The world’s biggest and most popular automotive accessories retailer has announced plans to launch an app that will allow users to install Magnetic Tape to the rear of their cars.
The app, called Magnetic Tape Auto, is slated to launch in the US this month, and the company’s head of product and innovation said it would make the process a lot easier.
“We want people to have a choice,” said Paul Pritchard, managing director at Magnetech, in an interview with The Verge.
“You can have a sticker on your car and it’s fine.
You can have the sticker on the car and you can have Magnetic Tape on it.”
The company, which also owns a number of car and bike parts, will be releasing a magnetic tape app for both Apple and Android devices in the next few months.
Pritchard said Magnetic Tape will also work on other automotive systems, such as Tesla’s Powerwall, and will be integrated into future cars.
“I think there’s a huge amount of potential,” he said.
“I think a lot of people are going to have this opportunity.”
Magnetech will be working with car manufacturers to develop a system that will work with magnetic tape, Pritches said.
“It’s a big deal, to me, because I’ve been a huge fan of Magnetic Tape for a long time,” he told The Verge, adding that it’s one of the biggest selling accessories in the automotive industry.
“They’re great, they’re easy to install, they do the job.
We are confident that they will make an impact in the industry.”
While magnetic tape is one of Magnetic’s biggest customers, the company is also interested in other automotive accessories, including the popular Tethering system.
Pritchers said the company plans to work with manufacturers to make the Tetherable a standard accessory.
“What we want to do is work with companies to make that product a standard,” he explained.
“And we are working with companies now to get it into cars and make it available to consumers in the near future.”
Magnetic Tape Auto will be available in the coming months, Pregnant Bodies said.
