About this project
HOMIES are hand-crafted figures that have a chip inside that allows them to communicate with the HOMIES App on your phone.
The HOMIES App is able to save your car’s location every time you park, automatically, without you doing anything at all!
Where’s my car?
Sometimes we can’t remember where exactly we parked our cars. Maybe in a massive parking lot, maybe a new city. Maybe we just tend to forget these tiny details of life. HOMIES are here to help you out!
Is it magic or what?
By saving your car’s GPS location automatically, the HOMIES App will show you a map with your parking spot on it.
That’s handy! But wait, there’s more. When you get within 50 metres / 160 feet approx. of your car, and the HOMIES App detects the HOMIE in the distance, it will guide you there with a “Hotter… Colder…” radar until you are in front of your beloved car.

There are many ways you can help us funding this campaign starting from very little. You can make this project happen and get some really nice rewards for you or for maybe for a gift to someone.
I'm not alone on this journey. I’ve teamed up with some brilliant professionals to help me out with the crafting, graphic work, media and electronics so that together, we can bring something meaningful to you.
Here is a summary of the project milestones we've gone through already and those ahead.
Prototypes, prototypes, prototypes
We have gone through several iterations of the HOMIES and the HOMIES App until everything works as it should and looks and feels right.

Risks and challenges
Our passionate team is pushing very hard to make this happen and to bring HOMIES to life despite any obstacles that may appear. And we promise to be transparent about any of those potential obstacles that we may face on the road ahead.
SODA-STYLE DEMAND ////
Perhaps we'll get featured in 10 major newspapers worldwide and all of a sudden HOMIES are the new Coca-Cola which leads the project to get 100 times the number of orders we expect. Happy trouble they say, highly unlikely we think. In any case, we are prepared to fulfil orders up to 3 times the goal on the given dates.
We’d love to be able to send the HOMIES by e-mail :-) however we must ship them through old-fashioned mail. This means there is general risk in the reliability of shipping companies. We'll make sure that we keep track of your orders at all times.
We've been conservative with our timeline estimates so as not to disappoint anyone in case of any unknown problems that may arise. If we can ship earlier, rest assured we will. We love to think that you are making the HOMIES team bigger so we want you to be part of our process, every step of the way.
