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.
The Tayogo FORCE
A waterproof bluetooth headset with a built in mp3(stores up to 8GB) and FM player that uses a bone conduction technology so you can listen to music while also being aware of the outside world.
For more than a year, we’ve been developing the TAYOGO FORCE so you can take your music in and out of the water with comfort and convenience.
What is BONE CONDUCTION?
With normal hearing, sound waves travel through the air to the middle ear to three small bones, which vibrate sending signals to the nerves in your inner ear tell the brain what we hear.
With Bone Conduction technology:
Our headphones send the sound vibrations to the SAME bones we use to hear, skipping any need to project sound through the air AS well as blocking your ear passages SO YOU CAN STILL HEAR WHAT'S GOING ON AROUND YOU!

Risks and challenges
We're a small company, but we've been in the electronics business for over 10 years now and we're not going anywhere. We don't have huge budgets, but we have passion and love what we do. We'll try our best to deliver an amazing product at an affordable price.
If you are looking for a pair of headphones to swim with, or exercise with so you can listen to music at an affordable price, definitely buy our product. We think you'll be pleased.
But, this device will not solve all your problems. There will be times you may want plug in headphones. While it does answer calls and handles them well, it's also not for somebody who does a lot of talking on the phone. There are headsets specifically designed for that purpose and we want you to choose those products if that is what you are looking for.
We hope you'll enjoy our product, and thanks again for your support.
