What is X-base?

X-base is a display stand that wirelessly powers unique LED lights, enabling you to create stunning, illuminated displays with ease.  

Add spectacular lighting effects to your models, miniatures or even your aquarium. No technical knowledge or skill required.

X-base is already under development for the Japanese market, but with the overwhelming initial response we have received in Japan, we wanted to develop X-base for more countries through Kickstarter!

How does it work?


Through the exclusive X-base magnetic field resonance system, the X-base Power Station supplies power to the specially designed wireless LED lights.

When the X-base Power Station is turned on, the X-base LEDs automatically light up when they are placed within the power supply field.

Attach the LED lights to an object or just place them on the Power Station to see them light up. The X-base LED lights are wireless and waterproof, making them perfect for countless projects.


X-base’s magnetic field resonance system supplies power to the full 11.8 x 11.8 x 11.8 in (30 x 30 x 30 cm) display stand area.

The Power Station    

The Power Station base comes in 2 pieces, and assembles easily with the included screws. The sleek, black surface is the perfect display stage to let your creations shine.

Wireless power technology is now being put to use to charge devices like smartphones and electric toothbrushes. The X-base Power Station’s magnetic field resonance system has made possible the delivery of power to locations even farther out from the power source to include the three dimensional area of the display stand area.

  

Power Station Specifications 

   

   

The X-base comes with a Type A (America) AC Adaptor. If you live in a country that uses a different type, a converter will be necessary.

X-base LED Lights

The shining stars of the show - these specially designed, waterproof LED lights illuminate when placed within the X-base magnetic resonance field. No batteries, no wires, no preparation required.

The LEDs light up automatically.

Can you imagine the amount of work and skill it would take to do the intricate wiring of these tiny lanterns and then hide the power supply somewhere? With X-base, even traditionally complex projects like this are now easy enough for anyone!    

X-base LEDs can be used underwater, which was extremely difficult with conventional LEDs. New display ideas such as undersea battles and aquariums are just waiting to be explored.  

Extremely small, the LEDs can be installed even in very tight areas. The LEDs can be attached easily using commercially available adhesives or similar products. (*Adhesive not included.)

With the X-base’s ample power supply, up to 500 hundred X-base LEDs can be illuminated simultaneously.

Risks and challenges

During the development process and reward fulfillment process, there is always a possibility of delay caused from unexpected factors or problems we might encounter, so final design specifications may be subject to change.

Should changes in the schedule, design, or model specifications occur, we will communicate the details through the update section as soon as we can.

This funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will be spent for development and patent applications after the closure of the funding period. Therefore, we cannot accommodate requests for refunds after 14 days from the end of the campaign, disregarding willful misconduct or gross negligence on our part.
