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

 

The wireless bankcard (RFID) has been around in the Netherlands for many years. Easy for small transactions up to €25 but also highly accessible for wireless pickpocketing. At the same time, many nations such as the U.S are facing huge problems such as stealing data from credit cards and bank cards. Together, with the frustration of security and convenience, we’ve created Bee-Case.  

The Bee-Case is a 2-in-1 phone case and wallet designed for professionals, by professionals. Specifically crafted for smartphone users, the Bee-Case secures wireless bank and credit cards and makes your most used RFID-card truly accessible for whatever life throws at you. It is functionality wrapped in stylish genuine leather with a focus on detail.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

       

 

 

 

 

We as young entrepreneurs became aware of the risks coming from having a wireless payment card. We found out there was fear among people for wireless theft. As common travellers, the founders also experienced annoyance when the wireless cards fell or interfered while checking in. 

There are some other phone cases to make sure you solve one of the problems, but none of these solutions solves both the problems with an easy user experience. Why not integrate functionality with style….  

We pitched this idea for the contest ‘Almere Pitches 2016’, and were the proud winners. From there everything went very fast. Now we run our company, have a own place to work from and are ready to make the next step through this Kickstarter!  

Seeing how in the past so many people have helped us to get this far, we wanted to have a name which resembled this. On a sunny day we walked past a bee-hive and we were impressed what by what the bee’s created. And as we all know, not a single bee-hive is the same. And then it hit us, InnoBee! Innovation and create new products, but you have to build them with the people around you!

 

We created the Bee-case because all the other phone cases could not offer RFID-security in combination with checking in easy. On the other hand, the products which would offer this security: sleeves, alumium cases etc. fully excluded the use of RFID-cards and as result created extra executions.  

Using our knowledge and engaging our network by chatting and pitching our idea, we started by sketching and rapid prototyping. Doing this we developed a quality phonecase which works one or both ways. Meaning security and usage of RFID-cards combined in a production ready prototype.

 *Notice there can be a difference in color because the use of genuine    leathers

 

After spending one full year researching, prototyping, testing and tweaking, we’ve finalized the Bee-case. Every feature on a Bee-case is put through extensive thought and detail and undergoes review by everyone within our company. Our product line of three unique Bee-cases gives you the best security and functionality, all within the palm of your hand. Integrated in stylish genuine leathers, the Bee-Case is a must-have phone accessory. Nevertheless, these are not the main reason you should support our project.

Your support on this project will help InnoBee’s mission: to provide mobile accessories that will make your life easier and safer with intelligent protection making it available for everyone to enjoy mobile usage even more!

Our ambition is to ultimately reach this goal. It won’t happen overnight but we are dedicated to innovate, inspire, and tell people about our mission and to co-create together with our Bee-community to create the best mobile accessories possible.

The Kickstarter funds will be used to do large-scale production of our Bee-case collection. Any additional Kickstarter funds will be used to ramp up production and focus on building the next generation mobile accessories that will work toward our mission.

So if you believe in the idea that our mobile accessories experiences will deliver a convenient and easy life with great joy, then please join of our Bee-community to help us to create our beautiful products to life.
