How We Got Here:
Back in the fall, we had an idea of a way to more efficiently and safely clean skyscrapers by using drone technology. Since then we have been off to the races, as we have obtained a provisional patent, developed a functional prototype, incorporated as an LLC in North Carolina, passed the FAA remote pilot license exam for commercial drone operation, and have begun earning revenue.
What We Do:
Currently, we are operating as an all encompassing pressure washing company for houses and we wash vinyl siding, brick, driveways, front stoops, fences, patios, etc. Additionally, we are continuing to further improve upon our prototype to enhance its efficiency and cleaning capabilities. Our prototype allows us to clean tall, hard to reach surfaces that had previously been dangerous to clean by combining the versatility of a flying drone with the cleaning capabilities of a pressure washer..
Where we’re going/what’s to come:
Lucid LLC has three big steps in the near future, with the first one being to add a new feature to our prototype that will allow us to easily clean windows with our drone. Secondly, we are applying to various accelerator programs and funding competitions to allow us to further develop our idea on a larger scale. Lastly, we will be working diligently with our lawyer to file our nonprovisional patent.
