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.

THE GENEVA DICE - FIDGET SPINNER  

A totally new take on the popular fidget spinner and fidget toys. This original design is precision machined in-house from aircraft grade aluminum and brass. The Geneva Dice is the first and only fidget spinner to incorporate a Geneva Cam which translates a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion. The geometry of the driver locks the wheel into a fixed location in between rotations, aligning the wheel into the correct position to accept the driver for the next rotation. This continuous locking and rotating sequence makes this design look, feel, and act different than any other fidget spinner.  

OPTIONS  

The Geneva Dice was designed with six locking positions each engraved with numbers to represent the six sides of a dice. Give the Geneva Dice a spin and see which random number it lands on just like a dice. When the spinner stops, all four discs will will represent the same number. Other disc options include a coin flip set with H for heads and T for tails, and a Yes/No set which will answer yes or no questions. Choose the Blank Disc set if you simply enjoy the satisfaction of watching, feeling, and listening to this unique spinner.

Risks and challenges

After several prototypes and extensive testing, we feel we have a high quality product with a totally unique design that can't be beat. Although we have a final prototype, we will continue to ponder, test, and look for any areas of improvement to ensure our supporters get the highest quality product that they are proud to own. As with any manufacturing project, it is not always possible to foresee issues that may arise, but given our prior experience and functional prototypes, we expect few if any issues.
