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.

Risks and challenges

Through our project we have done everything we can to insure a perfectly produced sphere. The First batch should go out as planned between May and June. That being said, our challenge is in finding funding, and sharing via social media and marketing. We are only a two man team, so included in our budget is a way to expand marketing and hire more team members to work with the technology we have created.

As for production, we can say with 100% confidence that the machined object is designed to perfection.
