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

Beard Icon was born as a step in my reserch in design and digital manufactoring.

The idea was to create a low cost budget jewel that could be changed according to different occasions of use, outfits and moods.

On the occasion of Make/100 I wanted to design a limited edition collection and I made the smiling face beard icon... look at its eyes, they seem the writing OK with K of Kickstarter. 

Risks and challenges

The challenge is to create objects that can be produced by CNC machines and that can be used without any other kind of further manual intervention.
