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.

And aren't you tired of ripping your photos or making unsightly holes in them while trying to display them in your home or office?

 

 

One thing that hardly anyone can deny are "magnets on their refrigerator". Whether it’s your own personal souvenir or from a friends' travel, it doesn’t matter we all have them. In practically every house you enter there's a refrigerator full of photos, school notes and calendar events, especially those with children in the home. That fridge is likely a cluttered mess, full of magnets from any and everywhere, quite unattractive.

Forget Fridge Magnets... Introducing ButtonUp™

... a revolutionary, stylish and functional alternative to magnets.

How does ButtonUp™ work?

We’re all about the details, so when we designed ButtonUp™ we wanted to make sure we thought of everything. We invented a good looking product with many uses and included a few extras with it, so you don’t have to go searching for additional supplies to complete a project.

Forget Fridge Magnets get ButtonUp™

Who am I

I am Hal Bevers, CEO of Pegell LLC, started as a company that would build the best Green products that are revolutionary and of high quality. A truthful company that will stand out with great products that make an impact. Our goal is eliminate the need for useless products; instead those that are space efficient and all made in the USA.

ButtonUp ™ is a patent pending product design made with Pegell's vision in mind. The idea for ButtonUp™ came when the kids and I were juggling photos on our refrigerator from a birthday party that kept falling to the floor along with the fridge magnets. This was when we birth the idea of inventing an easier and clutter free fridge product to display and view our photos. Be began saying; Forget Fridge Magnets.
