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

A message from the Battleist / DriftBit team:

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Kickstarter. While the campaign didn't really get out of 2nd gear, the DriftBit campaign has raised an amazing amount of interest from the wider Drifting and Motorsport industries. This has opened a massive amount of doors for us to move forward. - Which we're prerry pumped about.

In this regard, we see this campaign as a massive success and we'd like to thank everyone who pledged, shared, discussed and showed us some love.  

We're super proud and excited about the technology we've built and continue to develop. We look forward to seeing its full potential unleashed on a track near you soon.  

If you have a spare 30 seconds - we'd love your feedback! CLICK ME!

Thanks again,  

Keep those tires spinning, 

Battleist Team.

Do you want to Drift better? Don't burn cash upgrading your car.

DriftBit is the tool to improve your skills. Boost your driving!

Watch the above video above and see!

We're looking to get DriftBit into the hands of Drifters who we think need it. Like it? Think its cool? Help us! Pledge today and you don't pay until mid June. Even a Facebook share is good, but a pledge is better =)

You know what a "FIT-Bit" is right? A DriftBit brings performance tracking to your Drift car. Its awesome, accurate and shows where you can improve.

The DriftBit package consists of DriftBit device(goes in your car), iOS & Android apps and a web app all to produce and view awesome drift info. Go for a drive, come back, review your drift and identify what to do better. Yep, for real.

DriftBit will measure all aspects of your drift. Speed, Line, Angle, Rate to Angle & more.

Our app then presents that data back to you, so you can breakdown your drive and use that information to go out and throw down better next run.

What data will it show you? The stuff you wanna see:

  • Drift angle - How much angle your throwing.
  • Rate to angle -  See how snappy or lazy your transitions are.
  • Speed - See how fast / slow you are.
  • Line - See your initiation and the line u take. Important stuff.
  • Acceleration - See how you speed up / slow down duing a run.
  • Vehicle data from ODB2/Consult/CAN  /Analog . See RPM, throttle and more from your car.

+more to come as supports request them.

Your data can be live streamed. This means your pit crew, friends, or judges can see how you are throwing down. Anyone with a internet connection or phone can watch.

Our innovative technology can show you cool stuff about your car.

Horsepower? YEP.       0-60 speeds YEP.      Steering lock???? YEPPPPP.

DriftBit allows you to compare your run vs another drivers run. You can see if you're better or worse and why. Use it as a way to learn and improve, or to let everyone else know who is the boss.

Inside DriftBit is a whole lot of complex sensors and computer software to make all the magic happen. Using the latest in advanced motion sensors, GPS and computer wizardry. We've worked with the best suppliers and smartest industry people to get DriftBit super accurate and at an afordable price.

DriftBit uses Hillcrest Labs’ Freespace® motion technology and Bosch Sensortec sensors together to provide accurate motion detection and position

 DriftBit is breaking barriers and changing the game. Dont take our word for it. Checkout what the guys in the know say.

Over 2 years ago, a small team went drifting in Japan and one thing was missing. A way to see how we drove, and see how we could improve. DriftBit was born.
Supported by industry lead investors, a dynamic team of engineers, software engineers, designers and a few drift drivers, DriftBit is as you see it today.


Below is a short video of our story:

Engaging with our engineers, suppliers, manufacturers , supply-chain and all relevant business units that influence the delivery of DriftBit, we've developed an achievable and conservative timeline.  

Hitting our funding goal will allow us to meet our minimum order quantities and be able to produce and deliver DriftBit. Our values are based on the latest information provided to us by our third party providers who were picked due to their track record of delivering on time and within budget. A 10% risk mitigation factor has been put in place to ensure we have spare funds set aside should something unexpected arise. 

 DriftBit would not be possible by the continual support from all our industry partners. The best of the best. 

Checkout our awesome rewards. DriftBit kits come in a few different options.

Remember that only KickStarter supporters get exclusives such as custom colour combinations & your Battleist profile will be able to be "Pimped" outside of normal users =)

During this stage of the project, we have the ability to enable our backers to pick 2 of colours for your very own CUSTOM DriftBit. Make it yours.

What will you pick? Style it to suit your car or personality? Your call.

Only our KickStater supports will be offered this, and will never be offered again! You guys will also pick the colours that will end up in the final production units.

We will also be prioritising shipping of units, first come first serve basis. So the sooner you jump in, the sooner you'll be shipped your custom unit.

You will select your DriftBit's 2 colour combo at a later date.

While we've developed DriftBit into a product we think the drift community wants, we want to hear from you. We're opening up the conversation for you to let us know what you want from DriftBit. No idea is too crazy! Tell us. If its feasible, and enough drivers want it.... it could end up in DriftBit!
Make DriftBit yours. 

 The core Battlesit team comprises of the best of the best. From software developers, to Integrated systems specialists, and one of the best hardware engineers in the country. Our design specialist has some crazy plans for the DriftBit case, and out test driver Daniel, really knows how to throw a car around. We're committed,  experts in our fields, and excited to bring you this awesome product.

from the bottom of our hearts,
Thank you

Risks and challenges

After years of working intensely on DriftBit, we need your help to get it over the line. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to deliver DriftBit as promised, however our project has a number of risks that include:

Insufficient funds due to unforeseen expenses.
We have done our best to estimate the minimum funds required to successfully deliver the DriftBit including a risk mitigation buffer, however it is possible we may come up against something unexpected.

Manufacturing Problems / Delays
We have to acknowledge that this part of the project will be handled by a third party company and not completely within our control. However a strong track record and ample forecasting helps mitigate these risks.

Minor changes to the hardware/software as we transition to a production version.
As we transition from prototype to production we may need to make minor changes to the product as we design, build, test and learn. But rest assured, we don’t expect to deviate drastically from the current product. The unit’s hardware and/or software will only be modified if it is in the best interest of the product and therefore to the benefit of the supporters.

Estimated Delivery Dates
Although we’ve done our best to estimate timeframes and delivery schedules by adding buffers to underpromise and overdeliver these are still “estimates”.
