About us

Wearwise is a project started by three proud Notre Dame domers! Peter Chiang is a Chemical Engineer graduating in 2018, Fred Choi is a Finance major graduating in 2017, and David Wang is an 92' MBA graduate. We all have international backgrounds in places such as United States, Korea, China, and Taiwan! We have been working hard on this project together for around a year and are very proud to have the prototype ready to show!

Why WearWise?

Yes! Shall we get started? 

WearWise will change the way you take pictures from now on! 

Have you ever wanted to take a full body selfie with your significant other without awkwardly asking someone to take it for you?

Have you ever wanted to take a huge group photo but your selfie stick isn't long enough?

Well you have a solution now!

Introducing WearWise

Wearwise is a small 25gram, 1.6 inch x1.6 inch x0.8 inch (42mm x 42mm x 21mm) portable camera that you can bring anywhere with you to take videos and pictures. 

Camera

It features a 8M camera with a 120 degree wide angle that takes impressive photos with amazing clarity . It can also shoot 1080p videos at 30fps!

The wide angle and high resolution recording makes it perfect for parties and/or travelling. This way, you will never miss a precious moment!

Connectivity

WearWise uses Wi-Fi instead of bluetooth to connect your device to your phone! The increased bandwidth and range allow the device to live stream the video to your phone or preview your pictures at full resolution without any lag or interruption.

Battery

A lightweight battery that can let you record videos for up to 60 minutes uninterrupted or take 2048 photos per charge! The WearWise camera can also last up to a week on standby with one charge. 

If it does run out of battery, you can charge it right away by using any kind of MicroUsb cable. It will be at full charge again in less than 2 hours! And if you ever need to use your camera for more than its battery life at a concert or party, you can always use it while it is charging.

Memory

Paired up with a MicroSD card, WearWise camera can store up to 128GB of videos and pictures. This way, you will never run out of space again!

We have also included a 16GB SD card with every WearWise camera to make sure that you can get the most out of it right away! 

Multipurpose Back 

Why did we choose a multipurpose back?

We all know that there is no such thing as one size fits all. We are all individual snowflakes with our own unique qualities and needs. And that's why we have designed WearWise to have a easily changeable back that will allow the user to choose what is best for a picture taking moment. All you need to do is unclip the back and put on the desired back!

The magnet, of course, sticks to any ferromagnetic surface! If you are ever somewhere near a metallic object, shoot away!

The Viscose technology is a gel-like surface that will stick to most surfaces, even the uneven ones! All you need to do is put it on the surface and clean it gently after use. How cool is that?

Next, there is the good old suction cup. You should know how to use that, right? Find a smooth surface and voilà.

And there is the clipper. Whether you want to go out for a run or just want to record your day, just clip it onto your front pocket and record your awesomeness!

Lastly, there is the rotatable head the is still under design! It will allow you to take pictures in any angle! It's perfect for filming in some tough angles! We will keep you guys updated when this back is ready!

Sample Pictures

Here are some of the sample pictures that we have taken with WearWise recently! Right now it's only our prototype and we are working our best to improve the photo quality.

We will keep you guys updated as we optimize the camera quality :)

Here's also a cool timelapse created using our app that shows you how you can utilize the versatility of the backs.

App Design 

We are working our best to make our app as clear and easily accessible as possible, but here's a sneak peak of our app. It works on both Android and iOs. 

Reward Package

Each WearWise camera comes in black with 4 attachable backs. We plan on having more colors available to you guys soon and we definitely keep you all posted :)

Timeline

We are still polishing and improving our app and optimizing our camera features, but we plan on finishing up our product and shipping them by November 2015!

Risks and challenges

Nothing is ever perfect and things do go wrong some times but we will always keep our backers on our priority list and ensure every decision that we make is for the best of our backers.

Some obstacles that might arise after the funding are:

• Certification delays: even though we already have certifications from FCC and CE, we might still need more certifications for a broader deployment. These certifications might delay the product delivery but we will do our best in coordinating with the agencies.

• Production delays: We are confident in the production facility to meet our demands, but if there is ever any unexpected event that might delay our production, we will resolve the issue with them immediately and keep the backers updated.
