Eggie is an elegant, decorative, and personalizable light. With its waterproof exterior, wireless charging capabilities, and light-sensitive functionality, Eggie can light up your world where ever you go.

From the beginning, we wanted to create a light that is both beautiful and versatile. We are proud to present Eggie - the marriage of art and engineering. Its glow will warm any room and its presence will light up any occasion.

With a battery life of over 7 hours, Eggie is perfect for one night’s sleep. Its wireless charging function allows you to easily plop it on or off to charge.

Eggie is designed to be sustainable. It only consumes 2.5 Watt and it will stop charging once it is fully charged. You may also switch Eggie off by shaking it twice, and simply repeat to turn it back on.

Its water resistance function allows Eggie to float on water, opening up a multitude of different uses. An engagement proposal, perhaps? To light up a date? What about a blissfully lit aromatherapy bubble bath? Your creativity has no limits.

The texture of Eggie's shell also makes the perfect canvas for artists, couples, friends, and children to express themselves. With a marker, Eggie can be the platform of your next dream.

A Letter from the Creators:

In Eggie, we strive for a beautiful and elegant product that can suit any occasion. We believe we are on the right track. However, we are calling on the support of the Kickstarter community to help with final production and manufacturing costs. If everything goes according to plan, we hope to get this light of your life into your hands and homes by June. 

In 2016, our team entered the Pacific Venture Capital Conference and Competition (PVCC), a platform where university and graduate school students showcase their entrepreneurial ideas and financial valuations to an audience of industry leaders and seasoned venture capitalists. Of the over 50 international teams which took part, we have reached the final round with only three teams remaining. The final round will take place on February 24th in Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, and we will be sure to keep you posted on our progress!

Eggie - See you tonight.

Risks and challenges

We have tested the product at the prototype level but need further time with large scale manufacturing and production logistics. That being said, we have a good relationship with our suppliers and ensure that all the components that go into making Eggie are of great quality and safety.

While Eggie is marketed as being waterproof, Eggie’s purpose in water should only be decorative. Careless handling of Eggie in water may compromise its outer exterior, subjecting it to a loss of functionality. A detailed user's guide will be included in Eggie’s packaging. We are currently in the process of patenting Eggie in Canada. Following this, we will be seeking energy efficiency and sustainability certification.

MANUFACTURING COSTS:

Eggie Light Molding - $8,500 CAD
Eggie Wireless Charger Molding - $6,500 CAD
Eggie Packaging - $3,000 CAD
FCC/ CE Testing - $2,000 CAD
Min Order Required - $8,000 CAD
