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

 HI ALL ,Thanks for the fantastic support and input!

We have decided that as it is, this launch does not make clear enough what we are offering and also the rewards and prices are not clear enough, people have really got behind us on this project but have not backed us because they are unsure what they are getting for what investment, so we will relaunch it very soon with a clearer idea of the product and clearer rewards/prices. for updates check

    THE SLIDERKUT AT A GLANCE

The Sliderkut is a linear scratching and mixing device for DJ's played on advanced vinyl systems like SERATO, TRAKTOR Etc.

This high precision mix tool can replace an expensive and heavy turntable in your set up. This giving you the ultimate scratch weapon.

WE ARE NOT TRYING TO REPLACE THE TURNTABLE. 

this is an alternative (shlepping across town to the gig were you cant park for example) Set up, Pack up in a fraction of the time.

 

HOW DOES THE SLIDERKUT WORK?

We have implemented an analogue TIMECODE , which is read by our gadgetry inside our slide carriage allowing you to simply connect it to a DVS interface for SCRATCHING, JUGGLING, MIXING and much more. The linear design offers ultra low latency allowing super tight control with direct response. Solidly perform the most advanced scratching techniques with confidence. Forget about jumping cartridges, calibrating your decks and worn out needles.

We are using top quality slide bearings in the Sliderkut and it will continue to gave outstanding performance with the right touch feel and durability.

We tried using space age plastic 'dry slide' bearings tested to over 500,000 'slides' on the new prototype but it just wasn't smooth enough (thats why we use the first prototype in the vids!). Your Sliderkut will be the new shape with the expensive linear bearing from the original, tested by us for the last 2 years! 

DJ FONG FONG Guarantees DJ's and Scratch enthusiasts will love this new way of scratching and performing smoothly as on a professional DJ turntable.

SLIDERKUT requires NO BATTERIES OR POWER SUPPLY

The Siderkut scratches and mixes as smoothly as a turntable (Dj Fong Fong was obviously VERY explicit about this).

We have spent many months sourcing, developing and improving this product to ensure transition from spinning decks to Linear sliderkut who will be absolutely flush, inspiring and fun.

Our research and development is ready . WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN BRING THIS BRILLIANT TOOL TO YOU AND THE DJ WORLD! 

 

FONG FONG SAYS:

I dreamt about this project in 2009. Really in a dream ha ha, I woke up and directly wanted to created this crazy project, 1st as a guitar scratch.

1st dream idea!, guitar type
1st dream idea!, guitar type

and secondly as a real scratch portable player with the same feeling as a real turntable. No need to practice on it ! You directly feel comfortable as if you are on your deck!

First prototype was create with Geofresh, a friend who lives in Lyon and now the story continue with Rob  a metal engineer who has amazing build talents!

DJ FONG FONG

Fong Fong is a name synonymous with innovation and talent in mixing and scratching

 On paper, his credentials also speak for themselves, having crushed his competition in style and being crowned both “DMC France Champion” and the coveted “DMC World Online Champion”.

ROB,

Fong Fong approached me with this amazing idea and I could see the potential straight away, after many weeks to and fro we came up with the revolutionary piece of kit you can now see.

Engineer, metal worker, product development a speciality. Rob has produced products and found solutions for various products and high end firms.

Fong Fong approached him with the original working prototype

We have kept the design as 'pure' as we can for the SliderKut

MEGA PORTABLE, SUPER STURDY, BEST QUALITY COMPONENTS

MEGA PORTABLE!

Finished product will be around 400mm long by 80 mm wide come with a case and will fit neatly in your Dj bag.

SUPER STURDY!

Using thick plate steel and aluminum plus industrial linear slide bearings.

The 45,000 euros is for final design, tooling and distribution of the Sliderkut .

Thanks for your support!

The SLIDERKUT team.

Risks and challenges

We need to source the best bearings and break test them to discern the usable life and tolerance as we need the sliderkut to last a lifetime.
We have no intention of bringing to market a discount plastic toy. This will be a tool for use in the real dj community and we will make it with only the best quality components !
