The world's first truly multi touch device for iMac.

Designed for You.

We love iMac, we love technology and we love the ease and functionality of the iPhone and iPad. We have often wondered why the iMac has remained non-touch given the extensive development Apple has done in the touch screen realm. So, we have developed a unique and convenient way to convert a standard iMac into a fully functional multi touch screen computer.

As innovative as it is functional the C2T will transform the way you not only use your iMac but it will enhance the way you use it. Using a glass free design coupled with our unique and patented "beam collation algorithm" technology the C2T has reinvented the iMac and how you will use it in the future.





What We Need & What You Get

We have spent over $250,000 in the development phase of this project and have successfully completed testing on the original 21" iMac. We have completed a production run to prove the technology and the usability of the design.

We now need to move to the next phase of this project, which is tooling for the set up of full production of C2T for all 21" and 27" iMac's. Our investment in R&D and field-testing has been extensive so we know that the design and technology is sound.

By backing this project you will enable us to bring our dream of a world with multi touch iMacs to reality. You will become a part of something great as we change the world of iMac and how you see and use them.

We Need You

Without your help we would need to sell C2T through our existing supply channels. This means it will :

  • Be sold at considerably higher price,
  • At a much later time,
  • With much less features, and
  • No customisation possibilities.


By backing us now, you will become an active member of our development team, and help us realise the full potential of this great product concept.





What's in it for you?

As a backer of this project you will be at the cutting edge of the iMac touch revolution. You will receive your very own C2T from our first full production run.

What do I get?

By being a part of our early bird offer you will receive a minimum of $100 discount on the RRP. We will include a limited edition customised 'The iMac, Reinvented' Touch Pen and a Screen protector for your iMac.

If you are a Designer or Educator you can save up to $1000 on the RRP by supporting us in this critical phase of development.






So, where are we now?

The platform and the industrial design are fully complete and we have the first production samples already in our office. Now we need your help to finish the development, buy tooling and expand our manufacturing capabilities.




Where will your funding go?

We have already invested heavily in the development of this project. Your funding is the critical link to the completion of this project and will be used to realise our dream of the world's first full multi touch device for iMac.

Use of Funds

We have working prototypes and a supply chain that's ready to go. We need your help to take the next step.

We see the following funding milestones: We will use the first $100,000 raised through the campaign to buy tooling and enhance our existing manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China. This will enable us to increase our cost-efficient manufacturing of the frame enclosure, which requires expensive die cast, and mould tooling. Then there are additional moulds required for the internal sections, components, connectors and cabling and all of these parts add up quickly.

We love the idea of letting you design the look. If we reach $250,000 we will give every backer the option to change the colour of their C2T.

Get us to $500,000 and we will give everyone free shipping.*

At $750,000 we will upgrade every backer to an extended 3 year warranty, up from the standard 1 year.*

At the goal of $1,000,000 we will we able to purchase some of the specialized machinery, equipment and hire additional staff required to customize some design of C2T to your personal preference.

Backers must have chosen a perk with a value of $229 or higher.




Your contribution

We have put a lot of effort into this project but like many things in life not everything can be completed by just a few. You and your contribution will enable us to reach our goal. You will not only be a part of a world first but you will be one of the first to be using C2T LIVE!

As we have already proven the technology with our C2T device for the pre 2012, 21" iMac we know the design and concept is sound. All functionality has been tested through numerous software enhancements within the firmware which you will be able to continually update online simply should it ever be required.




Why Trust Convert 2 Touch

Convert 2 Touch has more than 25 years experience with Apple products. We have been there from the start and worked with virtually every model and design Apple have produced. It was a natural progression to move our business into this area as 'we love mac'. Today, it is rare to be able to design something for a product, which can totally reinvent an already amazing product like the iMac, but here we are.




Give the gift of crowdfunding!

The participation in creating C2T is a great gift to give for any occasion. We have many perks at all price levels. All of them have one thing in common: they let you (or your loved one) participate in the greatest innovation since Apple invented the iMac! Here is a quick summary of our coolest perks:

We ship to 220 countries world-wide!

Your new C2T will be shipped via EMS with full online tracking and insurance to your specified postal address.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is C2T?

C2T is a unique device that converts a standard iMac 21" or 27" into a fully functional touch screen computer which allows you to use your iMac as if it were an iPhone or iPad.

How does C2T work?

C2T utilizes infrared technology overlaid across the screen to enable you to control the functions of the iMac by touch. Using a glass free design coupled with our unique and patented "beam collation algorithm" technology the C2T has reinvented the iMac and how you will use it in the future.




How does C2T connect?

C2T connects via USB.

Do I need additional software or drivers?

No. C2T is PNP (Plug & Play) so it requires no additional software or drivers. Simply plug in the USB wait 10 seconds and your iMac will be touch enabled.

Will C2T damage my iMac or leave any marks?

No. C2T will not damage or mark your iMac and is easily applied and or removed. It attaches to your iMac with discretely placed magnets within the frame.

Will my keyboard and mouse still function?

Yes. Once you have connected the C2T to your iMac you will still have the full functionality of your keyboard and mouse. They may however become a little jealous of your new device.

Will C2T work if my iMac is using Windows?

Yes. C2T has been designed to work with either Mac OS or Windows.

What operating systems can be used with C2T?

Mac OS
Windows

Design

C2T is built out of the finest aluminium and poly materials. If we reach critical mass we can customise your C2T to your favorite colour or pattern. The C2T is hand made in our own modest facility Shenzhen, China.

How far are you in the development of C2T?

The platform and the industrial design are fully complete and we have the first production samples already in our office. Now we need your help to finish the development, buy tooling and expand our manufacturing capabilities.

How can you be sure the technology will work?

C2T is already fully complete and is already available for the original 21" iMac. We have spent more than $250,000 developing the design, technology and sample production.

We now need your help with the costs associated with moving forward into the full production of the original 27" and the new 21" & 27" models.

What are the risks?

We do not see any risks at all as we have a proven design and working product already completed. We also hold patents for this design internationally.

However, with all technology there are always risks, in this case we believe we have identified all possibilities for issues and are in a position where the only delay is lack of the available funding to complete the project.

What else can you do to help?

We know it is not always possible to contribute funds, but you can help us considerably if you can forward this link to your network via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit or any other social media outlet.

We thank you so much for your support.
