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

Check 6 Adventures

These cardboard cockpits are an excellent source of fun and adventure. The complete cockpit is ideal for the 3-9 year olds. All ages can enjoy the nose and controller option. 

The cardboard is digitally printed to maintain bright colors and detail. The realistic look lets kids really imagine they are in a classic fighter, a racer or a spacecraft and engaged in a important mission. Imagination is so important to the development of young minds and in promoting creativity. 

The cardboard folds together much like a banker box to provide strength and avoid contact of sharp raw edges. These cockpits are easy to assemble, sturdy and safe - which gets us to the important part - Playing!

Audio Mission for Download

Download an Audio Mission
Download an Audio Mission

The audio missions are recorded soundtracks with great storylines, character dialogue and sound effects to create a fun adventure. 

"The communication towers are down and we can't get word through to our squadron. It is up to you to race against the night through dangerous skies to give word that the squadron's position has been compromised." Along the way, things don't go as planned and you must adapt.

The mission can be downloaded to any mobile device, PC or MAC and played like a regular audio file through the player and speakers. Hop in that cockpit and start your adventure.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is to meet a holiday delivery. These are production ready prototypes so funding gives the green light. If we hit our funding goal early, I will have the dies made and start our first production run so everything will be ready to ship at the close of the campaign.

If the campaign takes off like a rocket, we may not be able to logistically fulfill all orders by the holiday. If we face that happy challenge, we will do everything we can to get the items to you as soon as possible.
