What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 

 

Smartphones are often damaged due to dropping. To address this problem, we offer a built-in detachable phone case in the sleeve pocket for the outerwear jackets and bombers, or a strap on the sleeve and a clip-on special phone case for light jackets in GearUp line.

  • built-in detachable phone case on sleeve
  • a strap on sleeve and a clip-on special phone case
This feature not only prevents accidental dropping of the phone but also enables people to operate phones with single hand, which is a big convenience in many scenarios.  

Following this thinking, we further add a built-in Bluetooth receiver and a pair retractable earbuds to make operating phones even more convenient.

  • built-in Bluetooth receiver and retractable earbuds 

 Now you can quickly pick-up your call without fumbling for phones or earphones.

We have a built-in activity tracker in GearUp jackets that monitors and tracks fitness-related metrics and connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

  • built-in activity tracker

GearUp jackets also have a built-in flashing armband to make your walking or biking at night safer.

  • built-in flashing armband

 

With these electronic devices attached to your body for an extended period of time, some of you may be concerned about the electromagnetic radiation coming out of them. We provide an optional EMF protection layer to protect your body from the electromagnetic radiation. We also purposely place these devices far away from your head to reduce the radiation to your head.

  • EMF protection layer

 

By the way, we have a RFID blocking pocket where you can keep your credit cards safely from RFID skimming.

  • ANTI-RFID Pocket

Given that there are so many electronic devices in your jackets, charging them could be a little hassle. Don’t worry, GearUp jackets have a built-in charging network that gives you the option to charge all of the device from a single point.

  • built-in charging network with wireless charging capability

 

 

 

 

 

The built-in electronic devices and the EMF protection layers are easy to detach from the jackets for cleaning and maintenance.

  • Waterproof Breathable Performance fabric as the shell fabric of Men's and Women's 3-in-1 Outdoor Jackets (Waterproofness >15,000mm   Breathability > 10,000GM/M²/24HR), Light Hoodies and Men's Softshell (Waterproofness >10,000mm Breathability > 5,000GM/M²/24HR)

Risks and challenges

We have been preparing for this campaign since 2015. We have done extensive work to minimized any foreseeable risks; Co-founder Sonny has more than 20 years experience in the apparel industry with hands-on knowledge on almost all aspects of the business, from designing and sourcing, to manufacturing, shipping, and merchandising. He also has experience sourcing consumer electronic products for many major US stores. He has a network of suppliers, manufacturers and logistics companies that are eager to participate in this project. You should have confidence in our capability to deliver. But we may need to warn you that the final products might be somewhat different than the prototypes you see in the provided media; the design, material and workmanship of the finished products will be better than those of the prototypes.

For the unpredictable, we promise that we will work hard to minimize any negative impacts on you.

We hope that you can lend a helping hand, and invest in our project!
