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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

 

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.

QLYX – is a stylish SMART magnetic phone mount.
QLYX – is a stylish SMART magnetic phone mount.

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.

 

 

 

A combination of smart mount and application is designed to auto-launch the desired app: navigation, streaming services, or parking place memory.

Currently the mount auto-launches Waze, Spotify, Uber, Apple Maps and Google Maps, and we are constantly working on increasing the number of applications and widgets to choose from.

With QLYX you will be distracted no more: the mount keeps the smartphone within your field of view, while the application - your hands on the wheel.

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.

 

Our designers have been carefully choosing and experimenting to reach the ideal.

Every QLYX comes with air vent clip and adhesive pad to provide a perfect grip. Both of them were tested under multiple conditions.

The adhesive pad can be attached to any smooth surface at any angle with 3M VHB; while air vent clip is made from reinforced steel with a silicone coating to grip any air vent.

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.

Thank you for your support!
We love you <3
