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

Imagine your pet getting brushed just for using the pet door, every time!!

As pet owners, we love our pets but we loathe their fur on our nice clothes and furniture! And we go to some very extraordinary lengths to reduce pet hair around the home. We want to love our pets and be proud of  our homes!

Groomiez Pet Door attachments are a simple innovation that will help pet owners to significantly reduce the amount of pet fur, allergens and dirt carried around the home, covering furniture and clothing.

Groomiez simply attaches on to your existing pet door via our inbuilt magnetic fastener. No screws or nails needed.  Then simply remove and replace for washing.

The main driver for the development of this product was to have a method of controlling unwanted pet hair without any effort required by the owner or the pet. Current methods require either the owner to brush the pet or for the pet to engage with some apparatus in a set manner. Time is a valued commodity for modern pet owners and pets don't generally use toys in the way we initially hope.  

We want you to be the ones who can proudly tell your friends that you helped bring Groomiez to life. During our research we found that some pets are abandoned because of the time involved in cleaning them. Please help us change the this by backing Groomiez and sharing this project with your friends. For being a part of our story you will receive our everlasting gratitude in making this a reality.  

Special thanks to

Risks and challenges

As with any project, unexpected manufacturing delays are a risk once material samples are in our hands. We feel strongly about delivering quality products and will not sacrifice on quality. Our estimated delivery date accounts for a 1-month unexpected manufacturing delay, based on our previous manufacturing experience.

If the project is substantially oversubscribed, we will likely need additional time to scale our logistics capacity.
