Mobile Hang Device: supports smartphones, eReaders, and tablets

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 24, 2015

Mobile Hang Device

Short Summary

Mobile Hang is a device that allows hands-free use of your smart device while traveling.  It is also designed to double as a desk easel to hold the device for a comfortable viewing angle.  When the device is not in use, it collapses down to the size of a credit card to fit in a wallet or purse. 

There are millions of travelers every day that use their smart device while in the air.  There are other devices that can hold their smart device, but all of them are bulky. 

This device can be stored anywhere in your luggage without needing to worry about taking up any more space than a credit card. 

 What We Need & What You Get

We need enough money to create injection plastic molds to mass produce this product.

  • Bronze Level
    This may seem like a small donation, but not to us. Every pledge helps us meet our goal. You will have access to product updates as well as having your name included in an honorable mention on our website thanking you for your support.
  • Silver Level
    Bumper sticker that says “I was the first to invest in Mobile Hang !!!”, and an honorable mention on our website!
  • Gold Level
    Be the first to get the mobile hang device sent to you, with an included guarantee for life. If your Mobile hang breaks, send it back to us and we will replace it. If we create an updated design, send us your old one, and we will send you the brand new one! We will also include the bumper sticker, and an honorable mention on our website.
  • Platinum Level
    Be the first to get the mobile hang device, and send one to a friend or family member. Both will include a guarantee for life. If your Mobile hang breaks, send it back to us and we will replace it. If we create an updated design, send us your old one, and we will send you the brand new one! We will also include the bumper sticker, and an honorable mention on our website.
  • Titanium Level
    Be the first to get the mobile hang device, and send one to five friends or family members. We will gift wrap them, and you can offer a personal dedication included with the gift. We will also put your name on our special tribute web page as a Titanium contributor. All of the devices will include a guarantee for life. If any of the Mobile hang devices break, send us the broken one, and we will replace it. If we create an updated design, we will automatically send you a new one without having to send us the old one. After all, you are a Titanium contributor.

This project has several components.  First, we have to finalize the design.  The prototype has showed proof of concept.  We have already added several updated features to improve the functionality of the device.  We added some no slip pads, and some snaps to ensure the unit stays flat and closed when not in use.  We also are working on a prototype that will be a little bigger than a credit card, but will be able to accommodate a bigger tablet than just an iPad mini.   The manufacturer that we are using is located in Bristol, PA.  They helped with the final design, and created the prototype.  The prototype had to be machined by hand.  Once we reach our funding goal, we can mass produce the product.  We also welcome any suggestions from our funders.  Since the molds haven’t been created yet, it’s a perfect time to make suggestions.  The molds will take about eight weeks to create, so we are hoping to have them created by the holidays. 

 

Risks & Challenges

With every new product, there is a chance that it won’t be popular. 

Here are the risks that we have identified and our solutions:

Risk:

Knock offs, or replicas

Mitigation:

Mobile Hang is currently under Patent Pending protection.

Risk:

Mobile Hang won’t be popular

Mitigation:

Testing market with crowd funding, and test groups of frequent fliers.  So far the response has been overwhelmingly popular.

Risk:

Mitigation:

There will be a warning on the package that Mobile Hang is not responsible for damage to a mobile device. Provided the Mobile Hang is properly used, the device will be secure.

Risk:

Mobile Hang won’t make crowd funding goal

Mitigation:

We will seek outside investors.

Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:

  • Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about your campaign. Send out a tweet with the link to our crowdfunding campaign.
  • Send us an email with a suggestion, and we will try and incorporate it into the final design.
