About this project
Carrying two phones is not convenient! It is not fashionable or stylish; it costs a lot and is a waste of space.That's why we created PIECE!! PIECE is the future of Dual SIM technology. It is a tiny companion device that holds any GSM, EGSM, DCS, or PCS card, allowing you to add an extra number to your existing smart device via bluetooth. It is designed to fit in your wallet, front pocket, or behind your phone easily. PIECE is so small that it is only the size of a CREDIT CARD! That's why we like to call it, "The Next Small Thing"
The design of PIECE is simple and match your phone nicely.
It designed to be super slim, and easily fit in your wallet.
Long lasting battery which can provide up to 150 hours stand by time, so you only have to charge PIECE once a while.
Insert you working number in PIECE, and start making phone calls and text messages. Enjoy your day with only one phone.
PIECE is compatible with almost all of the IOS device via Bluetooth.
iOS and Android Compatible - With the stretch goal reached! PIECE is now smart device friendly
This credit card-sized Bluetooth device gives your phone a second number
The PIECE is an innovative and multi functional SIM adapter that is the same size as a credit card

香港團隊設計！PIECE SIM 卡轉插器可將 iPad 及 iPod touch 變成智能手機
A special iOS app lets you manage the Piece SIM, turning your iPhone in a dual SIM device.
Now you can have two number active at the same time. Simply put your other number into PIECE and using Bluetooth connect to your phone. Both numbers can now be used on your one and only phone.
Matching your phone in style! We build 2 standard colors for you to match your phone, so you can wear PIECE with style and become a conversation starter with your friends
Not just a SIM card adapter, PIECE is also a security alert for your wallet. If you and PIECE are separated by more than 10m (30feet), both your phone and PIECE will ring to prevent it from being lost or stolen
Can't find your wallet in your room or in a car? No worries, we got you covered! By using the PIECE app you can make PIECE ring. From now on finding your wallet is super simple.
Likewise, by using the function key on the edge of PIECE, you can make your phone ring so it will always be easier to find.
It even works with your iPod Touch
With PIECE, you can even turn your non-cellular smart device into your cell phone. Simply download the PIECE app, now your iPod can be used as a smartphone!
Of course! We have iPad users in mind
If you only want to carry your iPad on the go, before PIECE you would be unable to make phone calls. With PIECE we solve this problem! Download the app and your iPad can also turn into your smartphone!
When we designed PIECE, we only had one thing on our mind - creating the "next small thing" for user experience. We were challenged with designing a double Sim solution for a smart phone while keeping a VERY compact size. The process was amazing and our final product makes us proud! From technologies to research to batteries, designing PIECE has been a journey. We spent months choosing suitable materials for making a thin, lightweight product. With your help, we hope to bring PIECE to life in the very near future.

Risks and challenges
We have worked extremely hard over the last months to deliver a product you will love and we can be proud of. As this is our second time launching a product on Kickstarter, issues should also be minimal.
The Main Challenges Ahead:
Creating PIECE requires engineering a complex system. To make sure we get this right, we have assembled an experienced team of engineers and designers. We have already built two generations of prototypes. Currently, we are producing the first batch to test with users.
Taking prototypes to mass production involves sophisticated logistics and relationships with suppliers. To minimize these risks, we have been negotiating with suppliers (including backup suppliers), testing component quality, and building a team that can execute on our promises. Our plans are nearly in place, and we require the resources to ensure we achieve this.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
