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

My name is Shannon Travers, founder and creator of Bubble Buddies.

Our original product has made it possible for people everywhere to have a glass of wine in the bath without worrying about where to put it, or having it spill, and that’s a pretty big deal if, like me, you go through wine glasses like they are going out of fashion (and the plasters for my feet of course).

The feedback on Bubble Buddies has been phenomenal so far. With an official website and growing customer base, I never dreamed I’d have so much support when I made the first batch for sale. In truth, I have gotten a few complaints (mainly from my partner), and every one of them was the same. 

Where was the Beer holder? Our bathroom wall was now full of Bubble Buddies from my numerous experiments meaning I was more than catered for when looking to enjoy a tipple in the bath. But what about my partner? There was nowhere for his beer. I knew this was an issue but wanted to make sure I could walk before I ran and that there was a market for what we were doing. Once the wine holders took off I knew it was time for the beer holders so we got together with our factory here in Scotland and we created The Handy Shandy which holds our pint glass, beer can, beer bottle, and also soft drink cans for the non-drinkers.

The Handy Shandy is just as easy to use as the Bubble Buddy. No DIY required, just peel and stick. It’s that simple. The industrial strength double sided foam tape creates a bond between the tiles and the product that withstands temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius, and needs only a firm pull to take down. It won’t damage your bathroom tiles either!

Can’t order your own? How about forwarding the campaign to a couple friends and family, or sharing it on your social media with a very strong hint about your upcoming birthday? It’s a great way to help us spread the word, and hey, in the meantime, if you have any questions, or you’re looking to cop a Bubble Buddy while you wait for your pre-order, you can send us a message here, or head on over to www.bubblebuddies.com.

Get the Handy Shandy to make your bath or shower complete. Please remember to drink responsibly!

Cheers!

Shannon

Risks and challenges

We have worked really hard to do a lot of the background work with the limited funds we have available. We now have the product concept, have registered the designs and have completed prototypes however, we do need still need to have our packaging designed to be able to get these to our customers. And of course we need the money to make them.

We have teamed up with a local factory who also make our wine glass holders and so as soon as we have the funds, we will be able to push the button on this and the project should be relatively straight forward.

With our Handy Shandies, as part of the package we are also supplying top of the range 'Glastic' plastic pint glasses which have an incredible clarity and durability unlike any plastic glass we have seen before.

It promotes itself as an unbreakable alternative to glass and we are very excited to be working with this new company to bring these to you however, they are also a start up company so we will have to ensure that we can work together to meet demand and deliver on time.

We are also working to ensure that we can provide additional adhesive strips with each order by working closely with our tape providers to create pre-cut strips. This will allow our customers to re-use and move their Handy Shandies.
