Not just all brains, we are designing a large line of unique and sexy Boogli's.
Docks will never be the same again!Charging our mobile devices is a necessary but boring process. We wanted to create a way to make it not just functional, but more enjoyable and entertaining. So we created Boogli—a patented charging dock and mobile app system designed to bring delight into your ordinary daily routines. Acting as many things including your speaker to enjoy music to your morning alarm clock. Boogli is the quirky sidekick that brings unexpected fun into your family’s day. Connect your mobile device to a Boogli character and watch it come to life!
Realizing there was an opportunity to enhance the tedious experience of charging, we created a system that made the experience enjoyable. By making an extension of your phone, we created a personality that becomes a friend, an alarm clock, a singer and so much more. For example, there are features that are great for children. Currently, Boogli can help in training a little one who tends to wake up too early in the morning. You can set your character to become a certain color at a specific time and tell your child “do not get up or come out of your room until Boogli turns pink”. In addition, if funded, we will create educational apps that tie directly to Boogli (i.e. character lights or up tells children good job or good try when they answer questions, etc.).

Process for a prototype.
Coming up with a unique character is challenging. We had prior experience in character development, but making one that worked with an app personality added an increased level of difficulty. We wanted something that was memorable and cute, yet not cheezy. The direction we agreed upon created a good balance.
After a few rounds with the experts at Shinbone Creative, Frédérick (fredus) Alves-Cunha (Despicable Me artist) and the SNL Creative, we were able to bring our vision to fruition. The characters came to life, working with our microchip and software creations.
Creating something simple is never easy. There were several possible directions to choose (and many we will), but we had to narrow it down to what this system would really be and what problems it could solve. The core of Boogli today is a personality, an alarm clock and a music player. Each character is unique and does things in its own interesting way. The future will include various games, facilitating education for children and a story teller mode.
A Personality is Born
We reached out to sound engineer Steve Bissinger, who was involved in many cinematic blockbusters including Monsters, Inc. to help us create the unique personalities. His expertise enabled us to create individual experiences with each of the characters and a defined process for future creations.
Being cute is complex
We are working with the Apple MFI program to be certified. This is HUGE and we are so excited. More details to come as we wait for our patents to clear!

Risks and challenges
We were strategic and methodical with our production process and tested the prototype for over 10 months. We now believe our product is ready for the consumer. Any possible issues that may arise will be handled with a smile and friendly customer service.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
