Thanks for a successful campaign! If you missed out on getting your Loki please visit our website https://www.lokiproducts.com 

Loki is the premier smart WiFi meat thermometer designed to help track your main course to a perfect finish, while you enjoy the party or game across town!

Whether you’re cooking a turkey in the oven, steak on the grill, or brisket in the smoker, Loki lets you set it and forget it.

Loki monitors, tracks and records your meat’s cooking progress and sends notifications to the Loki app on your iOS or Android mobile device when your meat is ready. Run out of fuel in your grill? Need a suggestion for cook times, temps or recipes? Loki knows, and so will you!

Now for the best part! You can receive Loki notifications anywhere your mobile device is connected. So go to work, to the gym, or out with friends, confident that the status of your masterpiece meal is at your fingertips.

What other meat thermometer does all that? Exactly... that’s why we call Loki the most advanced meat thermometer on the planet.

Loki has been in development and testing for the last year and a half. We have visited all of our suppliers and already started preparing for mass production by placing orders. We have exceptional working relationships with our CMs, toolers, plastics, sheet metal, and cable suppliers. Many of our distributors and suppliers have been building our team's products for over 10 years.

Loki hardware has been completed and is ready for mass production (MP). We have completed multiple prototypes, Design Validation (DV) and Production Validation (PV) hardware. Testing and validation have been conducted with the pilot PV hardware for the last couple of months confirming the hardware matches our DV builds in quality and function. PV is also used to refine the production process and functional test procedure before Mass Production (MP). With your support we will be able to kick off mass production.

Hardware is complete and has been FCC and CE approved. We have validated our production hardware and started material procurement for our production build.

We just finished our design for manufacturing on the Loki chassis. We have worked with our tooler and plastic supplier to optimize the tool for fit and finish. Once we are funded we will kick off hard tooling.

The Loki probe is a unique design that provides highly accurate readings for both ambient and meat temperatures. Hard tooling for the probe has already started and we’ve been testing DV samples for several months.

Based in the Seattle area, Loki Products is a family owned and operated company born out of our large weekly gatherings around the dinner table to share a delicious meal with family and friends.

We are a family of engineers, marketers, creatives and amateur chefs who love food. Our conversations naturally turned to brainstorming an easier, more convenient way to keep an eye on the progress of our favorite slow cooked meats. We wanted to spend more time visiting with each other, instead of babysitting the oven, smoker or grill.

The result is Loki, The Smart WiFi Meat Thermometer.

Loki Products is the newest member of our family’s successful wireless communication and device ventures. Loki is the twelfth consumer electronics product brought to market by the same development team behind Loki Products. All of our designs are developed 100% in-house. We are a fully integrated company who takes "back of the napkin" concepts and develops every step from industrial/mechanical, electronics, software, production, and retail fulfillment to deliver high quality technology solutions for today’s lifestyle.

Thank you for your interest in Loki!

 

Risks and challenges

Every project carries with it risks and potential for delays. We have done all we can to mitigate these risks by waiting until the product and supply chain is very well established before starting our campaign.

Even in taking these steps, there are always unknowns. Our team has been making consumer electronics devices together for 10+ years and we are very experienced with the manufacturing process. If an unknown issue occurs, we will personally resolve the issue on-site at the factory as quickly as possible. It is very important to us to deliver our product to you in the time frame we have outlined.

We will be on the factory floor for the initial Mass Production build to oversee the process and ensure everything goes smoothly. This enables us to very quickly respond to any unforeseen issues which might arise.

We are very confident in our ability to produce this product in the time frame we have scheduled.
