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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
Food - it influences how we feel, how we look, how healthy we are. The easiest way to have a healthy lifestyle and stay fit is to eat properly!
Having the right food at an easy reach makes a huge difference over a long time. Each day having a healthy, balanced meal will make us feel better and keep the weight under control!
We created Fittbo to be the ultimate food box:
easy to use
easy to clean
the food tray is microwave safe
designed around a contemporary lifestyle, always on the go
thermo-insulated to keep the food fresh through the day
compartmented so it would make having a balanced diet extremely simple
The main section lids have a rubber gasket for each compartment and the food tray has a gasket for the unibody exterior shell. Even in the unlikely case you pack in a hurry and don’t close the lids correctly, the unibody shell won’t allow any leaking.
Fittbo is compartmented based on the ideal dinner plate for an adult.
For the main course, you have 1/2 of the space for vegetables 1/4 for low GI carbohydrates and 1/4 for lean protein,
To have enough fuel for the day, there are two small compartments for healthy snacks! These are a really important part of every diet. They help keep the appetite under control so you won't go and eat the first thing that comes into your way!
We thought a lot about how to compartment it. After all the research, it was obvious. Base it on the optimum portions of nutrients. This makes it easy to keep a track of the optimum ratios of food, and transporting types the food separately keeps them free for longer.
The size is 9.25inch x 9.25inch x 1.59 inch - 23.5cm x 23.5cm x 4cm, the best size for it to be carried comfortably while still having enough food for the day!
it weighs less than 500 grams
The materials used are all premium and food safe! Made From the Highest Quality 100% Food Grade BPA Free Plastic
We've made A LOT of design prototypes. The shape had to be simple, easy to use and have a smart, clean design you'd be proud to take anywhere. Every feature we thought of had to bee incorporated into the design: the insulation, the cutlery, the optimum ratio between compartments. It took a lot of effort and we are really proud of the design.
I’m a young designer, I've worked for some big companies, earning experience and understanding how a design gets from the drawing board to the finished product. I finally got the courage to make this big step, leaving a comfy job to create products that would make life better. This is my take on the lunchbox, and I really hope you’ll like it! My goal is to create a food box that would be easy to carry and use, with an impeccable design.
Risks and challenges
Because this isn't a tech product or a very complicated one production should go without major issues.
As with any first production run there might be delays caused by unforseen problems. We've taken a safe approach when we made our timeline and we'll do our best to have the products shipped as soon as possible!
Also we intend to keep you in the loop on a constant basis, sending regular updates with our progress!
