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

NeoPixel or WS2812B LED strips are amazing, super bright and easily controllable from a microcontroller or Raspberry Pi. Whats not to love? 

The one down side is, they can be a little fiddly when you want to make a corner. Say if you want to outline your bedroom mirror or that awesome frame. Bending can work, but won't lay flat. You can use wires but this looks messy and is a lot of work for lots of corners. Besides, what if you want an LED in the corner?

Here is the answer!

Corner adapters
Corner adapters

With these little corner boards, it is now super easy to connect WS2812B LED strips at right angles. Follow that frame or mirror or room! They come in pairs of 2 boards, one with 4 right handed and the other with 4 left handed adapters. The 0.6mm PCB can easily be snapped and soldered to the end of your NeoPixel strip. Allowing you to easily and smartly tailor your LED strip.

When you select a reward you will get an equal number of right and left turn adapters, just select how many adapters you would like. Rewards start at just £12 (~$15) for 8 adapters, £22 (~$27) for 16 adapters and £50 (~$62) for 50 adapters!

Project timeline

I have estimated a shipping date of July. This is allowing time for a trial run, followed by a full production run. For something this simple it is unlikely that there will be any issues with the hardware or manufacturing, but it's good to be safe.

So please pledge and help me fund an initial production run of the LED Corners!

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

There are few risks to this campaign. The boards are tested and working, I now simply need funds to place an order with my manufacturer. I have ran two successful campaigns and with both, I managed to deliver all the rewards within the planned schedule.

Of course, there are always unexpected events or should the campaign prove to be very successful this may result in a slight delay for later backers. But of course, I will pull out all the stops to ensure everyone receives there rewards when promised. As you can see, it's ready to go!
