We didn’t want to miss out on the Kickstarter fun — all the cool kids are doing it —so we’re excited to announce that our very first Kickstarter project is now live. We’re asking for pledges to complete the prototype for a product everyone here is buzzing about: the AT-ST Video Stand for iPhone. Like many IPEVO products, AT-ST started as the solution to a problem: shooting video with the iPhone. Our favorite phone is capable of great video capture, but often the quality suffers because of handheld shakiness or just plain bad angles, especially when you’re trying to capture yourself. We tried a few of the tripod stands out there, but were unimpressed. These stands are rigid and inflexible, and you’re often stuck with one height and one angle.
Many more details about the stand are on the Kickstarter page. Suffice to say, we took a cue from our document cameras, and the plan is to give AT-ST a multi-jointed swing arm that frees up the phone to be easily posed in any direction and at any height. A really easy mechanism to take the phone in and out, as well as a cord clip to keep the charge cord out of the way, are two more smart features.
We’re designing the AT-ST to be the best iPhone stand out there — and this time out, we’re asking the Kickstarter community to share their enthusiasm and their pledges so we can continue the prototyping and concept phase and begin actually making excellent stands.
So please, help us bring the AT-ST Video Stand to life by visiting the page and offering your support. This is a great opportunity to get in on the “ground floor” and snag your very own stand for just a $29 pledge, with other great rewards available.
