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

Actywell’s ONE is the world's first intelligent earphones that brings together music and data that changes the way we will listen to music.

ONE uses machine learning algorithms and one of the world’s largest database of music, thanks to Spotify, to pick and match playlists according to your Bio state.

Much more than just high quality audio
Much more than just high quality audio

ONE is designed to help you through music, to encourage you and to relieve stress.

ONE will now be also compatible for Android as well as iOS devices. When making your pledge let us know which one you would like delivered!

ONE measures your heart rate through it’s hidden sensors that pick up heart rate, cadence, activity and more.

Through these same sensors, ONE measures stress levels. ONE measures your stress levels throughout the day when worn, through the app’s machine learning algorithms, it makes suggestions on when you should take break or meditate and what song’s will best help relieve you of stress.

 ONE’s external DAC and Amplifier gives it unparalleled true digital quality Hi-Fi sound @24 Bit 48Khz with noise isolation.

Much more than just high quality audio... ONE learns your preferences through machine learning algorithms and continuously builds knowledge of your work and exercise routines, to synchronize with your body and allow you to focus on what’s at hand. There’s no better encouragement than music and ONE will listen to your heart and make the best song choices for you. Here's how it works:

ONE’s machine learning algorithms built in the cloud continually measures and learns about your relationship with music and will pick songs accordingly to encourage your activities. ONE works with Spotify in order to pick from the largest song choices available in order to deliver great playlists that match you personally.

BACKSTORY

The story behind ONE came about through experiences and the study of music and how we react to it when listening. As a sports fanatic, I and many others know through first hand experience that music has a very large impact on sports performance, from start to finish. With this, came an idea that joined the founders to ideate a concept that maybe music can be much further reaching and have wider applications than just sports. This is when we started researching the effects of music in a wider context.

With the help of a few universities we were able to run tests to show that certain types of songs had a positive effects on stress and an on emotion. These results were great! We were hi-fiving, happy that the tests showed really positive results. However, getting those benefits in the hands of consumers was a long way away at that point...

So, to recreate the lab tests in a pair of hearables, we started to work on prototypes testing heart rate and somehow getting the hardware to be able to work hand in hand with music. The challenges were great, but with a crack team, we eventually worked out all the finer details to deliver working prototypes.

Our design journey! It’s been a long journey and we hope you’ll love the end result! We’ll be posting updates so keep checking in!

DESIGN

ONE features beautifully engineered materials to create its metallic finish and high quality aesthetic retro look. Its body is made of aluminum zinc alloys which comes in a variety of colors. In order to get the finish we desired, the metals are injected into an extremely high temperature, high pressure molds to provide the highest quality polished look and feel. We are happy to announce we recently got the German design award! Thank you to our designer!

ONE comes with replaceable leather skins to accessorize and personalize, and for Kickstarter, personalization takes a step further as the skin will be lazer etched for each backer opting for the bespoke reward and they can provide their own logos to be etched!! 

Our product is designed and is well on its way to completion, here's how it gets put together:

Risks and challenges

We have come a long way in our project and we have even started on basic molds, but there is still a way to go. What we really need is your help! A big part of our product is the app and the learning features and for this we would like your help to experience music in a new way enable us to continuously improve our machine learning architecture, and this is why we are launching with the Kickstarter community.

We are already starting to work with manufacturers, however as with all projects, an issue during production is something that anyone could have arise. Given how far along we are in the development and manufacturing process this is extremely unlikely, but given our expertise, experience, and our transparency with you, any potential issues in this area should be overcome quickly.

We have been working for the past 12 months on developing a product that we are proud to share with the world and we can't wait to share it with you.
If we encounter unforeseen problems through third parties, it may be possible that our intended delivery date will be postponed, but should this happen we will notify all backers immediately. We have been backers ourselves at one point, so we know to be upfront with you!
