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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Jackster is a convenient, clippable 3.5 mm wireless audio Bluetooth receiver with vibrating notification designed to make your connected life convenient by putting the headphone jack wherever you want it. Wear Jackster by your pocket or collar to keep your hands free and your space clear. Wear the headset and headphones of your choice rather than be restricted by different jacks and adapters.
Apple may have done away with the 3.5 mm headphone jack, but with Jackster you can still use your favorite headphones – no ridiculous dongle required. Our team is reclaiming our digital lives and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Check out Jackster below, and thank you for supporting us. As our moulds and electronics are done, we can immediately go to mass production after the campaign and anticipate delivery within 2 months!
We were tired of the little inconveniences: earbuds popping out, being tied by a headphone cord to a laptop, the 5-minute scramble untangling cords before a workout. So we created Jackster.
Now you can use your favorite headphones with any Bluetooth-enabled devices, including the iPhone 7.
Keep your phone tucked away, the tangle out of your pocket, and your hands free. Jackster reduces dropped phones.
Cycling, taking calls at the office, jogging, driving, yoga, video games, weight training, and talking with Siri hands free.
Our small team is reclaiming their digital lives and they’d love for you to be a part of it too.
You can connect to all your devices. You can play your music in the car, at home, in the gym, and all with your hands free and your phone tucked away safely nearby. Go back to doing what you want to be doing.
After the Campaign
We'll ask you for your choice of color at the end of the campaign. All Jacksters are black but the button comes in various color options.
As expected, our customer service team will answer your questions during and after the campaign.
Risks and challenges
The Jackster team has secured manufacturing and has already produced 80 fully functioning prototypes that are currently being tested by friends and family. We have a great relationship with not only the manufacturer but also distribution teams.
As we have built many electronic products over the past 10 years, we don't anticipate any delays. However, we are still subject to external factors such as supplier delivery delays which we plan to provide contingencies for in case the supplier doesn't come through.
