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.

Following our successful campaign in 2015 we are very pleased to bring our second unique travel bag to Kickstarter. Since the last campaign we have had many requests for a Carry-On / Hand Baggage version of the unique Unstoppable travel bag with its amazing 360° steering large wheels and thick protective skin.  In response to demand we have developed the 'Unstoppable Compact' and it is awesome.  As with our last campaign there is a fully wheelchair compatible option too.

The unique extra large omni wheels means the Unstoppable Compact doesn't rely on traditional castor wheels to turn. This means where you go your bag follows, it won't steer itself away from you, it won't fall over when you pull it up steps, it won't get stuck on lips, edges, cobbles, drain covers, curbs or rough surfaces.

The Unstoppable Compact will be compatible with rigid and folding manual wheelchairs. This will be achieved by the use of an adapter that sits under the wheelchair cushion on top of the seat canvas. For intellectual property reasons we can't show the detail of how it works on the internet. There is a requirement that the backrest and seat canvas can be separated so the adapter can extend out the back of the wheelchair as shown in the video clip below.  Most wheelchairs have individual seat canvas and backrest upholstery joined with velcro which is perfect for what we need but some wheelchairs have these two parts stitched together which is not good.

The Unstoppable 118L gear bag is compatible with rigid chairs that have a bar (straight or curved) on the rear of the backrest.  We are aiming that the large gear bag available in 'The Full Set' reward will fit folding chairs using our new Compact bag seat adapter.

FROM CAMPAIGN TO DELIVERY IN 2018
FROM CAMPAIGN TO DELIVERY IN 2018

We aim to ship all rewards before the end of Oct 2018. Bags that don't require wheelchair connections will ship first. Wheelchair connections take a little longer as these need moulds and manufacturing of the connections.

Andrew Slorance is well known as a designer and wheelchair user.  His work has been covered by a dedicated BBC television documentary and featured in many magazines and design reviews. Andrew's revolutionary wheelchair design was runner up to the very prestigious Design of the Year awards in 2012.  By backing this project you are backing Andrew with his extensive experience and design credentials.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks when bringing a new product to market but for us with this product the risks are quite low. We already have developed the product and have it in our hands. We know the manufacturer and use them to supply our other travel bags, so we know the quality is superb. We have a dedicated in house team who will keep in touch with you and make sure you get your reward. The biggest risk has to be timelines. Delays can happen when you least expect them and they can be completely out of our control. We have projected our delivery times to allow for delays but any backer should consider that their reward may arrive later than projected.
