Bluejay: The world's first smart mount for your car

THE WORLD'S FIRST SMART MOUNT FOR YOUR CAR

The majority of car mounts are made from cheap plastic and they can barely hold your phone. While you might be able to get your phone in the right position, you then have to fiddle with numerous apps just so you can change your music, make a call or get directions.

We have designed Bluejay to be the last phone mount you’ll ever have to buy, and we made it smart. It uses Bluetooth Smart beacon technology, which keeps you connected beyond the confines of your vehicle and it comes with an app that reduces distractions while driving.

In a sea of uninspired and mundane design, we’ve created a phone mount that embodies the clean lines of modern automotive design. Bluejay uses the same materials that you would find in the most exotic and rare cars on the planet: carbon fiber and magnesium enriched high-grade aluminum.

You will get 3 different mounting accessories so you can attach Bluejay anywhere in your car and it will only take seconds to change the mount from one position to another.

Bluejay is designed to hold your phone in any position and orientation you desire.

What is the one thing that all supercars have? It’s obvious, carbon fiber. We developed Bluejay Carbon, so you can bring a piece of “super” to your own car. If you are a more straightforward kind of driver, we also have Bluejay Classic.

You can also get Bluejay with a Gold or Black aluminum finish.

If you are a true brand lover, or just want to put your company logo on the Bluejay, we also offer the Bluejay Custom Edition.

Bluejay Limited Edition comes in a magnificent graphite gray color, with a laser engraved numbered plate and a personalized message. It also comes with all three mounting accessories. Only 100 of these will be made.

Bluejay Titanium Yellow and Titanium Blue

Bluejay 24K Gold Edition is a handcrafted Kickstarter exclusive, limited to 2 Bluejays made of black crystal top and 24K solid gold.

Using a revolutionary multi-axis system, you can simply adjust Bluejay until your phone is in the perfect position, no matter where you mount it.

You will receive 2 different sized thin metal plates, which stick to the back of your phone (or between your phone and a protective case).

Bluejay’s powerful magnet will hold your phone no matter how bumpy the ride, and at the same time, will not affect your phone in any way.

Bluejay comes with three different mounting accessories: You get 3 adhesive pads, an air vent clip and a suction cup, the latter two hold the Bluejay in place using strong magnets. You can simply change the mounting position anytime you want.

Bluejay connects via a Bluetooth low-energy beacon that's placed inside the mount. It communicates with your smartphone, so it knows exactly where you are whether it’s in the car, on the road, or looking for a parking space.

How many times have you forgotten where you’ve parked? 

Well, Bluejay always remembers. It uses a combination of Bluetooth Smart and GPS so it will always guide you back to your car, even when there is no reception available.

Cant find your phone?

Double-tap Bluejay and your phone will ring.

The Ultimate Driving Dashboard

As soon as you place your phone on Bluejay, a dedicated driving app will immediately launch and your driving experience will become simple and distraction free.

Whether it’s making a call, changing your song, or finding the nearest parking lot, Bluejay gets you there in three taps or less.

 Bluejay app will be available on iPhones 4S or later and on Android 4.3+

Peace of mind in emergency situations

Stay safe on the road with Bluejay’s “do-not-disturb” mode and “take-a-break” notifications. In the worst case scenario, Bluejay’s crash detection can swiftly help you reach assistance with its pre-programmed SMS/emergency call.

Shortcut to your playlists

Integrated with multiple on-demand music services like Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud, as well as various podcasts and audiobooks collections, your road trips will be better than ever.

If your car stereo supports Bluetooth or AUX Bluejay app can play music through it's speakers.

Get there faster

Getting around just got a whole lot easier. Know exactly where to find the nearest gas station, parking space, restaurant or repair shop, just by looking at the screen. When you tap the icon, the turn-by-turn navigation will immediately launch.

Bluejay will also remind you about your next meeting and will guide you there so you will never be late again.

Calling and texting is now easier and safer

Because Bluejay is designed for the road, you can make calls, send quick messages or share your location with a single tap. And if your car supports hands-free mode, the app also works with that as well.

Personalized car insights

Check the integrated information panel to find out when you need to fill up, change the oil, or even your recommended tyre pressure. When your car breaks down, you can easily find the nearest repair shop or call roadside assistance.

 Connect your car to your world

Integrate your Nest, Hue or other smart home systems with Bluejay and add your favorite actions. Automatically check and lock the door when you leave, turn on the heat before you come home, check if you accidently left the lights on and much more.

Bluejay natively integrates with other 3rd party apps so you can do more than ever. You can report driving expenses, save your trips, set up a virtual driving instructor, add a racing dashboard, etc.

To bring Bluejay closer to the connected world we are also developing some other features:

  • Bluejay-to-Bluejay connections, which will create a smart network for Bluejay users
  • Automatic collection of loyalty points at gas stations
  • Automatic parking ticket system
  • Martin Mikeln - Team Lead, Hardware engineer and a passionate Audi lover 
  • Nicholas Bartlett - A serial internet entrepreneur and the company owner 
  • Luka Perović - A data scientist and developer who makes the Bluejay magic happen online
  • Bartek Dołęga - Hardware specialist and a Bluetooth expert
  • Slobodan Cvijetić - Industrial designer who ensured that Bluejay looks so damn good 
  • Amanda Gray - PR expert and copywriter who writes our successful story 
  • Maja Voje - Marketing and business development consultant 
  • Jure Knehtl - Kickstarter savvy digital marketer
  • Katja Slovenc - Talented photographer who made Bluejay look great

                    

Risks and challenges

We have been working for the past 11 months on developing a product that we are proud to share with the world. As experienced product designers, we have working prototypes, in addition to developing a strong network of potential distributors, which will help us take the next step in connected driving.

If we encounter unforeseen problems it may be possible that our intended delivery date will be postponed. If this happens we will notify all backers immediately.
