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.

My Story: 

I am a designer with over 13 years of experience in product design for electronics, fashion products and various international brands.

In December of 2016, I bought airpods for my wife. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the pods to become lost. So I purchased another pair and when those became lost, I purchased another set.

We quickly realized two challenges with the airpods: putting the pods back into the case after use and having to carry the case around was inconvenient, resulting in lost pods…over and over.

I had a thought that if the airpods could be connected to my cell phone, keeping track of them would be much more convenient and easier for me to safely store.

I designed the PodsLocker in January 2017. During the creative process, I added several elements to the design that incorporated ease-of-use and several functions into one.
