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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

TANDEM® is the only patented pillowcase on the market that houses a memory foam topper and can transform into a neck pillow for travel.
Whether at home, on the go, or at a hotel, TANDEM® gives you the ability to turn any sleep environment into an exceptional sleeping experience by allowing you to turn any conventional pillow into a hybrid pillow that’s right for your specific needs!
The TANDEM® pillowcase employs a patented dual-pocket that houses a special, pressure relieving memory foam pillow topper. Simply insert your own favorite pillow into the main pocket and use them in “tandem” for all-night soothing comfort.
TANDEM®’s unique pillowcase is powered by SHEEX®, an innovative material that provides moisture and temperature wicking properties along with a luxurious, unforgettable feel. It's also washable, so you can eliminate the germs, dirt, and grime of travel, and reuse the pillowcase and neck-case again and again! Learn more about Sheex® at www.sheex.com
TANDEM® provides a healthier sleep environment for the duration of your stay away from home. When you travel, you no longer need to pack your own pillow. Travel lighter with your TANDEM® pillowcase and memory foam topper. When you get to your destination, insert any hotel pillow into TANDEM®’s main pocket and enjoy your sleep, just like at home!
When travel calls, remove the conventional pillow, and roll up your TANDEM® pillowcase with the memory foam topper inside. Once rolled, insert it into TANDEM®’s travel cover, transforming it into a superb neck pillow.
