The accessory that started it all. The Propr Handle is a stand/handle that makes it easier to hold and position your tablet device or phone.

About

 

I believe that the tools of our lives should conform to us and not the other way around.

Propr Things are are a growing line of tools that solve simply, everyday challenges.

Using modern tools of design, 3d-printing, testing and refinement, these Propr Things are honed to be useful, elegant, and simple solutions.

The Story

 
propr-streamlined-timelapse.gif

I created the Propr Handle to make it easier to read books on my digital tablet and to essentially solve a problem in my own life.

Based on the success of that particular product (Kickstarter)—and more importantly in the approach to that problem—Propr Things was born.

 
 

The Approach

 

While living in Madagascar, I became fascinated by the approach to fixing, tinkering, and building things as you need them (known as 'ady gasy').

I researched innovative 'making' approaches for a Master's degree, and began to teach myself 3d design and development.

I helped the U.S. Peace Corps' Office of Innovation promote a global Maker movement, and I got the opportunity to travel and learn from many local cultures about their use of tools and technologies.

These experiences have inspired me to design tools that are simple, flexible, easy to use, and obvious to repair.
