2021 Touch ID Magic Keyboard + Magic Trackpad 100% Compatible with BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform!

 

2021 Touch ID Magic Keyboard + Magic Trackpad


BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform


I am very happy to report our BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform has been tested and is 100% compatible with the 2021 Touch ID Magic Keyboard & Magic Trackpad which are currently shipping exclusively with the all-new 24" iMac!!!



The ONLY way to purchase the new Apple 2021 Touch ID Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad II is to purchase them with the new 24 inch iMac, but it is likely just a matter of time before Apple starts selling them separately. So if you have the new 24 inch iMac with the Touch ID keyboard & Magic Trackpad and you want all the benefits of a BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform rest assured they are 100% compatible out of the box!

Preview of Upcoming Magic Bullet Remote for Apple TV Siri 2021 Remote


Preview of Upcoming

Magic Bullet Remote 

for Apple TV Siri 2021 Remote 

with Built-in AirTag Feature

At BulletTrain we are famous for our existing MagicBullet Remote for Apple TV Remote which is AMAZING!!! We have been working hard on developing the second generation of our Magic Bullet for Apple TV Remote control which will posses an innovative feature that will allow you to embed an Apple AirTag in the remote so you can NEVER lose your Apple TV Siri remote between the cushions or anywhere else ever again!!!





Update June 21, 2012: Below is the most updated design which has many iterative design detail improvements including a much larger and more ergonomic finger channel for removing the AirTag.





This amazing new MagicBullet Remote will prevent you from EVER losing your Apple TV remote ever again as there will be two different ways to locate it almost instantly:

1. You can ask Siri something like "Find my Bedroom Remote", and a few seconds later your Magic Bullet Remote will start pinging making a noise so you can find it in between the sheets or where it fell behind the bed, or even in a drawer.

2. If you can hear it but still can't find it, you can use the iOS Apple Find My Application which will navigate you to your Apple TV remote.


There is a special cavity in the Magic Bullet Remote Control holder to perfectly hold the Apple AirTag. It is designed in such a way that it won't ever rattle or make any kind of noise, expect when you want it to. 

There is a speaker outlet on the bottom of the remote which acts to amplify the sound waves the AirTab makes to make it even louder (Not Shown). The user then will place the Apple TV Siri remote in place and it will be held securely with our SAFE STOCK technology.

We also have plans to retrofit our first generation Magic Bullet Remote for Apple TV Sir Remote (pictured below) to accommodate an Apple AirTag as well. If all goes as planned we plan to launch this product for sale at the end of Q3, 2021 in August. 

We have already extensively tested prototypes that work great. Ironically we were working on this design even before Apple came out with the AirTag and new 2021 Siri Apple TV remote, and it is interesting to note how everybody and their mother who have reviewed the new Apple TV Siri remote love it but say the only missing killer feature is having a built-in AirTag, which will be rectified with our upcoming innovative models.




2021 4K Apple TV Siri Remote AirTag Case 


So why are we making an Apple TV Siri remote with AirTag holder, or an Apple Airtag Holder for Siri Remote? We originally made an Apple TV Remote Control holder to make the Apple TV remote much more comfortable and ergonomic. Our MagicBullet Apple TV Remote holder makes the Apple Siri remote much easier to hold as the remote is so thin. In other words, the added bulk makes it really comfortable to hold.

Some would argue that making a Siri Remote Holder Gadget with an AirTag feature creates an Anti-Loss Case for AirTag in the sense that you can NEVER lose or misplace your Apple TV remote again.


AirTag Remote for Apple TV Siri Remote

One could argue that Apple's oversight was a blessing in that the BulletTrain MagicBullet perfectly fits both the AirTag and Apple TV Siri remote, or "Siri Apple TV 4K HD Remote Control (2nd Gen)."

Some people might refer to our AirTag Remote for Apple TV Siri Remote (4K/HD) as a case, or a protective case but the design intent is to combines Apple TV remote and an AirTag remote into one super ergonomic remote control that is super comfortable and looks great.

I recently saw this cool 'Design Process' poster which I thought was very accurate as it illustrates that the design process is really all about solving problems through an iterative process.

SAFE WALLET 12 Family for iPhone 12

 


UPDATE


June 5, 2021: We just made the first injected molded 12 Pro Max case prototype models and they are AMAZING!!! 

We are still working on the tool for the door for the 12 Pro Max model and expect to have injection molded prototypes in about 4-5 weeks. Once we sign-off on the 12 Pro Max we will immediately begin tooling for the 12 Pro and 12 Mini models. I realize this is taking way longer than many people would like, but all I can say it that I am certain it will have been worth it. As soon as I have more information I will update this story again.


SAFE WALLET 12 Family

for ALL 4 iPhone 12 Models


We have begun tooling with our SAFE WALLET 12 family which will cover the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Max. This all-new 4th generation of SAFE WALLET model will be revolutionary for many reasons and will be designated as the "BulletProof Series" and we expect to begin shipping them around April 2021.




The Best iPhone Wallet Case

Is About To Get Even Better


So why name the 4th generation of SAFE WALLETs The BulletProof Series? In the past, the first 3 generations of SAFE WALLET were made with Polycarbonate which is hard plastic. The first and third generation (current) SAFE WALLET models featured TPU bumper systems. TPU is the acronym for Thermoplastic PolyUrethane.  

Making the 4th Generation SAFE WALLET entirely from TPU offers the following advantages:

  • Increased comfort and rubber-like grip with softer touch feel coupled with abrasion resistance.
  • Superb impact strength which is shatterproof.
  • Unaffected by oil and grease and other solvents (examples: hand oils, moisturizers, sunblock)

The BulletProof series ads features including ribbing on both sides which makes the SAFE WALLET even more grippy and slip-proof, while giving it a sportier vibe.

We recently moved our production from China to the United States as we experienced so many challenges. We believe this will result in a much better experience across the board including time to market.

We anticipate the 4th Generation being available for purchase around the end of Q1, 2021:



Upcoming SAFE WALLET 12 Mini 

 




We also plan to come out with 4th Generation SAFE WALLETs for the iPhone Xs, as well as the 11, 11 PRO and 11 PRO MAX in April of 2021 as we want everybody who owns an iPhone to be able to significantly benefit from our SAFE WALLET design.
