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.

  • Be intentional. Every day you're bombarded with emails, notifications, and texts. Go Journal helps you define what you want to focus on, so you're not blown off course.
  • Fast and simple. Go Journal takes 10 min a day.
  • Q&A. Straight-forward prompts focus your writing.
  • Celebrate the good. There are good things happening in your life right now. Go Journal helps you acknowledge and remember them. 
  • Write by hand. You're creating a time-capsule of you: your thoughts, your memories, and your progress.

Product Details

  • Acid-free paper. So your writing looks good for years to come.
  • 2 bookmarks. So you can open to just the right page.
  • Elastic enclosure. Great for keeping a pen attached to your Go Journal. 
  • Thin and light. Less than 1" thin, less than 1 pound. Go Journal has A5 size pages, about 5.8"x8.5", or about the size of US printer paper folded in half.

 

 

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter projects typically run into 3 challenges:

1. Can you make the product as described?
I've already completed the product. The photos you see are of full production prototypes. There are minor copy changes between this and the final product, but those are incredibly low-risk changes. This isn't rocket science, it's printing. People have been doing this for 500 years.
2. Can you distribute the product on time?
I'm already manufacturing a small batch of the product sufficient to fulfill all the earliest adopter rewards. They will arrive in my distribution center before this campaign closes. I've using Amazon's logistics services to ensure that you get your Go Journal on-time.
3. Are you sure you can deliver the project on-budget?
Yes. My background is in product management: delivering projects on-budget is what I do. Many crowdfunding projects underestimate the cost of bringing a completed product to your door. I've already priced all the constituent costs.

Can stuff still go wrong? Yes, it's possible. But I've arranged everything to ensure that this won't happen. In the unlikely event there is a delay or problem, I'll notify you within 24h hours of my becoming aware of it.
