KADi Creative are offering special Kickstarter rewards with retail prices set to be RRP $65 AUD
The Macbook only has one USB port? What's USB Type-C? Don't want to buy an expensive Apple adapter that kills the vibe of your new Macbook, especially with its ultra portability?
KADi is the lifesaver to Apple's new Macbook and the issue of its singular port.
The KADi Port's minimalist approach to design has one goal; to assist those who use a Macbook, giving them only the ports they need, not every one available.
When was the last time you used 4 USB's at once? Or even 2? And with an abundance of mini display port adapters already available, why waste space by having an HDMI port AND a VGA port. With a lot of technologies not having USB-C capabilities yet, KADi Port is bridging the gap while the rest of the world catches up, so you don't have to sacrifice being able to charge your laptop and phone simultaneously.
When clipped in to Macbook, KADi Port provides:
2 x USB Type-C
1 x USB 3.0 AND 1 x Mini Display Port
Portability is paramount in the Macbooks design, our in depth research came to the conclusion that this is the essential product for anyone who has purchased or is considering purchasing the new Macbook.
With its polymer frame and soft matte black finish, The KADi Port has been designed to blend seamlessly to the contours of the new Macbook, providing an extension to its aesthetics. A minimal length of 6.5cm and its lightweight frame, The KADi Port makes it a truly transportable accessory. No extra cords, no tangling and fiddling around. Just clip and go.
From the inception of the idea in early March, The KADi Port has taken months of long nights to prototype and design due to its perfection in being seamless in the Macbook's design. We could have come up with a stand alone USB Hub in two weeks which all USB Hubs currently are, but the curving clip on design makes The KADi Port the most beautiful accessory for Macbook in the market.
But Apple has adapters already?
Instead of paying for extra adapters worth up to 10% of the Macbooks price, KADi has ensured its low cost price a testimony to the benefit it gives to Macbook users. The KADi Port also avoids turning the look of the Macbook from a seamless portable device into an octopus with the many adapters and loose cords that all other adapters offer as an alternative.
The KADi Port is not just a Macbook Accessory, it's a Macbook Essential.
Risks and challenges
The manufacturers are awaiting funding to begin mass production, circuit boards, port holes and dimensions have been cleared by the engineers and manufacturing team as they await the signal to begin functional prototyping. We at KADi feel we have this solution for Apple and its Macbook users, we just need your help to make this happen.
Production promises cannot be made understandably as complications may occur, however we will persist to see the manufacturing process happen as quickly as possible. We aim to produce in under a month at the completion of the (hopefully successful!) campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
