About

Over a year ago it became my mission to change the way products are designed and made. I dedicated my career to this and started TRTLBOT. We at TRTLBOT are a small team of artists, thinkers, and engineers who invent eco-friendly multifunctional accessories that are made in the USA.  We are dedicated to improving the environment and to social responsibility.

We believe being eco-friendly is about buying recycled products, being locally made, and doing more with less.

Donation & Pledge funding will be utilized to ensure a successful launch. We will begin manufacturing of The Shell for iPad 2 in early November.

Please share this page with your friends and donate now to help us continue our mission!
