 We thank everyone for your support on this project.  We will provide updates as we move forward. Please refer to www.myDigiBit.com for post-Kickstarter orders and information. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 DigiBit Dash - Jump, Turn, Dodge physically active game.

FunnyWings - First VR game for DigiBit, fly like a bird.

DigiBit Air Hockey - Classic fun and social game.

 

 

DigiBit Dance - Put on your DigiBits and your dancing shoes! See the prompts scroll across your screen and tap the right sequence with your fancy footwork. Real-time communication between DigiBits enable many player to synchronize dance to the same song!

DigiBit Jump - Friends get in a circle while standing. A DigiBit on the top of everyone's foot. When the LED's flash on each player's foot, they must jump quickly. After each jump, the LED's flash on the next player in the circle. With each interaction, the speed increases until someone cannot keep up. 

DigiBit Skydive - Jump out of a plane while wearing a DigiBit on each hand.  Time the jump correctly and set you glide path downward with hand motions.  Pull the shoot at the right time or else... splat!

 

  

 

      

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

       

 DigiBit devices have sensors and micro-controllers that sense and calculate your body motion in real-time. They beam this information to your mobile device to control in-game actions.  Bluetooth low energy (BLE) communications ensure no mobile data or WiFi is needed.

 

 

 

 

   

  

 

 

The system is already designed, engineered and manufactured! We have worked with our 50 year old manufacturing partner www.RSPInc.com to ensure all manufacturing processes and facilities are in place prior to the campaign.  50 Systems have already been built. Check out our Instagram video and picture gallery to see the progression of the development.

Risks and challenges

Our funding level is modest because DigiBit has already minimized the main risks for our backers. We have done this by starting the development of the DigiBit system more than 1 year before launching this campaign and prepared the manufacturing in advance. We have produced and tested 100's of electronic boards and the communication system.

Our manufacturing partner RSP (www.rspinc.com) has already delivered 50 complete ship-able products months before the campaign. We are already ready for high volume manufacturing.

Moving forward, the main risks and challenges are to complete the games have developed. We plan to finish we.R.play FunnyWings and a demo game of DigiBit Dash as well as DigiBit AirHockey by November 2017.

To give the best value to you, we also want to deliver more games than just these 3 before Christmas of 2017 but the number of games and the level of content of each game will depend on how much funds we raise. The good news is that as a Kickstarter backer, all games from DigiBit forever in the future, regardless of the release date, are FREE to you!
