Qu'est-ce qu'un prototype ?

Un prototype est un modèle préliminaire. Lorsqu'un projet a pour but la fabrication d'un produit physique, le créateur doit présenter un prototype fonctionnel à ses contributeurs. Cette galerie de photos, de vidéos et d'éléments visuels montre aux contributeurs ce qui a été accompli et ce qu'il reste à faire. Le processus de développement est susceptible de varier d'un projet à l'autre, mais les étapes typiques sont les suivantes :

Validation de concept

Une étude visant à tester l'idée et les fonctionnalités du produit.

Prototype fonctionnel

Un prototype qui présente le fonctionnement du produit final, mais qui n'en a pas l'aspect.

Prototype d'apparence

Une maquette qui ressemble au produit final, mais qui ne fonctionne pas.

Prototype de design

Un prototype dont l'apparence et les fonctionnalités correspondent au produit final, mais dont les méthodes de fabrication sont différentes.

Prototype de production

L'apparence, les fonctionnalités et les méthodes de fabrication sont celles du produit final.

Same tap. 98% less water. The Altered:Nozzle is the worlds most extreme water saving nozzle. It installs easily into your existing tap. By atomizing water we can use 98% less water and still retain full functionality. And if you need a little more, then you switch to our regular saving mode. Still 75% savings, but all the water you need.

Mist & Save Mode
Mist & Save Mode
  • Fits into your existing tap.  
  • Super easy installation. 30 sec.
  • Pays for itself in a couple of months! 
  • Multiple finishes and sizes.   
  • Lead Free Eco Brass

Perfect for kitchen and bathroom taps everywhere. In your home, your boat, at the office, in your vacation home or wherever you have a tap and want to save water.  

Water stress is a truly global issue affecting over one billion people today, and an estimated 3 billion in 2020. It is a problem we need to do something about. This is our small contribution to this huge issue.

The old solution for saving water has been to restrict the flow of water. But that only works up to a point. When you're left with only a drizzle, you need a shift in technology. We looked at the problem from another perspective. Instead of restricting water, we wanted to use as much of the water coming out of the tap as possible. The issue with regular taps is that you only use a fraction of the water coming out of your faucet. It bounces of the surface of your hands or plates. Or even worse, it just passes right by and straight down the drain.

When atomizing the water we break it up into millions of tiny droplets. Creating a high speed, heavy mist, shooting out of your tap. This increases the surface area of the water drastically and makes it possible for you to come in contact with almost all of the water coming out of your tap.

The result was even more extreme than we thought. We could have full functionality in washing hands, greens, doing dishes, brushing teeth etc, with only 2% of the water compared to a standard saving tap!

One big issue. 2% is not so great when it takes 2 minutes to fill a glass of water. That’s why we’ve developed a switch to a more regular Saving Mode. You still save 75% compared to your old tap, but you get all the water you need. Perfect for filling glasses, pots and pans.

Being good to the environment should not have to mean being bad at design. The faucet is part of our interior design, something we spend a lot of money on. So if it doesn’t look good sitting at the end of your tap, then it’s just going to end up in some drawer. And there it won’t do much good at all.

 

That’s why we’ve spent a lot of time on the design of the Altered:Nozzle. We wanted it to stand out and make a statement, but at the same time it needed to look as an integrated part on a variety of different faucets. Finally we ended up with this drop shape. It clearly makes a visual statement at the same time as it makes it easy to switch between Mist and Saver Mode. 

 

 

First of all we think you should feel great about having saved the planet a bunch of water. But lets talk specifics. Even compared to the lowest limit of the Water Sense US standard, the Altered:Nozzle saves you up to 98%. And except for saving water, that means less energy and emissions to heat and transport the water. That is great for planet Earth. But it is also great for you. For an average household in Europe this translates to savings of €203/year. In US that number is around $255/year. Basically, you’ve just bought a great looking product that pays for itself within a couple of months.

 

 

After the Kickstarter campaign we will contact you so you can choose the finish and size you like for your very own Altered:Nozzle.The Altered:Nozzle will be available in the finishes below.

 

 

 

 

If you think it is difficult measuring your existing aerator, you can easily determine the size with the help of a nickel and dime. First remove the insert and washer from the inside of the aerator. Set a nickel on top of the aerator, and if it’s almost the same circumference, the aerator is a regular size. If it’s not a regular size aerator, use a dime. The dime will fit inside a junior size aerator and will sit on top of a Tom Thumb size aerator. 

The Altered:Nozzle fits into your existing tap and it takes less than 30 seconds to change it.

Approximately 18% of the water used in our homes is water running through our taps. That is equivalent to 32 gallons per household per day. If we do the math and look at some of the most water stressed cities in the world, that means: 40 million gallons running through the taps in Los Angeles, 50 million gallons in Rio de Janeiro, 220 million in Tokyo and 240 million gallons in Shanghai. 

Every Day.
And most of it straight down the drain.

 

There are already millions of faucets in the world. That’s why we've developed the Altered:Nozzle to easily install into your existing faucet in just 30 seconds. By altering your existing faucet, rather than buying a whole new one, we get the same effect at a fraction of the cost. It also means lots and lots more people can buy our product. And that in turn means we can save a lot more water which is kind of the point. Saving money. Saving resources. Saving water. Sounds good to us!

 

We’ve come a long way since Kaj first got the idea of atomizing water in the faucet. We have a final product, produced by the final manufacturer and we have come out and met the market. It has really been a long road, but we are so excited to finally get the Altered:Nozzle out to you. We believe that water is a basic human right. We must find ways to get clean water to all people in the world. It is not enough just saving water. We must find ways of only using exactly what we need. That’s what the Altered:Nozzle is about. We also think water stress is such a huge issue that we must find many small solutions in order to have a chance to solve the problem. It’s not a single solution problem. This is our small solution. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Risques et défis

Creating a new product is inherently risky, with unseen challenges that inevitably spring up over the course of development. However, we have already been testing and iterating for over 2 years. We have developed multiple generations of prototypes and have today a working final product that is produced by the final manufacturer. We will continue to quality control and test all products, but we are confident we will be able to develop the Altered:Nozzle according to plan.

With that said some challenges might surface that can create delays. A large order will stress our manufacturer and supply chain. This might create delays. The timeplan in this campaign is built on the manufacturer production time of 5-6 weeks.

Also, even though we work with established contract manufacturers and parts producers there is always a chance that something might go wrong. However, we are an experienced team and we’re using industry standard technology and processes. We are confident we can address any issues as they come up and we have built in redundancies in both our production and our supply chain.

The Altered:Nozzle works. We have put it in the hands of hundreds of people, collectively testing it for thousands of days. We have the solution, we have the process in place and with your help we can get this product out in the world.

Don’t be a drainer. Let’s tap out the drought!
