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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
WHAT IS THE EGGMAP?
The EggMap is an urban travel gadget for your stress-free journeys.
An easy-to-use, light and fun map to discover any city around you and the perfect souvenir to bring home for your explorer friends.
Charging your phone or hunting for wi-fi is a non-issue, just zoom in to find out more about sights or public transport and go wander. Your destination is only a squeeze away.
Drop it, throw it against the wall – it's ready for the ride! To make it better, it’s made of waterproof material so you can use it even in unfriendly weather conditions like rain, wind, mud or snow.
The design is available for several cities around the world and we are expanding the list of global destinations based on your travel plans.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The EggMap combines the powers of a custom-designed map and a squishy stress ball so you can unwind while exploring the urban jungle. Squeeze the EggMap in order to zoom in on sights, public transport routes and entertainment options, and follow your path through 20 square kilometres.
WHO IS IT FOR?
If you get easily consumed by wanderlust and get a kick out of travelling, the EggMap is your perfect companion. Globetrotters, city lovers, map enthusiasts, digital detox heroes or zealous collectors: squeeze away!
We created custom-designed maps with special colour schemes which show places of interest and transportation routes as shown below. The map covers 20 square kilometres of any city (or even theme parks, festivals etc.), focussing on the main attractions - most loved and visited by explorers.
The EggMap is made of an eco-friendly, extra ductile latex construct, coloured with a brand new printing system to ensure the zoomability of the covering map.
The inside of the product is thermoplastic rubber that helps the flexibility of the map.
By supporting this campaign you are helping us bring the EggMap into the world and to more and more cities around the globe.
If you like urban exploring, please help us bring EggMap to your city by choosing one of the pledges.

We are super excited to bring EggMap to Kickstarter! We are fully aware that it will be even more hard work from now on, but we are ready.
Since the designs were created in 2015, our prototyping stage took over a year with redesigns, printing system remanufacturing and endless tests.
As a next step, manufacturing the tools for mass production while meeting quality standards is our biggest challenge and that is the main reason we turn to Kickstarter to help financially with setting up mass production. We are negotiating with suitable suppliers regarding tools and materials.
Meeting the milestones set out in the timeline is a challenge with every project. But are committed to follow through with years of project management experience in the team.
