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.

Antikythera FLYREB is born from the communion of two distant activities but both need great care! The sky and the water - is born for pilots and divers. FLYREB combines two words FLY like flying and REB as rebreather a special dive equipment for technical divers.

Antikythera

Antikythera Greek Island
Antikythera Greek Island

The Antikythera name comes from a Greek island where in October of 1900 a sunken wreck was found. The date of the wreck dates back in about 50 BC. Within this wreck was found an object that only in 1952 was understood to be an incredible and complex mechanism to become one of the 10 most mysterious objects in the world.

Our Design

Every detail of the ANTIKYTHER FLYREB project started with a series of hand-drawn sketches. We found the solution to define the rule for divers. We focused on simplifying all the complexity of the product, giving a clean and modern look that is now the core of the ANTIKYTHERA brand. After getting feedback on our concepts from a number of designers and business associates (people we knew would be interested in our product), our designs went through various revisions and were optimized so that they could be converted into drawings CAD.

SCUBADIVER RULE CALCULATOR  

Example just fo Tech scuba divers, how to calculate the pressure at the limit of O2Pp 1.4 using a Nitrox 32 (NI)

calculation example
calculation example

 I° - Collate number 10 on the outer ring with the percentage of mixture you want to calculate in this case 32 as 32% of gas mix  

II° - In the outer ring, in front at the number 14 (1.4 OTU) in the inner ring, you can see the maximum pressure not to exceed 44 ( exactly is 4,375 BAR = 33,75 mt)

TRAVELLERS: Exchange Rates Calculator

Currency Exchange Rates Calculator
Currency Exchange Rates Calculator

 I° - Collimate the number you consider "foreign currency exchange" (example in YEN) that is on the outer ring with the "10" number of the inner ring. In this case 1 US$ = 133 JP YEN (example)  

II° - Do you want to know the equivalent of 300, 3000 YEN? Look for the "30" outer ring and the value is exactly collimated with the number in the inner ring. In this case 300 YEN = 2.25 US$ (3000 YEN = 22.50 US$).

The Making of ANTIKYTHERA  

We have chosen a manufacturing company based in Northern Italy, the choice is made based on its experience, it is now a historic company in the design and realization of watches for over 50 years, so great professionalism and reliability. Another very important detail to ensure a complete and complete cycle of the project is that the company is equipped to handle large production lines. Another not uncommon fact is that the company headquarters are just 25 kilometers from our studio so this proximity was important because it allowed us to oversee the production of the Antikythera watch product line.

 The history and the tradition of the Sordi Spa, combined with its constant technical updating, ensure high quality standards, able to meet the needs of the great names in the watchmaking industry, whose names must be treated confidentiality, in observance to the current privacy policies. In addition to manufacturing department for third parties, Sordi SpA is the producer and the worldwide licensee of MOMODESIGN and MONDIA brands, with its own Italian and international distribution networks.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
This project is the result of over 30 years' experience in diving and flying passion together with my natural aptitude for analytical observation and the desire to find solutions to problems.
For the first 30 years of my professional life I successfully conquered and managed a scubadiving equipment distribution company, where I implemented my management and innovation capabilities on a daily basis.
I have opened up new markets in Europe in the field of the distribution of underwater equipment and, thanks to a very competent and efficient team, have had a recognizable success.
In 2003 I decided to sell my ongoing business to dedicate my time and energy to what has always been my true passion: the sea and the sky.
Unfortunately (or fortunately!) My observation powers and the pleasure of seeking solutions to improving things and situations never left me.
I think FLYREB of Antikythera is a great instrument, complete with a wristwatch, with the ability to be an aid for certain computing needs.
Thanks to the experience gained in the aeronautical and underwater industry, together with the collaboration of my colleagues, I am convinced that I can produce an optimal product.
I am aware of the problems of production and assembly and I can confidently say that the supporters of this project will certainly not be disappointed.

The photos above are of the prototype for the ANTIKYTHERA. There may be small changes made to the watch for the final production.
