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 this project

Simply put, *Ubooks are written words on video feed. This allows stories of all kinds to be viewed on devices at reading pace, enabling the reader to be fully immersed into the story. An added benefit to this is that music can be tied to the story, further enhancing the experience. Currently, we are producing anywhere from three to five of these stories a month. They are released to our email list on the first of the month, then to the general population two weeks later, all free of charge via our **Youtube channel. As you can imagine, they are extremely labor intensive with anywhere from 150 to 15,000 frames per story. The novel we're working on right now will have 18,750 frames in it upon completion. That’s a lot of frames. And a lot of work.

And there are so many more stories we'd like to make.

With the money from this Kickstarter campaign, we plan to hire one to two more people to make frames, also we hope to free up some time for Melanie so she can solicit and edit future stories.

Help us. Join us. Set books free.

*Ubooks are a patent-pending book format

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge right now is time. We're physically unable to complete as many of these stories as we'd like. That's where this campaign comes in. We'll hire more people to produce more stories.
