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

We wanted to create the most comfortable seat you ever sat in, that is also super light, so you can carry it around in a small bag, wherever you go. The beach, pool, festival, office, home or just anywhere you want!

At first, it was a challenge, because it also needed to be out of high-quality enduring PVC and everyone should be able to afford it. So when we started to design the PandaNap in August 2017, we tried a lot of chairs to find the perfect shape. Funny enough, the first designs looked somehow like a sitting Panda. So we looked at different pictures of Pandas, videos of how they behaved and came to the conclusion, that those lovely animals, with their whole fluffiness, are the perfect match to our seat. Let’s be honest: Who doesn’t want to cuddle with a Panda?

In December 2017, we finally had our first prototype ready and tested it in Berlin. It was a total success. The PandaNap floated on the water and endured every stresstest we could think of. The PandaNap has the perfect size of 130x90x90cm and even has two drink holders in his arms, so you can fully enjoy a cold beer or drink while floating through the summer.

But that wasn’t the last challenge: We didn’t want to launch just another product, we wanted to listen to a lot of people first, if the world really needs our PandaNap!

So before the PandaNap will be officially launched and sold in stores, we hope for the support of loads of backers during our Kickstarter campaign. Let’s make the PandaNap the product of the year together! Back our PandaNap and receive the first one right to your home address! You can even become a Panda Sponsor with the Sponsorship Package and help to protect real Pandas.

We made it easy to use the Pandanap! We integrated a Rapid Walve System which is 5x time faster than traditional valves. You can choose between 3 options to inflate your panda: Hairdryer, mouth or air-pump. Easy and Fast to PandaNap anywhere you want.

  • Comes in a PandaNap box, 
  • Size: 35” x 25” x 13” Inflated size: 130” x 90” x 90”

The PandaNap is designed with beautiful curves, colors and attention to detail. You will even find a drink holder at each arm, so you can relax and enjoy your drink without any distress. We only used high quality, non-phthalate vinyl to ensure the best floating experience. The PandaNap is made of beautiful soft touch non-phthalate vinyl that contains no DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DNOP and DIDP. So don’t stress, relax anywhere you want!

Not only did we create a beautiful product for you, we also want to support the real Panda worldwide. So of every PandaNap you buy, we will donate 1 Euro in order to protect and rescue our beloved Panda. Follow our stories on Facebook and Instagram for more Infos. 

See our team in action below and all the different possibilities to enjoy your time with our Pandanap.

With the big support package we are not only able to produce the most comfortable seat in the world, we can also donate 20 Euro to help protect the Panda worldwide.

Attached you will find the look and feel of our certificate we will send to you in a high quality print, if you choose the big package.

Risks and challenges

We have built a prototype and have been putting it to the test. By our calculations, if we get enough orders in, we can get these made by April and send them out end of April.

We are very excited to hear what you have to say about this new product.
