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

Have you ever wanted a clock that was accurate down to the second with G.P.S. time received from satellites orbiting the earth? How about the convenience of never having to set seconds and minutes again, and instead only setting the timezone? If you answered yes to either of these questions then this clock is for you. If you have basic soldering skills you can even build the kit version of this clock in a few hours and enjoy all the convenience and accuracy of G.P.S. time anywhere in the world. 

Features:

  • Easy one button worldwide timezone adjustment allows you to set the timezone for the G.P.S. desk clock quickly.
  • Convenient USB power connector means this clock can be powered using a wide variety of different ways. It's likely you have a free USB port near where you plan to place this clock, but if you don't the traditional USB wall adapter that is provided with both the kit and assembled versions works great.
  • Elegant and simple design in all black that compliments nearly all environments and looks great.
  • Ultra low power consumption typically this clock only uses less than 1/10th the power it takes to charge your phone.
  • The G.P.S. module was tested at various indoor locations and was found to have excellent signal strenth. 

The kit version will include everything you need to make and power your very own G.P.S. clock however it will be up to you to either print the included case STL files or make your own D.I.Y. case.

Included with the Kit version:

  • Pre-Programmed Arduino nano V 3.0
  • 5 x Max 7219 LED dot Displays
  • U blox Neo 6m G.P.S. Module
  • Small tactile button
  • 10k resistor
  • 4000 series diode
  • Assembly Instructions
  • Operating Instructions
  • Case STL file download link
  • USB mini cable
  • USB wall adapter (US Style)

Included with the Assembled Version:

  • Ready to Use G.P.S. desk clock
  • USB mini cable
  • USB wall adapter (US Style)
  • Operating Instructions

Risks and challenges

Most of the challenges involved with this project have been overcome, and a fully working prototype has been created. A few tweaks to the arduino code and stl files remain to be made to perfect them. Depending on the quantity of units to be made we will be either sourcing parts for in house assembly or contracting out. 3D printing the cases in quantity will likely be contracted out in any scenario.
