ULTIMA DRIVING AND RECORDING TEST

ULTIMA STRENGTH TEST - HOLDS 10KG! (22 pounds)

AppAdvice - "Clearly destined for greatness"

Gear Hungry - "The first to really hit the mark"

Hi and thanks for checking out my project, I hope you'll be as excited as I am knowing that finally there is a quality universal option to mount your beloved and in many cases very expensive smartphone in your car and to do it with style!

THE WORLD'S FINEST UNIVERSAL SMARTPHONE HOLDER FOR THE CAR

This has been a project in the making for over 2 years, now with a working prototype that we feel is just about ready to start moving into the manufacturing stage but we need your help to get there.

The goal was to create the best possible solution to hold a smartphone in a vehicle. It had to be very stylish in design to match todays smartphones and the interior of a car, be of a high quality build, accommodate as many different smartphones on the market as possible (mainly with the iPhone in mind to be used with or without a case) and it also had to be very easy and simple to use.

With a goal to create the world's finest, the bar had to be raised to create a universal as possible but very stylish and most importantly amazingly functional smartphone holder.

INTUITIVE TECHNOLOGY

The most exciting feature about 'Ultima' is it's intuitive holding mechanism. To open you press and hold the release button then place your phone in the holder and press in the sides till desired hold. Once you press in the holder it cannot be pushed backwards until the release button has been pressed, even if you use force it will not move backwards!

It also does not have measured increments when sliding, basically the more or less you press is dependent on exactly how much you press, giving 'Ultima' the most accurate hold to be found on any universal holder out there!

This technology also eliminates the need for any other accessory needed to mount your phone, so no need for little magnets to stick on the back of your phone, or a certain case to use just to mount your phone. I believe people want more choice, choice to change their case, or even there phone but still be able to use the same holder and not be limited.

MANUFACTURING

Due to it's mostly high grade aluminium materials and intuitive holding design, the costs to manufacture is high, with tooling costs of $40000+ and then manufacturing, assembly and delivery costs for each unit on top of that, not to mention the huge upfront cost already spent to get this far but because we believe in this product so much we will be funding the entire project ourselves which means we can pass on the savings to you to rewards our backers with an amazing price!

'Ultima' is also virtually future proof as you don't need to buy a new holder when you buy a new phone, chances are your new phone will just fit and work and look great too!

WHERE IS THE PROJECT CURRENTLY AT?

We have a fully working prototype that we are currently making small finer adjustments so will be on our final prototype run by the end of March, if all goes well we will be moving straight into tooling and manufacturing which should put us in a very good position to start delivering by June 2012.

REWARDS FOR KICKSTARTER BACKERS

For only $55 you'll receive a first production run of 'Ultima' in your choice of colours silver or black. This includes FREE shipping to the US and Australia with International pledges only $65 including FREE shipping! When released to the public, 'Ultima' will retail for $99 + shipping. 

You can pledge for as many as you like at the one low price, just simply multiply your pledge by the number of units you would like such as 3 x Ultima $55+$55+$55=$165 so your pledge amount total would be $165.

Once you make your pledge for multiple 'Ultima's' just message us with your colour choices.

LIMITED EDITION KICKSTARTER GREEN EDITION (100 ONLY)

We think it's important to show this all began from Kickstarter and was done by all of US! so we also have a special limited edition Ultima Green Edition only for Kickstarters while the campaign is running. This will not be available at retail. 

If you would like multiple 'Ultima' including the Green Edition, please select the Limited Green Edition pledge and then add your other colours choices, (silver or black) to your pledge amount.

PASSION FOR DESIGN + PASSION FOR MUSIC

We appreciate every backer so you will also receive a copy of the music track I produced for the 'Ulitma' promo video before it's released on iTunes, you will also get a ringtone version too!
