About this project
YUN is the world's first levitating incense holder and mindfulness device, combining high electromagnetic technology with traditional benefits of incense.
Bringing aroma into your life and serenity to minds, it's an innovative design made to better improve your lifestyle and gives you visual, sensory and spiritual enjoyment.
"Technology also has the right to be only beautiful, provided it is clear to everyone." Translated by Google.
YUN delivers its effects through all the senses in a way that celebrates concentration, mindfulness and even can deepen and enhance meditation.
- As you adjust the pod and find the balance point in the mid-air, you will give yourself time to calm down and concentrate.
- When the pod and the incense are being 'set', YUN helps you focus and concentrate in a mindful way.
- The dreamy smoke cloud also helps you relieve from stress and stay focused on the present moment.
- Appreciate the aroma of incense ingredients such as agarwood and sandalwood, which provide calming and soothing effects.
- You can also take YUN as a novel decorative object for your home and office : )).
Combining both physical and spiritual experiences, YUN provides you an extraordinary way to enjoy the beauty of incense and to find true rest within a busy lifestyle.
YUN is consisted of two parts, the base and the pod. Electromagnetic suspension technology is the key to levitation.
But only if you focus your mind that you can locate the perfect balance point between the pod and the base, making the pod float in the mid-air steadily.
Patience is important when you try to lock the pod in place, otherwise it will keep falling off.
In a way, YUN reflects your emotional state.
Open the pod and put a burning backflow incense cone inside. A wisp of fragrant smoke will flow out from the bottom of the pod.
As you gaze at the ever-changing smoke cloud and the rotating pod, you'll find yourself in a state of mindfulness.
Here is a more detailed instruction of how to use YUN:
YUN is designed with maximum simplicity and drew inspiration from Eastern cultures.
The white pod and the black base represent the Heaven and the Earth. The arising smoke resembles the drifting clouds and flowing water as seen in traditional Chinese paintings. The unity of motion and stillness is in concord with the concept of Tai Chi theory.
So far, whoever has used YUN has found it delightful and useful.
NISHIGIWA JOEYO, a Japanese Kōdō master from the Senzan-Goryu School, loves YUN and gave a lot of advice to James as to how to improve this product.
 Senzan-Goryu School is an incense ceremony that serves Sennyū-ji imperial Temple in Kyoto.
Plus, psychotherapists found YUN able to calm patient's mood, and Zen masters used it to guide beginners of Zen practice for mindfulness.
That's why we want more and more people to know it and experience it.
We are now in the last stage and YUN is ready for the first manufacture. A high-quality working prototype was made. After months of designing, iterations and testing, our team has finalized the product. But to make the manufacture process a reality, we need your help to back our project. We want to bring YUN to the world, and we believe in the collective power of people from all over the world. That's why we turn to Kickstarter and you : ).
Risks and challenges
Our team has been working on YUN for more than 9 months now, and has found reliable manufacturers and materials. Once the minimum viable production target is met, YUN can be put into production as soon as possible. But, as this is our first run of the product, unforeseen delays can happen. We'll do our best to minimize any risk of delay and to ensure YUN's successful production, and bring YUN to your doorsteps on time as promised.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
