GottaBeFunded: SOOT Kickstand for Kindle Fire



There are a lot of Kindle Fire cases on the market, but not enough according to SOOT.

The team behind SOOT have taken to Kickstarter to offer a new take on the Kindle Fire case. A case that addresses a shortcoming, and works with most other Kindle Fire book style cases.

The Soot Kickstand for the Kindle Fire is demoed in the video below, where you can see it in use in portrait, landscape and typing modes. Even more, you can hear (and see) the difference in sound from the Kindle Fire.

The Soot Kickstand for the Kindle Fire uses an acoustic chamber to channel the sound coming out of your Kindle Fire’s speakers towards you, instead of off to the side. This results in better sounding movies, TV shows and music, making it possible to share a movie with a friend.

One of the things that Kindle Fire owners will like is that you can use this with many other Kindle Fire book style cases. This is important because the SOOT Kickstand provides no protection or your Kindle Fire.

One thing that users may not like is that the kickstand is a separate piece. You can store it on the back of the Kindle Fire with the base on, but some users may still worry about losing the essential part of this case.

    Great article Josh! Thanks. One thing to note… if users do lose their card, they can use an old credit card from their wallet to pop into the case — it’s been designed with that in mind! :)
