My favorite part of this project is getting to dabble with leather and different materials. You know, stuff that’s super high quality and durable, but also looks really cool.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
On September 12, Mike Macadaan launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a new, portable cable management system that helps users keep their headphones, mobile phone, laptop and other charging cords organized while on the go. Reaching the project’s $15,000 funding goal in a little over one week means that Kickstarters and early adopters are now guaranteed to receive any of the premium leather goods they back on the project page.
The Cord Taco is a small, leather circle that, when folded around a coiled headphone cord, snaps into place and keeps headphones tangle free. The Cordito is a long, leather rectangle that houses multiple USB or headphone cables and two USB wall plugs or whatever each user’s heart desires. Simply roll it up like a burrito, snap it shut and it’s ready for travel. Lastly, the one-size-fits-all Cordlupa looks like a mini belt for a laptop power cord. Wrap the cord around the charger and secure it in place with the Cordlupa. It’s as simple as that.
“My approach to design is pretty straightforward; identify a problem, do a whole bunch of research and then I’m usually always in shock that it hasn’t been solved yet in the right way,” says Macadaan. “My favorite part of this project is getting to dabble with leather and different materials. You know, stuff that’s super high quality and durable, but also looks really cool.”
We’ve all experienced the wrath of tangled cords stuffed into backpacks, purses and bags and we’ve also seen many different cable management solutions. But, unlike the popular Apple Cores or Grid-It organizer, these cord organizers are flexible for easy storage when not in use, and stylish enough to leave on a desk or in a car. These new premium leather goods elegantly solve unruly cords and quarrelsome wires for those traveling or simply going about their daily lives.
Those who want to support the campaign can back the project and, in return, receive some awesome rewards like leather shoelaces, leatherback writers and pencil wraps in addition to the whole cord suite; Cord Taco, Cordito and Cordlupa. Early adopters can even have their goods monogrammed to not only add that personal touch, but discourage theft. Rewards range from $1 to $750 for the opportunity to see how it’s all done behind the scenes and there are many different combination packs of all the different cord solutions.
