Kepler’s backup battery allows it to work even during power outage. And with the battery, Kepler is also detachable and can be used to investigate gas leaks away from its base.
Kepler projected started in 2013 by a group of engineers and designers based in Shenzhen, China. The team has diverse background in hardware design and software development. The gas accident event occured on in East Harlem New York this past March added a sense of urgency to Kepler’s development. It is at that time the team decide to launch Kepler on Kickstarter. Kepler team ‘s focus intensified to work on hardware, and software development and their plan is to begin shipment of Kepler in November 2014, with its public release scheduled for January 2015.
