About this project

The Kickstarter campaign may be over, but that doesn’t mean that we’re going to disappear. You can still get your hands on your own Voiceboard bundle by visiting our official website at voiceboard.info. Keep updated with our activities by subscribing to our newsletter! We may not have achieved our Kickstarter goal, but we’re an investor-funded company, and Voiceboard will still be shipping from January 2015 !

Voiceboard is the world's first voice and gesture controlled application for making your presentations unique and impressive. It’s here, it’s ready, and it could be yours first.

Every presenter wants to be remembered for their message, and every audience member wants to be involved with the topic.

With 30 million presentations given each day, it’s practically an unavoidable right of passage in life, and we’ve all experienced the fear and pressure that comes with trying to give exciting and unforgettable presentations. Voiceboard is our contribution to the world to make public speaking more natural, easy and rewarding.

It’s time to break down the barriers and turn presentations into natural conversations between the presenter, the audience and the technology.

Voice and gesture technology is new, it’s the next wave, and it has the potential to develop, expand and turn into so much more!

The aim is to get this technology into your hands, so that you can experience what it feels like to be in complete control when you present. The public speaking sphere is where communication, sharing thoughts, and spreading ideas are paramount and where gesture and voice control technology can make a major impact.

                 
  

Voiceboard is for you. If you make presentations or speeches, teach, train, or pitch, then you understand the true value of making your presentations powerful and inspiring.

It’s a useful tool for that person in your life who is always on the go giving speeches at conferences or workshops.

It’s for just about anyone who needs to make an impression, create a buzz and be memorable by delivering a remarkable presentation.

Kickstarter backers will be the first to get their hands on Voiceboard, PLUS it’s being offered at a lower starting price than it will be once we hit  the market.

With Voiceboard, the presenter is in control of the material. Designed to be natural and intuitive, it took our testers about 60 seconds to become comfortable and confident with voice and gesture recognition. Built-in tips and suggestions have been added to simplify the process even further.

Voiceboard expands on existing tools that you normally use. Import your PowerPoint files, and add new and previously unavailable media to unlock your creative freedom.

Visually support your story, idea or pitch with compelling, visual elements that your audience is familiar and comfortable with.

Direct the flow of your presentation with invisible technology that listens to your voice commands and understands your hand gestures.

Voiceboard enables a new kind of interaction with elements embedded in your slides, surpassing the functionality of a clicker and reducing limitations of traditional presentation tools.

It works with a premium quality wireless microphone, the newest in wearable technology made by Nod and our own custom software to make it all happen.

The programming stage is complete, the design is developed and the product is ready for mass production. We’re proud to say, IT WORKS!

The funds collected here are going straight to Voiceboard’s marketing campaign, including advertising, general expenses which come with packaging, delivery, international licensing and will give us the final push we need to begin mass production.

The core team members of Lionsharp met in Armenia, at Tumo Center for Creative Technologies. Determined to create something new on our own, in February 2013 we established our first product vision, Voiceboard.

From the beginning, the focus has always been on gesture and voice control technology,  experimenting with everything from MS Kinect to Leap Motion to Myo, and then we met the amazing developers of Nod Ring. 

We chose to partner with Nod Labs because of the portability of Nod Ring, guaranteeing the best in user comfort and experience. 

The Voiceboard application is conveniently bundled with the Nod Ring and a professional microphone which can be shipped to you now, so that you can begin making an impression with dynamic presentations.

Our backgrounds vary but we are all enthusiastic, young and individually motivated. We quit jobs, moved countries and fought hard at every stage.

It all started in one of the founders’ living room, sitting around with laptops and the all-important whiteboard, brainstorming and exploring a number of ideas from home automation, to robotics, to 3D filming.

The answer to all obstacles along the way has always been “Challenge Accepted.”

The attitude paid off, as we have become leaders in the up-and-coming technology hub in Armenia, and were able to build a brilliant team of 12 full-time members who came to us from the US, UK, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, and of course Armenia.

We’re not shy. We appreciate our supporters, from conception to development, and would love nothing more than to get to know you and your thoughts. Leave us feedback by either contacting us directly via social media or email or by simply leaving a comment in the comment section below.

Transparency is very important to us so we’ll try to answer all your questions with openness and honesty.

Risks and challenges

Reaching the world from the little-known country of Armenia is a challenge that we’re excited to take on.

The business aspect of this project is probably the most daunting. Our vision has become a reality, and the result is a great product that people can use and really get behind.

Kickstarter gives us a chance to connect to our audience, get feedback, hear opinions, and push us to make Voiceboard even better and available internationally.

This is a way to spread the word and make a buzz. With the funds raised on Kickstarter, the first batch of Voiceboard bundles will be produced and delivered from the USA, and the remaining funds will be aimed at firing up our marketing campaign and building a customer support team.

Thanks to your encouragement and support, voice and gesture controlled technology will get one step closer to becoming the new norm.
