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.
Koala is a simple and functional globetrotter bag. Minimalist backpackers will be satisfied with its efficient and quick storage into three compartments. Its frontal Baby Koala bag can be easily clipped on its counterpart, making up a single, comfortable, well-balanced bag. Its innovative material will reflect the slightest light.
The idea of Koala was conceived during a trip as a backpacker on the Australian east coast a couple years ago.
When wandering from the airport to hostels, from the bus station to the next city, your backpack is your suitcase.
In some way, it is the home you carry along. It has to be as practical as possible to make your trip hassle-free.
Being lightweight and practical are two essential words for backpackers. These two words are Koala's founding concepts. A unique and innovative backpack was specially designed to optimize your travels.
The Australian emblematic animal represents the Baby Backpack, hanging on to its mother.
The main risk of this project is finding the right people that identify themselves with Koalas' values. The main challenge we still have to face is creating an ergonomic back support specific for Koala
We have been working on this project since Spring of 2016. It has been an incredible human adventure and thanks to Kickstarter, we can now share it with you
