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.

About this project

 

For 15 years and counting, Mobile Edge has been designing and producing gaming gear with top brands. Good, solid stuff. Today, though—we want to share some exciting news. The game is about to change.
Designed by gamers for gamers, Mobile Edge is proud to introduce the CORE Gaming Backpack. With the CORE Gaming Backpack, Mobile Edge has got your gaming experience covered—whether you’re a pro eSports competitor looking for an edge, or you’re simply getting together with friends and family for a little good-natured fun. 

And it’s all backed by Mobile Edge’s team of design, production, and fulfillment experts, as well as our famous lifetime warranty. 



 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Designed specifically for gamers, the new Mobile Edge Gaming Backpack was designed to hold all popular models of gaming laptops, plus your related gaming accessories. The backpack offers three large storage sections that are pre-wired for a power bank or external battery. Four side accessory pockets are perfect for cables, phone, a gaming mouse or oversized water bottles. There is also an external USB ChargePort built into the pack that provides instant access to power for your phone or other devices. Place your power bank into the universal power pocket and connect the internal USB cable, then just plug your phone or other device into the external USB ChargePort for instant power while you are on the go.

This full-featured backpack is constructed from durable ballistic nylon and includes padded air-mesh shoulder straps and back panel, a padded top carry handle for easy lifting and a trolley strap for stacking on other luggage. The backpack also features a CheckPoint-Friendly laptop compartment, a separate fleece lined pouch for an iPad, tablet or e-reader, a headphone holder and a large section to hold files, extra gear or personal items. A zippered front organizer section provides quick access to pens, cell phone, business cards, keys, cables and other small accessories.

Mobile Edge's team of engineers, product specialists, and R&D types has been working with gamers and gaming enthusiasts to design, develop, prototype, test, and produce a new product specifically for gamers . . . and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. We’re sure you will be too.

 

 

 *Please note, final product design (shirt, hat and backpack) may vary slightly in final production. Be rest assured we will keep you in the loop. Thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

Mobile Edge is an established company with a global reputation. We’ve been producing and selling bags, cases, totes and other sewn products for gamers, travelers, professionals, and students since 2002. Suffice to say, we've got oodles of great experience manufacturing, selling, and delivering a wide range of high-quality products on-time and on-budget, and we’re confident we’ll do the same with the CORE Gaming Backpack.

We expect our Kickstarter campaign to meet or exceed goals, which means we'll have tons of pre-orders for the CORE Gaming Backpack. You can rest assured that every aspect of producing and delivering the CORE Gaming Backpacks to you, our backers, has been planned out so that we can deliver what we say we will, when we say we will.

Of course, stuff happens. From so-called “acts of God” like an earthquake or tsunami, to supply chain slowdowns or interruptions, to production and shipping issues, unexpected challenges can suddenly arise. While we don’t expect any issues, should the unforeseen happen you should feel confident that Mobile Edge will deal with the issue with transparency and attentiveness so that you, our customers and backers, are happy and proud to support our company. We promise.
