About

Right now, we are in the 4th Industrial Revolution. Society is changing and expanding in the area of more interactive technology, and training kids on how to use these.

So why shouldn't Education evolve with new interactive tools that develop literacy, competency, and collaboration?

The name “Count” is derived from the Italian word Countach, which is translated as “Wow!” or “Look at that!”. The meaning fits well with our sleek and innovative product.

Count allows students to learn in the format they're comfortable with - kids already use their Smartphones & Computers to learn and communicate. Count is an interactive projector that allows you to physically interact with your apps and media in a way that phones, tablets and computers don't allow. Count has developed several apps to be available at launch, and their open platform allows for new interactive books, apps, games and more!

A dim, fuzzy overhead projection that is too bright in the center and too dim around the edges (as with overhead projectors) is no longer acceptable. The optical focus, linearity, brightness, and clarity of an overhead cannot match that of a video projector - which is why Count was born.

Count is a high-definition projector that tracks interaction in a way that these previous projectors could not.

  • Photograph slides and overhead projectors have now mostly been replaced by projectors that use digital image files, a video projector, or simply large video monitors.
  • Kids use Count to develop literacy, competency, and collaboration skills using the latest technology. 
  • Adults can use Count to project movies, YouTube videos, email, recipes, and more! 
  • Project on any wall or surface - even on the ceiling! 
  • Open platform allowing for new apps and interactive books to be added after launch. 
  • Projector bulb has a lifetime of 20,000 hours - quality & built to last!

Count converts your smartphone into an interactive projector that responds to hand gestures! Here are a few of examples of how you can use Count: 

  • Turn on Count and enjoy truly interactive stories, using hand gestures to activate animations within the story. 
  • Learn to cook your favorite meals - just bring Count to the kitchen to project recipes and cooking videos right on your counter! 
  • Count turns any basic living room into a home-theater for a big screen movie!
  • When your food is ready, use Count to play music from your phone or YouTube video.
  • End the night with an astronomy lesson / video projected in amazing detail on the ceiling.

After your food is prepared and in the oven, simply bring count to the living room and use it as a home-theater videos.

Whether you use "Ok Google" or "Hey Siri" to wake up your personal assistant, Count supports voice commands to help you get more done in less time.

Many different experts came together to create Count, including software, IC and system designers with an average of 17+ years of experience. Willie invented the Count concept; Kenneth designed Count's projection mapping algorithm and desktop control interface; George and Johney bring tier-one operations experience to ensure we deliver a high-quality product. Using our solid engineering background, our vision for Count was to create an educational product that inspires creativity, brings families together, and allows for a healthier lifestyle.

                                         
               

Risks and challenges

The technology behind Count Projector is rock solid and has been exhibited in major trade shows in Taiwan and US. We have strong system design and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) connection. We have secured the capacity of tier-one EMS for Count, but we will do some minor design modifications on both electrical and mechanical fronts in order to lower the height of Count to the desired 63 cm.

We do our best to make sure that all of our products are fully tested so they work right out of the box. In case you receive any defective hardware, please contact us via email and we will be happy to assist you. If Return Authorization is granted, then you will be able to send back the defective item in return for a new one.

Of course, there is the possibility of unforeseeable things happening in the delivery process or if the vendor cannot deliver the ordered parts in time. Creating a new product has factors that are out of our control and introduce some risks of delay, but we will work extremely hard to make sure we bring you a quality product as close to the posted delivery date as possible.

Please note that for backers outside the United States and Taiwan, you may be responsible for customs fees, duties, VAT, import taxes, or other fees administered by your government. These are not included in the cost of shipping or handling your Kickstarter reward, and we are unable to estimate those fees for you.

Our friends and backers understand that we are bringing a truly original and sophisticated product into the market - a process that takes time. We will establish a clear communication channel with the Count community and post updates on new developments and milestones throughout the process.
