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.

When it comes to change the blade, just place ZINC RAZOR upside down and make sure the button coms back to 0mm, then simply push the button, which pops the blade out.

 

Razor bumps are caused by shaving. Sometimes when a hair is cut off at the point where it exits the skin, it can curl back and start growing inwards. These ingrown hairs cause irritation to the hair follicle, which swells into a small red lump that looks a bit like a pimple.

Using double blade razor like the ZINC means no pulling and tugging is possible.Even better, the ZINC is adjustable,which ensures that hair is never cut shorter than the surrounding skin.

  •  SAVE MONEY

The ZINC Razor uses double-edge razor blades, an affordable, effective, and widely available option when compared to cartridge and disposable razors.Double-edge Blades are more durable than cartridge and double-edge blades cost so little .That is why it is easy to see how fast you will start to save money. 

  • Minimizing Pollution and Waste 

 Many people use a razor every day and tossing out so many disposable blades and cartridge razors causes waste and pollution. According to the EPA, 2 billion razor blades go into landfills each year in the United States alone.The disposable razor is quite possibly the most wasteful product in your bathroom.No disposable plastic junk to throw away

  • Shaving with a safety  

Razor produces less waste than cartridge razors. Instead of throwing away non-biodegradable plastic cartridges and aerosol canisters, the only waste is a recyclable stainless steel blade.

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter project, there are certain risks and challenges we must overcome to produce a fantastic product for you.
However, we believe none of these challenges are too difficult to overcome.

The first challenge is to refine and hone the design of the razor. Since this is a high-precision product, every fraction of an inch
counts in our design. The next challenge is verifying manufacturing processes and capabilities are as planned. In other words,
an amazing design does not necessarily translate into a manufacturable product. The final hurdle to overcome will be shipping and
fulfillment of the final product. A lot of Kickstarter projects get tripped up at this point, so we have enlisted the help of the right software
and resources to aid in fulfillment.We promise to do our best to make sure that everything is done efficiently and effectively.
Our design models have been inspected and approved by our manufacturing partners and our production timeline has been established.
We are excited to bring ZINC to life. Thank you for your support!
