With elaico it will be possible not only to see and talk to one another over the internet, but also to feel and touch one another.

"Adding the beauty of sense to the internet."

 elaico - sight, sound and sense

The tools of communication almost evolve on a daily basis, however the way of communicating over the Internet has barely changed at all in the past 10 years. We will change that! With elaico it will be possible not only to see and talk to one another, but also to feel and touch one another. Falling in love over the Internet is nothing unusual these days. Therefore long distance relationships are more common in our society. But it´s not easy to keep them going, because of the lack of intimacy and sensuality. The missing piece between the needs of today‘s generation and state-of-the-art technology is called elaico. We will close this gap and give people all over the world a tool to feel real emotion over the Internet.

Products

„Black and white, two hearts with one soul, crafted to get lost in beauty and pleasure.“

But enough with all the jabbering, lets get down to the facts. All products will be available for men and women and run wireless to provide more comfort and flexibility.

elaico Community

Of course our sensual network will have all of the necessary standards, like customizable profiles, picture upload, messaging, etc. What makes it special though is the seamlessly implementation of skype, the smart connection between people and devices and the overall easy to use interfaces. 
Basicly the sensual network will be divided into 3 areas. 

Solo – first experience 
a secure area to familiarize with elaico.

Couples – private room 
a safe haven to adore your one and only love. Absolute privacy for couples. 

Friends - meet and play 
a playground for everyone who fancies it.


Connection via Skype

The elaico hardware will be connected to the PC over a Bluetooth connection. The data will be transmitted via skype. The devices can be controlled using a Skype Extra tool enabling the transmission of sight, sound and sense. This tool is synchronised with the elaico community.


Contributors

This idea has equaly fascinated designers, technitions, software specialists, prototype builders and marketing specialists. This enthusiasm has formed a team, which is capable of turning elaico into reality. This is what we got so far:

  • A big developer and manufacturer of circuit boards with more than 40 years of experience. (To control our devices.)
  • Professional consulting services for silicones. (For sensitive fun parts)
  • Specialists in development, precise manufacturing and finishing 
of plastic components for cosmetics, 
medical and food purposes. (For refined surfaces and body proof aplications)
  • Customer Relationship Management. (For precise and descrete support services)
  • A small but very sophisticated industrial design agency with a co-creative mindset. (For unique and beautiful designed products)
  • A modern software development company (For the skype connection and usability)
  • Excellent and careful consultation for accountancy matters and tax advice. (To set up our project properly and within applicable rules and laws.)
  • Business consulting with a focus on the financial aspect. (For a substantial and functional business plan, careful financing and meticulous controlling)
  • A innovative web design and strategic network development company. (To create a sensual media network with perfect usability.)
  • Distinct and progressive Marketing (To optimize marketing and the image of the project)

Goals

Our Goal is to manufacture prototypes for all 4 products for alpha testing. With these prototypes we have the possibility to develop serial production and profound marketing with the help of further investors. Of course we would love to go the whole way with you. But we will cross that bridge, when we come to it.

Risks and Challenges

With a project like elaico the biggest risk is the size of the project itself. The required know how is huge. This is a problem, but it is not a reason to give up. In order to handle this problem we have built a professional team of supporters who are specialized and experienced in the required areas.
