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.

For those of you who don't know us...

At Jide Technology, we’re all about Android because it represents freedom, differentiation, and versatility for users. With Android’s popularity in mobile around the world, we believe it can be so much more. Its ecosystem of 2+ million apps means you can do just about anything you want and need. That’s why we created Remix OS, and that’s what separates Remix IO from the rest.

What is Remix IO? 


Redefining All-in-one. Remix IO is a beautifully designed Android device for your home, office, or school. Engineered to be a 4K set-top box, gaming console, and PC in a single device, Remix IO is powered by the latest Remix OS (based on Android Nougat), bringing you unprecedented possibilities in an affordable, easy to setup, and simple to use device.

 

What is Remix IO+?

What would happen if you ran Remix OS on top-of-the-line mobile hardware? Remix IO+ is the answer. Based on popular demand by our Kickstarter community, Remix IO+ represents the the latest in hardware + software and is a TV box that’s built to last.

 

 

Built to last

While technology advances in the blink of an eye, Remix IO and Remix IO+ are designed to “future proof” your TV and the content you enjoy. Each function or feature listed below ensures that you stay current with technology for the next few years. As others play catch up, you can rest assured that Remix IO and Remix IO+ have you covered.

 

Hardware beyond industry standards.

The Remix IO line comes in above the competition with better processors, high-performance RAM, more storage, and more ports than any product in its class. All at affordable prices. 

Make your TV great again.

Remix IO’s 4K@60fps and HDR graphics capabilities ensure that no matter what display you’re plugged into, you’ll be getting super smooth, optimized graphics that make whatever you’re doing on Remix IO look spectacular.

Dual modes. Singular Remix experience.


We’ve taken the liberty to integrate a completely new mode to cater to everyone from the couch potato to the corporate executive. Our TV mode features a beautiful HD user interface designed with larger app icons and is fully remote control compatible so it’s perfect for moments when your screen is a bit further away and your keyboard/mouse isn’t necessary.

To Android or to Android TV. That is no longer the question.

More importantly, our TV mode has been engineered specifically to let you run both Android and Android TV apps on one device. So instead of having an Android TV box that doesn’t support your Android phone apps and vice versa, we’ve integrated both into one. At the end of the day, why shouldn’t Android and Android TV coexist? It’s all Android to us.

Gamer’s paradise.

One of the best parts of Android is the massive collection of games it offers. Instead of creating a separate gaming ecosystem, we believe that Android’s already got it all. From silly casual games to immersive AAA titles, everyone can find something fun to play. Believe us when we say, with Remix IO, Android gaming has never looked better on the big screen.

The ultimate Android Gaming Toolkit.

With great power comes great responsibility. That's why our Gaming Toolkit in Remix IO is one of our favorite features yet. We all know that gaming on Android is primarily built for the touchscreen, so what would be the point of allowing all these inputs if you can't use them?

Our revolutionary Gaming Toolkit allows you to easily custom map your most natural keyboard/mouse and game controller buttons to any Android games to give you a completely new way of playing. Just take a look above at how we mapped for Vainglory and Don't Starve!

Fit for any display

Remix IO is the first device of its kind to come with two display ports: HDMI and VGA. While many of our Remix Mini users plugged Mini into a TV, there were also a good number who used hip, old school monitors with VGA ports. This time around, we’re giving you the ability to choose your Remix IO’s home.

Sharing is caring.

With the latest Remix OS, set multiple accounts so everyone can have a personalized Remix IO experience. Create a guest mode for...well, guests (or friends). More importantly, if you happen to be Head of IT at a school or company, multiple accounts opens up a whole new universe of Android for Work and Android for Education opportunities. Reach out to bd@jidemail.com to learn more.

Optimized multiple window experience.

One of the hallmarks of Remix OS in PC mode windowing functionality has received a serious upgrade in the latest version of Remix OS. With a specialized algorithm, we’ve enhanced multiple windows so that it makes sure to give you the best experience with whichever app you’re using.

Classic Remix OS PC Mode.

With all the new features and functionalities baked into Remix OS, we’ve also made sure to stay true to our core vision – the Android PC. Remix IO’s PC Mode includes all of the classic Remix OS features that brought the concept of Android PC to life: multiple windows, multitasking, taskbar, start menu, keyboard & mouse optimization, and so much more.

 

 

The developer community is a huge part of what we do. This time around, to prove just how committed we are to opening up the possibilities of these devices, we’re also giving you the proverbial keys to the engine. 

For the first time ever, our backers will receive a developer kit consisting of 2 sets of SDKs along with their hardware. The first will be vanilla AOSP, which allows you to port stock Android into your Remix IO board. The second will be a Remix OS SDK. We’ll give you the kernel, most of the framework, and more to give you the ability to develop, customize, and build the future of Android with us. For example, you can modify the kernel to support your favorite hardware peripherals, and the framework to customize certain features and look and feel of Remix OS.

Feature your app on Remix Central with our Developer Kit Reward!

Our developer kit is engineered to give you Remix IO in its most open form. With the SDKs, our hope is you'll have all the necessary tools to create a new future for Android. You can build custom ROMs for other Remix users. And as an app developer, you can create and optimize apps for Remix IO and Remix OS. Back our Developer Reward and we could select your app to be featured on Remix Central, our app portal used by over a million Remixers around the world.

A BIG THANK YOU to our community

Last year, we came onto Kickstarter with two revolutionary products that were the first of their kind. Remix Ultratablet and Remix Mini took significant steps to make the concept of an “Android PC” a reality, and with your awesome support, they were resounding successes - with over 22,000 backers from 128 countries.

We’ve come a long way since we introduced Remix OS to the world in March 2015, and we’ve hit significant milestones since then. Remix IO is the culmination of everything we’ve learned along the way. From market research to direct feedback from our devoted community, this is for you.

 

 

 

 

Our founders are three ex-Google engineers who've accrued more than 26 years combined working at Google HQ. The products they've had a hand in leading or building have been used by over 2 billion people in the world.

Jeremy Chau (1st software engineer on Google AdWords): "Our vision is more than just this product. We want to make tools for people to create & communicate, and then watch them being used in innovative ways we never imagined."

David Ko (Lead engineer on AdWords mobile for Local Businesses): "Building an operating system takes time and a lot of hard work. But building a great operating system takes more than that. It takes a lot of feedback from the community who use it everyday." 

Ben Luk (Lead engineer on Google Maps, Asia): "Be a part of our community. Engage with us and Remix will reflect your ideas and what you need from your personal computing."

FAQ

  • We expect to begin shipping in March 2017. Multiples unit orders may arrive in separate shipments to mitigate import duties in certain countries.

    Last updated:
  • It normally takes 7 - 15 business days after shipping. However, your parcel(s) may subject to custom inspection so the actual delivery time will be affected.

    Last updated:
  • At the end of the campaign, we’ll be sending you a survey form where we’ll ask you for all your relevant information, including your shipping address and information.

    Last updated:
  • No. All items will be shipped using standard post.

    Last updated:
  • No. We cannot legally ship any parcels without stating a proper value or mark it as a gift.

    Last updated:
  • The backers as the importer of good(s) will be responsible for any customs charges at the time of delivery. The tax rate is heavily dependent on your local custom authority so Jide cannot give a quote of it at the present time.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. After the campaign is over and as we get the first-batch of Remix IO ready, we will send you an exit survey through Kickstarter to confirm and you can change your shipping information then.

    Last updated:
  • After we’ve shipped out your package, there will be no way for us to redirect the package. Please plan ahead and leave us your correct shipping address in the survey form sent out at the end of the campaign.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. We can ship your pledge to a P.O. box.

    Last updated:
  • Sorry, we will not be able to ship to FPO/APO addresses.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. We will keep supporting Remix OS for Remix IO with continued updates and upgrades as hardware allows.

    Last updated:
  • Remix IO will run on Remix OS based on Android Nougat. Rockchip has agreed to work with us in developing the RK3368 chip for Nougat. Depending on the development schedule, Remix IO will either ship with Remix OS based on Nougat, or it will ship with Marshmallow and get an OTA update to Nougat.

    Last updated:
  • Remix IO supports all stock Android languages. That means 80-90% of text will appear in your native language. For the remaining 10-20%, we are still working to fully localize Remix OS system messages for all languages.

    For typing in your preferred language, you will need to download an input app that allows you to do this. If your preferred physical keyboard layout is something other than QWERTY, you’ll need to adjust the physical keyboard layout in ‘Settings > Language & input > Physical keyboard’.

    Last updated:
  • Remix IO has both HDMI and VGA ports. If it is another connection you need (ie. DisplayPort) you may need to source an adaptor.

    Last updated:

    Last updated:
  • With Miracast technology, you can mirror your screen and wirelessly cast it onto another screen that has a Miracast receiver.

    If you have a Remix IO connected to a TV in a living room (or to a projector in a meeting room) your cell phone screen can be wirelessly mirrored onto the bigger screen.

    Remix IO can also cast its screen to other Miracast receivers. This means that as your Remix IO is in operation, it can cast its screen onto another display to show the same screen.

    Last updated:
  • Multiple accounts is a feature available on Remix IO, but is turned off by default.
    Go to Remix OS options > Experimental features to turn it on.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, Remix IO is compatible with the majority of game controllers that support Android devices. We will be testing the most popular gamepads to ensure compatibility before launch in March.

    Last updated:
  • We will most likely stick to the hardware as is so we can avoid delays in delivering your Remix IO(s) on time, however this may be subject to change.

    Last updated:
  • Not all Android games are compatible with game controllers. However, Remix IO will support game controller key mapping. This means that if the game does not support game controllers, you can use your game controller to interact with the game. This will make more games playable with game controllers.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, you can expand your internal storage up to 128GB through the TF card slot with a microSD card.

    The microSD card can read/write data, and it can be used to save and run apps directly off of.

    Last updated:
  • The fan acts as a cooling mechanism for the CPU in Remix IO. When the CPU gets hot, the fan turns on and can cool the CPU up to 10 degrees Celsius. A cooler CPU means better performance and much less potential lag when the CPU is pushed hard.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, you can plug a webcam into any of the USB slots and video chat on apps like Skype.

    Last updated:
  • As long as you find a mic source (connected through your audio port or USB), you should be able to use Google Now. Voice commands are dependent on apps themselves and in their ability to support voice commands.

    Last updated:
  • The Remix IO can output video up to 4K and 60fps.

    Last updated:
  • For ONE (1) year after receiving your Remix device, we will replace or repair your Remix with a new one if there are inherent major defects related to the hardware. Inherent major defects are defined as problems that don't allow the device to function normally. For instance, if your Remix can't start up, or it doesn't charge or power at all, these would be considered inherent major defects. Hardware defects that result from clear negligence, misuse or abuse of the hardware by the user are not covered by this replacement policy. Please be in possession of the hardware in question and be prepared to supply us with photos and a detailed description to show the inherent major defects you are experiencing.

  • Remix Minis will stay on Remix OS based on Android 5.1. The Mini’s CPU is an Allwinner H64 chip. This chip doesn’t support Android 6.0 or 7.0. Until they provide support for it, the Mini will stay on Remix OS based on Android 5.1.

    Last updated:
  • Both the 'eyes' you see are lights. The left eye indicates TV mode and the right eye indicates PC mode. The 'nose' you see is the physical button to put the IO into sleep mode and to wake it. The 'mouth' you see is the IR receiver. I hope this helps! And, we will update the page with a close up image of the front of the IO.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, you can expand your internal storage up to 128GB through the TF card slot with a microSD card.

    Last updated:
  • Remix IO can decode and output videos up to 4K. However, for platform (ie. YouTube, Netflix, etc.) specific videos that are in Full HD (1080p) and 4K, we are still in development to work out some issues. We fulfill in March and we’re confident we will be able to work out those issues by the time your Remix IO ships.

    Last updated:
  • It's roughly 12.8cm x 11.7cm x 3.5cm, but the dimensions may be subject to change.

    Last updated:
  • Both the IO and IO+ have dual band (2.4Ghz/5Ghz) at 802.11(a/b/g/n/ac)
