iPhone Lightning Cable Strikes Big Idea with LEGO Fans on KickStarter
November 15, 2012 in Mobile Accessories
[prMac.com] Royal Oak, Michigan - Marvel Apps, LLC is delighted and proud to announce their First KickStarter Project, "The Klinker Brick". The Klinker Brick integrates the charging cable of the iPhone and houses it inside a custom designed interlocking building block (aka LEGO(R) style brick).
This has been a fun family adventure and we want to share it with you. The Klinker Brick is an iPhone stand that beautifully combines the love our family has for Apple(R) products and LEGO(R) products. Essentially, you can create your own custom iPhone charging stand by combining the Klinker Brick with LEGO(R) pieces.
While I was away on a business trip, my seven-year-old son made me something as a welcome home gift. He loves LEGO(R), buildings, iPhones, and creating stuff. He took apart Darth Vadar's Imperial Fighter and started to make a holder for my iPhone. It was a great custom build. With just little improvement, Klinker Brick has come to a realization! And all this credit goes to my son.
Simply add the Klinker Brick to your personal LEGO(R) collection and begin to build whatever kind of iPhone stand and charging station you wish. This way, we bring together two well-designed, well-loved products in a fun, creative way.
Functions and Highlights:
* Connect with LEGO(R) pieces
* Will fit and attach to any LEGO(R) piece
* Raising $15k will allow Marvel Apps LLC to produce Klinker Bricks for the iPhone 5's Lightning connector cable
* Raising $30k will allow Marvel Apps LLC to produce Klinker Bricks for previous generations of iPhones and the 30 pin connector
Klinker Brick is a 100% made in the USA product. We are an American company based in Michigan, from the hard-working area of Detroit.
