Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

Moral Code, An Innovative New Application For Those Struggling With Moral Dilemmas Is Here!

One Twelve Productions launched its new app, Moral Code. This groundbreaking iOS app allows adults with any kind of moral dilemma to quickly get the advice and guidance from other people, anonymously and Moral Coders in turn get to share their thoughts and opinions on the issues. “We wanted to create an app that was a lot of fun while at the same time a valuable tool for those in need for answers to their moral dilemmas, big or small”, said Gracen Lew, CEO of One Twelve Productions.

Moral Code is also designed for those who think they know it all and love giving advice. The app features a very user-friendly interface to either pick a dilemma, browse through different categories or type in a key word or phrase, then advice away. “Sometimes, the advice from family or friends is just not enough and that’s when Moral Code comes especially handy including the benefits of collective intelligence”, added Lew. A very simple yet well thought out system. And to step it up a notch, before you participate in a dilemma, the Moral Coders must select from two buttons, Naughty or Nice. Each dillemma will post the latest stats on how many of those who have participated in your dilemma says to be good or go for naughty.

Moral Code has already gotten rave reviews by many who have tried it.

“I didn’t realize how much I love giving advice. I couldn’t stop. And being that it was anonymous, I felt I had the ability to give my full opinion without having to filter, so it felt more complete,honest and whith out a doubt, cathardic.” Moral Coder 1

“I didn’t realize I had so many dilemmas pent up inside me. With Moral Code, I found myself sharing dilemmas that I thought I had already dealt with, but apparently not. I now have a place where I can revisit that dilemma and get more resolution because so many more people get to chime in and give me more insight than I had gotten before.”Moral Coder 2

“OMG. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! So addictive. Just reading the dilemma and the responses alone is totally worth getting. I launch this app while I in line at the store, during my lunch break. I can’t get enough. I’ve told everyone I know about this app and it’s brought up at least once a day by someone and what they came across. My new favorite guilty PLEASURE!” Moral Coder 3

Moral Code is available on iTunes.

Free for the first three entries, then available for purchase for $1.99 and the Moral Code world is yours.
