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.

SIDEKICK POV Cap Mount for the SJCamHD Cameras
SIDEKICK POV Cap Mount for the SJCamHD Cameras
It's a Lightweight, Robust Plastic Mount that lets you wear a Full Size GoPro® HERO, BeHD® or SJCamHD® Camera on your Cap, providing the perfect Point of View (POV) angle to record video or shoot pictures. Take your Camera more places, easy to wear, easy to remove and instantly accessible. The Mount fits to the Brim of the Cap and is secured in place using Velcro. No need for uncomfortable and awkward straps or fiddly screws.

SIDEKICK GoPro® Session POV Mount

SIDEKICK POV Cap Mount for GoPro® HERO and HERO5 Session Mounted Using Velcro® to secure mount
It's a Lightweight, Robust Plastic Mount that lets you wear a GoPro® HERO Session Camera on your Cap, providing the perfect Point of View (POV) angle to record video or shoot pictures. Take your Camera more places, easy to wear, easy to remove and instantly accessible. The Mount fits to the Brim of the Cap and is secured in place using Velcro. No need for uncomfortable and awkward straps or fiddly screws. We have been successfully supplying this mount for the last 12 months, this version includes several new features such as Record Light Indicator and Rear Camera Setting Button access.

Why did we make them?  

There are a million mounts out there out there for Action Cameras and none of them met our needs. They were bulky, uncomfortable, flimsy, frumpy, floppy, and frustrating. Designed for occasional use, the current range of mounts didn't offer the stability and comfort we needed to carry and wear cameras day in day out. We knew we could do better.  

SIDEKICK Mounts - why are they so exceptionally dope?
 
SIDEKICK Mounts, in our humble opinion, are the best way to mount your Action Camera to your head to provide Point of View Video or Shoot Photos. It keeps your camera rigidly secure, yet instantly accessible with the click of a button or can be quickly removed and stowed away by ripping it from the Velcro. 

SIDEKICK POV Mount for the Full Size Camera  

Using the SIDEKICK Mount couldn't be simpler, no screws, no annoying head straps. Remove the rear panel from your existing Camera Case and clip it to the SIDEKICK Mount. The Mount then slips over the front of the Brim on any Velcro® based Cap and secure the Mount in place. The Mount can be installed and removed in seconds, provides the perfect Point of View for hands-free video or photographs. The mount is made from Lightweight Robust Plastic, designed to provide a low point of gravity and perfectly balanced, it's comfortable to wear anytime, anywhere.

SIDEKICK POV Mount for the GoPro® HERO and HERO5 Session Camera What's New? The SIDEKICK Mount for the GoPro® Session was our first production mount. Released earlier this year, after months of testing and tweaking we have finally locked in the design. Gen 5.0 adds in some cosmetic changes, new materials, as well as adding a new slide in door configuration and easy access to the camera settings button at the rear of the GoPro® Session without the need to remove the Camera from the Mount.
