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 this project

Everything You Need in a Car Dash Camera

Ever wish you could seamlessly capture -- and review -- what's happening on the road in real-time? Now you can. Meet the VAVA Dash Cam, the most versatile car dash camera yet. Built from the result of hundreds of conversations with REAL drivers, the VAVA Dash Cam was designed for the everyday driver to do and see more on the road – all while providing greater safety and ease of use.

Here's What You Get: 

  • Crystal-clear footage in 1080p HD quality at 60 f/ps
  • Always recording and auto-saves footage of sudden braking and unexpected impact with a built-in G-sensor
  • VAVA Dash Cam mobile app to seamlessly review and transfer footage -- no fumbling with SD cards or cables needed
  • 140-degree field of vision (covers five lanes) 
  • Built-in GPS to log/track trips
  • Snapshot for remote captures 
  • Captures footage even when your car is off -- parking mode that works for 30+ days*

*when used with VAVA's proprietary charger -- the VAVA Dash Cam Charger

 Always Prepared on the Road

From recording accidents to documenting road trips, there are more and more reasons to own a dash camera. With the VAVA Dash Cam, we set out to create a feature-packed solution that covers them all based on feedback from REAL drivers. 

Our goal is to equip drivers with everything needed to stay prepared on the road, whether it’s through proprietary hardware that continues to work while your car is parked, or a mobile app that lets you review and share footage in real-time with just a tap. Always have the documentation you need on hand with the VAVA Dash Cam. 

Crystal-Clear 1080p HD Videos, Day and Night

Not everyone belongs on the road and unfortunately, all it takes is one bad driver to ruin your day. But the next time you get into an accident, there’s a better alternative to playing the blame game: reviewing clear and dependable video footage. With the VAVA Dash Cam, a Sony IMX 291 image sensor is paired with 6 glass lenses and an infrared lens for crystal-clear images, even in low-light settings. The result is highly detailed 1080p full HD videos at 60 frames-per-second both night and day.

A Full-Featured VAVA Dash Cam Mobile App

See and do more with the VAVA Dash Cam mobile app. With a built-in GPS module and a VAVA Dash  Cam app (designed for iOS and Android), the VAVA Dash Cam has plenty for the road trip enthusiast. Review and transfer footage, edit your photos, and share to social networks with ease straight from the VAVA Dash Cam app -- no cords needed. 

Automatic Footage Transfer

Free your footage with the VAVA Dash Cam app, and review and transfer the footage you need in seconds, not hours. When paired with VAVA Dash Cam's dedicated WiFi channel, footage is transferred wirelessly from your TF/microSD card to your phone so you'll always have the videos and images you need on hand.* No computers, manual transfers, or cables needed.

*no data is consumed during this process

Do More With Your Footage

 

Review, edit, and share footage directly on screen. No more scrolling through thumbnails on a computer or having to worry about transferring footage.

Create Your Own Trip Logs

 

Capture and track your trips with VAVA Dash Cam's built-in GPS module. Create and access trip logs with ease, along with footage captured on each route.

Automatic Crash Recording

 

It only takes seconds for an accident to happen and often you won’t even see it coming. But the VAVA Dash will, thanks to a smart 3-axis G-sensor that measures the movement of your vehicle. When any unexpected braking or impact is detected, the Dash will automatically create a video recording that starts from 5 seconds before the incident even occurred.

30 Day Standby When Parked With the VAVA Dash Cam Charger

Sometimes the most dangerous place for your car is when it's parked. Maybe that other driver left a note when he bumped into your car. Maybe there’s security footage available that shows what happened. Or maybe you can find out for sure with the VAVA Dash Cam. Paired with a proprietary 2300mAh power bank, the VAVA Dash Cam can stay in parking mode for over 30 days with G-sensor-activated recordings continuing to take place.

Swivel 360° to Capture Any Angle 

Simplicity meets flexibility with the VAVA Dash Cam -- swivel 360° to capture footage in front, on the side, and even inside the car. 

Wide Angle Lens

Cover up to 5 car lanes with a 140° wide-angle lens and built-in microphone.  It’s easier than ever to capture whatever grabs your attention – including carpool karaoke singing moments.

 

Capture wide-angle snapshots outside -- or inside -- the car with ease

Risks and challenges

Like all Kickstarter projects, we will face certain risks and challenges in delivering this product at the quality we demand of ourselves. However, the VAVA team brings with it decades of experience in engineering and manufacturing at scale, and we've made every effort to mitigate these risks for our backers.

We have already completed our ID design and have a working prototype, and have secured our supply chain in preparation for mass production. Despite our expertise and careful planning, there are risks to this project. We've identified and outlined the following key risks to our project below:

MANUFACTURING

There can always be things that happen on a factory line -- which is why we've made it a key priority to spend time upfront in bringing together experienced project managers to spearhead the process of procurement, testing, and mass production. These managers are based in Shenzhen, side-by-side our factories, which helps ensure speedy communication and minimizing that risk.

SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS

Related to the above, many campaigns experience challenges when scaling from prototyping to production. Since our project managers and engineers are based in Shenzhen, and have prior experience working with our factories, we expect these challenges to be minimal throughout the process. We have already locked down our suppliers, and are working to procure individual components.
