It's a very compelling idea, but I dont really like Indiegogo. Everytime I backed a project in there, there were no updates, and no reward! And the website's staff never helped with anything.

I can't help but wonder if this work would as well on my rear windshield too. After all, in a lot of sunny states, having a sunshield in the front and back is a lot more helpful in keeping the interior from getting quite so blisteringly hot!

Nice concept but not sure this is the solution.

It would be great if able to cover all windows.

I live in Florida, so I know baking cars.  Although it's a nice idea, it doesn't help for both the rear and the side windows, which attract just as much heat.  There's no real incentive to pay over $100 for a $20 windshield screen.  Up until there's something that doesn't just protect from the heat but dispel the hot air that gets worse, even with a screen, inside the car, this is a moot point.

Sounds good, but it seems like it's only for the driver and passenger seat (is there no shading for the rear seats)? You might have to get two for the front and rear view (but then what about the sides?) I quite like this (very useful because I hate the heat)!

The fully automatic feature is super cool. The materials look low-grade, though.

“Hot car seats” rank 7 in “30 worst things about summer”— After returning to your car after parking it in the sun all day, you have to spend a few minutes opening the doors and letting the hot air out as your seats cool down—unless you want to get burned. Want a graceful summer experience? Try sunshade robot!

Summer is coming! When it’s a scorcher outside, entering a vehicle that’s been parked directly in the sun for hours is never a pleasant experience. Who wants to be greeted by a sweltering car interior that’s filled with a bunch of mini hazards? We’re talking about things like scalding seatbelt buckles, sizzling leather seats, and a dashboard, steering wheel, and gear shift that are uncomfortably hot to touch.

A windscreen sunshade is one of the oldest and most well-known ways to keep your car cool in the summer.

However, despite the fact that they do help keep a car’s temperature down, the hassle of using them is a big headache for most people, namely, put it in the morning and fold it in the afternoon every day! We simply don't want to do it!

We believe this is not the right way to get through the beautiful summer. With passion for technologies and desire for better life, we set out to create things that never existed before. After 6 years of hard work, hundreds of design-validation cycles, ten thousand hours of road testing, here comes our patented design: Smario D-800, the Sunshade Robot, which uses solar power to keep summer's heat out of your car! 

Just attach to the windscreen, no wiring required!

User safety is our first priority: 

  • It won't block your view. We designed D-800 to be super compact: the width of its aluminum body measures only 25mm, the size of a quarter, so that it doesn't block your view. In fact, you would barely notice its presence while driving.
  • It will NOT accidentally extend while you drive. We enabled multi-sensing technologies on D-800, so that it knows clearly if your car is parked or is on the road. It's guaranteed that D-800 doesn't extend when your car is moving, is stuck in a traffic jam, or has stopped at traffic lights. 
  • We also guarantee the protection of your privacy by design -- there's no image saving/uploading/face recognition of any kind, and everything is local to the device.
  • Absolutely safe under heat, NO battery inside D-800. Li-ion batteries are known for significant explosion/fire risks at high temperature. So we picked ultimate capacitors for energy storage, which doesn't involve any chemical reactions.

The key challenge we are facing is to find the right sunshade robot model for a variatey of cars.  Smario D-800 has 4 length options available, which should cover most car models. But for models with very small windshields (such as BMW Mini), we may not have a compatible configuration at the moment. Please feel free to contact us if you are not certain whether D-800 works with your car's windshield. It's possible that we may need your help to take a few measurements if necessary.
