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 this project

Capelli is an on-demand service that connects customers looking for a quality haircut -  at a time and place that suits them - with highly skilled, professional local barbers. Capelli’s location-based technology, available on iPhone and Android, means customers can book a haircut wherever they are - be it at home, work or a hotel.

Join the Kickstarter campaign to bring a mobile barber on demand to your area and in return, we'll make sure you get your first smartphone booked haircut totally free.

The more people sign-up, the quicker you can start booking mobile cuts at the touch of a button near you, so be sure to share this campaign with friends and family

Greg and Co-founder Stuart decided to develop the App after becoming frustrated with the difficulty of booking a quality men’s haircut at times that suited them, with many Barber’s offering walk-in services on a weekend and weekday appointment slots during working hours. The lack of rating systems for Barber’s was also a big factor in the development of Capelli, as Greg explains, 

“Not only is it difficult to find a Barber that offers appointments outside of office-hours but it’s also nearly impossible to find accurate and up-to-date ratings which point you towards the best in your area. Capelli allows users to rate every haircut and as such no matter where customers are in the country, whether they’re a local or simply in the area on business, they can be sure of a quality cut.”

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge we've faced so far is getting the right barbers on board at the right time. We need to have customers ready and waiting to use the app in key areas so that when a barber joins, they can instantly start receiving bookings.

That's where you come in, by pledging your support, you allow us to create the initial buzz in the area, and recruit a barber with customers ready and waiting for their next haircut.
