4,823 backers pledged $190,352 to help bring this project to life.

Look what I found at Best Buy the other day.

I finally had a chance this weekend to run over to BestBuy and see PadPivot on the shelf. A year ago this time PadPivot was just a prototype without any clear plan on how to fund or share with the world.  It's been an incredible journey to get here and while I smile at seeing our little friend up there on the shelf, I can't help remembering all the connections we made along the way.  The pinnacle of this journey has and will remain the support and validation you gave us here on KickStarter.  Thanks again!!

      It's a great product you created and manufactured in short time.
      Congratulations - I understand the joy of seeing a product you have created in place and in places where people go everyday.
      First of many I hope!
      And yes, I use and enjoy our PadPivot. A great help to comfortable use of tablets and on occasion even phones!
      Best wishes, Roger

      Congratulations. It must be a real thrill to see something you created out in the world like that. I love using my PadPivot for both my iPad and my Kindle. It even makes a nice support for my sketch pad.
