About this project

Electronics can be so smart. And they can make our lives so much easier, more comfortable and more fun. Our deep belief is that technology should follow form and function. Not the other way round. It has to be as flexible as you are. As fun as your life is.

The iilation Jacket is an elegant and comfortable leather jacket. The novel technology inside does its job. It keeps you warm and comfortable, when you ride in your convertible on a crisp sunny fall day. It lets you talk on the phone while enjoying the moment. It charges your phone. It does all that. And doesn‘t ask you to compromise. In comfort. Or fit.

Risks and challenges

We have high standards for quality of the materials, the style, the manufacturing, and of course product safety. Our supply chain co-integrates two manufacturing chains – textile manufacturing and electronics manufacturing. We will do quality checks and performance test with specific samples and during production at different steps. This setup requires rigorous organization and care. Delay in the implementation of our specific manufacturing steps or testing procedures may result in a delivery delay.
We have a close dialogue with our suppliers, we are there for their questions, and closely monitor the production setup and the production ramp up. Even though, we are not in final control of their internal actions. Any changes that might occur in our supply chain might delay our launch and the delivery of the rewards and the products.

Before we sell our product to the market, we need to achieve compliance with the legal framework and required certifications. Timing and plan for that are in place, and we do believe we should pass within our time frame. However if unforeseen challenges arise launch and delivery might be delayed.

We have fully functioning prototypes. The next phase is to make test samples and preproduction samples and to test them vigorously. If these tests show that we need to make modifications, we will do so. If such modifications should be severe we may encounter a delay in launch and delivery.

We use certified Bluetooth components. These are tested and verified under defined conditions. In these tests they were tested with many different mobile phones in order to assure compatibility. Due to the high number of new devices and variations it is possible that in some cases incompatibilities still occur. For that case we have procedures in place and we will work with our suppliers to find a solution.

We strongly believe that we will start shipping the iilation Jacket in April 2015.
