they are meant to whip into order because they are:
- Too Specific (difficult to remember to use and where you put it!)
- Too Small (becomes part of the clutter at the bottom of your bag!)
- Too disposable (after a few uses it breaks and becomes clutter)
- Too low-end (does not work with your presentation)
The Nunchuk Tech Strap is Mindlessly Simple.
With strong magnets and a durable flexible premium vegan leather exterior, The Nunchuk can be used for easy and reliable access and organizing of a vast variety of wearable tech accessories, sensors, and components.
Increase Access, Decrease Clutter
Increase Access to your Technology: Keep your earbuds where they belong, in easy reach of your ears without being in the way.
Decreasing the Clutter
We have all been there, wires, cords, and headphones. From getting caught on someone’s bag while getting off the train to taking a few minutes to untangle your USB cable to use it for a few seconds.
Clutter Free Environment
No latches, straps, or buttons.
Just pull and place.
No more thinking. No more mental or physical clutter.
Strong and Reliable:
The Nunchuk is built for action.
Perfect for the gym, running, and other outdoor activities. Increase access while decreasing clutter, which means keeping cords out of your way and your technology where you want it (headphones near your ears).
If your headphones fall out, they don't hit the ground.
The Nunchuk magnets are strong enough to always stay in the position you put them in.
Strong enough to clip to a jacket collar or lapel.
Perfect for running. Water resistant: don't worry about rain or sweat, and strong enough to keep your cords within reach while out of the way.
The Nunchuk is out of the way and reliable.
Light and Small
With a mass of less 0.6 oz (17 grams), about the weight of a pencil, The Nunchuk will never add to your load. You will not need to make choices about whether to use it or not, whether it is part of the clutter or eliminating the clutter.
Flexible and Versatile:
As our wearable tech quickly evolves, we need a versatile basic accessory that can adjust to our changing needs.
Reusable: Durable and Weatherproof
The Nunchuks are made to be simply reusable. With their versatility, they are not a disposable accessory and can be used regularly and for as many uses as you can imagine.
We made them with active lifestyles in mind, so rest assured about using The Nunchuk in all climates and weather systems.
Premium Materials and Simple Aesthetic
Nunchuks at Home
The Nunchuks can also be used for a simple solution to cleaning up the clutter at home. Many of us stash tangles of wires in out of sight crevices and corners. Use The Nunchuks to quickly whip these tangles into shape.
Your Imagination is the Limit!
Your Kung Fu is strong… but what other techniques do you have? While testing the prototypes we found that the Nunchuk does much more than just keep your wires and headphones.

The Design Process
Designing a simple solution to a great problem is our holy grail. And after months of testing the prototypes we believe we have just that.
We tested many skins, finally finding one durable and flexible enough to wrap easily around most objects. We sampled many varieties of magnets until finding magnets that can withstand pull and tug from your wires and headphones and resist coming apart and slipping, even when clipped to the collar of a thick outer garment. After months of design, prototyping and testing, we have a product that is of the best built quality, with amazing performance.

Risks and challenges
We have been designing, manufacturing, and delivering products for the past 5 years.
We have done all the necessary steps to make sure that the Nunchuk's quality and delivery time are met.
With every production there is risk of delay and design changes. We will do everything we can to mitigate these risks. If delays or changes happen, we will be sure to keep everyone updated through updates on our Kickstarter page.
We hope you enjoy this journey with us!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
