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.

Our mission

Our mission is simple; we want to reduce the potential fire hazard involved in charging our devices. Our solution is to constantly monitor the temperature in the charger and phone/tablet, and if the temperature gets too high the SENSE cable will stop the charging and set off an alarm.

Easy to use 

Just plug in the cable and connect it to your device as you normally do, and that's it. The SENSE cable will automatically perform a self-test each time it is plugged in and will notify you that it is monitoring the temperature. No buttons, no setup, just safer!

Compability

The SENSE cable will fit your standard USB wall charger, and is compatible with most of the smart phones and tablets used today. If your device supports USB Micro, USB Type C or Apple Lightning (MFI certification pending), you are good to go!

 

Quality, made to last

We are using high quality electronic components together with 1.8 meter (6 feet) of AWG20 wires to ensure proper charging of your device. Since this is a safety product, we have decided that every single unit will be tested before leaving the factory so you can rest assured that your unit works as expected.

Local partners

Working with local partners during development and manufacturing ensures faster production and shipping. We aim to start shipping the first cables in December 2017.

  

 

Risks and challenges

The SENSE cable design is finished and we have a functional prototype and CAD design for the design. We need funding to pay for tools for final assembly and casting tools for the overmolding. The Apple Lightning connector is subjected to the MFI-program (Made for Iphone), and the use of the connector in our product is subjected to a certification process, thus the exact shipping date for the Apple Lightning version of our cable is hard to pinpoint.
