The severely tested: CRUSHPROOF, WATERPROOF, SHOCKPROOF, DIRTPROOF and 100% MADE IN ITALY

Hi everyone, I am back here!
We are trying again with a 50% lower goal, this is possible thanks to an Italian business angel.

This is amazing!
I would like to give special thanks to the backers who helped me.

The dark case - £59

Designed to fit all laptops with screen sizes between 12" to 18"
    In production, the velcro backed central strap will hold your laptop securely in place. Also, high density strips of foam attached to the inside of the case will add further stability by sandwiching the laptop securely but gently in the case. Even the thinnest laptops will be safe inside the case.
    We have patented a way to fix the laptops into ViVAX, I could not put images and demonstrations for the safety of our patent.

The safety orange case - £59

Laptop case + handy backpack carrying system - £85

Using the bicycle?

Traveling a long distance with a shoulder bag?

Consider using the shoulder harness to make your journey easier. Using the shoulder harness to convert a shoulder bag into a backpack keeps your hands free to deal with airline tickets, identification, payments and anything else while traveling. You are also able to drive your motorcycle or scooter while having the case securely strapped to your back.

The polyformes backpack carrying system is extremely handy because it allows you to work hands-free. Made from a robust tear-resistant fabric, it has two very comfortable padded shoulder straps that leave you absolute freedom to perform tasks that might otherwise have been impossible.

The Case

The Laptop cases are 100% Made in Italy and are the most innovative waterproof cases on the market.

All of our cases are watertight, waterproof, sandproof, dustproof and able to withstand harsh environments and shocks.

These are our superior features:

  • Made of Copolymer Polypropylene compound
  • Waterproof, resistant to chemicals, humidity, dust
  • Resistant to harsh temperatures
  • 100% made in Italy: Italian design and proven functionality
  • First to achieve the new military standard qualifications

Technology

The computer case is made up of two fundamental parts: a waterproof external shell and a shockproof techno-polymer interior.

The shell

The shell is of military origin; these cases are used by armies all over the world for the transport of sensitive material and equipment in all kinds of climatic conditions.

External polymer

The molecular structure of the external polymer utilized (polypropylene, similar to that used in crash helmets) is very strong, and has passed strenuous force tests under a variety of conditions. The design of the reinforcements make his shell crushproof, waterproof, shockproof and mudproof.

Poron XRD

The interior is lined with a shockproof techno-polymer, Poron XRD which absorbs more than 90% of kinetic energy, guaranteeing the most complete protection against impact and any type of shock and providing performance never before attained.

Neoseal

Finally, the external seal in Neoseal rubber, conforming to the strictest NATO standards (Ingress Protection 67) and previously utilized only in high performance tires, guarantees that the case is absolutely waterproof and unsinkable.

Italian Design

The design of this computer case is based on perfect equilibrium between maximum impact protection and the harmony of its proportions. To this end the surfaces have been sculptured thanks to the synergy between engineers and designers. This collaboration has produced an original and exclusive design, and a unique fusion of technology and elegance, an essential requisite.

Performance

  • Hermetically sealed
  • Sand-proof and dust-proof
  • Crush-proof
  • Resistant to corrosives
  • Resistant to extreme temperatures
  • Waterproof

Titanium alloy pins

We utilize titanium elements for the pins to make the case as strong as possible. A metallic element, titanium is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is an incredibly strong metal.

The Revolution: Poron XRD

So how does PORON XRD™ protection work?

Like all PORON microcellular products, PORON XRD™ technology is open cell, breathable and is easily customized and incorporated in a variety of designs. The XRD protection difference is especially apparent at high speed impact. The soft contouring material instantly dissipates force upon impact – absorbing up to 90% of energy at high speed impact.

TECHNOLOGY INSIDE

Specially designed to utilize the natural behavior of polymers to its advantage. Maintains all the standard PORON cushioning properties that you’ve come to rely on: open cell-breathable technology, excellent compression-set resistance, antifungal and does not contain latex, PVCs VOC, or heavy metals.

PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE

Absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90 percent of energy when impacted at high strain rates, providing superior impact absorption. Reliable protection that’s there when you need it. Consistent repeated impact absorption for dependable performance throughout the life of the product.

Poron XRD material gets its softness when at rest while above the “glass transition temperature” (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane momentarily "freezes" - like water freezing into ice. When this happens, the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that shields the body from impact better than other protective foams currently available. On the measure that matters most – absorbing more impact energy at higher speeds – we kill the competition. Need we say more?

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

One of the biggest challenges we will face will be manufacturing a strong, high-quality steel mold to be used in the production of the cases. Creating a mold is very complicated, and has two steps: the first is to create a graphite model of the shell of the case. The creation of this model is very time intensive. However, to overcome this obstacle, we have partnered up with a sophisticated, professional producer of this type of product. The second is to use a method of Electrical discharge machining, EDM, that uses sparks of electricity to form a precise steel mold from the graphite model. This will ensure that we have a high-quality, precise, durable and functional centerpiece to our production process. This will allow us to achieve a very high product quality from the outset.
