What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Cleep is the smart bracelet that enables you to take photo and video from your wrist with an integrated Full-HD camera. It borns to satisfy the need of capture your remarkable moments without taking off your smartphone and hands free. 

Each of us really like to capture our best moments when we are in a new place. With Cleep, you can keep your smartphone in your pocket and simply raise your wrist and tap the button to capture a new photo or video.

How Cleep Works

1) Focus

When something remarkable happen, bring the wrist to the body height (as if you were looking at your watch) and just point the camera in the direction of what you want to capture.

The device automatically recognizes the movement and turns the camera on.

2) Cleep is ready!

3) Tap to record!

Press your bracelet button to start recording:

A soft vibration of the bracelet and a flashing LED light ensure you that Cleep is recording.

1 - One tap to take a fast photo. 

2 - Two tap to start a nine-second video. 

3 - Hold to create a custom video.

4) Tap Again to Save

Tap again or release the bracelet button to stop recording and save your memory.

Once the moment is saved, the LED stops flashing and there's a second, short vibration.

Now you get a new memory! :)

5)  Sync Cleep with your smartphone

To review your moments, you can synchronize Cleep with your smartphone. Thanks to the apposite App you can download all your saved memories on your smartphone using WiFi and Bluetooth.

So now you have all your moments organized on your smartphone:

6) Share on Social Media

Sharing them on your favourite social network is just a tap away:

How is it made?

Cleep is made up of flexible resin, studied to be shock resistant and pleasant to touch.

The bracelet embeds a rechargeable battery, the PCBs with all electronic components and Micro USB for recharge, a Full-HD 140° camera, a vibration motor and a microphone.

The PCBs, electronic components and internal memory are at the bottom. A Micro USB re-charging port is on the right side. The Power and Bluetooth/WiFi buttons are on the left side

The Full HD Camera is aligned with the camera lens escape on the front, near the microphone and the flashing LED. The shooting button is on the upper side of the body.

The magnets at the ends of the bracelet allow perfect grip and adjustable length for any wrist.

 

The App

Cleep works together with the Cleep App to organize all your best memories:

-Extra features

Cleep lets you also track your physical activity and receive notifications from your smartphone.

Note: the app is not yet available on the online store. 

The Bracelet

 

 

Cleep has no screen. In fact thanks to 140° wide angle you don't need a screen to take photos or videos, just point the camera into the direction to capture a particular moment.


Cleep is not only for photos and videos!

In fact thanks to the integrated accelerometer inside you can track your activity during the day. Furthermore using Bluetooth connectivity you can receive smart alert from your smartphone such as incoming call, message or reminder with a soft vibration of the bracelet.

Here you can see all Cleep features:

Hardware & Technical Info

 

Hardware and software video test:

Description: this is a first video test where is possible to understand WiFi feature. In the video you can visualize the camera video streaming and subsequently a video is recorded with the camera and visualized on the smartphone. (note this first camera hasn’t the wide angle lens). This only a part of internal hardware.

8MP Camera test video:

 NOTE: this camera test is only to show the quality of the 8MP camera sensor. We are hardly working to improve video-stabilization in post-processing reduces shaking and balancing.

Video: Codec: H.264, MP4 Audio format: AAC stereo 48KHz

Resolution: 1080p 30fps (Full HD); 720p 30fps

Photo: JPG, 3280 × 2464 pixels

Some photo test (140° wide angle):

 

 

Why 140° wide-angle?

Using 140° wide angle you don't need a screen to watch what you are photographing, in fact once you point the camera you are sure to take all that is in front of camera.
This simple photo test show the difference between normal lens and 140° angle lens.
We take two photo in the same position:

1) The first one is taken with a standard angle lens:
In the same position we take a photo with a 140°angle lens:
 
2) This is a 140° wide angle photo:


Which is the best for you?

People has different wrist so we decided to built two different sizes to cover all user needs:

Note: you can choose it when campaign is ended, before the production will start.

Main Components

Choosing components was not easy. We needed power and compactness at the same time. So we started searching one-by-one before to come up to the final solution:

After many tests on real users we get the best affordability for the ergonomic button. Now it is very intuitive and simple to tap:

Prototype and Design Process

We started building our first prototype using simple hardware platform to understand the technical feasibility of the project.

From here we started searching which was the best hardware and electrical components to come up with the final product.

And obviously sometimes we built them by ourselves! :)

Once understood hardware and technical feasibility, we started the design process:

and started printing some prototype:

Finally the first Cleep was born! 

Now we need your support! ;)

Risks and challenges

During the prototyping phase we came in contact with suppliers to obtain quotes and production time for electronic components.
Most of our components are certified to be sold in most of country in the world, anyway some components requesting more time for production and certification for each country, so maybe timings can change a little bit.
We will start the production of the first prototypes as soon as the goal is exceeded so as to fall in line with delivery.
For others production we are already in contact with several work centers that provide us with a production lot more than the number of pieces for the achievement of the goal.
The challenge of the project is to receive a quantity of orders higher than expected, but we are taking precautions by contacting multiple vendors.
