What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

We are proud to present DeLight – The Intelligent Bike Light. DeLight is a smartphone-enabled bike light that will give you the opportunity to find your lost or stolen bike. At the same time it includes many great features that will keep you safe in traffic. DeLight automatically lights up when required, has brake light and temperature read out. DeLight also helps you to remember where you have parked, makes it easier to locate your bike in a crowded parking area and much more – all of which can be controlled by the DeLight by FINDRS app.

Main features of DeLight

Find

Find your lost bike
Find your lost bike

The FIND feature gives you a second chance to find your bike if it is lost, perhaps stolen. It can be reported missing in the app, and the entire FINDRS network will help you search for the missing bike. When it is found, you will get a notification and in the app you can view where it has been spotted by the network. When a bike is reported missing, the DeLight will broadcast a distress signal. This signal will automatically be picked up by other DeLight users in the area. It only requires that these users have the app installed on their phone. The location of the lost bike will automatically be sent back to you. All this happens effortlessly, anonymously and for free.

Breadcrumbs

Remembers where you parked your bike
Remembers where you parked your bike

Each time you park, DeLight will notify your phone to capture its GPS location. As a result you can always check in the app, where you parked your bike. On the map you will be guided back to the location. This feature we call Breadcrumbs.

Flash & Find

Find your flashing bicycle in the crowd
Find your flashing bicycle in the crowd

With the Flash & Find feature, DeLight will light up and flash in the crowded bicycle shelter or the dark basement, making it easier to find. All you need to do is to activate the Flash & Find feature in the app, and when approaching your bike, it will welcome you with flashing lights.

Dusk to Dawn

Automatic light control
Automatic light control

DeLight features automatic light control. It calculates based on your location the time of dusk and dawn. This way it ensures that the lights are on when required for your safety. Delight will switch off automatically when parked, to ensure that the batteries are not drained.

Seen & Safe

Constant light intensity
Constant light intensity

Several DeLight features make it safer to ride your bike. Your bike lights are always turned on when required, and the lights maintain the same light intensity, even when the batteries are running low. The app will prompt you in advance when batteries need to be replaced. It is also possible to monitor your children's bike lights in your app. During winters, it’s always safer to check the temperature before starting the ride on potentially icy roads.

Brake Light

Built-in brake light
Built-in brake light

Brake light is controlled with the built-in motion sensor that can detect any deceleration in the bike. This way you can alert traffic behind you when you brake, similar to the brake light found on cars - a safe feature in an urban environment.

The DeLight by FINDRS App

We have focused on ensuring an easy user-interface and the app has been tested by many users. Their feedback has been recorded and the app has been adjusted accordingly for the perfect experience and intuitive use. We have paid close attention to detail in the design and in all modesty, we think the result is nothing short of amazing!

To make it easy for you to start using DeLight, we have incorporated an animated setup guide that will guide you through the few simple steps of setting up and connecting DeLight with the app. Wirelessly you are able to update the Delight when new features become available.

Back us now! – First shipment in October 2017


 

We have spent the last 4 years conceptualizing, tweaking, adjusting, testing, perfecting, and planning the launch of the smartest bike light in the market – The DeLight. We have done our utmost to ensure a market-ready product and now we are almost there. With this Kickstarter campaign, we seek your support to help us with the last step in this long journey of development. The funding goes toward getting the mass production up and running and to spread the word of DeLight. So please back this project now and be sure to receive your DeLight in time for the long and dark winter.

Thanks for your support.

Risks and challenges

We feel confident in the estimated time of shipment (October 2017) and that all the functionalities are working as intended. Of course, there are always some risks.
We are currently expanding the app-testing to more Android phone models as various phones work in slightly different ways. All iPhone models have been successfully tested.
We are in the final phase of perfecting the FIND feature in providing positioning information – we are well on the way to perfection but it needs further tweaking for accuracy.
Finally, there is the risk of component shortage. We have tried to secure a substantial quantity of the components that goes into DeLight. Part of the funding will be used for purchasing more components for mass production.
