About

 HELLO Kickstarters,

After smashing our Kickstarter goal in 2016 with our first HELLO device and getting over 1300% funded, we come back to Kickstarter to present to you 4 new HELLO products to change the way we communicate forever. 

Who are we?  

Who are we? We are Solaborate - an end-to-end encrypted communication and collaboration company. We believe that simplifying communication tools and service represents our greatest opportunity to improve people's lives. 

With the unbelievable support of a community of 900+ people from 60 countries all over the worlds, and shipping 100% of HELLO Communication devices to all our backers last year, we're incredibly excited to present to you HELLO 2 and four new HELLO products:   

Introducing: 

1. HELLO 2  
2. HELLO Touch TV + Whiteboarding  
3. HELLO Creator Edition

4. HELLO Controller

HELLO 2 - The World's Most Powerful Communication Device 

HELLO 2 is designed together with our community to address some of the most annoying video and audio communication issues we face today.

With significantly improved hardware and software, the second generation HELLO 2 transforms any TV into the world’s most powerful communication device for video conferencing, digital whiteboarding, wireless screen sharing, Alexa and Google Voice Assistant, TV streaming, gaming, live broadcasting, camera feed with motion and voice detection + infrared night vision, and more.

The HELLO Solaborate Messenger platform has been in the making for more than 6 years. With tight integration across our devices and mobile/PC platforms, we aim to make collaboration seamless. HELLO Messenger can be easily accessed via your Android, iOS, Web and Desktop Clients. 

HELLO 2 will also support the best video conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Google Hangouts Meet, Zoom, Cisco WebEx, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, BlueJeans, Polycom RealPresence, Fuze, Unify, and more.

HELLO Touch - Real time Video Conferencing & Whiteboarding

 
Powered by HELLO 2, the 65-inch HELLO Touch is the smartest and most affordable 4K Touch TV with 10 multi-touch points for real-time collaboration, digital whiteboarding, video conferencing, wireless sharing, and more.  

The primary function of HELLO Touch is to serve as a digital whiteboard with tight video and audio ingratiation so that your virtual teams in other physical locations can collaborate in real-time from any device without limitations.


The possibilities of HELLO Touch and Whiteboarding are virtually endless. 

HELLO Creator Edition

HELLO Creator Edition comes in a transparent casing, letting you see the inner workings of the device, which reflects our open source ideology in a physical aspect. If you didn’t get the hint already, we are now opening our platform for developers to build any hardware gadget extensions or software applications on top of our open platform.

This version of HELLO is designed and built specifically with the developer community in mind and we cannot wait to see what developers from all over the world will build on top of our platform.

HELLO Gadget Extensions

HELLO Gadget Extensions are a collection of connected products that enhance communication and interactions with HELLO devices. We built HELLO Button and Controller as an example to show you how easy it is to extend the HELLO capabilities, and we can’t wait to see what kind of gadgets you will create next.


HELLO Controller

The HELLO Controller  is a new way to play games through your HELLO device from the comfort of your couch anytime you need a break from work, or simply want to enjoy your time with family and friends.


Since you can now install any Android game of your choice on HELLO 2, our slick, super-responsive controller will allow you to play any game. A software version of the HELLO Controller which will make it easier to play games from your mobile phone will also be available on our HELLO Solaborate Messenger app.

The Making of HELLO 2 

Having learned a lot from the HELLO 1 experience and your feedback, making HELLO 2 in a sense was much easier. However we’ve spent much more work on ensuring that our passion for beautiful hardware and software is translated into a reliable and manufacturable device.

Hardware and software quality testing, reliability testing and manufacturing setup have been our go to words all along this project and we feel proud and ready to share our work and love with you.

HELLO 2 Features


Secure, sleek and feature-packed, HELLO 2 brings a whole range of new possibilities to life and is the ultimate all-in-one communication device for your home and office.  

It comes with built-in speakers, infrared night vision, Zigbee for home automation, NFC, hardware-based privacy buttons and 152-degree FOV coverage with automatic tilting. 

Video & Audio Calls

Crystal Clear Audio and Video Calls  

From sharing family moments to business meetings, HELLO 2 aims to make your life easier via communications. Need to make unlimited one on one or group audio and video calls for free whenever you need to stay in touch with your family and friends? With HELLO, they’re just a call away!

Tired of having to spend the first 10-15 minutes of every online meeting trying to properly establish the call or making sure you hear each-other? HELLO completely eliminates this problem by offering you crystal clear unlimited audio and video conference calls for free, anytime you need to have an online meeting with your remote teams, clients, or even potential customers.  

HELLO 2 is equipped with powerful hardware, with a 4K HDR sensor, an array of 4 beamforming microphones for noise cancellation, makes sure to pick up sounds and your expressions from a distance 8m+, even in the most challenging environments. To start an instant video or audio call, use our HELLO Solaborate Messenger app or any other app of your choice.


Use Your Favorite Voice Assistant

 
We love our phones, but sometimes, after a long busy day, they are a drag. That is why we integrated the magic of Alexa Voice Assistant and Google Assistant into the HELLO 2 - to always answer your questions and commands.  

Listen to your favorite playlists, make audio and video calls, send and receive messages, get weather and forecast information, find out sports scores, order food, and more — in real time!

Alexa Voice Assistant

Interact with your favorite voice assistant productively and let it integrate with your routine to help you get things done! Alexa Voice Assistant and Google Assistant are able to learn from your behavior and be there for you whenever you need them to.

Google Assistant

Seamless Home Automation

HELLO 2 has full integration and support with Alexa and Google Assistant for full home automation compatibility.

Create your personal area network for home automation with Zigbee which can be easily installed in your home with no need for additional cables.

Wireless Screencasting

With HELLO 2 it's super easy to share and cast any content in real time from your phone or laptop while you are near the TV or away from it. Share an experience, a presentation, a picture or a funny video with everyone in the room.

 

Wireless Screen Sharing

 
In a hectic world like ours, it is always smart to be as much productive and efficient as you can. Want to share something interesting with your team or simply make a presentation without any wires.

Gaming & TV Streaming

Switch to your favorite TV Mode - be it Gaming or TV Streaming, whenever you feel like playing video games or watching movies with your family and friends.

HELLO Gaming

We all know the best bonding memories with your family and friends happen when you play games and have fun in each other’s company. HELLO brings that fun back to the big screen in your living room or office. Just switch to Gaming Mode and play any Android game you want, even when you are at work and need a refreshing short break.


HELLO TV Streaming

 
The TV Streaming mode will allow you to only see streaming apps on your Home Screen. Watch TV through any Android app you have installed on your HELLO to follow your favorite series or movies using Netflix, Youtube, HBO NOW, KODI or other TV streaming providers.  

No need for extra cables or boxes. All you have to do is find time to catch up with the latest episodes, sit back, and enjoy.

 

Collaboration Mode 

Collaboration Mode allows you to link your Google or Office 365 Calendars and start meetings directly from your HELLO, with just one click. Whether the meeting was scheduled in Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Zoom or other communication apps, HELLO will open them and your meeting will be ready to start. 

HELLO Rooms Controller

Never second guess a room’s schedule. HELLO Rooms Controller app is designed to start a meeting with one click. It supports both HELLO video app and third-party video apps. Its has built in integration with Google and Office 365 calendar so that scheduling and meeting is super simple. It also has SIP Phone dial-in and out including interoperability between SIP clients. You do not own a Touch TV ? No Problem, HELLO Rooms Controller will allow you to cast your touch input to any TV. 


Camera Feed With Motion Detection and Night Vision 

Easily check on your home, kids, or pets – when out and away. And if any unusual activities may occur — when uninvited friends come by or even Santa dropping by — motion-activated notifications will pop on your phone, offering you an excellent and secure connection with your home, when needed.

The Camera Feed of HELLO 2 is packed with motion detection as well as infrared night vision features which offer you full power and let you know whenever something moves in front of your HELLO at home or even office so you will be alerted at all times and take the necessary measures, even when it’s dark.

Install any Android Apps 

HELLO 2 comes with numerous pre-installed apps such as Skype, Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, Amazon Chime, Google Hangouts Meet, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans, WebEx and more.  

HELLO 2 Integration with Microsoft Teams 


Besides pre-installed apps, you’ll be able to install any apps of YOUR choice. Grab the freedom to personalize your HELLO and bring all your favorite apps in one place.

 

Easy Setup and Control


HELLO 2 is lightweight, compact, and easy to set up. Simply unbox it, plug in the power adapter and connect the HELLO device to any TV via an HDMI cable. Download the HELLO Solaborate Messenger app to scan your unique QR code and you’re good to go within two minutes!

To assure you have the best possible experience, you have the option to control the device through its hardware air mouse remote control that comes with it inside the box, or through the remote app for both Android and iOS. Just pick your favorite!

Automatic Tilting

To ensure full-view for professional-quality video HELLO 2 offers automatic tilting. Adjust the tilting remotely through our HELLO Solaborate Messenger app or by simply touching the ring around the HELLO 2 camera.

Automatic Tilting - View from the HELLO 2 

 
                                  

Crafted from 6000 Series Aluminium & High-Quality plastics/silicone, HELLO 2 offers reliable durability combined with elegance to best fit any home or office.

With HELLO Creator Edition we're showing the inner workings of HELLO 2, both physical and software so we can feed our engineering spirit and build what we love together. Transparent. Open. Beautiful.

Built-in Hack-Proof Video and Audio Controls for Ultimate Privacy

 
We believe that privacy is a fundamental human right and that’s why we engineered HELLO 2 with two built-in hack-proof privacy controls and end-to-end encryption for everyone’s protection and peace of mind. Unless hackers come to your office or home in person, there is no way for them to access the audio and video of your HELLO 2 when you’ve deactivated them with the privacy buttons. When you activate them, the microphone and camera lines are physically cut from the system (going into the SoC). Therefore software cannot control them.


Near Field Communication (NFC)

NFC will allow you to easily jump into a whiteboarding session or video conferencing room, and share content or files of your choice through the HELLO 2 by simply bringing your phone close to the device.  

When you join any office meeting room that uses HELLO 2, you can be set up and ready to go with a personalized experience in a matter of seconds!

Dual Screen Support 

The new dual-screen feature allows you to connect HELLO 2 with two TVs at the same time so that you can use two different features on two separate TVs. If you need to use Whiteboarding and Video calling, Screen Sharing and Video Calling, and so on at the same time, you can use the dual-screen support to fully use whiteboarding on one TV, and fully see the video call feed on the other.

Risks and challenges

Risks are very low as we’ve done this before and learned so much with you in our first and very successful Kickstarter campaign for HELLO I. We delivered 100% of HELLO devices and have offered and continue to offer 24/7 support to all our backers. Having learned from our prior experience we started work on HELLO 2 early on and made sure we passed all the development stages and we are ready for mass production.
This time we are counting on a bigger team which has grown from 47 people to over 80 during the past year.

We’ve been working very hard to address all your feedback and innovate on top of it. We’ve poured all our effort to bring this device to life, and we’re confident that all our backers will love our HELLO products as much as we do.

As with any product designed for mass production, manufacturing HELLO 2, HELLO Touch TV, HELLO Creator Edition, HELLO Button, and HELLO Controller requires injection molding, equipment setup, and certifications that will demand additional costs and development time. Your pledges will help getting around some of these costs. As a ticket of appreciation and early-on help, when it’s most needed, we’ll ensure that you as a HELLO backer, not only will receive the product(s) you pledge in a timely manner, but also have access to lifetime use of all the features we offer.
Our development team has already started working on delivering all new HELLO products, and unless confronted with an issue beyond human control, we will deliver the products to you with the highest possible quality.
