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:

Today there are many gadgets that enhance a photographer and videographer’s experience and the quality of their final product, everything from a Steadicam innovation for smartphones to refined lenses to action cameras. We now live in YouTube age, where even the average person can create professional-level videos and multimedia clips, using the latest editing software, offering an enormous wealth of knowledge for the DIY generation. Yet even with all these incredible tools to create videos and shoot photographs, one thing has been missing. What is needed is a portable medium that would allow all those amazing images to be created and then displayed for large groups on the go, a medium that allowed a person to display their work anywhere.
The TrioPod system isn’t only just for the photographer and videographer. Here are just some of the applications that this portable unit can be used for: The projector screen for sports coaches, salesmen, businessmen, church leaders, outdoor adventurers, video gamers, and for outdoor camping entertainment. It can function as a small table for the outdoorsy person or as a banner holder for trade shows.

TripOS is a portable lightweight screen that would allow all those captured moments to be showcased for groups on the go.
$20,000 of the funds received will go towards paying for the stiching labour for all the screens. We are purchasing thousands of feet once we are able to purchase rolls of the material needed for all the ordered units.
Approximatelly $700 for the finished CAD design and then $45,000 to $50,000 will go towards the tooling portion of the project. Then once the tooling is completed each injection molded piece will cost about $3. These are the key pieces that will support all of the tubes you'll be receiving and connect to any tripods.
Another $25,000 will go towards the purchasing of the aluminum tubes, the labour involved in milling, cutting and deburring tens of thousands of feet with precision.
$10,000 will go towards ordering all the accessories that come in the kit ( 3M designer hooks and strips for indoor use of Trip Omni Screen Set of 4 S-Biners, 4 x eye hooks )
