About this project
The Monti (pronounced Mon-tee) was originally conceived for my own personal use. I've been on Kickstarter for a while funding projects I loved but I couldn't help but think about how they could be improved. I had an issue with some mounts because you have to take off your case and risk your iDevice. I wanted a case I could keep on and still use to mount my device but that wasn't enough.
I wanted it to mount everywhere I needed it, and without screwing on a bunch of attachments. I created a mount that just SNAPS in place.
I made an iPhone mount for myself, I attached a piece which I had made to use it as a stand, tripod mount and hook and now my iPhone can mount wherever I want but it's just a prototype. I'm pretty good with Auto-CAD so I created what would be the perfect mount for me. At this point I've come up with quite a few attachments such as a simple stand/tripod mount, suction mount and 90 degree attachment for both Tablets and Smartphones and a Car Mount for the Tablets which I'd like to share with the world but to cover my expenses I need some help.
After a bit of showing off my project I've realized that quite a few smart-phones have flat backs too. A lot of people have already asked what they need to do to get their hands on one. Being just an attachment for a case Monti-mini can be placed on any smart-phone or small tablet case with a flat back and although Monti was made for the iPad 2 it can be placed on any large tablet with at least 5.5x4 inches (14cm x 10cm) of flat space on the back (for reference fold a piece of computer paper in half twice, length + height-wise and place it against the back of your device).
With this project I'd like to raise enough just to cover the other 1/2 of the expenses so I can make it past the prototyping stages and bring my innovation to the world.In other words, I have all my ducks in a row. I have the milled prototypes (in the video) and have verified the dimensions etc. I will be moving onto the sample plastic injection (this month) and will be sending out a few of them for testing to some techie tweeple (Twitter People) and bloggers and if my Kickstarter project is successful then to some of my Backers as well.
Please help give my project that Kickstart into production whether it be by word of mouth, sharing it with your friends or becoming a backer
(P.S. to sweeten the deal I'll be ordering covers for the most popular devices and shipping them with Monti so you wont have to use or buy your own)
Thanks for checking out my project and Have A Wonderful Day !!!
Monti has a custom cut, strong adhesive and is stuck on the back of the case for your device.
I'm solving the issue with iDevice mounts that either fail to protect your device or must be removed to take your device with you
Definitely the Car Mount, I've seen a few solutions for mounting an iPad in the car but none of them as simple to set up or remove your device from
(The fridge mount is a huge plus too)
I am working with my injection molders to get all of the Smart Cover Colors and I am also open to suggestions but thus far the Colors are
Black, Navy, Red, Tan, Cream, Lime Green, Gray, Pink, Light Blue, Yellow and White
Monti will work on any smartphone with a flat area in the back of a 2" (5cm) circle which covers almost all smartphones with flat backs
Monti will work on any tablet with a flat area of 4" (10cm) x 5.5" (14cm) which covers 95% of tablets with flat backs.If your tablet is much smaller than that you can probably just get the smartphone Monti anyways.
Monti works in any vehicle
I was the go-to-guy back home in the Virgin Islands for iPhone repairs and Jailbreaking, someone called me it, the name caught on and next thing you know it was on my business cards
