Senior ID undergrad Jake Frey (‘12) has found time in between his studies to not only improve one of his student projects, but also to find an investor, work with a manufacturer, and complete his first full production run of a new and improved version.
Frey’s design – called NeoCover – is an ordinary-looking lightswitch cover with a secret: it’s magnetic. This simple feature means no more searching for lost keys or drilling holes in the wall for hooks and holders. It’s strong enough to hold a ringful of 27 keys, yet harmless to flash drives, security cards and remote auto keys. In addition to rave reviews (Gizmodo called it a “godsend”) the NeoCover just got something every bit as important: an angel investor. For more on the NeoCover click here.
