About this project

Always have your hand sanitizer, favorite fragrance and much more connected to your phone with Atomyzer!

Working Prototype

We carry our smartphones with us everywhere we go. However, we do not have the same convenience with either our favorite fragrance hand sanitizer, pepper spray or breath mint.

While they might come in small travel sized bottles, we either forget to carry the travel size solution or simply loose them. So much for being handy!

With your Atomyzer case, if you have your phone on you, you will always have your hand sanitizer, fragrance, pepper spray and breath mint on you. 

Our primary goal with Atomyzer is for people to be always handy with their most needed things to keep them safe,secure and fresh. 

Atomyzer is a uniquely designed product that serves both functionality and design. While currently limited to fragrances, hand sanitizers and a water fight (if you will!) there are endless possibilities for its use cases.

We are developing other cartridges that could hold pepper spray and Asthma spray medicine  … the possibilities are endless.

Color Options:

While we'd love to give you as many color options as possible, for now we have decided to limit it to the following. If you have suggestions or ideas for color scheme please write us to at rahul(at)atomyzer.com

Feature 1 - Cartridge:

The Cartridge is fitted with our unique adapter that lets users easily fill and refill the cartridge with their favorite fragrance or hand sanitizer. The cartridge fills within seconds and stores up to 60 Sprays, keeping you fresh and safe all day long.

The cartridge is made of tough plastic and is ultrasonically welded making it leak proof.

Feature 2 - Locking Mechanism:

Butt Dial? Accidental Butt Sprays? We’ve got you.

To avoid an accidental spray we have integrated a lock in the spray head. To lock simply twist clockwise to unlock simply twist anti-clockwise.

Feature 3 - Style :

Let’s face it... functional case designs can be boring. To up the ante we created Atomyzer's accent snap is not only stylish but also exchangeable.  Pick your design and you’re all set to go with your favorite fragrance always with you.

Background 

Necessity is the mother of all innovation. My story is no different. I spent a small fortune on giving up my colognes at TSA checkpoints and another small fortune losing all the small hand sanitizer bottles that were meant to be … handy.

Next step: Google. Of course, there were a lot of handy little solutions. However, the issue with these handy solutions is, you have to remember to keep them handy. Yet another thing to remember.

Honestly, the only thing that is handy these days is our phone. Ta daaa! That’s where the idea was born. What if there was a case that safely let you carry either a fragrance (if you like to always smell fresh) or your hand sanitizer (If you always want to keep those germs at bay)

I put my engineering knowledge to work and started designing. One thing led to another and today here we are. 

Initial Sketches 

Where we are 

What started as an idea, took over 100 iterations to come to life. We struggled with making it ergonomically, secure and sexy.

We tested numerous prototypes and considered various manufacturing processes to get a robust leak proof case that sprays liquid. 

Through trial and error we figured out the best combination of functionality as well as manufacturing process and partners.

We now need your support to help us scale the idea. The fund will be used to make full production injection molds that are capable of making a quality and consistent product.

Timeline

Future

Atomyzer is a uniquely designed product that serves both functionality and design. While currently limited to fragrances, hand sanitizers and a water fight (if you will!) there are endless possibilities for its use cases. The cartridges could hold mouth freshener, pepper spray or Asthma spray medicine  … the possibilities are endless.

We’re not just limiting ourselves to the spray though. Don’t feel like taking your fragrance out with you on a night out, but can’t leave without your make-up. What if the Atomyzer back plate was replaceable with a sleek make-up kit, the possibilities are endless and we’re ready and motivated. 

Thank You

We're extremely excited about Atomyzer and hope to make it available across all phone types. While we work hard towards our dream if you have any questions, suggestions or feedback please reach out to me at rahul(at)atomyzer.com

Questions that we were asked

Does it spray pepper spray?
Currently the cartridge allows to refill and fill hand sanitizer, breath mint and fragrance. However we are designing the cartridge which will contain Pepper Spray. You can easily replace the cartridge of your choice to use anything you want.

Why is it so bulky?
Atomyzer's size mainly dictates by the cartridge which holds the liquid. The important element in the cartridge which helps it to spray is a of the shelf product. However we have chosen the smallest size, it still adds up to the overall size of Atomyzer. 

After assembling Atomyzer's size is still comparable with other multi-functional iPhone cases out there in the market.

$3000 doesn't seem to be a lot to kickstart this project?
We put in a lot of our own money and debt to get the project running and to turn the idea into product. Personally, I have quit my job, and used my savings to fund this project up to this stage. But there is still a small gap that we have to fill in before we ship the product.

Most importantly, we do understand that Kickstarter is not a store; and we only expect to raise enough money to move into the next step of production.

Why these colors?
Since the production volume is relatively small, we have to limit the number of options to make sure we have a consistent and a quality product. I hope you like the colors we choose.  Before the end of the campaign we will take surveys on what additional colors we want to add up for your selection.

Risks and challenges

We feel the biggest risk involved in this project is production delays. We’re pretty sure everything will be on time, but we realize there are risks and challenges with everything that requires creating injection molds and manufacturing.

We have reduced a lot of the risk associated with this project by successfully producing multiple prototypes with a reputable manufacturer. However, we will promptly inform all supporters should there be any issues or delays.
