[prMac.com] Huntington Beach, California - Female Apple technician-turned-inventor, Janet Ferguson has announced her new Kickstarter campaign for the Zoombang-infused iPhone case called Bang! Box. The patent pending Bang! Box case for the iPhone 5 and 5S contains Zoombang, a special polymer that is soft in its normal state, but immediately stiffens in proportion to the amount of energy applied to absorb over 80% of shock. It then returns to its original soft state after the force or stress is released.
Zoombang is the same incredible yet surprisingly thin polymer used in professional sports padding, Hollywood stunt gear, military tactical gear - and more. Janet Ferguson, an Apple Technician with a background in marketing and business development, has partnered with Zoombang to create the Bang! Box.
This exciting technology is now available to protect our everyday companion, the iPhone. When an iPhone is protected with a Bang! Box, you can bang it around as much as you'd like because science is on your side. After a year of intensive research and many rounds of CAD designs and prototypes, Bang! Box is ready for Kickstarter.
"Product development is not a cheap endeavor, so I am taking my Bang! Box project to Kickstarter to raise the remaining $120,000 I need within 32 days. For a fun twist, Kickstarter backers will get to vote on the final design," says Janet. "The Kickstarter community is just as passionate as I am about projects like this, so I am confident we can meet - even exceed this goal," she added.
The design of the Bang! Box is rugged, efficient, and stands out in a crowd. Inside the corner pockets of the inner silicone layer is where the Zoombang magic takes place. However, the fact that it contains Zoombang is only the beginning. This iPhone case is branded with its name cut out on the back of the outer plastic layer and the special Kickstarter Edition dons glow-in-the-dark Kickstarter green on its silicone layer.
The Bang! Box design and partnership with Zoombang aren't the only things that stand out in a crowd. Janet has created the fictional comic book characters "Alex, the Super Villain" and "Jake, the Spider Monkey" portrayed by her son, Alex, and their dog, Jake, in the Official Bang! Box Kickstarter video.
Janet Ferguson's education background is in marketing from the University of Colorado at Denver. She also holds technical certifications from Apple such as Apple Certified Macintosh Technician (ACMT), Apple Certified Support Professional (ACSP) and Apple Certified Technical Coordinator (ACTC). This educational background has provided her with valuable insight into marketing and business development as well as extensive knowledge about using, fixing, and making the most of the iPhone and other Apple products. Janet also previously owned and operated Dr. Geek, LLC, a former on-site computer repair company that was based in Denver, Colorado, for four years.
To help bring Bang! Box to life, consider contributing $1 or more to the Bang! Box Kickstarter Campaign. Pledges of $60 or more allow you to become one of the first to own a Bang! Box for the iPhone 5 and 5S. The first 25 contributors can get the Bang! Box Early Bird Special for $45. To follow this project, find Bang! Box on Kickstarter.
