THANK YOU TO OUR AWESOME BACKERS
HUGE THANKS to all of you who supported us to realize KEEO. We couldn’t do this without you! You provided us with helpful notes and hints, motivating messages and comments and by that, you gave us so much positive energy throughout the campaign. We love the idea of Kickstarter! The community is unbelievably powerful and we are glad that we were a part of it. Now we continue our work by producing your KEEOs. We know that each and every one of you is going to have a lot of fun with it. As we do this we will continue to keep you informed with periodically updates.
Once again, thank you for your gorgeous support!

KEEO Carbon is an innovative and interactive key holder. With one push of a button it makes the right key pop out and also lets your smartphone know where it is. Losing KEEO Carbon is nearly impossible: the iOS and Android app allows KEEO to communicate with your smartphone through the new and energy-saving Bluetooth® Smart technology. KEEO Carbon holds three regular household keys on the inside and as many keys as you like (e.g. bulkier keys such as your car key) on the outside loop. Thanks to the PLUG'N'SCREW system, your keys can be installed simply without any modification to them. Check out our video above and learn more about KEEO Carbon.
Designed. KEEO is designed with carbon for a unique look and feel, coming in different colors.
Quality. KEEO Carbon does not compromise quality. It is nearly unbreakable due to the use of high-tech material from aerospace and Formula 1 engineering. KEEO Carbon is carefully assembled by hand and runs through extensive quality checks before leaving production. We think that this is worth the extra effort.
One hand only. The ONE-BUTTON-CONTROL lets you select any of your keys automatically with the push of a single button. Designed for a one hand only use, leaving your other hand free.
FindMe function. KEEO Carbon and your smartphone really love being together. This is because your KEEO Carbon and your smartphone are able to connect using the energy saving Bluetooth feature and the iOS / Android App. So when they are separated they will alert you, preventing the loss of either your smartphone or your KEEO Carbon.
No scratches. The smooth, round design of KEEO Carbon keeps your keys in place preventing scratches to your belongings.
Quiet. Holding your keys in place, KEEO Carbon allows no rattle since all keys are held fixed in the carbon housing.
User-friendly. There is no need for your keys to be processed or modified. Installing them will only take a minute – just do it yourself with the “plug’n screw-system”. Also, it is very easy to take out KEEO Carbon from your jeans/bag pocket due to its smooth surface and slim design.
Attach your car key to the loop on the outside shell of KEEO Carbon.
Optionally KEEO Carbon holds an internal USB stick to comfortably enable you to carry and protect your files.

All regular household keys fit into the inside of KEEO Carbon. Bulky keys such as your car key can be attached to the outside loop.
It is our dream to bring KEEO Carbon to life! For this reason we have chosen the lowest possible base goal. KEEO Carbon is a gadget offering many creative possibilities such as an App, color personalization, and much more to come. With our stretch goals we can realize these possibilities with you step-by-step. Thank you so much for your support!

Our first passion for KEEO arose in 2010. Back then, each of us carried huge unimpressive and mostly ugly key chains, pinching into our legs and wearing out the pockets of our pants. Even worse, each of us experienced running mad because we couldn't find our keys, getting all nervous until we found them lying somewhere in the house we didn't expect them to be, because they fell out of our bag or other similar stories. We thought we needed to solve this issue!
Isn't it funny? We have stylish wallets for our money, protective cases for our smartphones, but what about our keys? Aren't they one of the most important things we use every day? Keys open the doors to our privacy. So shouldn't we keep them safe and protect what is important to us?
This is why we decided that it is time to give our keys a safer and neat appearance. Something worth their importance.Something that makes them look great next to your wallet and your smartphone.Something that makes them appreciated and gives you a great feel in your hand. Something that makes you feel safe, because you always know where your keys are.
BE A PART OF KEEO
KEEO Carbon is fun to use. We are excited to share it with you but in order to manufacture it, we need your help!
Over the past three years we have built several prototypes and tested them heavily. Constantly we have revised and improved the design and mechanics. Now we are ready to share KEEO Carbon with you. Your pledges will help us set up the first production and bring KEEO Carbon to your home. In the meantime help us spread the word about KEEO. Like us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and tell your friends about us. Help us share the passion and the story of KEEO!
Risks and challenges
In order to develop KEEO Carbon, we have been working very hard in the last months. We have tested different materials, build several prototypes and constantly tried to include as many additional functions to KEEO Carbon as possible (e.g. LED light)
Even though we are very confident that KEEO Carbon is a must have item, we see our biggest challenge in finding enough viewers / followers. So for this, we need your support! Help us by sharing our project with your friends and fellows, in your blogs, etc.
We know that there always can be unexpected challenges along the way, but we promise we will keep you updated anytime about eventual struggles and progress.
We are very confident to deliver KEEO Carbon to you in October 2014.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As many as you can carry. Three inside the housing and an unlimited number on the outside loop of KEEO Carbon.
Yes, there is sufficient space at the outside loop.
Approximately 100 feet or about 30 meters.
The inventor of the Bluetooth® Smart technology – Texas Instruments – claims that the battery lasts up to 2 years, depending on the frequency of the use. Afterwards it will need replacement. Naturally, searching KEEO on a regular or even daily basis will shorten its lifetime.
The bottle opener ist not connected with the One-Button-Control mechanism. which you use for the key slides to snap them out. You can pull out the bottle opener with your fingertips easily.
