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.

We are showered in dim, fluorescent and depressing lighting!!

Unfortunately, our options to remedy this are limited to plastic, mass-produced glowing things which are often discarded after a few short weeks or months.

I wanted to create something different which was more along the lines of fine furniture. An ageless piece of art which could be handed down, generation after generation, while creating a soothing, warm and relaxing lighting experience.

 

By combining the classic look of wood, with modern electronics, Glowscenes is the perfect blend of quality, sophistication and uniqueness.

With its luxurious furniture-like finish and warm lighting, its soothing to the mind and soul.

Manufactured to exacting standards by using the latest high precision equipment such as laser cutters and CNC machines. Each Glowscenes is hand assembled in the USA to perfection.

 Creating Jobs

Glowscenes was designed, machined and assembled in Long Island New York. Part of my mission with Glowscenes is to stimulate the local economy by supporting local factories and employing local talent including retirees.

 What people are saying about Glowscenes!

Karyn S.

"We love our glowscenes so much. It provides the perfect glow to our babies NICU room to make it relaxing and give sensory feedback to her!"

 

Risks and challenges

Having backed 25+ projects myself, I also understand the expectations of being a backer. Communication is something which I really appreciate as a backer. Good and bad news are equally welcome.

I have spent 15+ years in the electronic design and manufacturing space. I have personally designed and developed hundreds of products ranging from simple blinking lights to complex medical equipment. Designing and developing is something I am extremely comfortable with and passionate about.

With that said, Glowscenes is ready for manufacturing today! I have gone through great lengths to de-risk this project as much as possible. All vendors have been identified and I have also performed a dry run with them to make sure they can deliver and meet my high-demanding standards.

The most complex portion of this project is the laser cutting and machining of the wood. So I selected a local manufacturer to work with. In the event something goes wrong, I can take a quick 20 minute ride and sort things out.

Of course, as with any project there will be speed bumps. However when I hit them you will be the first to know.

If you do decide to trust in my capabilities, thank you. No really, THANK YOU! You are providing me with the opportunity to do what I love and share it with you.

If not, thank you for reading about it and I hope Glowscenes has provided you with some relaxation from its enchanting glow.
