Lake Elsinore, CA, August 25th 2015 – New startup Kimberlight LLC announced today that it is raising funds through a rewards based crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to finish the development of an app-enabled device for sports fans. The company is set to raise $125,000 on Kickstarter to finish development, obtain tooling and manufacture “The Ultimate Gameday Companion” beginning September 10th to coincide with the start of the Professional Football Regular Season.
Referee Ralph responds to bad officiating and good calls, replays memorable player and coach soundbites, and is packed with interesting sports factoids. Gameday content can be played by pressing one of 4 push buttons or wirelessly by pairing the device to your smartphone. An integrated bluetooth module allows fans to stream gameday content to the device. Team cheers, player chants, responses to iconic rivalries, and material spanning across all major team sports is made available through the Referee Ralph mobile app.
It’s our mission to provide fans with a fun, all-inclusive, fully customizable experience that enhances the interaction between sports fans and the game. To accomplish this we have incoorporated a range of gameday features into the mobile app. Fans can record and track friendly wagers, create their own Gameday pools, trash talk, start a multiplayer sports trivia game, link their fantasy team for live updates, share gameday recipes, and even sell and buy homemade or used team gear via the FanMade marketplace.
The device is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, has a themed power level display on his belt, a built in bottle cap opener under the right foot, a shockproof external housing and an integrated accelerometer allowing fans to pre-set responses when the device is picked up, shaken or moved.
Referee Ralph is the Ultimate Fan engagement tool, designed to enhance the Fans overall Gameday experience. Join us on Kickstarter September 10th and grab your Gameday companion at a 40% backer discount.
