Update on BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform Inventory



Update on 
BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform Inventory

& Some Cool Prototypes


We are in production on a new batch of BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platforms and expect to have more of all colors in-stock in the next 30 Days. We expect to have them in-stock on or around September 1, 2019.

In the meantime, I thought I would share these photos with you of eXpress Keyboard Platforms with a black custom painted Apple Keyboard and Trackpad. I had Colorware paint the Apple Keyboard and trackpad and here are some photos...Unfortunately, just after I ordered the black keyboard and trackpad Colorware discontinued their service of painting these devices :-)

We are sold out of the eXpress Keyboard Platform in Red, White and Black, and have about a dozen or so in-stock in blue. We have ordered more and expect to have them ready for shipping around the middle of June, 2019. Sorry for any inconvenice, but we expect more soon :-)


SAFE WALLET for iPhone Xs, XR, Xs Max


UPDATE: We are expecting to have the Xr, and XsMax SAFE WALLET models in-stock, ready to ship around the middle of June 2019. We don't have a shipping date yet for the Xs model, but as soon as we do we will update it here.


Update on May 7, 2019: I have been testing injection-molded production prototypes for our upcoming Xr, and XsMAX SAFE WALLET models and they are amazing!!!! If you really want a SAFE WALLET for your iPhone Xs now, scroll down this story for instructions on how to easily modify our SAFE WALLET X model to work with the Xs.




I have to say I am REALLY impressed with the upcoming SAFE WALLET models. The Xr and Xs Max are really immersive with all extra screen real estate!!!











SAFE WALLET 

for iPhone Xs, XR, Xs Max


With Apple's recent introduction of three new iPhone models, we have been exploring to create SAFE WALLET models for them. Below are updates for each new iPhone model.




SAFE WALLET for iPhone Xs





SAFE WALLET for iPhone Xs?

Unfortunately, our existing SAFE WALLET X model does NOT fit and work with the iPhone Xs. Actually, it fits in EVERY way with one exception, and this is the fact that the camera ring was elongated on the iPhone Xs, so it does not fit. We are working on updating the tool to make this fit properly.

We have had customers modify existing SAFE WALLET for iPhone X models by lightly sanding or trimming away a little bit of material at the bottom of the SAFE WALLET for iPhone X, which works perfectly. This can be done by wrapping sand paper around a wood pencil and sanding down the plastic located ONLY as the bottom of the camera ring area. If you do so, it is at your own risk, as it will void the warranty, but if it were me, I would do it carefully, and you should have no issues :-)









SAFE WALLET for iPhone Xs MAX & XR



We are working on designing SAFE WALLET models for the iPhone Xs Max as well as the iPhone XR. Below we see three photos of the first 3D printed prototype of the SAFE WALLET Xr which were posted on November 20, 2018:

The Upcoming MagicPlatform for iPad Pro


The Upcoming MagicPlatform

for iPad Pro

I saw this video on the durability of the new generation iPad Pro models, and despite being so fast and cool looking they are more fragile than ever. In the not so distant futre we will be launching the all-new MagicPlatform for iPad Pro. This all-new platform is the result of more than 8 years or R&D and will be to the iPad Pro, what the SAFE WALLET is to the iPhone! 



The MagicPlatform consists of the MagicStand and MagicCase. The MagicStand, just like our earlier model will allow you to stand up your 11" or 12.9" iPad pro at any angle in landscape from 90 degrees down to a steep typig angle of 20 degrees. It will also alow you instantly flip from landscap to portrait. 

The MagicCase for iPad pro is super protective, great-looking, and has a MagicPencil holder built in to stow-away your Apple Pencil when you are not using or charging it. Stay tuned...

The One and Only Solution



"Ice Cream Frieze"
Deborah McMillion
Mobile digital artist

Deborah recently purchased a BulletTrain Magic Pencil Holder for iPad, and she sent it this beautiful photo of it holding her Apple Pencil, along with a beautiful piece of artwork titled, "Ice Creat Frieze." Debora was a very early adopter of digital art, and she began drawing on an iPhone before Apple even launched the iPad. In her email Deborah said:

Subject: The One and Only Solution


Hello!

The magic pencil dock arrived and it works beyond perfect. It is always, now, at hand when I draw and paint on my iPad Pro 10.5"! I’ve had sleeves, elastic sleeves, a case with a sleeve, side stands, and wood snap case. With the exception of the elastic sleeve (for travel), I just sold or gave away. None of them helped WHILE painting. So thank you-I’ll pass the word along to the community.

Cheers, 

Deborah McMillion

I have been testing first generation SAFE Wallet prototypes, and I am STUNNED with how perfectly they turned out. We also have been testing our SAFE SHIELD screen protectors for SAFE Wallet X for iPhone X, and they are also amazing.

Tooling Design SAFE Wallet X




SAFE Wallet X


Injection-Molding Tooling Design 


I have come across many customers who talk about the SAFE Wallet, and say naive things like, "How much could it cost to make a SAFE Wallet. All it is is a  little piece of cheap plastic." I understand why people would make such an assumption. If you are not intimately familiar with the injection-molding process, you might think the same thing. The drawing below shows our tool design for our SAFE Wallet for iPhone X model, which as you see is extremely complex and sophisticated.


If just one part of this tool does not perform properly, you cant injection mold parts. And this is the tool for just making the SAFE Wallet case body. There are separate tools required (not shown) for overmolding the TPU Bumper system, as well as separate tools for the wallet door body, as well as another tool for molding all the buttons.

The tool pictured above is made to work on a 75 Ton Tool, which is heavy duty. 

It is amazing how much we take for granted the world around us, and I am certain that is the case with the SAFE Wallet. This reminds me of one of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes, which says:

"A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend upon the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received." —Albert Einstein
