A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
In the 1900s, Nikola Tesla said wireless electricity was possible. Meet NIC, the world’s first totally wireless charger. All you have to do is connect NIC to a power outlet and have it at your desired location and connect the NIC Charging pad to your portable devices, such as phone or tablet. When you bring your device within 5 meters of NIC, it will start charging automatically and keep charging as long it stays within 5 meters of NIC.
The NIC system consists of two parts, the NIC charging cube which is connected to a power outlet and the NIC charging pad which can be permanently connected to your portable device.
Connect Your Device
NIC is compatible with most portable devices using USB-C, Micro-USB, and Lightning(IOS) connectors.
No Configuration Needed
You won’t need to do any setup or configuration, simply connect NIC Cube to a power outlet and connect the NIC charging pad to your device and you are all set.
Charging Made Easy
Once you are connected, your device will charge as long it stays within 5 meters of the NIC Cube even if it’s in your pocket or a bag.
The Benefits Of NIC
NIC is the world's first totally wireless charger. It can charge most portable devices wirelessly without the need to connect any cable.
A true wireless charging system for your portable devices. You can charge your phone or tablet anywhere within 5 meters of NIC.
Compatible with all NIC Cubes
The NIC charging pad is compatible with all other NIC Cubes you may have at home or in your office
NIC Cube and charging pad work together to make sure your device is never overcharged. There are safety measures in place to protect your devices.
NIC charger is the first of its kind, following the steps of Nikola Tesla ideas.
Save your Battery
Keeping your battery charged at a higher level all the time will increase your battery life and make your device work much longer.
Nikola Tesla created the first wireless energy transmission in the 1900s. It is now available for most of your portable devices.
Your portable device will keep charging as long it stays within 5 meters of NIC Cube.
The First in the World
NIC is the first and only totally wireless charging system in the world.
Increase the Lifespan of your Device
Keeping your battery charged at a higher level all the time will significantly increase your device’s life by protecting your battery from over discharging.
Easy to Use
Simply connect the NIC Cube to a power outlet and connect the NIC charging pad to your portable device and you are all set.
Designed for You
NIC Cube is designed to fit your home and office décor. The NIC charging pad is designed to be practically hidden behind your device.
NIC Cube works on 120/220 volts and is compatible with any NIC charging pad you may have.
What Happens if two Devices or more are Near Each Other?
The device closer to the NIC Charging Cube will charge faster than the other one. The main reason is due to signal propagation attenuation occurring. But Hey! It doesn’t really matter, because your device can be in your hands, pocket or on the table and it will keep charging.
Keep Your Phone Charging at all Times
Your portable device will keep charging all the time as long it stays within 5 meters of the NIC Cube. It will protect and enhance your battery life by avoiding over-discharging.
iPhone ± 2 to 4hr*
iPad ± 6 to 12hr*
Samsung Galazy S8/S9 ± 2 to 4hr*
*The charging time will depend greatly of how far your device is from the NIC Cube and how many devices are charging in the same time. The above are the result of our tests from a state charge of 20% to 100% at 2 meter from the NIC Cube.
Charging Made Easy
You no longer need to connect your device to have it charged. NIC Cube with its pad will keep charging your portable device as long it stays within 5 meters of NIC Cube, even if it’s in your pocket, desk or purse.
Why are we calling it the NIC Cube
Have a look at our prototype gallery, our first design of our NIC Charger was a cube and we had many version of it. Unfortunately, after many rounds of testing, we found out that having a cube for the transmit creates some blank spots. We then came up with the actual design to have a better signal propagation. The name and term NIC Cube stayed in our team and we decided to keep the term that way.

Risks and challenges
Our project is split in many phases, which means we might make some changes on our NIC Charger and that might impact our timeline. This is why we added extra time to each phase to avoid delay.
The certification phase might take some time, and we may have to adjust our design to fit specific requirements. This is why we have a 6-month period on our timeline for certifications. We do not want to end up having to delay our delivery date. We might even be able to send your NIC to you earlier (This is our main goal).
Our testing phase will involve many units and the certifying agency will be testing the NIC Charger. As mentioned in the certifications phase, this might lead to minor design changes.
The manufacturing phase will be our last phase before distribution. We have approached some manufacturers in the US and China to manufacture NIC, the final decision will be made during summer 2019 depending of the capability to manufacture the amount needed in the time frame we have to be able to distribute NIC to you on time.
Our timeline is set for about 18 months, we decided to add more margin in the certification and testing phase in order to accommodate any modification or changes needed for NIC to be fully certified. Our main goal is to respect this timeline very carefully and hopefully be ahead of time. We will give you updates about our development on a monthly basis
