About this project
Cult of Mac - "The ledge is beautiful enough for even the most stylish kitchen"
Hi Kickstarter! Thanks for checking out my project.
What is the Ledge?
The LEDGE is a simple wall mount solution for any tablet or smartphone. It’s CNC machined from one solid piece of 6061 Aluminum, then sandblasted and anodized. These processes give it an unmatched look and feel, and contribute to its minimalistic design. The LEDGE was designed to be used with ANY tablet or smartphone, not just the iPad or iPhone! The groove is wide enough to allow these devices to fit with or without a protective case. It’s currently available in Silver or Black.
What other great features does the LEDGE have?
It can be mounted using the included 3M Command Large refill strips. This provides enough stability to hold 15lbs, and most devices are under 5lbs. Drywall anchors and screws are also included for a permanent installation with maximum stability.
When using an iPad on the LEDGE, the sound from the iPad speakers is amplified due to the redirection of the sound off of the wall.
Where can I use it?
The possibilities are endless! Since the LEDGE can mount to any wall or flat surface, its great anywhere in the home. Use for recipes in the kitchen, follow DIY tutorials in the workshop, or stream Netflix in the bedroom. It also works great next to an electrical outlet as a charging stand! The LEDGE can be mounted to drywall, wood, stainless steel, glass, ceramic, and most surfaces encountered at home and in the workplace. Where will you put it?
What rewards are available?
The LEDGE for phones is available for $25, and the LEDGE for tablets is available for $50. There are also several packages available if you wish to order in higher quantities.
The LEDGE for tablets is available in 4 anodized colors including Red, Green, Blue, and Orange. These colors will not see high volume production and only (1) of each color will be available through Kickstarter. ONLY BLUE & ORANGE STILL AVAILABLE!
How will the money be used?
The money raised from this Kickstarter campaign will be used to fund the first production run. CNC machining is an expensive process at low volumes, so I set a goal of $25,000 so I can manufacture and sell the LEDGE at a reasonable price.
Who is RNDM design?
Since my childhood I have been fascinated with design. I want to make my passion for design a career, so I decided to start RNDM design. As of now, I am the sole designer and engineer at RNDM, but will be looking to expand in the near future.
Special thanks to Alex Curry from Optic Rhythm Cinematics and Matt Stambaugh from Matt Stambaugh Media. These two great friends collaborated and helped me produce my video for Kickstarter. Contact them with any photo or video needs!
