Designed expressly for smartphone front-facing cameras – PRISMO empowers you to be fully immersed in the moment.
About this project
WHAT IS PRISMO?
PRISMO is a revolutionary optics attachment designed expressly for smartphone front-facing cameras. This fresh perspective enables capturing photos and videos hands-free or in a subtle and unobtrusive way – which allows you to be unencumbered and fully immersed in the moment. PRISMO has revealed many delightful applications – what will you discover?
HOW DOES PRISMO WORK?
As seen in the Project video above, PRISMO is simple to use:
- Stretch prismo onto your smartphone, and over the front-facing camera
- Open your camera app
- Tap the ‘flip camera’ icon to toggle from rear-facing to front-facing camera
- Start capturing photos or videos – get creative using PRISMO’s fresh perspective!
WHERE WILL THE FUNDING GO?
We’re seeking funding to help with the production tooling and process. Once that is established, funds will be used to build and deliver the product.
Risks and challenges
For the PRISMO campaign, the biggest risk lies in developing the production tooling and process, scaling the product to large volumes. Prototypes were iterated upon, towards the goal of high rate production. Identifying the optimal assembly equipment and partners remains the biggest challenge. We believe there is sufficient funding for achieving this task, resulting in a low risk category. Supply chain has been established for the component parts, validating the units meet high quality and yield. Particular attention was paid to sourcing the optics, as we believe that image quality is paramount to the PRISMO experience.
