NEVER LOSE YOUR VALUABLES
NEVER LOSE YOUR VALUABLES

 

 

You can admit it. We’ve all left our bag at the bar, left the house without our keys, or tore the living room apart searching for our phones. Looper saves you from frustration, anxiety, and wasting time.

First, attach Looper to any of your belongings. Then, the mobile app will connect with Looper's Bluetooth sensor, which is embedded inside the tassel. If you leave your belongings behind and the distance between you and Looper exceeds a specified distance, both your phone and Looper will sound an alarm. 

Are you having trouble finding your belongings that are attached to Looper? Simply tap “Find it” on the mobile app and Looper will ring. Ah-ha! There’s your stuff!

Still having trouble finding your belongings? Just check the map on your app to find exactly where Looper was last located. You can also share the location of your lost item to your friends.

 

But now, what if you lose your phone? That’s no problem at all! Press a seamlessly designed button on Looper to make your phone ring. Never waste precious time searching for your phone again.

For those times when you don't want Looper to ring, take advantage of Looper’s Do Not Disturb mode. Whether you are in a meeting, watching a movie or simply do not want Looper’s distance-tracking feature to sound an alarm, manually turn on and off alert sounds.

  • Map location

HOME MODE : MINIMAL BATTERY USAGE ALGORITHM

Within this fashionable accessory, there is a small battery (LR44). Normally, its battery life is approximately one year; however, with our patented algorithm we were able to extend Looper’s battery life to enhance the user experience. When the app recognizes that you are home, battery usage will automatically decrease

 Looper arose from the question: What is good technology?

We believe that life and technology should exist in harmony. Looper is the result of synthesizing smart technology and impeccable style

Design Components

  • Inspired by Rings - Rings are a token of the special connection between you and your lover, family, or friend. Inspired by the shape and significance behind rings, we designed a ring-shaped crown to symbolize your connection to your valuable belongings. 
  •  Seamlessly Hidden Button - To call Looper, there is a button on the face of the tassel. Tucked under the leather, the hidden button makes for a seamless design. 
  • Leather Tassels Designed for Durability - Not only is the tassel designed to be fashionable, but it is also designed to be durable. By controlling the thickness of the leather, Looper is made to withstand daily activities. Additionally, the small holes above the leather skirt keep the skirt from tearing apart.

 

 

LEATHER : HIGH QUALITY FROM ITALY

We only want the best for our customers, so we only use the highest- quality leather from Italy. Looper’s leather tassel is quality you can feel

CROWN : INSPIRED BY THE JEWELRY CRAFT PROCESS

An important component of Looper is its crown. The crown is hand-crafted while the lettering is carved by a mechanical laser

  • A symbol of specialty - The Crown is hand-crafted similar to the jewelry-making process
  • A cap for the battery - The crown isn’t only for decoration but also serves as a cap for the replaceable battery
  • The mark of a button - There is a seamlessly hidden button located under the lip of the crown

With additional $5, engrave the name or initials of your friends, family, lover, or even your own! You can engrave English letters or phone numbers. Don't miss the opportunity to have or give a gift of a lifetime!

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

Timeline of Looper : Looper is in the homestretch!

Since our project’s inception back in 2015, we put our blood, sweat and tears to develop an unprecedented product that integrates both the technology and fashion industries. Finally, Looper is now on Kickstarter to meet people like you. As a backer, Looper will exclusively be in yours by November.

 

Our Story: Bringing Technology to Life
Hello! We are IDIO Creative Works. IDIO stands for “I Discover Invisible Opportunities.” 
Our vision is to bring technology to our daily lives through design. Today, technology
 seems just as vital and ubiquitous as air. We truly believe that technolgoy has the ability
 to fit into our lives like a perfect puzzle piece; the power of technology solely depends 
on how we design its purpose. Here at IDIO, we strive to redefine the way technology is used. Through our discoveries, life will get even sweeter.

Why Kickstarter?
So why are we here on Kickstarter? We wondered: What if a tassel can serve a beneficial purpose by safeguarding our belongings? By combining a tassel and tracker, Looper was born. Our team believes that Kickstarter is the best channel to connect to like-minded backers who are innovators, early adopters, and are just as fascinated by technology and design as we are. Our dream is to bring tech to life- and now you can help bring Looper to life.

Risks and challenges

As with any smart hardware project, there are natural risks and challenges in engineering and manufacturing. We've done our best to minimize risks for backers: while designing Looper, we visited numerous manufacturers for quality and took into consideration the production process of Looper’s inner body, metal crown, and leather skirt.

In addition, we have already chosen the best contract manufacturer in South Korea to begin designing the tools that will create Looper’s metal crown. We have also agreed to work with a company that provides only Italian leather to ensure we maintain Looper’s premium leather quality.

Our team is confident that we can meet our projected dates for production and delivery. However, unexpected delays can occur due to manufacturing issues, component shortages, and possibly more. We promise to do our best to be as transparent as possible, keep you updated during the process, and work diligently to resolve any issues as they arise.
