About

The Phone Tool Story:

The Clix-System is a smart phone and tablet solution that makes your phone transform into a new gizmo every day.   The illustration below describes how our system is in a fully assembled state.

The Ultimate Mobile Computing Frame System
The Ultimate Mobile Computing Frame System

We call it The Clix-System.  Our thought is that smart phones and tablets should be able to transform into a new gizmo every day.  Your phone can now double as wallet, a survival tool, a vitamin storage compartment, and more.  We then provide a way to mount it to your motorcycle, bicycle, auto, and boat.  Your smart phone just got smarter. 

The Product:

Our standard wallet module traps your identification behind a clear window so you never have to take your purse or wallet.  Leave all that stuff behind because under the ID is your credit card, keys, and cash cargo compartments. So you need to go on a big adventure and can't leave home without your smart phone?  We have the coolest survival package for your adventure.  Compass, knife, bottle opener, screw drivers, wrenches, saws. It is the only way to go camping and hiking!

Backing Dollars:

We will begin building injection molds, yet the star of the show is a robot named Baxter.  We want to purchase this robot so he can snap parts together parts for us as they come down the conveyor line from our molding machines.  Baxter and his brothers will then insert your parts in a very cool package that we will pressure form.

We hope to convince Baxter will be programmed to sign every package that he has builds. We hope to have time to take a short video of Baxter signing your package.

The Manufacturing Plan:

Since the prototypes are done, we will start  by designing the injection packaging molds.  Estimated time (2-3 weeks).

Our Manufacturing Plan
Our Manufacturing Plan

Once that is done, we will  build aluminum molds to make sure our molded parts fit and function properly.  Estimated time (2 weeks).  We will test the product with vibration and drop testing and life-cycle testing.  If everything passes, we will mold the final product and then begin assembly.  

Our fulfillment team will  integrate a label maker into our production line to print out your order.   Information regarding quantity and color will be added to the shipping label so we know what you ordered.  Baxter will stick the label on the back of the package then we ship.   We will then email you tracking information.  Once it has arrived, we will email you to check up to make sure you are satisfied with our product.  

We have GalaxyS3 and other innovative modules on the way.  So help us reach our goal, and we will get you more Phone Tools.

Thanks  everyone at Kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

The challenges associated with this project are building all of the molds and integrating it all into a lights out manufacturing system. We want to build everything in the USA, yet we have great friends in Hong Kong that want to help if we get behind. It should take 60 days with proper funding. We have been designing injection molds and automating production lines since 1980 so we feel confident that we can deliver. We want to set up lights out production lines for each of the worlds continents. Our goal to start shipping in less than 90 days is going to push our manufacturing group. We have multiple suppliers that we have worked with in both the US and China if we start getting behind. Global rights to build manufacture. We have completed extensive patent search along with filing numerous patents in the USPTO. All images that have been purchased from www.shutterstock.com are royalty free images. All other images and computer renderings to provide color concepts are created by us. Videos and animations have been created internally. All After Effects products have been purchased through Drip Drip. The Phone Tool©2013 PAT. PEND.
