Production Has Begun!

Posted by Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard (Creator)

Dear backers,  

We’re back from visiting our manufacturer and we’re excited to let you know that production is finally underway. During the last few days at the factory we had a chance to film the production process and we’ve put together a short video for you to see.


Why tooling has taken this long

Once we visited the factory, we realized that most of our manufacturer’s staff who had worked on making the first Pocket Tripod (2013) were no longer with the company. So the new engineers and mold builders who were making the current molds were not familiar with the intricacies of the product and were making mistakes, which caused delays due to rework. Of course, the staff change wasn’t something that they informed us about before we gave them the project.

It took us over 5 weeks of working with the manufacturer to identify and resolve the issues. We also used this opportunity to train the new staff and ensure that they fully understand our requirements and standards.

The injection molding process itself also required troubleshooting and optimization. The parts are incredibly sensitive to injection parameters, as well as the material composition. So we experimented with an exhaustive range of materials and settings to make sure that we’re getting perfectly consistent results.

Production status

We’ve already begun producing the components and will begin assembly and packaging as soon as we have enough build-up of parts. Making the adapters is especially time consuming, since each part needs to go through a secondary process to mold the soft-touch TPU over it. So we don’t want to promise any exact dates at the moment, as we can’t know for sure until each phase is complete. But our best estimate is that we should be at the packaging and shipping phase in four weeks.

Changes to your details  

In the meantime, we’ll be keeping BackerKit open until we start shipping. If you need to make changes to your shipping address, or size/color selection, please click the link below. For any other requests, please send us a private message or email our support team. (  

Update my details ->

As always, thank you for your continued support. We’re excited to get the rewards shipped as soon as possible. We’ll be keeping you updated as we complete each milestone.

      We are now TWO MONTHS down the track from the last update ..... where is our product !!!

    2. Joe Lippeatt on

      This is the kind of product that destroys the Kickstarter ecosystem by over promising, taking our money, and never delivering. The video showing the assembly line employees taking their time putting the product together in a leisurely manner is proof of how badly this project has been mismanaged. After my 3rd kickstarter loss, I will stop supporting projects managed by people with great marketing skills, but zero manufacturing experience.

      I guess I should get in line with everyone else that is wondering where my reward is? Last update was July 28th 2017, with "...begun producing the components...". I understand things can go wrong. Costs can get out of control, but failing you keep your backers in to loop is not an acceptable why to handle it. Update, ship product or refund, pick one!

      I've got to give it to you guys. You made $178,000 for a fake piece of plastic. BRAVO on scamming 5,887 people!! I bet your mamas are proud of you. You suck!!!

      So are we scammed?

      How do I contact you for a refund? I have been through 2 phones already and I have another stand. Don't need this item at this point. Can you please post a link or email address or something?

    9. Emily King on

      Are we ever getting the product or have we been scammed? I have backed a TON of projects on Kickstarter and this is the only one I have never received. Unacceptable.

      Well, been waiting for your product for a long time now and I see I'm not the only one that is tired of waiting... Starting to wonder if I'll ever get it... One thing's for sure, I won't be backing any of you guys again. You had your chance and blew it.

    11. Emily H McAllister on

      I, too, am wondering it I will ever receive my product.

      Hey guys. When is "Update #25" going to come out, so that you can admit that you're a bunch of thieves with no intentions of ever shipping us a product?? I mean, seriously, your making a piece of freaking plastic!! This should have been done a year ago!

      Pocket tripod - 24 updates in 15 months and massively delayed, sketchy information.

      Standeazy -

      23 updates in four months, lots of information and communication.

      Which project do think I am happier with?

      This is my last kickstart. Good ideas that take forevvvvvvver to come to fruition. Coin(bankrupt), Hidrate Spark(just an expensive water bottle), now Pocket Tripod(how many years has it been). Wow

      @1 - the prior units did not take this long to produce...

    25. Chris Singshinsuk on

      Man. You guys are always "excited" to inform us backers everytime you post an update. Its been too long.

      @Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard See? How difficult it is to answer your backers? You only exist because of us. Please, keep us updated!

    27. Missing avatar


      To the backers - You guys are seriously asking for a refund. Yes its been long but this sort of production is complex. The smaller the parts even more complex!

      I seriously can't wait for this! It's gonna be awesome. Watch the video, supercool!

      Can you understand why people are sceptical and/or confused when you posted this five months ago:

      "We're super happy to finally get our hands on the first samples of the Pocket Tripod PRO, since its tooling began less than 3 months ago. Have a look at the video below for a close-up look."

      Five months ago you got the first samples which was three months after tooling began.

      Good to know the project still alive! Cheer

      @Richard Olivas, thanks for seeing the bright side of things :-). In regards to changing your phone, the main advantage of the new Pocket Tripod PRO over the previous models is that it has got a universal opening shape, and not designed for any specific phone. So as long as you know the thickness of your new phone you should be good to go.

      @Rachel Diane Childers, we completely understand. Please send us a private message if you need to cancel your order for any reason.

    32. Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard 2-time creator on

      @Jackson Yuen, thank you! So are we. Any delays are quite taxing on us as well, and we can't wait to see all the rewards shipped.

    33. Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard 2-time creator on

      @Jill Higgins, today was the first time that we've announced that we have started production.

    34. Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard 2-time creator on

      @Sandeep patel, yes you certainly can leave your selection open until you're ready. Please make sure your selection on BackerKit is left as blank or "unknown".

      I might have ANOTHER new phone by the time this actually comes out. :( I was so excited about this at first. It was supposed to be a Christmas present. Maybe it still can be. hahahaha!!!

    36. Rachel Diane Childers on

      This is nuts!!! I just want a refund. I lost interest in this product over half a year ago. You missed the window. Better options are already out in the market.

      Can I leave my status open - new iPhone is out in sept/October
      I'd like to wait for that as I'll be most likely upgrading
      So I'd rather have the tripod for my new phone not for my current phone

    41. Geometrical Inc. & Rambod Radmard 2-time creator on

      Hey Pedro, our packaging is already produced and ready to go. We're just waiting for the product to place it in the packaging and ship to our distribution centers.
