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

Also Interviewed on Radio Station 91.9 The Bend

It all started August 8th, 2015 when my oldest daughter, Luna, brought a broom from the kitchen to the living room, all while singing in the handle. I was amazed by her actions, but my wife said she does this quite often. After searching around the internet, I found that there were a lot of people on YouTube that took videos of themselves or their children singing in the handle of the brooms, but could not find any functional brooms that would actually allow the capability to portray ones singing via microphone and speakers. A few weeks later I told my brother about the idea and he really liked it and told me I should pursue it.

It's been a ride so far jumping into incorporating, patent pending, and prototype creation. Also we have had incredible feedback from friends, family and experiences that kids (and their parents...believe us when we say is it JUST as much fun for Moms and Dads) love!!

Acerca del proyecto - Todo comenzo el 08 de Agosto del 2015 cuando mi hija mayor Luna, trajo la escoba de la cocina a la sala, simulando cantar con el palo de la escoba. Yo estuve maravillado con su accion y entonces mi esposa me informo que nuestra hija recurrentemente hacia esto. Empece a investigar en el internet y encontre que mucha gente en Youtube se ha grabado a si mismo o a sus niños cantando usando la escoba como microfono pero no pude encontrar una escoba que tuviera la capacidad de tener el microfono y bocinas incluidas. Pocas semanas despues le comente la idea a mi hermano y al le parecio muy buena y me dijo que deberia realizarla.  

Ha sido una aventura hasta ahora entre crear e incorporar el prototipo y la patente. Tambien hemos tenido excelentes comentarios por parte de la familia, amigos y niños (con sus papas cuando dicen…. ¡Créenos cuando decimos que es tan divertido para NOSOTROS como lo es para ellos!) que la adoran. El prototipo actual de Sweep N Sing tiene tecnologia funcional de Bluetooth. Esto permite que cualquier tipo de smartphone pueda reproducir cualquier audio en las bocinas del Sweep N Sing y puede grabar cualquier sonido que se realice en el Sweep N sing.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest enemy is time. We have spent time researching and building relationships with product developers, who reliable contacts with manufacturers, but as we all know, stuff happens! Possible delays include;
-Toy modifications and manufacturing blueprints by product developers have unexpected delays.
-Manufacturing tooling and unit cost are much higher then anticipated. and additional funds are needed (Current estimates are from several separate sources in the product development field)
-Delays with approval from Federal Safety Agencies before you the toy can be distribute.

Riesgos y retos
Nuestro mas grande enemigo es el tiempo. Hemos pasado tiempo investigando y creando relaciones con los desarrolladores del producto, quienes son contactos confiables de las empresas manufactureras, pero como todos sabemos cosas pueden pasar. Los posibles retrasos pueden ser:
-Modificaciones al juguete y manufacturacion de los planos de los desarrolladores del producto,pueden tener retrasos inesperados.
-El costo por unidad y manufacturacion de la estampacion es mas elevado de lo anticipado y fondos adicionales son necesitados (la estimacion actual es de varias fuentes separadas en el campo del desarrollo del producto)
-Retrasos por la autorizacion de la Agencia Federal de la seguridad, antes de que el juguete pueda ser distribuido.
