The Missing Link
Imagine a world where you only have a limited time to setup a presentation. Imagine a world where you don’t have to send your files through the network-of-tubes that is the internet – imagine that you could just “give” the files to others, even if you just met them on the street. Imagine a world where you can do these things when there is no TV, no WiFi or no power outlet. We're here to solve these problems
This is airbridge. It’s a plug-n-play device that allows cordless iOS mirroring. In English, that means that when you snap the airbridge handheld piece to your iPhone or iPad, and plug the base station into a TV or projector – your screen will show exactly what’s happening on your device. No app or setting configuration. No networks. No power needed. No wires keeping you tethered to a screen. That simple. And you don’t even have to be giving a presentation to use airbridge – imagine killing pigs, chopping fruit, racing F1 cars, or creating content in your favorite app – all in Full HD, lossless sound, no lagging and on-the-go.
What if there is no TV or projector, or somebody in your audience wants to view your presentation on their device without having to squint or crane their neck? There’s an app for that. airbridge devices can stream your presentation over WiFi (AirBridge Pro will even make one when there’s none) to other iOS devices, with or without a screen connected. App users can take a snapshot and write out some notes if they want to, and store those snapshots for later review; or even record the presentation to a video file. Pretty handy, huh?
Want to share a worksheet or data file to go along with your presentation? That app we just talked about also does that, without even needing the device. The app will detect who is close by, and you can just drag a file to the face of the person you want to give it to. Or if you want to give it to multiple people, just drag it to the “dropzone.” It's as easy as that. You don’t even have to be connected to the same network to share files.

Just the Facts
If we get funded, and barring a zombie apocalypse, we’ll be offering two editions of airbridge: airbridge Pro, and airbridge Lite for iOS devices. Both editions will be made for people who want things to simply work. airbridge Pro is the complete version of our innovation. It’s made for everyone, including professional users and serious presenters. Airbridge Lite has one feature less (it does not group broadcast) than the Pro and is made for everyday casual users.

The Dream & The Passion
Our dream: We want technology to play effortlessly well with other technology. We want it to act like a silent servant – reliable, durable, and making lives easier, and in a way that's not frustrating, unnecessarily difficult or complicated to use.
Our passion: We want to help our local economy by creating jobs in the US. Airbridge will be produced in the US, and put food on families’ tables. We want to be a pioneer in local economic growth by starting a movement that will help rejuvenate other nations by inspiring other innovators and entrepreneurs to step up and step out and make a like difference in their countries.

We need you
In order to see our dream and passion come into reality we need you. Though we have prototypes built, we want to make the final version sleeker looking and more compact. Additionally, in order to complete the development and make the project production ready, we still need to finish app development, work out fabrication, design circuit boards for the final product, perform final testing, etc. Sounds like a mouth full, but all these things can be done in a matter of 4 months or less. Yet, without financial backing, none of these things can happen.
Like our dream and passion? Awesome. We love you. But we’d love you more if you helped our dream and passion become a reality by sharing this kickstarter campaign with your social network and funding our project. Considering getting an airbridge for yourself? Pick one up now before anybody else.
