About


Why Loop iPad Air case?

The iPad Air is a versatile, compact, and dynamic piece of hardware. So why shouldn't your iPad case be? We use our iPad everyday. You have your iPad in the kitchen when you are cooking to view a recipe, you take your iPad when you travel on a flight to watch a movie or do work, you have your iPad play videos, music, or even just display the time- all of these are moments when you need your iPad to be easily viewed. 

Currently most iPad cases prop your iPad up, and/or protect it- until now.

The Loop iPad Air case is the first tablet case that you can hang anywhere, anytime, while protecting your iPad and giving you the angle adjustability you need.

  • Hang your iPad Air on the airplane seat in front of you, and adjust the angle while it is hanging. Now you can hang your iPad during flight, you are able to free up space on your tray table, or leave your tray table up for more leg room!

  • Hang your iPad Air on the back of a car headrest with Loop's included accessory without having to do any expensive customization to your car.

  • Other scenarios: hang on wall in the living room, workshop to watch "how to" video, nursery for kids to watch movie/listen to music. You can also hang Loop on your cubical wall at work to display family pictures, have Skype meetings, edit your calendar, etc.
and anywhere, anytime
and anywhere, anytime

About Loop iPad Air Case

Loop iPad case is the only protective case that can hang. Using a fully integrated hanging system, Loop is able to hang anywhere, anytime. The leather cover is connected to the anodize aluminum hinge to provide smooth rotation during opening/ closing.  The stainless steel cable inset into Loop's barrel hinge retracts away when not in use to provide a clean, non obtrusive look. 

Loop is not only able to easily hang, but also provides the protection you need for your iPad with it's glass filled polycarbonate injection molded shell. The protective hard shell is designed with magnetic ribbing on the back of the shell  to allow for multiple angle adjustments by using the folding leather cover. The leather cover is made from premium black or brown leather, with a pressed Mozzic logo on the front. The authentic leather cover is lined with microfiber to protect and keep your iPad screen clean.

Quality is our top priority, No compromising

The iPad is a premium, beautifully designed product that shows great attention to detail and so is Loop iPad case.  We will not cut corners.  We have spent weeks, and months testing our mockups to make sure the design is refined, intuitive, and a high quality product.  We have used premium materials to match your iPad and to ensure it is something you are proud to use.

  • The barrel hinge is anodized aluminum with bead blasted finish.
  • The hinge detail is made from stainless steel alloy for durability.
  • The retractable Loop, is a long lasting woven stainless steel cable.
  • The front cover is a premium authentic leather with microfiber lining.
  • Loop's back housing made from glass filled polycarbonate for better protection.

What your contribution will help us do

We need $110,000. To be able to produce a thoughtful product with premium materials we must work with a high quality manufacturer. This amount goes towards tooling to manufacture the parts that make up this iPad case, actual materials per unit to manufacture the case (premium leather, machined aluminum, glass filled polycarbonate), shipment after manufacturing, packaging, and all of this is for a 2,000 units minimum order. That means we have to pay for the tools to make your Loop iPad case, the materials that make up your Loop iPad case, labor related costs in both manufacturing and assembly, shipping, packaging, and all of this 2,000 times minimum.

The design story

Concept sketches
Concept sketches

 Every idea begins somewhere, and when that idea comes to mind, the first way we communicate it is in a sketch. These are some of our first ideation sketches of Loop. 

Quick mockups
Quick mockups

After our idea was solidified in basic sketching exploration we were able to create some quick mockups, and then working mock ups. With the help of 3d printing we made our very first working Loop barrel hinge with the retractable cable! 

Early mockup testing
Early mockup testing

After we created our working mockup we were able to do some user testing. From the testing we refined small details through generations of mockups until we perfected the design details, and optimized the user's interaction with Loop iPad case.

Making sure Loop works and can be dynamic with the user in many places was one of our main focuses during testing.  

3D CAD
3D CAD

After we refined the details through sketching, mock- ups, and testing we created a CAD model with accurate dimensions and mechanical features. 

2D detail drawing

Using the CAD we created 2D detailed drawings to send to suppliers, along with the CAD. From the 2D drawings and CAD our team, engineers, and an expert team in manufacturing worked together to finalize Loop. 

Schedule

We want you to have your "Loop iPad Air case" delivered before the Holiday. Here’s our plan to achieve that:

  • July/August: Working sample testing, modification and planning for the Kickstarter.
  • September: Start tooling and review, test, and modify the 1st tooling sample.
  • October:  2nd tooling sample ready, and we will test and modify to ensure the product meets all design and quality requirements. We will also prepare materials for mass production.
  • November: Mass production and shipping products to US.
  • December: Shipment processing and fulfillment

The Future of Loop

The funds raised from KickStarter will go directly to the manufacturing of the Loop iPad Air Case. Tooling for cases of other iPads will require more financial investment, which we plan to do once this KickStarter Project proves to be successful. If you do not own or plan to own an iPad Air at this time please shoot us an email and we will add you to our mailing list and let you know once other Loop Tablet Cases become available. 

A special thanks to: 

Ryan Curtis, Kristen Hall, Alex Gangi, Tyler Ried, Martha Skinner, Whisper Montgomery, Jay Montgomery, Ellen Smith, Keaton Smith, Alexander Gordon, William Gordon

Risks and challenges

We have working prototypes in hand, videos and photos seen are NOT merely renderings but real life products. We have a team of international experts with experience in product and manufacturing to ensure smooth transition from the working prototype to the shipment of the product.

However, there's no project that goes smoothly 100% and free of risk. To minimize these risks, we have invested in prototypes and testing before our project launch. We plan to start the tooling and pilot-run during KickStarter campaign to ensure products will arrive to your home before the Holiday Season.
