Alt. is a true minimalist case with a mounting / handsfree solution for your home, workspace and car. For iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus
The world's most capable minimal case from mod-3. Alt is an ultra-light, protective & handsfree/multi-tasking case for iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus. Phone Protection, Handsfree Solution, Desk & Cable Organizer in One Neat Beautiful Package.
iPhone is a beautiful piece of industrial design made of glass and aluminum. It's a pleasure to hold and interact with it directly. Traditional cases mask those design features and you're no longer able to appreciate your phone's beauty. That's why we created Alt.
Alt has been designed to provide optimal protection. The outer shell is made of a high-strength polymer. The inner cushion is lined with aerospace-grade 3material and the X-shaped design helps to disperse the force of impact. The outer shell features a soft-touch, non-slip finish that improves your grip on your iPhone.
However careful you are with your iPhone, drops and knocks are inevitable. Through extensive research, we've discovered that when these accidents do occur, the corners are the most vulnerable. That’s why we have focused protection at these points, providing extensive support and protection on the corners where most damage and cracks happen.
Work & Play Handsfree
Integrate your iPhone into any work environment using Alt’s mounting system. Keep up to date with notifications, email and scheduled events without having to fiddle around looking for your phone or wrestling it out of your pocket or purse.
The car mount holds your phone securely while you drive - removing clutter from your dash or windshield. No more bulky, unwieldy windshield mounts that leave behind messy, sticky residue. The car mount clips easily to your car's A/C vent with one push and removes just as easily.
Access recipes on your iPhone in the kitchen or enjoy your favorite songs, while keeping your device safe from accidents, courtesy of your next meal.
No more randomly reaching by your bedside to turn off that morning alarm. Keep your iPhone safe and accessible for sleep music or last minute reminders for the next day. The magnetic mount can also hold your charging cable, ready to be plugged in before you nod off.
No More Scratched Screens
Alt’s corner design elevates the touchscreen from any flat surface, such as a table or desk. This feature reduces the risk of scratches or marks on the screen when placed face down.
Organize Loose Cables on Your Desktop or in Your Car
When not holding your iPhone secure, the mounts double up as cable organizers. No more looking for cables from the floor. Keep your desk and car neat and your cables ready for use where you need them.
Simply touch the end of your charging cable to the mount and it’s held firm until you need it next. No more fishing on the floor to find your cable.
Installation is a snap!
Alt's design is simple, minimalist and modern, just like your iPhone. We’ve worked tirelessly to make sure that Alt perfectly complements the iPhone it protects. Every line serves a purpose.
Easy-on, Easy-off Magnetic Mounting
At the heart of Alt is a powerful mounting system using neodymium magnets, a small but very strong type of magnet. No more clips or grips that require you to push a release button or pry open arms to release your iPhone. To mount, just place your iPhone on the magnetic mount and it will securely hold the phone in place. To release, just pull the phone away. NOTE: The magnetic system does not affect the iPhone's operation, camera, lens/flash, ApplePay, charging, or battery life.
Convenient Cable Organizer
Your Alt mount also works great as key ring holders. Actually, it can hold anything that's steel or magnetic!
Simple Installation Of Mounts On Any Surface
The wall mount can be attached to any surface: wood, metal, painted walls, even textured walls. At the back of the wall mount is a padded peel-off sticky pad. It's easy to fix onto any surface you choose. It is also easy to remove later on and leaves no residue, so no worries about leaving sticky gunk behind.
The car mount clips directly to the A/C vents in almost any car. It works on most flat type vents, and even works with many circular vent designs.
Want To Add Additional Items? No Problem!
While Kickstarter only allows backers to pledge for one reward, you can still add additional items. Here’s how to do it:
1. Choose a reward level.
2. Increase your pledge amount to match the cost of your desired Add-On item. For example, if you pledged $39 for the "STARTER SET" and want to add an extra Wall Mount ($7) and an extra Car Mount ($19), simply add $26 to your pledge amount, making the total pledge amount $65, plus shipping.
3. That’s it! You are officially a Backer of Alt case! At the end of the campaign we will send a survey to confirm color and size selections & ensure that any other additional items you’ve purchased are added to your order.
4. Have any questions? Check out the FAQ section below, or please feel free to post questions in the comments section and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Go with matching color case or contrasting color with your iPhone, or get more than one color! Have fun!
Every Alt case comes with a matching color wall mount. Each wall mount is supplied with extra sticky pads so you can move your mount if required. Please specify size (6/6s or 6 Plus/6s Plus) and color of your reward.
The car mount comes in black only and is a separate reward. We suggest you also get a 3-pack of wall mounts so you can mount the case in multiple locations, keeping your iPhone exactly where you need it, at home and work.
Where we are in the process
We have completed 3 rounds of prototypes, the latest prototypes are highly accurate and the mod-3 team have been using them in our daily routine. The next stage is to complete a test (soft) mould to ensure fit, engineering accuracy and manufacturing tolerance. After the test mould and final testing is complete, the production mould will be ordered, which takes 1-2 weeks. We have a series of advanced prototypes for the case, wall mount and car mount, which gets us very close to the final version at this time.

Risks and challenges
We are no strangers to the challenges of creating and manufacturing of a product from ground up. After our first Kickstarter campaign for RADIUS, we ran into a series of manufacturing issues that delayed the delivery of rewards to nearly one third of our backers. That experience taught us invaluable lessons and we are honored to have such patient backers who waited patiently while we ironed out production and delivery. mod-3 has taken giant leaps forward from that experience. We have matured as a company and developed strong relationships with our manufacturing partner, enabling us to offer a guaranteed delivery schedule to backers of Alt.
In the two years since the very first version of RADIUS case for iPhone 5, we have been making cases for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and the new 6s and 6s Plus versions in various styles and colors. With each iteration, the design of our cases has improved, manufacturing quality and reliability has improved and our delivery schedules have improved.
We are deeply committed to developing market leading iPhone cases and have take pride in bringing our loyal fans our new design: Alt. With a growing fan base and company maturity comes responsibility to deliver a product that lives up to and exceeds expectations.
Alt is based on the design of our first case, RADIUS, which is now a proven product, with an existing global fan base. This is a huge advantage, both from an engineering and manufacturing perspective, as we have taken all the learning from earlier designs forward to create Alt, which provides triple protection and an exquisite design.
Our biggest challenge remains manufacturing, with careful attention required to ensure that production meets the stringent quality requirements we expect from a product that comes from the mod-3 name.
To guarantee quality and delivery schedules we have chosen to work with a local manufacturing operation in the San Francisco Bay Area. This ensures that if any issues or delays occur, we can react instantly and work through solutions quickly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
