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

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 My son was between six and nine months old during the summer of 2015. He was a very busy nurser and an active kid. Whenever I tried any of the conventional nursing cover methods like blankets, bib covers or wraps, he would get hot and pull it off. He was also not very graceful with his latch, which made for embarrassing moments for me. 

One day, I was pushing my two young children to the top of a local mountain in a double stroller. I was wearing workout clothes, which were pretty tight. Sure enough, my son asked to feed and I was forced to risk embarrassing exposure because I didn't have a good way to cover us while he nursed. That is when I looked at my stroller and thought, "why can't you just cover me?" And this is where the idea for the KooïCover was born.

I went home that day, cut up some things, pulled out an old sewing machine my mother-in-law had given me and made my first prototype. The Kooï Cover was born! Now I could let my stroller serve as an extra set of arms for me, while my son nursed comfortably without getting hot. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks: low
Challenges: high
RISKS
We have spent over 3 years developing Kooi Cover and personally designed and sourced the material. We are ready to green light production just as soon as we hit our funding goal. Since you're only charged if our goal is hit, you should sleep easy on this one.
CHALLENGES
We have carefully sourced all the various pieces of the Kooi cover and are in full expectation to deliver a quality product in a timely fashion. However, every single production run comes with some surprise or headache.
We have padded our timeline to account for some unexpected hiccups and feel confident we can problem solve whatever comes our way and still deliver the highest quality product to you.
If we hit a big speed bump, you'll know about it.
We believe in under-promising and over-delivering, and we will do everything in our power to do that here.
