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.

Our team is a global company : www.x-tend.io , with many traveling inventors, entrepreneurs & designers with one common goal: make the perfect business carry-on that can get bigger for longer trips if needed and keep laptops and other gadgets protected and charged. After months of design and hard work, XTEND was born.

Why XTEND?

We travel a lot and wanted to make the perfect business carry-on that can get bigger if needed. We designed XTEND as the only SMART suitcase you'll ever need for your business trips and personal adventures! 

Go from a carry-on to a full size suitcase with ease in just a few seconds! Yes! With XTEND you can now have the best of both worlds, PLUS so many more award winning features!

The market is saturated with many suitcases and carry-ons, but none of them deliver all the features that XTEND gives you. When the carry-on is extended, Xtend® is the size of a checked bag. 
Whether you need a large suitcase or a small carry-on... XTEND is the one for you!

Risks and challenges

The xtend™ team is an international team (Gent in Belgium, San Francisco, Paris & HongKong). The entire team has been fully involved from day 1.
Twenty months were necessary to deliver the XTEND™ prototype.

The manufacturing process is ready, the factory is in Shenzen and it has been a partner of the co-founders for more than 15 years in different areas (luggages, outdoors products, juvenile products).

We travel a lot and we are the first client of our product, so we will inform our backers on a regular basis at the end of the campaign.

We know it is a challenge to go through a prototype for mass production, but we went through it many times already. We strongly believe that is not an easy journey to mix innovation, firmware, thermoformed technology, plastic injection, etc. That's why our commitment is to deliver between October and November.
