Avy runs the latest release of Android (Lollipop) operating system that billions of users are already familiar with. We want to remove any barriers between you and your music. You can set up your favorite apps and services in seconds.

Under the hood, Avy's fine-tuned amplifiers, proprietary sound chamber and waveguide together produce rich, powerful sound in a disproportionately compact package. 

With Avy, you can stream music and videos directly over Wi-Fi, play songs via Bluetooth, or pick up media files stored offline. Avy will go wherever you go and has the endurance to keep up: it weighs just 2.2 pounds and comes with a rechargeable battery that can pump up music continuously for up to 7 hours. 

Sunday with Avy

We want Avy to run the soundtrack for your connected life. But that’s not all it can do. Imagine a beautiful Sunday with Avy:

Over breakfast, Avy and Spotify or your choice of music apps work seamlessly to stream your favorite songs and radio programs. Avy brings you whatever online media you need to stay informed, get motivated, or just kick back.

When you get outside for some exercise, Avy includes up to 32 gigabytes of storage to make sure your songs play loud no matter where you are. And when the kids begin demanding the new Taylor Swift? Easily pair it up with your phone using Bluetooth.

That’s enough sun for one day — why not catching up on the new season of Community? Avy's 7-inch screen is the perfect size to take into the kitchen with you. Or connect to your big TV over HDMI or Chromecast. No matter whether your show lives on Netflix, Hulu or YouTube, it’ll play on Avy.

When it’s time to cook dinner, pull up a recipe on YouTube and let Avy guide you to some new ideas. When you’re done, switch over to Pandora while dinner is served. Avy is like your parents' kitchen TV — only more useful.

Speaking of your parents, you should probably call them tonight. Avy is an easy way to keep in touch with friends and family, using Skype, Google Hangouts, or your favorite calling apps. Kids and grandparents alike can use Avy intuitively, so you can sit back and watch the generations connect. 

When the day is over, put Avy on your nightstand. Choose your favorite alarm clock app in the Google Play store and enjoy a more elegant wake-up call. Avy will fire up right on time to start your tomorrow.  

Those are just the ways we think you might like to use Avy — whether you’re at home or on the go. What Avy can do is up to you. We want Avy to be a versatile companion for your connected life. And we need your help to accomplish it.

Rewards and Specs

To appreciate your generous support and feedbacks, we offer several reward options that come with the Standard (8GB) and/or Pro (32GB) editions of Avy smart speakers - each representing at least $40 of savings over Avy's pre-order price post Kickstarter. You will receive a survey after the campaign to choose the color (black or white).

About Us and the Project

We are Zettaly, a small startup founded by a Googler and a few veterans of the consumer electronics industry. We aim to bring novel, practical, and delightful products to consumers at a fast pace. Our first Kickstarter product, PowerX, was funded in September thanks to hundreds of backers seeking a fast and convenient way of charging their electronics. PowerX backers have received their rewards right on schedule. Read their comments here

Avy is our second project, born from the same philosophy that everyone should be able to enjoy the wonders of technology in their daily life. We have Avy samples running on Android 4.4 KitKat with all essential features (exhibited at CES'15) and are currently porting them to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Pictures and videos posted here were taken of real engineering samples. Final products from production will have a more refined look, e.g. tighter seams around the edges, no defect on the dust covers. We're on track to ship Avy in May and would like to take this opportunity to gather early feedbacks from supporters like you.

We’ve secured production capacity from a large contract manufacture in China (pictured below) - it's a reputable partner that our founders have a long history of doing business with.

With your support, we can deliver Avy in May, 2015. Your pledge will help us achieve the following milestones:

  • February - Completion of production test run
  • March - CE, FCC, Google certified; Android 5.0 porting completion
  • April - Production
  • May - Shipping

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We’re making Avy into a high-quality product. While we’re confident about our schedule and ability to deliver, you should be aware of a few possible speed bumps:

- CE, FCC and Google certifications may take longer than expected;
- Avy’s appearance may be subject to small tweaks as we refine the material and optimize sound and wireless performance;
- The project may also experience delay due to production glitch, parts shortage, or other unforeseeable events.

Rest assured, we are determined to bring Avy to the market and hope you join us on this fun journey.
