Boomerang Ready For Take Off!
XVIDA CEO, Uros Cadez, announces upcoming launch of Kickstarter campaign.
European tech-design firm Xvida is launching its' Kickstarter campaign for Boomerang, the iPad's first all-in-one mount and stand on Monday, November 12. Investment raised on the crowd-funding Kickstarter platform will supplement existing venture capital and push Xvida's tech triumph into full production. In next week's release video, Uros Cadez, XVIDA CEO, will introduce Boomerang for the first time.
"Boomerang combines two of the most common ways in which we use the iPad," said Cadez, "It's a superior iPad stand with three solid viewing angles; it can also act as a mounting system to other surfaces with its simple, magnetically detachable mount, which works a bit like the MacBook power cord."
"Like many people, I've been big fan of the iPad ever since its 2010 launch, but since then I'd been looking for the perfect accessory, something which allowed me to type at exactly the right angle. I wanted to step into my car and use iPad as a navigation device without having to constantly change all the mounts, cases, and adapters. I wanted to loose myself in a movie no matter how hard the workout at the gym. My guess was that many others loved the iPad, but not the need to constantly adapt it to its environment. Our research proved this and we advanced with our prototypes."
Cadez came up with the idea to develop Boomerang while working in London as a computer graphics artist, creating visual effects for TV and the movie industry. Although he had the expertise to visualize and animate, the turning point was when he joined forces with Luka Stepan, a talented friend from the Royal College of Art's London Design School. Together, they began designing Boomerang.
For the past 18 months Cadez has been working with a team of experienced young professionals, leaning on their detailed knowledge of consumer design, plastics, mechanical engineering and manufacturing to develop the perfect iPad companion.
"Boomerang was designed from the ground up, using the finest machining technologies. This allowed us to build a sleek, thin and foldable device without compromising on its sturdiness. We performed stress tests to make sure the device is ready to perform with the toughest of your daily challenges, day after day."
Boomerang is the first all-in-one mount and stand, but Cadez plans to open-source one side of Boomerang's interface and in doing so enable others to develop and even sell their own mounts.
