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

Just fill with the herb of your choice, close the lid and press the button to grind.

 The powerful 600Amp motor and metal gears combined with an Aluminum grinding chamber that grinds forward and reverse never jams and deposits the ground material exactly where you want it.

 We have been working on the Mamba for over a year both in the US and in China. We've purchased the dies and tooling necessary to make the plastic parts at a cost of 30,000 dollars, and have sourced experienced and responsible manufacturers for the machined metal parts.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our motors and electronics are supplied by a factory which makes name-brand power tools, and each unit is subjected to thorough testing at a state-of-the-art facility. The product is finished and we have already shipped a small production run to the USA. What we are looking for is enough backing to meet the costs of producing a large production run of 5,000 units and shipping them to our distributors in the USA.

Our goal is to bring our backers and customers the best possible product at the best possible price, while only working with manufacturers that operate ethically and responsibly. All our manufacturing partners are not only evaluated for pricing and quality control, but must also comply with strict and on-going social responsibility audits in order to ensure their staff are compensated properly and treated fairly. We want everyone involved in the production and distribution of the Mamba to be confident of its success without any doubts or reservations.

Risks and challenges

Our team specializes in product development and fulfillment, and has decades of experience sourcing products and components in China and Taiwan, managing supply chains, implementing QA/QC standards and testing, and delivering on time at the right price.

Still, you can't plan for everything, and Kickstarter is littered with promising products that turned out to be a lot harder to deliver on-time than their inventors imagined. In order to spare our backers from having to share in the frustrations inherent to developing a brand-new product, we have already done three small-batch production runs. Each batch allowed us to extensively test the Mamba and afforded us opportunities to tweak the design and materials and improve the functionality and user experience. This process took over a year and turned up many challenges for us to overcome. That's why we can confidently state that the hardest part is behind us; the Mamba grinders we have in hand are being used daily by our team in Colorado and are holding up flawlessly to all the abuse we can hurl at them. We have already invested the time, money, and expertise necessary to produce a fully functional product and a fully vetted supply chain so that you can fully enjoy being a part of bringing a quality product to market and delivering it in a timely fashion. Our challenge at this point is to exceed expectations, not simply to meet them.
