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

 

 

System overview  

LinXbox is a VPN WiFi-router in a box. LinXbox is to be connected with your internet router at home with RJ-45 cable and requires one free switch-port on your router. After it has been connected to the internet router at home, you connect to the LinXbox with your PC, laptop or mobile with WiFi. You will be presented with a login page to access the services (ref.1). After you have logged in, you will be presented with the services you have subscribed. Choose one of the service, and your internet connection is secured for devices connected on LinXbox.

Risks and challenges

The development of HomeLinker will be started as soon as we have reached our funding goal. The current design is to use port-forwarding to the HomeLinker server on your router. For using the HomeLinker feature, the same Web UI will be used.

The current software for LinXbox is working 100% for connecting with VPN breakouts provided by our working demo-site, elitenetwork.eu. Additional breakouts will be added while beta testing period lasts. We need more testers for our traffic engineering design.

The final version case will be designed as soon as the funding goal is reached. The PCB-board will the same as the ones we ships to beta testers.
