In 2015, when creator Mauricio Cavalcante had just had his first son, he was also constantly traveling for work. He missed his family and stayed in constant touch through video calls.
However, he noticed that many times when he called his wife, she was too busy taking care of their newborn to be able to hold the phone at the same time, which they both realized was a problem.
Mauricio sought out to find a solution for this issue. He purchased a small tripod so that his wife could mount her phone during their next FaceTime call. However, the next time he called, the tripod was not with his wife at that moment; it was nowhere to be found.
After that, he searched the entire internet for a suitable solution and found none that suited all of their needs. That’s when he decided to create the solution himself and Nifticase was born.
