Kickstarter project hopes to fund Mac mini mount

Bracket allows wall mounting, even behind HDTVs

Recent PC-to-Mac switcher Ari Meisel wanted an elegant way to wall-mount his Mac mini behind his wall-mounted screen, so he designed one. The pair of plastic mounting brackets go by the name of MiniB, and Meisel hopes to turn the design into a fully-fledged product with funding from Kickstarter, a crowd-source venture capital operation.

Meisel, who says he "couldn't be happier" about the switch, runs a blog all about automating, outsourcing and making one's life more efficient. The MiniB design allows the Mac mini to be mounted on a wall or under a desk with full access to the drive and all the ports, also leaving room for a security cable or other type of lock.

Kickstarter projects invite ordinary people to invest small amounts of money in a new venture, and if the funding goal is met, the early investors get a modest reward (for example, early versions of the product before it hits the market). Meisel has levels of investment ranging from $5 to $5,000, with the rewards stretching from being able to pre-order a pair of brackets (retail price is expected to be $45) at the $25 level, to a special-edition stainless steel version of the brackets ($300 level) or even global distribution rights ($5,000 level).

Meisel is hoping to have at least $6,000 pledged by May 13th in order to go forward with the project. He also plans to create variations on the design for mounting other products.
