Is Keecker the future of home entertainment ?
BY ON OCTOBER 17, 2014
200 companies from around the world will descend upon Dublin for the Web Summit taking place from 4th-6th November. Among them will be the French company Keecker who will be pitching their incredible idea to potential investors as part of the PITCH, which is presented by the Coca-Cola Company.
Who knew that we would come this far in such a short space of time ever since the internet was born? Thanks to the internet our ideas and creativity has no bounds, we can share it with the world, make connections and find the investors to make them a reality. When crowdfunding websites including Kickstarter and Indiegogo were founded, it helped introduce the world to innovative ideas that they may otherwise never knew even existed. Of course crowdfunding can only get a company so far, this is where events such as the Web Summit and SXSW can help them grow by connecting them to the right investors.
Keecker has been making media headlines ever since they made their Kickstarter debut only 3 days ago, in fact they reached their goal of $100,000 within 3 days. What is it about Keecker that has generated so much buzz within the technological market and the general public? It’s simple they managed to create a product that many people will want, they have become a successful start-up company by having the ambition to serve millions and maybe even billions of customers.
Keecker Founder Pierre Lebeau has managed to solve a problem that lots of other people are going to have, but don’t yet realize that they’re going to have. Pierre has created something we all want in our homes; who wouldn’t want to wake up to the Milky Way on their ceiling or be able to cook with a renowned chef anytime or even being able to wake up on the other side of the world? With KEECKER the possibilities of home entertainment is endless.
Pierre Lebeau and his team found a way to bring our tablets, smartphones, games console and other technological gadgets in a bigger format that you can take anywhere with you. Who needs a cookbook when you can watch those how to cook videos on your fridge?
Of course over the years we have seen similar ideas including the projector but this is ingenious in itself by making it wireless, mobile and able to function with all your apps and other home or office technology. In fact you can even use it as a baby monitor or check on your house when you are away on holiday with it’s live remote access.
- Equipped with a 360° audio & video camera and a powerful video projection system that moves up and down at a 90°, KEECKER allows you to project movies & images, listen to music, browse the web, make video calls, play video games and even create home decoration.
- Simply control KEECKER through your smartphone (iOS & Android) via wifi.
The goal of the Kickstarter campaign was to not only bring Keecker to life but to make it affordable and accessible to the public and lastly to make it more compact so it can move with ease within your home or office.
