Who is behind Rapp It Up?

Rapp It Up concept was born late in 2012. The problem that I was concerned with was that I knew that my wireless carrier was using my life’s information (my data) to make money and that didn’t sit well with me. I pay a large amount of cash to this mutli-national giant and they are making money on the side by selling my information to anyone. I decided right then that that situation was extremely distasteful to me and that I had to do something about it. 

The manufacturing plan started and the design process began by developing a clear plan. The plan would have to be straightforward and economical with a set goal in mind. After the engineering processes where set in motion drawings where developed.

I have 15 years experience designing components and systems in 9 fields of engineering. I’m not the ground level engineer that designs the “Widget” from scratch. I’m the senior engineer that global technology companies call when they need multi-million dollars systems to work.

I looked for materials that would in theory work either by themselves or in layers. The material requirements where that they must block all spectrums of wireless communications used in all cell phones and wireless devices. They must be pliable and not require factory machine processes to assemble. They must be durable and easy to clean and they must not cost an arm and a leg.

I spent 4 months purchasing and testing various fabrics. After dozens of failures and trials I was successful. I found the combination of fabrics that met all the requirements. Eureka!

I took my hand made prototypes to several manufactures that didn’t think the project was worth their time. Fortunately, we found one here in Phoenix, AZ. They turned out 60 or so of a production prototype run. With our first run we achieve 100% signal blocking capability. Eureka!

Along the way we met several other small business firms. We developed close working relationships with the material suppliers and the prototype manufacturer. I personally secured 2 alternatives for each and have agreements in place to start production immediately after funding is received. Shipping and receiving will be handled internally at our production facility. We have reviewed 3 alternatives for a small testing and shipping facility and are prepared to move in immediately when funded.

I have over 15 years in production and manufacturing. I have lead projects setting up work stations from electronics testing to 5 foot wide ultrasonic flow meters. I have been lean manufacturing trained and practiced so much my middle name should be Six Sigma. Lastly, I am driven to deliver the highest quality for the world’s first real alternative to being spied on and used like a cheap mule by the corporate giants and governments that wish to know me through my cell phone better that I know myself.

I developed friendly working relationship with each piece of the Rapp It Up project. I treat these people with respect and we trust each other to continue to deliver the best products possible. Everyone involved in this project agrees that this is the right time for this product and they support it 100%.

Rapp It Up is a sole proprietorship with that is singularly focused on providing a low cost and easy to use personal wireless device protective device. We have all the pieces in place to ensure that the Rapp It Up product line is ready to go into full production as soon as we’re funded. Supply chains, manufacturing, and testing have all been put into place. Local small business owners are standing by to help provide a new level of protection for wireless device owners. All of our agreements are in place and we look forward to lasting relationships with them.

We are still developing our logo and catch phrase.

What is a Rapp It Up?

The product is a semi-fabric wireless network RF/EMI shielding pocket/sleeve for cell phones, wireless tablets, computers and wireless technology microchip embedded credit cards. The pocket/sleeve provides security in the form of denying manually or automatically communications by the device such as location and location history, web page history and stored data. The device user places their cell phones, wireless tablets, computers and wireless technology microchip embedded credit cards inside the pocket/sleeve and it protects the enclosed device from any RF or wireless access of that device. This security provides the device user with peace of mind knowing that their secure information stored on the device cannot be accessed for any reason especially those that the device owner is aware of.

Where we’re at?

We have been developing Rapp It Up for a little more than 7 months. We are forming a great team of material suppliers, manufacturers, graphic artists and collaborators. The security sleeves you see are production prototype first articles. We’re about 80% of the way to having the cell phone engineering, design and development complete.

Currently, we need to develop the tablet laptop and hand held game console models. The cell phone Rapp It Up “Stealth Model” functions so well (Tested @ 100% wireless signal blocking) we are planning on modeling all of the larger models in a nearly identical design specs.              

The closing mechanism (Spring Frame) used in the cell phone model is tried and true. Spring frames were what was used on change purses for decades. We are developing new designs to use a similar product to use on the computer sized units.

Currently the there is only one color available. We are working with the supplier to offer additional colors like Silver, Charcoal Black and perhaps a Dark Hunter Green or Teal and Cobalt Blue. Each would have that beautiful sheen you see on our golden bronze colored cell phone model.

Radio commercial ads were run on 101.1 THE BEAT in the Phoenix Arizona urban radio market to develop name recognition. Our website launched on February 14, 2013. It is extremely rough and we’re continuing to develop. We are going to be conducting a radio interview at the end of May on KFNX Independent Talk 1100 AM. Stay tuned we’ll provide the details as they become available.

Risks and challenges

Creators Bio:

Daniel K. Hilburn Sr. is the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Engineer for the Rapp It Up Wireless Security Company. He founded the company on January 14, 2013 on the same date he filed the patent with the United State Patent Office.

Daniel served in the United States Navy as a SONAR Technician from 1987 to 1994. He excelled in the field of acoustic analysis and digital electronics. As a SONAR technician your main focus is underwater tracking, classification and engagement of ships at sea. He worked his way through the US military service increasing his skill set in Anti Submarine Warfare by attended beginning, intermediate and then advanced acoustic analysis schools. Ultimately, he was classified as what is known as a quad 0 (0000). This was the top tier of acoustic analysis designation for the United States Military.

After his military service Daniel worked as an FAA certified instrument technician. He also worked for 2 years as a field engineer installing remote control (RF) systems for locomotives, heavy equipment and industrial overhead cranes.

Daniel worked as an engineer with a global leader in the manufacture and development of ultrasonic flow meters that monitor the flow of cooling water into and out of nuclear power plants around the world. Daniel’s work was instrumental in developing the world’s first industry certified standard for ultrasonic flow meters for custody transfer (Petroleum products).

During those years he trained and perfected Six Sigma, Lean manufacturing and Quality engineering techniques that are applied on this project.

Utilizing this diverse technical background Daniel developed the concept of the Rapp It Up in late 2012.

Research and development progressed quickly due to the refined processes used in producing a working model of the security sleeve in less than 4 months. Working alone Daniel was able to create a functional model to take to a potential manufacturer. In early January 2013 the final drawing and specifications for the Rapp It Up product line was completed. On February 14, 2013 the Rappitup.net website launched.

Our risks and challenges are the same as many other small technology projects except for one thing. Our CEO is also our Chief Engineer. He has more than 15+ years in production and manufacturing. His expertise is in line with all that the Rapp It Up Wireless Security Company needs to carry out this project once funded through to completion and beyond. Each supply, production, test and distribution points is solid and has 2 alternatives so each facet has 2 back ups.
