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.

The logos on this page have been censored or removed. This is due to a trademark dispute that has resulted in a name change with only 3 days left in our campaign. The new company name is Smart Hour and our logo is now SMHR, short for Smart Hour. This is an adjustment from the S HOUR logo which we previously announced. Logos will be in silver lettering and will be next to the three o'clock marker.
