Votsh Prima – a Votsh reference implementation

Votsh Prima – a Votsh reference implementation

Votsh Prima is the first Votsh hardware and software reference implementation. Others will come after Prima establishes the basics of the Votsh platform. Prima is a software enabled watch.

Prima lives in an age of smart mobile devices (iOS, iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets.) It is important that Votsh delivers an innovative, well designed, and secure platform. The platform consists of an integrated development environment (IDE) for writing Votsh apps, app marketplace for distributing and charging for apps, a simple and low-cost hardware platform using ePaper display, Arduino Mega processor, and rechargeable battery, and a communicator cable to use your computer for connectivity to the marketplace. The Prima hardware comes in a simple round pill-box style case with crystal. Prima comes with customizable designs to use a 3D printer to print the case and band.


Votsh Prima is a pill-box sized cylinder, approximately 36 mm across and 10 mm tall. It includes a round crystal to seal the Prima contents.

Inside the cylinder is a round ePaper display, round circuit board, battery, and Micro USB port for communication and recharging. Votsh Prima drops-in to a 3D printed band/strap.

Votsh intends to sell pre-fabricated Prima cylinders and 3D printing instructions to the Votsh community.
