SAFE Wallet Updates

SAFE Wallet Updates

iPhone 6/6s Plus Model

We are almost completely sold out of our SAFE Wallet for iPhone 6/6s Plus. Once we sell out we do not plan to make any more. Why?

We are planning on making our iPhone 7/7Plus SAFE Wallet models backward compatible with the iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus models. Our iPhone 7/7Plus models will be offered in our standard colors of Ruby Red, Polar White, BulletTrain Blue and Stealth Black. We plan to introduce the new models on Kickstarter.

iPhone 7/7Plus 
Compatibility with 
iPhone 6/6Plus SAFE Wallets?

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are NOT COMPATIBLE with the SAFE Wallet for iPhone 6/6Plus. This is due to the fact the cameras are in a significantly different position, and the camera rings are also much taller than in the iPhone 6/6Plus.

Upcoming iPhone 7/7Plus SAFE Wallet Models

We have the design complete and have working prototypes for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7Plus SAFE Wallets. We are working on the second generation version prototypes in which we are fine-tuning them in great detail. The next generation SAFE Wallets are a radical departure from the past models, and in some ways, harken back to the design language of our SAFE Wallet for iPhone 5/5s.

We plan to launch them for pre-order on Kickstarter sometime around the middle of December, and hope to start shipping 4-6 weeks later.

As previously mentioned, we also plan to make our SAFE Wallet for iPhone 7/7Plus backwards compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6 plus family of iPhones.

Magic Pencil Holder – Pre-Production Update

BulletTrain Magic Pencil Holder
Pre-Production Update
12.9" and 9.7" iPad Pro Compatibility!!!

When the 9.7" iPad Pro came out, we were very curious to see if the Magic Pencil Holder would work as it did with the 12.9" model. The design for the 12.9" iPad Pro did not work properly with the 9.7" model, so we set out to try to design a hybrid model which would reliably with BOTH iPad Pro models. 
After much experimentation, we are excited to share we've successfully figured out how to make a slightly updated Magic Pencil Holder that will work perfectly with both iPad Pro Models!!!
In the photos below, we've attached the latest pre-production prototype of the 9.7" iPad Pro for demonstrative purposes.

We're very excited to produce the best Magic Pencil Holder possible!

For clarity, the Magic Pencil Holder will be 100% compatible with:
    • 12.9" iPad Pro
    • 9.7" iPad Pro
    • Smart Keyboard Cover for 12.9" iPad Pro
    • Smart Keyboard Cover for 9.7" iPad Pro

Updates to Production Schedule

Our current projections:
    • Tool Modifications Complete - Late September 2016
    • Production Sampling - Middle of October 2016
    • First Production, Fulfillment - Late October 2016
We realize it can be frustrating to have a wait a little longer, but we know it will be 100% worth the wait for a flawless product for both iPad Pros! 
Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns in the comments, or to reach out to us by email at
Thanks again, everyone!!!

    1983 Apple Lisa Ad Think Of It As A Maserati For Your Mind

    What A Difference A Few Decades Make!!!

    1983 Apple Lisa Ad

    Think Of It As A Maserati For Your Mind

    I love checking out vintage Apple ads, like the one below for the Apple Lisa, which as the precursor for the Apple Macintosh. It is funny, because at the time of this ad, Apple was comparing itself to Maserati. Ironically today, Apple as a company completely blows Maserati away. In other words, today, Apple would NEVER compare themselves to Maserati.

    2016 Tesla Model S Ad

    Think Of It As The iPhone of Cars

    In another ironic twist of fate, today people say the Tesla Model S is the iPhone or cars, or it is like an iPhone with four wheels. What a difference several decades make!!!
