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

The SharpShot EZ-Trainer is a fun, simple to use, multi-function marksmanship training system controlled by your smartphone or tablet for use with laser and airsoft practice devices. Features include:

  • A self-contained training box requiring no other equipment besides a smartphone/tablet and training device.
  • Unit sets up and is ready to train with in less than a minute.
  • Place your phone anywhere within Bluetooth range and watch it display and report all the hits on the target in real-time.
  • Use anywhere indoors letting you train without spending on ammo.
  • Shot location, order and timing tracked for every hit.
  • Store all your shooting sessions for later review.
  • Choose from several different training scenarios such as quick draw and shoot/don’t shoot.
  • Provides exact hit locations in distance from bullseye.
  • Connect to and make use of multiple boxes at once for an intense training session.
  • Use a standard NRA target or print your own images on 8.5”x11” paper.
  • Android and iPhone/iPad compatible. Apps available now for download from Google Play and Apple iTunes. Search for SharpShot EZ-Trainer.

This product is built on the proven OCAT system.  We have spent a year rebuilding that technology into an easier to use system.  Multiple prototypes have been built and tested, the app software coded and tested.

We have moved to the point we are ready to go on to production. We are looking to raise the funding to cover the production cost.  The product is already designed, constructed, tested, and ready for production.

All pledges for units come with SharpShot box, set of targets, and power supply.  The control app is free.  A stretch goal is the 8.5x11 adapter ($110k). Some pledges include a rechargeable battery pack to use the unit without a power outlet. 

Ships worldwide unless subject to USA export restrictions. 

MSRP estimated to be $395 after the campaign.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk we see right now is our supply chain. There is one part that we are in the process of ensuring is available for all of the backers. We will be staging the deliveries to ensure that we can get that part and make sure that all of our backers get their systems on time. If this one part is not available there are alternate parts that can be used and we have a plan to source those parts if needed.
