About this project
We want thank you personally for taking the time out of your day to view our product the (Private Eye). We appreciate it and we appreciate your time everyone…
(PRIVATE EYE) is a low tech solution for a high tech problem. There are over 7 billion people on this planet and 3/4’s of them have a product with a camera on it. What is even scarier today is that these devices we have in everyday life regardless if they are a baby monitor, cell phones, laptops, desktops, tablets and even with these new camera watches that we have we can be watched through them. Technology is awesome but also extremely very scary.
My 15 year old daughter was coming out of the shower one day when her camera on her desktop activated and the green light was on. She yelled at the top of her lungs and ran out of her room. I freaked and said what the heck is going on. She said go look at the computer and sure enough the camera was on and someone was watching her and now us and you can hear someone giggling on the other end of the computer. We shut the computer down and I was really angry! I was so angry that this was too easy for someone to do because she was a 15 year old child at the time and as a dad I couldn’t even protect her from that.
My children and I brainstormed the idea of coming up with an idea that could prevent this from others being violated and being victims. (PRIVATE EYE) is for all camera applications not just for the computer and that is how our product the (PRIVATE EYE) was created.
We pitched (PRIVATE EYE) on (SHARK TANK) when they came to Chicago and the producers loved it. The allowed time was 1 min to pitch your idea and I was in there for 4.5 minutes. So that is a good sign (hopefully).
Just recently Mark Zuckerberg was on Instagram and there was a pic of him and on his laptop with a piece of tape covering his camera and the article read that even Mark Zuckerbergis paranoid on someone hacking his camera and veiwing him and his loved ones. So what did my children and I do? We sent Mark Zuckerberg and his spouse Prisilla Chan our product the very next day via certified US mail to their home.
We would love to have you on board and to help us fund this one of a kind product for all camera applications to get (PRIVATE EYE) on to the market and in everyone’s homes or businesses.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time out of your day to view our product. Remember cover your lenses!
Risks and challenges
The biggest problem with any product going to market is the funding. In order to get your product into a big box store you have to have at least $500,000 liquid cash that they want to see in your bank account and that is just for starters.
My kids and I have decided to open up an online store instead so we are in control of our product but we need your funding to make this a reality. With your help we can make (Private Eye) a reality and get this product into every household, government agency and in our school system across the globe but it is going to take money. That is our goal and we hope you can help us fund this amazing invention.
We also need your backing to get these produced in high numbers once we go live with this. In the beginning stages when you have a prototype it cost a lot of money to have your actual product produced and that is the tough part. You get gouged from the beginning and that is why a lot of people give up. I won’t give up because my children and I created this product for the safety of our loved ones and to keep hackers, pedophiles, stalkers and whoever wants to view us on our devices OUT!
Thank you again…
