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.
We created a backpack for the modern day travellers that carry a lot of electronic gear like smartphones, tablets and camera's. Why? Because using technology to document and photograph the places you've been is important, and people like us run into setbacks on our way. With the Numi Pack you can travel fully charged, safe and organized on each journey.
You can fully charge the power bank with a fixed wall socket before you leave. The solar panel will keep your power bank charged during the day.
The backpack is water repellent and the solar panel is water and scratch proof.
The rain cover gives that extra protection when there's a bad storm outside.
You don't have to open the main compartment of your backpack to get your camera out. The compartment is easy accessible at the back of your backpack. It can also be used for other useful belongings like a food box, extra shoes, toiletry bag etc.
The clothing sleeve comes with an handle, so you can also carry it separately.
The laptop sleeve comes with an handle, so you can also carry it separately.
Both the laptop and clothing sleeves are expandable.
The sunglass compartment is separated from the rest of your Numi Pack. Never loose or damage your sunglasses again. If you don't want to put away your sunglasses you can safely attach it to the sunglass holder on your strap.
Please help spread the word about Numi, by sharing it on your social media. - Thank you!
We combined our Passion for Traveling and Sustainable Solar Energy to create Numi. With Numi our main purpose is to make sure travellers get the most out of each journey by helping them stay fully charged, safe and organised on the road.
At SET we are striving to show people the benefits of Solar Energy and we want to inspire them to integrate it in other parts of their life and become part of a valuable community that uses and promotes sustainability in their every day life. Because small changes eventually add up to huge results.

Making life better by stripping down products to their bare essence, with a focus on functionality, durability and aesthetics. Studio Dos Santos creates gorgeous looking smart designs, meeting tomorrow’s demands.
‘’Products that make life better are the only ones making sense,’’ says Studio Dos Santos owner David Dos Santos.
‘’Simplicity is key in a world full of distractions, so we strip products down to their essence: great functionality and minimalistic aesthetics. ‘’This approach has gained Dos Santos multiple design awards and collaborations with leading brands, such as Coca Cola, Ikea and Maxi-Cosi/Dorel.
When designing, Studio Dos Santos’ starting point is the end user. ‘’We develop our products with their stories in mind: to accomplish a better user experience, great products need to contain emotional elements, creating a connection with its owner. This also leads to a higher return on investment’’.
Risks and challenges
Challenges and unforeseen events are part of every business, including ours. However, we have prepared ourselves the best we can.
We have a very good relationship with our manufacturer and we already have finished prototypes which means that directly after our Kickstarter campaign we can start the production and deliver the backpacks as soon as possible. We work together with an experienced transportation company and we have already taken care of everything that needs to be ready before we can start shipping like documents, certificates etc.
We will work hard every day to ensure that your Numi Packs will arrive as fast as possible.
Thanks for being part of our community and believing in us.
