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 this project  

Hi, I’m Jared, I’m a Dad (& engineer) who has a son that is working with a great Occupational Therapy group here in Columbus, Ohio. The therapists are fantastic and focused on helping him improve his cognitive, physical, and sensory motor skills to improve his self esteem. Watching them work with my son, I noticed the therapists using several devices to improve his daily living skills. Through close evaluation of their therapeutic & development techniques, the design for Build-A-Spinz became a reality. Unlike many "fidget" devices out now, I wanted to create a product that would not only help with those needing to "fidget" but also nurture imaginiation and creativity. Build-A-Spinz also provides hours of fun for kids (and adults) of all ages!  

Each Build-A-Spinz link/part is laser cut from stainless steel to provide years of quality, creative fun.

Risks and challenges

I'm confident that the product design and engineering is complete and ready for primetime. Prototypes have been produced and tested and the supply chain is ready to go. Costs have been finalized based on fulfilling 600 backers.

While this is my 1st Kickstarter Campaign... I'm not a novice when it comes to successful product launches. I'm a Mechanical Engineer with 15 yrs+ experience and know how to navigate challenges and manage customer expectations.

I look forward to reaching our Kickstarter goal and putting a Build-A-Spinz in the hands of all my generous backers.
