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

What is TAG?

TAG is a small, versatile and unbelievably affordable tracking device that helps you track your belongings via the TAG smartphone App that you can control via your personal assistant such as Google Assistant ('Ok Google') and Siri.

Ever had a valuable stolen? Stats suggest that you probably have!

  • A laptop is stolen once every minute
  • 2 Million bikes are stolen every year
  • 3.1 Million phones are stolen every year

Most of us feel hopeless searching for that misplaced wallet and those elusive keys. If you're like us, you probably spend approximately 12 days a year searching for things, again as suggested by the stats.

At TAG, we want to solve these issues in a cost-effective manner! Spending more than 25 dollars for one item tracker felt expensive, so we came up with TAG, the most affordable item tracker in the world!

TAG's Features

TAG Features
TAG Features

 Magic Button

Double click your TAG to sound an alarm on your phone, send an alert with real time location to your emergency contact, or customize the action to your needs. 

 Personal assistant integration

Find your TAG'ed items by simply giving a voice command to your phone. You can literally ask the TAG app to find your things.

Navigation

TAG remembers the last location of your TAG'ed items. No more panic attacks while searching for your bike or car in that messy parking lot! The TAG app will provide you step-by-step navigation to your TAG'ed item. 

 Track it Worldwide

If you have lost your item, just report it through the TAG app and every TAG enabled phone will search for it using the crowd GPS.

Ring-a-Ring

You can ring your TAG using your phone and the built-in sound alert will guide your search. But, what happens when you lose your phone? Simply ring it from TAG even when it is on silent mode.

 Separation Alert

This feature helps you never forget anything behind. When you are more than 20 yards away from your TAG'ed item, both your phone and TAG will send a separation alert.

 

How's TAG better than other products?

 Do more than tracking!

TAG makes itself more useful by having the ability to do things beyond just tracking. Do you wish you could press a button to launch an action command on your phone? Do you want TAG to call Uber/Lyft at your location? No problem. You can use TAG as a magic button. Press it, and it's done!

 

 

Voice your Command!

With personal assistant integration, TAG takes it one step further. You can ask the TAG App to find your TAG'ed item anytime, anywhere. 

How TAG Works?

Using TAG is fairly straightforward.

The Team

 

Risks and challenges

Tag is our first product and there is always risk involved with the launch of a new product, especially the first. We have tested the hardware and also have a contract in place with our overseas manufacturer. However, as with any hardware business, maintaining a strict production schedule is our biggest challenge.

We have our own hardware and software tests in place to make sure that the products reaching your hands are not defective and work well. Although our benchmarking would run for every single product that ships, there are times when hardware products tend to behave erratically. If it turns out that a product that reaches you shows faults within the first 10 days, we replace your Tag, no questions asked.

We are confident that we will be able to produce and deliver Tag as expected by our projected delivery date. Our team is dedicated to see that through.

1. We have a team with over 25 years of combined experience in strategy, operations, marketing and product development
2. We have secured production and assembly facilities and contracted couple of manufacturers and are prepared for multiple contingencies.
3. We will run a beta test via our marketing partners to make sure that the beta tester's feedback is included in the final product that our Kickstarter backers get.
4. We have overcome the challenge of making the technology work by testing many prototypes. At this point, the question isn't whether we can make it work (because it does), the question is how many we should produce!
