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.

The only educational device capable of meeting the demands of your imagination.

Unlimited designs.

Unlimited customization.

The Magnon Spinner TM consists of 40 magnets and a low friction magnetic hub. The hub has 12 magnetic contact sites to allow for unlimited customization. 12 contact sites offer a high degree of possible symmetries (2-fold, 3-fold, 4-fold, 6-fold).

Explore physical concepts with this interactive educational tool.

Feel like a wizard. Master The Magnon! TM   

The Magnon Spinner is Patent Pending.

Support this project in its infancy and be the first to receive the Magnon Spinner and a magnetically interactive carrying case!

Aesthetically beautiful and incredibly functional.

Because the moment of inertia changes with design: spin times will vary. However, high quality hybrid-ceramic bearings allow generous spin times with any configuration.

Risks and challenges

The risks of this project are very minimal.

I have procured a good portion of the materials I need and I have a concrete plan (and backup plans) for procuring the rest.

I am manufacturing the first generation of Magnon Spinners myself and have a verified process on how to do so. Additionally, I am developing relationships in the event that I need to produce a much larger volume.
