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.

WONDERCUTTER is an ultrasonic cutter.  

We cut paper with scissors. We make a hole in the wall with a drill. We cut wood with a saw. Then how do we cut plastic that is used so often?

For WONDERCUTTER, cutting plastic is as easy as cutting cheese.

 

WONDERCUTTER is a machine that easily cuts materials by lowering the coefficient of friction with 40,000 vibrations per second. We can’t really see, or feel the vibration but it cuts materials with rapid oscillation. Like the waterdrops cut through a rock. 

 

 Fast 

 Vibrations of 40,000times/sec. Maximize efficiency & Minimize heating.  The system is safe from the amplitude control, over-power, over-voltage and over-current. 

“One million twenty one, one million twenty two, one million twenty three…..’’ Are you ever going to cut? 

 Be proud of yourself for all the progress you have made that no one else could have done. 

 

Delicate

 

It is hard to work with regular knives when you need to make delicate cuts.

With WONDERCUTTER, anyone can become an expert at making plastic model, accessary, and DIY products.

 

Easy

It is easier and safer to use if you put it on your desk or carry it on your waist when you use it.   

Imagine your son or daughter playing with the toys you made for him or her. 

Reduce accidents by using vibration energy. Even senior citizens and handicapped people with not as strong handgrip also can use the product easily.

How Did We Come Up with This Idea? 

There is nothing like building and making things with your own hands that improves your self esteem and confidence. And it is the same for anyone regardless of your age, preference, whatsoever. My colleagues and I wanted to invent a safe and handy tool that allows everyone to use very easily.

The ultrasonic cutter is often used for making delicate cuts in industrial field such as cutting bumpers or smartphone cases. It is perfect for cutting, but its only problem is the price that goes up to million dollars. And I have come up with this question, “what if we miniaturize these cutters and make something affordable and easy to use so that anybody can use?”

  

Timeline 

We are a small yet strong team comprised of highly talented and successful professionals who has decades of experiences in various fields. Every each one of us comes from different background, which allows us to bring new ideas and various viewpoints. As a team, we share a common goal and it is to invite people to our journey of innovation and creativity.

 

Certification/ Patent 

 

CAUTION 

Make sure you wear safety gloves when using WONDERCUTTER.

Do not use this on hard materials, metal, or glass.

If you slowly cut through hard materials with WONDERCUTTER, you might damage the material with frictional heating. It is designed to be most suitable for cutting 3mm plastics

Risks and challenges

Since this project requires high technologies, there were countless attempts that we made and many obstacles that we had to face. The whole process that we had to go through was quite tough, but so is our team! With every each one of our members’ expertise and efforts, we were able to bring our final production and be ready to introduce it to the world.
From beginning to the end, our team had one goal. And it is to improve the quality of peoples’ life and to help people accomplish what they want to build and make.
In order to achieve the goal, we always put our main focus on safety of WONDERCUTTER. Although WONDERCUTTER is an amazing gadget that makes cutting so much easier, there’s always possibility of an accident. That is why you must be careful and concentrate when using the device.
If you be extra careful and cautious when using WONDERCUTTER, you will find a huge difference between our product and other products from different companies.
We will make sure that we keep you undated with every step of our process, but please feel free to ask us any questions if you have any. We want constant feedbacks from you and we would like to share our vision by communicating with you. We hope that you would like to communicate with us too.
