Once a we had a basic functional design, we began prototyping. Working our 3D printer to the bone with over 40 Days of continuous printing, we printed out over 30 prototypes and began testing and running focus groups to improve the initial design.
One day while studying for an upcoming manufacturing test, I noticed every table was covered in an ugly mess of chargers. I immediately closed my books and laptop and drove straight to Home Depot, found an electricians fish tape, taped in my MacBook charger, and Fuse was born.
I later converted my college house basement into a makeshift workshop. Fueled by many nights of energy drinks, and Top Ramen, The Side Winder went from idea to reality. After competing in various business and engineering competitions, we gained enough traction to dedicate ourselves full-time in bringing this product to life.

Risks and challenges
We at Fuse have been prototyping and 3D printing design variations over the past 6 months to ensure this product is ready for you the consumer. We have also been working closely with manufacturers and expert sourcing companies to roll The Side Winder out as smoothly and quickly as possible. Unfortunately, there are always risks for delay of delivery. Our expected goal for fulfillment is January 2018.
Things that could go wrong and how we are avoiding them.
1. Tooling and Mold time is longer than expected.
- To ensure we do not over promise and under deliver, we have already begun working with manufacturers. The design is injection mold ready and the manufacturing timeline has been given a significant buffer to account for problems.
2. Shipping issues
- We have contracted a very reliable and experienced freight company to ensure that the product arrives on time. Once we receive the products, we have an experienced team ready to fulfill each of your orders.
3. The Design is not ready
- The Side Winder has been printed to almost identical specifications of an injection molded part. The design has been nailed down and tested, and is ready for large scale production.
These are some of the most common problems among Kickstarter campaigns and each of them has been addressed by our team and taken into consideration.
Although we have planned for the worst, there are always things that could go wrong outside of our control. We promise to keep you informed and to deliver as soon as possible.
