Tapdo Smart Fingerprint Remote

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-04-06

Get the whole world at your fingertips with the Tapdo Smart Fingerprint Remote. This device uses the uniqueness of your fingerprints to perform actions. Managing everything in the app, you can assign each fingerprint on your hand to a different command. For instance, you can set an alarm with one finger and instantly Tweet with another finger. In addition to these more basic commands, Tapdo is also compatible with Philips Hue, Kodi, Good Music, and much more. Additionally, developers can send HTTP requests or even execute SSH tasks. With Tapdo team serving up upgrades, the smart remote will soon be able to do just about anything. Best of all, you can swap out and change up the commands as you like. Finally, Tapdo isn’t just for the tips of your fingers. It can also recognize every part of your hand from your palm to the base of your fingers.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Calvin Morse,
Thank you for your feedback. Happy to hear that you liked our idea of Tapdo as a standalone device, as we initially planned to implement it. We had lots of opinions like yours that motivated us but many more that showed us Tapdo will not succeed in the market as a non-integrated wearable or button. We’ll still be posting updates on kickstarter once in a while for those who are interested in our progression and future plans. Dear @Cas_per_M,
We are very sorry about your disappointment. Seems like you were a big fan of Tapdo – We were thinking back and forth before we came to our decision and we didn’t want to disappoint any of our backers because we are very grateful for all the support!
We launched on kickstarter being enthusiastic and hoping the community would be excited about our tech. But unfortunatelly we realized that we have to change our orientation in order to make tapdo a lasting success. People showed us that they love the concept of interacting with their fingerprints, but not by having another piece of hardware around their wrist. With those findings in mind, we want to move on and find an advanced way to bring Tapdo to the market.

Strange decision to drop the entire project on such short notice, to get the tech implemented in other products... The best thing about this entire project has been the standalone functionality, enabling users to trigger pretty much anything to their liking using TapDo. It seems Kickstarter was only used to get a sense/feel of the market's interest about the tech. If so, weak move and bad decision. Honestly, I don't need tech implemented in some sort of proprietary hardware/software combo. The flexibility and independence of TapDo was the main attractive factor in the entire project...... :-( Bad example of using Kickstarter if you ask me..

Review from Kickstarter
While integrating this technology into other hardware may be the ultimate route of success for Tapdo, it is the exact opposite reason I am interested in this campaign. Divorcing myself from constant direct interaction with the main hardware (i.e. my mobile device) is what motivates my spending on your tech. Integrating your multi-command fingerprint software into my mobile device would be most welcomed indeed, but that still leaves a hole in the market for doing so remotely. However, making yourselves part of existing wearable technology will certainly open that door again and pique my interest.
How should we best follow your progression going forward?

Hello @Cas_per_M, you are unfortunately right, the project is canceled. The our explanation in the last update! We believe to integrate the tapdo concept into other product and you can use it in the future. Thank your very much for your support! Kind regards Markus

Yes, the button itself communicates with its iOs or Android device via Bluetooth. Bluetooth range depends on several factors, as for example, the number of WiFi networks, the materials the walls are made of, etc. The average range is about 20m.
Alexandre
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, if I understand well, the button can't work alone as all the communications must go to the phone application, using your API, and then only the phone communicates with the button. If this is right, for me this limits a lot the possibilities as the phone as to be in Bluetooth range. I hoped it would use wifi to communicate for global in house use.
Could you clarify this point as if I understood correctly this won't work in my case.

Given that the trend of losing backers I think TapDo is not going to reach it's goal. How are the team going to turn this trend around? Like this project and will give it's support through its campain

Hi all, BLOCKS backer here too! I'm looking forward to combine the two to let the phone rest in my pocket with almost no need to grab it! Thanks!

@Creators, When do you expect to spark the final push in order to let the project succeed? I cant help but notice that the previous few weeks the project became a little stuck on funding. Maybe adding some stretch goals can help? Any way, I am looking forward to TapDo!

@Arief Setiawan Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are confident that we will reach our funding goal soon.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi all, I'd like to see TapDo secure success funding through this. It's first time I see a product that does shortcut to (almost) everything with one simple tap. I don't really know why this campaign hasn't generated more interest that it deserves. Maybe you need to pimp up a little on promotion : )

Review from Kickstarter
any chance you could put a hard plastic loop so one could run a lanyard through it? that along with the clip would greatly improve not losing the device.

@Bartlomiej: As a backer of our porject you should find an option to change your pledge at the top of our Kickstartarter page. There you can easily change it to the 2x97 euro pledge.

Can I put 2x 97 Euro amount instead of 1x 97euro vip pledge?

How durable and how strong is the clip? i have a Bluetooth button thats similar but has only a few functions, and the clip detaches fairly easy, if it werent for kind passersby i would have lost it when the backing came off when i clipped it to my belt.

As a BLOCKS backer, I have been informed that I am eligible for an automatic upgrade to my pledge. How do I let you know I have been upgraded? Thanks!

@Cas_per_M We are happy to hear that you like the clip. New stretch goals are planned and will be made public once 100% are reached :)
Best regards, Bastian

Review from Kickstarter
@Team Tapdo: great to see that the clip will be provided! The question remaining:.... will there be new stretch goals in order to drive pledges?.... :-)

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Josephine, awesome :D ! Now you mentioned that TapDo support over 20 commands. this I assume you can assign one palm to 20 different commands. Can I use both my left and right palm, so that would make ... +/- 40 commands : )

Hi everyone. What are the dimensions of the device? I can't find them anywhere on this page, forgive me if I'm not looking hard enough!

Review from Kickstarter
How about ssh command ? I would like to control or at least execute important scripts to some of my raspberrypi servers with one tap : )
Arief Setiawan
Review from Kickstarter
I'm most interested with HTTP-request and sending command via SSH. Maybe team can produce video/early documentation how are these setup via TapDo ?
Arief Setiawan
Review from Kickstarter
With Kodi, Does Tapdo control via its official remote control/Yatse or via within your app ?
Bastian P.
Review from Kickstarter
@Arief Setiawan: So far, this function is not on our list. But for chromecast there is an Android app, so, as, Josephine mentioned below, you may propose this function on our website and vote for it then :-)
Arief Setiawan
Review from Kickstarter
Well I use Chromecast a lot on my bedroom. Of course I wish with tapdo, I can program it so that the Youtube app can start casting to the TV with one tap ? or maybe you'd need a Tasker to do so ?

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks Laura! So it basically means that Tapdo will be releasing an open source api for a product currently supported by 228 backers, and that Xiaomi is possibly going to decide wether to adapt their app just for 228 people? This seems unlikely to happen at the moment but I cross my fingers :) I'm still confused about the Bluetooth part. Could you please elaborate? May I have my bluetooth device natively paired with a generic single Bluetooth device, without using third party apps, and the Tapdo is going to be able to communicate via its app using Bluetooth at the same time? I thought it was impossible. Is this some kind of patent pending tech? Care to share the ID of the patent?
Arief Setiawan
Review from Kickstarter
Hey guys, first of all. great idea ! congratulations ! I wish you all success Like Alessandro mentioned, I'm not sure how Xiaomi won't be supported in future ? I too have/us Xiaomi phone daily and are using some of their products for their smart-home line. and yes, they are quite famous too
Laura Elbers
Review from Kickstarter
@Alessandro "NeatWolf" Salvati: Hey Alessandro, we provide an open API so Xiaomi would be able to integrate their devices into our App on their own. We for our part unfortunately didn't to integrate them in the near future. Sorry about that!
The good news is that tapdo doesn't require an exclusive use of Bluetooth. You can connect multiple devices at the same time :-) Kind regards, Laura!
