Why We Designed Padroo
Many iPad users have the need to use their iPad while they are walking, waiting in line, on a bus or train. With bare hands holding the device, almost all of them feel that it's just not easy to do it for too long.
We saw the problems and the need, then we decided to come up with a solution - Padroo.
What We Do
More than a year ago, we started working on Padroo. Our team consisted of multiple senior designers and experts from manufacturing industries. After months of usability study, prototyping, testing, and designing, we are very excited to introduce the final form of Padroo!
The name "Padroo" came from "pad" and "roo". By using Padroo smart bag, you can easily hold the iPad like a happy kangaroo.
Right now, our collection includes messenger bag (black) and backpack (red or black).
With the hand-hold surface system and multi-functional case, Padroo can be used in five different modes, which fit almost every use case.
(1/5) Play Mode
In play mode, Padroo frees your hands so you can use your iPad comfortably while you are either standing or sitting, featuring a 360° rotation. You can also easily adjust your visual angle with the zipper. Now, you can play those somatosensory games ! !
(2/5) Walk Mode
To fasten iPad, we put built-in shock-absorbing nylon straps in Padroo. This way, your iPad won't wobble when you are walking, or even running. Grab your iPad and go. Travelling with iPad is no longer hustle and bustle.
(3/5) Camera Mode
Gaming is definitely not the only thing iPad does well. Once in a while, we do use iPad as a camera. With Padroo, you can rotate your iPad to shoot amazing photos at any angle, without worrying about dropping it.
(4/5) View Mode
In the mood for a movie or show? Let Padroo hold your iPad for you. Sit down and feast on the audio & visual banquet, anywhere and anytime.
(5/5) Table Mode
Work is always important! Undock your iPad from Padroo's hand-hold surface system, and use your iPad on the table or any other surface with our iPad case.
We have been working on Padroo for over a year since we came up with the idea. If we, with your help, succeed in bringing it to the market, we will start implementing our new ideas for Padroo. We plan to build something more than just an iPad bag. We'd like to equip Padroo with exciting modules such as built-in power, anti-theft positioning chips, and so on.
If we complete our objective on Indiegogo, we will deliver the first batch to backers in October 2014. Your contribution will help us a lot! You can get your Padroo smart bag as soon as it's ready. If we exceed our target here on Indiegogo, we'll get the second series/term of production going right away so we can produce the next batch of Padroo for the market in other regions.
Last but not least, our heartfelt appreciation to the Indiegogo community!
