To spice up this fashionable idea, smart billboards were developed to promote anything instantly using your smart devices. At anytime, you are always just a touch away from displaying smart billboards through any electronic mobile device as a screen saver or for promotional use. These animated graphics can be downloaded on YouTube or accessed through an app. You will discover how beneficial this marketing strategy works in noisy-crowded places (such as trade shows, concerts, sport arenas, etc.) as a powerful way of advertising and showing support for an organization or business. Try testing a few samples to get a better understanding on any mobile device. 

Press play & click on the playlist below within the video to view more smart billboards.

The concept of combining smart billboards & future product designs required more than 3 years of research, analyzing, and testing to develop. Dee3 Smart Cases relied heavily on a universal structure rather than most smart cases of today. In order to offer many styling options & lower tooling cost, each part had to be constructed precisely and interchangeable.

Take a look at the layouts & prototypes. 

Since 2010, every style incorporated into this smart case design brought on new challenges. Most problems were resolved through a trial & error basis which came at a hefty cost. Even though prototype revisions have delayed the production process quite often, setbacks only made these smart cases better and current. Google provided just enough resources in making this creation possible on a very limited budget. As of today, about $12,000 has already been invested into prototypes, 3D drawings, tooling expense, mobile devices, promotional campaigns at local events and trade shows across the country.

Keep in touch throughout the manufacturing process. (See Production Timeline shown below to keep track of the progress being made. Yellow bars indicate parts are pending. Green bars indicate parts are finish & ready to ship.) 

Your generosity has the power of bringing this idea into existence including other universal models. Every detail about these smart cases have a purpose. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE SAMPLES!!!

Pledge any amount to help us exceed beyond the funding goal. In return, you will receive a reward your heart desires.  

Risks and challenges

Throughout this development process, the vision of offering a universal smart case design with many exciting features remains the same. The risks & setbacks involved along the way hasn't been a surprise or change the outcome of completing the tasks.

Previous projects has helped to a certain extent of understanding obstacles will arise and that it's going to require adjustments to get back on course. Regardless of the circumstances, each problem will be addressed and you'll be notified immediately if any unexpected delays occur.

Once the funding goal is reached prepare to receive your request and look forward to more creative ideas in the near future. Let's bring Dee3 Smart Cases & iChains into the marketplace. Please share this campaign with everybody.

Thank you for your support!!!
