Vufine: a Handsfree Wearable Display

$241,111

With Vufine, we wanted to do something as simple as possible. People carry around so much technology every day and it’s only getting more powerful. However, as useful as technology can be, there will always be a need to interface with information while your hands do the real work. We believe your technology is smart enough, you just need new ways to experience it.

Our team has a wealth of experience in the wearable industry and know that smart glass technology has been hindered by privacy concerns and affordability. Vufine is a wearable display, not a computer, so there is no camera, no operating system and no confusing user interfaces to learn. Because the focus is on the display, the resolution is superior to similar devices like Google Glass or Recon Jet. Boasting a high-definition display, the picture quality is crisp enough to read text and enjoy videos. Vufine allows you to experience real-life picture-in-picture with your favorite applications!

Vufine can connect to anything capable of outputting a 720p HDMI signal using a special, thin HDMI cable so you can plug in and go without worrying about latency issues or a rapidly draining battery. It attaches to a wide variety of user glasses with a magnetic docking station for added adjustability and stability. Plus, it makes it incredibly simple to put on and take off so that you can easily pocket it when not in use.

Vufine facilitates your favorite activities as an extension of your technology, not some overreaching replacement. So free up your hands and take full advantage of the technology you already own — plug in and get out there!

Since Vufine is simply a wearable display, it’s extremely easy for you to integrate it into your day-to-day activities, rather than having to go out of your way to search for potential uses.

Vufine is especially useful for data that you need but don’t have to interact with. For consumers, this can vary from a camera viewfinder to a display of fitness metrics. For business applications, this can vary from an engineer in need of looking at a schematic while keeping their hands free to a security guard who needs to monitor multiple cameras while making their rounds.

Vufine is simply an extension of all the technology you already own- the possibilities are truly endless.

Vufine comes with a special thin HDMI cable with a micro HDMI connector that plugs directly into Vufine and a full size HDMI connector to plug into what ever device you want to interface with. As there are so many different ports for the vast array of technology out there today, we wanted to chose the simplest, sleekest cable we could. 

However, because there are so many different ports, some of which are proprietary, any device without a full-size HDMI port will require an adaptor or separate cable to connect to Vufine. If you are not sure about whether your device can connect to Vufine or not, please contact us at info@vufine.com.

    

Risks and challenges

We have worked tirelessly to insure that Vufine is exactly the product we want to make. Fortunately we have been able to get the product the majority of the way towards completion and now only need to finalize the device allowing us to avoid any potential design and development hurdles.

It was important to us that we come to Kickstarter with more than just an idea, that we could meet our backers more than halfway and show them something new that only needed their support to become fully realized.

As with any startup looking to move into production there are a plethora of issues and potential challenges involved in expanding to meet demands. Unlike the early days of startup life where the focus is laser trained on the product, production involves an entirely different set of skills and knowledge. Fortunately we have partnered with a local EMS company that doubles as a manufacturer and is able to provide critical knowledge and assistance in our transition.

We are a small team looking to expand and we’ve already come a very long way in a short time so, though there are always unforeseen circumstances, we are absolutely confident in our ability to meet and overcome them to insure that we are able to deliver a great product to our backers!
