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

All of us at ELO Labs are very excited to launch the ELO smart straw and build a movement, track the amount of plastic straws saved by using the ELO bad habit mobile app. With that been said. ELO Labs have worked tirelessly to ensure the fulfillment of a best in market aluminum straw for you our partners in collectively changing bad habits worldwide

Shipping
We will be using an integrated shipping and fulfillment software and to ensure packaging adheres to our green guidelines, we will be packing our orders in-house from our Toronto, Canada distribution center. Lot's of ELO staff will work 24/7 to ship orders for August.

We have sourced our aluminum straw to adhere to the best quality standards for western Food & Safety compliant market guidelines.

The challenge

Product Manufacturing

We’ve produced samples that have been tested by our friends. ELO Labs is deeply included in the design process' of our manufacturer and also the ship on-time delivery promise. We will resolve any challenges that arise.

Guarantee: We cannot accept used straws back (They were in your mouth!) as a refund but will replace any defective straws 100%. However we 2x quality check.
