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

 Patent Pending

ROCKit Litter Box is the Fastest and Easiest litter box you will ever use! After over 25 years in the Pet Industry and development of litter boxes selling hundreds of thousands of units to major pet retailers like Petco, PetSmart and QVC, we used that experience and knowledge to create ROCKit.

Our Goal was to create a litter box anybody could operate, the fact is we created a litter box that is so easy to clean you actually look forward to it.

We have assembled an amazing group of REWARDS, with tremendous savings and have even teamed up with another successful Kickstarter brand WISP! Check out our great cleaning combo - ROCKit and the super handy miniWISP 

First add 2.5" of your favorite brand of Clumping Cat Litter to the horizontal side of the assembled ROCKit.

Thanks to ROCKit Litter Box, say goodbye to lifting heavy litter to sift, dust clouds while sifting, frustrating scooping or expensive machines.

With our unique 90 degree design all of the litter weight stays on the floor as you rotate from on side to the other separating the clean litter from the clumps and lumps.

Why an Open Pan design?

A big part of the inspiration behind the new littler box design is the devastating loss of my little buddy "Kitty" (named by my then 2 year old). She passed away from a terrible nose cancer. I was worried that years of sniffing around in enclosed litter boxes her entire life might have contributed. In my research I found evidence supporting this theory.

For more information check out the link below from Pam Johnson-Bennett a best-selling author of 10 books. She starred in the Animal Planet UK series Psycho Kitty, and is one of the most popular and sought-after cat behavior experts in the world. She is considered a pioneer in the field of cat behavior consulting and has influenced many practicing in the field today.

The Cat’s Perspective of Covered Litter Boxes If you “think like a cat” you’ll start to look at the covered litter box in an entirely different light:  By Pam Johnson Bennett

  • A covered box may not get scooped often enough
  • Covered boxes don’t allow as much air circulation so it takes longer for litter to dry Odor is contained in the box, so it can be more offensive to the cat who is inside 
  • A covered box limits a cat’s visual field to see if another companion animal is approaching 
  • A covered box limits a cat’s escape potential and can create opportunities for being ambushed 
  • A covered box can make a larger cat feel cramped while in there

So easy you can even sift the litter box sitting down, No Lifting means No sore back!

ROCKit in your Rocking Chair!
ROCKit in your Rocking Chair!

Choose from Four great home decor friendly color options.

Granite Gray Box with Blue Sifting Screen. Flecks of Gray throughout the white give this a "go with any room" confidence.

Metallic Blue with Light Blue Sifting Screen. Awesome choice for bathrooms or Mud Rooms.

Champagne with Maroon Sifting Screen. A metallic shine to the champagne color gives this color choice an upscale feel.

And Finally if we hit our goal we unlock Kickstarter Black with Green Sifting Screen.

 Sifting Screen on Top - a closer Look!

So like us, Cats come in all shapes and sizes and unlike other litter boxes that can only be used One Way, you can dock the sifting screen on top as shown below. Simply slide the screen into the litter box when it is time to clean.  ROCKIt gives the Kitty more interior space and accommodates those extra Large cats.

Product Dimensions

 

PARTS

Parts List: 2 ROCKit halves, 1 Sifting Screen, 2 piece Corner Assembly, 2 Trim Clips to secure Back Lip.

Nested for efficient shipping and for small retail footprint

Perfectly compact, the patented miniWISP is the perfect on-the-go pet hair removal brush....

So how can we get this done?

Because of our trusted long time manufacturing relationships and teaming with a major Multi-channel Fulfillment company we have the road map to get the product from prototype to your home.

To reduce start up cost we will manufacture the tooling over seas but to reduce shipping expense and lead times our injection molding will be in the USA.  

Every decision we make revolves around our love for our pets and our desire give our customers more quality time with their cherished 4 legged family member and less time cleaning the litter box.

How will the Funding will be used?

On that happy day of getting fully funded we will begin the following steps only possible through your generous support.

1) Final engineering for injection mold tooling

2) Final Prototype to ensure fit and function.

3) Injection mold Tooling.

4) Flying finished tooling into the US.

5) Production Cost

6) Attend 2018 Global Pet Trade in March 2018

 

Risks and challenges

ROCKit is created because of our experience and knowledge along with meeting and talking with thousands of Cat Parents over the many years.

As with any project we have undertaken this experience has served us well in bringing ideas to life. We understand what works and what to avoid.

Manufacturing is tricky and there will be modifications along the way, this is where our long relationship and lines of communication will help minimize the impacts of any unforeseen developments.
