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

"The Wristrument smart watch is perfect for the aspiring musician in your life! It’s the only smart watch that can teach you how to play guitar.

 

It combines everything you need to learn and play in one device: sheet music, a metronome, song library, and a guitar teacher!

It’s made with patent-pending technology puts the instructional content in line with your vision as you play, letting you focus on simply playing instead of shifting your focus back and forth.

The learn mode teaches you the basics of playing, the practice mode lets you work on your skills, and the play mode lets you put everything you learned together."

  • Patent pending technology puts the instruction right where you need it for more effective learning. 
  • Learn chord progressions, scales, and entire songs with Wristruments user friendly interface. 
  • No more carrying around stacks of books and sheet music, your entire library is right on your wrist. Just open up the app and start playing.

We know how overwhelming learning an instrument can be, but know anyone can benefit from playing. Learning to play should be fun, and Wristruments aims to create the most simple, effective way of doing so.

What if learning to play the guitar was fun, and easy?  What if you every time you picked up an instrument, you had an entire library of lessons, and songs at your fingertips?  Wristruments uses smartwatches in a never before seen way to teach you the guitar while you play, without ever taking your eyes off the instrument.

Our patent pending technology aligns instructional content with your natural line of vision while you learn.  Instead of frustratingly switching your focus back and forth between reading instruction and applying it to what you're playing, Wristruments puts the info right where you need it.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks associated with our project will be integrating Wristruments in the most effective way with current learning methods. While we're not trying to reinvent the learning process, we know Wristruments will enhance it. We want to make sure we do so in the most effective way.
