Kickstarter "HELLO" Campaign: New Video Communication Device
Crowdfunding has become a phenomenon over the past five years. It never ceases to amaze me how many innovative products on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo make their goal. I typically receive several emails a week of new crowdfunding campaigns but HELLO stood out from them all plus the campaign is on Kickstarter, my favorite crowdfunding platform. What is HELLO?
HELLO is a Video Communication Device that is an affordable alternative to high-end video conferencing systems launched by Solaborate, HELLO connects to any TV and provides an all-in- one, voice-controlled smart-home or office-device for video conferencing, wireless screen sharing, live broadcasting, security surveillance with motion detection and more.
HELLO is engineered with four smart Microphones, a 4K video sensor and quad-core processor working together to guarantee that every person in the room is seen and heard clearly. HELLO also features both a built-in accelerometer and tilting lens, for an easy setup on any TV and the image captured is of the highest quality. HELLO is built for modern businesses, professionals, freelancers and creators at an affordable. Per the Solaborate team, HELLO cuts out the cost of networked conferencing hardware and IT services to install and maintain it.
Recently HELLO activated its Stretch Goal to $300K to add support for Microsoft Skype, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, and Cisco WebEx. They are currently at $216,721 with 23 days to go to accomplish their goal. Kickstarter backers can get one for $189 or less, depending on the pledge package. All the backers of HELLO will also get unlimited lifetime use of HELLO at no cost. The HELLO will ship to backers 4 months after the successful campaign.
