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.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Created by active duty Marines and veterans with one mission in mind: to put an end to the long lines at bars and gain control of your drinking experience. The idea is to order and pay for your drinks with your phone so you don't have to leave a conversation or a good time to stand in line.

The application also provides a wide variety of benefits such as our NEARBY FEATURE where you can locate the closest bar near you that offers BarBack. Even better, our RATING FEATURE allows you to rank beers and bars so you know before you go!

One-stop shop (maps, reviews, menus and order)

When was the last time you kept a receipt from a night out? With the HISTORY FEATURE, you can see where and when you had that great beer.  The FAVORITE FEATURE allows you to save your favorite bars and breweries so they can be a touch away at anytime.

Risks and challenges

Scaling to multiple locations. You want an app to work at every bar you go to. We are raising money to offset the cost needed to offer this service at a minimal cost to bars for the first year, this will create incentives for them to use the service at no risk.

Credit card security. Our system utilizes a state of the art, PCI-Compliant, 128 bit SSL encryption methods that keep your personal information safe and secure. No more forgetting your card at the bar, no more questionable charges -- with BarBack, YOU'RE in control.
