WHAT IS THE PLAN?
plans to manufacture and sell the world’s first affordable dome
displays. TOOB has spent the last 2 years developing its 2nd generation
product TOOB Earth.
WHAT IS TOOB Earth?
Earth is a 1.2 Metre (4ft) diameter half dome which when used with a
standard projector** fitted with a standard lens can project an image
onto the inside curved surface giving the viewer the sense of being
fully immersed in the content.Think IMAX/ OMNI MAX but in the home.
One of the key
differentiator's is that the projector and screen are all contained within
the same footprint meaning you no longer need to compromise on space.
Earth is the first in a range of dome products planned and will be the
foundation for the world’s first consumer focused Gaming/ Simulation/
Film curved screen company. Its uniquely patented design allows you to
place your dome on any hard surface or on our GRAVITY-E adjustable
the GRAVITY-E stand adds a further layer of flexibility as it then
allows you to either use TOOBs brand new TSR/ TFX & M-spec
or use many existing racing or flight rigs which can be
comfortably slide underneath. Or simply use the GRAVITY-E as a furniture
piece in your room for watching stereo 3D movies.
TOOB is well suited for the corporate environment and this is a great opportunity to get a TOOB and be one of the first to showcase TOOB Dome technology with your business. Our 007 reward shows how you can take a TOOB product and customise it with a unique brand or design. In April 2011 TOOB attended the Gadget Show Live in Birmingham (UK) visted by over 40,000 tech hungry guests. TOOB was so popular it increased footfall on our partners stand by thousands. The increased footfall generated more sales. We gave 1400 demos during the event. That guarenteed 1400 more potential customers + the 1000s of people that stoped to look at our technology.

WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
founders have taken the company from concept to a pre-production stage, but need your help to purchase the tooling and raw materials in volume
to enable the first production runs. With tooling in place the company
can then take commercial orders and the momentum you will create will
carry the company into the next phase, which is full scale production.
WHAT DOES ** MEAN?
projectors are compatible with TOOB however it is recommended that you
contact your manufacturer to ensure it meets the required
specifications. TOOB has a certified product section on the website
showing certified projectors. CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
IMPORTANT - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

you", gifts which reflect the level of donations you give. Below we set
out some important questions and answers to ensure transparency prior to

The prototypes don’t look the same as the images seen in the video and on the website?
The prototypes whilst closely resemble, do not match exactly the design
of the production models and are intended as proof of concept only.
The pictures in the video and on the website don’t look real?

production products taken from the actual production design 3D models

gifts. Any changes if any we may make will be to improve the product and
the experience of our users.

and unknowns, whilst we have given an approximate timescale please note
that the period of time may be shorter than 9 months or longer. We will
keep our donators informed of progress.
