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.

Cool Your Pet™ is the portable, rechargeable air conditioning unit designed for dogs, pets and Humans. It provides cool dry air for 4 hours on a single charge. Cool Your Pet™ is compact at 5.5" x 5.5" x 7" and yet it can air condition a 16 square foot area. No electrical service is required to operate the unit, since it runs on a long life, rechargeable battery pack. It is the most affordable personal air conditioning unit on the market today.

Cool Your Pet™ is ready for production. Prototype testing and evaluation of materials for the housings, mold designs, fan air flow capacities and long life Max-Air-Cool-Pak™ have been completed.

Human Use: If your pet doesn't mind, you can use Cool Your Pet™ to air condition your space or perhaps a child's area. This could include a desk area, workbench, next to your favorite chair, camping, the beach, a kitchen counter or anywhere you want to be more comfortable. Caution: If you think using Cool Your Pet™ might cause a conflict with your 4-legged family member's needs, we suggest ordering 2 units. One for them and one for you!

Energy Efficient-Eco Friendly: Cool Your Pet™ does not require electrical service to operate since it runs on a rechargeable battery pack. And, charging the Cool Your Pet™ battery pack is virtually the same as charging you cell phone. If you are in a car, you have the option of operating the unit and/or charging the batteries utilizing the car’s cigarette lighter plug with a USB port. Cool Your Pet™ is the most Energy Efficient- Eco Friendly portable air conditioning unit specifically designed for your pet and you.

Cool dry air helps your pet cool down faster.
Cool dry air helps your pet cool down faster.

“Dogs and other animals pant to evaporate moisture from their lungs in order to cool their bodies” according to Dr. Barry Kellogg, VMD. “Dry air helps our pets keep their body temperature at a comfortable level while humidified air works against their natural abilities to cool down adequately.” Cool Your Pet™ produces cool, dry air.

Cool Your Pet™ provides cool dry air up to 4 hours, cools a 16 square foot area, weighs 4#, very compact 5.5"x 5.5"x 7", portable, rechargeable and very affordable.

 Pet Safety: We all love our pets and want them safe, especially when they start to heat up and become uncomfortable. According to Veterinarians  "pets heat up much faster than humans and take longer to cool down because they don’t have pours (sweat glands) all over their bodies. This fact can be dangerous to the animal’s safety if they don’t have access to air conditioning. In fact, a 2 degree increase in temperature may not be that significant to humans, but it can have the effect of an 8-10+ degree increase on our pets body temperature.” 

Air Conditioning vs Humidity and pet safety: According to the (AHRI) Air Conditioning Heating Refrigeration Institute-Industry Standards, “air conditioning is the process of removing or reducing heat in an area while not increasing humidity.” For our pet’s safety and comfort, true air conditioning methods are more effective and help pets cool down faster. Other devices that cool the air with water (swamp coolers) can increase the humidity, which works against a pet’s ability to cool down comfortably. 

Cool Your Pet™ weighs 4#, compact 5.5" x 5.5" x 7", 4 hours per charge, air conditions 16 square feet.

Testing and Evaluation: Winner Technologies set out to develop a portable, rechargeable and affordable air conditioning cooling unit that would run for extended periods of time. Materials from various manufacturers were molded, tested and evaluated for form, durability and reliability. All the required components were tested and analyzed for maximum performance, optimum cooling as well as long life usage.  During the 12 months of extensive material and component testing, Cool Your Pet™ prototypes were developed and evaluated. The results are pre-production units that provide comfortable air conditioned, cool dry air for up to 4 hours on a single charge. 

Winner Technologies has invested in all aspects of R &D, final mold designs for production of the housings and the custom gel pack. It has issued commitments to start producing the customized, long lasting Max-Air-Cool-Pak™ (gel pack), rechargeable battery packs and high capacity, long life fans. We will start production once this Kickstarter campaign is underway and our initial goals are met or exceeded.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
We have accomplished the following:
1. Prototype testing completed, component sources identified and manufacturing partners identified.
2. Molds have been designed, tested and are ready to be built.
3. Manufacturing, delivery logistics and fulfillment procedures are established and ready to be implemented.
Disclaimer: With any manufacturing and distribution endeavor there will be issues. However, our team is very experienced in setting realistic goals, solving problems, manufacturing management, making running changes (pivoting), implementing these decisions and keeping the processes moving. Our goal is to produce a quality product, with on time delivery schedules and providing first class customer service.
