    " ORBIT " Flying Autonomous Personal Smart Device

    " ORBIT " Flying Autonomous Personal Smart Device
    My name is Thomas King. I live here in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have a Kickstarter project and would like you to take a look at it.I was hoping to get it featured on your program. Here is the link ------> https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/478222000/orbit-flying-hovering-autonomous-smart-device-prot

    With ORBIT You can do everything that a smart phone/tablet does all the while hovering/flying close by. Being voice activated and intuitive you can now just speak commands and ORBIT goes to work. ORBIT can take pictures, Text, Make calls, Take Videos of an event for future viewing. ORBIT can display messages on its L.E.D screen play music and you can watch videos if you like, all the while its hovering in front of you. ORBIT- can be controlled remotely with an app via a cell or just hover waiting for your next command.Sound interesting? Yes it does. I have been working on "ORBIT" for two years now developing relationships with programmers as well as designers to design the outer casing and the internal components that will allow ORBIT to function as the most advanced autonomous smart device ever created. As you can see this is a very technologically advanced device and will be requiring a lot of hard work and innovation to bring it all together. Currently I am going to be working with Movidius in San Mateo, California to develop the software for the operation of the Depth Perception, Spatial Awareness and IR technology. Software is being developed that will allow for a user to speak commands via a Bluetooth device that will allow you to control the direction, and the other functions of ORBIT instead of a handheld RC controller or a touch screen. You will be able to access all of the programs via voice commands, such as " ORBIT Wake Up" or "Launch/Hover", "Dock", "Goto Email", "Record Video", "Place Phone Call", "Play a Song" I am confident that in roughly 18 months we can achieve this goal as all of the technology is there we just have to bring it all together under one roof so to speak. Lets talk a little about the actual device. As for the actual Embodiment of ORBIT I am working with another company based in Laguna Hills, California "Titoma". Titoma has been instrumental in helping with the Injection Molding Process,Tooling as well and the Electronics design. In addition to the cylindrical shape we are also working on a Triangular Embodiment having a L.E.D screen on each side and three high speed rotors in each corner. I will be posting some additional renderings soon.But As you can see this is going to take a lot of capital to finance all the research and development that goes into a device such as this. I believe with hard work,determination and the inspiration of American engineers and scientists we can make this happen. Additionally, I am going to be setting up a newsletter publication for all those who pledge as to keep everyone informed and up to date on the progress being made. As of right now we are in the infancy stages of this new and exciting endeavor.

    "Many years ago I learned an important lesson from My father, He told me his secret to success was to 'Look at each day as a new opportunity to be your very best. Set high goals, be honest, never say no, and work with people who share your passion for doing their best.' I've always remembered that advice and try to live it every day. I am very self motivated, determined and honest. I really love what I do and I try to surround myself with people who share similar passions. I thrive on this type of environment.

    As you can imagine this is a very tech savvy product which requires enormous amounts of software, programming, project designs, prototype makers, manufacturers, marketing specialists and alot of trial and error. The money raised will used to fund all of the aspects of the process with the majority of it being allocated to the development of a prototype.. Once we have the design finalized and all the software and api's functioning properly we will then move into the phase of the project. Marketing and manufacturing.

    In response to your question " How do I think ORBIT could affect or improve the community" My response would be not only would it improve the community but it could improve the whole world! Just as the cellular phone has been adapted so will ORBIT. The applications are to numerous to even start to mention. Its basically a hands free personal assistant. It could be used in many situations....its practically mind-boggling.

    Backing " ORBIT " is not just about getting a product or rewards and it’s certainly not about investing in a company and hoping to profit from its success. It allows customers to forge a deeper relationship with a product such as " ORBIT " also I want people to know just where America stands when it comes to new technologies and ingenuity! #1 Sitting right on top of the world.
