Edwin is a sports enthusiastic and he has a GoPro camera. He found it difficult to spend much time outdoor as before since now he has a baby. The little thing brought a lot joy to the house. When he tried to use GoPro to film the enjoyable moments, the GoPro just can’t fit in due to the battery limits. So it turned out the GoPro just lies in the storage box and he had to look online to search for a baby monitoring gadget.
What a waste of money. WHY BUY SEVERAL GADGETS WHEN THE GUTS ARE THE SAME? So he asked for help to design the camera gadget fits more scenarios.
Surely a versatile tripod is necessary so that you can free your hand and enjoy the moment, however it would be really awkward if a black-steel-cold tripod standing in the baby’s room.
We tried hard, and finally we create TellTale packing the latest technology into a minimalist design.

Risks and challenges
While we’re doing a lot of the work ourselves, obviously we have to rely on others (manufacture, shipping) to provide their end. We’re confident that these parts will be no problem, as we’re talking to established companies here. But talking to other people who have run Indiegogo, there is always something that comes up, be it customs, shipping, the manufacturing not being up to scratch or any other of the many things that can delay the process. We will do our best, and hope to deliver on time, and whatever happens we will keep you updated every step along the way.
We will definitely deliver a great product, and hope to do so on time!
Thanks from the whole team 🙂
