Use your iPhone to control your Power Point Presentations, Media, or Game Playing

KUDOS iPhone Presenter for PowerPoint:

Utilizes the advance sensors in your iPhone to control your PC.  It can be used as a presenter, a media player controller, or a game controller. 

Technologies: 

  • Three-axis gyro sensor built in iPhone(s)
  • Accelerometer built in iPhone(s)
  • 2.4GHZ RF transmitter    (KUDOS Presenter) 
  • USB RF receiver              (KUDOS Presenter)
  • iPhone App 

How it works:

The KUDOS TECH iPhone app collects the data from the iPhone touch screen, then sends commands to the KUDOS Presenter (a 2.4GHz RF transmitter) via the audio port.  The receiver plugs into your PC via the USB port. Your PC then identifies the KUDOS Presenter receiver as an external USB keyboard.

Your PC identifies KUDOS iPresenter receiver as an external USB keyboard.

Interface: iPhone Dock Connector vs. Audio Jack

Instead of limiting ourselves to just the iPhone, we decided to maximize this device's potential. We use the audio connector to communicate instead of the iPhone connector.  By using the audio jack, this means we can write apps to support Android or Windows phones in the future.

Instead of using iPhone connector, KUDOS Presenter uses audio connector to communicate.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We did a pilot run and test marketed it in China with our demo app. No issue is reported from China team. The product is produced in an ISO certified factory. The product and factory have been audited and approved by a Japanese company.

Currently we have a small inventory and are looking to build more. The material lead-time is 6~8 weeks. However, there is a minimum order quantity at factory. We hope to reserve enough materials for next production run. If we didn't prepare enough materials, delay in production might happen..

FCC certification is required for distribution in the US. A similar Teleco certification for Japan has been done. The risk of not passing FCC is low.
