THUNDERCLAP & 2018!
First of all, we would like to wish you a Happy New Year! On the 5th of January our Kickstarter campaign went live. With your help and this Thunderclap campaign we hope to share our message across the world. Please support us on Thunderclap and/or Kickstarter and help us make the world a safer place! ;)
WHAT IS CAMHATCH?
The CamHatch is a 100% unhackable hardware solution that is ultra-thin, small, secure and easy to use, which ensures you that no one is spying on you through your webcam.
CamHatch at its core is an organization that aims to inform everyone about the dangers our 21st century digital age brings. People know to look down both sides of the street before they cross, to lock their door before they go out and to not dry your cat in their microwave. Yet, a staggering number of people have no clue what dangers technology brings.
The first issue we decided to tackle was webcam security, as hacks became more prevalent and victims reactions to such hacks were often devastating. When caught in a chain of repeated blackmails, victims are forced to pay or to have their social status destroyed by the hacker releasing the victims' sensitive content, sometimes resulting in suicide.
This was unacceptable, especially since the solution was so simple. We set out to create the best and one of the first webcam covers out there. It was important to us that the CamHatch was elegant, thin and unobtrusive, so we could provide the perfect answer to those more concerned about the look of device than the potential of risking their own privacy.
However, we ran into one last obstacle: price. We found that our production costs had to decrease drastically if we wanted to make the CamHatch cheap enough to cater to all of those concerned about their online safety.
That is why we arrived at Kickstarter. We believe that this community can help us raise enough funds to permanently decrease the price of the CamHatch and thus make the CamHatch available to more and more people worldwide, all the while creating awareness for the very real and serious problem of webcam security.
CAMHATCH WILL REVOLUTIONIZE CYBERSECURITY PRODUCTS
We have been developing CamHatch since January of 2014 and were among one of the first to realize the severity of this problem. We immediately took action. After constructing our MVP we started to test our product on the market to generate feedback from our first paying customers. During 2016 we launched a pilot for one week, selling 500 pieces and generating as much customer feedback as possible. With our goal in mind to create the best webcam cover possible for anyone who wants to take back control over their privacy! All profits generated during this week were donated to charity (KiKa).
After this period, we further developed the CamHatch by testing the market with our product on a regular basis. Throughout this journey we won the RSM Entrepreneurship Challenge at the prestigious Rotterdam School of Management Erasmus University, and we reached the finals of the Rotterdamse Startersprijs as one of the most promising Rotterdam based start-ups.
Now our product is finished, fully tested and its value proposition is validated. We created world’s most stylish webcam cover that sticks for a ridiculously long amount of time. So far, it sticks for 3,5 years and counting, while using it on a regular basis. However, if you wish to remove the CamHatch no traces will be left behind. It’s thinner than a bankcard and thereby thinner than almost all other webcam covers being sold currently.
World's most elegant and reliable webcam cover. Practical, thin and affordable! Now available on Kickstarter!
