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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Building with Easycube is incredibly fun and easy thanks to an intuitive, magnetic and claw-like interface construction system.

Each cube is 3.91(cu.in), so you can put a table tennis ball in it. After finishing this, it can float on water and we can make a battleship!  

Using Short Rods and Rotating Modules, children can make a walking robot.   

If there are lots of Basic cubes, children can make a Tower Bridge. The deck that can be lifted up and down as if they are staying in London. 

We created a caterpillar with mechanical arm. You can make your favorite engineering vehicle and implement its function. When you are proficient, you can create your own models. You can make at least 8 models with this kit.

Easycube's modules are building blocks like pixel points that safely conduct electricity to enable you to freely assemble houses, trees, cars and so many more. 

The electric power system is built independently into different kinds of cubes. This modular design allows you to add the engine cubes to any position you want. 1 power cube can control 3 engine cubes through a magnetic wire, so you can implement three different movements.

Cute shape with easy assembly is our goal. Easycube contains only about 17 kinds of parts in total, so it is easy to have a sense of achievement for kids to assemble quickly. 

Your LEGO blocks will not be idle anymore. We will provide a Lego plug-in component.  

Use LEGO to Arm your chariot. Make your Lego robot move around with Easycube.

Maybe your children have various creative ideas, but have no ways through which to realize them. There are many kinds of building blocks, but most of them are very monotonous. They have too many parts, so it is hard for little children to play or make something with them. We want to create building blocks that has less parts and a variety of gameplay. Easycube is a tool, a new species. Children can make everything they want. 

Easycube not only stimulates children’s creativity, and their natural curiosity about the world around them, it also assists them in the development of communication.  They will learn about wheels, pulleys, simple machines, energy, forces and more physical concepts while they build 3D models in an entertained and engaged way. 

The mould of Easycube is very precise because of the staged claw interface. We've been looking for at least 10 factories, but only 1 can make it. We made thousands of tests to ensure the feel of assembling is smooth. We tested the model using wired remote control in the beginning. All the materials are environmentally friendly. Now, we have finally solved all the technical problems.

Easycube was founded by Yuchen Tao and Jaap Zhang after they got their Master’s degree in Biology. At the time when the idea appeared, Tao was a part-time teacher. He saw some students playing Minecraft and Bad piggies after class. These students were inextricably bogged down in these games. So, he wanted to create an electronic toy cube that can be assembled by children just like the car or ship in these games. At the same time, he met his alumnus Jaap, who was a sales manager in a Biotech LLC. One year later, they created Easycube.

 


Risks and challenges

We are a well-funded and fast-growing intelligent technology company. We are committed to ensuring that our backers receive their Easycube on time. We strive to keep backers up-to-date about production and fulfillment. If there are any unexpected delays, we will notify backers and provide an estimated delivery date.
