THE REMORA is a simple but elegantly designed solution for attaching your favorite stylus or pen to your iPad... it looks great and performs its intended function perfectly. I'm very impressed. Pros: Well made, secure hold, doubles as a grip. Cons: None. – Julie Strietelmeier, the-gadgeteer.com

Full Review: http://the-gadgeteer.com/2015/08/31/remora-stylus-pen-holder-for-apple-ipad-smart-covers-review/

INSPIRATION • Many people would like to keep a stylus and pen with their iPad, so when I learned Apple's iPad Smart Covers have magnets inside this sparked the idea for the Remora—a stylus & pen holder that attaches to a Smart Cover's magnets. • Steve King

One-Two Punch • The Remora’s patent-pending design, with its arched crown and tapered body, can hold one large stylus or pen, or two regular-size writing instruments.

Steve Jobs Q & A • During the iPhone's debut Steve Jobs asked, Who wants a stylus? You have to get 'em, put 'em away, you lose 'em. The Remora is my answer to Steve's question. With a Remora people will want a stylus because it can be kept close at hand, is easy to put away, and isn't likely to be lost.

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS • The Remora works with a wide range of styluses (capacitive & electronic), most ballpoint and fountain pens, and mechanical pencils too.

MAGNETIC ATTRACTION • The Remora's metal baseplate is attracted to the magnets in Smart Covers, yet the Remora itself isn't magnetic and won't work as a refrigerator magnet.

GET A GRIP • A Remora provides a comfortable hand grip when carrying an iPad and can be easily repositioned as a finger grip for reading.

STAND & DELIVER • A Smart Cover with a Remora attached can fold into a display stand.

PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE • You can pledge for a Remora, or for a Remora bundled with a black Hand Stylus. This is an improved Hand Stylus with a more responsive tip, a gold-plated nib, dual air channels, and a stronger connection between the knurled finger grip and barrel.

 HAND IN HAND • My Kickstarter campaign for the Hand Stylus still holds the record as the most popular stylus on Kickstarter. The Hand Stylus features the world's smallest retractable tip that's easy to replace and rotates as it retracts so it wears evenly. The Hand Stylus received rave reviews in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, WIRED, and many other tech publications. handstylus.com

ALL OR NOTHING • We must reach our funding goal or we’ll receive none of the pledged funds, so we truly need your support to make the Remora happen. Thank you! • Asante • Danke • Domo • Dziekuje • Efharisto • Gamsa • Gracias • Grazie • Kiitos • Merci • Obrigado • Spasibo • Sukria • Takk • Toda • Xiè Xiè

Risks and challenges

When 7,500 people backed the Hand Stylus on Kickstarter, far more than we expected, we were still able to send everyone their rewards within a few weeks of the stated ship date. We're better prepared this time round to deal with the extra demands that come with a highly successful Kickstarter campaign.

To make sure we ship on time, we've already approved the Remora's prototypes and the Remora's dies and tooling are nearly complete. All we need now is enough support from the Remora's Kickstarter campaign to meet our factories' minimum order requirements.
