This is the first generation prototype of ROKR Vitascope.  We spent half a year improving its appearance, and features.  The original one had no base, the stability is very poor while shaking the handle.

The second edition, we tried to add a door with steam-punk style, and made a prototype of a rough retro projector.

Also, we added a base to enhance the stability of product during operation.

We've designed so many different out-looking doors of the Vitascope, and picked the best one from one of them.    

For the next generation, we made a better base to make the projector look cooler, and more stable.

We have customized the dedicated film for the ROKR Vitascope.  We‘ve adjusted the width of the film and the spacing between each frames for the best scenes.

The figure below shows the effect of the original projector.

We iterated and tested a lot of motors and bulbs for best display.

Bulb parameter:Watts: 1W, Lumen: 110-120, Color temperature: 6000-6500 

We've tested the service life and performance of 20 led lights with same color temperature, and picked one that has the best performance and the longest service life.

Rotate the crank, listen to the motor sound, and see how the motor and hand generator works.   

 Let's show it!!

 If you think this small projector is only a model, then you are wrong.  It’s a real film projector.  Very classic, very mechanical, let this small projector take you back to the old days when every scene is black and white. 

 No Glue, No Chemicals, Gear Transmission 

 You will have a great experience when assembling the ROKR series products.  It would be a little challenging to put all 172 pcs laser-cut wood parts together.  This is a perfect opportunity to interact with your family, friends, and your partner.  You will have a strong sense of accomplishment after you finish your work.

Detailed  instrument

 You will need 5-8 hours of continuous work to complete the assembly which would help with the improvement of focus and concentration.  It's also a good time to spend with someone you love to finish ROKR projects.

Here is a review from one of the ROKR fans: 

 River is a retired film projectionist. More than twenty years of work time has made him have special feelings for old film projectors. In the 21st century, the old film projector has gradually faded out of people's lives, and River has already retired at home.  River's happiest thing is to watch some classic old movies and telling his stories with his granddaughter, Emily.

One day, Emily visits her dearest grandpa with a "ROKR VITASCOPE" as his birthday present.  River likes it so much, he can't wait to start assembling the kit with Emily.  It seems that they're gonna have a great day together... 

 "When I was a child, I often worried about not having a battery at hand for electric toys.  As growing up, I‘ve learned about the waste battery recycling and environmental pollution problems.  Therefore, I always wanted to make a electric toy that didn't need a battery."

-ROKR Designer

                           ROKR is a brand of Robotime company. 

Why we use wood as our main raw material for ROKR products?

Wood vs. Plastic

Since wood is a renewable resource with high insulation properties, high recycling and resource recovery rates, and low pollution rates in harvesting and milling, wood is considered a sustainable and environmentally-friendly material.  Not only is Basswood the right choice for the environment, it’s also the best choice for performance.  

Consider this chart: 

No burr!!   High precision!! 

Our factory has passed the FAMA Disney, FCS, BSCI standard; 

Our products has passed the EN71-1, -2, -3, ASTMF963, EMC, EN62115, Rohs, etc...  

 We now own 4 factories covering an area of 409,0286 ft² in China.  

ROKR factory now has over 400 workers and 150+ high-tech equipments including 139 laser-cutting machine.  

Our production capacity can reach 10,000,000 pcs/month. 

Risks and challenges

With the best design and supply chain, our goal is to spread the brand to the world. There are more and more fans around the world have started to understand our brand, but we still trying hard on promoting our brand's design, products, concept, and ideas to every corner of the world. 

We working really hard on updating and improving our products based on customer feedback. We hope that ROKR could be known by more people and your voice is really valuable to us. We also look forward to hearing from each of you, so that we can do better and better. Our mission is to make sure every one of you is going to have a perfect customer experience.
