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.
JEDEYE is a stylish stereoscopic camera designed for both personal and business users who are serious about stereoscopic photography and image quality. You can get quite good quality with the camera even under a challenging low light environment. By using the accompanied app, You can easily share the videos with your family and friends. When viewed through VR headset (with smartphone) or 3D TV, these 3D videos show a strong stereoscopic effect. With a built-in 2000mAh lithium battery, JEDEYE can easily support up to 2 hours continuous recording. It's also very cute, and can be easily put into your pocket.
With our first demo prototype in May, several rounds of ID rework, we are almost there. We started shipping limited number of near-production JEDEYE to early customers and Stanford University even picked the developer's version of JEDEYE for its graduate level image system engineering class.After almost one year of hard work, we are ready to spread the fun of stereo photography. Are you ready?
1) Designed by a veteran imaging team from strong ties to Stanford University
2) The combination of surveillance-grade image sensors and advanced algorithms allows you to record fun events even under challenging low light situations
3) Record 3x FHD and HDR 3D video
4) Fast motion mode at 3040*1520@60fps
See a comparison video here:
Sample Video -- Puppy
Sample Video -- Dancing
JEDEYE’s sports mode allows you to record 3D video at 60 FPS (frames per second)
Some Samples -- Baby
With surveillance-grade image sensors and advanced algorithms, you won’t miss the fun in low light situations.
Low Light Comparison
For scenes with very uneven light, JEDEYS’s WDR mode will do the job for you.
The JEDEYE camera can be used to record video or capture image alone.
Also, the JEDEYE camera can be used with the provided smartphone APP, Jedeye Player. And the APP gives you full access to JEDEYE camera. You can configure the camera, live-preview, record and share captured 3D videos with family and friends through 3D-capable social networks.
Once video get recorded, user can insert the smartphone into a VR glasses to enjoy the recorded video with our JEDEYE player.
The APP gives you full access to JEDEYE camera. And you can configure the camera, live-preview, record and share captured 3D videos with family and friends through 3D-capable social networks.
You can enjoy 3D videos with VR headset or 3D-ready TV.
The quality of the 3D video is amzing, just put on a VR glass!
JEDEYE is the followup version of our commercial stereo camera (code name POTOO) release in 2016 for live-streaming applications. While commercial users found POTOO fun to use, it was bulky and could only work along with computers.
In order to spread the fun, we decided to start the consumer version stereo camera project (code name JEDEYE) in Jan 2017, a major overhaul of the original POTOO project with better image quality, lighter/stylish design, built-in battery, smartphone APPs, you name it. It was never an easy task going from commercial to consumer and fortunately our team stood up to all the challenges.
Risks and challenges
In 2016, we released the commercial stereo camera for live-streaming applications (code name POTOO) after five months of development. JEDEYE is the followup version of POTOO aiming for both consumer and business users. We started JEDEYE project in Jan 2017 and had the working prototype ready before May 2017.
While the path from commercial product to consumer product was bumpier than we thought, we managed to solve most of the challenges:
1. The switch from TI chipset to HiSilicon chipset
2. The addition of Wifi and bluetooth
3. The addition of built-in battery
4. The rework of ID design to make it smaller and lighter
5. Android and iOS app
6. Heat dissipation issues.
While we are still polishing both software/hardware for final production release and ramp-up, we feel pretty confident that we can meet or deliver ahead of the timeline.
