What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The World's Smartest Wireless HD Audio Transmitter for Private Listening Anywhere Anytime by CloviTek

The ultimate solution for your TV or Home Audio Systems to wirelessly stream HiFi audio directly to any headphones or speakers over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

 

 

CloviFi allows you to enjoy TV audio directly into your headphones without disturbing others who don't want to listen. 

CloviFi connects to your TV or any other audio source and transmits wirelessly or via bluetooth to any iOS, Android smartphone or tablet.The device can be used by multiple people in the same room or throughout the house, with each person streaming to their own headphones what they want to listen to. 

 

 

 

 

You have total control of how you want to use CloviFi to stream audio, depending on the time of the day and your situation.

 

We've spent a long time building a high-quality device that has been built to last for years. The product uses the latest technology that allows for a premium listening experience.

 

 

CloviFi is very user-friendly and can be used by children and adults alike, all you need to do is connect the device to the back of your TV and connect it to your Wi-Fi or Ethernet. 

 

 

CloviFi comes with a free mobile app. Simply download a free app for iOS, Android, or Windows mobile device, connect to your Wi-Fi network and start transmitting sound from your TV to your mobile device by selecting one of the available channels on the list.

Working tirelessly for the past few years, the team is finally ready to go into mass production. After endlessly making, testing, and creating an army of prototypes, we’re ready to bring a compact, durable, and well-designed product to market. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CloviFi is a small, rounded black box with a modern sleek design. It offers you multiple ways to connect to your audio sources through various inputs and place it by the TV or behind it.

Support the project and get all these awesome rewards for helping us so early in our journey, we're so grateful to the community. 

If we reach $100,000, we've decided to give our community additional perks; all the products will come with WiFi + Bluetooth. Help us spread the word to friends and family by sharing the project.

 

This is an experience to connect with the inventor of the project, Vitaliy Mahidov. When he was younger and more dashing he received the highest culinary arts degree in Ukraine.

Vitaliy is going to dust off his saucepans and do a live 1-hour cooking session where he will teach you how to cook a healthy traditional Ukrainian borsch.

During the session, you'll be able to learn about Ukrainian history, traditions, and learn more about the life story of the founder.  

The CloviFi Enterprise Edition improves upon the CloviFi Home Edition. The CloviFi Home Edition is limited to home use, where mobile device signals are limited to a small number of devices. However, it does not perform well in crowded public places where a large number of mobile device signals interfere with the CloviFi Home Edition’s signals, causing transmission issues.

That’s where the advanced technology incorporated in the CloviFi Enterprise Edition comes in. The Enterprise Edition is able to filter out all the distracting mobile signals present in crowded public locations, and properly transmit a clear audio signal free of delays to all mobile devices connected to it.

This is the perfect device for places like airports, dental clinics, gyms, schools, events, library and other busy spaces.

 

              

 

              

 

 

 

 

 

We would like to give special thanks for helping with the CloviFi project to following: 

 

Vitaliy, the founder of CloviTek and the creator of CloviFi, was born in Ukraine. He spent his younger years growing up in a foster home and had the initial idea for the product here.

It was Christmas in 1994, and he thought it would be great to buy a TV, so his brothers and sisters who also shared the foster home with him could watch it together with him. He would go busking and sing Christmas carols, which allowed him to save enough money to buy an old TV.

The foster mum was not happy with him for buying the TV. She restricted the use of it and didn’t allow it to be turned on after 9:30pm. It was a lights out and no noise policy, and anyone making any noise would get seriously punished. It was here where Vitaliy first thought innocently about being able to watch and listen to the TV in private.

After growing up and receiving his Electrical Engineering degree, Vitaliy again had the idea. He was lifting weights at his local gym and saw his favorite show on TV. He thought, "Wouldn’t it be nice if I could listen to the show in private?" It was at this moment he decided to pursue his dream of starting a company, CloviTek and building CloviFi.

Our new low-cost and compact Wi-Fi TV audio transmitter device, CloviFi, enables multiple users to simultaneously connect and listen privately to high-quality TV audio sound without disturbing people nearby!

  

 

Risks and challenges

We will deliver CloviFi with the high quality after the funding meets the goal. Though we have tested our prototype and are confident in its performance, as with any hardware and software project, there are always schedule risks associated with manufacturing and supply-chain logistics based on the number of orders we receive.

The biggest challenge to what we are doing is getting the engineering right. A device like this one presents a unique set of challenges, requiring extensive work with hardware and with software. We believe wholeheartedly, however, in the value of this product, and we are committed to making it an exceptional experience for our users. If we encounter any delay due to an uncontrollable factor, contributing to delays, we will keep you, our awesome backers, up to date, and you can also reach out to us anytime.
