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.

Do you know who Phil Zimmermann is? He's a cryptography wizard Harry! He created the most widely used email encryption software in the world and he's been fighting for digital freedoms and rights such as privacy for more than 40 years! 😲

Anyways, he's awesome AND he made a short video about Openbook 👇

P.S. He's also our chief cryptography wizard 😎 

P.S. 2: The name of the encryption software is PGP 🤓

Risks and challenges

Building a social network is tough. Building the most awesome social network EVER is even harder. We gathered a team of internationally renowed security experts, brilliant designers and ace software engineers, to take on the challenge.

Even with all that talent, a social network is made up of many building blocks and the biggest challenge is getting all these blocks interacting with each other smoothly in a secure and privacy friendly manner.

Next, while we are prepared to work day and night, all day, everyday, estimating software development isn't easy. Just google "software estimate meme" and you'll know what we meme, ahem.. mean.

That's why the next big challenge we will have, is shipping on time. To combat this, we'll be working in a structured and strict manner (e.g tasks, goals, milestones) and keep you up-to-date with everything that is going on.
