出门带手机就够了 Noke蓝牙挂锁让你和钥匙说再见

FŪZ Designer近日推出了一款概念产品——Noke。这款蓝牙挂锁在Kickstarter上线当日几个小时后,就获得了660名用户的支持,众筹额高达6.45万美元。

Noke团队表示,人们已经用钥匙开了几个世纪的锁,可是钥匙太容易丢,而且会被偷走,借出去了还必须要收回来,共同使用很不便捷,总之就是麻烦重重。

于是FŪZ Designers便设计了Noke,希望帮助大家摆脱这个困扰。Noke和智能手机让你使用重要物品变得更加简单,而且分享共用起来也更加安全放心。

用户只要下载了iOS或安卓应用,Noke就会自动使用蓝牙4.0搜索并配对可用的智能手机。Noke还能通过命名和添加图片来进行个性化设置。要想解锁Noke,只需按下锁柄。这不仅可以唤醒锁定,还能搜索连接的手机。如果手机在10英尺以内,Noke就会自动解锁,用户无需登陆应用或者把手机从口袋或包包中拿出来。除了保护你的物品,Noke还具备以下特点:

(1) 共享:通过使用应用软件,Noke可以进行即时安全的共享,有永久、单次或习惯设置几个选项。

(2) 历史:在办公环境中,Noke也同样有用武之地。除了可以保证在特别的日子和时间使用,还可以通过历史功能追踪有谁使用过你的Noke以及使用的时间。

(3) 快点解锁:正在申请专利过程中的快点技术让你可以创建习惯使用码。如果你经常不带手机或者手机电量耗尽,通过按压锁柄输入预设的摩斯密码Noke就会即刻解锁,永远无需担心重新设置。

当需要更换电池时,你会通过应用收到通知。换电池只需解锁Noke,然后拧开后盖。这比远程操控简单多了。

“如果电池完全耗尽也不用担心,还有一种简单的方法来打开后盖——用一个小针插入Noke,这样即便是在上锁的情况下也能换电池。”

对于Noke将会何时送达支持者手中,团队补充道,“我们已经花费数月进行开发、测试扭力,并且再次测试了硬件、固件以及Noke应用。现在,我们只需你们助我们最后一臂之力。我们已经选好了制造商,之前我们有过几次合作。此外,Noke的最终元件以及iOS和安卓应用提升仍在继续。机床安装不久也会开始。”

“我们很快就会把Noke的生产样本送出去做试用测试,和磨损度以及防水性的耐力测试。一旦我们能够100%确定,大批量生产就会开始,我们预计将于2015年早些时候将Noke送达您手中。”

Noke在Kickstarter的众筹活动计划将于9月17日结束。

Just a few hours after its crowdfunding debut on Kickstarter, FŪZ Designs‘ Noke has raised over $64,500 from 660 backers. The device is described as the “world’s first” Bluetooth padlock that will keep your possessions easily and safely secured without any worries.

Stating the importance of this new padlock, the Noke team stated, “Keys have been used to open locks for centuries. But keys have the same problems today as they did back then. They are easy to lose, they can be stolen, they are a pain to share, and if you share them, you must get them back. Sharing combinations has its own set of issues.”

“At FŪZ Designs, we thought it was time to put those problems behind us, so we created Noke. By using Noke and your smartphone, you’ll always have easy access to all the important things in your life. In addition, you’ll be able to share access to your possessions easily, safely, and securely.”

Once the user downloads its iOS or Android app, Noke automatically finds and pairs to their Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone. Noke can be personalized by being named and given a photo. To unlock the Noke, simply press the shank. This makes the lock wake and search for the phone that it’s connect to. If the phone is within 10 feet, Noke will instantly unlock so the user can be on your way. There is no need to launch an app or remove their phone from their pocket or purse.

Besides protecting your items, the Noke has the following features:

(1) Sharing: Using the app, Noke allows instant and secure sharing. You can choose permanent, one-time, or custom settings.

(2) History: Noke is great in an office environment. In addition to granting access on specific days and times, you can use the history function to track who is using your Noke and when.

(3) Quick Click Access: The patent-pending Quick-Click technology allows you to create a custom access code. If you are ever without your phone, simply key in those clicks and your Noke will instantly unlock for you. You’ll never worry about being stranded again.

Also sharing details about the Noke’s battery, the team revealed, “When it’s time to replace your Noke’s battery, you will receive a notification through the app. To replace the battery simply unlock Noke and twist off the back cover. It’s easier than replacing the batteries on your remote control.”

“If you let the battery completely drain, we’ve added a simply way to remove the back by inserting a small pin into your Noke allowing you to access the battery even when its locked. This ensures you’ll never have to worry about being stranded with a dead battery.”

In regards to when the Noke will be shipping to its backers, the team added, “We’ve already spent months developing, testing, tweaking, and retesting the hardware, firmware, and app for Noke. Now, we just need your help to make it to the finish line. We’ve already chosen a manufacturer we’ve works with several times in the past. We will continue to improve the final elements of Noke and the iOS and Android apps. Tooling will follow shortly thereafter.”

“We will then send production samples of Noke out for external beta testing and torture testing for strength and water resistance. Once we feel 100% sure we’ve nailed everything, mass production will begin and we expect to deliver Noke to you in early 2015.

Noke is set to close its Kickstarter campaign on September 17th.
