This is what brought them to create Crystal Wash Version 2.0….WHICH YOU CAN CLICK HERE NOW TO SEE LIVE ON KICKSTART.COM By embedding a state-of-the-art pH water sensing chip and a microcontroller with Bluetooth capability inside the current Crystal Wash, they can give users accurate recharge alerts so that they don't have to remember when it is time to put them in the sun. And while they are at it - why not give users several other tools and features right on their smartphone that will help make doing laundry easier & more effective…. With Crystal Wash 2.0 they will be able to give the user recharge alerts, wash cycle tracking stats, wash complete alerts and many additional metrics and tools to help each Crystal Wash user become a term they've coined as a 'LaundryNista.' Their development process has gone through a few prototyping phases. Their biggest issues were figuring out how to engineer a miniaturized version that would allow them to fit all the necessary components inside the current Crystal Wash form factor. And how to create a module to best withstand the harsh environmental factors present inside a laundry machine….like water, shock, and temperature exposure. Currently in the testing phase, their miniaturized prototype v2 is sending back pH data to a mobile device via Bluetooth. Having developed a waterproof and impact resistance enclosure, they are now working on temperature resistance. Their initial testing is showing some really great data metrics, never before available to the home consumer. "It's a fun project and we're all very excited about, but In order to bring the concept design to reality, we need to hire additional engineering help, solidify the design layout and source final manufacturing vendors." The Crystal Wash team has launched their idea on Kickstarter.com in an attempt to gauge market demand and to raise $100,000 in the next 45 days to help bring this great device to market.
