    Hi all,

    For those of you that don't remember me, I developed a unique Flip Stand and cover for the Asus EP121. I drew a lot of my early feedback from this forum while I posted my progress in designing the case. I would like to thank you all for your feedback and support. :)

    We now call my invention the FlipSteady

    We launched a Kickstarter project yesterday that offers the FlipSteady for the iPad 2 and The new iPad. You can check it out here.

    FlipSteady for iPad 2 and The new iPad by Isaiah Coberly — Kickstarter

    I fought like hell to make sure I included a version of the FlipSteady for the Asus slate but had to come to grips that I had my hands full just offering a version for the iPad.

    That said, I have been contacted by a number of Ep121 owners disappointed that they cant have a FlipSteady for the EP121. I'm toying with the idea of just offering the ASUS case as a reward even though we didn't show it in the video. We can certainly make one and show it in an update.

    Is anyone in?

    Also, any further feedback and support from any of you is much appreciated.

    I would like to have Tablet PC Review run a quick story on the FlipSteady. Anyone know who to talk to about that?

    Thanks again, :)

    <<...Anyone know who to talk to about that?..>>

    ...Of course, TPCR can't endorse your product, but I don't see why it can't be mentioned. Suggest that you write a short descriptive article. It can be posted in the news forum.

    I remember reading about that a long time ago. If I'm right the project didn't end up raising enough funds on Kickstarter. I think they are making the right move by going with one for the iPad. Has a chance of raising enough for that project.

    Hey Isiah, glad to see this back in the works. And congrats on all your success with the new stand so far.

    I'm in for the EP stand, assuming we're talking about roughly the same $$ contribution as currently showing on Kickstarter. And thanks for offering this!

    As long as it doesn't collect my cats hairs, i would go for one myself. I don't like the original cover, viewing angles are just wrong for my use and it never stays put when i'm watching something in my bed for instance.

    I would definitely get one of these if offered for the EP121. I love my slate. But it is very much under-served by the accessories market.

    I'm in..and as Dr. Macabre said .. "As long as it doesn't collect my cats hairs" - or weigh a ton (which it doesn't appear to do that).

    Thanks for trying again. I was disappointed when it didn't happen last time because there aren't a lot of options.

    Common all, lets really get behind this, the idea that FLIPSTAEDY started as a folio for the asus slate and might not be completed because we just can support the inventor is poor, a chance to rectify that by JUST VOTING, mass forward the link to friends on email or social websites and VOTE, if we want to see a case for the Asus EP121 PLEASE, I want one.

    Looks like you guys put the ASUS EP121 in the lead! LOL.. Ill be making the FlipSteady for you guys.. It's WAY more expensive to build the FlipSteady for the ASUS Slate so Ill need to find an appropriate price. Ill make a reward available soon and announce it here. Thanks for your persistence.. I love my little EP121 community! Thanks :)

    I voted for EP121 on the poll. I presume you will do international shipping?

    Do you have any pictures or videos of the FlipSteady for the EP121? I not sure I want to spend £70 on a case when I don't even know what it looks like.

    is it really necesssary to make the ep121 version a "pro" magnetic one? it would make it more expensive for no added benefit
