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.
My name is Zain Askari, and I'm the founder of Silent Hero: a mobile application that empowers students to quickly and anonymously report incidents/concerns about themselves or others to their school administration, right from their mobile phone.
More than 60% of bullying goes unreported, leading our youth onto paths of violence, depression and suicide. Silent Hero is here to change that.
Silent Hero allows school authorities to react quickly before things escalate - and that alone could entirely change the atmosphere in our schools. That alone, could save lives.
1) What happens after a report is sent?
A: The report is immediately received by the school administration which can then message back if further clarification is needed and/or respond to the incident at hand.
2) What if students do illegitimate reports to bully another student?
A: Students always remain anonymous unless they choose to provide their information, however each reporter is identified by a unique ID, which can be blocked by the school administration in the event of illegitimate reports.
I am seeking $30,000 in funding for the development and integration of the Silent Hero App. This breaks down to $25,000 for the development and hosting of the app into IOS and Android platforms, and the remaining for transportation, student seminars, and KickStarter fees and rewards.
ONCE THE GOAL IS REACHED:
- Silent Hero will be ready to launch in 2-3 months.
- I will travel to every school willing to join the movement.
- We will together, make our schools safe again.
If you have any further questions please feel free email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to answer them.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge I face, is convincing school boards to allow Silent Hero to enter their school system and replace the traditional ways of managing these issues.
This will not be hard to overcome, given the value Silent Hero provides, and YOUR KIND HELP in sharing this with the world.
