Padcaster is in the final stage of development for Padcaster VERSE, the first mobile-media case built to fit iPhone, Android or your favorite tablet, too. We need your help to finalize the production of this unique tool and make it available for filmmakers, video bloggers, mobile journalists photographers, drone pilots, students, teachers, coaches and content creators everywhere!
Padcaster VERSE is a rugged polycarbonate case that shares the same core design elements of the flagship original Padcaster line. The VERSE includes twelve ¼-20 threads and five integrated cold shoe slots around its frame to provide a total of seventeen easy-to-use, stable mounting points for media accessories including lights, microphones, teleprompters and more.
The center of the case houses a universal bracket that's compatible with any phone or tablet – Apple or Android – up to 5.31 inches in width, the size of an iPad mini.
While the original Padcaster, and the solutions created for the iPad family, continue to be amazing sellers, the question we get more than any other is ‘when are you making a case for the iPhone?’ We wanted to go a step further and build a case that not only fits any iPhone model, but all video-capable smartphones. To top it off, Padcaster VERSE also fits almost any small tablet, too. This sturdy, durable yet lightweight solution is compact enough to travel anywhere.

Created to transform an iPad into an all-in-one mobile production studio, the original Padcaster’s unique design adds stabilization, audio and optical upgrades that enable iPad users to shoot, edit, stream and share professional quality video content.
Founded in 2012, our company is still scrappy but growing strong!
We were honored to have run a successful Kickstarter campaign for the Padcaster Mini a few years ago and it was an amazing experience that taught us a ton of important things - one of the most important being the value of your ideas and suggestions.
This is one of the reasons we're here now.
You asked and we listened! And now, we hope you can help us achieve our funding goal to complete Padcaster VERSE's development. We promise you won't be disappointed.
Here's just a small sample of what people are making on mobile devices:
While there are some options for smartphone videography out there, most of them focus on one detail and almost all are designed for a single device. And when that device changes, you're out of luck.
Padcaster VERSE works with any phone of any make and is built to last through years of your device's upgrades and improvements. It's a mobile-media case looking for a long-term commitment.
Thanks for checking out our campaign. We hope you'll help bring the VERSE to life!

Risks and challenges
Because the original Padcaster product line has already been through the manufacturing and distribution process, we're confident that we can produce our Padcaster VERSE in a timely manner. Over the past five years we have developed a strong relationship with the manufacturers that will help bring this product to completion.
That being said, unexpected challenges will no doubt arise. We will always keep our backers informed and updated along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
