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

The idea started with the need to capture self portrait scenes in places where a selfie stick just won't do. A pole, a tree, a window, even a brick wall can be the perfect picture taker. A scene like the one below can be made possible with your Smartphone and a Sticky One.

The problem is there were no mounts of this type that would actually hold a phone, tablet, or other items for any decent amount of time at all. So we set our selves off to make a better mount. After a great deal of production trial and error we found just the right level of adhesion and the Sticky One was born.

While testing the benefits of the large pad for smartphones and tablets it was suggested we do the same for the GoPro and like devices.  

For those who use a GoPro to capture life's events, why be limited by pads that are only designed for one time use? If you've ever tried to remove a GoPro pad, you know it's frustrating and it makes a mess on the surface from which it was removed. Switch from platform to platform using the same pad and leave no residue. 

Risks and challenges

Risks: We consider the this to be a relatively low risk project. The materials are widely available and there are a number of production facilities we can utilize.
As with all recipes, precise application of the ingredients are of most importance to achieve the desired end state. Our risk is manageable.

Challenges: The prototype of the product is extremely tacky which makes handling somewhat difficult until one has had a chance to practice with it. To mitigate handling we plan to develop silicon carry case which is one a handful of surfaces to which the product will not stick.
