A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
Circle can protect you in effective way 24/7 365 anywhere you go!!
1. The super loud panic alarm to let you get out of troubles.
2. Assign three people to get your emergency texts in every 8 seconds till you turn off the panic button
3. GPS locations show on the texts and open it to view on the map for the quick help
We know emergencies are always terrifying, that's why we create an auto sending feature of the emergency texts in every 8 seconds. You have the total control to turn off the panic alarm when the threat is gone.
Circle tracks your locations in real-time and show on the map, so your friends will know where you are and can take the quick responses. The texts support cross platform on iOS, Android and Windows devices, it gives you a full protection.
You are able to setup 3 people from your contacts or manually input a mobile phone number on the Circle app, the person will get the emergency message when you are in trouble. So those who get your emergency messages can come to help you out.
Circle is designed for daily use, you can hang it up on the bag for work or for jogging. Or using as a keychain would be another good way to carrying with you all the time.
Circle is a 2-way tracker, too. You will never worry about misplace your phone or key and etc. You will be surprised the tracking range is extremely long range, as 3x longer range than any others.
Your safety is important to us, so the emergency alert must be very reliable and be prevented from mis-pressing the button. We took hundreds of times on testing the emergency button to make sure it's easy and comfortable to press down for you. We tested the stability of Bluetooth signal, too. All we want to do is to make sure Circle is the best for your safety and will save you when you need it.
We know you are care about your personal safe and your privacy, too. So, the moment to send out your location and information is only after you press the panic button. We will keep your information private and secure, all the informations will be used only for your emergency request to save your life.
Risks and challenges
Some of the components' lead time may take up to 16 weeks to be delivered which is about 4 months. It may effects the final production deadline, but our solution is to order those from other suppliers who can deliver parts immediately and of course the costs will be higher, but we can take over it to keep our promise.
Another challenge for us is the alarm volume, our goal is to reach 90 dbm, and it is depends on the ID's mechanism, don't worry, we'll do our best to tune it to our goal, and the speaker's side and location may be very from the product images shown on the campaign. We will keep updating it in the near future.
