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

Ingo is a compact stylus, that can be added to your key chain and telescope to full size when needed. 

The average stylus is large, heavy, and some of them need to be charged on a daily basis. These problems discourage people to use or bring a stylus along with them. 

With Ingo, there are no batteries, or electronics to worry about. This mean no need to constantly charge it, fear of dead batteries, or synchronizing with phones.

Ingo is fully analog, and it will always work without a problem. 

Each ingo package includes the following:    

  • one ingo stylus
  • one ingo caddy
  • one key chain split ring
  • 1 replacement tip

Risks and challenges

As a product designer, I am well aware of the risks and challenges that accompany the manufacturing process. I plan to begin tooling and ordering supplies as soon as ingo reaches the funding goal.

Items such as the the caddy need to be ordered ahead of time, while the rest can be manufactured and finished by our team.

There is always a risk of falling behind schedule for any project. To address not meeting deadlines, I can take precautions by securing multiple suppliers for parts and materials.
