BomShot™ is a tool for anyone creating visual content from their phones. The key to taking a great photo or video comes down to lighting. With BomShot™ you can diffuse or even out light to enhance and reduce shadows. Use BomShot™ to create higher quality selfies, use as a softbox, or as accent lighting. With 7 different LED colors and 3 light intensities to choose from, BomShot™ offers limitless possibilities for content & ambience creation.     

As we all know, lighting is a crucial element to taking quality photos. The more control you have over the lighting situation, the more control you have over the quality of the photos. Shooting indoors or at night can be challenging due to the variety and placement of light sources that you may encounter. BomShot™ helps you create limitless unique photos and videos with ease in all those tricky environments. BomShot™ can also turn a dark room into an instant dance party with 2 sound activated strobe lights!    


To really get the word out about BomShot™ we need to increase its exposure. All support will go towards marketing and content creation so we can present BomShot™ to the world in the way it should be.  Your support will not only get you a super cool product but also will help spread the word about the product and what it can do for the world of mobile photography and unique content creation.

 The idea for BomShot™ really started in November 2018 after a meeting we had with a supplier who develops high end lense kits for mobile phones. We were discussing new ideas for improving the world renowned selfie and BomShot™ was born. 

Very quickly we were able to obtain funding for the mold and initial prototypes which we developed in house. By December we trademarked the name and moved directly to developing the prototype. We also secured our partner who is manufacturing BomShot™ . This partner is a company who we have worked with for over 8 years and have great trust in, having worked with them on on much more complex projects with great satisfaction. In January we started our first batch of BomShot™ prototypes after finalizing the design. 

We plan to ship BomShot™ by the end of March 2019 and are firmly committed to that goal.

All funding will go towards spreading the word about BomShot™. We understand that not everyone has the ability to contribute but you can share a link, right?

Risks and challenges

The team at Emperor Promos, Inc. have almost a decade of experience developing products in Shenzhen, China. There are always challenges involved with every new product development, but we believe that with our having experienced many of these challenges we'll be able to navigate efficiently past any obstacle. One of the biggest challenges that many teams face when dealing with product development in China is the language barrier. Our entire team, made up of Americans and locals, speak the language. This is paramount to our success and things that take others weeks to figure out we're able to smooth over within a matter of hours. Our methods have been tested through failure and we're very excited to get this project off the ground and most important the product into your hands. We want to be transparent with all our backers so if you have any questions at any time please make them known to us and we'll do our best to exceed your satisfaction.
