We did it... THANK YOU!
Thanks to your support, the PocKit is going to happen! If you would like one for yourself, here's where you can get it:
We are thrilled at our first successful Kickstarter launch, looking forward to many more!
hiking. When we go hiking, we often carry a flashlight and power bank to charge our stuff. We also like to listen to our own soundtracks as we enjoy nature. We thought to ourselves: why couldn't we save a bunch of space by putting all of these functions into a single device. And so, the PocKit was born.
The PocKit is a handy little device that crams a large amount of features in the smallest space possible. At roughly the same size as two smartphones stacked together, you get:
We were able to get all this into a tough little enclosure that you don't have to worry about dropping or getting soaked:
Proof of Concept
It's been quite a journey since we first started in late 2015. Once we knew what we wanted to make, we did numerous iterations until it looked and functioned exactly how we wanted it to.
After developing the PCB design, tooling, and mobile app, we've got production versions ready to go. Now we're looking for supporters to help us scale up our production and take this nifty little product to the market.
Who Are We?
We're a bunch of designers and engineers from Hong Kong and Shenzhen who want to make interesting products that make life simpler or more interesting. Here's the team:
We’re a group of engineers and designers with 80 years of combined experience who take joy in finding new ways to simplify and enrich your life. We’re committed to trying new things: there is no idea too far fetched, no concept too outrageous for us to attempt.
We're all Kickstarter fans ourselves and enjoyed seeing interesting new products come to fruition. When we developed our own interesting new idea, it was only natural that we would turn to Kickstarter to make it happen.
Another great thing about Kickstarter is that we get to skip layers of reselling and retailing and directly reach you. This means that you get a better deal on the product, and that we can focus on making the best product possible. It's a win-win!
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order multiple units? - If you want to order multiple units, just multiply the pledge. Shipping is a flat rate of $100HKD for multiple units. For example, if want 2x super early birds, simply select the super early bird pledge and enter $500HKD for the total amount. Then we'll ship you 2 units.
I've already made a pledge, but I want a couple more PocKits, what can I do? - If you've already made a pledge and paid for shipping, simply enter another "Thank You!" pledge for the number of units you'd like, and we'll add another additional PocKit's to your shipment! For example, if you already pledged a super early bird but want another 2 units, simply enter $400HKD for another 2 units. Please note that you can only do this with limited offers that are still available. So if you missed the super early bird, then you would need to enter $470HKD for another 2 units.
Does the PocKit come with a warranty? - Yes, the PocKit comes with one year of coverage from the date of delivery.
What OS does the PocKit mobile app support? - The PocKit supports both iOS and Android.

Risks and challenges
Through gradual persistence, we've gotten the PocKit to production stage, so both the hardware, software, and packaging are at their final iterations. This means we will be able to deliver the PocKit on the promised date. Once we receive pledges, all that remains is to arrange for shipping. We'll be sending them out via courier, so that shouldn't be a problem either.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
