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.

— From Concept to Reality —

In the beginning, our very first prototype was just a piece of printed circuit board with temperature sensor. After several rounds of edition, it went from rigid to flexible wearable device.

After optimizing the algorithm of sensor and program, design and packaging were our next tasks. We tried different materials, like textile and leather. Silicone was our last and the most suitable choice for our product. It's soft, flexible and safe.

— Timeline —

— The Backstory —  

“It all started when my niece came to this world. In between all the joy that she brought to my family, I also notice that my sister is always on her edge. Being a first time mom, she is always worried about her baby. Whether she is hungry... If she is being dressed warm enough… or if she practiced some Kung Fu in her dream and kicked the blanky off her bed again. Then I started to think how I can help my sister, and millions of parents out there in some small ways. My team and I realized that most of their worries are related to kid's body temperature, which is a very basic vital indicator. Therefore, we developed this safe and easy-to-use MemoKids patch. “ --- Dr. Bob Chen, Founder & CEO

Risks and challenges

We are currently working hard on fine-tuning algorithm, consolidating production plans and coordinating 3rd party vendors, e.g. international logistics. Like every hardware product, there is a risk involved with manufacturing process. The good thing is that we are conveniently located in Hong Kong with excellent logistic service and also close to the manufacturing hub in China. We have worked with our reliable manufacturing partners for a few years. We can quickly communicate with and go to the factories in case of any problems. We will try everything possible to minimize risks and challenges to MemoKids Kickstarter backers. We believe we are well-prepared to tackle this challenge.
