      Hey, I would like to see clearer examples of mood-based content filtering. Also, I don't think the partner's birthday example is a great one. Kind of makes it sound like it's for cheapskates.

      But most importantly, if I hear that music one more time I am going to blow a gasket!

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

An Online Buddy that (Really) Cares About You

As your online best friend, DupDup will not only get to know you and what you really care about – namely because you’ll tell DupDup through your usage and selection what is most important to you –, but it will also offer you daily inputs that will provide the kind of support that only a true buddy would offer you, such as: 

  • Mood-based content: articles, posts, and content in general that improve your mood and focus on the trends and events that really matter to you – after all, why should you read on your feed what FB wants you to see, instead of seeing what you actually want to hear about?
  • Friendly and useful reminders: ‘Have you taken your medicine?’ ‘Did you drop by the laundry shop to pick up your clothes?’ ‘Is everything in place to deliver the project this afternoon?’ These are some in-platform common reminders that DupDup will send to you – so that you can rely on only one platform to socialize, communicate and make sure that your days are as efficiently organized as possible
  • Family-focused alerts: think about a platform that tells you: ‘Hey, today is your wife’s birthday. Here are some cool and gift options at great prices’. That certainly is a convenient way of making sure that you don’t forget about those you love and what is important for them, combined with suggestions on great ways to make them happy which also keep you from breaking the bank
  • Success-driven suggestions: imagine having a social media platform that does not only remind you about the meeting you’ll have later on today but which also sends you a relevant, tried and tested tip that will help you make it a success. That’s another thing that DupDup will do for you

Empathize and Customize  

DupDup will build a real relationship of empathy and support with you because it’s being designed to be a person-focused platform. That’s why your DupDup experience will be dynamically customized to your specific characteristics, personality, needs, and preferences. For example, if you’re single, DupDup will share with you great dating tips, whereas if you’re married DupDup will offer you short but valuable insights on how to keep a healthy and happy relationship. If you’re into science, DupDup will keep you up to date on the latest science related news, whereas if your focus is history DupDup will tell you about important historical facts that will further increase your knowledge of what you’re passionate about.

A Good Buddy For Good Times  

Like a real best friend, DupDup wants you to have a good time and enjoy life. That’s why, again based on what it will know about your tastes, DupDup will tell you about new spots in town that you should visit with your spouse and kids, or about the upcoming U2 concert or new Thai restaurant that you and your friends shouldn’t miss. Think about a social media platform that brings the best that Facebook, Google+, TripAdvisor, Evernote and so many other platforms have to offer, but all presented in one same website that will have everything conveniently and easily accessible to you, with a dedicated digital best friend ensuring that you make the most of it.  

Happier, Healthier, Safer  

You’d expect your best friend to take good care of you and those you love. That’s why DupDup helps you to keep healthy habits that generally improve your life and make you feel better about yourself. At the same time, DupDup helps you to keep your family safe, being equipped with smart programming that allows you to easily monitor the online activity of your kids, while still letting them have fun, socialize and learn new things. 

As you can see, DupDup will be truly on your side. That’s why it will also have the following features:

  •  See an inspiring daily quote  
  •  Learn a convenient health fact every day  
  •  Start the day with something funny to have a good laugh  
  •  Get to know something new and interesting about your city  
  •  Read a motivating movie quote  
  • Have a suggestion to pursue as to your Horoscope driven talents  
  •  Hear the slang of the day  
  • Make the planet greener with a daily eco-tip  
  • And a lot more that we can’t possibly describe here…

The 3% Difference

Making the difference is more than just talking about it, censoring what a platform’s directors don’t want you to see, and pushing a certain agenda that is not in line with your beliefs. That’s why, instead of engaging in these practices that large social media platforms are known to undertake, DupDup is really committed to making the world a better place. That’s why we’ll share with selected and vetted charities 3% of what we raise during this campaign, along with upholding a permanent commitment to donating 3% of DupDup’s future annual revenue to these charities. That’s the DupDup 3% Difference that we want to make so to leave the world better than we’ve found it.  

So now you know that, with DupDup, the possibilities are endless. This is the end of the shallow, commercially-driven and spammy social media networks that you’ve been limited to and is bored of. DupDup is here to help advance your interests and make your day-to-day life easier, better, healthier and more exciting while giving a more positive angle to the social side of your online presence.  

That’s why we’d like to invite you to not only help the DupDup platform become a reality so that you can soon rely on your exclusive DupDup digital buddy, but we’re also inviting you to take an active and decisive role in building this history-changing platform.
