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.

Aerist was born in January 2017. Understanding the importance of oral hygiene, two friends wanted to create a better and more convenient way to maintain a clean and healthy mouth. Anything from eating to drinking or talking can cause bad breath and lead to oral decay. We hated having to buy gum and mints that are so easy to misplace and continue to rise in price. We wanted to create a way where one can effortlessly and affordably maintain good oral hygiene.

 

 

Our ultimate goal was to eliminate the need for repeatedly purchasing gum and mints, and maintain good oral hygiene. We wanted to create a product that is fashionable, lightweight and able to house a breath freshener cartridge.

We partnered up with Ceed Collaborative, a leader in product development and interaction design to achieve this idea. The challenge was to create a bracelet that is small enough to be fashionable yet large enough to house a cartridge containing the breath freshener liquid. After many revisions, we were able to create Aerist to be very sleek in design and have an access door to hide the cartridge present inside. Closed, Aerist looks no different than a fashionable bracelet. We designed the access door to initially open on an angle of 90 degrees. We later improved the opening angle to 105 degrees so consumers can comfortably pump the cartridge without discomfort. The finger cap on the pump mechanism was designed in a way that fits with the index finger for more comfortable pumping mechanism. We also added two side affordance gaps on both the right and left side of the access door to give consumer an easy way to open the access door and allow both right and left handed consumers easy access. Reinforcing ribs were also added to the inside of the bracelet to make sure when one needed to replace the cartridge, the old cartridge can be removed smoothly and the new one inserted firmly. It was difficult to achieve all of this and it took multiple revisions to make sure the bracelet is sleek and effective maintaining all materials used to be food grade and FDA approved. We are proud of our hard work and believe that it has led us to create an incredibly innovative breath-saving oral hygiene product.

 

  

We’ve been working tirelessly over the last year to bring Aerist to life. We need your help in order to scale production, and get our breath saving product delivered to your front door. Don’t let bad breath ruin your day. Please, back us today.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Risks and challenges

The Aerist team has been working diligently for the past year, including top medical professionals and engineers in the process to enable the creation of a great product. The only challenge we foresee comes along with meeting production and tooling deadlines. However, with our extensive experience we do not anticipate shipping delays.
