dizmo’s Minority Report-style technology reaches half their Kickstarter goal in under a week
On February 4th we proudly pressed the button to launch dizmo on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter with the goal of raising $25K in 30 days to help make dizmo a reality.
We have been overwhelmed by the support and interest from Kickstarter backers and media publications such as, The Inquirer, T3 , Tech Digest, Smart Home Digest, which has helped us raise over half our funding goal in under a week of being live on Kickstarter!
dizmo means that you can interact with content in an intuitive and immediate way, visualizing and controlling wireless devices, sensors and controls, bringing all your technology together within the Smart Home. This interface interaction mimics the technology many have come to love in popular media, from CSI to Iron Man, Minority Report and even as far back as 2001: A Space Odyssey. The creative software behind dizmo allows simulations, charts, images, live websites and videos to all coexist and be moved, rotated and interacted with like physical objects on any digital surface.
Developers can use dizmo as a tool to connect applications and services such as Arduino or Rasberry Pi, while those at home can navigate a digital book of recipes to prepare their favorite dish while following friends on Twitter, keeping an eye on the front door webcam and participating in a video call, all on the same touchscreen. dizmo is easy to use and installable on any standard OS such as Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.
The dizmo space is also the ideal environment for workgroup collaboration, whether at home, in the office or an educational environment. By providing an infinite digital space with a zoomable user interface, dizmo unifies the interaction with your various digital applications as well as allowing you to synchronize, move and share dizmos between various devices, across rooms or locations. You can even build your own dizmos and dock dizmos together, allowing technology to communicate and work together in a truly connected digital world.
Currently we are amongst the top software project on Kickstarter and are looking forward to the next 3 weeks on Kickstarter. You can back dizmo on our Kickstarter page now; the product version of the software will be available from June 2014. dizmo is also available with the 27″ multi-touch display from Planar as a bundle for a limited number of backers.
