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 Portable Sound Recording Studio came to life as a perfect mixture of raw talent combined with technical expertise. The inventor, Karl Williams, works in HVAC as a trade, but has a passion for music.  Many times Karl was inspired to create personal songs and make unique recordings, although he struggled with poor sound quality using amateur equipment.  

Karl used his craftsman's skill to build a hand-held sound enclosure for his recording device. The enclosure eliminates background noise and accentuates the quality of his voice.  Problem solved!  Now Karl records his professional quality music right from home!  Professional sound quality is created by using a standard smart phone nested inside the hand-held enclosure.

With his personal recording problem solved, Karl is making new recordings of his previous works and is spending time on new projects. Karl's device performs so well that he has patented his design and is looking for ways to mass produce it.

Karl's patent agent recommended that he work with the design consulting professionals at Envolve Engineering.  He met with the Technical Lead, Pat Boarman at Envolve.  They struck a deal.  Now Karl is part of the design team working hand-in-hand with engineers and designers to take his idea from concept to production!

Brainstorming & group input led to variant models of Karl's original concept.  Integration of smart phones into the studio has created an extremely affordable way to capture great sound using just the smart phone with Karl's device.

Risks and challenges

Karl has overcome most of the risk factors from his project. He built a prototype based on personal need and passion, but wisely chose to partner with industry professionals to mentor him through the design process.

Karl has patented the unique concepts of his design by working with a reputable, licensed patent agent with 30+ years of experience, George Morgan. Karl's idea does not infringe on other patents. His novel concepts are protected.

Envolve Engineering, LLC agreed to work with Karl to develop his concept. Their engineering team draws from a pool of experts in product design, whom model parts in 3D using Solidworks, make prototypes using in-house industrial grade 3D printers and outsource metal bending and assemblies to a network of production partners. Their network resources are mature with over 30+ years of accumulated success in product launch.

Karl's biggest challenge is to obtain development funds to properly design and launch his product. Per the recommendation of his design team, Karl needs to meet or exceed the funding goal of this campaign to orchestrate a 1st-run build of at least 50 fully assembled and functional Juggernauts, Karl's portable sound recording studio.
