A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
How does the FitSmoke work?
FitSmoke is born to be simply used. Set your profile, update your smoking habits (cigarettes smoked per day, money spent etc), schedule your goals and FitSmoke, the smart cigarette packet will do the rest.
The pack will gradually release the scheduled number of cigarettes during the day. You will receive a push notification at the appointed hour, and you will be able to choose to take the cigarette or keep it for later by approaching the smart packet to your smartphone.
Did you lock yourself out? Did you break the screen of your smartphone? Did your favourite team lose? Press the emergency button and choose between playing a funny game to think of anything else or get immediately your cigarette.
The device will help you to gradually decrease the smoked cigarettes, to track the time spent from the last cigarette, the money saved and to think twice before lighting up the further cigarette.
The device will unblock only by approaching the smartphone to the packet which communicate via Bluetooth. This will avoid your children to accidently reach out to the cigarettes but also to dampen your freeloader friends.
"Hey, can I bum a cigarette?"
"No, Buddy! It will decrease my score in FitSmoke!"
Sounds fair, eh?
Check: Track your smoking habits with the App and set gradual limits to decrease and stop smoking
Secure: Keep out the children from your cigarettes (and from your freeloader friends)
Keep calm: Addictive games which will take your mind off the cigarette
Reach the goals: Decrease your amount of cigarettes smoked, raise points and reach the No Smoking Cups
Saving: Track the money you’re saving by smoking less cigarettes
Community: Share the goals with your friends and challenge them
Easy to use
The brain of FitSmoke
How we designed the best smart cigarette packet
The most difficult challenge is to transform a simple idea in a simple product. That’s why we choose to focus on a easy to carry and use device. The FitSmoke packet is resistant and strong enough to keep your cigarettes from being squashed. The rounded corners and the smooth shape allow the packet to best fit in your pockets or bag. The FitSmoke packet may contain up to 20 cigarettes.
The idea came from Andrea, truck driver by profession and full-time inventor. During his long trips Andrea smoked one cigarette after another, especially to drive away the time and to pace is daily routine. He wanted to reduce smoking, but he couldn’t even remember how may cigarettes has smoked so he started to write it down in a piece of paper his goals and to hide the packet in order to keep the cigarettes out of his reach.
And then suddenly the intuition: a smart packet to keep track of the cigarettes smoked and to quit smoking. He built a team composed by a web developer and logistics expert; a legal and marketing manager; a product designer and a communications responsible.

Risks and challenges
We are working hard to get this product ready for the market by curating full-scale manufacturing and shipping, but producing consumer electronics is never easy. We are confident in our expertise to fulfill the project on the scheduled time.
Keep in mind that there are always issues that can arise, such as iterations during the tooling process or delays in production. It will be our priority to keep you updated.
Despite this we are ready to run the production and we need you!
