Chicago Startup Launches New Indiegogo Campaign For iPhone 6 Waterproof Cases

TAKTIK 360 + AQUATIK

LunatikChicago-based tech startup and creators of the Kickstarter-success TAKTIK, LUNATIK has launched a $100,000 crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for its new iPhone 6 waterproof cases TAKTIK 360 + AQUATIK. Within the first few hours, the project raised over $31,000 thanks to nearly 375 backers.

LUNATIK has designed an airtight, compression closure system for both TAKTIK 360 + AQUATIK cases, which protects from water and dust to an IEC rating of IP68. This means that the iPhone will stay safe and dry for up to one-hour in water as deep as two meters.

Some of the features included with the TAKTIK 360 case are:

  • Easy-to-pocket tapered edges
  • Articulating silence key
  • Volume adjustment keys with optimized tactility
  • Optical clear photo lens
  • Non-slip perimeter impact bumper
  • Simple secure latch closure
  • High impact ballistic bezels
  • Corning Gorilla Glass screen protecting lens

KS_Story v4AQUATIK features the following:

  • Ultra-slim profile
  • Articulating silence key
  • Volume adjustment keys with optimized tactility
  • Interior suspension core protection lattice
  • Touch ID compatible
  • Sealed audio and charging ports

Noting its past successes, LUNATIK stated, “In 2012, we raised the bar for device protection with TAKTIK Extreme. We believe that consumers aspired to better quality accessories for their valuable devices than what currently existed on the market, and we were right.”

“Since then, TAKTIK has successfully protected thousands of iPhone for those who rely with their gear – people who serve in the military, police, firefighters, skydivers. Users who won’t settle and whose hobbies, passions, jobs or lives depend on having the best gear available. We care deeply about making products of the highest quality possible and are grateful to have an incredible community of uncompromising users to help inform our products.”

KS_Story v4In regards to why they turned to Indiegogo for this campaign, the team added, “We care deeply about making the best products possible and are grateful to have an incredible community of uncompromising users to help inform our products. Users who won’t settle and whose hobbies, passions, jobs or lives depend on having the best gear available. No design is perfect. The quest for ultimate protection is an evolutionary, iterative and expensive process, and we’ve been continually learning, refining and pushing the limits since TAKTIK was first introduced for the iPhone 4s.”

“We are small design company, not a billion dollar case brand that has unlimited resources and distribution. With your support, we are focused on shipping TAKTIK 360 and AQUATIK in Q1 of 2015. We are truly excited to share this journey with you. As we move further into the campaign, we will be providing frequent updates and insight into our development process. We value the journey as much as the final product and hope you do to.”

The project is set to close on November 5th.
