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

The Burton Bulb

The LED revolution has come and it is here to stay, yet current LED bulbs  still lack the quality necessary to permanently replace their incandescent counterparts. Even though LED's are far more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, the lighting industry has gone backwards, to favoring quality of light over efficiency and cost savings.

Our mission at Burton Lighting is to innovate vintage LED lighting by providing decorative LED bulbs, with warm, soft light that is beautiful to gaze at and looks beautiful in a variety of design applications. Why can't consumers take advantage of both quality and efficiency? Bridging that gap is what The Burton Bulb is all about. 

Featuring Flickerless LED Technology™ and True Color Dimming, The Burton Bulb is the only Neo-Vintage LED on the market that addresses the poor quality in color  and the high amount of flicker that you currently find with traditional vintage LED bulbs.

Vision

Our product is versatile and crosses over to many applications including theater, film, HD television, commercial and personal. The Burton Bulb can be used in restaurants, homes, hotels, theaters, film sets, or wherever there are opportunities for the ambiance that vintage lighting creates.

As energy prices rise, so too will the demand for energy efficient lighting. The Burton Bulb provides energy savings of up to 75% when compared to vintage incandescent options, it also lasts far longer as it is guaranteed for 25,000 hours! These features will be key as the cost of energy increases in the years to come.

After two years of design and testing, The Burton Bulb is ready to change the lighting industry and usher in a new era of LED technology. Burton Vargas-Chambers has poured his creativity, resources, and time into this project and funding from the Kickstarter campaign will ensure that the next phase of manufacturing at high volumes can be achieved and take his business to next level.
