About

Noteu is your smart companion that acts as an extension to your mobile, allowing you to customise online interactions with the people and information you care about. Noteu's Bluetooth speakers allow you to have a much richer audio experience whist making your interactions with notifications online more natural and personal, saving you time and frustration.

Your Music

Noteu easily connects to your Android or Apple device through Bluetooth and allows you to play audio or music through any app available to you such as YouTube. You can even control your volume and tracks via Noteu's display.

Social, Workplace and Online Content

This is what Noteu can currently display however we plan to connect to a wider range of your favorite online networks as we evolve. Noteu works in the cloud so more content can be added even after you have one! Noteu can connect to a wide range of online services and content with the integration of IFTTT support.

IFTTT allows you to automate your online networks together making everything a seamless experience: https://ifttt.com

Pin Meaningful Content

Keep on top of notifications in your line of sight by acknowledging or acting on them, saving time and the frustration of constantly checking your phone. Noteu lets you pin meaningful notifications so you can visit them at a later date from your home screen. Noteu enables a satisfying experience to organising important online content in a more productive way.

Android and iOS Mobile App  

Noteu uses a clean and simple mobile app to connect Noteu to your Wi-Fi at home or work. Set up your various social media accounts and customise how Noteu displays your notifications. Filter your notifications by enabling sound alerts and change how frequently Noteu checks for updates so you don’t become overloaded with too much information. As we evolve we want to advance into new content you can connect with online.

Your own NFC Tag

Noteu comes equipped with a NFC Tag so you can store information, automate and control tasks on your phone using NFC functionality found in Apps like Trigger and Tasker. 

Simply tap your phone on the back of Noteu to reach your NFC tag!

If you're unfamiliar with NFC watch this enjoyable and concise video about NFC tags to automate your phone using Apps Trigger and Tasker, https://youtu.be/0mDmjm0n0Do

Design

Noteu was designed to capture the feeling of opening up a new gadget knowing the experience has to be exciting and unforgettable. It's designed to work straight out the box, seamlessly integrating with your regular habits throughout the day.

When you receive your Noteu you'll also get a micro USB cable and plug which can be used to power your Noteu at home and work. 

Personalized Name Engraving

Noteu is available in white, red and blue. During manufacturing you will be asked to choose your colour. At an extra cost you can have your own personalized text engraved onto your Noteu. All non personalised versions have "Noteu" engraved on the back.

Noteu's Cloud

Noteu connects to its online cloud where all the magic happens. Once Noteu connects to the cloud it checks and retrieves alerts and information that matters to you. Noteu takes advantage of oAuth security which establishes a partnership between Noteu and your online accounts (e.g. Facebook) so no personal information or passwords are known or stored. We take pride in online security and protecting your personal information.

Developer Tools

We want Noteu to be accessible to everyone and everything. Noteu comes with a RESTful web API and rich developer documentation to allow you to display your own notifications and content within any programming language which has access to the internet. We can't wait to see how you will innovate and develop exciting new uses for Noteu.

Manufacturing

We have a high quality 3D printer for personalized orders of Noteu however for larger quantities we will produce a mould so we can manufacture thousands with ease. We have maintained connections with PCB and electronic manufacturers to source Noteu's components. We have the labour force to manage and deliver any large orders of Noteu.

 Hardware

We have spent a long time making sure Noteu’s hardware is suitable for manufacturing to scale. Noteu is comprised of:

- Case : 3D printed PLA

- Wi-Fi : 802.11 b / g / n

- Display : 2.8"  LCD Display With Capacitive Touch

- CPU (the brains) : Atmel AVR

- Sound : Two 3W 4 Ohms Speakers

- Power : Micro USB, you can use USB Plug given or PC

- Mobile App : Android or Apple

Current Progress

We have made rapid progress and with your support we can build Noteu's iOS App, finalize software and finally manufacture at scale to reduce production costs to an affordable price for you. 

We will then rigorously test and ship Noteu to all backers. We will have a workable product that can be purchased and marketed online to create an environment which will ultimately lead to future improvements and iterations of Noteu. We will buy additional tooling to cope with any high increase in demand.

My Story

Since I was very young, I have loved to invent by building hardware and software projects. Recently, I've become interested in innovating with technology in the home and businesses of the future.

I started my journey creating simple electronics, building my knowledge over time and then launching multiple Android games and tools to Google Play. I developed, launched and maintained a fully fledged social network with over 20,000 members. I embarked on Noteu's journey, last year, where I developed many prototypes and launched an initial prototype which was successfully funded. I manufactured and shipped units around the world whilst learning about business, hardware, manufacturing and logistics. The addition of a full colour LCD, Bluetooth Speakers, touch screen and modern design means Noteu has whole new feel and direction.

Linku, predecessor to Noteu

I've gained such a diverse and broad set of skills around Web 2.0 which I want to apply with a team of people around me. I'm very passionate about Noteu and building something we can use to empower lives.

Transparency

I believe in transparency and treat every backer as a partner. I believe I can learn the most from you by taking on board your feedback allowing us to develop Noteu's vision faster and ultimately make your experience much better with Noteu.

Your share makes a difference

I'm amazed that people underestimate the power of sharing and how a great deal of small hammering can make an iceberg explode. Take credit by showing Noteu to your friends, especially that friend you know would love it!

Risks and challenges

Previous to this campaign I have launched five Kickstarters allowing me to build a wealth of knowledge.

During my initial prototypes of Noteu I successfully launched one through Kickstarter exceeding my goal by 213%.

I successfully finished planning, development, manufacturing and finally shipping internationally to many countries around the globe.

Through this initial Kickstarter I'm confident I've gained the expertise to execute Noteu's business and manufacture it at scale.
