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

Idea

For Kourosh Mohadjeri, 4light founder and Chief Designer, this started when his son came home on shaking legs some four years ago. Driving a motorcycle, his son had been close to being hit by a motorist who did not see him

Kourosh then started development of a motorcycle jacket, combining efficient LED technology with wireless communication to the MC electronics. Ultimately, the jacket was dropped for a more versatile harness, which is now sold by 4light as one of a series of proffessional safety harnesses.

This gave rise to ideas about similar products for other customer groups. In the spring 2017 4light started selling the FireFly backpack, a LED equipped backpack well suited for cyclists - so far 500 of these have been sold.

Initial customer reactions indicated that many needed a bigger backpack, and many wanted it waterproof. So now 4light has the prototype for the FireDry backpack which is twice as big, and waterproof - and with an eyecatching design as well!

As almost all start-ups, 4light has found it difficult to attract enough investment capital. The aim of this project therefore is to secure enough capital for the introduction of the new backpack to the market. Sales start is planned for February 2017.

Risks and challenges

A production decision has been taken by the Board, and commitments from the factory indicates that the first backpacks can be delivered in February. However, experience shows that delays may occur.

If the project turns out to be popular in the Kickstarter community, we may have trouble to deliver all the rewards in time.
