About

The idea behind COOPY is to provide users with a safe, effective and simplified way of performing day-to-day functions, essential to living, with just a click of a button.

A modern design with an optimal size and shape makes COOPY easy to handle and carry in your pocket, wear on lanyard or have as an attachment on your belt or purse.

COOPY offers different mounting options to suit your needs.

Our COOPY device includes three buttons that can be configured according to your wishes. One of the buttons was specifically designed with a distinct look and feel to be used in emergency situations.

Texting while driving is not only dangerous to you, but puts others' lives at risk as well. With COOPY, the action of sending a predefined text is swift with just the click of the button you designate, you can easily tell your friends and family where you are and how much longer it will take until you get to them. 

If you were to ever find yourself in an emergency situation, you can send out an urgent message to a designated contact, alerting them that something is wrong and providing them with your exact coordinates. 

It provides comfort when you are walking alone late at night.

Or to athletes (like runners, cyclists, skiers, etc.) when something bad happens.

COOPY can locate people or items such as your children, pets, keys or luggage. When the tracking mode is selected, all three of the buttons will be disabled. The app will then notify you if your COOPY is out of your range and will extend your parameters to lead you to your device. This will help you to quickly locate your item or be reunited with your little one.

COOPY can do so many things to make your life easier. Snapping a picture of yourself hands free and sharing it online, turning on your home appliances, setting your room with a relaxing ambiance, and so much more can be done with just the simple click of a button.

Control and enjoy your music.

The more you imagine, the faster you will see that the possibilities are endless.

COOPY will be fully integrated with the popular platform, IFTTT, and we are working on several more integrations. Here are some examples of how you can control your home.

We created COOPY with the feature of time and location awareness, which allows your device to change functions automatically depending on where you are and when. For example, when you’re driving home and approaching your house, all three of the buttons can change to become your garage door opener or the switch to turn on your porch lights.

All configurations, settings and user-defined modes are easily accessible and achievable via the user friendly and intuitive COOPY application on your smartphone. The COOPY app is compatible with latest iOS and Android smartphones and will include Windows smartphones in the future. 

With three simple steps, the user can set its own modes, choose the functions of the buttons and set the time and/or location dependence, if needed. Our COOPY device is also not limited to the COOPY app. It can work perfectly with other great existing apps, which listen to iBeacons like IFTTT, Tasker, Launch Center Pro, Geofancy, Geohopper and others.

COOPY offers users the ability to choose modes, in which the three buttons will act differently according to the user's wishes. In addition, the smartphone app can automatically change the mode according to the time and/or location. For example "Home" mode is used when you're in your house and when you leave it, "Away" mode is automatically activated. 


Why we chose RFduino?

RFduino is a fingertip-sized, Bluetooth, Low Energy microcontroller, which is inexpensive, but extremely durable. Having been in the market already for quite some time, this piece, which is produced in the U.S.A., has already proven to be functional, effective and high in quality. 

The Arduino IDE can be used to program and load Arduino sketch to our COOPY, which simplifies a lot of stressful problems with unknown programming environments.

Integrations

Already a year in the making, we continue to work tirelessly on this project and find true enjoyment in designing, coding, testing, prototyping, 3D printing, breaking and building. 

All stages of this process until now were fun, but now the true work with the real product launch begins.

We successfully completed our first prototype some time ago and recently finalized the PCB design and the 3D casing model. Prototyping involved assembling and testing the functionality of the COOPY operation. Before the start of our campaign we wanted to be 100% sure that we can deliver what we have promised, in every respect.

In the future, we will be improving the functionality of COOPY. You will be able to easily update your device wirelessly with just a few clicks. This means that your COOPY will constantly acquire new functions and connections with future smart appliances to make your life simpler. 

We assure you that your COOPY will always be powered with the latest and greatest functionality. We will send frequent updates to all of our devices around the globe and keep you up-to-date with the developments and improvements.

We have already begun preparations for the manufacturing of COOPY, but in order to get to the next level, we need your support.  The money we raise will be put towards the many expenses we are expecting in the production of our smart gadget, including ordering the necessary tools and equipment, as well as placing bulk orders for the materials. With your backing of our product, you will help in bringing COOPY to life. 

THANK YOU!

A cost breakdown is included in the chart below.

We are a team of highly experienced technology enthusiasts focused on providing you with solutions that will make your life easier and safer for you and others. 

As a team, we have already devoted countless hours and much of our own funding towards the creation of our smart gadget, COOPY. We designed and developed COOPY with functionality for everyone, regardless of the user’s requirements.

Risks and challenges

Our first working prototype was completed almost a year prior to the start of our campaign. We have worked tirelessly and have done our best to secure the manufacturers and establish the supply chain. We have also chosen the right partners to team up with, including RF Digital and IFTTT.

We all know that setbacks are inevitable. However, we are committed to delivering your COOPY to you on time. With our hard work and our true passion for technology, we are confident that your product will not only arrive according to schedule, but it will make you wonder how you ever lived without it.
