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.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

We have put a lot of time and energy to get you the lowest cost shipping. All products will be shipping by United States Postal Service: International First Class Package. It comes with tracking but it not at times up to date or accurate. We never had issues with our past projects but if your country or area has poor mail service it is something beyond our control. You we get a notification when you Cary ships but it can take up to 2-4 weeks to arrive at some locations in the world. Most will take 1-2 weeks to arrive. Please contact us if you like to have more questions about this.

Background Story This is not your grandma’s pill holder The Problem Portable pill containers on the market are either too heavy, too much too difficult to work with. 
I found it to be extremely frustrating to unscrew the cap to access my pills. I would unscrew the cap to fill it in the morning and unscrew it again to take my medications and supplements. If I had arthritis, this would be nearly impossible. It’s also hard to know if I’ve taken my pills. Since all the other products are heavy, opaque metal, I can’t see inside at all. 
Sometimes I would forget to take my pills. And what if I wanted to bring some lip balm with me while skiing or hiking? Forget about it. The current containers offered zero versatility and I would have to carry everything in my pockets. 
 Introducing Cary Cary is the keychain accessory with the ease-of-access and versatility you need. It weighs the same as a single house key, less than half as much as any metal container. 

Simply slide the container tube out of the holder, give the cap a quarter turn and take your pills. Pop the cap back on—no complicated threading to mess with—and slide it back into the holder. Stop fumbling with your keys while you take your pills and experience the simplicity of Cary. 
Fill it with whatever you need for the day: toothpicks, AAA battery, vitamins to take a lunch time, lip balm, spices, pills or whatever life's adventure requires. Cary has you covered. In addition to the Cary keychain accessory, 
I designed the solid wood “Home” container holder for a weeks-worth of pills, each in their own pharmaceutical-grade plastic container. Simply swap out the vial each morning and you’re on your way in seconds. The “Home” base sets beautifully in your kitchen or bathroom cabinet and replaces your old days-of-the-week pill holders. Upgrade the “Home” kit to the “Travel” which includes an additional wood top so you can take it traveling. The included elastic strap keeps it all secure in your luggage, carry-on or handbag.

Made in Good Ol’ USA HANDCRAFTED IN GLENDALE CALIFORNIA I chose to have it made in the USA so we can have closer control over the quality and delivery of the Cary. It is crafted from a single sheet of stainless steel. My manufacturing partner is a short one-hour drive from our offices. This means I can be there to personally inspect production and make sure every Cary is perfect. To get Cary to you as quickly as possible, I’ve already completed tooling including three sample runs to confirm the fit and finish of the product. What how the Cary in Made

The case that holds your stuff PLASTIC CONTAINER: Made with pharmaceutical-grade plastic. I selected a container that does not use threads. Why? Threads are time consuming and you have to fiddle with the container put the cap back on. What can I carry?

Cary Wood Base The maple wood base holds 7 case’s for a weeks worth of pills. Four rubber feet keep in place. Perfect for a drawer or kitchen cabinet. Your Cary case’s are ready to go when you are. Once you have an empty case you flip it over so you know it is time to refill. The base is compact but wide enough to provide a stable home for your case’s. The travel unit includes a Maple top that can nest under the home base so you have everything in one spot.

Cary “Home” Kit The solid maple wood base holds seven plastic containers for a weeks-worth of pills, vitamins or supplements. Four rubber feet keep the “Home” base from sliding around your cabinet. It is perfect for a drawer, cabinet or shelf in your kitchen or bathroom. Quickly swap out the plastic container each day and you’re on your way. Want another trick? Flip your empty containers upside down in “Home” to make it easy to know when it’s time to refill.

Cary “Travel” Kit Upgrade your “Home” base with a matching maple wood top and a beautiful elastic strap. Simply slide the top over the containers and secure the durable wood cube with the band. Toss the “Travel” in your luggage, carry-on or handbag for a weeklong trip. 

What it holds lip balm too? Swap out the plastic container and slide in your favorite lip balm. Cary will fit most major brands of lip balm. Pop the cap off and apply without removing the balm. Cary even protects the dial on the lip balm from turning in your pocket. Special Feature Cary holds the plastic container firmly in place when not needed, but a simple slide with your finger and the container is easily removed.

Why Back Us? We have taken the time and care to develop a product for long life and years of enjoyment. We have taken extra steps to make sure product functions and performs to your expectations. 

The Tallac team has already completed two successful projects and are looking for you to help launch Cary.

Here is the list of what we have completed: 

1: Completed tooling for the stamped metal holder 

2: Produced a first article production run 

3: In stock items sampled, tested and ready to ship: ring, clip, lip balm and plastic container

4: Wood bases are made by a leading wood working company and we’ve been using working prototypes in our daily lives for a few months now

5: Elastic strap sampled and tested

Risks and challenges

New projects come with new risks.
We have done the following to reduce the risks on the project:
1: We have a completed first production sampling and approval.
2: Factory USA based. We can drive to them.
3: Cary Stainless Holder made in California
4: Price's quoted for all parts
6. First Article inspection before production run. We will be onsite at the factory when the parts are being made.
7. CAD drawings of the parts and complete documentation.
8. Full understanding of the production process.

This will be our third Kickstarter project. The other two are completed and the products are being sold world wide.

We have a full understanding of how long things take and what it takes to have a successful project.

We keep the backers in the loop at each stage of the project.

We keep all the backers up to date on the project status. We keep you in the loop. We are always here to reply to all emails quickly.
