Remora – A Stylus & Pen Case that Uses Magnetism to Securely Attach to Apple iPad Smart Covers

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2015-08-07

The Remora is a stitched-leather stylus & pen holder bonded to a metal baseplate that securely attaches to the magnets embedded in Apple iPad Smart Covers. The Remora’s thin profile compliments the iPad’s minimalist aesthetic, and is so compact a Smart Cover with a Remora attached will still fold into a display stand. The Remora’s patent-pending design, with its arched crown and tapered body, can hold one large stylus or pen, or two regular-size writing instruments. Steve Jobs once asked, “Who wants a stylus? You have to get ’em, put ’em away, you lose ’em.” Many people do want a stylus, and a Remora makes a stylus easy to get, put away, and less likely to be lost. The Remora is debuting on Kickstarter where it can be pre-ordered at a substantial Early Bird discount either alone or bundled with a black Hand Stylus. The Hand Stylus holds the record as the most popular stylus ever on Kickstarter and features the world’s smallest retractable tip that’s easy to replace and even rotates as it retracts so it wears evenly. The Hand Stylus received rave reviews in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, WIRED, and many other tech publications.

Just checking in on my backed products and wanted to congratulate you on your expansion of products! Love when something I've back helped somebody to do what they love. Still don't have a use for my remora but the idea and reason for the name is still the best one I've seen and that alone is what sold me on buy one. Anyway keep up the good work and congratulations again

Hello Remora Team,
I am staying in india.I have pledged for 1 remora with stylus but haven't yet received it.
Would you please help me in this ?

Got mine. It's flawless. Strange that it attaches better to a third party cover than to the Smart Cover.

@Steve Getting super frustrated in not receiving our 2 orders. You stated that you sent out our order on Dec 7th and on Dec 28th you also stated to send out the order, but we have not received them as of yesterday. Please send out our product with tracking or we will take other actions with Kickstarter and Visa.

My Remora arrived today, quality good however the customs paperwork wasn't correct so I've had to pay £19.33 in taxes to have it released to me, almost as much as the goods.
Very very poor, shoddy unprofessional mistake lets whole concept down 3/10

Hampus, I co-own a gift store and we've been open seven days a week from 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM every day since Thanksgiving, so I've not been as attentive to getting Updates out as I should have been. But you don't want excuses, you'd like some news... I'll fix that later today with a Shipping Update... thank you for your patience and support. Regards, Steve King • founder & designer • PRISM Designs

Review from Kickstarter
According to your latest update you should have been able to ship every Remora by now.
Can we get a confirmation that that happened?
I don't expect mine to have arrived yet (since I live in Europe), but knowing if it is en route or not would help.

Review from Kickstarter
Peter, this is the first time anyone has commented about the leather scratching easily. I will definitely do more research to learn more about this issue and probably give a report in an Update to everyone. I'm glad to have you call this to my attention as we are working on prototypes for a new Remora Pro which is designed to work with Apple's new Pencil stylus. And yes, the Hand Stylus does not work well with some screen protectors, especially tempered glass protectors. If you would like a refund on your stylus please let me know... or if you would like to regift it to someone whose iPad doesn't have a protector that's fine by me. In either case, there's no need to return your Hand Stylus. Regards, Steve King • founder & designer • PRISM Designs

Received mine today. Notice that the leather of remora scratch easily. I scratched mine with my nails while trying to remove a tiny bit of glue stain that I saw on the surface. :( As for the stylus, confirmed not friendly with tempered glass protector. Testing on my iphone and ipad as well. As both already protected with tempered glass protector, it not as sensitive and tend to need more strength/tries to get it working. :(

Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine tested for a couple days everytime i open my ipad with any force it falls off and it falls off when travelling in my bag. It only sticks to one part the case as well.

Hi Steve! I just got my Remora and Hand Stylus a few days ago and the Remora works great! I really couldn't be happier!! The stylus, however, was a bit disappointing. I tried it on my girlfriend's tablet, and like some of the other commenters have noted, it was quite unresponsive and needed a lot of pushing to work. I just got a new iPad today and I tried the stylus on it and it works a lot better. I think it might be because of the fact that my girlfriend's iPad has pretty thick screen protector on it (I believe it's tempered glass?). I really want to use the stylus but I also want to protect my screen with a screen protector. Do you have any suggestions on what screen protectors might work well with the stylus? Thanks!

How do I contact Steve King? I had some issues with my order that came in
Steve King
Review from Kickstarter
Danielle, I'm going to send you a personal email to go over the reasons your Remora may not be sticking firmly in place... if the Hand Stylus isn't working well, then we'll gladly replace it or send you a refund... which ever you prefer. You'll hear from me shortly via email. Regards, Steve King
Steve King
Review from Kickstarter
Terry, glad you like your Remora. I have an Apple Pencil and the Remora isn't long enough nor tight enough to hold a Pencil firmly in place. So, I've designed a Remora Pro that's longer and which has a pouch that holds the Pencil securely. I should have a prototype of the Remora Pro in a few weeks, and I'm planning to launch the Remora Pro on Kickstarter early next year. The current Remora is designed to work with regular length styluses and iPad Smart Covers, whereas the Remora Pro is specifically designed for Apple's Pencil and the iPad Pro's Smart and Keyboard covers. I'll be sure to let you know when the Remora Pro becomes available. Regards, Steve King

My remora and hand stylus arrived yesterday and I feel like I must be doing something wrong. It barely sticks to my smart cover and the stylus is so difficult for me to use. I want to love this!

Review from Kickstarter
@Steve King, just so I know where to look. Where will the survey for our address info be sent? In our Kickstarter messages, in Remoras updates, or to our email? I'm backing a few projects and each one is in a different place and sometimes I'm not seeing them until a few weeks later. Thank you for your time

Thank you. Nancy Woodward

Review from Kickstarter
Michael, Your comment/compliment may be my most favorite ever... you don't even have a use for the Remora but you liked the design concept and the idea for the name so much that you backed the project. I like your ethos of rewarding good ideas even when they don't directly benefit you. This is greatly appreciated! Regards, Steve King • founder & partner • PRISM Designs
Michael Horrell
Review from Kickstarter
I don't even have use for this product but I still got one because I love the concept and the idea for its name and I can't wait to show it off to my friends and hopefully help promote some future orders. I can't wait till it arrives. Congratulations on getting backed REMORA

I've been waiting for someone to make this product. I'm glad it was a company I trusted and enjoyed. I can't wait to get my remora and stop losing my styluses!
