ABOUT

Hello, and thank you for visiting my Kickstarter for the Podhugger!

I bought my first set of Airpods in November of 2018, and found myself always rummaging through my bag or pockets for my Airpods whenever I needed them.   I wanted a holder that was snug and secure and could hold my Airpods a quick draw away whenever I needed them. Unhappy with the options available on the market, the idea of the Podhugger was born!

DESIGN

The concept behind the Podhugger is simple.  On the back is a reusable  sticky back adhesive.  There are many uses for the Podhugger, examples include: back of your phone, car, nightstand, laptop, or any hard, smooth surface.  The adhesive is reusable and if it loses its adhesiveness, just clean with water and let dry, and it becomes sticky again.  

ANATOMY

The design of the Podhugger has three finger grooves for easy gripping.  The holders for the Airpods have been measured to fit the earbuds perfectly and will keep them snug and secure.

Measurements of the Podhugger come in at a diameter of 51mm (2"), and a thickness of 9.2mm (about 1/3").  We tried to make it as small as possible for maximum portability.  See the concept protoype below for a size comparison to a quarter dollar. It's super thin, and fits in your pocket easily.  It currently comes in five (5) colors, in a silicone body. 

COLORS 

Five colors available  for the Podhugger. 

Risks and challenges

We have found a manufacturer that will produce the Podhugger. There will be some fine-tuning as the silicone mold is made, which is a normal part of the process. We do not foresee any huge issues with production.

We have gone through the protoyping phase with 3D prints and have tested the product and are confident we can deliver in the specified time frame!

We will be sure to keep our backers abreast of the timeline and expectations as we go into production.
