Latest into the 'product design' array via crowdsourcing giant Kickstarter is NY/NJ based itFits, making a big splash in its entre and earning a quarter of its 30-day $10,000 product budget goal within a mere 3 days of activating its Kickstarter campaign. itFits is a flexible yet strong smartphone accessory, wrapping around an array of smartphones with or without cases in place, allowing for a kickstand-like handsfree use anywhere in either landscape or portrait orientation, as well as functionality as a hook to affix your phone to any number of surfaces for maximum enjoyment. The itFits even allows for earbud wrapping. Oh, upgrading your phone next month or next year? itFits flexes so we'll hopefully be able to fit that phone and its case as well. itFits thought of everything.

"We received an enthusiastic consumer response from our early shipments." says design inventor and CEO Nancy Scala, "So much so that we decided to present our small business to the public in such a way that would enable buy in and help the itFits team to deliver this much needed – even long overdue - product to market that much more quickly. Kickstarter and crowdsourcing are so of the moment, we decided to see what a sophisticated audience would do to support our product. We’re excited to give the Kickstarter audience a ground floor view of our innovative product.”

During the month of February, Kickstarter supporters can pledge any amount of money through this crowdsourcing campaign here; bids of as little as $12 are rewarded with an itFits device in the color of their choice. That is 40% less than retail pricing as a thank you for helping support the itFits small business production launch.

The $10,000 itFits looks to raise on Kickstarter during the month of February will be enough to move a massive production run through the pipeline, ensuring that the goods get into the hands of the end user - fast. "Nothing would thrill us more," added Bill Burg, co-inventor and Creative Director at itFits.
