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

On the website www.xufoy.net you see what we have reached so far. For any questions contact feel free to contact here on kickstarter or via email: ms@xufoy.de 

The hole Project is a yet small but innovative one. The Designs and Ideas come from Malte Seidler (Kiel, Germany), the production is happen in Dresden, Germany in the professional injection moulding factory of Max Stauß. The Name XUFOY (Xtraordinary Unfolding Forms Of timeless utilitY) stands for plectrum design on a new and high level and for high quality production. It started 2010 with the Idea to produce Plectrums for Bass players. The Result was the "XUFOY dob" Plectrum. Based on this Design we developed and produced the "nap" and the "pyk", some very massive but versatile Plectrums for guitarists who need harder Picks.

 Now we decided to change the art of Plectrum Design in a radical way. Users of flexible Plectrums now, that there are annoying Noises ("flap flap") when you use conventional flat and flexible picks. With the patented noiseless Concept we are able to design and produce flexible plectrums without there noises. The "XUFOY puur light", a very flexible one, was the first Plectrum with this new concept. And it works. The "XUFOY Rost", a medium flexible one, shall be the second one. Notice: The Production of these sorts of plectrums costs a little money. If you support this Kickstarter project, you help to revolutionize the market for guitar plectrums and you get a few very innovative and high quality plectrums.

The new XUFOY Rost Plectrum (above you see a 3D-CAD-visualisation) will set a new standard in plectrums, especially for acoustic guitars. Its flexibility will be comparable to conventional 0.6 to 0.9 (depends on the material) Plectrums. But unlike conventional flexible and flat picks it produces no unwanted ("flap flap") pick noises. The gryd-like and patented design let here you only the guitar, not the plectrum. This is especially usefull for Recordings and Playing the Acoustic Guitar. The organic design and the polyamid material gives the plectrum a long live and protection against breaking. The grip is of course (gryd like structure) very good. It is a little larger, so you can raise the flexibility (hold at the end) when you want just play some strumming accords! For solo Playing just change the holding (more at the top). The tip is a little sharp, for a clear tone. But notice: You need not to change your playing style. This Plectrum just works as any other medium-flexible pick on the market. But it is the only medium-flexible pick worldwide which prevent typical pick-noises ("flap-Flap"). 

 

The XUFOY Rouble (above you see a 3D-CAD-visualisation) is a doubled Rost Plectrum, which will be a little harder and louder and more expressive, with increased attack, than the single Rost.

The XUFOY Rosteel (above you see a 3D-CAD-visualisation) is an exclusive gift for "big spenders"! It will be produced from stainless steel. There are no prototypes so far. This product will be produced not like the other XUFOY Plectrums. It will be CNC fine cutted from 1mm stainless steel and rounded with several industrial methods. So, this is also a project we can only realise if somebody pays for it. This plectrum will be not very flexible… It will sound very direct and clear, especially usefull on flatwound strings... But it will be a very longlasting plectrum of course! 

Risks and challenges

This is a complete new product. There are a few prototypes (see in the video), but the end result will be only visible if we have enough money for the real production. It is, for example, still unclear if the XUFOY Rost plectrum will play rather like a 0.7 or 0.8 mm conventional Plectrum. The only way to test it, is to produce it professional. And therefor we need the money. But you can be sure, all persons who works on the product know what they are doing. Look at the Website and you will see that we keep what we promise.
