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.

After having several friends and relatives ask about best ways to remember or store passwords, we got to thinking about the idea. Wanting to develop a solution that you can hold in your hands, that is safe from intrusion, and easy to use, we then got to brainstorming. 

What we came up with, is a thumb drive with 16 GB of storage, with a secure partition only accessible by your fingerprints, that will securely manage your passwords through our own software. You will also be able to store your most important files on the drive, and larger sizes will be available in the future.

  

We have already invested time and money to create a prototype of the device, and a large portion of the software. We will be using the funds raised on Kickstarter to complete the software, manufacture the device, and test both hardware and software to perfection!  

Our team has close to 30 years of experience from computer consulting, manufacturing and bringing products to life, to developing and distributing products.

The only thing standing in the way of safely managing your passwords and data, is your support.

Our device utilizes an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption, which is used by the US government, and worldwide. It is technically unbreakable, as it would take all the supercomputers in the world billions of years to look at possible keys.  

Only the programmed fingerprints can unlock the secure partition of the drive, and gain access to your passwords and files stored on it. There are no temporary files used or left on any device you use our drive with, so there's no way to hijack the data.  

We have done everything to make sure our product is just as easy to use as it is secure. Once you receive your drive, you will plug it into a USB port. Initally you need to run the setup on a Windows PC, because of how Apple allows secure software. But after that you can use our drive on a Mac without problems! A dialogue will come up prompting you to complete an initial setup. This will include adding your fingerprints, up to 10 can be added including anyone else you would like to have access.  

After that setup, anytime the drive is plugged in, and you visit a website your password is stored for, you will be able to populate the username and password. Since your password is not stored on the computer or in the browser you are protected from hackers.  

 Every share can help bring our product to life, and provide a solution for secure password storage and management. It takes less then 40 seconds, and it could be the difference maker for us.

                         The Future

We are not stopping at password management. Our goal is to help industries secure data and passwords ranging from government, medical, financial, and even equipment. In today's world of data breaches, it will become more important than ever to secure your data, and keep your passwords safe!

Risks and challenges

Challenges facing us are making sure our manufacturer has strict quality control procedures and sticks to them. We are also committed to making a device that you can take with you everywhere, so it has to be durable, so we have made several revisions to land on a metal case that also looks nice. Lastly, the most important challenge is creating a product that is truly secure from hackers or anyone else trying to get your information.
