How will you use your uCast?
What is the uCast?
uCast is a magnetic mount that allows you to attach your phone to nearly anything around you. It can also be used as a hands-free chest mount for your phone or GoPro.
How do I use it?
Wear the uCast (patent pending) around your neck, under your shirt and attach your phone or action camera to it.
Use the back magnet to attach it to the metal around you
How does it work?
The uCast uses an ultra strong neodymium magnet that magnetically connects to your phone via a thin metal plate that sticks to the back of your phone or GoPro. The magnet connects to metal objects and the lanyard has a detachable buckle that makes it easy to tie around trees, pillars, and other non-metal objects.
Most phone to body cameras use a harness that is worn over clothing which can be hard to take on/off and uncomfortable to wear and move around in. The uCast is magnet based and worn under clothing offering a clean look and an almost magical floating appearance.
Where can I use the uCast?
We've used it at sports parks, the gym, car, hiking, biking, and concerts. We took it to Japan and it was the perfect travel accessory to shoot hands-free photos and videos. The possibilities are endless.
Will a magnet erase the data on my phone?
No. Magnets only affect devices that use magnetic storage media like hard drives or floppy disks. Smartphones and tablets like the iPhone and iPad other cell phones use flash memory and an LCD display, which are not affected by magnetic fields.
Will it hurt my battery?
No, lithium ion batteries are not affected by magnets.
Thank you so much for backing the uCast and helping us make it a reality.
We're two brothers with a passion for designing cool things that make life more fun. Our mission is to design fast, focus on what matters most to our customer, and keep our overhead low so we can offer you a great product at an affordable price.
Where are you in the process?
We've spent the past 2 years developing prototypes and testing them in different environments. We have put the finishing touches on the uCast design and we are now finalizing details with our manufacturers. Our Kickstarter Campaign will allow us to fund the production molds and assemble a quality product that we know you and your phone will love.

To our international backers outside the U.S. - Thank you for your support. Any VAT or Duties that are due are the responsibility of each backer to pay. We will ship USPS first Class to backers who purchase 1 or 2 uCast’s and USPS priority international shipping to those purchasing more than 5. Unfortunately, overseas shipping rates are too high for us to offer free shipping; the shipping rates have been pre-calculated and you are only being charged USPS actual rates and handling.
Thank you again for your support,
Alex and David
