iScream - Smart Double Flavour Ice Cream Maker (Suspended)
iScream is a true smart home kitchen appliance that brings the best ice cream to your home.
iScream is not just about ice cream, it’s the whole experience... Go out with your kids and pick some raspberries, prepare the mixture that you know it’s healthy and delicious, then let the kids watch how the best ice cream is made. Combine that experience and family time with that delicious dessert you’ve just made and you’ll understand what iScream is all about. It really is unique. iScream is a new age, double flavor ice cream maker that connects to your smartphone of choice.
The new features have some great advantages: By connecting to your phone it enables you to simply manage the speed of paddles and by doing so, you are controlling, the consistency and texture of the ice cream and how intense the flavour will be.
The illumination colour is user adjustable.
iScream parts are dishwasher safe.
The App enables you to search for yummy recipes using the internet. When you find a recipe that you like, you can tag and store it as your favorite or share it with friends and family over Twitter or Facebook. You can also comment under the recipes and write what the best speed setting is for churning this specific blend of ingredients.
The app connects to your phone or tablet via Bluetooth and enables you to operate iScream manually or with guided recipes. You even get a notification when your ice cream is ready!
Browse a huge database of delicious guided recipes.
iScream is not only defined by the connectivity and a great app, but a double flavor bowl design separates it from other ice cream makers. Now you will be able to make not only one but two different tastes at once.
The appliances size is small enough so it fits in every kitchen and the mixing bowl fits in almost all deep freeze closets. The see-through lead enables you to see your ice creams or sorbets being made and you can stop the churning if you think the desserts are done. Because of a glossy smooth surface the appliance is easy to clean and you can safely wash the bowl and lid in a dishwasher.
Remember the perfect ice cream scoop that went live on Kickstarter last year? Midnightscoop is one of the most funded projects in the category. Now, after a really successful year, when all the rewards are fulfilled, the scoop is back. You can get it in a reward with iScream. It's the perfect ice cream duo.
We plan on packaging and shipping in late May 2016.
The team behind iScream are not only ice cream enthusiasts but also individuals with a background in electronics, software and hardware design. Years of experience in the industrial and automotive fields and a passion for new emerging technologies led them to join forces in 2014. Their vision is to use technological advancements of the informational era in order to contribute to a better, healthier and simpler life where each of us can concentrate on what is most important. For IM Vision team members enjoying the little things with friends and family comes first, so they are currently developing iScream - a product they too would love to make a part of their home. While preparing a healthy treat all of them saw room for improvement. The two flavour bowl makes ice cream making a stress free process since it eliminates fighting between siblings (Chocolate or berries?! Both!), the dishwasher safe parts and easily accessible recipes make the use a breeze. Also, they are turning their pickiness about design to their advantage - its great looks mean there is no need to hide it from the kitchen counter. The team values the clean modern lines on the outside and the smart and capable inside. Janez, Boštjan, Nina and other team members are excited to share their idea of a great ice cream maker with fellow ice cream lovers and are inviting you to become a part of this success story.
The design was made and perfected by Wilsonic Design.

Risks and challenges
As we have shown in the video and in the presentation this is a working prototype. Our team has worked really hard to execute this great idea into a great product and prepared it for the Kickstarter campaign. However there are still some risks and challenges.
Our prototypes were made with silicone molds and a few complex parts are 3D printed. There could be delays regarding the injection molds manufacturing and we also have to account long lead time for the tooling.
There are still some minor things to perfect, that’s what prototypes are for. We are working hard to perfect the iScream and ensure flawless operation. After that we will qualify for the required certifications. Hopefully that will go smooth.
Finally there is the reward fulfillment. We have worked with the biggest fright companies in the past and we hope that shipment won’t be the problem.
The team will work hard to complete the iScream and fulfill the rewards,
