About this project
GET EYSE, SAVE LIVES!
What is EYSE?
EYSE is a next-gen compact personal assistant for multiple applications including Driver-Assistance, personnel monitoring and more. In addition it also acts as a tele-presence pocket accessory that let's you extend your senses everywhere! Inspired from the best of robotics & AI, and decades of Science Fiction! If you have phobias of worldly things, or wish to improve your skills, conquer frights & build confidence doing things, or be "virtually-really" present somewhere, take EYSE with you! Your out of body experience enabling, ET-like robotic companion!
What is Driver Assistance?
EYSE monitors both on-road and off-road activities and can alert the driver to evade danger. In turn in can also monitor the driver to alert for weariness or falling asleep. There are multiple more uses for EYSE and the applications keep expanding.
What is Tele-presence?
Noun - The use of virtual reality technology, especially for remote control of machinery or for apparent participation in distant events. Noun A sensation of being elsewhere, created by the use of virtual reality technology.
What is Anxiety?
A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
What are Phobias?
A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear reaction. If you have a phobia, you may experience a deep sense of dread or panic when you encounter the source of your fear. The fear can be of a certain place, situation, or object. Unlike general anxiety disorders, a phobia is usually connected to something specific.
How can EYSE help me overcome my nervousness, fears and phobias?
EYSE is a means to extend your presence to locations, situations and circumstances that you would cause you uneasiness, anxiety, fears and more. By knowing you are physically disconnected from the place but have full sensory presence at the fear-point, you get to experience and overcome your worries and fears. That means you can cut down your learning curve or adaptation curve and overcome your shortcomings!
- Do you have stage fright?
- Do you want to be extra careful while driving?
- Do you want to know what your kids are up to?
- Do you want to fly like the birds?
- Do you want to go snorkeling without getting wet?
- Do you fear water or animals or insects or ...?
- Do you want to learn a certain skill in a unique different way and cut learning curves?

- EYSE are WiFi-connected spy like pocket tools that let you share and experience extraordinary moments in live, real 3D vision, sound & motion. You can take EYSE anywhere - on all of your adventures and missions.
- EYSE has twin cameras that capture simultaneous videos from two perspectives to create an immersive 3D experience for the remote viewer over a direct wi-fi connection. EYSE also has bi-directional audio and sends inertial and motion data to the viewer, giving them an immersive 'in the moment' experience of all the action.
WHAT IS 3D?
The way human eyes work is to focus themselves on an object at the same time, giving the brain two views of the same object. The separated views help in creating depth due to the separation between the eyes (65mm ~ 70mm).
NOW: The EYSE does the same thing: it focuses on the same object with a pair of eyes. The processing unit of EYES (Digital Brain or BrainBox) assembles the images and through computing and compression, outputs the format most suitable to be projected to the natural eyes of a person. The bi-convex lenses correct the flat view of the cameras and wrap them in a circular format to make scenes look immersive. Imaging something you can touch, hold and relate to, as if it were right here, right now!

RANGE OF ELECTRONICS FOR EYSE & SPYSE
EYSE - SPYSE (FIRST PROTOTYPE)
WHICH EYSE FOR YOUR EYES?
Long Term Development Plan with PRO and MAX Sensor Suite - SDK
Integrate sensors and computing to produce very smart, handy and pro-active robotic companions for everyday use. The EYSE Developer Kit will accompany all EYSE shipments. If you are interested in developing new skills (drone applications) for the EYSE, the SDK will be aimed to release in advance of your EYSE Drone shipping.
The Brains of the EYSE extend to multiple robots and road-map for the company is to see our users be able to swap the robot brains (BrainBox) across various platforms, saving themselves cost and expanding their features to a new body for more robotics upgrades!
HANDLING THE EYSE
EYSE - BETA APPS AND TESTS
The Apps and hardware will be refined prior to shipping. we are showing some of the Beta prototypes being tested and looking great! The good feature of the EYSE is that the Apps can be updated over Google Play and we will release regular updates that can be used to upgrade your EYSE yourself after shipping. LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT: Integrate sensors and computing to produce very smart and pro-active robotic companions for everyday use.

Risks and challenges
Similar to many Kickstarter projects, we too face risks and challenges. The primary risks for us include:
To achieve the level of simplicity in user experience that we have, we have had to design and engineer a very complex system. We have taken two key steps to ensure our engineering success. 1) We have formed an amazing team of engineers and designers, and 2) we test our products with an obsession for perfection, which at times lead to decisions requiring budgeted effort over and above. In the last year, we have designed and upgraded 3 generations of prototypes, had a 250pcs production run of electronic boards, which were all successful and were carried out in Taiwan. including 500 custom cameras, touch panels and LCDs already manufactured, we will have a run of beta pre-production units for the plastics when they have been primed for production over the next few months. This will be followed up with significant user testing, and we keep enormous amounts of data to guide our future work.
We have to upgrade the Smartphone apps over the next few months to make them more user interaction driven, making them stable for Google Play downloads and extend the Android Apps for iOS platforms.
FCC and CE certifications also take some time and edits to get approved, so we anticipate starting that process immediately after the campaign.
SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS
Many Kickstarter campaigns face delays and problems when taking their prototypes to production. This includes problems finding suppliers and reliable sub-components for mass-production.
Keeping that risk in mind, we already have established relationships with manufacturers who are ready to take the production forward including pre-production prototype builds. Our plans and projections are looking good and now require the capital to put them in action.
Finding the right people is a challenge for any company and we have had the privilege of a great team of engineers and now complimented with manufacturers as well, who are vested into the success of our company, giving us more leverage to perform better! We have a great time building amazing products and we really want to expand on that and get more amazing people on-board. We are actively looking for new members to join Vairdo and make the ordinary, extraordinary! But we still need help from our extended team (support group) to make that possible.
Since we want to ensure that all our design intentions are carried through to a quality product, we will work diligently and thoroughly with our manufactures and suppliers. Although we are confident with our timelines, we humbly understand that achieving quality manufacturing can be challenging and striving for excellence can take extra time.
We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan. But we do not know exactly how many units we would have to build, we've also tried to buffer the time in for that purpose. We’ve learned a lot from experience, but sometimes forecasts don’t always hit the mark. Should we miss projections, we’ll keep everyone informed and keep everyone up to date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
