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.

100% reusable cleaner. A special shape, developed with european industrialists.

   Our basis idea was to answer an everyday life problem that affects everyone. By doing our research, we came across these overwhelming numbers ...

The ecological impact of our project took place. This reinforced us in the idea that we were on the right way. 

To have an idea of cotton swabs' impact on our Planet.

We develop the product and the first prototypes with French manufacturers specialized in medical equipment. The aim is to use the best silicone possible. The one used for teats, baby’s bottles, prosthesis ... 

The user's safety is at the heart of our concerns. Thanks to its shape and length, Eeears will never touch the eardrum.

I will do my best to respect this Timeline. I Have already chosen my partners on this project.

 

Risks and challenges

I have 7 years of experience in industrial production. For Eeears project, I worked with a designer with 12 years experience in product design.

I know that sometimes production & shipping times can change. That's why I already have chosen my partners and discussed of the timeline. I will do everything to respect my aims and my quality demands.

One of the challenges will be to get the perfect shape and great colors.
All the prototypes I made are very positive signs. Then I will do tests with selected customers to improve the project and have real feedbacks.

If there is any trouble about the schedule, I will immediately communicate on Kickstarter and social networks.

Each problem as a solution. Me and the designer will give the best to offer a great daily product.

Thank you for your support.
