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.

DON'T MISS THE UPGRADE PACK REWARDS - GET ONE iPHONE 6 CASE NOW, ANOTHER iPHONE 7/8 WHEN WE HIT OUR GOAL!

Help us take EyePatch Case for iPhone 7 and 8 from Prototype to Production!

EyePatch Case is THE phone case for camera protection and privacy! A unique phone case with a feature none other has; a sliding fabric-lined lens cap that wipes your lens clean every time you slide the lens cover. A quick flick of the switch and your front and rear cameras are covered completely.

Constantly wiping smudges from your camera's lens? Privacy concerns? No problem! EyePatch Case has you and your cameras covered.

COMPATIBILITY!  Good news! Apple's new design will allow one case to fit both the iPhone 7 and 8!

OUR STORY

Thanks for checking out our campaign! EyePatch Case has been on the market for just over a year. We launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring the iPhone 5 case to the market and were wildly successful. We then were able to bring an iPhone 6 case to the market last year and are now working on the iPhone 7 and 8 case - which is currently in final prototype. 

The patented EyePatch Case is the only case with a movable camera cover that can also clean your lens from smudges and scratches.

EyePatch Case is THE phone case for camera protection and privacy! 

A unique phone case with a feature none other has; a sliding fabric-lined lens cap that wipes your lens clean every time you open or close the lens cover. A quick flick of the  switch and your front and rear cameras are covered completely. Constantly wiping smudges from your camera's lens? Privacy concerns? No problem!  EyePatch Case has you and your cameras covered.

What is the EyePatch Case? 

EyePatch is a simple solution to a complex problem. At its core, it is a sleek and sturdy smartphone case.

The EyePatch switch 

Our key feature is the fabric-lined EyePatch switch; a quick flick of this switch and your front and rear cameras are covered completely.The interior of the EyePatch switch is coated with a fiber that wipes your camera clean with every flick of the switch.The EyePatch switch does NOT cover the all-important sensors on your phone, allowing for full functionality while blocking the cameras.

Here are just two reasons why you should cover your camera

“Phone-tography” 

How many times are you wiping away smudges from your camera's lens? The EyePatch Case has a fiber interior that wipes your lens clean every time you open or close the lens cover.

Peace of Mind 

Our EyePatch switch completely covers your camera. No more worries about snapping a photo at the wrong time or having someone access your camera when you don't want them to.

OPTIONS

We are working on multiple colors. At the moment, all cases are in black, but we expect to give you the option to choose colors.

TIMELINE

We are in the final stages in prototyping. I've been down this road before, so you don' thave to worry about backing some campaign with a team that has no experience. We expect to deliver within 3 months from the funding date. If there are any complications, you will know immediately. 

Risks and challenges

The prototype we have is still pretty rough around the edges.

I would like to make the case with a more durable rubber than the previous models.

It is going to take some time to design an elegant shell and there are always production hiccups. We have a great relationship with our manufactrer, so I expect us to deliver on or before January 2018.
