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.

Enjoy Summer While Saving Face

 

 

Summertime in Australia is all about getting outdoors and enjoying the sun in any way we can. Unfortunately, the downside to this enjoyment is sunburn and the ageing effects that comes from being in the sun, especially on our faces. Many people can’t use sunscreen on their faces due to certain skin conditions, and many others just don’t want to, especially if wearing make-up.

Over the years, we have found very non-creative ways to deal with this problem. We’ve used everything to lay on top of our faces, from T-shirts to books, magazines, towels, our arms, in fact whatever we can get our hands on! That’s why we developed - Shader.

Shader is a compact, portable shade device, made to protect our faces while we enjoy the sun. It is designed to be able to adjust and move with the sun as you need it too.


 

Shader is perfect for men, women and children of all ages. Shader will lay flat when not in use, but will open up fully to cover your face, offering you shade and privacy. Shader also offers protection from wind and that troublesome sand that always seems to find a way to ruin your day.

Shader is Available in Four Vivid Colors

BONUS accessories to make Your Summer Super

 

 

 

Accessories include  Tailor made beach bag for Shader towel and accessories - Removable chill pillow - Drink holders in the base - Solar powered 2 USB port battery pack - USB fan - Velcro straps for use with sunbed 

Shader Perks are Sharp

Risks and challenges

Developing new products always carries with it, risks and challenges - Design, engineering, manufacture, assembly, storage, freight and of course capital outlay. Anyone who has ever made an attempt soon learns that it is not a matter of simply having a great idea and getting it made.
Shader is not our first product that we have developed from the outset.

HGT Innovations Pty Ltd (How Good's That?) is an established company which is known for developing the Fantom Doorstop Solution and is now found in over 60 countries. We have our manufacturing companies and staff ready to go following our Kickstarter campaign. We can organise freight to anywhere in the world and the capacity to make and store as many units as needed.

We have a network of distributors around the world waiting for us to send them stock in AUS/NZ, UK, EURO, US, Asia, Canada, Russia and the Middle East. We could not be more confident that if we have a successful Kickstarter campaign, that we will be able to deliver on pledges.
