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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
We're a boutique industrial design firm, with our first release we set our focus on enhancing your daily routine.
We noticed a frustration in having no quick and convenient place for all the metal tools we use each day. From the keys we carry in our pockets to the kitchen knives we use to prepare our meals. Our solution is "Mag-Clip"
THE WAY IT WORKS:
Using a pair of super strong neodymium magnets, the Mag-Clip is able to securely hold all your daily metallic tools. With a holding force of more than 25 lbs the magnets we are using are more than capable of holding firm various tools and your daily carry keys.
We chose to use 1/8" Anodized 6061 Aluminum for its great strength and beautiful appearance. Coupled with silicone covers which offer better holding power for the top quality neodymium magnets which offer 25lbs of pulling force. We feel this provides a beautiful accent as it displays and functions on your hallway, kitchen, or workshop wall.
Anodized aluminum body
2 superstrong Neodymium magnets
High grip silicone face
Stainless steel mounting hardware
We have tested the Mag-grip with various hand tools and the Neodymium magnets we have chosen provide more than enough holding force for all your kitchen Chef's knives all the way to socket wrenches.
All manufacturing will be done in the USA. We are using local partners who we can check on to ensure the quality of the product is up to our vision. You can expect Bi-monthly progress reports from us as we gear up to make this project a reality!
Anodized aluminum will make up the body of the Mag-Grip. We are using 2 super strong Neodymium magnets. The silicone covers are made from from high quality FDA listed silicone. This all adds up to a feeling of quality and weight. Mounting screws are included as well!
Product will be delivered in laser cut foam pads for a perfect fit. Below is a sample of what the single pack will look like and a three pack. Mounting hardware screws will be included with each order!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD ON ANY ADDITIONAL "Mag-Grips" PAST THE 5 PACK PLEASE ADD $12 TO YOUR PLEDGE AND WE WILL CONFIRM THIS CHOICE WHEN THE CAMPAIGN ENDS
Risks and challenges
Our primary goal is to delivery a great product to all of our backers on time and with great attention to detail. For this reason we have kept the amount of variations (i.e. color choices and product sku's to a minimum for our Kickstarter campaign.
We anticipate this will provide an extra layer of security when it comes to executing the production of this product for all of you!. We are so honored and greateful for the support you backers are giving us, we just want to return the favor with a clean transaction and the best product we know we can deliver.
To do this we are working with suppliers in the US, and planning well in advance to make sure we can execute on our design intentions.
