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.

Dry 2 X faster

The main concept of Ruggy is the marble that holds the towel at a pin point. This technique allows the weight of the towel to hang free, while airing out the moisture captured in the towel. Ruggy allows more air to flow through the entire towel, causing the towel to dry twice faster than using a towel rack.

Facts

Towels retain moisture, allowing bacteria to breed.

Key Solution

To reduce bacterial growth caused by moisture and to eliminate germs passing to other towels, each towel should hang separately and entirely dry between uses. Ruggy allows you to fit more hangers and effectively dry more towels. A towel rack bar ranges between 18-36 inches in length, while Ruggy is less than 1.5 inches wide. 

Keep your towels OFF the floor and hang more towels.

Wood Species Selection

Natural wood is resilient, aesthetically pleasing, and comes with different colors. We selected EIGHTEEN different colors from nature to match your desire. Below are the 3 categories of wood selections; Classic, Modern, and Exotic. Choose the type of wood that catch your eyes and captures your heart.

Beautiful wood species for elegance that never fades.

How it Works

Ruggy is configured in a manner different from any wall hanger product. It has a marble that runs inside the hanger. 

 It's supported by a double-sided tape for fast and easy installation.

When sliding in any type of fabric, the marble wedges the material against the tongue of the hanger, causing it to hang tight. To release, hold the fabric and pull gently to either side.
