NEW YORK, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Push and Shove LLC - today introduced bump (www.needabump.com), a sleek, take-everywhere, use-all day, can't-live-without accessory offered in a range of vibrant hues that provides a stylish solution to one of life's biggest headaches.
Together Richard Smiedt and Karim Rashid have designed and sold consumer products by the millions. The success of their most recent endeavor, bobble (the iconic self-filtering water bottle) has inspired them to explore a new passion project, in bump. Their experience has taught them that nothing disrupts more powerfully than design.
The pair set out to solve a problem. That problem is the propensity of mobile devices to run out of battery on a daily basis, often at the least convenient time. As they progressed they were joined by Phil King of Method fame. Together they saw the problem clearly. Tech Accessories are pure function- there is no emphasis on beauty, on aesthetic, on design, and there is no reason this should be so.
bump's flagship innovation is many things: a wall plug and battery back-up in one, which gives 1.5 charges to a regular phone, and also doubles as your wall plug with folding prongs. bump is compatible with all USB devices, includes a LED charge status indicator, Lithium Ion UL Certified, 3.7V 3350 mAh battery, and Smart Charge Features which by-pass the battery when fully charged.
bump is design at its best, it fits as perfectly in your hand as it does in your pocket, bag or backpack. The soft curves feel wonderful to the touch and it is sure to become the next truly democratic product for the digital age. bump emphasizes form and feel in addition to function.
"Most tech accessory companies buy off the shelf products which means things look and feel the same (i.e. usually square or rectangular) said Richard Smiedt CEO and Co-Founder of Push and Shove LLC. " This spurred us on to change this and over a period of intense iteration and multiple prototypes, circuit boards and battery configurations we were able to create the perfect charger." bump is beautiful. Its iconic pebble shape, soft feel and stunning colors were designed to motivate consumers to choose an alternative from most mobile phone accessories.
This integrates bump into every facet of ones lives, at home, school or the office, or at the gym, on the beach, on vacation or anywhere in between.
bump also has a full line of coordinated premium charging cables that never, ever tangle nor tear in matching vibrant colors, Black, Blue, Red and Magenta to suit all customers and occasions.
"Up until now the only way to make a fashion statement has been with phone cases and covers" said Richard Smiedt, "when Karim Rashid and I started this project we emptied out our bags and found nothing was coordinated, expressive or organized. Over the next year alone we will introduce another dozen or so products so all your tech can look good and feel great and make a statement of both aesthetic and functionality."
bump can be purchased online from www.needabump.com and will be available from leading retailers later in the year.
