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.

Gravity has been around since the beginning of time. Everything falls to the earth, and when lit, wood pellets burn. We decided to design an attractive device that would optimize the performances of human kinds greatest discovery, fire. That’s it! Those are the top 3 priorities in what we have done. We have found a way to take a single wood pellet that has no glues, additives or enhancements and get a 4 to 5 foot flame out of it. Naturally.

 

Wood pellets are the best source of fuel for what we were trying to achieve because it is renewable, inexpensive, can be easily transported and stored. It is also sold in so many retailers and bought in bulk there was no comparison. Its compressed saw dust. Created from lumber industries that mill dimensional wood for construction and forest trees that have been harvested due to a variety of reasons such as health or hazard. Manufacturers always create a premium blend of Pine and Douglas Fir trees, compress it to a specified diameter and length for packaging.

Here are some Reviews from        HomeDepot.com

March 7, 2017 5.0 out of 5 5.0 out of 5 Recommended Product 

What a difference this heater makes! Way better than the propane heater Ive been carrying around for the past 10 years and never use, too expensive. Twice the heat for less than 1 dollar an hour. We took ours snow camping and lit it within minutes of setting up camp. Nothing around us was good to make a fire so the Q-Flame actually made is so we could stay and enjoy ourselves. Bringing a $5 bag of pellets was easier than chopped wood for sure. Easy clean, just hosed it off. Not that there was a need, a dust pan broom would have been enough.

December 19, 2017 5.0 out of 5 5.0 out of 5 Verified Purchase Recommended Product 

Heater is very efficient and produces heat completely around itself. Great idea in outdoor heating, it's size allows it to fit under a patio cover and not scorch the underside of your patio. It's glass window let's you see the fire which is an added benefit. Should you wish to take it camping or to the beach it breaks down quickly for transportation. The best idea I've seen for outdoor heating.

 

Jury statement: "The archaic black design of the pellet oven visually conveys the heating power concealed within."

Jury statement: "The Q-Stove is a wood-pellet-fueled portable outdoor heater. It is safer to operate than its primary competition—the propane heater—and is more economical to run and much more environmentally friendly."

Don't forget about checking out the Reward Sections for information about Q Flame Accessories such as the All Weather Protective Cover.

Risks and challenges

Q-Flame wood pellet outdoor heater is fully patent protected, we have achieved 10 patents since 2015 and are still applying more patents not only in USA but also in Europe,Australia, China and other countries.

This fall/winter is the 1st season for our heaters. Within last 90 days, we have sold 250+ units Q-Flame to consumers through local dealers, HomeDepot.com; and we are now entering into sales network of Tractor Supply Co.and Ace Hardware. So in the future we would be a business of $10-20 million per year at least (estimated by Home Depot analyst).

As a product like a bright star, Q-Flame has won international design awards since it launched in March of 2017:
* the most important design award in USA: IDEA (International Design Excellent Awards)
* winner of most esteemed award in Europe: German Design Award

We will do everything we can to make sure your pre-order is delivered on time as scheduled. If there are any delays we will work with our backers and be fully transparent during the entire process.
Thank you for your support! :)
