Latest Updates from Our Project:

Pocket Tripod PRO - First Production Samples
almost 3 years ago – Tue, Jan 31, 2017 at 11:20:03 PM

We're super happy to finally get our hands on the first samples of the Pocket Tripod PRO, since its tooling began less than 3 months ago. Have a look at the video below for a close-up look. 

 

Rework and Adjustments

Our manufacturer has performed their first trial run, and sent us the samples last week. Overall, the components are very well made but do require further fine-tuning for correct fit and function. Creating tools for plastic injection molding is an iterative process.  

All of the adjustments are straightforward, and our manufacturer already has experience doing them from the original Pocket Tripod. The profile of the carbon fiber skeleton also needs to be modified to improve the flow of plastic, as well as to adjust for the shrinkage.

New expected ship date

Our initial plan was to manufacture all of our inventory before the Chinese New Year and have them sent to us for packaging and shipping. But our manufacturer needs more time to make the necessary adjustments to the mold. At the same time, our carbon fiber supplier will be remaking the skeletons. Our new expected ship date is April 28th. Here's how far we've come, and what's still left to do. Click the image below to enlarge. 

 

Surveys

Big thanks to everyone who's answered the BackerKit surveys. If you haven't received it yet, please let our support staff know. We'll keep the surveys open until the end of March so that you can update your selection or address if you move or change your device. We realize that waiting for our new ship date may not be an option for some of our backers. That's why we have a no questions asked refund policy. Simply contact our support staff, and we will be more than happy to assist you. (Support@Pocket-Tripod.com)  

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to manufacture the best product that we can.

Warm regards,
Your friends at Geometrical

Quick notes on the surveys
almost 3 years ago – Fri, Jan 06, 2017 at 11:01:25 PM

The surveys were sent out 3 days ago, and so far 60% of backers have completed them. Thank you! Just a couple of things to note:

You can change your answers 

As long as we haven't closed the survey, you can easily make changes to your product selection, add-ons, and even your address. Enter your email on the survey recovery page and you will receive a link back to your survey. 

Which "Device Code" to use

Please copy/paste the Device Code corresponding to the recommended size for your phone + case combination. 

For example: if you have an iPhone 7 with an Apple Silicone Case, the Device code is (APPL-iP7-Silicone-Case) and the recommended size is 8.5 mm. 

 

Entering the device code isn't mandatory for us to send your reward. But knowing what phone and case combination you have can be very helpful for troubleshooting in case of compatibility issues. Regardless of what Device Code you've entered, we will ship the Pocket Tripod PRO size/color you've picked in the next question. 

___________________________________________________________________

As always, we're more than happy to help if you're not sure about something. You can send us an email to (Support@Pocket-Tripod.com) or just chat with us during normal business hours (PST).

Surveys are out!
almost 3 years ago – Tue, Jan 03, 2017 at 09:24:28 PM

Thank you for making our project a reality! It's been 3 months since we've announced our decision to make the all-new Pocket Tripod PRO. After overshooting our funding goal by over 3000%, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to implement all the user feedback we have received from our past customers. For backers who could not wait, we've had a no-questions-asked refund policy and also the option to buy the original 2016 Pocket Tripod from our store, at the same price they paid on Kickstarter (coupon: KS2016PTNOW).

Our new production molds are nearly complete. Now we just need to know how many of each color and size to make.

BackerKit Survey

We have to find out what Pocket Tripod PRO size you need, and where we need to ship them. To collect this information, we (GEOMETRICAL) have sent you a survey invitation email with the subject: "Response Needed -- Get your reward for Pocket Tripod | The only phone tripod you need."

The email contains a personalized link to the Kickstarter fulfillment survey. The survey is powered by BackerKit (see below for details), and it's where you will choose your reward preferences (i.e. Size, Color), and enter your shipping address. Also, if you are interested in getting additional Pocket Tripod PROs, or need extra adapters, you can do so easily on BackerKit's Add-ons page.

 

Step by step support

Each step of the survey has detailed instructions. But if you need assistance at any stage, we'll be more than happy to help. If you have any general questions about the survey, you can ask for help from BackerKit's support staff while you're on the survey page. Or if you have any product questions about the Pocket Tripod PRO, chat with us while you're on Pocket-Tripod.com. Or you can ask your question by emailing Support@Pocket-Tripod.com

Keep in mind

  • BackerKit surveys are sent to the email address you used to sign up to Kickstarter. If you used a Facebook login, the email is sent to your Facebook email. 
  • If you haven't received our survey yet, message us to let us know, and provide us with a current email address to send it to. 
  • Until we "lock down" the surveys, you can change your size/color selection, address, or add-ons. Simply return to the survey by clicking on the link you've received in the email from our BackerKit. 
  • You don't need to create a BackerKit account, but it can be helpful if you are backing multiple projects at the same time, in order to keep things organized. 

Frequently Asked Questions

I added extra to my pledge for additional items. How do I tell you what I want?
Once you answer all of the initial survey questions, you will be presented with the available Add-Ons, and BackerKit will show you your available credit. Simply select the items that you want, and click "Add to Cart". You will see your Credit Remaining balance decrease on the right hand side. If you're missing credit, you can buy more on BackerKit, and if you've over-pledged, message us, and we'll refund you that amount through Kickstarter. 

How do I know what size to pick? 
Easy, we've documented a ton of phones and cases, and listed the recommended size for each one on our device guide. On that page, we've also provided instructions in case your device isn't listed. 

Why do I have to copy/paste my phone's "device code" in the survey? 
If we know what phone + case you have, that will help us in assisting you if there are any compatibility issues. Also, if others using your device have any issues, we can proactively reach out to you and offer a solution. 

How long do I have to complete the survey?
Until we've "locked down" the survey, you can update your responses. The tentative date is January 19th. In case there are any delays, we will post a "Last call" update one week before we close the surveys. 

What if my credit card could not be processed when the campaign ended? 
When you complete the BackerKit survey, you will be prompted for payment at the end. 

We're super excited to get our hands on the new Pocket Tripod PRO and have them shipped to you.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Mold making process nearing completion
almost 3 years ago – Thu, Dec 08, 2016 at 11:16:16 PM

In our last update, we showed you how the major portions of the cavities of the mold are CNC machined. Now we're excited to show you how the fine details of the Pocket Tripod PRO are created using an EDM method. 

The final shape of each component is created with copper electrodes. Then these electrodes are used to erodes the steel through an electro-chemical process.

The fine details are created on a microscopic level. The final result is the mirror shape of the component that would be injection molded. The picture on top shows some of the electrodes used to make the cavities for the base components. Below you can see some of the dozens of intricate copper electrodes used to create the adapters. 

Our manufacturer has estimated that the EDM process should be completed next week followed by the first mold trials and validation. After that, we expect them to make a few minor adjustments to make sure all of the parts fit together correctly. We'll be giving them our production order as soon as the mold is ready.

Surveys

The surveys will be sent out along with our next update. We're aiming for next week. We've updated the new Device Guide as much as we could. There are still quite a lot of cases left but we think we've covered a large portion of the most popular ones. Let us know in the comments section below if you have any suggestions on how we can improve the device guide's usability in any way. 

"Gift Box Kit" Backers

Your reward comes with one Pocket Tripod PRO plus 10 pairs of adapters. We have 15 sizes, so initially we planned to have two size ranges: Small (5.5 mm-10.5 mm) or large (7.5 mm - 12.5 mm). But we think that you may prefer a new option instead: a mix of the most popular sizes. We've counted all of the thousands of pre-orders on our store, and noticed that 11 sizes are used by 97% of our customers. So we wanted to suggest this combination of sizes instead. With this option, you will also get a unique coupon code Inside the box to pay for the purchase and shipping of an extra pair of adapters, in case the size you need falls among the missing 3%. Let us know which option you prefer

 

Shipping

You will be providing us with your shipping details in the survey. We're working as fast as we can to prepare your rewards. As mentioned in the previous update, the PRO model which you are getting won't be shipped in time for Christmas. But if by any chance you cannot wait, you can get the regular (2016) Pocket Tripod now. See the bottom of update #16 for instructions

 

We're super excited to get our hands on the new Pocket Tripod PRO and have them shipped to you as soon as possible.

Stay tuned for more updates!
