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

Wumbells evolved from a love of the environment and working out in the great outdoors. The beauty of nature is the inspiration for the design of Wumbells. It is simplicity combined with purpose for a product that's more then just a water bottle. 

Training Wumbell style.
Training Wumbell style.

 

Our working prototype is 3d plastic; with your help we can take Wumbells to the final stage of development. This includes completing the mold process to create a beautiful 304 stainless steel working unit and triggering production .

Wumbells are best described as the ultimate combination of exercise and hydration. Made from dual-layer, vacuum-sealed, premium-grade stainless steel for added strength and durability, the Wumbells perform as a highly effective piece of exercise equipment, with the added benefit of providing filtered and optional flavored drinking water. 

Wumbells is a water bottle that simply makes sense! 

Wumbells are reusable and portable. A product that is both considerate to the environment and thoughtful to your mind and body.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, EVERYWHERE YOU GO.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED, EVERYWHERE YOU GO.

 

  

 

 

GET FRUITY: Fruit Infuser, adds flavor. Wumbells have a custom fruit infuser that essentially creates a “cradle” for sliced fruit to sit. Enjoy all the benefits of fresh fruit, herb or tea. Infused water is a simple and healthy way to make tasteless water more appealing without adding any artificial ingredients or extra calories. Wumbells makes water special.

CHANGE THINGS WITH RESISTANCE: Added weights for extra resistance. For a more intense workout, Wumbells have a very unique feature of being able to add additional weights to both ends in a fast easy screw lock design.

LET'S MOVE TOGETHER: Pedometer monitor your steps. When it comes to incorporating a little more movement into daily life, a pedometer can help by providing a shot of motivation. Another great feature of Wumbells is our slim line screw in multi-function pedometer that allows for tracking of your steps and other great functions. 

MAKE YOUR BODY HAPPY: Activated carbon filter water anywhere. From inside Wumbells have a cleverly designed optional activated carbon filter that is perfect for filtering water on the go. PLEASE NOTE: "Design may alter from final design".

BE CREATIVE BE YOU: Bumpers wear and tear protection. On the outside, wrapping the Wumbells are the protective bumpers that serve to protect the Wumbells from any intense tough workouts but also allow for individual design with many patterns and colors to choose from. They can also glow in the dark for those twilight and dawn walks.

Our objective was to design a high quality, durable and practical means of portable hydration – whether that’s water, fruit juice or tea, with the added benefit of weights as an effective piece of resistance equipment. 

Together we wanted to get users outdoors to enjoy fitness and lifestyle as one. What we have come up with is a covetable, custom addition to your workout kit.

It doesn’t get easier than Wumbells. “Just Fill Twist and Go.”

Risks and challenges

Like any project there are always risks and challenges. However here at Wumbells, we have been working on the design for many years and through a rigorous developmental phase we are very comfortable and confident of the products quality and performance. That said some of our potential risks are;

A. Mold Production
Although complete engineering drawings have been completed and the funds allocated for mold production significant, the complexity of the product creates a number of challenges. There are no less than eleven separate molds within the design and each piece detailed in its construction. The risks here to ensure the quality is adhered to and the strength and functionality are maintained throughout the life of the product.

B. Integrated Components
The challenge around integrating some of the Wumbell components such as the screw-in-weights and pedometer have been demanding and very time consuming. For example, trying to develop the pedometer into the lid whilst not encroaching on the inner space of the Wumbell has been very difficult. Also to make the items removable and interchangeable has been ambitious but with updated manufacturing processes we have been able to create the ‘ultra-fine’ screw-in threads that can now be produced into the mold. However, the challenge still remains to function test after production and to ensure all performance specs are adhered to.

C. Manufacturing and Delivery
Although advanced discussions on material selection and mold design has provided us a comfortable position as far as delivery commitments, there is still a possibility that mold production and testing could mean slight delays on product delivery. Rest assured timelines have already been conservatory considered and we will keep everybody up to date on the progress of every aspect.
