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.
Technology is supposed to simplify our lives. But phones steal us from reality demanding more and more attention.
We got tired of wasting time using bulky car mounts that were supposed to make our lives simpler.
So we’ve decided to find a solution and developed a gadget that will make your driving experience safer and more comfortable.
Not because it's trendy to use “smart” today, but because it truly has a chip that interacts with your phone.
Its main purpose is to make your life simpler and more comfortable by taking away the necessity of launching an application before a regular action, like driving.
The mount is elegant and is accompanied by an application that does all the magic and has a dashboard with handy widgets for a driver.
The market is stuffed with mounts looking cheap and limited in colors. We are aiming at offering mount frames in a variety of colors to emphasize your style. With your help, there will be an option to order QLYX in premium materials: e.g. aluminum, wood, leather or even gold.
QLYX will change your driving experience. While plastic holders are bulky and require time for phone installation and app launching, QLYX is elegant and minimizes the time of routine phone setting for the ride, saving it for you.
So even if you own a phone holder and are perfectly satisfied with it, you literally don't know what you're missing...
We already developed all hardware and software, created several working prototypes, and even ordered molds.
We invested our own money, using loans and even pension savings.
We truly believe that our gadget will make people’s life more safe, comfortable and “smart”.
We call ourselves Innovation Development Agency, or simply IDA. Although it is our first Kickstarter project, we have great experience creating innovative, useful and ergonomic products. Check out our the website for more information about the team.
Risks and challenges
Our team has great experience in developing and selling innovative products.
Through extensive research and established network of fulfillment and delivery partners we minimized most of the risks.
We have already ordered molds for plastic details, Q-plates, magnets, BLE modules, and packaging, as well as developed software. We are almost ready to start assembly process in Columbus, OH.
If we need more units to match the demand of our backers, we will place another order for the QLYX elements during the Kickstarter campaign to ensure on-time delivery.
If we encounter unforeseen obstacles, we will notify all backers immediately.
We are very thankful for your support!
Your pledge will make a difference and change people’s life.
We will keep you in the loop with all updates and send you FIVE electric steel Q-Plates:
- Matte Black Q-Plate,
