About

Smoking has been a well-known problem for many years. People are smoking all over the world and its been estimated that almost one billion people is addicted to tobacco. According to WHO (World Health Organization) half of the tobacco users will die in before hand.

Many countries are taking bigger steps towards a non smoking world. Australia, Norway and Sweden are some of the countries that is working hard for a non smoking society. We believe that our product is going to help the world get there faster and easier. Let's make this happen!

    

 

 

 

With advanced technology and sophisticated simplicity we have created a different kind of cigarette package. This smart cigarette package wants you to be in control instead of the addiction. 

 

Will be available in different colors.

 Inside the QUIT app is where you will find all of its features. All of the settings are made threw the app. Decide how long intervals the smart case is going to be locked, see how much money is saved on using QUIT and how many minutes of your life is being saved along with a number of other features. The app is well integrated with the smart case.

One of the features is the Forum. Inside here will you be able to send messages, share your experiences as well as share your progress with others. Having support from friends and family but also from other people who are experiencing the same problem as you are very important. It's a big boost in the pursuit of a healthy life.

The smart case is programmed to send a notification to the phone when its being unlocked. We do not want to encourage anyone to smoke by saying that the cigarettes are available, so with the notification comes a little encouragement to tell you that you have been doing fine without cigarettes and how long it was since your last smoke. Inside the app you will always be able to see how much time it is until the smart case unlocks. QUIT will be lit green when its ready to open.

 • The electronic hardware consists of the following parts: 

- Key lock electronics 

- Microprocessor and memory

- Bluetooth communication

- Power supply with battery

• A low power microprocessor with integrated memory controls all peripheral parts as well as communication via Bluetooth to the cell phone app. To achieve lowest power consumption the system is designed to remain in sleep mode as long as possible. C++ is used as programming language along with Contiki RTOS.

• The Bluetooth circuit is a Bluetooth Low Energy ver. 4.0 chip (also named Bluetooth Smart) for communication with the related cell phone.

• The key lock electronics consists of an electromagnet operated locking mechanism for locking and unlocking the lid. A half bridge transistor stage is powering the electromagnet. The key lock electronics also report the status of the lid to the microprocessor.

• The power storage and charging include both voltage regulator for all circuits but also microprocessor controlled charging of the lithium battery. 

What about charging? 

QUIT has a high efficiency litium battery. The smart case has up to two weeks of battery life. Simply charge the smart case for two hours and it will be ready for use again.  

We offer an alternative to the chemical products that are already out on the market. According to Mikael Sandström (doctor of medicine) one third of every smoker wants to quit their addiction. To put that in context: there is a big market. And we believe that with our way of quitting, smoking will decrease. To be more specific - it will be easier to quit. The perks of using QUIT’S smart cigarette package and the QUIT app are many, here are a few examples:

  • Feels good to be in control
  • Interesting to try something new
  • Looks good 
  • Environmental friendly 
  • Less expensive

Everybody knows how dangerous smoking is. So we don't want to bore you with any details but we can say this: every sixth second someone loses their life because of smoking. According to WHO (World Health Organization) around one fifth of the Earths population is addicted to tobacco and every year seven million people are being killed because of it. 

However, smoking is not only extremely dangerous its also very expensive. In the United States alone nearly $170 billion is being spent on medical care to treat smoking-related disease in adults. With QUIT you will personally save more money and most importantly you will save your health.

Around 3/4 of the crowdfunding will be invested in development. The remaining part will be invested in production and marketing.
