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

Risks and challenges

This is our first KickStarter project, but we have a great team, with lots of experience in each area key to success. We have already engaged with manufacturing partners in China, and have been testing prototypes for over 6 months, and designing the Tarsier for over a year. We have tested our designs thoroughly, refined them, improved them, and now have a design that is read to go!

That said, there will always be challenges bringing a new product to market. As we transition from prototypes to full production, there will no doubt be areas that we need to fine tune, and potentially re-work to get the right outcome. Bringing a quality product to market is complex, and we recognize that. Integrating mould manufacture, injection moulded parts, electrical component production, assembly, freight and other steps that make up the supply chain is difficult.

If things do come up that will delay the projected timeline, we will be sure to keep you up to date and informed on our progress. We all want to make sure we bring you a quality product, that you will be really happy with and use for years, and won't compromise on that.

Our pricing has been determined in Australian dollars, and will be converted to local currency at the prevailing exchange rate by KickStarter. The prices do not include VAT, GST or other country taxes - these may be imposed by various country authorities for non Australian destinations. Shipping is added when you get to the checkout. All shipping costs are calculated from our distribution center in Brisbane.
