About this project

What is Floatr™?

Floatr™ was an idea that was born out of necessity. David was traveling a lot to Philadelphia, when he realized, there wasn't an iPhone accessory that could not only comfortably fit in your pocket while traveling, but could also match the unlimited and endless possibilities uses of the iPhone 4.

That was a year ago. Today, we are more then excited to introduce the result of months of design iterations, prototypes and testing, Floatr™.

What makes Floatr™ so unique is it's Patent Pending design consisting of 2 (or up to 4!) pliable rubber legs and rubberized body that allows the user to move and switch around the legs to whatever is needed for that time, purpose and use. The rubberized body fits snuggly onto the back of the iPhone 4 and utilizes a clipping system on the back to conveniently store the legs, when not in use. This unique design allows Floatr™ to remain on the iPhone when not in use and easily fits in your pocket.

How will the funds be used?

The funds raised for this project will be used for manufacturing the first round of Floatr™. We will be using a process known as Compression Molding for the rubberized body and a similar process for the legs (almost exactly like how they made Gumby...remember that toy?). The funds then will go to the creation of the manufacturing tooling and the production of all the pre-ordered Floatr™s. If you want to be one of the first, pre-order yours today!

What will my sweet Rewards look like?

Backers of $10 or more will receive a letter-pressed thank you card. Letter-pressing is a unique printing process which leaves an embossed and 1 of a kind print. These cards will be hand signed, printed and numbered. Think of it as a little piece of art. You also get our eternal love & gratitude (priceless).

Backers of $20 or more through $1,000 or more will receive the above thank you card, as well as either 1, 2 or 50 manufactured Floatr™s (the quantity of which will vary, based upon your Backer level), also included is a beautiful Floatr™ t-shirt, the design will be posted soon. (quantity also dependent on Backer level).

For more Reward details, please review the Rewards to the right!

Thanks!
