Idea

BALLDESIGNER is an AI-Design configurator for sports balls.
With the use of software engineering and robot arms the company creates design for custom sports balls.

Current Status

Pre-Seed Status

Market

Sports shops: These are sport retail outlets that sell sports materials, accessories and souvenirs. They can purchase our products for sales in their outlets.

Fan shops: As its name suggests, these are retail outlets of sports outfits (clubs, teams) that specifically serve the fans. They can also purchase our products to create materials and souvenirs customised in the club/team’s logo, emblem, and flag for sales to fan.

Sports governing bodies: These institutions can procure our machines and products to make event-specific sports balls for use in the event or after-event sales.

Retail Outlets: Retail outlets like Walmart or Amazon, can procure our machines to make souvenirs for sales across their online and offline outlets.

Problem or Opportunity

Design software enabled with AI to create 2D/3D
printing.

Maximum personalization of designs for unique
customer experience.

Long-lasting prints of high quality.

Solution (product or service)

We envision this: A customer walks into a local shop to buy a personalised product as a gift or souvenir. He will meet the salesperson in the shop who will present him some selected products (different shapes like a can, bottle or box) to choose from and offer him the option to create his design – customised by patterns and texts.

And when the decision of the design is made, the robot will create the design LIVE with every detail specified - an exciting product at a highly cost-effective price.

The owner of the shop is guaranteed of a good ROI (Return-On-Investment) and
an eyecatcher for his shop with our "service based business model" of an creative robot.

Competitors

Heidelberg ‘Omnifire’: The Omnifire employs a similar technology as the BALLDESIGNER – 4D Inkjet technology and Robotics. But the downside of the product is that it sells for a whooping USD 350,000 which is unaffordable for many sports/fans shops and retail outlets.

Risks

Some popular sports brands can make and sell customized sports balls but they are not innovative enough to develop and sell design software and machines. We have the first-to-market advantage and not in a competitive struggle.
