A Game Changer

Smartphones are amazing but what if they could do more?

Imagine multitouch no longer confined to a phone’s screen, instead having the surfaces around it becoming interactive. We did so and came up with a new and revolutionary way of using your smartphone. 

After playing around with the technology we realised the potential of what it could achieve and today we present our first product, focused on mobile gaming. 

This could be the start of something big, a new wave of mobile interactions.

Kickstarters! With your support, we’ll make this a milestone in tech history.

Mobile gaming should be more open

Most mobile games are single player and their controls are limited to what can be fitted on the screen.

We wanted games to be more than this, opening up for multiplayer and better controls.

Fuffr is REAL Social Gaming

Social Gaming is much more than some Facebook app asking you to become a zombie.

Social Gaming has been around for ages, in board and video games. It blends fun and joy with physical interaction and it tears down social barriers.

With Fuffr, we’re bringing this joy to the mobile experience.

Our first product is a smarthone case with IR sensors and BLE 

Touch Area Overview
Touch Area Overview

So, how do you extend the gaming area?

A bit simplified, you shoot infrared light out of each side of the case at the surrounding surface, tracking the placement and movement of the fingers. 

You then send all that data over Bluetooth Low Energy, making it accessible for anyone wanting to build an app with it. Of course we support all traditional Multitouch gestures.

With the possibility of adding many players to one game, this opens up for a whole new genre of mobile gaming.

The case will be available for both iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 6 and as a backer you can choose from the colours Atlantic Blue, Pretty Pink, Fuffr Black and Nordic White.

We’ve already manufactured and released a Dev Kit!

The Fuffr Dev Kit
The Fuffr Dev Kit

The great thing about this project is that we've already made the journey from idea, to design to a fully manufactured product with the Fuffr Dev Kit. 

Up until this date we have produced 1 000 pieces together with our Swedish manufacturing partner. That means we already have done the important job when it comes to sourcing and quality check of our suppliers and components.

Included: multiplayer games you'll want to play, now and tomorrow

This campaign marks the first steps in our quest to spread the Fuffr Movement and you are the most important part of it! As a backer of this project your automatically become a member of the Fuffr community, meaning we will listen to what games you want.

Developers all over the world are already working on the next generation of mobile games and when the campaign is over, we’ll announce a competition where they can compete to win fame and glory but also a cash price.

The top three games, by your vote, will each receive a price check of $10.000. Of course, all the three winning games will be included when we ship you the final product.

The Touch Case is built upon the Dev Kits technology

The final product comes in four styles!
The final product comes in four styles!

Developing the Fuffr Dev Kit gave us an opportunity to try our wings through all different stages of realising a product. Putting the product in the hands of ourselves and other users have made us rethink certain aspects of the design and feel.

Charging

The Fuffr Dev Kit was built to be as thin as possible (the final product still is) but making the charger as thin as the case itself is not the best solution. 

That’s why we’ve moved the charging port to the back of the case of the product, the new charger just snaps right onto it!

Buttons

On the Dev Kit, there are two buttons made specifically for developers to try out and customize their apps. The placement has not been optimal because of the thin profile of the case forcing the buttons to be small and hard to press. For the final product, there’s only need for one big button, placed on the back of the case!

Look and feel

Fuffr is all about having fun together with and the product should show that, that’s why we’ve developed a completely new design language for the final product!

Developers

Are you a developer? Cool, we like you already! We have already got an API up and running for Objective-C. Do you build games in Unity or JavaScript? No problem, we’ve got ports for those as well!

Be sure to check out our special pledge option for developers where you can receive a Fuffr Dev Kit as soon as the campaign ends!

Time Plan

Risks and challenges

Bringing the final version of the product to market is no easy task and nothing we take light-heartedly.

However, the team behind Fuffr is an experienced one with many years of designing, developing and manufacturing consumer electronics.

Crowdfunding consumer hardware is an entirely different area than a traditional product deployment, something Mai-Li and Oscar have first hand experience of since launching Mutewatch in 2010.

We know that even with the best planning, unexpected things can happen and when they do, how important it is to be transparent with the problem and how we aim to solve it.
