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.

Cyndr Sentry is the first infrared motion-sensing device for your personal work or game space. The software that comes with Cyndr Sentry lets you set an audio or visual alert on your computer, or even pull up a predetermined application when motion is detected.  The Sentry works with Windows 7/8/10.

Finally: a reliable way to stay alert to your surroundings while gaming or working.

Risks and challenges

There are many challenges when it comes to designing and manufacturing a product like Cyndr Sentry. Supply issues and manufacturing delays are not uncommon, and technical and design challenges can and do arise. In order to keep these risks from impacting our delivery date and product, we’ve forged strong relationships with suppliers and manufacturers so we can confidently mitigate most concerns. We’ve also vetted the design and production process to ensure an accurate and smooth estimated development and delivery timeline.

Our primary goal is very straightforward: to create the best possible product for our backers. While delays may occur at any stage, we are committed to delivering a product that exceeds the expectations of our backer community, while keeping them informed during the entire process.
