Ludek – the project’s creator, CEO of unFake technology and main actor of our movie ;) – a skier, cyclist, and fan of outdoor trips. Experienced with electronics, creating concepts and specifying technical requirements of products.
The idea of how Wraapit primarly was born in the head of Ludek in June 2017!
"While I was doing outdoor sports, or cycling, I always had a problem with switching the music or checking the missed calls. I had to stop and take the phone out of my pockets or take my gloves off when skiing. I always had to pull off my sleeves, my hands were getting terribly cold, and I was wasting time I should be spending on my passion, instead!”
The idea behind Wraapit was embraced with enthusiasm by Karol (in movie wearing yellow jacket ;) ), the project manager with experience in sales and logistics.
The responsibility for hardware and firmware of Wraapitlies with highly experienced staff members of the R&D department of the electronics company, Tom and Bart. The person behind the design is Rafael, who has had rich experience in industrial design. On the other hand, software and the smartphone app is handled by the highly-respected software house Neoteric and UI/UX design EFEKT Agency. Our film productions where made with help of Themontaz.com. HAJDUKSTUDIO is responsible for most of graphics and web creation.
First prototypes were made in 2017 to test the idea of ultra-thin, retractable electric snap wraps and their resistance to bending. The next versions were given new features, such as NFC, microphones, accelerometers, and wireless chargers. The functionality of subsequent components was tested, some of them rather unique in their form. The last version of the prototype, which was created back in October 2018, was given design and software to enhance user experience. All the prototypes, were designed and produced with the top-notch components, components of the company Nordic included.
Our beginnings - the homemade film made using first prototype ;)
The full video of our latest prototype
Wraapit will be produced in a highly-specialized European electronics factory, which produces components and products for the biggest global companies in automotive, consumer electronics, smart home, smart cities, lightning and wearables industries. Because of it, Wraapit products will meet the highest standards of quality and reliability.
Risks and challenges
Every project is carrying the risk, especially when you are doing something new what was not done before. However every risk can be managed and response actions may be planned before the problem will occur. That is what we have done. We did deep SWOT analysis and assumptions and constrains analysis and are prepared for most of risks that may occur. Response plans are already done.
Below we are introducing main risks area and general information how we deal with them
1) Production – many technical projects do not succeed because of wrong project assumptions, underestimated constrains or wrong manufacturer. We have already covered all of those risks, we did deep analysis and worked with manufacturer on prototype stage. Our manufacturer was actively involved in prototyping, what will allow to him to start production just after campaign I s over
2) Software – as in case of hardware we have involved software house already on the stage of prototyping, what makes them familiar with our project and filling responsible for final success
3) Delivery – we have stated delivery in November 2019, what is sufficient for on time delivery.
As we mentioned software and hardware manufacturers are already at place waiting for orders
This is our first Kickstarter Project but we have extensive business experience from different fields.
One more time we would like to thank you for your support.
