The more bracelets you have, the more Secret Boxes you can share with close friends.
THE SECRET BOX: A PROTECTED AND SHARED LOCATION
Thanks to the app you will have full access to your Lock-Rs group’s Secret Box, a place where you can share new content with your close group of real friends. For example you can share: photos, videos, texts and audio messages and more. You can even download previously shared posts on the most popular social websites (Fb, Twitter, Instagram), making them accessible only to those who share your Secret Box. This way all your personal content will be safe and secure in your Secret Box but always accessible to you and those you share your lock with.
YOU WILL ALWAYS KNOW IF YOUR LOCK-RS PADLOCK HAS BEEN OPENED
Every time the lock is opened from someone in your group, the other Lock-Rs will receive a notification. This way all co-owners will be informed and up to date.
Short vibrations give tangible feedbacks of what is going on, allowing every Lock-Rs owner to be notified of different events without even looking at the phone.
PRODUCT AND PROTOTYPES
We literally developed the Lock-Rs bracelet on our wrists. In order to ensure ease of use, comfort and maximum security of the lock mechanism, we went through many prototypes. The current layout is the result of many hits and misses and all the micro improvements, even down the tenth of a millimeter, developed in between.
TAKE A PEEK AT THE 3D MODEL OF THE BRACELET
THE BRACELET: We wanted the core technology inside the bracelet to be subtle and effective, using only the minimum necessary components. This is how we were able to guarantee charges up to 6 months with a tiny, light and replaceable CR1225 button cell battery.
HAVE A LOOK AT THE 3D MODEL OF THE LOCK
THE LOCK: We chose to develop a magnetic lock to avoid having to use a key, but at the same time being able to keep it a fully mechanical one. As a result it will work despite the absence of batteries or energy supplies. Small magnets, that create different combinations, allowing for the unlocking of the device by simply getting it close to the bracelet.
The bracelet is made locally, with a certified hypoallergenic elastomer that is commonly used in the medical field. This was the logical choice to avoid allergic reaction with prolonged skin contact. The bracelet is fully adjustable and it's guaranteed to fit almost all wrists.
THE LOCK The lock is made of a high quality grade zinc cast and colored with powder coating.
THE SHACKLE: The unique Lock-Rs shackle is made of hardened titanium for superior cut resistance.
Wireless connectivity: Bluetooth Low Energy 4.1
Power and battery: Replaceable CR1225 lithium coin cell, up to 6 months life
Materials: Hypoallergenic TPE rubber / ABS core unit / zinc alloy padlock body / anodized Titanium for the shackle
Security: Hardened 6 mm shackle for superior cut resistance / Solid die cast body / 4 pins combination
LITTLE SUPPORT ARE ALSO IMPORTANT, PRINT YOUR REWARD!
THE CONCEPT: WHEN LOCK-RS BEGAN
The conceptual idea for Lock-Rs started from a boy named Jacopo, age 11 at the time. Being an avid follower of Kickstarter, TED and many inspirational documentaries, felt a growing need to share his ideas with friends but at the same time protecting his privacy.
It all began here: in addition to the protection of valuable possessions and the ability to share among trusted people, thanks to the magnetic lock and bracelet (the key to Lock-Rs) he wanted to protect his digital universe with its ever expanding usage in the social media (Fb, Twitter, Instagram). This is why the Lock-Rs project is based on the interaction between a magnetic bracelet to open a physical lock. It is also a digital lock to access the App where all your digital privacy will be safe.
Risks and challenges
Jacopo worked with a team of professionals that followed the development of this project, from concept to production. This is one of the many reasons we are confident that we can finalize and deliver the product to backers in a timely manner.
We have a close relationship with the company in charge of electronics for developing the custom PCB module for our bracelets.
A very well known locker company is developing, as we speak, the engineering scaled production of the magnetic system of Lock-Rs
Any project carries with it challenges: a common one is the development, assembly and production delays. This project is geared toward reducing or eliminating those risks by working in very close contact with our suppliers, which have all been already established. this said, no project can be 100% risk free.
If you believe in us end you will choose to back Lock-Rs, you will be updated frequently and you will always be up to speed with the progress and development of the project. This to us is a natural process, as we’d love to involve backers as much as we’re involved with Lock-Rs ourselves.
We sincerely hope that you will help us achieve our goal and make Lock-Rs a reality.
