Latest Updates from Our Project:

Manufacturing of the mold is under way
about 3 years ago – Sat, Nov 12, 2016 at 10:08:42 PM

We're excited to let you know that we've begun the mold making process. 

 

The steel was heat treated first before the CNC machining began last week. After the major components are cut out, the fine details will be made through an EDM process

In parallel to that, we also started CNC cutting the carbon fiber skeletons that will be embedded in the legs of the Pocket Tripod PRO

 

Expected Shipping Date 

Our manufacturer's best estimate is still mid-December. That being said, we don't recommend gifting the Pocket Tripod PRO for the holidays, since factors such as transit time, packaging, fulfillment, and even production snags can push the delivery time past the 24th of December. Our policy is to be transparent about our progress, and we'll keep you updated as we get closer to the ship date. 

We understand that some backers absolutely need their Pocket Tripod before the holidays. If so, the 2016 Pocket Tripod is available for purchase now instead of waiting for the Pocket Tripod PRO. We're matching the price of the 2016 Pocket Tripod to our Kickstarter price for those who can't wait for the PRO model. 

Here's how to get the 2016 model: 

1- Go to our store 
2- Find your device
3- Click on the recommended size
4- Add to cart the regular model (not PRO)
5- At checkout, enter this coupon code: KS2016PTNOW

**  Message us to let us know if you need to cancel your Kickstarter pledge  

PS: The coupon code will be valid until we ship the Pocket Tripod PRO. Feel free to share it with your friends. 

We're very excited to get our hands on the Pocket Tripod PRO and have them shipped to you as soon as possible. The surveys are still being prepared as we continue to test more devices and cases. 

Stay tuned for more updates!

Hands on with the iPhone 7 Plus
about 3 years ago – Fri, Oct 28, 2016 at 07:43:11 PM

We've been busy gathering as much data as possible about the compatibility of the phones and cases that many of you have suggested to us. We thought that you'd like to see how well the Apple iPhone 7 Plus works with the Pocket Tripod. So we made a video about it for you. 

TL;DR

-iPhone 7 Plus works perfectly with the 7.0 mm Pocket Tripod
-The iPhone 7 Plus Silicone Case works great with the 8.5 mm
-The Jet Black is perfectly safe and doesn't get scratched by the Pocket Tripod

You'll also see a sneak preview of the Pocket Tripod PRO prototypes at the end of the video. Plus, we'll show you how the packaging looks like for the regular (single unit) Pocket Tripods. We're still working on the Gift Box's packaging and will show that to you as soon as it's ready.

Android Phones

Unlike iPhones, there are so many different Android phones, and some can be hard to find. But thanks to many of you who've made suggestions, at least we have a narrowed-down list to start with. We've bought display models (replicas) of many of the phones on the list, but some are difficult to come by. Here are the phones that we do and don't have.

 

If you find any of the replicas that we need online (ex: eBay), please send us a link in a private message so that we can buy it and test it for compatibility. We're still working on the surveys, and it's our priority to send it out as soon as possible. There will be a production status report in the next update. 

Stay tuned for more updates,

Design of the production mold is underway
about 3 years ago – Wed, Oct 19, 2016 at 10:45:06 PM

We had our kick-off meeting with our manufacturer last week and went over all the details of the Pocket Tripod PRO design. We made some slight changes to the design to improve the Pocket Tripod PRO's durability and manufacturability. The one thing that you will notice is that we've removed the "Flex Slits", which could be seen in our previous update. After testing 3D printed prototypes, we found out that this feature doesn't add a significant enough benefit, and poses a risk of defects during the molding process. Below is how the final design looks. We hope you like it. 

 

On Monday our manufacturer's engineers started designing the mold and will begin the tooling process immediately after that's complete. 

Surveys

The bulk of the survey is complete. Right now we're testing many of the cases and phones that were sent to us, and are updating the device guide. Now that the product design is complete, our team's first priority is to get the surveys prepared and sent out to everyone. 

Stay tuned for more updates,

iPhone 7 Pocket Tripod
about 3 years ago – Mon, Sep 12, 2016 at 09:25:13 PM

As you surely know, the much anticipated iPhone 7 was announced last week. It seems that Apple is doubling down their efforts to turn the iPhone into a serious photography camera. For example, with an improved f/1.8 aperture, RAW support, and a dual camera on the iPhone 7 Plus. Luckily for us, we'll have world's most compact and capable tripod to go with this camera. 

 

iPhone 7 Compatibility

To the relief of many, the new iPhones have the same exact dimensions as the previous iPhone 6S/6S Plus. So this makes our job a little easier in determining the best fit for each case model since the dimensions will be the same as before. Of course the bare iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will also work just as great as the already-proven iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. 

According to MKBHD the Jet Black model is prone to scratches. The good news is that if you decide to use it bare, the new Pocket Tripod will be perfectly safe since the contact zones will be cushioned by rubberized adapters. 

Testing New Design Improvements

We're still in the process of testing the feasibility of a few design improvements. These tests involve high-resolution 3D printed components, modifying the old mold and also trying various materials. Last week we tested TPU as a candidate for the rubberized adapters. Molding TPU requires very specific conditions, and our first test did not result in ideal properties. We've consulted the material supplier and will be doing a second test this week with improved parameters, and expect to get much better results this time. 

In parallel, we're also performing feasibility tests for other features and will share the details with you once we have positive results. 

Surveys

The surveys will be sent out as soon as all the design improvements are finalized, and as we start preparing for production. 

In the meantime, we hope to catalog the compatibility as many phone and case models as possible, in order to minimize any guess work for you. So far we've received samples from Huawei (Nexus 6P), as well as cases from Caseology, Loopy, Caudabe, OlloClip, Moment, jimmyCASE, Otterbox, Lifeproof, Elago, Spigen, Lunatik, Distil Union, and RhinoShield.

There are still a few more devices and cases that we'd like to test for you. If you see your phone model or case brand below, please help us borrow samples by clicking their link.

More Design Improvements
about 3 years ago – Wed, Aug 31, 2016 at 12:18:49 AM

When you backed our project, our plan was to manufacture the Pocket Tripod using our existing mold. Our $6,000 goal was meant to pay for the minimum cost of production of all the new sizes, but with your help and backers on Indiegogo we were able to raise over $185,000. So we've decided to use this money to invest in a new mold and improve a few features about the Pocket Tripod. We're using our existing mold to test these features before finalizing the design for the new mold. 

In our last update, we unlocked the 190K stretch goal. As a result, all backers will now receive their Pocket Tripod with rubberized adapters for a more secure fit. Since then, we've been busy testing a few material choices for the rubberized part. Our initial tests were done with a TPE material which performed very well. But we have a hunch that TPU would be an even better candidate. You may be familiar with TPU as the material used in many high-quality phone cases, which is quite durable and has a great surface finish. 

We've ordered material samples for a very specialized TPU from a supplier in Germany. As soon as we test it and have the results, we'll post an update and share them with you. 

Besides the rubberized adapters, there is another upgrade that we are working on as well which we think that you will love. This one, however, has proven to be quite challenging to implement. We've already performed two feasibility tests before investing in the new mold, and we hope to see successful results in a 3rd test which is scheduled for next week. We'll reveal the feature and share the results with you as soon as the tests are complete. 

Surveys

Many backers have asked us about the surveys so that they can provide their shipping address and choice of color and size. We're humbled by your enthusiasm and are also excited to do send the surveys to you. Rest assured that we will send out the surveys before the production begins. But the sooner we send it, the higher the chance of having outdated responses will be in regards to the shipping addresses and phone/case models. Also, until we've finalized the material for the rubberized adapters, there is a possibility that the recommended size would change, depending on the material's flexibility. We hope you can hang in there just a little while longer until we finalize the design and begin the mold manufacturing before sending out the surveys.

Testing Samples

We'd like to thanks so many of you who have helped us borrow samples by tweeting to your phone/case manufacturers. So far we've received samples from Huawei (Nexus 6P), as well as cases from Caseology, LoopyCaudabeOlloClip, Moment, jimmyCASE, Otterbox, Lifeproof, Elago, Spigen, Lunatik, Distil Union, and RhinoShield.
