We Designed XiStera to do everything your iPhone 5 can't.

XiStera is made from A semi hard shiny rubber material called TPV Santoprene.  It is recyclable and very friendly where it comes in contact with your iPhone 5.

We really appreciate all of the support from out backers on the XiStera Project.

Thanks!

Team XiStera

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges in this type of project because it's never been made before. We made plenty of mistakes on our last project which is now getting close to fulfillment. Through that experience we have changed our manufacturer and established a relationship with a supplier that has already engineered and quoted the time table and cost for the XiStera project. We know how to set expectations much better now based on their execution of schedules.

That being said there will always be potential delays and unforeseen difficulties that come up with a new product. Our estimated delivery dates have some cushion based on that possibility, but they are estimated.

We will be giving our best effort to exceed expectations and deliver your XiStera in a timely manner.

FAQ

  • XiStera is currently made to work with the naked iPhone 5. We have had significant interest in a case version so our design team is looking at it.

    Last updated:
  • XiStera is currently funded for the iPhone 5. If this project get to a certain level it's possible we will add a stretch goal for the iPhone 4/4S. It will double the cost of the project but we love the 4/4S.

    Last updated:
  • NO. XiStera will be over molded with a shiny and rigid hard rubber call TPV. Metal will never touch your iPhone and the TPV material could never scratch your glass or casing.
