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.

Everyone knows the importance of shoe polishing - it keeps the scrapes and scratches from gradually breaking down the leather. Without polishing and protecting your shoes their lifespan is significantly reduced. They will dry and wear out. While shoe polishing has always been a process of many steps, the old, time-consuming way of shoe polishing is no longer necessary.

EQUERRY "The World's Premier Shoe Shiner is here. Equerry is the first USB rechargeable shoe shining device with a built-in polish reservoir".

To ensure that perfect result every time, Equerry has been diligently and carefully designed to have a polishing sponge at one end, from which the specially formulated wax polish is dispensed. At the other end, the brush, of high quality horsehair rotates at just the right speed to buff the shoes and give a superb finish.

Would you wear a dirty, wrinkled shirt to the workplace? No chance! So why turn up with unpolished shoes? Polished, well cared for shoes say a lot about a person. They say that you take pride in what you do, that you care about the details and that you look after the expensive things in life.

The polish within Equerry has been carefully formulated giving a beautiful shine whilst also nurturing and protecting the leather of your shoes.

 

  • The sponge head is inter-changeable so that you can use Equerry with different polish colours. 
  • The brush head is easily replaceable if it starts to wear out and can be changed to buff different coloured shoes. 
  • It is rechargeable and a micro USB cable is provided. 
  • It dispenses wax polish from a replaceable capsule. 
  • The brush head rotates to buff the shoes at around 100 rpm

 Key Features of Equerry: 

  • Polish capsule inside has enough polish for about 30 uses and is replaceable when it runs out.
  • Brown, black or neutral polish are available.
  • Powerful motor and gearbox generate enough torque for deep buffing of the leather.  
  • Equerry fits neatly into a bag for traveling and because the polish capsule is less than 100ml it can be carried in hand luggage on an aeroplane.

Well polished and clean shoes are critical for making positive impressions, particularly at meetings. With Equerry it takes less than 2 minutes to polish a pair of shoes and this handheld, rechargeable electric shoe polisher kit makes it easy to get a fantastic shine every time.

Whether you are cleaning leather shoes boots or handbags, the result is outstanding.
