See the world in a new light with ScopeAround. Life is about discovery and that’s just what you’ll experience with this tech-packed video camera. ScopeAround is for the curious, for the doers and the thinkers, for the get-er-doners, and above all for the imaginative. 

ScopeAround is a powerful, lightweight video camera with three interchangeable camera heads, the Flexible, the Fit, and the Focus. Coupled with high-quality video and imaging, ScopeAround reveals a new perspective that previously laid just beyond your ability to see.

Our team’s vision is to bring medical-grade technology to consumers. With ScopeAround’s multi-functionality, there are so many different ways you can benefit from the powerful video camera. We spoke to hundreds of consumers to find out what they wished they could see and perfected cameras to help them uncover those things.

 

ScopeAround features an antiglare lens and LED lighting technology to deliver stunningly detailed videos and images. And with our high-speed image transmission technology, these images are presented to you seamlessly.       

ScopeAround is composed of a body and three interchangeable camera heads.

The body of ScopeAround is slim and sleek. It features the power indicator. Connect ScopeAround to your computer through USB to charge the device. A full recharge takes about 3 hours. When all three lights are illuminated on the body of the ScopeAround, the device is fully recharged. Turn the camera on with the touch of a single button below the power indicator and touch the button again to adjust the light intensity.

The Flexible, endoscope, is equipped with a camera that just 5.5 mm in diameter. We are the first in the world to integrate a 1080P high-definition camera that’s only 5.5mm in diameter.

The Focus, microscope, features a 150:1 zoom for an amazing up close look. It includes two clips on the tray to hold subjects for viewing. We integrated a 1080P high-definition camera that’s only 8 mm in diameter.

When you turn the knob on the side of the stationary tray, the tray will light up from below making your subject easier to see.

The Fit, side view camera head, uses a macro lens, meaning it can get as close as 1 centimeter (0.4 inches) to an object.

Each of these specifications were designed to fulfill a unique desired view and function. The camera records directly to your smartphone or device through wi-fi, so you can view and share your discoveries instantly.

Switching camera heads is seamless. You don’t have to turn off the device or disconnect your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. All you have to do is pop out and pop in a camera head to begin using a new view.

ScopeAround was designed to look elegant and sleek. The device consists of a highly integrated circuit so we were able to make it very small, compact and easy to carry. 

Our team went through a lengthy design process with numerous sketches and 3D printing prototypes to create a high-quality video camera that fit the needs of consumers.  

ScopeAround truly gives you a new way to learn, a new way to see yourself, a new way to work, and a new way to see the world. Whether you’re an aspiring scientist or an actual one, a professional worker or just a DIY dad, ScopeAround will help you uncover the details of what’s really around you. If you’re more focused on getting the job done than understanding the world, ScopeAround can also help. The lightweight video camera can help you see the details you need to solve a problem.

Getting up close and personal with your work can mean the difference between solving a problem and creating one. ScopeAround illuminates the world around you, so you can find out just what’s going on. With the endoscope camera head, the Flexible, you can see into tight spaces making your auto, plumbing, and other inspections becomes so much clearer. Is there a crack in your water pipe? A leak in your gas hose? Moms can use the Flexible to check what’s left in the overhead kitchen cabinet that they might have forgotten about, instead of having to use a ladder. If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, you’ll be able to find out on your own with ScopeAround.

You’ll be amazed when you discover the beautiful and fascinating world that exists just beyond your perception. ScopeAround can act as a learning tool for curious children and their parents. Using the microscope camera head, the Focus, children can use ScopeAround for science projects or personal exploration. Simple things like leaves, flowers, and your own skin become enhanced and enchanting with ultra-digital clarity. Get your child excited about science and nature with their own microscope. It’s easy for everyone to use.

          

With the ScopeAround side view camera head, the Fit, you can learn more about yourself. It was designed for cosmetic use. From checking for cavities to examining your pores you can find out what your body looks like up close, educate yourself, and take necessary action based on your findings.

At the end of day, anyone can use ScopeAround. A professional Mechanic, Plumber, or Repairman, you can discover what your problem really is and get onto the important part of solving it. Jewelers can get an incredibly detailed look at the jewelry piece they're looking at and determine its authenticity or improve it. Scientists can make discoveries and learn about their subject without purchasing a large and heavy equipment. A dentist or a dermatologist can perform their job and show the results to their patients. 

The beauty in ScopeAround is that It’s versatile, so it can fit your ever-changing needs. 

View your findings on your tablet, smartphone, laptop or computer. Use the ScopeAround app on your phone to see what you discover anywhere. Using a wi-fi network, you can connect your video camera to your smart device and make your next big discovery, wherever you are. It won’t always be convenient to set your subject down on the table. When you’re looking at your car’s engine or a moving specimen, this feature will enable you to get a new perspective on-the-go. 

ScopeAround presents your findings in impeccable quality right on your smart device. You’ll be able to clearly see what you’re studying and take action based on the detailed HD image or video. See your discovery in real-time with ScopeAround’s seamless delivery. 

Forget the 30-pound microscopes you used in Biology and the heavy video cameras of the ‘90s. ScopeAround features a highly-integrated circuit that enables the device to be compact and easy to carry. With this handy capability, you’ll be able to take the video camera wherever you might need it. Outside, to school, to work, around the house, it can go anywhere. 

 

ScopeAround doesn’t let a little darkness stop your discovery. The camera is equipped with a LED light to ensure that you’re always able to get the image you need. You’ll be able to use your video camera day and night. 

A key feature of ScopeAround is its three interchangeable camera heads. The situations in which you’ll use the video camera will be unique, so we created camera heads that are versatile enough to be able to fit a number of situations. With the side view camera, endoscope camera, and microscope camera, you’ll be prepared for whatever comes next. 

When you find yourself in a sticky situation and need to stick ScopeAround down a drain or wet surface, you can do just that. There are few limits to detailed discovery with this wonder. 


Our team is so passionate about helping your family see beyond what was previously possible. Get to know our team leaders and the experiences they’ve had that have led to the creation of ScopeAround.

Like any hardware startup, getting the product into production for mass availability requires funds. ScopeAround enables anyone to uncover a new perspective. We want to share this capability with the many aspiring scientists and professional of the world. To be able to do this, we’ll need support to expand marketing efforts as well. 

ScopeAround is counting on you to enable discovery by supporting our multi-functional video camera. 

Make Your Next Big Discovery with ScopeAround.

Risks and challenges

Our primary engineering challenge is to ensure that the ScopeAround wifi network is stable, so it can transmit real time high quality images/videos from the camera to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. We have done hundreds of experiments on the network to test the connection and we believe ScopeAround is ready.

Another potential challenge is manufacturing the joints between the body/handle and different camera heads. Our manufactures have years of experience and we feel confident that together we can make sure every device comes with a solid and durable joint that allows the camera heads to be interchanged thousands of times.

The manufacturing process can be difficult sometimes, but we are trying our best to minimize the risk of delays and deliver the products to you as fast as we can. We can’t wait for you to start seeing the world from an angle you have never seen it before. If delays were to happen, we would always keep backers in the kickstarter community updated on what’s happening and would inform our supporters of our plan of action immediately.
