             Fantastic childhood, crazy juvenility, enchanting adolescence, bright company!A team of creative, talanted friends, which did not let us sit still, made us turn on our imagination. Each one of us tried to demonstrate individuality, it was a latent rivalry, nobody said it, but everyone understood it. One of us had an idea to unite two incompatible objects: a head gear and a display. This idea inspired us to creation of an innovational product. This is when we started to work hard on creation of a snapback, which would later be called CYCLOPS. When we had the first prototype made, we put it on and visit some friends, who said: «Guys, you can suprise the whole world with it!»

So, we are trying!

“Cyclops Cap” is a snapback, equipped with a high quality plastic corps which has a built-in video screen to display any kind of video or photo to emphasize your own personality.

“Cyclops Cap” is not just a fashionable device.

It is a new opportunity for a sports fan to show everyone his own favourite team. Your child can always enjoy his favourite cartoon or comics characters. It is a great chance to surprise your friends or just passersby. What is more, at UFC fight everyone will immediately understand who the winner is.

The fields where “Cyclops Cap” can be used are endless. First, you can place the important information about special offers on the caps of fast food restaurant workers. What is more, it can be a souvenir production designed according to all the countries all over the world.
It is extremely easy to operate this device. You should simply connect your smart phone to Cyclops using Bluetooth or Wi –fi, then you choose your favourite video or photo in the appendix and you are ready to surprise everyone! Thanks to Cyclops you will never remain unnoticed!

Just the way a telephone has stopped being only a gadget to make calls, “Cyclops ” caps have stopped being only hats.

Let’s try to create the future today thanks to “Cyclops” caps!

A unique opportunity to show your individuality as well as to express your desires, interests and the brightest emotions on the “Cyclops” caps’ screen.

Cyclo-1 – is a basic model, made of good quality cotton and superlight but strong plastic. It has all the necessary functions to feel the product best.

High-quality materials: suede, leather, vinyl and numerous design findings characteristic of the Gold Line will not leave you indifferent.Cyclops Carbon Line is bold, blazing and right-on… It’s no secret that carbon fiber is used to manufacture the best sports cars in the world and Formula-1 race cars. Carbon is both light and strong, but in addition it has attractive texture that fans of extreme sports and urban clothing style will love to wear.


Under standing the Cyclops device will be easy for everyone as the novelty of  this device is the idea itself, the idea of merging two different things.

We took the most popular headgear, a usual snapback, and our team of designers and engineers began to work together to create the body. Upon selecting the best design, we have equipped the Cyclops with a video player especially optimized for our tasks and appearance.

Achieving the most optimal weight of our device was also a specific and important criterion for us.Then we isolated the entire device from moisture.

* At the moment, we are constantly experimenting with our device, so Cyclops specifications are subject to change. In this case, we will notify all backers by mail. 

                    

                 

The application is primarily designed to control the cap easily without removing it from the head. It is also used to synchronize the cap with a smart phone or a PC.


The application functionality includes:

  • Full control of the video player on the cap

  • Synchronization between the cap and a PC to transfer data from devices to the cap

  • News from the company (promotions, discounts, events)

  • Cyclops Shop (with gift certificates and an opportunity to order a cap through the application)


  • Mini Text Editor to display text on the cap screen. 

We hope that this will make communication with disabled people much easier, so we call this functionality ‘easy talk’
