About

The SOOT Kickstand for the Kindle Fire is a modular 'acoustic' kickstand that channels sound forward toward the user.

There's a colorful acoustic (non-electric) chamber that pops on to the end of the Fire, propping the device up with the help of a removable credit card-sized stand that inserts into a slot at the rear of the chamber.

The Kickstand can be used in 3 distinct orientations while still allowing full access to the power button, charging port and headphone jack.

Portrait for reading a book...

...Landscape for watching a movie or playing games...

...and a low, tilted angle for browsing the web and typing emails.

The SOOT Kickstand plays well with elastic-cornered book-flap cases (similar to what's shown below) so there's no need to remove the chamber when you're on the go.

Simply remove the card and tuck it in the groove between the chamber and the Fire.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

The SOOT Kickstand for the Kindle Fire is just the beginning. Through funding our debut product here on Kickstarter, we'll be able to move forward fast into expanding the SOOT product line by developing more complex accessories with increased functionality.

But first we need your help.You can start by essentially pre-ordering a SOOT Kickstand via one of the contribution packages on this page.

When we meet our goal we'll move immediately into production and get it into your hands.

Check out our quick sound demo!

Here are the official colors for you to choose from. Once we're funded, you'll receive an email asking you which color(s) you'd like us to send you.

NITRATE (Limited Edition Kickstarter Green!)

SUNFIRE (First Edition)

PROPANE (First Edition)

WILDFIRE (First Edition)

Oh, and by the way... it works great as a cradle for the iPhone 4s! The angle is perfect for watching movies and FaceTime -- and you can even charge the device while it's in the dock. The fit is loose, which makes it extremely easy to remove from the cradle.

We appreciate your support. Stay in touch by visiting www.SOOT.me and liking us on our Facebook Fan Page.
