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.

Maths can be used to describe the universe around us with amazing accuracy. From gravitational waves and the motion of the planets and galaxies to the interaction of subatomic particles. At this level, on the quantum level, matter behaves as waves, interacting and interfering in fascinating ways. 

I am a physicist and have learned that waves permeate every aspect of our lives and from very simple equations, complex and beautiful shapes can be generated. These mathematical models can be seeded with your significant date to generate a unique wave interference pattern, helping to connect you to the waves that surround us all the time.

With this Kickstarter, I hope to share these interference patterns, either as a digital wallpaper, printed poster or laser etched glass coaster. The posters will be printed on high-quality 210gsm matte paper in three sizes: small (11" x 17" / 28 x 43 cm), medium (18" x 24" / 46 x 61cm) or large (24" x 36" / 61 x 91cm). By pledging for a reward I will take your significant date or dates and generate a unique interference pattern. This pattern will then be printed along with the date to produce a beautiful poster. 

There are several options for your own design. You can choose from either a black interference pattern on a white background, for a sharp crisp image. Or a more subtle white interference pattern on a dark blue background.

I will also be offering posters including multiple dates, so you can include your family onto one poster. These will also be offered in white and blue.

 As well as posters I am also offering a limited number of laser engraved glass coasters. These will come as sets of 2 and 4 coasters, either with repeated or different dates. These are great personal items to rest your drink on.

Risks and challenges

The major risks to this project will be delivering on time. Each pattern will be generated individually before being produced. If the project is very successful then this could result in rewards being delivered later than scheduled. For this reason, I have limited the number of rewards for December, with later pledges aimed to be fulfilled in January, but potentially February if very successful.

As for production I am working with local printers and don't foresee any issue with printing, or the manufacture of the glass coasters.
