Introduction of Ideagear Developing Team
The development team is led by Mr. Kono, an IoT expert who teaches and produces IoT prototypes in Japan. Supporting him is Mr. Suzuki and his colleagues, who engage in hardware startups and run business in Huaqiang North, Shenzhen. This Chinese and Japanese mixed development team is currently developing and mass-producing products mainly focusing on making existing products compatible with IoT.
We have steadily been releasing products since 2018.
IoT Dumbbell (development discontinued → IoT Barbell)
Dumbbell-like IoT devices had already been existing since spring of 2018, being a small device attached to a dumbbell with a sticker to record the number of reps. However, a drawback of this kind of product is that it counts any movement no matter how it was done as a rep.
If someone was going to train, they’d want to count the amount of correct movements individually. However, there weren’t any products that would allow the user to do so which is why we developed a new idea. The photo is the first prototype of it. When we delivered it to our customers, we received the following feedback.
1. 80% of equipment used at the gym are barbells
2. There must be a range of 10 weights from 2kg to 20kg
If we continued developing dumbbells as they currently are, a problem would occur that the metal will interfere with radio waves of the device embedded in the dumbbell. It is also necessary to make 10 types in total along with molds that would lead to expensive development costs.
On the other hand, in the case of use with barbells it turns out that a
single external type is fine. Considering the fact that most users use
barbells, we decided to temporarily stop the development of dumbbells and
started developing barbells. For more information on barbells, please refer
to the IoT barbell section
IoT Pizza Kiln
This was a great success at the engineer networking event.
Anyone can easily cook pizza in 2 minutes by logging on to RaspberryPi using SSH, writing a control program with vim, and compiling and running it. The temperature can go up to 600 degrees Celsius!
You can upload birthday wishes and images via your phone and display them
on the cake. Enjoy celebrating a technological birthday using features
such as image projection through your phone and sound sensing LED candles
allowing them to be blown off.
②Automatic moon tracing camera
It traces the moon automatically.
Though it can automatically trace the movement of the moon, the direction of the camera can be changed manually. You can control it through a computer and also shoot images.
The original prototype of the character printer. Please refer to the mini printer section below for a prototype.
Mini Printer (under development)
By choosing a character on the screen you can print it as stickers. It is under development for miniaturization.
IoT Barbell (prototype development completed)
The IoT barbell was developed in response to the demands of unmanned gyms in Japan.
We support the user's training by having them select the mass of the weight and the motion on a smartphone or tablet and recording the number of times and speed in conjunction with the gym's online system.
Just training muscles doesn’t get you anywhere, for example
1.wanting to go on a diet
2.wanting to increase agility
wanting to be able to hold up heavy objects
For each example as so, there is an optimal way to train. By making barbells compatible with IoT and detecting the speed and angle of the movement, it is possible to compare it to current databases and analyze it. If the current movement isn’t right for the objective of the training, the system can send a notification
IoT Barbell (prototype development completed)
It`s an IoT device used in conjunction with the main unit.
Its possible to know the state of main body from afar
※currently in development and preparation for mass production, so details cannot be disclosed.
