 Darts Connect is the world’s first home use dartboard equipped with a built-in camera. The wide-angle camera not only allows you to observe every shot of your opponents, it also serves as the most important anti-cheating mechanism that ensures the fairness of the game during a network match.

To make the online battle experience even better and enhance interaction between players, you may enjoy the in-game real-time voice and text messaging with other opponents!

We believe your excellent skills and precision need to be recognized. That’s why we’ve created the Global League Table. Everyone is given a Power Rating based on your own performance as well as a relative rating on an adjusted ELO score. Play more and improve your skills. Challenge the best players globally to climb to the top of the League! 

Noise could be the worst nuisance to your family members during your practice. We perfectly understand your concern and we’ve strived to create the most silence dartboard without any compromise on the solid feeling upon every single hit.

With silicon film installed inside and high quality nylon polymer as the exterior, Darts Connect holds every dart firmly producing only a rarely audible noise, making it the perfect choice for every living room.

On the other hand, our dartboard is well built for intensive practice and we place durability as one of the highest priorities. Nylon plastic is used for the impact compartments to ensure both durability and elastic recovery. The precise engineering ensures every hole extremely durable compared to all the other soft-tip boards in the market.


We know you hate putting screws in a wall. So we have made our board compatible with 3M Picture Hanging Stripes to ensure a damage-free hanging exprience. (Don’t worry, we have three holes for you to hang the dart board with screws just in case.)

To make the hanging even easier, we’ve tried our best to reduce the weight of the dart board by using the water droplet design to minimize the size and hollowing the back of the board to minimize the weight.

    

Darts Connect is a revolution that could only come true with the seamless integration of precise engineering, mechanical design and intelligent software programming. That’s why we have formed a team of darts enthusiasts and seasoned entrepreneurs to realize our dream.

Hardware Breakthroughs

It is no easy task to strive for the best balance between durability, noise reduction and exterior design. Having partnered with one of the best OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in the world, we have experienced the combination of different materials, modules and assembly methods through numerous prototypes for more than one year. We’ve made sure Darts Connect is fully functional and perfectly ready for mass production before launching our Kickstarter’s campaign. And we will not stop to continue improving our product.

Software Programming

We have worked with our UX designers to create an intuitive and simple user interface. We also understand a stable network match is crucial to your online darts experience. Our computer engineers have built a solid server framework that ensures uncompromised and secure connections. Our server is also well prepared for a large number of active players online simultaneously.

                                                           

Risks and challenges

Each mechanical and electrical part needs to be faultlessly integrated into each other to make the perfect Darts Connect. Our OEM is publicly listed and has ample of experience in manufacturing electronics with absolute precision. Our team also maintains frequent communications to make sure all the components are manufactured to our strict quality standards.
Failure in tracking software bugs in our program will also lead to malfunctioning of our Darts Connect platform. We have put tireless efforts into UAT (User Acceptance Testing) to ensure a bug-free Darts Connect. Otherwise, we will act swiftly and place debug as our highest priority when players discover new flaws in the platform.
We understand that even the world’s biggest server could crash one day. And there will be no exception to Darts Connect. Despite we have constructed a very stable server framework, we cannot rule out all the possibilities and thus we have prepared for the worst. Our computer engineers are always ready 24/7 for emergency management to restore our server in case things go wrong, so that you could resume your exciting online battle without delay.

Our stated delivery schedule has already been a prudent estimate after considering many potential production risks. We cannot, however, prevent shipment delay due to external factors such as weather or disaster breakout. But we will adhere to our production schedule and communicate with our logistics partner frequently to ensure Darts Connect to arrive at your door step on time.
