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.

This is the fun part. It starts with an OYO. OYOs have special patented abilities not found in other minifigures - bend the knees, bend the arms - create realistic poses of yourself. Create whoever you want to be. We will continue to create and upload face/other features so you can build your own avatar. From there, pick your outfit from an ever-expanding list of creative outfit designs. Lastly, pick the style of your package and the messaging. On each package, the software will upload the image of your avatar and the messaging you created. Maybe you want to say Happy Birthday, Congratulations, or Funky Monkey Pink Unicorn. Its up to you, just have fun and inspire a smile.

Making your own OYOme is super easy and very cool!

The Technology

Our Idea is simple; the technology to make it all come together is the hard part. You make the creative, we make the product.   We’ve been working for 3 years developing a manufacturing system that allows you to select your own features of a minifigure using our proprietary design software. From there our automation processes handle the manufacturing of your minifigure thru fulfillment. We have successfully proven the capability on a limited proof of concept for professional baseball.

It took a rocket scientist…

For our proof of concept, our guru built a program that takes your input, creates graphic files, and sends them to our server ready for production printing. An automated work order is then created that tells us what parts and colors you chose. After that, we place the parts in the printer and print your design. At the same time, your packaging design is printed and we turn it into a box.

We then pull the parts and packaging together and ship out your creation to the right person. Each step is bar coded, so we get it right without making mistakes. With real-time manufacturing, your creation will be at your doorstep within days.

More Design Needed

To expand the current experience, we are working on extending the software capabilities to meet our vision for OYOme. We are also setting-up new “themes” for OYOme and integrating the code to flow it thru production. Once that’s done, our graphic designers can additional avatar features for your selection. We’re pretty fast, so let us know which ones to work on first or what we might be missing.

There are so many ways to express yourself through an OYOme! A memento of your child’s first t-ball team, instead of a trophy. A celebration of a great season; a celebration of how big a fan you are. A proud Statement of Alumni Honor. A wedding celebration. A marriage proposal. A new baby. A great sales achievement (because coffee is for winners) A statement about you! Because you are you!  

This Reward would be great for creating your five personas, or those of you and your buddies. Create your office mates!

Not just great for Weddings but also Birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, Communions, Family Gatherings - create a custom OYOme for 10 for just about any special occasion or corporate outing! 

 It's all about the Team! Be it sports or hobbies there is no better way to celebrate than a custom OYO with it's personalized packaging, display stand and shadow box for each team member!

 Make an unforgettable statement that is sure to get you and your company recognized! We will work with you to design a custom uniform with hat and logos. 

Recognize your employees in the most unique way - allow them to create themselves using your company's logo / template. Watch your company spirit soar!

We need to create MORE OPTIONS and TEMPLATES to choose from. Our best feedback will come from YOU, so please let us know what you want to see... 

Here are some of the ideas we have so far:

Themes

  • Pro Sports  
  • Youth Sports 
  • Interests / Lifestyle 
  • Music / Bands
  • Pets (tooling would be needed) 
  • Celebrations
  • Hobbies 
  • Work & Professional Achievement 
  • Funky Creatures (Aliens and Zombies) 
  • Superheroes 
  • Creative 

Based on the feedback we get and what has the most demand, we will create artwork and packaging templates so you can pick a theme that brings a lasting experience.

More Sports! What sports do you want to see?

Our plan is to create youth sports logos and let you pick the team colors and team names. There are so many options for sports, we just need you to support us and let us know which ones you are interested. We will work on new sports based on the level of backers for it. So rally for your cause.

For all you lacrosse fans... we've already designed a lacrosse helmet and stick, we just need to make a mold.

Customize Your Packaging

A momento of your child’s first t-ball team, instead of a trophy.  A celebration of a great season A celebration of how big of a fan you are. A proud Statement of Alumni Honor.  A wedding celebration. A marriage proposal. A new baby. A great sales achievement (because coffee is for winners) A statement about you! Because you are you!   If you have any other theme ideas, let us know.

We Need Hair

Each part is injection molded, so we need tooling for each hair design and minimum order quantities for each color. We have a few to start with, but we need your help. Let us know your style and we will see what we can do. No promises, we will work to find a supplier that carries the hair, or if there is enough demand we will make a new tool.

We Need Accessories

For new sports and to keep it fresh we continue to need new accessories. Share with us any ideas for new accessories and we will “add them to the list”. The more demand and support, the better chances that it will make sense to add them. 

 We are proud to share a couple of our recent awards with you

 

What can be accomplished is dependent on how much support we get. If we hit our minimum goal, it pretty much will cover the cost of our video ad some upfront costs. Let's make this one of the most successful kickstarter design projects and we can afford to go all out!

$20k – This is the minimum goal that gets our upfront costs covered. Hitting this goal will limit us to using existing tooling and colors for a few styles of hair.

$50k - Reaching this goal will allow us to release designs for youth baseball, football, soccer, and basketball. Pick your uniform and enter your town or team name, plus your name, number, and likeness:)

$100k – Achieving this goal allows us to tool up for lacrosse. We can also add hockey goalies, and a few new hairstyles and accessories, in additional to some inventory of an expanded assortment of colors.

$250k - If we hit this goal, we will produce hundreds of graphic designs for lifestyle and hobby. In addition, we will pick 2 new sports to add based on the top picks from our survey.

$500k – This would be awesome! As a result, we will give every pledge an additional accessory pack and continue to create hundreds more designs.

$1,000,000: This would be a homerun and our stretch goal, so lets band together and see how we can achieve this goal. We have some great ideas to say thank-you, so stay tuned.  Go TEAM OYO!!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and one way to mitigate them the best you can is to stand behind the right people. The following are some of the risks that we think you should be aware of.

1. We get too many orders and it takes way longer than expected to fill them.
2. If there are delays that move production past September, there may not be adequate production capacity due to shared OYO resources during the holidays. This would shift delivery to after the holidays.
3. We don't get enough support for themes that are of interest to you. In this case, you would need to pick a theme that we do offer.
4. Something happens to our Oyo sports business and we aren't able to complete the oyome project.
5. Our Computer code gets corrupted and causes a major delay in our ability to deliver. We have backups, offsite storage, and business protection.
