myLifter Helps You Lift Heavy Objects Using iOS & Bluetooth 4.0

myLIFTER is a new device and an iOS app using which anybody can lift heavy objects with ease. myLifter makes uses of Bluetooth 4.0 to communicate with iOS smart devices. It is basically a motorized lifter that eliminates wasted space by enabling you to lift and store things in places that are normally hard to reach. And what is primarily does is lift heavy and awkward items with just the push of a button. Each myLIFTER unit is 3” by 4.5” by 4.5” (slightly larger than an adult fist), and weighs around 1 pound, making it easy for one person to handle and install. smartLIFT allows you to program a preset high and low point for each item to lift and lower to. Once you set your high and low points, pressing the smart lift and smart lower buttons will automatically send your item to the preset places.

The device, developed by a team of researchers in Provo, Utah, is ideal for lifting and storing objects like bicycles, kayaks, and cargo boxes, according to the product description on Kickstarter website. Additionally, users can install multiple myLifters together to raise larger items like a storage platform or Jeep hardtop. They can be synchronised within the app and controlled with a single button press.
Those who do not have compatible smartphones and tablets to support the app can use a remote control instead. This remote will let users pair with dozens of myLifters, name them, and control them.

Users can purchase hooks, straps and mounting hardware for especially heavy objects. Supporters who pledge 75 dollars to its Kickstarter campaign can purchase a single MyLifter for the same amount. Check out the following video that talks about myLifter for Kickstarter -​
