Halo Back: World's First Smart Screen Protector

$251,089

What is Halo Back?

Halo Back is the first smart screen protector in the world. The invisible back button let your iPhone go back easily. With this little magic, you can operate your phone with a single hand.

If you are using iPhone 6 /iPhone 6 Plus, you have probably felt our frustration: cannot reach back button on upper left corner, unable to control with one hand, drop the phone and break heart. Traditional screen protectors “sacrifice” themselves in accident, but you still live in fear and inconvenience.

Besides smart, Halo back is also an excellent glass screen protector just like the good ones you can get from Amazon or other stores. 

  • Extreme clarity  
  • Feel like touching Retina HD Display  
  • Easy application  
  • Protection from scratch to high impact drop
If you are a user of iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, Halo Back works great for you. Take it and make your iPhone perfect! 

We heard from people saying that they love Halo Back and want iPhone 5/5s version.  Now, Available! 

Back it!

We’ll send you a survey after the campaign closes. The survey system will collect your shipping address and your Halo backs' styles: iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 plus. 

How can it be smart without charging?

You are electric

Firstly you need to learn the type of screens that almost all handheld devices now use, which are known as “capacitive touchscreens”. Unlike old “resistive touchscreens” (think sale machines in checkout lines and certain screens in hospitals), capacitive touchscreens require contact with something that can conduct electricity (e.g., your finger) to function. Capacitive touchscreens work like this: humans conduct electricity and touchscreens have an electrical charge. When you touch the screen you distort the screen’s electrostatic field at the point (or points) of contact which triggers the intended action in the device.

We lead current  

For Halo Back, we add a circuit layer to traditional glass screen protector. It helps to lead current when you press lower left corner of the screen, so that the back button works.

Tech Spec  

  • Compatibility: iPhone 6 | iPhone 6 Plus  
  • Crystal Clear: High-grade tempered glass provides ultimate clarity. Its nano coating repels natural skin oils making Glass simple to keep clean and looking great  
  • Height: 130mm | 150mm  
  • Width: 59mm | 69mm  
  • Depth: 0.21mm  
  • Weight: 6g | 8g

Nothing change to original operation. Just one more choice for you.

  Long shot! Apply and Use a Halo Back demo.

The new iPhone with big screen brings an amazing watching experience, but also problems in use. One common embarrassment happens when you wanna go back with a single hand. It's just like... you lack a piece of thumb! The worst is, your heart can be broken when the phone leaves your control and falls down!  So we decide it's time to do something.  

We have tried lots of ways to design the virtual back button and developed four demos before the satisfied version. All we want is to make the best product and let your iPhone work perfect!

Risks and challenges

All hardware products carry associated risks and challenges. Our team has been working hard to address every one of them.

Prototyping was a hard part for a new product. Though problems may come out when trying each detailed modification, we have managed to attain the prototype for CNC processing that almost meets the highest standards after a long time's engineering.

Mass manufacturing might be another challenge because it's not easy to control standard product with unique quality. So we are contacting dozens of mature manufacturers to ensure Halobacks meet high quality standards and be carefully packed for delivery on schedule.

International logistics and customer service are also risks as the team has to communicate with backers at every corner of the world. Fortunately, we have experienced customer support personnel with logistic tracking skills and will work diligently to reply backers promptly.

Our team has successfully operated a hardware project and got plenty of experience in handling all these problems. If any unexpected issue occurs, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to solve the problem quickly.
