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

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays everyone!!!

The CrumButler was invented one day when we became irritated with having to use our hand after pushing those pesky crumbs, off the stove or microwave, only to have some fall on the floor or clean stove. Now you can clean with both hands! The CrumButler works across a wide range of electric coiled, glass top and even gas stove tops. We know how fun cleaning those glass top stoves can be. The CrumButler is there to help when you need it!

Let's face it. When you look at anything plastic, whether that is your expensive vacuum cleaner or your dollar store spatulas, the injection molding process is expensive. The steel molds that make your favorite product, are CNC machined out of blocks of steel by super fancy expensive machines. These molds range in price depending on the size of the item and how many items can fit inside the mold. Prices for molds range from $3,000 up to $100,000+ No, we didn't accidentally add zeros!

100% of the funds will go directly to having the CrumButler's mold created, with any extra funds going right into the cost of having the first production run happen. This means if we hit our goal, and the mold only cost $7,000 after machining, the remaining $3,000 will go into the purchasing of the rare earth magnets that the CrumButler utilizes along with using those funds to start the first production run.

If any funds are left after the above, the remainder will go back into the cost of filing our Patent. Did you know we currently have our provisional patent and can claim Patent Pending, on the CrumButler? Now you know :)

This will be the logo that replaces the CrumButler you see on the video:

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing issues arise, we know this. We will do everything possible if funded, to have the first run of CrumButlers done and available by April 2018. It will take 6-8 weeks to have the mold created as long as no design issues come up.

The production CrumButlers logo will also look different than in the Kickstarter video, which is a good thing!

We will email everyone with any updates or issues we might run into
