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.

We have been working on L.U.C.Y. for over a year now and we are happy to introduce this project to you. L.U.C.Y. works with a lot of gadgets you might have or you want to have. We feel like it is about time to bring L.U.C.Y. to more homes and share this great idea. With your help we can make L.U.C.Y. even better and add more development power to the team. Your pledge will help us deliver a friendly and discrete assistant that will enhance real life experiences and offer a unique center for your smart home gadgets.

We need you to get L.U.C.Y. in the hands of users and developers everywhere. We need your support to overcome the initial costs for tooling and materials. Support the world's first home assistant with touch screen and camera and own one of the first L.U.C.Y. home assistants for a much better price.

Risks and challenges

We have been working on L.U.C.Y. for almost a year now. We acquired the right developers and relevant funding last year and big partners earlier this year. Now we feel like we can start going public and offer this on Kickstarter for early adapters. Your support will help us to make L.U.C.Y. even better.

One risk still remains since we depend on our manufacturers. If the suppliers are not meeting their projected lead times for selected components we might encounter timing issues. Most of our suppliers have already made commitments about volumes and lead times but there is always a chance of deviation, resulting in an overall delay of production.

Any questions left? Feel free to email us at hello@welcome-lucy.com.
We would love to get in touch with you.
