Kickstarter success stories seem to be very heart-warming, but the truth of the matter is that there is a great amount of sweat, blood and tension expended, just to get the finished products out to the backers. Mindplar’s story is no different than this, however they have managed to sustain and emerge as design studio that has carved their own path. The DEFENDE & ELITE are two awesome bumpers for the iPhone that are designed differently and boast impeccable lineage.
The AVA is a Smartphone cover with unique communicative capabilities. It uses the built-in accelerometer or gyroscope of the Smartphone, to intuitively change your social network status to ‘absent’, ‘available’, ‘busy’, or ‘away’. For example, if you are logged into Facebook, and want to switch your status from ‘available’ to ‘invisible’, then simply nudge the shell to a side-face. This not only changes the status but also changes the mode from ‘ring’ to ‘silent’.

For a person who gets inspired by fine writing instruments, it should be easy for me to articulate my opinion about the X – Pen, but for some odd reason I have a block! I think it stems from the fact that I equated well designed pens with the high-end brands. The X – Pen has forced me to rewire my thinking & take into consideration that lovingly crafted pens can be equally inspiring, distinguished and exude the same amount of confidence that a Porsche Design TecFlex or a Mont Blanc can!

This is reflected on the perforated material, giving the piece a 70s aesthetic but with modern functionality.
