About this project

 

PLAYBULB by MIPOW is a product range of Bluetooth Smart Home Lighting. PLAYBULB Solar is the new member of the PLAYBULB series. 

With the Playbulb devices, you’re not limited to one color or even a selection of static colors – you have the entire color spectrum at your disposal. 

It is fun and easy to use right out of the box.

Solar Panel + Internal Lithium-ion Battery

This PlayBulb relies on solar power. In day time, the solar panel absorbs light energy and stores them in the internal lithium-ion battery. Place it under the sun and it charges automatically. Charging is just this easy! Charge Time: 8 - 12 hours sunlight directly. Once it is fully charged, it can operate up to 25 hours. 

 

 

 

   

The built-in light sensor makes PLAYBULB Solar a smart device. It turns on automatically when it gets dark while turns off when it is bright enough. 

There is also manual button included to turn on the indoor lighting. The brilliance of the color makes PLAYBULB Solar lights suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

With a fresh new design and intuitive interface, the new PLAYBULB X  app will be launched by mid of this year supporting all the PLAYBULB smart lighting series. 

Meet the new PLAYBULB X 2.0 

PLAYBULB X gives you full control for ch­anging colors and activating special lig­hting effects. It is available as a free­ download through the App Store and Goog­le Play.

We are making PLAYBULB X "One App. All Control". This is quite a challenge as PLAYBULB products are different in functions and features. PLAYBULB X app will work for all PLAYBULB products that are with colour LED feature.

Risks and challenges

Our challenge here is to accurately estimate the required materials purchase for the first batch of mass production. KICKSTARTER is a perfect platform for us to test the market. We like to know how tech-lovers think about our new products. We need to hear your opinions so that we can keep enhancing our hardware and software. We also need your helps to spread out the message. With the fund we raise on KICKSTARTER, we will make materials purchase planning accordingly. Besides, we will use it as marketing fund to make PLAYBULB Solar a market success. We will make it as R&D budget to keep enhancing our hardware and software. In our product development roadmap of PLAYBULB family, more products are coming. We are making PLAYBULB X an ALL-IN-ONE mobile app to control the complete range of PLAYBULB products. This is extremely challenging as each product are different in function and features. Plus, we know delivering a good user experience is the key to winning customer's attention. We always put this at high priority during product development.
