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

We’ve come up with a solution since he couldn’t - a way to ensure the toilet seat goes back down after each use!

 Whether you are:  

  • Figuring out your life plan with a bunch of roommates 
  • Living the dream sharing a 400 sq ft apt with your boyfriend in Manhattan 
  • Married for 20 years and he’s never changed his ways

 Stop the morning battles once and for all. SmartNūdge™ is so easy to put in place it seems silly to even call it installation. Simply follow three steps and all your bathroom battles come to an end for good. It takes about as much time as changing toilet paper…. We know, a pain right?

3 Simple Steps
3 Simple Steps

 Curious to know how it works? Don’t worry - we’ve thought of everything… The SmartNūdge™ has an internal motherboard to control its decisions. Each time the seat is put up, it starts counting…. One-one-thousand, two-one-thousand…. For 90 seconds. The average man pees in 21 seconds, so even if he has performance anxiety you don’t need to worry with SmartNūdge™.

SmartNūdge™ comes with the following bonus features included:

  • 4 'slam stoppers' in case you don't have a 'soft-close' toilet seat
  • Optional magnetic mounting kit which allows you to remove the SmartNūdge™ whenever you want

 The funds which we raise through this kickstarter will be used to produce the SmartNūdge™ in a large scale production run. As we move from a prototype to full production, we will incur costs ranging from cast mold production to bulk transport. Our Kickstarters will help us fund these initial costs in a big way! In gratitude to “getting in early” we are offering several levels of rewards depending on your pledge.  

SmartNūdge™ will be ready to ship to you 6 months after the Kickstarter funding goal is reached.

Risks and challenges

We’ve vigorously tested our prototypes over the last several years to ensure we are bringing you the promise of a production-ready product. Our team has vast experience working with sensor technology used in the global hospitality industry, so we are truly leaving nothing to chance.

We will be able to meet our estimated delivery dates as we’ve decided to produce the SmartNūdge in the Czech Republic - less than 1 hour from one of our homes. Not only does this assure us clear and timely communication with our production facility, it allows us to check the quality at each step of the process.
