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

Virtual Reality - What's Available for Kids 11 and Under?

Virtual reality is hot right now, and there are plenty of great high-end solutions that use either gaming consoles or high end PC’s to power them. They also start at $400, and that’s before the cost of any games or the hardware to run them. They’re also age-graded 12 and up. So for kids 11 and under, there’s not much available, except for the generic goggles that can play VR apps, but have little or no control – or if they come with a remote, it only works on Android phones. We knew there had to be a better way to have a fun experience with VR, make it work with a wide range of Apple iPhones and Android smartphones, and do it all for an affordable price.

At VR Entertainment, we knew there was an opportunity to combine mobile VR with great control, all at an affordable price of $29.99 MSRP. Our concept is different – we want millions of kids to enjoy their first taste of virtual reality, but at a price that doesn’t break the bank.

Fun, Not Frustrating. All for $29.99 MSRP.
Fun, Not Frustrating. All for $29.99 MSRP.

So we include with our VR headset a free to play app for both iOS and Android phones and a dedicated Bluetooth controller that's themed to the app. So that a child's first time trying virtual reality can be fun, not frustrating. 

Our controllers connect seamlessly through Bluetooth
Our controllers connect seamlessly through Bluetooth

With regular VR racing games, you only can steer your car by tilting your head. That gets old fast, and dare we say it? It's a pain in the neck. And it's the same with an inexpensive pair of VR headsets all the way up to a Samsung Gear headset - for kids who were born digital natives, this lack of control in virtual reality apps just isn't fun.

But with VR Real Feel™ Racing, grab our patent-pending Bluetooth steering wheel and turn, accelerate, brake and shift for intuitive, familiar control. And when you bump into a competitor or a wall, that Max Force Feedback™ will let you feel the crash rumbling in your hands! 

While of course our goggles are great for our VR Real Feel™ games, they can also be used with any virtual reality apps you can download to your smartphone. There are hundreds of apps in both the Apple Store and Google Play stores to check out, and many of them are free! Of course, children should always check with their parents or guardian first before downloading any apps outside of VR Entertainment's apps.

Proof of Concept - First Product in Market

We launched our first product - VR Real Feel™ Racing - into the market in Holiday 2016 and quickly sold out. We're excited that our product resonated so well with consumers and reviewers – you can go to http://www.vr-entertain.com/news to see all of the latest reviews. We're working hard with our factories to get back in stock with retailers to get more product into the hands of consumers.

New Products for Fall 2017

For this fall, we are looking to add four new games to the VR Real Feel line up, each with their own dedicated Bluetooth controller, free to play iOS/Android app, and still $29.99 MSRP.  We’re doing this Kickstarter to help pay for app development costs so that we can launch these four new titles into the market for Fall and have a full holiday selling season, which in turn will let us develop even more for 2018 and beyond.

Titles that we’ve selected include:

VR Real Feel™ Alien Blasters

VR Real Feel™ Fishing

VR Real Feel™ Grand Slam Baseball

VR Real Feel™ Motocross Racing

 

Risks and challenges

Because we have already launched the VR Real Feel Racing product, we feel that we have a better handle on the hardware, Bluetooth, and middleware that the apps connect with the hardware, so those learnings can be applied to the new games. However, because each controller motion is different, there will be adjustments required.

If we do not reach our goal, we will not be able to have our early adopter product go into production, and will have to wait for product to be ordered, shipped, and go into our retailers.

We are manufacturing the products with a vendor; while production is scheduled to be available by July 2017; there are no guarantees that unforeseen events may happen at the plant, but we are not expecting any.
