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.

Risks and challenges

First of all we have done this before ​- twice - ​here on Kickstarter so we know what it takes to run a project, overcome challenges/adversity, delivery time frame issues and deliver a quality product. We have been there and done that - Twice.

We have spent the last year testing, designing, modifying and retesting and optimizing the Sarvi Dock ​3​ design for a smooth manufacturing stage. We took all the feedback from our backers on Sarvi Dock 1​/2​ and improved on the initial design​s​. Now Sarvi Dock ​3​ is much better and refined design than Sarvi Dock 1​ and 2​.

After many early samples and test models we have made several fully functional final product prototypes with our manufacturer. These samples have helped us finalize colors, finishes and manufacturing details. Our manufacturer has tremendous experience in the area of die casting and we are confident in our timeline. We also have an excellent fulfillment partner to expedite the shipments.

Following the ​second launch of Sarvi Dock on Kickstarter, many inquiries came in requesting more device compatibility​ and simplicity​. We listened and created the ​Cable Connect System. This way you can use the ​included ​cables ​and keep yours. ​​We made the new Sarvi with the future in mind so even if you change devices you can be confident that Sarvi Dock will still work for you.

If we get enough people to believe in our vision of this Sarvi Dock we will communicate effectively, provide regular detailed updates, set the right expectations and strive to produce an exceptional Kickstarter experience for those who believed in our vision. These are the tools we have used to create successful relationships with our vendors and business associates.

Even with all planning laid out manufacturing is always rife with unexpected variables. We are the team to ensure transparency and communication to overcome these variables and achieve the best results. We thank you again for the opportunity and for joining us on this journey.
