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.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

We are very excited to launch our first project on Kickstarter.  The name Vorx stands for Versatile, Outgoing, Revolution and Xenogeneic.  Our goal is to introduce functional but yet interesting concepts into reality and share with everyone that likes our idea.

The core concept of Hexglo is simple but very different from any other sports bottle in the market. We want to create a bottle that is useful for cycling, training, hiking and camping but also practical for everyday life use.

Everyday use Bottle 

Hexglo features with single handed operated lock & open cap which is stylish and ergonomically friendly.  As the same with all other high quality drinking bottle, the body is made with Triton plastic which is 100% BPA free and eco-friendly.

Portable Lantern

Operating the lantern is just a simple click of button.  The unique hexagonal profile design of our bottle body allows for a nice and even spread of light diffusion, which makes it ideal to use as a personal lantern at either indoor or outdoor.

Detachable Spot Light

 

The light module at bottom is detachable for use.  Simply detach it by turn and pull, it can be used as a wide angle flashlight.  For camping or other outdoor use, you can also hang the module inside of a tent or on a tree, and it will become a handy spot light.

Fits on any Bicycle Bottle Holder

We have designed the size of Hexglo such that it can fits into any bicycle holder.  When the light is switched on as flash mode during cycling, it will not only make it easier to locate the bottle but at the same time give a very good visual alert to others.  This safety feature is what we think is good for city riding.

Hexglo is also suitable for in-car use.  In case of vehicle break down, the flash mode can provide additional signal indication to other drivers and avoid accidents.

Soothing Mode

Simply use the breathing light function as a soft mood light for sleeping or just to relax.

Rechargable Battery

The inbuilt 3600 mAh lithium battery is good enough to power maximum brightness for up to 4 hours on bright and 8 hours on normal.

We value your input to our campaign

We have spent hours of research and development over the past eight months on this project. In Vorx we have a full team of design and engineering specialist, thus we are very confident for a successful completion. Your support as our backer will be the last piece of puzzle bringing this product into reality.  The fundings will be well used for the final touch ups of our production molds (which will be the largest part of our initial set up cost), and to meet with our manufacturer's requirement on minimum material orderings.  We will also set a certain part of budget on component sourcing and testings in order to deliver the product in it's finest detail.

Risks and challenges

We are almost ready to go. All the team members in Vorx are experienced with design, manufacturing and trading for international markets. We believe that all aspects of preparations are covered in this project, and that the risks are very minimal. However we are always prepared on the worst case scenario thus here're our list of concerns:
Funding Target:
We hope that we can meet with our funding goal but in case of unsuccessful situation then we will not be able to deliver this product.
Quantity:
We are prepared to fulfil larger than expected orders, however in case of order is much larger than expected, our promised delivery time will be extended.
Shipping:
Dealing with large numbers of individual shipments can be a painful task to our team. However we are in partnership with top tier fulfilment company, thus the logistic problem will be kept into minimal.
Lost Packages:
This could be an uncontrollable risk but we can assure you with our soonest follow ups should this be happening.
