About

The Litty concept is simple, a lamp fitted with the latest technology, packaged in a slimmed and well polished design in premium materials. And after a year of hard work and a unique attention to detail, we can finally introduce Litty, the smart wearable lamp.

 

 

 

We have been working hard to create a light that can be used anytime, anywhere with your safety in mind. The first step to achieving this was to acknowledge that no light is effective if it isn’t with you at all times. Hence, we wanted to create a lamp which is light, yet powerful and easy to mount.

We designed Litty with everyone in mind, we wanted a universal design that equally fits the young child playing outdoors as well as the teenager biking to school or the adult parent.

 

Litty is a new generation of smart lamps, where only your imagination limits the functionality. This is thanks to its unique mounting system and its powerful hardware and software. All of these features results in a completely new take on a personal light.  

We decided to design a system consisting of halo and a main light. Fitting different areas of usability, such as a wide angle glow and a focused center spotlight. 

 

Interfacing with all of these new features and modes required a completely new concept in how we control our light with ease. What we came up with is a unique bezel system without contacts or switches, just simply rotate the bezel and thanks to our microcontroller it will do all the work for you. It’s easy and intuitive to use, wherever you are.

Attaching your Litty have never been easier, thanks to a smart backplate system allowing you to mount Litty to almost anything with the help of all the different backplates. We’ve also published the 3D-files for the backplate-pattern so you can create and 3D-print your own!  

Kickstarter exclusive!
We will supply you with two extra mounts for free! 

  • Bike mount which will fit onto any standard bike-tubing.  
  • Clip mount which attaches onto any strap or edge, perfect for a dog collar!

What would a light be without the possibility to customize it to your needs and desires? Thanks to our Android and Iphone connectivity we can supply an easy interface for you to use and tailor your Litty to your preferences and needs.

Have you ever been in the situation of finding your old lamp having a flat battery when you actually needed it the most? Thanks to Littys sensors, which tracks your movements it will sense when you’re not using it and save your battery from going flat. We’ve integrated several different sensor settings for you to choose, to fit your movement patterns.

We at Litty Lights hate wires and connectors which get worn out, so we decided to equip Litty with a wireless charging system. This allows you to charge Litty easy and quickly in 3h hours, so you’re always ready for new adventures!

Bringing Litty anywhere was one of our main goals and thanks to our unique design we can offer a completely hermetically sealed design which will easily withstand IPX8 classificaiton.

Every year thousands of pedestrians and cyclists are injured in traffic related accidents, many of which are because of poor visibility. Did you know the risk of being injured or killed in traffic is three times as large when darkness falls?

There is however a very simple solution to reduce the risk significantly and that is by the use of a bright personal light. Our vision and goal is to increase the safety of people on the go, in urban areas as well as on the countryside. This was done by designing a light so versatile and applicable it fits any imaginable situation you can find yourself in.    

With an extremely compact and lightweight design, making it ultra-portable, Litty will always be there for you, when you need to be seen.

 

Customizing Litty have never been easier, simply download the free Litty App for your android or iOS device and connect to your personal light within seconds. When connected we’ve given you the complete freedom in how you configure the following:

  • 4 Mechanical Modes: Configure your most used modes to your specific desires.  
  • 6 Virtual Modes: These modes can only be switched to from the Litty App. 
  • Motion tracking: Configure how Litty is interacting with your movement.

 

There are almost as many light modes as applications for Litty, there are literally millions of different ways of expressing yourself with Litty. All of the modes are RGB customizable and you can set the speeds and delays to your specifications.

  • Rotation: Rotating Halo in any desired color and brightness.  
  • Blink: Make yourself super bright and be even more energy efficient!
  • Pulse: Pulse your halo or center spotlight!  
  • Combo: Mix different modes of the halo and center spotlight!  
  • Party: Go crazy and swirl through any colour imaginable! 

Here are a few examples of what you can do with your Litty! 

 

 

 

 

Since one of our major goal is to increase the usability of personal lights in our daily lives we’re supplying Litty with everything you need to get started. This include the Litty lamp and the kickstarter exclusive mounts consisting of a bike and clip mount. The bike mount easily attach to any standard bicycle bar. And for your more rugged adventures the clip mount will be a great additive to your collection for when you really need Litty to be attached.  

We’re of course also including a Qi-pad with your Litty lamp for your wireless charging! 

 

 We’ve packed Litty full of features and here are some hardware specifications!

 

 

 

During the last year we've developed several prototypes and and numerous iterations of the software/hardware to achieve our desired interface. Because the integration is so important for us we’ve been testing Litty’s mobile interface relentlessly for the last months. Below you will find a brief suggestion and proof of concept to show you the unedited functionality of Litty.

We’ve worked in both small and major projects, therefore we know that planning is everything for success, so to bring this project into reality we’ve got a very clear path in how we’re going to bring Litty into reality.

 

Hey, we’re the creators of Litty, two friends who met at the Swedish university of Linköping 8 years ago, with a common interest, product development and design. Since then we’ve achieved several successful projects together, but now it’s finally time for us to launch a new independent project. It has been some very long days and nights to create a product that we are really proud to bring to the world but we’re finally here. So please help us and bring litty to life.  

Your sincerely Teodor & Viktor. 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Developing any product from scratch poses a lot of technical challenges. Specially when the requirements are set very high, such as low weight and size demands which have been major factors during the product development phase. Together with other technical challenges such as having the greatest possible battery life and custom software features, makes Litty an overall advanced product that needs to be thoroughly tested.

Furthermore, with the goal to make Litty a daily companion in your everyday life, it must be tested for durability, splash proofing, stress and drop testing, etc. to make sure it can stand up under the wear and tear of all your everyday situations.

Product Evolution
For the last year we’ve been developing and testing an incredible amount of iterations before we came up with the final design. This process and with the help of our experienced manufacturing partners, we have identified the majority of potential design issues and roadblocks. However, we want our backers and friends to know that as we finalize the design of Litty and move into mass production, the product’s details may evolve.

Every change we make will be done with the aim of delivering the highest quality Litty as possible. Our commitment is to keep you updated through the project on all product changes.

We estimate that shipping will be done in the end of January 2018. This shipping date accounts for as many worst case scenarios as possible that we can foresee today and we are working hard towards shipping Litty on time. However, it is not possible to account for every scenario that we may come across. We work closely with all our partners to identify and address risks, and we will keep you updated on adjustments to the delivery schedule. At the end of the day, our goal is to deliver the best quality product into your hands that you will love.
