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

Anyone who ever installed or repaired a sink drain knows the effort and the frustration involved.

I invented a small device that replaces all the under sink plumbing and requires only a direct connection to the sewer line. It is a compact unit that is inserted into the bottom of the basin plug/strainer (which is the top piece of the drain system). The strainer is then connected to the sewer line using any flexible hose. You get a low cost, very effective and space saving solution to the ugly under the sink plumbing. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THIS SYSTEM THE STANDARD FOR PLUMBING INDUSTRY.

I filed for a provisional patent and will try to get the patent as soon as possible.

The prototype is ready. I also have add-on features that will make the unit more attractive and will give choices to consumers.

I have Master's in Physics. I was an executive in a company that did contracts with the US Navy. Currently I dedicate all of my time to this project. I intend to raise $300k.  The money we raise will be used on securing a patent, putting together a web presence through company web site, internet resellers like Amazon, Jet, etc. marketing to home improvement chains like the Home Depot and manufacturing the initial units.

Risks and challenges

Risk: Knock-offs
Solution: Getting the patent and forceful enforcement
Risk: Scaling challenges
Solution: combination of manufacturing/distribution rights and licensing deals.
Risk: Management
Solution: I have extensive experience in running medium size operations, finances and project management.
