Thinnest, Lightest IPhone & Solar Charger Ever – It Will Even Improve The Sound

jus

iVue

17 Spring Street

Sydney, Australia

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact Shane Johnston, +61 2 9659 3361 or email: shane@jus.life

NEVER PLUG OR WORRY ABOUT CHARGING YOUR PHONE AGAIN!
Ground Breaking Integrated IPhone solar charger

Sydney, Australia:

The developers at iVue in Sydney, Australia are always looking for ways to revolutionize the way people interact with their devices. Their latest idea was sparked by the challenges faced by iPhone users needing to stay in the digital information loop without always being tethered to an electrical outlet.

Phone calls, Apps, videos, GPS Navigation, photos & games, all impact the phone’s battery life.

Let’s Face it, the battery life on the iPhone -every phone- sucks!

And sadly there’s little sign of radical, transformative improvement coming any time soon!

JUS is a ground breaking A hybrid, all-in-one solar-powered rechargeable battery pack and slim case, that fits iPhone 6, 6 Plus 6S & 6S Plus like skin and can triple the talk time by drawing power from the light around you, including both outdoor and indoor lighting.

While the idea of a solar-powered backup charge is not new, the way that iVue approached it certainly is, designing a charger from the phone out instead of from the power source in. Instead of designing a bulky power pack that plugs into the iPhone, they designed an iPhone case that fits like a no-slip second skin with a solar-powered backup battery built-in. Far from adding to the phone accessories you have to carry, JUS becomes part of your iPhone, and a source of comfort because as long as you have light, you will have power.

To recharge your phone using JUS, simply press and hold the on/off button on the back of the case for 2 seconds to switch over to auxiliary power. The case will continue to charge itself even while it’s charging your phone. Four integrated LED status indicators sit just above the power button to show how much standby charge is available. A quick press of the case on/off button will show the level of remaining standby power.

On a full charge, even without access to any light at all, JUS can recharge your iPhone 6 from 0 to 100% twice. In short, it triples the talk time of your iPhone! That’s 42 hours of talk time! And if you have access to outdoor or indoor light-any light–even on cloudy days, JUS will never run out of power. EVER!

JUS has been specifically designed not to detract from the appearance and functionality of your iPhone. Features like the camera, headphone mini-jack, and controls are still just as accessible as before. However, they improved the sound quality using the acoustics of the case. Most iPhone users know that the speaker is on the bottom edge of the phone to the right of the charging port, and not on the front of the phone. JUS acts as an advanced sound chamber that channels the sound to the front of the phone where it really counts.

Another pioneering aspect of JUS is its flexibility in how it recharges itself: it is not just limited to solar power but comes with an attractive frictionless charging dock and a Micro-USB port, which doubles for synching your iPhone to your computer as well as charging your phone and JUS, so you never have to directly plug anything into your iPhone again.

If you have access to outdoor or indoor light-any light–even on cloudy days, you would never ever run out of power on your iPhone ever!

Here’s how JUS works: A 4000mAh, 14.88Wh Lithium-Polymer battery will always charge from sunlight and indoor lighting if its capacity falls below 99%, ensuring that it is ready to fully charge your iPhone when needed. It has a protective smart circuit to prevent a short circuit or overcharging.

The wireless-frictionless charging dock means that you never need to plug your iPhone into anything again! With Micro-USB port both charging and synching are supported by the JUS case and when JUS is on the frictionless dock or plugged into the Micro-USB, JUS uses a special pass-thru charging system that means it’ll actually charge the iPhone’s battery first. This is more efficient long-term, and should cut down on the ageing of JUS’s own battery unit.

And just how long does all this take?

iVue plans to develop JUS for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and introduce additional colours and other finish options.

JUS is truly a remarkable advance in green approaches to powering the entire iPhone 6 family including the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

Technology Meets the Real Estate World in DisruptCRE

technology-meets-real-estate-world

BOSTON — The Soho Loft Media Group sponsored the meeting of disruptive ideas about the real estate industry last 16 October 2014 in Boston.

The DisruptCE is designed to create an environment where people with disruptive ideas get to meet investors and developers to create potential partnerships. The bigwigs of the real estate industry converged from 1pm to 7pm at the District Hall in 75 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA.

David Drake, Founder and Chairman of Victoria Global, LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group, says, “It is through these events that real estate entrepreneurs and investors will understand the dynamic changes the real estate world is witnessing today. Real estate crowdfunding is all about technology meeting the needs of the real estate industry.”

Traditionally, real estate is a brick and mortar place, quite literally, with very little intervention of technology. DisruptCRE aimed to bridge the gap between developers and investors and unfold the long-term benefits they will reap from it. Nearly $743 million (http://www.thenewsfunnel.com/blog/real-estate-tech-startups-growing-leaps-and bounds#sthash.b0jTn1H0.dpbs) has been invested into the field of commercial real estate technology.

Jeffrey M. Finn, President and CEO of RealNEx was the keynote speaker. There were four disruptive panels, with the following moderators:

Panel 1 Moderator on Meet the Disruptors: Innovators Driving Change

Duke Long, Owner & Broker of The Duke Long Agency

Panel 2 Moderator on The Science of Building Systems

Grey Lee, Executive Director of USGBC MA

Panel 3 Moderator on Inside the Box: Re-Thinking Space

Phil Hammond, Director of Graduate Program at Wentworth Institute of Technology

Panel 4 Moderator on Crowdfunding: A tectonic shift in Real Investing

Kevin Guy, CEO of Real Liquidity

Stas Gayshan, Co-Founder and CEO of CIC Bosto

Suzanne Robinson Director of Sustainability of Vanderweil Engineers

Other event sponsors include USGBC MA, CoreNet NE, Wentworth Institute of Technology, MassChallenge, PivotDesk, Real Liquidity and Roomzilla.

Bruce Lipnick, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Asset Alliance and CEO of Crowd Alliance, says, “Crowdfunding help people realize the true potential of the real estate industry today. Modern technological advancements have changed the access to funding sources. Only those who can adapt to change will survive.”

Scott Purcell, CEO of FundAmerica states, “Crowdfunding meets the needs of the real estate sector by tapping online syndication of capital that connects entrepreneurs with investors. Entrepreneurs and developers in the real estate industry can stretch their capabilities and extend their reach by making the most of the opportunities offered by online platforms and service providers like FundAmerica.”

Omninox Launches Kickstarter Campaign For A Better Classroom Experience

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (OCTOBER 15, 2015)

Jake Yap

Omninox Corp.

(352) 871-7233

jyap@omninox.org

Omninox Launches Kickstarter Campaign for a Better Classroom Experience

The Kickstarter campaign will fund software that reduces time teachers spend creating and grading assignments by as much as 85% 

The narrative on American teachers today looks grim because they are overworked and underappreciated. So, Omninox is creating an online platform where teachers can save countless hours through automatically generated and graded assignments. Three young entrepreneurs from the University of Florida–Yatit Thakker, Drew Vincent, and Jake Yap–thought of the idea after talking to dozens of teachers. They implemented it using their engineering backgrounds and the help of licensed content from a billion dollar education publisher.

Coming off from their preliminary platform release back in March, Omninox was able to collect data and feedback from over 2000 teachers and students who used the platform. From that, they were able to build out a more robust prototype. However, they have much bigger plans for the platform looking forward. They want to add a more collaborative element to the platform that can get teachers from all over the world creating and sharing content for various subjects with each other. “A global community. That’s the ultimate vision. A network of teachers helping each other to create a more engaging classroom experience,” says Yatit Thakker, Co-Founder and CEO of Omninox. “After speaking with teachers back in June, we found that there was a desire for ‘rigorous questions’,” says Omninox Co-Founder and COO Jake Yap. “This phrase is thrown around a lot in education, but we want to build a place where teachers can find quality questions created and voted on by other teachers.” In order to accomplish this goal, the Omninox team has taken their idea to Kickstarter in an attempt to raise $6,000 in one month.

Omninox’s Kickstarter page has more information about their journey and vision. There, one can contribute as little as $5 to support the creation of a better classroom experience for both teachers and students.

About Omninox: Omninox is one of many education startups out there, but unlike other companies, Omninox’s unique focus is on creating a simpler and more engaging classroom experience. Visit their website at https://omninox.org or follow them on twitter at @omninoxco

Check Out The First Champagne Club Project On Kickstarter, Support Now!

Brimoncourt, the most joyful Champagne house in a well-established industry is officially conquering the US market! 

The Brimoncourt Society, a membership club for American champagne lovers, is live.

Becoming a member turns you into a Brimoncourt Ambassador for life with special and exclusive privileges.

On Thursday October 15, Brimoncourt is launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise support for their ambitious project: building a strong community in the United States and welcoming 2,000 members into the Club.

THE FIRST CHAMPAGNE CLUB HAS ARRIVED: THE BRIMONCOURT SOCIETY

With The Brimoncourt Society, Brimoncourt wants to break down the snobbery surrounding the wine industry and let a group of fun loving early adopters enjoy a unique wine experience by introducing a new champagne deal.

If you go to any retail store you would pay $50 or $60 for a premium champagne; as a member you pay half of the retail price, a privilege that lasts for a lifetime!

To achieve this goal, Brimoncourt is ushering in a new approach, using a direct-to-consumer business model and e-commerce experience to keep prices low and create high engagement with its Society members.

Thanks to this innovative and win-win model, Brimoncourt cuts the different trade margins and offers a refreshing new experience.

BRIMONCOURT KICKS OUT THE CONVENTIONS

The Kickstartercampaign starts on October 15th and runs for 4 weeks. The sky is the limit, to reach their ambitious and amazing goals, this campaign comes with multiple benefits and rewards, from a stunning polo shirt to a trip to France including 2 Business flights to Paris and 2 nights in a 5 star hotel in Reims.

 

WHY KICKSTARTER

Brimoncourt has decided to use crowdfunding to launch the Brimoncourt Society so that they can share the Brimoncourt experience with more people in the United States.

With Kickstarter, they want to achieve the following goals:

  • Accelerate our growth in the US by investing on resources in the field
  • Increase our visibility on and offline 
  • Buy state alcohol licenses to be able to ship to more states
  • Organization of a backers gathering event in NY
  • Create amazing rewards for the members
  • Create a special Cuvee in 2016, to celebrate the 240th birthday of the Declaration of Independence (limited edition)
  • Restore some part of the Brimoncourt Mansion in Reims that are unrestored since WWI

ABOUT BRIMONCOURT

Taken over in 2008 by ambitious ex-lawyer and former art dealer, Alexandre Cornot, Brimoncourt is the freshest champagne house, cultivating a tension between modernity and tradition. Founded to pay tribute to the original spirit of champagne, Brimoncourt refers directly to the French Régence Era, when champagne first became fashionable. Back then, around 1715, champagne was a wine to celebrate the everyday, a symbol of lightness, sharing, elegance and independence. Brimoncourt claims the freedom to be light!

Since January 2014, Champagne Brimoncourt is distributed in France by Baron Philippe de Rothschild France Distribution and by other prestigious partners in Europe. Brimoncourt has the ambition and the potential to become a significant player on the US market.

8 secrets of crowdfunding success

Being successful in crowdfunding is, in the end, a matter of having the correct timing and mindset to grow your audience and entice people to donate to your campaign.

Yes, donate is often the correct term. Afterall, you are doing, most of the time, a bad proposition: people are supposed to give money to your project, which can be delivered late, will be delivered way after they gave you the money at best, without any reassurance on quality and, even worse, probably overpriced. People have to be very kind to give you money under those terms, right?

Be credible

What you got to do, as an entrepreneur, is addressing those issues. You have to make sure your crowdfunding campaign does not look like a pledging for an altruistic donation in the first place.

Build credibility. Show as much as you can, be as transparent as possible, in order to make people believe your project. Show them you can deliver a good quality product on the scheduled time at a reasonable price.

Record a good video

Regarding learning style and the way they pay attention, some people are kinesthetic, others are auditory and many are visual. You can grab the attention of all those people if you record a good video, with a good, relaxing background music, a strong voice and good images (don’t forget to look straight at the camera).

In fact, video is the perfect tool to grab the attention of your potential customers. So much that it is required if you want to run a campaign on Kickstarter or Indiegogo.

Calculate costs and margins

Don’t just launch your campaign based on guesses and personal opinions. Do an elaborate study of your potential product before you even start one.

You should correctly assess costs involved, minimum amounts raised to break even, amount of time you will have to dedicate to the project, number of people who will be involved, set up proper deals with potential suppliers and so on.

It’s not like opening a new company and doing an elaborate business plan, but a certain amount of planning is surely needed.

Be realistic

It’s tempting to think that your project will be the next big hit, but keep your feet firmly on the ground while you eye for the stars.

Smaller goal values work much better than high ones. Several successful crowdfunders have discovered that empirically (that’s the story of Coolest Cooler, for example). Make sure your goal covers your costs but don’t overindulge yourself thinking you are going to beat it by tens of times.

Two or three-fold is not rare, but be prepared to take a failure and work over it.

The same goes for your pricing. Don’t force it too high when compared to alternatives in the market. Your prices should be as low as possible while your product is innovative enough to grab attention.

Start your social media campaign before launching your crowdfunding one

Set up your website, build media relationships, build your followers base. Do that months before launching you crowdfunding campaign.

Remember, your campaign will run for 60 days, at most. If you don’t have an audience, you will probably fail if you try to build it while you are pitching for investments.

Building your followers base must be a step before the crowdfunding campaign itself.

Time your campaign well

Remember to pitch your audience when they will most probably be interested. If you are launching a game, the campaign should be run on holidays and before Christmas. If you are launching a gadget for water sports, Summer will be the best time.

In order to discover the best times to promote your campaign, a good tip is taking a look at Google Trends for the keywords related to your product. A look at the graphs will tell you when people will be more inclined to search for something related to your offer and, thus, more inclined to make a deal with you.

The example is, again, Coolest Cooler. The first time the campaign was run, the goal was set too high and the timing was bad. In the Summer and with a more reasonable goal, the campaign managed to raise more than $12 million.

Find the right platform to run your campaign

Kickstarter and Indiegogo are almost synonymous to crowdfunding, but they are not the only players in town. Especially if you want to run an equity crowdfunding campaign, which is not possible on these platforms yet.

Sometimes it’s better to choose a niche focused platform, one that already has a follower base that is related to your industry and with a proven track record of success in the niche.

Plus, it can be considerably easier to be featured and promoted in the platform’s established channels as well. Your audience may not be as big as that of Indiegogo and Kickstarter (though you have to do your own marketing in both of them as well), but it can be more cost-effective.

Have a good story

We finish this guide by giving you a last tip, which is closely related to our first tip, on building credibility: every successful enterprise, in any market, has a good story to back it up. Think about KFC or Donald Trump. Telling a good story, with a sound background and facts to back it up is the difference between success and failure.

So pay close attention to whatever you write and whatever you say. Communicate properly in all occasions. Be it in your project description, in your video, in the updates you give about your project, etc.

Meet Qball: An Innovative Educator’s Microphone that’s Helping Underfunded Schools

qball-home6

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 14, 2015 — Peeq, the maker of Qball, a foam rubber ball with a built-in wireless microphone, is ready to give back to communities across the US. Having already exceeded its goal of $30,000 on their Indiegogo campaign, Peeq wants to help low income schools due to an outpouring of support and interest in the product from teachers. Peeq founders see a need to get Qballs into more classrooms across the country. Some of the comments from educators on the Qball:

This is an amazing idea. It gets kids involved in what is going on in the classroom. Makes learning fun and exciting. I can see this used in all educational arenas from pre-k to colleges.

I need this in my AP Lit and Lang classes!!!!

What a fun way to encourage speaking and listening!

The Peeq team is already set to donate to low income schools through various rewards, but decided it wants to do more. The team has added a new option to campaign backers: they can now gift a Qball to a classroom or teacher of their choice. “The Perfect Gift” reward will include a Qball (mic included), receiver, and bluetooth speaker, all of which can turn an ordinary classroom into a more interactive experience. Donors will have the option to include a personalized card or to remain anonymous.
The Qball package includes:

  • A wireless receiver with a 3.5mm cable that plugs into anything from desktop computers to stereos
  • A battery pack that lasts eight hours
  • A sensor that automatically mutes when the ball is in motion
  • A removable microphone pack that can be worn around the neck by presenters

Qball has also set a new funding goal that will trigger a donation of 10 Qballs to low-income schools. The team is hopeful that this new goal will help get the Qball into the classrooms of those who need it most.

The campaign can also be found: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/qball-microphone-you-can-throw-drop-or-roll/x/12001181#/

Summary:
The maker of Qball, a wireless mic embedded in a ball, is seeking to help underfunded schools. The revolutionary system has been proven to increase student engagement and is sought out by educators. Goals have been set to bring Qballs to the communities and schools that need them.

Wilcox Announces Quarter 3 Fundraising Results

ORLANDO, FL – Todd Wilcox, candidate for the United States Senate, Orlando-based entrepreneur, and combat and CIA veteran, today released the results of a successful third quarter fundraising effort, his first in the race.

I’ve got 26 years of real world experience and real leadership. I have served on the front lines in the Global War on Terror, I’ve built successful businesses, put people to work and I’ve made payroll.”

Wilcox’s contributions come from a diverse group of donors that include business leaders and entrepreneurs, physicians, professors, retirees, bankers and students. Many of his donors are first-time political contributors.

Quarter 3 Fundraising

Total: $785,405.80
Contributions: $258,405.80
