This innovation is a sleek, high quality product that serves to protect a vehicle from the daily wear and tear that happens when the driver isn’t around. We are incredibly excited to launch our Kickstarter and potentially bring Bumper Bot to market.
Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) April 09, 2015
Bumper Bot, a Brooklyn-based startup, has announced that its unique bumper saving technology is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter. An industry first, the Bumper Bot product is designed specifically to save drivers from bumps, scrapes, and more serious bumper damage through the use of ultrasonic sensors, super-bright LED lights, and a powerful electronic siren.
Bumper Bot is a sleek, discreet device that is only seen when needed. When a driver approaches a vehicle with Bumper Bot installed, LED lights begin to display a distance reading to that driver. If the driver breaches a user-set “safe distance,” the Bumper Bot’s lights begin to flash in conjunction with a loud electronic siren and will remain on for one minute or until the driver moves away from the vehicle.
The crowdfunding campaign is live on Kickstarter as of April 7 and will run for 35 days through the middle of May. Bumper Bot seeks to raise $40,000 during the length of the campaign, with a goal of beginning manufacturing at the end of June and shipping products to early supporters in mid-August. The first 1000 supporters to contribute to the campaign will receive the Bumper Bot for $89, nearly half off retail price. To preorder a Bumper Bot, visit: http://www.thebumperbot.com.
“While a slew of external bumper protectors exist today, these only serve to protect a vehicle from damage after a collision, however minor it may be, has already occurred. I found that there was a serious gap in the market for electronic-based preventative bumper technology,” said Serge Kannon, inventor and designer of Bumper Bot. “This innovation is a sleek, high quality product that serves to protect a vehicle from the daily wear and tear that happens when the driver isn’t around. We are incredibly excited to launch our Kickstarter and potentially bring Bumper Bot to market.”
The Bumper Bot product includes a metal sensor bar with ultrasonic sensors, a powerful built-in electronic siren, and two super-bright LED display bars that sit inside of the vehicle on each side of the windshield or in the rear window. Bumper Bot is simple enough for most consumers to install on their own without outside assistance.
Bumper Bot, the premier bumper-saving car alarm system, was conceptualized by entrepreneur Serge Kannon in 2003. Recognizing a need in the market for preventative technology, Kannon and his design team set out to create an alarm product that was sleek, effective, and a true industry game changer. Bumper Bot is currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first round of manufacturing for the product. Read more about Bumper Bot at: http://www.thebumperbot.com/BB/.
