The Gecko Story:
We started off building Gecko almost an year ago. We wanted to build a versatile and extendible Bluetooth Smart device that offers long battery life, with replaceable battery and motion sensor.
We wanted Gecko to be an easy to use and fit into everyone's lifestyle.
We have completed Hardware and Firmware design. We went through two rounds of testing and pilot production with the initial version of the product in a different form factor deployed in a couple of use cases.
Initial version of gecko: We have built the complete ecosystem of Chipset vendors and manufacturing partner to mass produce Gecko.
The basic Gecko application is working on iOS devices and Samsung Galaxy S4. We are currently testing the Gecko App for Android 4.3. We are now working on integrating additional features and connected Gecko cloud.
We need US$ 50,000 to start mass production of this amazing device. Your support is important to us for going through the next steps of tooling and commercial production.
With your support we will also be completing the connected Gecko cloud features and all other amazing features that we are talking about.
Final development schedule.
Gecko creates endless possibilities with its extendibility! We invite the Geeks to push the envelope on what can be accomplished with secure identity (based on BLE ID), proximity and motion. We will open up API for potential developers who can come up with extensions of gecko to other applications.
For those who are hardware geeks, Gecko comes with hardware port that allows the developers to extend gecko with additional hardware features such as adding sensors, or triggering other devices or enabling your existing devices to make them Bluetooth Smart devices.
