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.

About

The EMERJUG is a personal urinal that responds to nature's call. 

The need to urinate is inherent in everyone's life. With this portable and ergonomic device you will never have to hold in urine for a long time, just urinate freely whenever.

Some of our target users include: taxi drivers, truck and crane drivers, bedridden people, travelers, kids, nursing homes, and in the future, self-driving car passengers, campers, hunters, private investigators, post surgery patients, chauffeurs, SCI patients.

EMERJUG ("Emergency" and "Jug") is the first product from our startup, EMERGERE (means: standout, arise, distinguish oneself). The EMERJUG is the most versatile and durable portable urinal EVER. The EMERJUG is designed for all ages and both female and male.

 

 

 

 

 Note: When used on the road, it's recommended to use the EMERJUG during moderate or heavy traffic jams and in rest areas.

 

 

Warranty: Every backer has a three months warranty from the moment they receive the EMERJUG. No refund fees. Free return shipping. No excuses. 

As of now, worldwide shipping is undetermined since we don’t have specified volumes, after the campaign is over we’ll send an email regarding the shipping information.

Risks and challenges

Emergere has a strong desire of making this product the best in the industry. Our purpose is to have the happiest and most satisfied clients. It is imperative to try our very best to create appealing products with high utility value.

As with any other startup, there may be many unexpected situations. We are confident on our design, process and people involve in the project, therefore we think that when a problem arise we will be able to handle it carefully and in a promptly manner.

Manufacturing, production and testing:

We have already have the manufacturers and they have all the capabilities to make the parts. The same manufacturers are the ones who are going to run the testing and will be in charge of completion of the EmerJug.

Shipping and Delivery:

If your product for some reason out of our hands is not anticipated to be delivered on the date promised, we will immediately make you aware of it. The company that will most likely do the shipping is a well-established postal service company, USPS.
