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

The ideenbrett is:

portable - handy - flexible - communicative - active - eco-freindly - light-weight - minimalistic - stylish - functional - space-saving

Technically like a whiteboard or a flipchart. But easier!

The Story

Sketches are two-dimensional elaborations of my thoughts and being an industrial designer my work always starts with a sketch.

“From the head through the hand onto the board”

Sketches are the basis of new ideas and allow me to make changes in a matter of seconds.

Flipcharts don’t allow me to work horizontally. The Ideenbrett, however, enables me to work on a table or on a wall. Ideas can be discussed and modified at one’s convenience. In case you have to change room in order to continue the discussion there or involve others into the conversation, you can simply take the idea board with you.

Because product development/communication itself is very dynamic

The Message: learn to sketch for better comunication
The Message: learn to sketch for better comunication

 

During the many years working as an industrial designer (www.wildereber.de) I have always drawn my initial ideas. Many ideas have been generated within very short periods of time. All I needed was paper, a couple of pens and markers. The ideas could then be discussed with my clients beforehand. That way I didn’t have to create CAD models or even design models that would have been scrapped later on. Sketches have been a cost-efficient way of involving my clients in the development phase. Numerous meetings including dozens of presentations have prompted me to establish a new culture of visualization. No lengthy presentations – just hitching up the knickers and collective drafting. Why are so many people afraid of drawing? Because they have high expectations on the quality of the sketch.

The idea

We needed something mobile - a portable drawing surface, as space-saving as possible and without rollers. It should provide for everything, that is necessary for effective idea or product development. That includes a pen, a sponge, magnets, post-its and a large drawing surface. Furthermore, it should be moved with ease. Who would want to carry around a flipchart?

The product

… should be portable and comprehensive, feature the advantages of a flipchart and have dimensions that allow for communication with others in the room, carrying a visualized idea from your desk to another department, room or even another story. You could also just send a photo of your idea board.

Discussing right next to a visualized idea, changing it and getting everybody up-to-date is effective collaboration which is allowed for by the idea board.

How I use the IDEENBRETT

I have the boards spreaded throughout my office - for different projects or simply as a memo board. …Sometimes it helps to give a sketch some time to sink in. Afterwards I put it to an appropriate place in my office where it serves as a project board.

Being an industrial designer I develop technical products together with constructors, sales people, marketing departments and model builders. I also design graphic concepts and corporate identities for enterprises. I apply (Thinking through the pen) and design thinking myself and furthermore lecture it in various universities. On via-p.de I provide respective innovation workshops where I already use idea boards.

Visual Thinking is part of the idea.

Die technischen Details

Von oben nach unten:

Es wird ein Leichtbaumaterial in Wabentechnik (ökologisch) verwendet. Eine Metallschiene erlaubt es mir, mit Magneten andere Dokumente anzuheften oder sogar Flipchartpapier anzubringen. Stifte stecken in der Aufnahme und ein Schwamm ist immer am Brett. Mehr unter:  www.ideenbrett.de

Manufacturing process:

In collaboration with a printing company we are able to fully individualize the idea board as well as mill the shape. Afterwards our equipment is added: foil, magnet panel, buttons, pens and a sponge. In order to do that we have to order a lot of material and rent warehousing space. Costs for software coding for future digital versions also have to be taken into consideration. Once the product is manufactured it needs to be packaged. The packaging has to be designed in a way that ensures shipments without any damages across the EU.

Why do I need your support?

As a product developer I want to establish a product family that can successively be extended and promoted. Unfortunately, I am lacking both time and capacity, which is why I am also looking for support in sales and production.

The amount of money

In order to have a certain financial room for manoeuver I am aiming for 10,000€. This amount allows me to start the project as such and bring it on its way

What I am going to do with the money

Using your funding I can pay for packaging, graphic material and the first production run. I then will be able to produce the first prototypes of the new equipment.

Future planning

I would like to invest in extending the product range. That also includes connecting parts, mounts, protection caps, carrying bags and new pens with special features.

My vision is to supply schools with idea boards in order to establish the idea of direct visual communication there. (Visual Thinking)

Risks and challenges

Extending the product range and development of an app takes a lot of time for beta testing and making mistakes. Particularly regarding the robustness, a lot of tests with children and other user groups are necessary. The learnings from this process will flow into the new products and make for a refined product range. StandArt and HalbesHemd are already being used and have proven themselves. As soon as we have developed an edge protector we will start sending them out to all of you.

Für die Erweiterung der angedachten Produktfamilie und die Entwicklung einer App braucht es Zeit, um zu testen und um Fehler machen zu können. Vor allem bei der Robustheit bedarf es ein paar Tests mit Kindern und Anwendern. Die Ergebnisse und die Erkenntnisse sollen dann in die neue erweiterte Produktreihe miteinfließen können. Das StandArt und das HalbesHemd werden bereits verwendet und haben sich bewährt. Sobald es einen Kantenschutz gibt, wird dieser nachgereicht.
