What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 What is Autocap™?

Autocap™ will be a mobile application that automatically captures selfies in real-time all the time from advanced live hd imaging satellites on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Photos at street-level or any angle you wish. 

First Created By Me (Kevin Zarbailov)

Appearance prototypes

 That time when a loved one was missed out from a picture because he/she volunteered to step out and snap the picture is over! The highest definition and quality pictures than ever before from advanced live hd satellites!

Open the app, Adjust the view however you like, click the autocap button, you can put your phone away to pose for the picture, and in 3 seconds the picture will be automatically captured!

 Traveling the world?, don't forget to take your phone with you.

 If you see Leonardo DiCaprio bike riding, catch up to him and request Autocap to snap a picture with him.

 The AutoCap™ app will provide its users with the ability to get the most beautiful pictures on their smartphones and tablets (Panorama view) . 

 In the night time, this is how the quality of the picture will look like. You do not necessarily have to be in the picture, AutoCap™ can snapshot anything around you.

 Something interesting about to happen near you?,  AutoCapIt™

How much will the app cost?   

Autocap™ will be a free to download mobile application with a $4.99 monthly subscription fee for unlimited pictures. Why is it priced so low? Because I want it to be affordable for everyone. The app will be available for download on all app stores and for anybody in any country with a smartphone or tablet. The reason I, Kevin Zarbailov, created this app is to solve the problem of a family member or friend missed out from group pictures due to that individual volunteering to snap the photo.

 Photos on street-level as if somebody snapped the picture for you but the surrounding come out more beautiful!

How does it work? 

The user downloads the app and turns his/her location services on on mobile device, and a live hd video at street-level facing the user will instantly appear on the window of your smartphone or tablet. The user can adjust the panorama view any to angle he/she prefers. Then click the autocap button on the screen and a picture will be automatically captured in hd quality in 3 seconds at the set view when you clicked the button, giving the people in the photograph enough time to pose for the picture and put their phone away. The picture thats taken after 3 seconds is live!!! The user will be able to preview the photo for deletion or save it to photo library. If not previewed, the photo will be saved automatically to the smartphone. 

 Its about time!

How will Autocap™ benefit its users and the world?   

Autocap™ will benefit its' users greatly by providing them with beautiful pictures; and family members/friends would not have to be missed out from pictures anymore to snap the picture. Imagine a picture taken from a live HD imaging satellite! Autocap™ will benefit the world by making it a safer place; reducing crime rate dramatically. Here is the reason why; criminals would think plenty of times now before performing an illegal act knowing anybody anywhere around them has the criminal on camera. Thus, that will be the case because Autocap™ will be an extremely popular app and the new photography trend.

 Hands down, Autocap will be the new photography trend! If you are by yourself or with a friend on top of a mountain with nobody around how do the both of you get a picture together?, AutocapIt™ 

 Selfies via AutoCap™

 The user of the app can adjust the view to however he/she likes to capture the surroundings in various ways.

Raising funds for:

I am raising funds to get AutoCap™ off its feet. I am raising funds to hire app developers to create the app and license the live imagery from  Earthnow(currently in contact with them) and for lawyer fees. The more we raise, the more we can accomplish. Thank you to all funders that help bring AutoCap™ into reality. I appreciate it.

Imagery Provider:

Earthnow (Earthnow.com), affiliated with Nasa, is currently in the production of advanced live hd imaging satellites, to be placed into space soon for the public to watch almost any place on Earth as a live streaming video for Earth observatory purposes. Successful entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates and Greg Wyler and large corporations such as SoftBank Group and Airbus invested billions of dollars for Earthnow. Earthnow is willing to do business with inventors based on their app, however we hope to raise enough money to set up a license agreement with Earthnow to license their imagery. I am currently in contact with Earthnow. Unlike Earthnow, Autocap pass privacy regulations for facial recognition because the app only works through current location via location services on mobile device.

One of the causes we are raising funds for is to set up a license agreement with Earthnow to use their live imagery.

Patent Pending:

I am currently patent pending on my invention, Autocap™.

How did I come up with the invention?

I was bike riding with my brother and several friends on the streets of Montreal, Canada. At the time we decided we all wanted a picture together, there was nobody around to take the picture for us and none of us wanted any one of us to be left out from the picture. It took us around 30 minutes to find somebody to take the picture for us. From thereon, I knew this issue had to be resolved as soon as possible. Later in the evening, we all went to a rooftop of a hotel for dinner. I started wondering, how do we get a beautiful picture of our surroundings while the whole group remains in the picture and without asking anybody take the picture for us. I thought of Google Earth and waited until Google Earth or another company went live. Earthnow is producing these satellites now.

Risks and challenges

Like every other kickstarter project, mine has 2 risks and challenges. The first is if the patent doesn't get issued, which is very unlikely because i paid two lawyers to conduct two different patent searches and nothing equivalent to my invention has come up. The second is if we don't come to an agreement with Earthnow to license their imagery which is also very unlikely because they are willing to let inventors participate in their invention. Thank you.
