A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Raccoon.Clip is an easy to use controller that is placed on a palm like a clip and connects via Bluetooth to any device – smartphone, tablet (for mobile gaming), consoles or PC (for classical video games). It works both with mobile VR/AR and video games without any game customization (the gadget is operated via the native application). Raccoon.Clip is a compact controller that makes the gaming experience more mobile and simple.
With Raccoon.Clip you will get a real freedom
Why choose Raccoon.Clip
Raccoon.Clip delivers the new experience to gamers of absolutely different kinds.
You definitely should try to test Raccoon.Clip for a new experience in your favorite games! For example, shooting provide much more fun when you can literally aim with your hand, and controlling your car by twisting the palm, like on the wheel, feels very realistic.
Raccoon.Clip in mobile VR/AR
Raccoon.Clip allows you to step in the game. It is compatible with any headset and any mobile device. It delivers the experience of interaction with mobile VR/AR applications (the same like with Google DayDream, Oculus Touch or HTC Vive) to everyone - no matter what device or OS you use.
Raccoon.Clip instead of regular controller (mouse and keyboard or joystick)
The technology of space orientation used in the gadget allows assigning the concrete action to a particular hand position. Thus, Raccoon.Clip is best for shooters, racings, arcades and retro games.
How to connect
Raccoon.Clip is easy from A to Z. We did our best to deliver you an ultimate and comfortable experience. Connection, settings, and usage are as easy as 1-2-3!
Still not sure how easy is to use Raccoon.Clip? Watch the product review made by a cosplayer, TV host and gamer – Marianna De Mort.
Raccoon.Clip is slim and sleek, it is easily put on a palm and thanks to elastic body fits a hand of any size. Hypoallergenic biodegradable materials allow using it for hours without any uncomfortable feelings on a skin. It is small enough to fit in your pocket and carry around. It is possible to connect 8 controllers at a time and play together. So why not take a couple of Raccoon.Clips to your friend's house, connect to a PC or TV and play together?
How it works
Raccoon.Clip has a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope. This allows the software to understand the related orientation and position of Raccoon.Clip without any additional cameras or special light conditions. The frequency on these sensors is more than 100 frames per second, meaning the latency would not exceed 10 ms. Thus, you will get the incredible preciseness and immediate reaction even in tough games. The force feedback technology in Raccoon.Clip is realized by vibro-sensor. This allows you to get instant feedback and actually "feel" the virtual world.
Our aim was to create a controller that was not intimidating for a casual gamer and great to use for an experienced player. So Raccoon.Clip is easy to master while multifunctional.
Moving a hand and pushing 3 buttons, the player can get all the possibilities of the regular game controller. Every button and hand position is responsible for concrete action. Raccoon.Clip can execute 12 different commands right from the box that is absolutely enough for the majority of games: 6 movements, 3 buttons and 3 simple figures to "draw" (circle, traingle and square). If you need more commands, you can customize Raccoon.Clip according to your needs: combine movements and figures with buttons. And remember, using controllers on both hands provide the double quantity of commands and double pleasure from gaming!
Supported operating systems
At the start of Kickstarter campaign Raccoon.Clip is compatible with all the devices on Windows and Android. We are working on the support of other operating systems, as well as consoles. We commit keeping to the deadlines shown in the scheme. All the updates will be free for Kickstarter backers.
We will inform you about all newly added platforms here, on Kickstarter page.
Games to play
As it was already said, Raccoon.Clip is compatible with all video games where mouse and joystick are used. But with racing, shooters, arcades and retro games, it is simply the best! Here are some of our favorite games to play with Raccoon.Clip:
This is Chris. You can see how he operates the car by simple gestures. With the help of the buttons, he can accelerate, slow down or return to the race. Control type: hand twists.
This is Max. He is crazy about shooters. Watch him moving his hand, aiming and killing bandits with Raccoon.Clip. Control type: moving the cursor.
Here are some of our favorite VR/AR games to play with Raccoon.Clip:
This is Natalie. Look at her playing a VR game where she rules her spaceship and hits enemies with Raccoon.Clip.
This is Xander. He loves sports and adores playing ping-pong with Raccoon.Clip. Moving his hand he easily interacts with the ball without lagging.
This is Daniel. Watch him kill dragons flying towards him... in the Bay Area! Raccoon.Clip makes it possible to play in augmented reality. We bet Daenerys will beware if she had such rivals!
Raccoon.Clip SDK is available to anyone who wants to enlarge their game with Raccoon.Clip functionality. So if you are engaged in game development – do not hesitate to contact us!
What we propose to developers
We believe every game ever made for mobile VR/AR will soon be available for Raccoon.Clip users. With the help of SDK made by our team, Raccoon.Clip can be easily added as a controller into any existing mobile VR/AR application where the other controllers are used. In most cases, no significant modification of the gaming content or application is required, just integration of our SDK with input/output data!
We have also created a prototype of tracking system that allows to track all the hand movements and to transfer them into digital or virtual reality. It will be finalized and ready to implement after we get funded on Kickstarter. We are currently communicating with numerous software developers and are part of several development communities.
Raccoon.World team is available 24/7 for game developers.
More Ways to Use Raccoon.Clip
We like to use the Raccoon.Clip for gaming, but its possibilities go beyond this. Use the device:
We have already passed a long way and there are things we can be proud of. But there is so much more we want to do in the future! We will never stop evolving for you.
We are not going to stop when we succeed with Raccoon.Clip. We have bigger plans to build the company to provide the technology which will give you an opportunity to use your hands with full mobility. The next step is the design of a modular Raccoon.Clip, with advanced functionality. Moreover, Raccoon.World has already designed a prototype glove which will give you an opportunity to interact with virtual reality and control remote objects. Additionally, we have designed a prototype tracking system that allows to track all the hand movements and to transfer them into digital or virtual reality.
Raccoon.World has already been appreciated by world leading experts in VR/AR, the gaming industry and has taken part in local and International events.
